Location, Location, Location

Take a cue from Blackberry Farm of Walland, Tenn. Located in the beautiful Smoky Mountain foothills, this luxury hotel and resort is known for being a top location for sophisticated weddings, nestled in gorgeous countryside.

Mix and Match

A harmonious mix of cream flowers adds interest to each row of seats, while also serving as a nod to the equally stunning bridal gown to come.

Bring the Outside In

A charming outdoor wedding can’t be beat. Bring nature into the dining experience with botanical chandeliers and coordinating centerpieces.

Silver and Gold

For a truly elegant table setting, keep the tablecloth and centerpiece simple and understated, making sophisticated dinnerware the star of the show.

Soft Seating

Keep guests comfortable and enveloped in velvet with plush dining chairs, fit for a royal court.

Local Roots

Skip traditional floral centerpieces, and opt for a fresh mix of native foliage, a sophisticated change your guests are sure to notice.

Facilitate Flow

In order to encourage communion and keep conversation going, pay attention to the height and width of centerpieces, keeping all guests in view from any seat at the table.

Cocktail Queen

Spoil your friends and family with a decadent bar. For a fun detail your guests will love, create a signature cocktail to honor the happy couple.

Icing on the Cake

A wedding cake with simple details and natural accents exudes a graceful rusticity, going along with the understated elegance of a formal wedding.

Calm, Cool and Collected

Don’t forget to relax and reflect on your big day. Gather your bridal party for some much needed R&R, and take a moment to enjoy the magical day you’ve created.

Here Comes the Bride

And now that the planning is complete and your to-do list is all checked off, enjoy your big day!
