Winter Wedding at The Magnolia Venue

Priscilla and Steven’s Winter Wedding at The Magnolia Venue

Smoky Mountain Destination Wedding

Priscilla and Steven came all the way from Florida for their destination winter wedding at The Magnolia Venue. With breathtaking mountain top views, The Magnolia is one of the most sought after wedding spots in the Smokies! Aside from the stunning scenery, this Pigeon Forge, TN venue offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, a huge, well-appointed bridal suite, and shuttle service for your guests.

Christmas Themed Wedding

The venue was already decorated for the holidays with Christmas trees and lights. Priscilla and Steven had custom ornaments for their guests as favors. They used dark red, blue, and gold in the color scheme, florals, table decor, and attire. Check out Steven’s red velvet tuxedo!

Smoky Smokies

Once again, our famous Smoky Mountains showed off their namesake with a rainy, foggy, day. Luckily the weather cleared enough to keep the ceremony outdoors on the Magnolia’s patio. Afterward, we were able to trek into the woods a bit and capture some of that magical, ethereal light as the sun peeped through the fog.

Heartfelt Reception

There were some emotional speeches, toasts, and dances! I still tear up watching the father-daughter dance, even after 16 years of photographing weddings. I could really feel the love from Priscilla and Steven’s friends and family. They were truly surrounded in joy and danced the night away.
