A Country Charm All-Inclusive Wedding for 50

A Country Charm Wedding

How to Reserve an all-inclusive wedding with reception for 50 guests in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg

I've found that a lot of brides love planning their wedding, at least when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding dress, rings, shoes, and colors.  The adventure of choosing a wedding venue is also a big thrill, especially in the Pigeon Forge and Smoky Mountain area.  One would think the enormous variety of wedding venues available here would make the choice difficult.  However, when it comes to the bride who likes open country spaces with a dash of vintage... Honeysuckle Hills wins every time.  And when it comes to the more difficult planning to pull off a destination wedding, our staff makes it a breeze.

Here's what it costs, and what's included:

The Country Charm Wedding Package 
The Honeysuckle Hills all-inclusive wedding for 50 guests

  • Wedding cake to serve 50 (your choice of design and flavors by Chef Tony as well)

Regina welcomes you to use the photographer of your choice.  If you are unsure who to use, here's a great article to help you decide:

Three hours of wedding photography will cover the most important things like getting ready, the ceremony, family and wedding party, and creative couples images.  Depending on the itinerary chosen, it may also include things like the cake cutting, toasts, and first dances.

Should you wish to add more photography time, you may do so for $750 per hour.  This will also increase your product credit (allowing you to choose a higher end wedding album!)

What can I use my product credit for? 

In addition to fine art prints, canvases, and giclees, we have many wedding albums to choose from like the ones you see below.  Albums start at $300. 

By keeping the photography in your wedding package, you'll receive the  flash drive of all your wedding images taken that day (even the ones you didn't select for an album or prints with your product credit)  Our albums are of much higher quality than you'll find in retail sources, and you don't have the burden of designing it. 

The mouth-watering, delicious food...

Chef Tony deserves all-out praise here, because everyone knows that second to creative wedding photography, the menu is the most important!  This all-inclusive wedding package for 50 guests includes the famous Chef Tony of  Should you like a few more close friends to share your happiness, simply add $35 per person.  This increases the food quantity and makes the wedding cake bigger, too.

We've worked with several caterers over our ten year existence, and Chef Tony is by far our catering vendor of choice.  You may not know it, but many caterers don't even let you keep food that is left over.  Not that there's much chance any will be left, mind you, (his selections are absolutely mouth watering!)  But if there is, he will box it up for you as a courtesy so that you may eat the leftovers during your honeymoon.

Chef Tony is always happy to introduce himself and discuss your menu options, so please feel free to inquire with him through his website.  Regina is also happy to make this connection for you, allowing Chef Tony to contact you at your convenience.

Let them eat cake....

 Not only will Chef Tony set up a wedding day spread to delight the hearts and stomachs of all present, he will also design and bake your wedding cake!  If you have no idea what you want, he knows how to please by asking a few simple questions.  If you already have a cake (or two) on your Pinterest board, just send it to him.  He has never let a bride down yet with one of his sugary masterpieces.

Delight the heart with flowers.... has been part of our wedding family for our full twelve years of existence.  Kelly and Kris have a syrupy sweet way of speaking their way into your heart, and that's why we provide a $500 credit in our Country Charm wedding package so that they can create your wedding bouquets, corsages, and more.  They'll even deliver on wedding day, and Regina will be sure your colorful accents are waiting for you in your dressing room.  We'll even pin up all the boys and make sure the mothers and grandmothers proudly wear their decorations, too.

We prefer the floral credit, because some brides like daisies and some like orchids.  It's completely up to you how you spend your credit with From the Heart Florist.  If for some reason you do not need this service, the credit can be removed from your package price.  If for some reason you go over your credit with From the Heart, they will bill you for the difference in price.

Dance, Baby, Dance!

Our pavilion has ample space not only for the talented team at but it may also be used for a rain plan.  We have plenty of benches to spread out for your guests to view the ceremony should you have the good luck of rain on your wedding day.  

Scott, the team leader at Knox Vegas DJ's has an on-line planner we'll share with you to choose all your announcements, ceremony, and dance music.  Most brides find his website super easy to plan their wedding day music, but if you have no clue where to start we'll set up a phone or in-person consultation with Scott for you.

The Southeast's Best Photographer is right here...

Remember, if you'd like the images as seen on our website,, Regina can be added by the hour.  Consider at least an hour of her creative imagery to make your wedding day complete and the memories timeless.  Our photographer is required for wedding photographs with our horses.
