Why Whitestone is the Perfect Small Wedding Destination

The COVID-19 pandemic hit our country at the peak of wedding season. This has forced so many couples to change their venue, narrow down their guest list, cancel the caterers, cancel honeymoons, the list goes on. It is a devastating time for soon-to-be newlyweds, but we are writing today with good news. Whitestone is open for business, and we are ready to give you the small wedding of your dreams. A change of plans doesn’t mean your day can’t still be as special as you originally thought.

There is no better place than Whitestone Inn to have your small wedding amidst this pandemic. We will work with you to give you the socially distant wedding of your dreams. We can handle all the details over the phone or by email to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus. Trust us when we say that we are even more dedicated now to making your small wedding ceremony more special than you ever dreamed it could be. 

Due to our green and luscious landscape in the foothills of the Smokies, ensuring your guests maintain social distancing during your ceremony won’t be an issue at all. We have gazebos and other designated wedding spots around our property that you can utilize, but you are also welcome to have your socially distant wedding ceremony at the edge of our lake or even at the edge of our many forested areas. 

We understand that your guests may be concerned about catching a flight back home due to the impact that COVID-19 has had on so many airlines, but thanks to your last minute adjustment to your wedding plans, they now have a place to stay. This would make for a perfect road trip for all your guests coming in from out of town! Whitestone Inn offers a wide variety of rooms that your guests can be sure to relax, unwind, and enjoy a small vacation in. Plus, the Smoky Mountains are just a short drive away for their enjoyment the following days after your ceremony. 

Now, let’s talk about YOU. Can you imagine being able to have a gorgeous outdoor, small wedding on the same landscape you will be spending your honeymoon? We can, and now you can! Visit our website to find the perfect honeymoon suite for you and your future spouse that you can walk right up to after you say “I do.” We will do everything in our power to make this time as special and stress-free for you as possible.
