Colorful fall wedding at The Magnolia venue in Pigeon Forge TN

Smoky Mountain Destination Wedding at The Magnolia in Pigeon Forge, TN

 The Magnolia Wedding & Events Venue is literally on top of a mountain and the panoramic views are gorgeous. Add some chilly fall air and fog, and it is breathtaking up there! This venue has both indoor and outdoor options for weddings as well as a spacious bridal suite. Ronda and Eric live just outside of Raleigh, NC, but chose a fall Smoky Mountain destination wedding at The Magnolia in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Online Dating for the Win

Eric was about to give up on online dating but decided to look one last time when he saw Ronda. She fell in love with his perpetual smile, and he with her charm. I fell in love with Eric’s Ohio State Buckeyes Groom’s cake! Fun fact: they are both twins.  Another fun fact: Eric’s wedding day socks had pictures of Ronda’s face all over them.

First Look with Dad

Ronda chose to do a first look with her Dad right before he walked her down the aisle at First United Methodist Church Sevierville. His reaction was precious! Lots of tears from all of us.

Colorful Fall Florals

LB Floral made the reception stunning as usual with enormous fall bouquets and centerpieces in eggplant, purples, and oranges. If you are looking for an amazing florist for your east TN wedding, Lesley is your girl!

Live Band from Nashville

The Respectables from Nashville had the dance floor hopping all night. Eric’s twin brother even attempted “the lift” when the band sang, “I’ve Had the Time of My Life.” (must see photo below!) My inner teenager was giddy – Dirty Dancing is one of my all time favorite movies EVER.

Enjoy! And congrats Mr. & Mrs. Funk!
