Depending on which way you turn guest will be able to see the distant skyline of Nashville, beautiful farms in the distance and the pastures filled with horses and cattle on our well-manicured grounds.

Barn in the Bend is only 15 minutes from downtown Nashville. It’s been in operation since the 1940s. It was originally a dairy farm and for the last 20 years it has been a horse and cattle farm. We have raised our three sons on this farm and have many cherished memories and we hope you’ll be able to make lasting memories of your special day here as well.

Could not have picked a better location!
Jackie (owner) and Natasha (coordinator) were AMAZING to work with! The venue was absolutely stunning and everything went off without a hitch! The only thing I wish is that the barn had air conditioning, but once the sun went down it cooled off. I love that it was almost all-inclusive - the tables, chairs & linens were already out so all we had to do was add our personal touches & decorate with the center pieces.
The bridal sweet was AMAZING! The hair & makeup team were able to come on site which made everything so easy!! Natasha kept us on schedule, and I am so thankful for all that she did to ensure my husband & I were happy! Thank you so much!!Sent on 09/30/2019

In awe of how flawless our day was...
Wow - what an amazing day we had! Honestly, Jackie made the entire process simple! From the first time we saw the chapel we knew barn in the bend was the place for us! Natasha did a fabulous job as our coordinator! To be honest, as a bride i think i was the least stressed out of everyone on this day! They made everything so simple and made sure that i didn’t have to worry about a thing! On op if the venue having numerous pieces that we could use for decoration - we were able to bring in anything we needed and use outside vendors - which totally helped us save $$$$ I’m forever grateful and will never forget our incredible day!Sent on 10/01/2019

Beautiful and Perfect
Both, my husband and I, are beyond satisfied with our choice to get married here. The beautiful country setting in the hills of Tennessee combined with the gorgeous barn and chapel made our dream wedding a reality. The barn and it’s surroundings are already so beautiful and tastefully decorated, adding our own touches to the tables was all the work we had to put in. Additionally, the barn and surrounding areas make this venue perfect for a larger wedding. We worked with Jackie and Corinne who were more than accommodating and helped make the day run smoothly with no hiccups. Thank you Barn in the Bend. We had the day we hoped for because of you.Sent on 10/10/2019
