Dreams do come true!
My daughter and son-in-law loved Barn in the Bend! The location is close to Nashville and offers a beautiful view of the Nashville skyline. Great central location to Nashville and surrounding suburbs. A hidden gem that offers a peaceful, natural setting for beautiful pictures. We loved the old church pews and arbor for the ceremony. The bride and groom rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The catering kitchen has 2 refrigerators for flowers and food.
The reception area in the Barn is filled with gorgeous antiques, drapery and chandeliers that give it just the right southern charm. A well equipped photo booth helps your guests create some fun memories. The venue offers a room full of “props” for your use.
My daughter fell in love with the venue immediately because of the setting. I fell in love with it because Jackie (the owner) offers several “all inclusive” packages that make budgeting a breeze. This was our 2nd daughter to marry. Our first wedding (first daughter) had quite a few unplanned, surprise expenses so I jumped at the package deal when Jackie mentioned it! The all inclusive is definitely the way to go if you want to stay on a budget yet flexible enough that your wedding is personalized to your liking.
Jackie is a very responsive communicator and easy to work with. Corrine, our coordinator, was a pure joy and ensured everything ran smoothly. She was in constant communication and always nearby in case we had questions. We highly recommend Ally and her team at Missions BBQ for their delicious food and incredible customer service. Julie at CraziCakes created a scrumptious cake and worked closely with my daughter on flavors and design.
I just can’t say enough about our perfect day! Thanks Barn in the Bend and staff/vendors for making my daughter’s wedding dream come true!Sent on 04/19/2021

Barn in the Bend is beautiful!
My daughter was married at this venue this past weekend and it was just beautiful! The venue is already beautifully decorated but you can add or change and make it your own. The bride and groom suites are so nice and bathrooms and kitchen are easily accessible. Jackie is the nicest person to work with and made everything so perfect for our family. We highly recommend this venue for any event and especially for weddings!Sent on 10/22/2020

Perfect Country Wedding
The venue chapel created a beautiful view that all of our guests raved about, the barn is setup and organzied beautifully with adorable country chic furniture, everyone loved the self serve photo booth and my absolute favorite part of the establishment are the bridal suite and groom's quarters. I almost made my groom switch with me so I could watch football since the quarters has a tv (it was Sunday). Jackie and Natasha are excellent. They answered all of my many questions, they were flexible with all of our requests, they are super responsive and best of all they are so sweet and fun to work with!Sent on 10/15/2020
