I’m officially starting a new series to feature some of the incredible wedding venues we have in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia! I’ve been shooting weddings in the area for over six years now and I have been able to photograph at so many different venues that I thought I could share some of my favorites with you!
The very first venue I am going to share with you is the lovely Grace Meadow Farm in Jonesborough, Tennessee. It’s a family owned and operated farm started in 1993. In 2017 they decided to completely renovate the barn and pavilion, which was definitely the right choice!
This stunning wedding venue is now one of the largest in the area and can accommodate up to 1200 guests! They have multiple spaces to host your big event and have over 15,200 square feet of heated and air conditioned space available.
One of my favorite locations is the pavilion, which can easily fit 200 to 250 guests for your special day. It’s completely covered in the event of inclement weather (but they have AMPLE space indoors too!) and guests will have a panoramic view of the lake as you commit your lives to each other.
The dock is absolutely stunning as well and can be used for intimate gatherings of 100 people or less! But, it’s absolutely stunning for couple portraits regardless of where you say, “I do!”.
Grace Meadow Farm is a fully functioning farm and there are so many lovely locations to use for your portraits! The venue is situated on over 250 acres of land, so chances are you won’t even get to see all the gorgeous spots!
If you’re interested in having a completely jaw-dropping reception with over the top decor–Grace Meadow Farm is for you! Their 6250 square foot barn has space on not one, but two levels! White washed walls with tons of natural light from large windows on either side will give your wedding a well-lit glow! (Not to mention the chandeliers, sconces, and spotlights!) There’s a stage large enough for the entire wedding party and plenty of heat and air conditioning to make your big day comfortable regardless of the weather!
Whether you’re planning a wedding big or small, Grace Meadow Farm is definitely the perfect backdrop for your wedding. I cannot recommend this venue enough and I would love to be considered to work with you as you plan your special day!
