Located in the heart of Knoxville, Dara’s Garden has a vast variety of locations to make all your bridal dreams come true. With classic southern weddings, a farmhouse, or rustic stone steps for your altar, Dara’s has it all. Dara’s has breathtaking gardens and flowers all around the property to make your wedding that much more dreamy and beautiful.
Here’s a review we found from a former bride:
“Such a beautiful venue and beautiful people who work so hard to make sure your wedding day is perfect. Dara and Kate were so sweet and easy to work with. They have so many options for places where the ceremony and reception can be held to accommodate what you are looking for. The house was perfect for the wedding party to get ready with plenty of room and still be separated. The grounds are so beautiful and has been one of the top compliments from our guest and those who watched our wedding video. Having such a large area gave us a variety for our pictures so they don’t all look the same. I would recommend this venue to anybody looking. There was nothing that I would have changed. Our wedding day was a dream come true and they made sure it was nothing less!”
Sampson’s Hollow is located in Walland, Tennessee and is surrounded by the Smoky Mountains and stunningly green hills. If you’re looking for the perfect location for your dreamy rustic woodland wedding, this is it. They have 8 different spots for your ceremony to take place, and are sure to make your wedding dreams come true.
One bride says, “Sampson’s hollow was the most magical venue for us. They have multiple wedding sites that you can choose from, and packages you can always customize. Not to mention their amazing staff and punctuality.”
Heartland Meadows is a dreamy farm with over 58 acres and 5 locations for you to choose from. They have farm tables and chapel pews on site for an authentic southern wedding fit for any Knoxville Bride! Boho bride or rustic dream weddings? Heartland can make your dreams come true!
“I cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for the staff of Heartland Meadows! They treated us like family and made our day perfect! You could not ask for a better venue or for better people for your wedding.”
The Quarry is a stunning outdoor location in Western Knoxville, Tennessee. Surrounded by marble and gorgeous rock it’s nicknamed “The Marble City”. This popular venue spot has indoor and outdoor options for your picture-perfect day. Not only is the Quarry a unique outdoor location, but you are able to get pictures that are breathtaking with the gorgeous scenery all around.
I was lucky enough to be able to shoot an elopement at the The Quarry and I’m obsessed. The stunning marble and rock was out of this world, and it was perfect for this adventurous Knoxville couple to slow down and take each other in on their perfect day.
Riverview Family Farms was started in 1801 and is such a stunning location for a breathtaking southern wedding. They have incredibly gorgeous venues fit for any bride’s dreams, but also provide help planning and executing your vision. Not only are you getting a gorgeous venue, but a team of people that are there to support and love you making your day as easy as possible.
“Do not look at any other venue! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Rachel went above and beyond to make sure everything went so smoothly and that I didn’t have to worry about anything as the bride! The venue is stunning and affordable and our guests had the time of their lives! You will not regret choosing this venue!”
