The Ultimate Smoky Mountain Wedding. Glamping Under the Canvas

We love when a group of talented wedding vendors gets together to create a stylized wedding (and invites us to provide the dress and accessories). Through these artistic adventures, we discover awesome new venues, get tons of wedding inspo, see the latest floral trends, wedding decor & tablescapes plus we get to share tons of gorgeous photos from the shoot featuring our gowns. This superlative shoot features a dreamy mountain-inspired wedding beautifully styled by  Lindsay Mae Designs and stunningly captured by the talented Emerald + Ivy Wedding Photography.

This styled shoot was held at the super cool Under Canvas® Smoky Mountains, the perfect place to have a wedding in the Smokies. The 182-acre venue is lush with the extravagant natural beauty of America’s most visited national park. Meadows, trees, streams, blue skies, and fresh air. Imagine saying “I Do” with stunning mountain vistas as your backdrop, or exchange your vows in one of their large event tents. Your wedding will be an unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones at this unique venue!  It’s nice to know that the friendly team at Under Canvas® can help you with all aspects of your wedding, too. They have incredible large CanopyMarqui™ tents which are great for lounging, dining, and dancing and have the flexibility to expand to accommodate up to 300 guests.

Another bonus, they’ve elevated camping into  “glamping.” Some call it glamorous camping, we call it the only way to camp! Fine linens, en suite bathrooms, real beds….yes, please! In our opinion, there is no better way to enjoy the beauty of nature than by staying in a very hip safari-inspired canvas tent surrounded by modern luxury.

Beautiful bride Annabel looks amazing in her light and airy wedding dress which is available exclusively in Knoxville at The Gilded Gown. Designed by Lillian West the dress has flirty bell sleeves which frame the bodice of the A-line floor-length gown.

Dazzling criss-cross straps adorn the illusion back. And we cannot get over those fabulous SLEEVES!

This dress features a point d’esprit layer, chiffon bias band at natural waist, and satin lining.

The perfect gown for a mountain wedding!

Annabel’s dazzling wedding day hair and makeup look was achieved by Tara Hailey

The handsome groom, Tim, looks carefree and comfy in his denim and boots!

Echelon Florist created all the amazing florals for the shoot. We don’t know what we love most! That bouquet! The floral crown! The hanging hoops! They are all so so pretty!

The hip table arrangements incorporate metal hoops, Black-Eyed Susans, Calla Lillies, pops of bright purple and assorted greenery.

We love that all the arrangements are not matchy-matchy but look amazing together.

The metal hoops tied with twine are a great way to decorate a space with major impact. The flowers make them so special.

We hope you find inspiration in this beautiful wedding day shoot.
