The Magnolia Wedding Venue

Get to know one of Knoxville’s premier wedding venues, The Magnolia.

If there was ever a venue that has it all, it would absolutely be The Magnolia Venue. I could seriously go on and on about how much I love it! That’s probably due to the fact that you get the best of both worlds. You have a stunning elopement-worthy backdrop of The Great Smoky Mountains and the ability to have your friends and family (all 100 of them!) there to celebrate your love. It’s a recipe for a seriously magical day!

So why don’t we start with some fast facts about The Magnolia Venue

  • Located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee (less than an hour from Knoxville!)
  • You can accommodate up to 100 guests
  • You have access to a stunning indoor barn for your ceremony in the case of inclement weather (read why that is SO important here!)
  • On your wedding day, you will have the venue from 10 am to 11 pm, and The Magnolia professionally cleans the venue after every event (please take your personal belongings with you though!)
  • You have access to a beautiful Bridal Suite, complete with a makeup bar and a balcony to enjoy private views of the mountains

What do past couples think of their experience at the Magnolia?

You can find reviews for The Magnolia literally all over the web, here are some recent ones I will share from Wedding Wire:

Absolutely in love with The Magnolia. The moment we arrived to the mountain, we knew this was our venue. Everyone was extremely professional and helpful even during this rough time. Highly recommend The Magnolia to any bride!

The Magnolia had the perfect Smoky Mountain views for our wedding! The venue is beautiful and makes for absolutely gorgeous pictures! I could not have been happier with my venue selection and the staff is wonderful to correspond with also!

My wedding was everything I’ve ever wanted! My dream wedding! And a BIG part of that is all thanks to The Magnolia! The location is absolutely stunning! I will never get over it! I did a destination wedding and this venue allowed me to fit my 100 guests, has a beautiful view of the smokies, a lot of accommodations within 10 miles for all of my guests, the perfect bridal suite for the cutest pictures, a dance floor under the stars and access to open and close the venue for any type of weather. There is even a beautiful, private spot for a first look! It was my perfect day! And a day many won’t forget!

Thinking about getting married at The Magnolia?

Hiring a professional wedding photographer you absolutely love and click with is such an important step to make sure that you can capture all the amazing moments you will have at your wedding. These photographs will act as a ticket for traveling back in time and having a look at all the beautiful memories you created with your loved ones.

I have been working as a professional photographer for over 8 years. Throughout that time I realized that the intimate moments in between the poses were the ones most cherished. My wedding work has been seen in places like The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Carolinas Magazine, Embrace Beauty Magazine, and many other leading industry publications. I’m sincerely grateful for every single one of them, and for the others yet to come. But none of that matters without the experience, the fun, and the results that everyone feels when they look back through their photographs.
