Best Knoxville Wedding Venues! We ventured out to find the top three best and most eclectic wedding venues in Knoxville, TN. As wedding planners, we are always on the lookout for new venues to work in! Not only do we want to find the most beautiful venues but we are also looking for venues that are spacious, have a nice flow, and convenience for guests/vendors. We are so excited to share 3 of our favorite Knoxville wedding venues! 

Maple Grove Estate

Our first stop on this “Knoxville’s Best Wedding Venue” tour is to Maple Grove Estate. Located just south-west of downtown, Maple Grove Estate was built in 1799 and is a mixture of Georgian and Federal style architecture. Over the years, it has been home to many wonderful families and carries with it rich history. In 2018, it was purchased by Karen and Roland Shankles who remodeled the home and brought it into the beauty of what it is today. 

Nestled on a little over 15 acres, the Estate, along with the grounds, provide a beautiful setting for a romantically elegant and timeless mansion wedding. Inside the home, the bridal suit is a dream come true boasting elegance. From a covered porch where you can sit and sip coffee before the busy day begins, to the lounge area surrounding a gorgeous fireplace, to the large bathroom with plenty of mirrors for everyone to have space, this area is glorious and a perfect place for the bride to make lasting memories with her girls! 

And we cannot forget about the guys… Upstairs, they find themselves in the most “Great Gatsby-esk” suite with dark woods, rich leather accents and a large tv to watch the football game before pictures begin! The grounds have a lot of magical and picturesque areas.

If you are looking for a place to make your “home wedding” dreams come to life without having it at your own home, the Maple Grove Estate is for you. Just imagine, a quaint garden ceremony and then dancing the night away under the stars… it gives us all of the ‘Father of the Bride’ vibes!

Mill and Mine

The next stop on the “Knoxville’s Best Wedding Venue” tour will take us about 20 minutes away from Maple Grove Estate to Mill and Mine. We are so excited to work in this space in 2022! Mill and Mine is a state-of-the-art concert and event in historic downtown Knoxville. The venue features a huge indoor stage, amazing sound and lighting systems, an 8,000 square-foot courtyard and private suites! 

Mill and Mine provides such an open space, you can really transform the room any way that you would like. Some brides have chosen to keep it classy with white and greenery accents and then some brides have decided to add some color to spice things up! That is the fun part – you can choose! 

If having a band at your wedding is a big priority for you then Mill and Mine may just be the venue for you! Bands absolutely love playing at the space and it provides the most perfect party scene! 

The Trillium Venue

The last stop on the “Knoxville’s Best Wedding Venue” tour is a newer venue – The Trillium! This venue is a family owned business located in Pigeon Forge. They know just how important your wedding day is and their goal is to serve their clients just like they are part of their family. We are all obsessed with this venue and know you will be too! 

The Trillium Venue is a luxurious venue located in the heart of the Smoky Mountains with breathtaking mountain views! With views for miles, the venue wanted to give their couples a luxury mountain experience for their wedding day. 

Grooms, the venue doesn’t forget about giving you your own space! can you imagine having a drink with your groomsmen with these views?! 

While the guys are having a drink by the breathtaking view, the girls will be sipping mimosas and getting ready in the stunning bridal suite!
