Our Story

Welcome to our barn wedding venue in the TN Smoky Mountains with spacious outdoor gardens, horses, country-chic décor and a family staff dedicated to pleasing its couples.  Regina and Sierra make your wedding experience more personal, planning with you from start to finish.  All-inclusive wedding packages are their specialty for both elopements and weddings with receptions.

Regina grew up on the Honeysuckle Hills farm, enjoying mountain life with a family who fostered her love for the art of photography.  Instead of sweating in the hay fields, she chased butterflies.  In 1986 she worked all summer at Dollywood for her first “real” Minolta 35mm film camera, and traded butterflies for human subjects.  She made the professional leap in 2002 and acquired her Master of Photography title with PPA some years later.   

Her father died of lung cancer in 2005.   Honeysuckle Hills was born in 2006 as a testament to Regina’s love for her Daddy and a way to share real Smoky Mountain experiences with couples looking for something more personal.  She knows the importance of wedding memories that will tug at your heartstrings forever.

Sierra, Regina’s daughter-in-law, will steal your heart immediately.  Her innocence and genuine kindness will make you feel like part of the family.  She, too, is a PPA member and talented photographer.

If photography is important to you, this is your heaven on earth.  Even if you use your own photographer, our venue has more scenic areas than any other with horses, two unique bridges, creek, waterfall, stone arch, flower gardens and rolling hills.  Our mountain view / nature preserve is a huge favorite here.  But if that’s not enough, ask the girls to take you to some secret places at their home that borders the Smoky Mountain National Park.  While you’re at it, be sure to ask them about a favorite TV show that filmed a few episodes there.

Needless to say, lasting friendships are made here!
