The Magnolia

Parkside Resort is proud to present The Magnolia – a brand new, one of a kind wedding venue nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains!

The Magnolia boasts outstanding, unobstructed views of Mount LeConte for you and your guests to enjoy during your big day. When you arrive at the top of the mountain, your breath will be taken away when you first catch a glimpse of this venue and the backdrop. We promise there is nothing quite like this in the Smoky Mountains, making the Magnolia perfect for your special day.

From the gorgeous barn inspired great hall to the grandiose deck and the attached bridal suite, the options at the Magnolia are truly endless rain or shine! We want your wedding day to be as stress free as possible, and with adequate indoor and outdoor choices at this venue for up to 90 guests, you can mark the weather off your check list.

The great hall at the Magnolia is perfect for your ceremony, reception, or both! This space features huge sliding barn doors on the front and back, glass garage doors on both sides, and plenty of windows to enjoy the view! The barn and garage doors can be opened or closed at your choosing and to adjust accordingly with weather. With rustic wall lighting, ceiling fans, and a beautiful chandelier as the focal point, the Magnolia is incredible day or night. This space was designed to accommodate tables for the bride and groom plus 82 guests, DJ space and a media hookup, a dance area, a cake table, a buffet and drink station, and a sign in table. The hall can also be set for a ceremony and then flipped for your reception, with a cocktail hour on the deck to allow for the change. Just imagine saying “I do” on the deck of the Magnolia with Mount LeConte right behind you and then dancing the night away under the chandelier…It will be an experience you and your loved ones never forget!

The Magnolia features a beautiful open deck attached to the great hall with Edison style string lights and space for an arch if desired overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains and Mount LeConte. This space is beautiful for an unforgettable outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, or even dancing the night away during your reception! Because the Magnolia is located on a peak, there is typically a nice breeze throughout the day and evening so this outdoor space is enjoyable year-round. When you open the garage doors on the great hall, you and your guests will be able to enjoy both spaces with ease.

The bridal suite at the Magnolia has been perfectly appointed for the bride’s needs the day of her wedding. With whitewash walls and elegant furnishings, you and your bridesmaids will be totally relaxed getting ready at the Magnolia and your photographer will find plenty of stunning photo opportunities both indoors and out. The bridal suite features hair and makeup stations with mirrors and seating, as well as attached restrooms. You and your bridal party will feel at ease knowing you are right next door to the venue and just minutes away from your cabins at Parkside Resort.
