Brides often ask me which month is my favorite at Honeysuckle Hills. That's too difficult for me to answer, because I love each season for different reasons. While October is definitely at the top of my list because of the cool weather and fall colors, spring is a close second. This is the time of year new discoveries are made every single day in our gardens. It's a time for planting new flower gardens and creating more scenes of interest for our wedding couples. Our goal is that no matter when you get married at our wedding venue in the Pigeon Forge / Smoky Mountain area, you will be surrounded by beauty.
After we expanded our pavilion this year, we decided a rock sidewalk would be a nice touch. The lines and color are inviting to your wedding guests, leading them to a shady shelter in the summer or a place to get out of the rain. It's a place that encourages family gatherings and conversation.
We've added a multitude of hanging potted plants scattered throughout the grounds. Yes, it takes me about an hour and a half to water all of them each morning, but it's worth it when I watch our wedding couples smile and enjoy them.
The pavilion has also made an even larger area for guests to enjoy our bride and groom's first dance. The raised area gives them a better view as you waltz across the dance floor. If you notice to the left, there is also a wedding arbor so that the pavilion can be used in case it rains. (We all know that rain is good luck on your wedding day!)
We're not called Honeysuckle Hills without good reason. We are the original Honeysuckle Hills, founded in 2006 by photographer Regina Starkey.
This particular Honeysuckle vine grows on the horse fence to the right of our wooden and burlap wedding arbor. This is only one of many areas our wedding couples may choose for their ceremony. Our venue has more ceremony locations to choose from than any other wedding chapel in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
We've planted zinnias and sunflowers in this flower garden, so be sure to watch for the summer wedding updates!
The yellow water iris is blooming at our little pond and waterfall. This makes a grand entrance for the wedding procession.
The pink primrose have joined in the spring celebration with the yellow iris. No wedding would be complete without flowers filling the air with their sweet aroma!
There is ample room for up to 100 guests at Honeysuckle Hills wedding venue. Our rolling hills in the valley of the Smoky Mountains nestle everyone together to view your outdoor wedding.
Wherever you turn at our wedding venue, a new scene of beauty awaits. Whether you use the Honeysuckle Hills professional photographer, or choose your own wedding photographer, be sure to give them enough time to capture all your memories.
If woodland chic is on your wedding checklist, our enchanted forest wedding ceremony location is filling in more and more every day. This image was taken in mid-April, just as the leaves were waking up. Watch for more images now that this area is truly a dense forest.
From the moment you walk through our doors, we want you to feel welcome. We are here to guide and direct your wedding ceremony, make your guests feel at home, and do as many of the "chores" as possible so all you have to do is show up and say, "I do."
