Beautiful Barn Venue Near Downtown Nashville
If you are looking for an all-in-one venue that has amazing options for an outdoor or indoor ceremony, gorgeous/natural scenery as a backdrop for photos, and a team that will go above an beyond to make your day perfect and stress-free, then Drakewood Farm should be your venue! When looking for a venue, we knew we wanted an option that spoke to our roots – Drakewood has small town charm just minutes away from downtown Nashville and is a great option for couples who appreciate all that nature and the outdoors have to offer. Even the reception venue, which is an extension of the barn, gives you the perfect balance of embracing the natural scenery with floor to ceiling windows that can be pulled open all while providing a roof over your head. No need to worry about planning a “rainy day” tent. This was also one of the few venues I looked at in the Nashville area that had both a bridal and groom suite on site for the entire wedding party to get ready.
If you are looking for a planning and a design team that you can trust to take care of all big planning steps and small details, go with Drakewood! We were able to describe and share a few pictures of the vibe we wanted for our wedding and Leann made our vision come true and then some! From the florals, to the color palette, to the design details. Everything was absolutely perfect. And they have great relationships with vendors from catering, to cake/baked goods, musicians/DJs and so much more. If you have an idea, they can recommend a vendor partner. Unlike some of the other “all inclusive” options in the area, you have the flexibility of choosing from so many options from design to vendors so you are able to truly make your wedding your own.
We had the not so fun task of planning our wedding during a global pandemic. The team at Drakewood Farm went above and beyond our expectations to be flexible with the constant changes in plans and implementation of COVID safety protocols. Major shoutout to Heather for holding our hands every step of the way. And for keeping us, our guests, and all staff safe.
Our wedding ended up being the BEST day, even if there wasn’t a global pandemic. And we have Drakewood to thank for that. We cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 12/06/2020

Drakewood farm Rustic glam wedding
Lets just begin with these words: Breath-taking, Beautiful, Elegant, Marvelous! The characterization of detail expressed from our quest as we celebrated the wedding of our Daughter.
The staff, and I mean every individual made the venue come to Live! Our vision was a bit Challenging as we themed it "RUSTIC ELEGANCE " with lots of bling!!! Believe me they certainly exceeded the challenge. And Asha was ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING! Mother Nature said "NO" to an outside wedding but Drakewood- Heather LeeAnne & Co. said YES.
The catering service and choice of DJ was on point. The florist created a beautiful and unique setting. Heather and her crew were fun and easy to work with. I highly recommend their services.Sent on 03/06/2020

My *husband* and I were married at the Drakewood Farm September 21, 2019. From the moment we began planning with the Drakewood staff, to the very end of our wedding night, Chris and I were blown away at each step of the process because of these incredible people and their truly breathtaking venue. Our guests, who came from all over the country, are still gushing about so many aspects of our wedding day, including the ease with which the day unfolded, the beauty and décor of the ceremony and reception spaces, the delicious appetizers, dinner and wedding cake, and the extremely well organized and executed special moments that took place, such as toasts, our first-dance, and more. Prior to our big day, friends and family kept telling me and Chris to be sure to eat and take time for just the two of us to breathe and take in the magic. We didn't need to try very hard to do these things because LeeAnn and Heather were there to guide us every step of the way. They made sure we received full plates of food and time together, after pictures, to eat our first appetizers and share some cocktails. They directed our young nieces and nephews and all other participants in our wedding with patience and true hospitality. Our DJ, Justin, was a crowd favorite. The dance floor was never empty! We had a couple of elderly and handicapped guests who did not have to worry about getting around because a staff person was always there to drive them to and from different areas of the property. We had 175 guests at our wedding and the space never felt over-crowded or uncomfortable. Our friends and family are made up of so many different kinds of people: introverts, extroverts, partiers, talkers, walkers, dancers, and all of them (I really mean ALL of them) were more complimentary of our wedding at the Drakewood than we ever could have imagined! Chris and I highly recommend the Drakewood Farm and the amazing and gifted staff who plan the events held at this very holy and special place. It was truly a dream come true for us!Sent on 09/25/2019
An amazing Venue and wonderful staff. The property has such a great variety for wedding day photos and we love that it is tucked away just enough to be private but close enough to travel too.
