We all dream of having the perfect wedding and there are many factors that go into it. From finding that perfect dress to scoring the venue of your dreams, you want everything to be perfect. As soon as you know you’re going to get married soon, it’s time to start looking for a venue. This takes time and patience, so don’t try to rush into it. Unless you have your venue picked out since you were 16, I’d recommend you to check out your options and go for something that not only fits your budget but also is also something that gets you even more excited to get married.
Since we’re on the topic of wedding venues, I have an amazing recommendation for you. The Stables at Strawberry Creek has been a super popular pick among couples for a while now and for good reason. The place has so much to offer and can easily become a space to have your dream wedding.
The Stables at Strawberry Creek is located in Knoxville, Tennessee. The ranch wedding venue has been around since 2015 and has seen many couples come together as one and tie the knot as their friends and family witness the magical moment. The 55 acres of land features the scenic rolling hills that make for such a beautiful and peaceful environment. Whether you’re a local in the area or looking to have a destination wedding, the Stables at Strawberry Creek makes for a perfect setting to say your wedding vows.
When picking out a wedding venue, there are a number of factors that need to be considered. One thing that I think we can all agree on, it is convenient for you and your guests to have the wedding ceremony and reception in the same location. If that is what you plan on doing, then you surely need a venue that is big enough to have both. A big reason why the Stables at Strawberry Creek would be a good fit is because of the large piece of land and the endless possibilities. You can enjoy both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions without having to driving to a different location for each. The venue also has a hiking trail, freshwater spring and a historic overnight log cabin that the wedding party can stay in.
The Stables at Strawberry Creek can house 300 of your guests so you don’t have to worry about leaving anyone behind. They offer various wedding packages which include engagements parties, bridal showers, elopements, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and receptions. You can literally make the Stables at Strawberry Creek the epicenter of your celebrations.
The Stables at Strawberry Creek isn’t just a space to get married at. The venue offers all-inclusive packages which include planning, coordination, decoration and even in-house catering and bar services. That is perfected for couples looking for a more relaxed way to plan their wedding.
Dara’s Garden is a beautiful wedding venue located in South Knoxville that can accommodate up to 200 guests. One thing I love about this venue is you have the option to have the venue for 12 full hours (hair and makeup in the bridal suite!) and you are able to set up the decorations the day before!
The Kincaid House is truly a unique venue located about 30 minutes outside Knoxville. Their garden setting is absolutely breathtaking and would be beautiful for a spring wedding!
I honestly have a hard time trying to describe this incredible venue. I am a huge fan of venues with a view, but something about the Quarry and the beautiful stone background with delicate floral arrangements is just so beautiful. This one is definitely a must check out!
The Magnolia is an all-time favorite venue located about an hour from Knoxville. One awesome benefit of getting married in Pigeon Forge is there are tons and tons of restaurants and lodging for you and your guests. This outdoor Knoxville wedding venue can accommodate 100 guests.
The Trillium Wedding Venue is located in Sevierville, approximately 40 minutes from Knoxville. This stunning venue gives you full access (and views to match!) of those beautiful Smokies we all know and love. This is a bonus listing because it isn’t open yet! But, contact them to book because they are taking bookings for Fall 2021!
Like I mentioned earlier, there are a number of factors considered when picking out a wedding venue. One of them includes making sure that it’s the perfect style you want to see in your wedding photos. You want variety along with a scenic setting. Lucky for you, The Stables at Strawberry Creek ticks all those boxes. The venue is spread over 50 acres of land, so we will have dozens of different spots to have your wedding portriats done. The endless mountains and hills will make for dreamy images where you can let loose and candidly pose in front of the camera.
I feel truly honored when a couple picks me to capture the most important day in their life. Being invited to experience your love story is a privilege and I intend on making you proud of that choice. My photography style is candid and fun so you can remember your wedding day exactly how it unfolded without having to go throw various posed captures. You can check out more about my style here.
Your wedding day images will be timeless photographs just like all the images on my website. Check out my portfolio and contact me today so we can chat about your wedding! I can’t wait to hear from you!
