Perfect Wedding at a Beautiful Venue
I got married on 10/12/19 at the Smithview Pavilion and it was everything I had ever dreamed of. The venue is absolutely stunning. We had our ceremony in the small cove near the pavilion and it was so dreamy. From the little creek that runs around the property to the gorgeous altar handmade from trees, this location was a perfect fit for a nature-lover like me. Their wedding coordinator, Lara, went above and beyond for us and made our day so much more special. If you're looking for a reasonably priced venue that will wow your guests, I would highly recommend checking this place out!Sent on 10/17/2019

Recently married at Smithview on May 4. It was a great experience from start to finish. All the girls were so helpful and the day off went off smoothly, even with the crazy weather. It is a beautiful venue. If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue this is the place!Sent on 05/13/2019

Great place to have your wedding.
The venue is simply beautiful. Staff is wonderful- Especially Laura who was fantastic. Multiple places to exchange vows all great. Photos just give you an ideal of the size and privacy. Go there and check it out. I highly recommend this facility and staff (especially Laura).Sent on 05/05/2019

Grace · Married on 04/19/2019
Everyone was incredibly accommodating and easily accessible. As the first wedding of this season I was incredibly impressed with all of the updates that they made and the care that they took of the location prior to my wedding. Anything that I needed or wanted help with they were there - including during the wedding. I would recommend this venue to anyone! They also give the best flexibility I have seen among venues by allowing you to choose all of your own vendors.Sent on 04/24/2019
Smith Event Centers's reply:Thank you very much for the review, Grace! We greatly appreciate it. Congratulations and all good wishes to you both!

Laura did such an awesome job! I would text her all the time (at many hours of the day/night) and she would be very responsive! Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Laura! We didn’t have to worry about anything. My family is still talking about how good everything turned out because of her! We are very grateful to have had her as a planner!Sent on 08/19/2018

Amazing Packages-Amazing Location
When it came down to making a decision Smithview was our top choice, until it became a very large wedding and my fear of rain. Lisa is amazing at her job and will help in anyway she can to make your day amazing! They offer packages that include everything to make it easy on you. The inside room that they had was too small for us, but the out door pavilion is gorgeous I was just terrified it would rain, I would recommend this to any East TN bride! it really is beautiful!!Sent on 12/13/2018

Smith event center was everything I could ask for and more! The service was amazing. Lara did a great job of keeping open communication with me. They made numerous updates to the grounds from the first time I visited till the day of my wedding that really brought the whole thing together. I was very very happy with the service I received and will continue to recommend them to anyone who is looking to have a wedding in Knoxville. The value is worth every penny and I'm just so happy my wedding day was flawlessly executed with their help.Sent on 05/08/2018

Taylor · Married on 03/17/2018
We got married March 17, 2018 at Smithview Pavilion, and it was absolutely perfect!! Our ceremony was outdoors, and the setting was gorgeous. The pavilion was perfect for our reception. Due to the beautiful setting, you barely have to do any setup/decorating. There is also a flower company on site, and they did a magnificent job on our flowers!Sent on 03/23/2018
I can’t say enough good things about the staff at Smith Event Centers. They are always very responsive, which made planning long distance so easy (we live in Wisconsin). Jessica and Lara (coordinators) were there for anything we needed throughout the rehearsal and wedding day. They worked so hard to cover up all the mistakes made by our disastrous caterer (side note: avoid Great Smoky Mountain Catering Company aka Alvin’s Kitchen!). They went above and beyond to make sure our day was absolutely perfect!!!
This venue is beautiful, the staff is awesome, and it’s all worth every penny!
Smith Event Centers's reply:Thank you Taylor for the 5-Star Review! Making your wedding day the best day of your life is our goal! We wish you & Eric a very happy life together!!

I had my wedding at the Life Event Center and it was the perfect location for my indoor wedding!! Perfect location in Maryville, and beautiful facilities! Lara Nuchols was amazing help on our day, without her the wedding really wouldn’t have came together as perfectly as it did! She was so helpful, friendly, and made sure everything was taken care of and went above and beyond! Thank you so much to everyone at Smith’s!!Sent on 02/11/2018

Alsiha · Married on 09/23/2017
Smithview Pavilion was an amazing place to get married and have our reception. They were great to work with and very fast on responding to emails. They also set up all the chairs and tables so we just had to decorate that morning. All of our guests were amazed at how beautiful the place was. It had a wide variety of places to take photos and to have the ceremony. They were very helpful and made our day run smooth. The flowers also turned out amazing. Everything looked just like we talked about and then some! Overall we are extremely happy we chose them for our venue and would recommend them to everyone.Sent on 10/10/2017

The team at Smithview made our day the BEST! It rained most the morning so we were not able to do the ceremony outside but Lara and Jessica set-up the pavilion beautifully to accommodate both ceremony and reception. Not only do you have my 5-Star review but you have a forever referral in me. Thanks for everything!Sent on 09/21/2017

Shannon · Married on 09/01/2017
I am beyond happy with our choice of going with Smith Event centers! The Pavilion was beyond expectations and the staff was wonderful. Lisa was there ANY time I had questions or concerns, I received so many calls and emails to keep up with me to make sure I was doing okay and to see if I needed any help with anything, I appreciated that so much. The venue offered so much and was too beautiful to pass up. The staff at the end of the night helped us clean up and were so nice. I am just so happy that we chose them & would recommend to all my friends. Thank you Smith Event Centers!Sent on 09/22/2017

Brittney · Married on 04/22/2017
We had a beautiful wedding on the most perfect day at Smithview Pavilion. Lisa, Jessica, and the Smith Event Centers ladies were so accommodating throughout the planning process, calling me to check in from time to time and taking meetings with me on my out-of-town schedule. We had our wedding out under the trees in the cove and our reception under the Pavilion, and that worked perfectly for us. Also, having the kitchen there in the Pavilion was a great help to our caterer. Overall, it was the perfect setting for a beautiful day. Thank you, Smith Event Centers!Sent on 05/30/2017
Smith Event Centers's reply:Super happy to hear that all went well with your experience - that's what we strive for with every wedding at Smithview Pavilion!!

Some friends and I planed an anniversary party with Smiths event Center. From start to finish Lisa, Jessica and Lara were so accommodating. We couldn't ask for better.The night of the event Cheryl was there as the onsite personnel, she too was top notch. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a special event. These ladies are the best!Sent on 04/13/2017

Kristen · Married on 03/24/2017
Be honest with what you want. They will tell you if they can do it and are very flexible. They spent so much time helping me arrange and rearrange tables, chairs, and decorations. No matter how many times we rearranged things, they were always cheerful and happy to assist. Out behind the venue, the grassy area and the bridge are wonderful for pictures. It really made my wedding day special.Sent on 05/02/2017
