The Wildflower Event Center is one of the newest wedding venues in the Smoky Mountains. Conveniently located within minutes of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this Pigeon Forge area venue has everything a bride could need for the perfect wedding in the Smoky Mountains. Brides searching for wedding venues in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge will be interested to learn more about this new venue. 

The Wildflower is a lovely venue for wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and other wedding-related events. The rustic yet refined venue offers a range of all-inclusive wedding packages. These packages include full-scale Smoky Mountain weddings to small elopements. 

We recently spoke with the team at Wildflower Event Center to learn more about the venue and the services they offer to couples getting married in the Smoky Mountains. 

The Wildflower Event Center Venue Amenities

Inside this Gatlinburg wedding venue.

There are both indoor and outdoor spaces at The Wildflower Event Center. The venue offers a beautiful outdoor site for mountain-view wedding ceremonies and receptions. They also boast a spacious 5,000 square foot modern-farmhouse-style indoor space. The wedding venue can accommodate weddings of 2 to 1,500 guests! 

A backup weather plan is built into the site because they have such well-appointed indoor spaces. This is a huge asset as the Smoky Mountain weather can be unpredictable and scattered. 

“We have a flexible layout which makes us so unique! We have an outdoor pavilion, a fireplace, and three levels inside the venue. This gives our couples a plethora of options to choose from when deciding where they would like to hold their ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, etc.,” explained Lush White, venue manager for The Wildflower Event Center.

Wedding Packages 

The Wildflower Event Center offers a thoughtful collection of wedding packages to accommodate nearly any budget. Their goal is to make brides’ dream weddings affordable and attainable. Every wedding package is customizable and has been expertly designed to maximize the budget. 

“Our goal is to be as affordable as possible, while also providing the best services possible to make all the couple’s wedding dreams come true,” Lush said as she spoke about their wedding packages.  

All packages include a venue representative to help with the couple’s needs. They also include access to in-house décor including vases, candles, signage, silk flowers, and other pieces. Using these items for centerpieces can alleviate money for other areas of the wedding budget. 

Most weddings in the Smoky Mountains are destination weddings. The Wildflower Event Center has thoughtfully designed its packages with those brides in mind. The packages seek to make the most of a bride’s budget and make the process as easy and convenient as possible. Even the top-tier packages are affordable compared to other area venues.

Trusted Wedding Partners

Brides holding their wedding reception at The Wildflower Event Center will have access to a preferred vendor list. The list includes caterers and other local wedding professionals. The venue allows service from any vendor of your choice, although the recommendations on the list are based off past experiences with successful weddings.


Catering is one of the most expensive aspects of a wedding budget, however, the venue manager can help brides make the best choice so that it fits into their budget. The caterers listed on the preferred vendor list are trusted and have proven to provide exceptional food and service while meeting the needs of wedding budgets.

One of the best amenities at The Wildflower is their catering prep kitchen and buffet room. A catering team preparing for or cleaning up after a meal will not interrupt any special moments in the wedding reception. This is because the prep kitchen and buffet room are separate from the main event spaces. The kitchen and buffet room are adjoining, which makes it easier for your catering team to provide the meal; and cleaning up is easy for them as well. This is one example of how the layout and design of The Wildflower Event Center were created with the bride and groom in mind. Every detail lends to an exceptional experience that exceeds expectations.

The preferred vendor list does not mention any photographers. Wedding photography is a vast segment of the wedding industry. The venue prefers for a bride to select a photographer that best suits her style. Of course, inquiring brides can ask for recommendations when speaking with The Wildflower Event Center manager, or they can research trusted Smoky Mountain wedding photographers here.
