Smoky Mountain Destination Wedding

at The Magnolia Event Venue in Pigeon Forge, TN


Sherry and Bruce chose to marry in the clouds at The Magnolia’s mountaintop event venue. Hailing from Pennsylvania, the couple wanted a Smoky Mountain destination wedding where guests from all over the northeast could relax and have a little southern vacation while celebrating with them.


When choosing a wedding color scheme, they kept with the traditional Tennessee orange with hints of peach & coral. For example, Bruce wore UT socks, a Big Orange bowtie, & suspenders with his gray suit, and everyone danced to Rocky Top at the reception. They even sang the “Woo!” in the right spot!


Bruce is a huge Blake Shelton fan, so Sherry brought a life-sized cardboard cut out of the country singer to surprise Bruce in what he thought was the first look with his bride-to-be. His face was priceless! I loved that their entire wedding party was their immediate family, and that they were each walked down the aisle by their grown children. So sweet!

Enjoy a little taste of this Smoky Mountain destination wedding.
