In 2022, I’m already seeing a new trend for weddings: wedding-not-wedding venues, like The Social Kingsport Tennessee. You know, the venues that aren’t really for weddings. They come off as cooler, more laid back, and less “well-to-do” than your typical venue.
With The Social Kingsport Tennessee, you’re getting exactly that: a surprising venue for a wedding that gives you a sort of coolness not usually seen with wedding venues. This is definitely a 2022 trend I’m seeing, so let’s chat about five reasons why this venue is the choice wedding venue for the cool kids!
This venue is the perfect mix of rustic farmhouse and modern sophistication. It boasts warm brick with dark, moody hues, lofted ceilings with an industrialized touch, and floor-to-ceiling garage doors.
What I love about this venue is that it’s not trying too hard. It has great bones, and it lets those bones shine without any distractions.
Having your nuptials at The Social Kingsport Tennessee means you and your guests are going to have happy, full bellies. The venue offers locally grown and organic options based on seasonal availability, and the options are good.
You can choose from 12 different salads (like the sunshine salad or the insalata caprese), 16 entrees (ranging from Jamaican chicken or salmon filet to bourbon peppercorn filet or ahi tuna steak), 26 sides, and more! I especially love that they offer a carving station. This is a special touch that guests will salivate over for years to come!
The Social Kingsport Tennessee is a 5,000 square foot space that holds up to 200 guests. That means your B list just might make your A list! Not only that, but its large garage doors open out to an expansive lawn area that can be utilized for either your ceremony or reception (or both!).
The owners of this venue proudly give back to their community in big ways. When you choose The Social Kingsport Tennessee for your wedding venue, you’re allowing them to support the Coalition for Kids. What’s that, you ask? It’s a non-profit organization with a mission to help children in their community who are in need. The non-profit offers them a safe space to reside, with caring staff and volunteers. What an amazing commitment.
Yes, you read that right. The Social Kingsport Tennessee has an adorable hitching post, offering either a great ceremony backdrop or a cute destination for your photo booth. Talk about a cool, country cowboy vibe!

Other things I love about The Social Kingsport Tennessee? It’s surrounded by an incredible town full of the best small businesses! The things to do in Kingsport Tennessee are limitless and include so many awesome shops, restaurants, and places. Right next to this Kingsport wedding venue is Main Street Pizza Company, which is by far one of the best pizza places in the Tri-Cities! You’ll also find Mid City Grill just two shops away and they’re known for the best late night gourmet and cheesecakes around.
It’s also so cool that there are super modern Airbnbs within a short distance of the venue! They make for perfect getting ready spots for the wedding party as well as convenient locations for guests to stay when in town for your wedding.
