    Absolutely Perfect

    Vicki and the entire Rocky Top staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we dreamed of which it was AND MORE! The venue itself is breathtaking but what really makes it so great is how the staff makes you feel from the time you book with them until after. The day of you are their number one priority and they make sure everything goes exactly how it should. The food was delicious and we received so many compliments about it. We could not be happier with choosing Vicki, rocky top and the 1705 team for our dream wedding!

The Reception space is wonderful! With their new renovations, the space is perfect for bringing in your own colors and designs to customize this venue to your specific style. There is a great nook for the Photo Booth, a beautiful cake location in front of their glass wine cellar, and a great dance floor space. The venue creates a great experience for guests, especially with the different rooms for entertaining throughout the night. We always look forward to our next event at 1705 Prime!
