Holly Berry Dreams

A myth regarding the holly berry is that if you hang Holly Berry over your bed while sleeping, your dreams will come true.

For a bride and groom who want a romantic ceremony with the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains with a few guests and more time, we offer a weekday or evening package (Monday through Thursday, and Friday morning) which includes the following:

  • Two hours on the property, with a changing area for the bride. In order to maximize time, the bride and groom should arrive dressed and ready for their ceremony unless choosing to use part of the included property time for changing. Additional time will need to be charged if needed if adding personal decorations or more time with your photographer.
  • A ceremony held in Sarah’s Glen, on our footbridge by the meadow, at the Meadow Pergola, or in on the covered front porch of our red barn (in the event of bad weather), with fresh greenery and burlap drapes, where appropriate.
  • Total of ten guests, including bridal party, if any.
  • Minister to perform a traditional Christian ceremony
  • Traditional wedding music for the ceremony played on a Bluetooth speaker
  • A small, fresh flower bridal bouquet and groom’s bout in brides’ choice of colors. Flowers will include roses, baby’s breath or wax flowers, fillers, and greenery. Some substitutions are available for an upcharge.
  • Mason jars with baby’s breath for guest tables.
  • One-tier cake with sparkling cider, for up to ten guests
