DETAILS ABOUT THE TRILLIUM
It all begins with...
We are proud to present The Trillium Wedding Venue for the first time. The Trillium is currently under construction at this time, with an anticipated grand opening in the fall of 2021. We are now accepting wedding bookings for the fall of 2021. Check out our venue renderings below to see the Trillium in its full glory.
Please note that the images facing the mountains from the patio and front (parking lot) side of the property are actual views of the backdrop. You can see a glimpse of downtown Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, off in the distance to the left.
The rear side of the Trillium faces the Smoky Mountains. The back of the venue has a ground-level patio and second story ceremony space. The ground-level patio features a covered patio and open seating space with a fireplace. Adjacent to the second story ceremony space is a large covered pavilion area that can be used for cocktail hour or a second outdoor ceremony location.

INSIDE THE TRILLIUM
The Grand Reception Hall
The interior of our Grand Reception Hall boasts a vaulted raised ceiling with wood beam features and elegant chandeliers. The entire space is surrounded by an abundance of windows and glass garage door style openings that roll up to invite the outdoor space inside. The expansive windows and transoms allow guests to enjoy an unfettered view of The Great Smoky Mountains.
Smoky Mountain Views
Perched atop Bluff Mountain sits The Trillium Venue. With views for miles, we wanted to give our couples a luxury mountain experience with unbeatable views. The Trillium Venue was explicitly designed for couples seeking a custom-made Smoky Mountain wedding.

What is the average budget of a couple getting married at The Trillium Venue?
On average a total wedding cost at The Trillium ranges from $30,000-$35,000.We have had beautiful weddings where couples with smaller guest counts do spend below average and we have also had beautiful weddings where couples spend significantly more than the average.
What time will I have access to the venue on my wedding day?
Our venue access time starts at 10AM
Will we be able to access the venue the night before for a rehearsal?
We do often host back to back wedding days, so our venue will likely be reserved for another wedding the day before your event. For this reason, you should plan for an offsite rehearsal. We’ve found that it’s more important to gather everyone to rehearse and talk through the day-of schedule and details, than it is to actually rehearse in the space.
Are candles allowed?
Yes, but the flame and candle need to be contained in a glass container/candle holder.
What does clean up entail?
At the end of your event, we simply ask that you remove personal belongings that you have brought in and any rental items. The venue is professionally cleaned after every event.
