Covered Patio

We see most of our couples utilize the covered patio space for cocktail hour following their ceremony. It’s a great spot to set up cocktail tables, or even beautiful lounge furniture to give your guest a relaxing place to hang between your ceremony and reception. The other great thing about this covered space is that it gives our couples an additional backup rain plan for smaller groups! 


We have created our semi-private knoll area to make for the most breathtaking photo spot. Where the natural wooded trees and mossy rocks meet the spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains.
