Absolute perfection! It was, without a doubt, the best place to have our wedding.

I am so happy that we found Bluff Mountain Inn! We visited several different wedding venues in the area, and this was by far the best and most professional of them all. Everyone was such a joy to work with and everything came together so perfectly (at least from my perspective!). Talia did a great job coordinating our event and getting even the smallest details just right for our big day. Hayley is such a sweetheart and made us all look like movie stars. Rick and Mary did an incredible job with the photography. They took so many pictures and we now have such beautiful photos that captured all the special moments of the day. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Our wedding day turned out exactly the way we imagined it would and it was all due to everyone working behind the scenes at Bluff Mountain Inn!

If I had the chance to do my wedding over again, I would go straight back to Bluff Mountain Inn!

My family and I were very happy with everything and everyone at Bluff Mountain Inn. The property was beautiful. The rooms to get ready were very nice. Everyone was very attentive to my bridal party and myself. Our hair stylist was great! We loved the photographer, Mary, and the quality of her work. Talia was very helpful and hospitable. The dinner and cake afterwards were fantastic, can't say enough about Jennifer and her fabulous service and attentiveness. The flowers were superb, and I loved them so much that I took them back home with me (to Ohio) and they lasted for over a week!! Fantastic place for a wedding.

Talia and her crew were so helpful during all of the planning. I have no idea why I was worrying about anything, they had the entire event timed out perfectly. Our day was even more magical and beautiful than I had pictured in my head. The venue is so beautiful. Food was really delicious. I had many of my guests compliment the chicken. It was very moist and tender. I, myself was more partial to the roast beef... Yum! Everything was fresh and hot. I was really impressed with the food. The photographer's, Rick and Mary were so wonderful. I liked how they teamed up to get shots from different angles simultaneously. All throughout the night they'd come get us for a special shot or they were just silently there capturing everything. Looking back, I now see how silly it was for me to stress about anything for my wedding day. The entire staff had everything perfectly timed and handled from start to finish that all I had to do was just enjoy myself. They came through with a magical night that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend! P. S. we're already planning a trip back 1. Because the area is gorgeous and we'd like to do more family photos with Rick and Mary.. ;)


One year ago today, my husband and I were married at Bluff Mountain Inn. As I look through our wedding photos and think back to that day, I am reminded of how special our wedding was, without all of the stress that typically comes with planning a wedding! We live out of state, but the Bluff Mountain Inn staff kept in touch with us through phone calls, emails, and a few on-site visits. Our wedding planner, Talia, allowed us to share our vision for the wedding, and turned our vision into the wedding of our dreams! The venue, bridal suite, hair and makeup, flowers, cake, photography, and reception were all greater than I could ever imagine. I felt as though I was living a fairy tale for a day! The team at RIK photography also captured the beautiful moments perfectly. When I look through my wedding album or CD, I'm always amazed by the beauty and emotion each picture holds. I appreciate the creativity, knowledge, and professionalism of the entire Bluff Mountain Inn staff. We would recommend that anyone planning a wedding to consider the Bluff Mountain Inn!

Bluff Mountain Inn is an Amazing place to get married!! I know firsthand I got married there last year 1/1/11 and Rhonda, Rick and all the staff made our day perfect and making a day perfect for me is very difficult. Rick captured our entire day with his creative eye and put our pictures to music and an awesome photo album. We enjoyed being married there so much we popped in for a unannounced visit and another photo shoot; again Rick and Rhonda made us very eel so very special.

Thank you for the awesome weekend! Our wedding was beautiful! Better than we could have ever asked for!



I was watching this slide show again (as I do from time to time). Unfortunately, the 1st anniversary trip won’t happen. This is because, fortunately, we are expecting a son on April 10th! We are so excited and often speak about our wedding day and how we would not have changed one single thing about it, including coming to Bluff Mountain Inn!

Bluff Mountain Inn is utterly fantastic. Because of the dedication of all associated with our Wedding (Deanna and Robert Elope to the Mountains) we have something to remember for a lifetime. Never in our wildest imaginations did we expect anything even remotely compared to this. We received the VIP treatment from start to finish and were made to feel like family during our stay. My wife’s hair and makeup was absolutely beautiful as well as the Chapel on site and the surrounding views of the Smoky Mountains. The grounds are kept in pristine condition and landscaping is something out of a Better Homes and Garden’s magazine. The ceremony and meal service afterwards was simply amazing. The food and wedding cake was delicious and the building where we dined had a wonderful Romantic atmosphere. The photographer who took our pictures is the best we have ever came in contact with. She spent so much extra time in ensuring we had multiple picture locations and the shots we wanted. I was left breathless when we saw our photographs, they are just stunning. Rick King and his wife are truly exceptional people who went the extra mile to give us both what we wanted on our wedding day as well as provide us with a beautiful honeymoon suite that gave us a tremendous sense of privacy and luxury. Thank you both so much, I am forever in your debt as this was truly the happiest day of my life and I owe it all to you and your staff because of the hard work and dedication everyone put in. Bluff Mountain Inn gave us everything we ever wanted and dreamed about for our Wedding day. In the end it’s about the couple being happy and Bluff Mountain Inn understands that philosophy and goes to the extreme to ensure it happens. Deanna and I are both U.S. Army Veterans and know integrity, character, and professionalism when we see it and you and your staff exhibit this constantly. Thanks again to you all, we appreciate everything you did and have absolutely no complaints. Having our wedding at your Inn was an outstanding choice and I highly recommend it to other couples considering eloping. They will not be disappointed.

We have gotten numerous compliments on our pictures already! While we are on the compliment subject, I would just like to let you know happy we are with how everything turned out. We want you all to know that we are so sincerely grateful to all of you for making our day so personal and wonderful! We were so pleased with all of your staff, you all made us feel so at ease and comfortable! We truly felt that you always kept our desires as your top priority in all that you did throughout the whole planning process and wedding day. We hope that Rhonda is recovering speedily! Please let her know that she can be so proud of Talia who did an excellent job on her first solo wedding.


With Sincere Gratitude,


Jennifer C

Dear Bluff Mountain Staff,


Since May of last year I have been dreaming of our perfect wedding day. Drew and I decided that we would rather have someone do all the hard work and allow us to enjoy our day. In November when I spoke to Rhonda on the phone, I knew I had found the perfect place to have our wedding. Over the many months leading up to September 20, 2008, I pondered over every small detail of what the day would be like. There are no words to describe how far you exceeded my expectations of the perfect day. Being so many miles away from Illinois and feeling like we were right at home is a great compliment to you and your staff. I was impressed with every single member of your team. It began with Elizabeth and her amazing skills with hair and makeup – I have to confess that I didn’t trust anyone to do my makeup – after meeting Elizabeth, I decided I wanted her to do it. I have never looked so gorgeous in all my life. What impressed me further was the attentiveness of the staff. I was checked on so many times, I felt like a queen! I didn’t even need to think about anything – it was all covered! The flowers looked like they were straight out of a magazine – they are in my freezer and I look at them every morning. Next came the most important part of the day – the ceremony. I was really nervous, but as I stood on the porch, Rhonda calmed me down. It all went off without a hitch, and most importantly, I didn’t have to worry about anything. Next was the reception, which was more beautiful than anything I had imagined. The food was excellent, and the cake was amazing. Since Saturday, I have had nothing but compliments from every single person at the wedding. I kept hearing, “This is such a gorgeous place, and the staff is so professional and on top of things!” Lastly, but certainly not least, Drew and I looked at our pictures today on Pictage and I have to say that I am loving every single shot!! So, thank you thank you thank you thank you. Thank you Rhonda, thank you Amanda, thank you Elizabeth, thank you Jennifer, thank you Rick, thank you to the staff at the reception, and thank you Zoe (little doggie) for making our wedding day so special. With all our love and appreciation,


Drew and Abby

“I was Charlotte’s Maid of Honor (the girl with the red hair) last weekend. I found a few pictures on your blog and the sideshow. Great job! I can’t wait to see them! Thanks again for everything. I know Charlotte & Eric were very pleased and are thankful that your team made things run so smoothly! It was absolutely beautiful. Thanks again!”


My husband and I got married there on June 22nd. I am emailing you for a couple reasons. One, I wanted to let you know once again how wonderful our wedding was and how absolutely unbelievably fantastic our pictures turned out to be. I have them up all over our house now and love showing them to everyone.


And now for the most important reason, my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law have finally set a date for their wedding and have expressed an intense interest in having their wedding at your venue. In fact, it was because of your venue and our wedding being there that caused them to set their date. My sister-in-law really loved everything about Bluff Mountain and all of your employees (kudos to you, your wife, and of course Amanda!).

Once again I just want to thank you for making my and Tony’s day better than I even imagined it could have been. We are telling everyone that if they are planning on going away to get married they need to hit you guys up first! Thank you all so much once again and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Also, just an FYI, my bro and sis-in-law have set their date for June 20, 2009.

Thank you, Ashley

Hi Rik and Rhonda!

Thank you for all the kindness and the extra above and beyond little things you did for the “kids.” I can’t thank you enough.

Cheryl (Mother of the Bride)

Hi, I am Tony M’s mother. You did his and Ashley’s wedding this past Sunday. You all did a wonderful job! From the brides and bridemaids hair and makeup to the awesome cakes that were made by Amanda. You are a lady in possession of many talents. Seeing how happy my son and his bride were that day was priceless. Because of all the work you all did so well, the day was free for all to focus just on Tony and Ashley, not on stressful details and such. I just want to thank you all for what you do. I am so anxious to see all the photos. I have actually been checking your site and blog to see if there is anything.


Anyway thanks again! Amanda, you are awesome!

I want to thank you all again for everything you did for not only me, but for everyone at the wedding. A week later everyone is still talking about how beautiful everything was. Thank you for making my wedding day a day of happiness and good memories. Thank you for making everything so beautiful. There are no words to truly describe what I am feeling or to thank you with. Just thank you, from the bottom of my heart and with everything I have.

Wendy and Denver Lihue, HI

We had a blast! I couldn’t have imagined the best day of my life at any other place. I felt completely relaxed and pampered. The pictures are amazing. Rick really captured our love and happiness for each other. Thank you for everything do and did.

Katie and Dock Kingston Springs, TN

We are finally back from honeymoon, we had a wonderful time. I just wanted to take the moment and thank you all for making our wedding day so special. I was worried that with the events of the week, the rehearsal flop, and the weather that we were headed for disaster and while no one but God can take credit for the beautiful sunshine filled day, I can not thank you guys enough for the beautiful ceremony and reception. The day was perfect and I have received nothing but positive feedback from all our guest. I have to thank you for the time and special care we received before the ceremony….please get that clock fixed as I was convinced we were running behind, HA. The cake’s were perfect, Kudos Amanda… did an amazing job. I really can not thank you guys enough!
