Mountain Mist Farms: An Intimate Wedding Location
The Mountain Mist Farms in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, offers a simple and beautiful serene environment for low-key weddings and intimate elopements. Sitting at the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, this refreshing and relaxing farm is the perfect setting for a small wedding with family and friends. The beauty of this place is indescribable, and the incredible views of the Smoky Mountains will take your breath away while making for amazing photos.
About The Farm
The Mountain Mist Farms is a family-owned venue with over four generations of rich history. Long before it was a wedding location, the place operated as a vineyard and winery for years in Pigeon Forge. Travelers going through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge would visit the farm for wine tasting and quiet picnics. Visitors describe the place as a piece of heaven where you can take a break from the crazy traffic, relax, and unwind in the midst of nature.
Today, the farm still operates as a vineyard offering wine-tasting experiences and walk-through tours of the farms while doubling as a Smoky Mountain wedding venue. It has acres of Concords, Raspberries, Blackberries, Muscadines, Gooseberries, and Elderberries. As of 2018, the farm added peach trees that visitors can pick and enjoy.
This mountain wedding venue is located a little off the beaten path near Pigeon Forge, TN. A small 5-minute drive off the main strip, you’ll find yourself in this lovely location with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains. It’s the perfect spot for a wedding, elopement, rehearsal dinner, or family reunion.
Mountain Mist Farms has three beautiful spaces for your wedding – the outdoor ceremony site for your vows, the rustic barn for your reception, and the vineyard for your wedding pictures.
The Outdoor Ceremony Deck
On the outdoor ceremony deck, you can have an outdoor wedding overlooking the acres of vineyards and the Smoky Mountain. The greenery and mountain view make for a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos to commemorate your special day. The Caney Creek runs through the farm, so you’ll hear the relaxing sounds of gushing water as you say yes to your loved one.
The Rustic Barn
The rustic barn is the perfect location for hosting your reception and can accommodate up to 120 guests. It includes chairs, lines, and tables and is usually filled with ten thousand twink lights that play backdrop to your dream wedding.
The rustic barn comes with a chic bridal suite and gent’s room where you and your wedding entourage can get ready for the main wedding ceremony.
The tall vineyards at Mountain Mist Farms are perfect for taking stunning photos for your album. You can take first-look pictures to capture the moment you first set eyes on your partner in their spiffy new tuxedo or Cinderella gown. You can also take group photos with your bridesmaids or groomsmen while walking through the yard.

Smoky Mountain Photographer
I am a wedding photographer based in Knoxville who loves taking stunning wedding photos for couples in the Smokies. The endless greenery, breathtaking scenery, and tall vineyards set the right lovey-dovey mood and make for beautiful backdrops. The natural beauty of the great mountain and the serene environment is quite picturesque.
As a licensed Smoky Mountain Photographer, I’d love to take your elopement and wedding photos on this beautiful farm. I love streams and mountains and can easily capture intimate moments with your partner and wedding guests. Feel free to review my portfolio for some of my most recent work in the Smokies.
