    Excellent Wedding Venue

    We hired 1705 East, owned by Rocky Top catering, after we had celebrated a birthday party through Rocky Top catering. Their food is excellent. We had our wedding ceremony and our reception at 1705 East. Makes it very easy when they are also a catering company. Tons of food selections to create a menu. Quann was our go-to person and was there every step of the way in planning our menu and our reception. This location has an excellent large bar for cocktail hour and and an up stairs bridal suite - with 2 make-up stations and a sink. My bridemaids and I got ready at 1705. We had an amazingbwedding, and I would recommend 1705 and Rocky Top catering!
