Winter Weddings at Sampson’s Hollow near Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains

Posted in Blog, Farm Weddings

All seasons at the farm are magical.  Nature provides a backdrop at Sampson’s Hollow that is a stunning testament to God’s creation, and all seasons hold their magic.  Winter Weddings are special.  Our location in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, directely between Blackberry Farm and Cades Cove, can bring mild temperatures in the winter but also the beauty of a light snow. Romance and celebration come alive as we light the barn and warm the hearts with your beautiful sentiments and expressions.  Trends in wedding colors in winter are whites and silvers, with natural evergreens and pine cones.  Holiday accent colors can be added but not distract from the natural beauty that surrounds you. Cozy honeymoons might be another consideration as you plan your winter wedding in the Smoky Mountains.  Our wedding planners can help you create the perfect mood and setting, whether it is just the two of you or your family and friends...
