You can set it up with lots of laughs, awws, smiles, and tears. It’s one of the best days of your life, so make it a happy and delightful occasion.

Villa Mayes: Knoxville Wedding Party Accommodations

Knoxville vacation rentals can be a dime a dozen, but Villa Mayes is anything but ordinary! This beautiful rental home serves perfectly for wedding parties looking for an upscale location to relax, entertain and prepare in total comfort for the days' big events. This includes Bridal parties, wedding guest accommodations, rehearsal dinners, and even a small, intimate outdoor wedding. 


“Weddings have become all-weekend affairs and brides and/or grooms want somewhere to hang out with their friends in between the wedding festivities. Villa Mayes offers two living rooms with large TVs, a spacious backyard with a private pool and grill and an open floor plan that makes it the ultimate wedding hangout spot. After having our house for a few months, we realized there's a lack of spaces for brides to stay, getting ready and relax with their whole bridal party before the big day and we knew our house was a great place for brides to do that,” says Annie, owner, and designer....

Gatlinburg Wedding DJ: Smokey Mountain Sounds

Smokey Mountain Sounds is an outstanding wedding DJ in Gatlinburg TN!


“Smokey Mountain Sounds has been in operation for approximately nine years but our team has a combined 35 years of industry knowledge!” says owners, Ron and Ellen. “When I was young, I went to a wedding with my mom and realized that DJs seem to be having a great time and I remember thinking, what a cool way to make money.” Ron continued, “I’ve learned so much since then, this is also a serious business, and the only limitation you have is the one you put on yourself. Not every bride is the same and should not be treated as if they are. Also, you have to really understand your market, and continually work to improve yourself. When it comes to our couples, we will listen to them.
