An amazing residence and view atop this Wears Valley Mountain Top….was the perfect backdrop for this memorable ceremony and wedding reception. Jasmine and Nick entertained just over 100 guest at the main entrance of this residence under tent. This was not just any tent… it was a tent with all the “bells and whistles”  liner, drapes, chandeliers, and twinkle lights.

Jeff and Kendra

Maryville , TN

Ceremony SiteRiver John’s Island is a unique venue in the Wildwood area of Maryville . This small private island offers excellent opportunity for a rustic wedding and reception site.

Jeff and Kendra are both school teachers and decided to plan and implement the entire wedding in just alittle over three weeks (before school started back). They enlisted the help of Debe Campbell , wedding coordinator extraordinaire  (865) 567-8018 . Debe was able to bring all vendors together quickly and pull off some amazing details that really made this whole day very special.

Debe's Centerpiece Magic

KIDDO'S Fun WagonOutdoor bug spray basketKid’s fun wagon, bug repellent basket, and unique flower accents are just a few details that Ms. Debe created.

Ms. Sondra Kay was onsite everywhere snapping excellent natural wedding day photo’s; the couple portrait was great!

Jeff and KendraThe music was great ! From ceremony , MC, to reception music –Mr. Craig Hurst did an excellent job, congrats !

The menu that Jeff and Kendra selected was awesome. First , we started with a butler passed tray of domestic gourmet cheeses and mini roasted pecan cheeseballs. Then we preset each place setting with our Spinach Pecan Salad with the Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. As each guest finished their salad we encouraged them to go through the great dinner buffet.
