Deciding to elope to the mountains of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is the best decision you’ll ever make.   This article is specifically for couples who have chosen the Honeysuckle Hills wedding venue in Pigeon Forge, TN, but are unsure which all-inclusive elopement package is right for them.  But even if you’ve just now started researching ways to elope and where, it will give you some great ideas.

Our venue is best described as a creative photography session that happens to include a ceremony.  We have more beautiful locations to use for photography than any other venue, and we are the most private.  By only doing one wedding each day, our focus is on you and your happiness.

That said, I want to welcome you to our little family.  You’re going to work with me (Regina,) from start to finish.  You’ll also meet my future daughter-in-law, Sierra, who will most likely give your venue tour the day before your wedding.  She’ll also check on you while you’re getting ready, photograph little details like your dress, rings, and bouquet, and further help with our off-camera lighting during the session.  Sierra and I will direct your ceremony together, and she’ll even play a song for you while you walk down the aisle.

All Elopement packages include:
  • Ceremony location of your choice, with back-up plan in case it rains
  • Dressing areas / bridal suite open to wedding party and parents any time prior to ceremony
  • Guests welcome one hour prior to ceremony (for packages with family and friends)
  • Designated amount of activity time, which begins with the ceremony
  • Officiant to perform ceremony and file your license (discount if you provide your own)
  • Ceremony director & organizer so everyone knows what to do and when
  • Ability to change the ceremony start time for the most optimum weather opportunity
  • High-end, creative wedding photography beginning 30 min prior to ceremony time
  • ALL images in high resolution via digital download, with copyright release
  • Highlight slideshow of photographer’s favorite images mixed with short video clips
  • Creative enhancements at photographer’s discretion (reducing double chins, removing blemishes, black and white, sepia, and more)
  • One Signature Art Collage (photographer chooses images to blend together for creative art piece)
Regina’s Signature Art Collages usually combine one to three images together to tell your story
Weddings for Couples Only

If it’s just the two of you without your parents, siblings or friends, this can be the most romantic way to get married.  These packages are also priced more economically than weddings with guests since there are fewer people to organize and less resources used.   Rest assured you can always upgrade to a wedding package with guests if your secret gets out and family insists on attending.

Each package is based on the activity time you’ll need for the number of locations you desire for photographs with the two of you.  The number of locations and proximity to each other ultimately determine how many we can accomplish, in addition to how many children and the age of those in attendance.

Elopement Packages for Weddings with Guests
Each wedding package is based on an average amount of time needed for a maximum guest count without making you feel rushed.  Exceeding the guest count may force you to choose between family group picture requests or the photography locations for the two of you.

You will always have the option to upgrade if your guest count increases.  For now, choose the package with the recommended count that does not exceed your invitation list.  For example, if you are inviting 20 guests, choose the package for a maximum of 30.

Every group is unique, and we will always make the best and most efficient use of the time available to us.  Your happiness means the world to Sierra and Regina.  They know you love those pictures!
