Very personalized, great setting, awesome overall experience.
Very pretty setting, super friendly folks, the pastor took our story and incorporated it into the ceremony. Photographer was very good and sweet too. Loved it.Sent on 10/08/2019

The best wedding venue ever!!
Above the Mist wedding venue went way above what I expected! Not living in Tennessee and doing everything by email does make one a little nervous especially since its your big day and you don't get to see things right away. I was blown away by the venue and by all the designs they did. The site was amazing, the flowers were beautiful, the coordination went smoothly and everyone was so nice. I chose them because I was not wanting the stress of any planning and by reviews. From day one (before choosing them), they were so helpful through email with any questions I had. They also responded quickly. After choosing them we stayed in contact through email. They had several questions on my likes and all I had to do was email pictures to give them an idea! They made the magic happen from those pictures! I was not a picky bride and I actually left a lot of details up to them and I and everyone at our wedding was amazed! The pictures I have seen through a sneak peek are definitely a tease and so beautiful. I would recommend Above the Mist to anyone!Sent on 10/02/2019

Perfect Destination Wedding Service
Above the Mist went above and beyond my hopes and made my special day all I could have dreamed! Booking with an out of state service came with a lot of concerns but all my worries were instantly gone the more I talked and worked with the staff. Choosing the cake options and music options was made simple. They had amazing recommendations for restaurants following our ceremony, and even recommended shuttle services. Most all information I needed along with directions and address' were provided upfront and any questions I had were quickly addressed via e-mails back and forth. Not seeing the Mountain View prior to the ceremony also had me a bit nervous but it was gorgeous and I will forever be thankful we chose Above the Mist. The minister and photographer were both friendly and also dedicated to helping our day become as magical as we hoped it would be. Not to mention, the pricing is beyond reasonable especially when they make it all so easy. I will 100% recommend Above the Mist to anyone I know wanting to head to the mountains for their wedding day. There is not enough I could say to give credit to everyone involved!Sent on 09/30/2019

Exactly what we had wanted
The groom and I wanted someone simple and sweet just for the two of us. And they did exactly that. They were also so nice and caringSent on 10/10/2019

They made it so easy!
If you are looking for a stress-free way to plan a destination wedding, I would definitely recommend Above the Mist. From the beginning I was impressed with the customer service of the company. The phone was always answered within a timely manner and the person that answered was always super nice and helpful. Most of the communication is done through email, and I have honestly have never had a company answer my emails so promptly. They always had the answers I needed or would help me find the answers. I am not from Tennessee so I was hesitant to book with a company for a destination I had never seen but everything turned out better than I could have ever imagined! The venue we chose was the “Mountain View” and it was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop to marry the man of my dreams! The “all-inclusive” style was something I loved. There are many different packages to pick from and many add-ons available. A few things included in our wedding were the minister, photographer, wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding, ceremony music, cake, and fresh flowers for the cake. We also opted to have a wedding reception at a cabin through Above the Mist and had a catered meal delivered by them also. We were given a large list of meal options to choose from and the food turned out great! The cake turned out amazing also and was sooo yummy! The minister for our ceremony was great and even blindfolded my fiancé and prayed with us before the ceremony at our request. The wedding coordinator and photographer met me at my car door and did everything for me before the wedding. Any decorations I wanted put up were taken care of and all the guests and the groomsmen were helped to their spots by the coordinator while the photographer helped me get ready. The photographer was very professional and knowledgeable. The sneak peek pictures look amazing and I can’t wait to see the whole album!! The cabin we had our reception at was amazing, it was beautiful and very clean. Overall, I was super impressed with the company and I am so thankful for all they did to make our day so perfect (especially since we got married on Friday the 13th and it was a full moon :)).Sent on 10/04/2019

Wow! My husband and I are incredibly thankful for this wedding venue. They were amazing!Sent on 06/16/2019
First off, be prepared to do everything through email. At first I was bit surprised that they preferred to be contacted by email, but let me tell you it’s a BLESSING to have everything in writing when you may forgot. They were great with responding to me in a few hours, or on the next business day after the weekend.
I was nervous on how things would turn out as we never went to view the location and all the planning was done online. Let me tell you, it was more beautiful than I imagined.
The ceremony was wonderful. We LOVED our wedding coordinator and minister. They accommodated us and answered all my questions. Not to mention the flowers were wonderful!!
The best part about everything is it’s all inclusive. We got the ceremony, flowers, cake, minister, and reception food all done through them. It was amazing! Our cabins in all were very beautiful.
Don’t even get me started on the cake and food. YUM!!
We only had two “complaints”. The baker who made our cake gave us navy blue, yellow, and purple flowers on our cake when we did not request purple or have purple in our wedding. It was still beautiful nonetheless! The second one, we do not recommend staying in the honeymoon cabin “Lite my fire”. It came free with our ceremony, however we opted to stay with the rest of our family in their cabin after seeing the condition of the place.
Other than those small details, everything went perfect and smooth. We had the best wedding EVER!

I used this company last year when I got I married and I would recommend this to anyone looking. They made the wedding planning process a breeze. The only downfall I would mention was the proce the photographer charged that comes with the package.Sent on 05/23/2018

We just got married on March 25th and our wedding was absolutely perfect. The mountain view was breathtaking. Our plans had changed as the wedding planning went on and the staff was more than willing to accommodate us when we decided to downsize our wedding. Planning a wedding from 500 miles away is never easy and the staff helped make that task much easier! Thank you to everyone at Above the Mist for making our special day perfect!Sent on 04/03/2017

The ladies at Above the Mist truly went above and beyond to make sure I was 100% happy with their services and got exactly what I wanted. They happily tailored a package with just what we wanted and no unnecessary services and stayed well in our budget. We decided to simply do a dinner after our ceremony and they were happy to suggest a place (Park Grill which was AMAZING). Rev. Ownby was very down to earth and super friendly. Although we had just met, he performed our service like he'd known us for years. Neither my husband or myself are particularly religious so we asked that our ceremony be a little light on that aspect and he did a wonerful job!Sent on 10/29/2016

We used Above the Mist for my son's wedding on 9/24/2016. It was so beautiful that one of our guest said she almost cried just looking at the mountain site before the ceremony even began. They custom made a wedding package just for us. The flowers, cake, catering, photographs, music and much more were all designed with our family in mind. They were so prompt and responsive to our every need. They went far beyond our expectations to make this wedding a dream come true for my son and his new bride. I can't thank them enough.Sent on 09/26/2016

My wedding was yesterday and I have to say everything was absolutely PERFECT! The girls with Above the Mist, especially Carly, were so helpful throughout the whole process. Communication was excellent. Also, the flowers were beautiful, the cake was delicious and the photographer was wonderful! My husband and I couldn't have asked for anything better. 100% satisfied!!! Thanks for making us feel so special on our big day! I would definitely recommend Above the Mist to anyone looking to get married in the area.Sent on 09/03/2016

In the hustle and bustle of trying to plan a wedding out of state and make it perfect is beyond stressful. When my fiance and I started talking about this, immediately I began to look into it. Somehow I found Above the mist and it was sincerely the best decision I made. From the very first phone call to the wedding day all of the staff were always more than happy to help in any way they could, by carrying out my vision to making it all come together. I can't say enough about the staff and how kind and courteous they all are. If you have any reservations about trying to plan a wedding and being states away, don't! And the mountain site is picture perfect for a small intimate wedding!Sent on 08/03/2016
Thank you sincerely, Pete & Michelle

I absolutely loved the service we got from Above the Mist. They were professional, timely, considerate, and very friendly. The pastor and photographer are phenomenal and are excellent at putting people at ease and making them feel special. The vendors they use to complete your ceremony can't be beat. Plus, their prices are the best in Gatlinburg for what you get. I can't say enough good things. They really went above and beyond to make our day perfect and I'll never forget it!Sent on 11/09/2015

As a magazine editor in the wedding industry, I work with world-class wedding planners every day, but I wouldn't trade any of them for Megan at Above the Mist! For an overwhelmed bride, her help was invaluable. Not only does she have EVERY connection you can ever imagine, she was incredibly easy to work with and extra enthusiastic about every single detail. I was always impressed by how quickly she responded to any emails, calls or texts (I swear, the lady never sleeps), and her positive attitude kept any worries at bay. Her planning saved the day with a rehearsal dinner snafu and went above and beyond to make sure my mother- and father-in-law were completely satisfied — even all the way in Florida! Megan handled every situation with grace and a get-it-done attitude that I LOVED since I was worried about the logistics of my wedding day. I shouldn't have been anxious even a bit though, because Megan had it all under control from a stress-free rehearsal (and with my friends and family, this is really saying something) to coordinating with all of our vendors (saved me so much time). She made my day PERFECT without a single detail overlooked. Bonus: she even made sure my new hubby and I were well-fed by getting us plates from the buffet. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Brides, you will adore Megan; she is simply amazing and oh yeah, a whole lot of fun too!! Can't say enough about her! Thank you Megan for all your help!Sent on 07/20/2015

Above the Mist made my wedding day a breeze! Everything was taken care of, from the officiant, the bouquet and boutonnieres, the photographer, the venue, and all necessary permits. We opted for the riverside ceremony in the National Park outside of Gatlinburg and it was gorgeous. The photographer was very professional and we loved our pictures. The officiant was very friendly and put us at ease and delivered a beautiful ceremony. I have only wonderful memories of my wedding day thanks to Above the Mist and highly recommend their services to anyone.Sent on 09/24/2015

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Above the Mist! The quality you get for the price is unbelievable! Kimberly, Megan, Carrie, Joannie, all of the ladies at Above the Mist did a fantastic job helping me plan the wedding of my dreams on a MAJOR budget! I didn't have high expectations of the food, or anything, but it was the best wedding food I've ever had! We had guests comment about our "Prime Rib" which was really just roast beef! The preacher took time to get to know us, and did a phenomenal job making our day special and PERFECT. Throughout the planning process, the ladies catered to all of my "special requests" such as making the inside of my cake blue, or releasing balloons at the ceremony. The day of the ceremony, I was running late and turned into bridezilla (for just a minute) and Kimberly calmed me down instantly and made me feel so at ease! I showed up, and everything was so smooth and just absolutely perfect!Sent on 03/03/2015

We decided on a destination wedding... and Just buy searching online Above the mist seemed to have exactly what we wanted for a very reasonable Price... I stalked them all year online because I was worried things wouldn't be as offered thru their website... HOWEVER We were so relieved to see that everything was Beautiful! The cake which we thought was going to be small was HUGE!and they made it as quirky as I wanted with no problems! Flowers were Beautiful! For a full packaged Wedding I definatly reccomend this company as they have so many venues and exactly what you are looking for for a great Price!Sent on 11/01/2014

The staff at Above the Mist is so wonderful to work with and I recommend them to EVERYONE!!! They are very prompt to respond to both phone calls and emails. To them, no question is a dumb question. I literally asked them anything and everything that came to mind and they answered everything and really set my mind at ease. I was a little hesitant in having a destination wedding because I thought something would be overlooked or forgotten, I was wrong - they took care of everything and left no stone unturned. They took care of the details and we just had to show up. I cannot express enough how great their services and staff are.Sent on 11/19/2014

This company has provided everything they said they would. Very easy to work with, even called the day before to make sure we knew how to get to the site, had our marriage license, explained how the ceremony would go, etc. Based on the ceremony, the price, and the friendliness of the staff, I would definitely recommend above the mist.Sent on 09/15/2014
