East Tennessee is a popular location for destination weddings thanks to the gorgeous Smoky Mountains. The Magnolia offers remarkable views throughout the whole experience. With an on-site suite and nearby rental cabins, everyone is immersed in nature from the moment they wake up and begin the day up until the last moments of the celebration when loved ones are dancing under a sky full of stars.
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 Reading of Wedding Vows
I cannot imagine sharing something as sacred as vows, that level of intimacy, with anyone other than my partner. When the couple told me they were exchanging vows alone, prior to the wedding ceremony with family & friends, my heart filled with so much joy. We chose The Knoll for this special moment because it is up & away from the venue and is great space for the first look right after reading vows.

The Magnolia Venue
Magnolia + Ember has been a preferred photographer since 2018 for The Magnolia, and now for the 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 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.
Wedding Reception With Mountain Views
The Grand Hall
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.
