Welcome to Northeast Tennessee! Congratulations, you’ve picked one of the most beautiful hidden gems in the Appalachian Mountains (and country!), and a perfect place to get married! Northeast Tennessee has a huge variety in wedding venues, from refurbished downtown warehouses that have been given a modern twist, to beautiful, historical barn settings. And no matter where you decide to get married, you can’t go wrong being right in the heart of the mountains!
Before you decide on a wedding venue, you’ll need to narrow it down. Try to think about what you want your wedding day to feel like. Do you enjoy a beautiful mountain view through a window while sitting by a fireplace, or are you more comfortable kicking back and having a glass of wine by a beautiful creek? Are you thinking of an epic ceremony overlooking mountains and rolling hills? Or is an indoor ceremony, safe from the elements, more your style?
Once you’ve figured out your style and have a vision, go ahead and check out the different venues below. Check their websites to see what fits with your vision and style, then make sure to schedule tours with your favorite ones! Visiting a venue is much different than seeing pictures of it online, so go take a look. There is nothing like seeing a venue in person to help make up your mind!
