About Castle Events and Weddings

Situated in Franklin, Tennessee, The Castle is a historic wedding venue. It sits just outside Nashville on 32 acres of lush Tennessee countryside, which includes rolling fields and idyllic hills covered in a cedar forest. At this venue, the view of the surrounding natural beauty goes for miles. Engagement parties and wedding showers are also welcomed here, alongside ceremonies and receptions.

Facilities and Capacity

Most gatherings held at Castle Events and Weddings take place outdoors, with the grand entrance playing host to ceremonies. The magnificent stone steps are framed by the regal backdrop of the castle, creating an unforgettable sight. Chairs are set up on the lawn for guests, so they can make the most of the warm Tennessee sun. Up to 300 guests can be accommodated here, depending on how you arrange the space and if you decide to tent the lawns. Upstairs, the castle has one full bathroom, as well as a get-ready room and two half bathrooms downstairs with lounge areas and the kitchen.

Across the Castle’s 100 acres you will find countless beautiful backdrops for your wedding photos. Castle Events and Weddings has plentiful onsite parking for guests driving themselves to your big day. Twinkling market lights can be strung between the splendid trees, creating a magical, fairytale-worthy atmosphere. Your caterer could enjoy the convenience of having a kitchen onsite, while they put the final touches on your mouth-watering reception cuisine.

History

The Castle was built around 1928 by John P. Welch. It was originally used as a stopover for mobsters moving between Chicago and Florida, or other cities. After this, it became an underground gambling hall complete with false walls and secret cellars to hide in. Following on from this, in the 40s it became a short-lived gourmet restaurant that catered to the rich and famous. It hosted such stars of the silver screen as Bob Hope, Spencer Tracy, and Betty Grable. It has had many uses since then, like a riding academy, and later a private residence until it was purchased in 1979 by the Nuyens family. They opened the castle as a recording studio several years later in 1982. Many renowned musicians have recorded here, from Etta James to Alison Kraus to Katy Perry.
