"Where will I get Married?" Honeysuckle Hills has a variety of ceremony locations. Sometimes the number of guests, amount of time you've reserved, or the weather plays a big role in your choice but the decision is up to you. We have both outdoor and indoor wedding ceremony locations.
Do you have multiple ceremonies going on at one time on property? Absolutely NOT. Your reservation time is guaranteed as private while you and your guests are with us. No one else is allowed on property during your paid reservation time.
When will I choose? We do our best to schedule a tour the day prior to your wedding so that we can walk the grounds together. Most of our locations are always set up and ready to go, so after the tour you can reflect on the choices and make your decision on wedding day. Some of our locations, however, require more advanced planning such as our "hay bales in a horse field" option. For that wedding package, we need to have the hay delivered and put into place since it's not stored on site.
Aside from our specialty packages, it's always best to wait until your visit the day before your wedding to choose the ceremony location, because the seasons continuously change the look of everything, everywhere. Regina and Aunt Sharon are also continuously coming up with new ideas.
And now, on to the options Regina and Aunt Sharon have created!
The white flowers, ferns, and vases filled with whimsical wedding decor in greens and browns are always present. For this wedding, Aunt Sharon added sunflowers to the basic white theme. We do our best to have a flower that will at least closely match your own wedding color, and we'll add it to personalize your ceremony site.

Honeysuckle Hills abounds with flowers everywhere! Our many flower gardens attract hundreds of butterflies and birds.
This was by far, hands down... our most popular wedding ceremony location for 2015 AND 2016. Even though we also have an "Enchanted Forest" ceremony area, the willow tree is simply a miniature version of woodland enchantment. Every time I think of the brides who told me stories of playing beneath their grandmother's weeping willow as a child, or having their first kiss beneath one it gives me chills!
This area is best for couples only with their children, but we can also move a few log benches for guests up to 25. Please note that even though we obviously have room to bring down more benches, once you exceed four the guests in the back rows can't see you beneath the willow. If your guest count is higher than 25, know that we can still do photographs of you later beneath its loving branches.
Aunt Sharon always has little mason jars or other unique items with candles hanging on the limbs...
|Potted plants mark the entrance to the willow, and burlap bows hold back the front limbs for your entrance|
|A fall wedding beneath the willow. We add enough benches for your guests along with other potted flowers. 30 guests is the recommended maximum for the willow tree to ensure all guests can see you|
Our weeping willow tree is just as alluring, if not more so, in the fall. Its leaves have a golden cast, intensified by the autumn sunlight.
|Benches are always in place to accommodate up to 75 of your guests|
|Our horses, Ben and Sugar, often come to see who's walking down the aisle|
|Ferns, lanterns, or other potted plants can be added for your wedding on the ledges|
|The stone wedding arch in May with our roses and honeysuckle in bloom. The spray on top was placed by Aunt Sharon and can be done in any color.|
|The Smoky Mountain wedding waterfall in early spring|
|The wedding waterfall comes alive more as the spring season progresses. Our gardens are the most beautiful you'll find in Pigeon Forge|
The yellow water iris is in bloom from around the first of May through the first of June.
The green foliage you see to the right of the wedding couple are lilies, which bloom from early June through the first of July.
We always have potted flowers and other annuals like you see in the foreground.
|Our waterfall is taller this year (2017) and has the perfect ledge area for wedding photographs|
|New for 2017, the Tree Limb Foot Bridge, leading to the enchanted forest wedding ceremony site|
The enchanted forest is gorgeous any time of year, but is best from mid-May through the end of October when leaves are on the trees. The rich, golden colors of the fall leaves in the Smoky Mountains make our enchanted forest truly magical! The foliage creates a cozy canopy.
This site is best for couples only, or up to ten wedding guests. There is only room for about ten wooden chairs.
You can access this location two different ways. As of 2017, we now have a new tree limb foot bridge, giving better access to those in wheel chairs or who have trouble walking. The second way is across our original arched bridge, behind the pond, and a short distance on the woodland trail that leads to the back end of the horse field. This route is an old cattle trail, and best suited for those who have no difficulty walking on uneven surfaces (tree roots, rocks, etc.)
We can add brown lanterns with battery powered fairy lights for a truly romantic experience. The horses can be fed at a near by fence, and they're happy to be a part of your ceremony.
