The Top 3 Reasons to have a Chateau Selah Wedding

Chateau Selah, Johnson City Tennessee

You might be thinking, “Why should I have my wedding in East Tennessee? What is so special about the place?” Well, quite a lot! Not only is Tennessee an amazing state filled with gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and caverns you can explore at all times of the year, but it’s also home to gorgeous wedding venues like Chateau Selah. 

Located against the impressive backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains in Northeast Tennessee, Chateau Selah is a flawless venue for a Johnson City wedding. By flawless, I mean it has everything you need for an impressive and lavish wedding–and I mean everything. 

But before I get into all the goodies this venue has to offer your Johnson City wedding, I’d like to toast you on your engagement. Finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with is such a rewarding experience, and you truly deserve it. You also deserve to have a seamless and stress-free wedding experience, and while it can be overwhelming (I get it!), it is the most worthwhile thing you’ll ever do.

I’m here to make that experience easier on you, which is why I’ve brought you three reasons to have your Johnson City wedding at Chateau Selah:

  1. A ceremony experience you’ll cherish forever

The backdrop of the ceremony space at Chateau Selah is, to put it plainly, a green-soaked forest. I can’t do it justice by describing it in words; it’s something you must see for yourself. Standing at the ceremony space, overlooking miles of mountains painted with different hues of emerald green, noticing foggy clouds softly moving through, will take your breath away, hands down. 

  1. A reception pavilion with panoramic views

I have never seen a pavilion for a Johnson City wedding like the one at Chateau Selah. This is no ordinary wedding tent–this pavilion is an outdoor, wooden structure that lets every single guest enjoy a beautiful view, no matter where they are sitting! The wooden ceilings are draped with the softest, most billowy fabric that creates such a romantic vibe–it’s really something else!

  1. A serene chateau with timeless elegance

Sitting atop one of the venue’s hills is its chateau, a 4,500 sq. ft. beauty placed smartly within 82 acres of land. The home features an Old-World style (stone walls, wrought iron, and beautifully laid brick), four stories, three master suites, a sunset courtyard, a fireside courtyard, a mountain-view courtyard (yes, that many courtyards!), and plenty of indoor and outdoor fire pits for making memories with family and friends. 

The great thing about Chateau Selah is they offer custom packages, so you can pick and choose what you want to incorporate, making this venue the wedding of your dreams. Bonus tip: you can rent the chateau to stay in for the week or weekend of your wedding. This makes things so easy!
