6 Things To Look for in a Luxury Wedding Venue

Your wedding day is a memory you will keep forever.  It deserves to be unique and perfect. Couples looking for isolation and breathtaking views for their luxury wedding can build the perfect experience in the Smoky Mountains, with the right venue.

It’s no surprise that couples get married with the mountainside and beautiful forests in the background of every shot, but not all venues are the same. Rustic weddings are one thing, but if you’re planning a luxury event, then your venue needs to meet a few standards.

Let’s dive into what really defines a luxury wedding venue in the Smoky Mountains. Showcasing an ideal example of remote wedding planning, The Trillium Venue is what to look for in a luxury wedding venue. Nestled in the perfect spot for great views and isolation in the Smoky Mountains, our wedding venue is designed with consideration for everything a modern couple and guests might need.

The ritual of getting ready on the big day is an important part of the ceremony, though only the wedding party sees it. The bride and groom’s separate suites make it possible for each party to get ready together in privacy, while still drinking in the special day in a beautiful luxury venue. Getting ready in the hotel means transporting to the venue already dressed.

Bridal and groom suites ensure that everyone can arrive and prepared. The bride can put on her dress and the bridesmaids can help arrange it to perfection without risk of the groom catching sight.

The groom and his groomsmen can get polished long before the first bridesmaid sees, so that everything is perfect as the parties come together. More importantly for some, there’s no need to take a cab or drive after getting ready, so your best clothes and surprise reveals are preserved.


Caterers are pros at making hot food and cold drinks appear no matter where you decide to get married, but a kitchen truly empowers your caterers to shine. An on-site prep kitchen is an ideal feature in any wedding venue.

The Trillium is built with caterers in mind, featuring a professionally equipped kitchen with a separate service entrance to conveniently park and unload the vans. We have a several carefully curated catering companies that we work with on a regular basis, who will be familiar with the space and set up to make sure your meal service is perfect.


The photographs of your wedding day will last a lifetime. They will be what helps you bring back every beautiful detail of your happiest day of romance fulfilled. Your decorations can be perfect, but nothing makes your wedding an unforgettable masterpiece like breathtaking views.

Your luxury wedding venue should be somewhere you find beautiful so that every photograph has a background that reflects the joy in the room.

The Trillium, like many custom-built wedding venues, is designed with 360 wedding photography in mind. Every ballroom, window, doorway, and deck has stunning mountain vistas stretching for miles in every direction, or rolling tree-covered slopes filling your backgrounds with greenery.

Look for elegant architecture that will both flatter your decorations and frame every photograph.


The moment you say your “I Dos” may become the most beautiful memory of your lifetime. The venue, flowers, dress, cake, and guests all perfect and immortalized in that moment.

Of course you want that venue to be a stunning ceremony and reception location. Even without photographs, the joy of this day (and night) will stay with you forever.

So look for a luxury wedding venue that feels like a dream from every angle. The architecture, colors, and views should all come together to create the experience you plan to remember in dreams for the rest of your life. Our venue is designed with a looping deck, indoor and outdoor spaces, and the ceiling of every space built with photography and a floor-to-ceiling experience in mind.


Every wedding is unique because no two couples (or families) are the same. This means that a great wedding venue must have a customizable design that is both inherently beautiful and adaptable to the colors and style of any couple’s needs. Whether your wedding is black tie and champagne or linen and dried flowers, a luxury wedding venue will look great when your decorations are in place. The Trillium is subtly designed to allow for any wedding theme, such as rustic, glam, boho, or classic.


Finally, the perfect luxury wedding venue has all the services you need nearby. Many venues built just for weddings, like the Trillium and our sister-site The Magnolia Venue, have several carefully curated wedding planners that we recommend to all of our wedding couples, to take care of all of your wedding day needs. These wedding planners have connections throughout the area to make your wedding come together perfectly. Our professional wedding venue has local vendor-partners who are experts in catering, decorating, and photography among other vendors.
