"Getting married at The Magnolia was the best decision we could have made. My husband and I are a very adventurous couple and this venue has the absolute perfect location with mountainous views and plenty of spots for photo ops while still feeling very intimate and private. The Magnolia team was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the process of planning a destination wedding and always had super quick response times. Everyone wondering why the heck a couple from PA would choose to get married in a sight unseen location in TN definitely didn’t ask any further questions when they saw the venue! We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this venue in our search. If we could do it all over again we literally wouldn’t change a thing. It was the absolute best day ever!” - Jessica & Niko, Pennysylvania

"Our dream mountain wedding venue and wedding day! The Trillium is truly magical and the views are absolutely stunning. The staff at the Trillium were such a big help throughout our special day. We booked this venue for our NYE wedding, site unseen. The team's professionalism throughout the booking process gave us complete confidence that this venue would be incredible, and they did not disappoint. This is the best venue in the Smokies and we would recommend it 100 times over." - Molly & Andrew, Tennessee
