Ceremony Locations

Our venue has several choices for ceremony locations, each a unique selection for your guest count and what the weather is like. Rest easy knowing that we always have alternate plans in place for the “what if’s.”
Because we only host one wedding each day, you’ll be able to prepare in a more relaxed atmosphere. Some couples arrive first thing the morning for a larger wedding, while couples with smaller weddings or elopements arrive a few hours prior to their ceremony.
Ceremonies for guest counts up to 50 are possible year round, and for between 75 and 100 April through Thanksgiving.
The actual ceremony décor may vary slightly from the photographs on our website, because we replace it as it ages.

Ceremony Locations

Reception Area

Full-service wedding venue

Honeysuckle Hills is the perfect gathering place for family and friends. The best part is we’ll handle all the details for you, because we have solid relationships with the best wedding vendors in the Southeast.

The Willow Tree

Best for couples only elopements, or guest counts of 30 or less

Our weeping willow has been the number one ceremony choice for four years running. Planted in 2008, its towering branches provide a cozy, shaded area for couples to say, “I Do” beneath it. It is typically decorated with lantern lights on its limbs, and ferns and potted plants at the entrance…

The White Pergola

Best for higher guest counts, with permanent bench-style seating for 75-100 guests

Most popular for larger weddings, this ceremony site has a more formal, elegant appeal. It only takes one and a half minutes to walk from the barn and across a lovely arched bridge as your guests are awed with your approach. You’ll also pass by our little waterfall, which soothes and calms…

The Granite Stone Wedding Arch

Best for higher guest counts, with permanent bench-style seating for 50-75 guests

Most popular in the early spring and fall wedding months, the stone arch has a classic wedding feel. It was built by hand in 2016, and our creek flows right behind it. It’s only a one and half minute walk from the barn in the opposite direction of the white pergola, and tucked away behind seasonally flowering…

The Covered Pavilion

Suitable for smaller or larger guest counts, up to 75

If it rains, this is your “next-to-the best-thing” outdoor wedding ceremony. However, many couples choose it because it is always shaded. If you have guests with mobility issues, it’s also the closest ceremony location to the barn. Canvas tent sides can be lowered to cover the entire guest seating area if…

The Traditional Wedding Chapel

Best for up to 50 wedding guests

Another option if it rains, or a year-round choice is our traditional wedding chapel. Its rich wood and cabin styled décor goes well with your Smoky Mountain wedding experience. Guests particularly enjoy the access to our balcony and the views of the rolling hills and horse field just outside its upstairs doors.

Tour the Grounds

We hope you’ll enjoy these photographs of our Honeysuckle Hills wedding venue in the mountain valleys of Pigeon Forge…
But, the best way to experience the beauty of our destination wedding venue is to visit in person. No matter how many pictures or videos we show you, nothing beats the real thing. The sound of the flowing stream, tweeting birds, neighing horses, and the smell of the barn wood and flowering honeysuckle just can’t be conveyed on a website.
Personal venue tours are scheduled Wednesday through Saturday, prior to our wedding guests’ private venue time.
We encourage you to schedule your venue tour as far in advance as possible. Please schedule your appointment. It is heartbreaking to be turned away when dropping in and guests are present. We are not open to the general public.
