Destination Wedding in The Smokies

Magnolia + Ember has been a preferred photographer since 2018 for The Magnolia, and now for their newest venue The Trillium. I have had the pleasure of working at the venues more times than I’ve counted. With my depth of experience and the logistics of day-of timelines specific to your venue, I have designed Smoky Mountain wedding photography packages to ensure I can provide coverage for all the magical moments of your wedding day from getting ready to the final moments of the celebration.

kind words from the couple:

“I’ll start by saying Julie’s photos are clearly gorgeous. Her style gives a whimsical kind of vibe, with a highlight on nature which is exactly what my husband and I wanted. Julie herself is prompt in responding, SWEET as can be, and catches beautiful moments effortlessly. She loves what she does and it’s evident in her work. We love our wedding photos and are grateful she was available on our day!” – Kelly + John

private vow reading + first look

Before the guests began to arrive at the venue, the bride and groom took some time to themselves on The Knoll to read personally written vows and share their first look prior to walking down the aisle. Carving out intimate moments like this during the wedding day allows you to step into your feelings and focus on the connection between you and your partner.

Wedding Reception with Mountain Views

The Magnolia can accommodate up to 100 guests seated within the indoor space of the Grand Hall. With sliding doors opening on all four walls, you can truly feel immersed in nature as you enjoy the dinner celebration with your family & friends. There is an additional covered patio area that is ideal for cocktail hour prior to the reception.
