Wedding Coordinating 

After months of planning all the aspects of your wedding, don't leave the execution of your final details to chance! When your wedding day
arrives, you need a professional to execute all of your hard work. You should be enjoying every minute of the big day and not carrying a
clipboard around checking off and tending to the details.

Let's get together and chat about your thoughts and dreams for your big day! There's never a charge for a face-to-face consultation to make certain we're both on the same page. You can reach Lara at (865) 980-8989 or (865) 548-3695 for an appointment or email:  [email protected] 

Please don't "fly by the seat of your pants" and leave your wedding day activities up to chance. Volunteer helpers are nice, but they typically don't know enough about the venue or specific issues that might arise and what to do if it happens! 



"I had my wedding at the Life Event Center and it was the perfect location for my indoor wedding!! Perfect location in Maryville, and beautiful facilities! Lara was amazing help on our day, without her the wedding really wouldn’t have came together as perfectly as it did! She was so helpful, friendly, and made sure everything was taken care of and went above and beyond! Thank you so much to everyone at Smith Event Centers!! "  -  Amber D.


"Lara is wonderful to work with! The facility is beautiful and offers unlimited options for the ceremony site. The rental price is very reasonable and includes almost everything. Lara is a pleasure to work with and is very professional and accommodating. We were extremely pleased with our choice to have our wedding and reception there. We would recommend Smithview Pavilion to everyone! "  -  Katie N.
