WEDDING Inspiration

"It is hard to find words for this little piece of magic parked so perfectly at the top of the mountain. I looked at one venue, and knew it was where I would get married. From the time we arrived and settled into the all white amazing bridal suite, to the photos on the knoll, to the ceremony overlooking the mountainside, to the reception and dancing the night away under the perfect little lights... Magnolia, we love you! If we could do it all again, we would 100 times over! Thank you for being the best!"

- Lauren & Nick, Florida

“How can you not choose this venue? Being an out-of-state bride, the venue made it so easy. None of our guests were from Tennessee either and the venue provided so many assets in our planning to put everyone at ease. The views, the facilities & the staff are all top notch! If you're looking for an intimate wedding that will be a show stopper for your guests - The Magnolia is your venue!”

- Jillian & Aaron, Florida

“My husband and I got married at the Magnolia in September and my guests described it at "flawless" and "jaw dropping" which I completely agree with! We booked this venue sight unseen but we just knew it was the one. We wanted an exclusive and intimate venue (where no one other than wedding guests would be) with amazing views, and Magnolia delivered just that. We can't thank this team enough for helping us celebrate the best day of our lives!”

- Sarah & Harry, Tennessee

“I cannot say enough good things about this venue! Their team was incredibly helpful and accommodating. The venue is jaw dropping. The bridal suite was beautiful, the views were unreal, the reception space inside was lovely. The whole experience was amazing, and I am so lucky to have been able to book The Magnolia venue, we had the best time and everyone kept commenting on how beautiful it was! I recommend this place a million times over.”

- Cortney & Aaron, Ohio
