We're told that Fall in the Great Smoky Mountains is something everyone must see at least once in their lifetime. Last year we were lucky enough to get hired as the Wedding Planning team for a KILLER festival-style wedding at Under Canvas Smoky Mountains and got to experience the Smokies in all of their Fall glory! Let's jump into Annabelle & Paul's gorgeous fall wedding in the Great Smoky Mountains!
The Wedding Welcome Party
Something we love doing is encouraging our couples to host a welcome party the day instead of a formal rehearsal dinner. This allows all guests to join in on the fun, have a cocktail and feast on something a little more casual but just as delicious such as tacos. It's a great way to have your guests meet each other before the big day and start the party early!
The Wedding Morning
After a solid night of welcome festivities, everyone enjoyed a cozy sleep in their glamping tents onsite. Each tent has a comfy bed, lounge chairs and even their own wood burning stove. Some of the larger tents even have their own bathrooms which comes in handy as a "getting ready" tent for the bride or groom. Might we also recommend that you schedule a wedding morning yoga session to kick off the day followed by breakfast burritos and LOTS of coffee before getting ready for your wedding day.
The Wedding Ceremony + Details
I've dreamt of these details ever since we got this wedding gallery back! The bouquet alone is the perfect representation of fall. The invitations are simple but boho and modern all at once. The overall warm tones of this weddings just makes my soul happy! The ceremony was almost like a piece of art. The girls over at Lang Floral Designs knocked this boho pampass grass ceremony design out of the park!
A Smoky Mountain Party
After the gorgeous ceremony surrounded by trees, guests were invited inside the main teepee for cocktails, appetizers and music! A full southern BBQ meal was for dinner with unlimited wine on the tables. The reception decor was just as gorgeous as the ceremony. We designed it to feel intimate but also family-style. We decorated long wooden tables with bud vases filled with pampass grass and flowers. Each place setting had simple white plates and a mustard yellow napkin for that pop of color.
