Facilities and Capacity
Up to 250 guests can join couples on their wedding day at 1705 East. The front porch of this manor house makes an elegant ceremony location. Flanked by white columns and a backdrop of shining glass, couples can marry on the slightly raised porch while guests watch from the front lawn. The brick walkway to the front door makes the perfect aisle. Couples wanting a more natural outdoor ceremony can choose from other locations on the lush and well-manicured property. Inside, a number of small rooms make ideal locations for cocktail receptions, bridal suites, and grooms' rooms, rehearsal dinners, or other occasions. There is even a wine cellar room, perfect for romantic photography. The main space in this manor house serves as a ballroom or banquet space. The ceilings stretch two stories high and, along the top of the wall, slim windows let in natural light. Pendant light fixtures hang from the ceiling, some emitting a warm glow and some shining in dazzling silver. The hardwood floor is smooth and chic and perfect for dancing the night away, no matter how couples want their reception tables arranged.

All-Inclusive Venue

We were looking for a venue where everything was all-encompassing and came across 1705 East...it was perfect! The venue is beautiful, location is convenient, and the fact that food and drinks are all combined with the venue through Rocky Top Catering, made everything so easy! We worked with both Quann and Karlee, and both were incredible and very quick to respond to any questions we had throughout the process.
