Marylynne and Jeremy were the sweetest couple. After sharing a wonderful relationship, they decided to plan a fall Tennessee wedding day in the mountains. The Magnolia Venue served at the perfect location for their special day. With a breathtaking mountain view and versatile ceremony and reception space, they knew it was meant to be.
