Receptions and Events

Imagine your reception on the private 50-acre estate, nestled into the hillside, or fill the Appalachian Party Barn with fun decor and musical sounds for a guaranteed fun time.

Load up the beverage shed and start up the music and your reception can be everything you dreamed it might be.

As members of the Blount County Wedding Professionals Association, we have experienced caterers, photographers, cake decorators, florists, ministers of all denominations, and decorators we can refer you to.  We feel they would be attentive to your desires as well as your budget.

However, you are welcome to provide your own vendors who will work closely with us to assure your wedding is as perfect as possible.

See our News from the Country for Special cakes, centerpieces and vintage or country decorations.

Our waterfall drapes make a great backdrop for either the cake or the head bridal table.  Here we used our whiskey keg table to contract with the crystal chandeliers.

Tents can be added to the side to the party barn to expand the area.  Here the tent has crystal chandeliers, plus the tent liner and the Christmas lights behind the tent liner.

You can see that the parking area is completely hidden from the tented reception area or the ceremonial site – yet convenient to both.

The barn can be dressed up for a shabby chick theme, or kept rustic for a laid back boots and bluejeans appeal.
