Beautiful New Venue
I booked my wedding at Gardens in the Gorge just as they were finishing construction. We hosted just the reception there, and every part of the venue was thoughtfully designed for guests, photos, and bridal party accommodation. Lindsey & Nelly were both highly responsive and helpful. My husband and I took some breathtaking pictures on site that I will cherish forever. My favorite parts of the event hall are the gigantic windows and the bridal suite!Sent on 01/22/2020
Gardens in the Gorge's reply:Thank you, Megan! We loved being a part of your beautiful day! I can't wait to see more of your gorgeous photos.

Gorgeous views! Great people!
My elopement at Gardens in the Gorge was everything I ever dreamt of! The best day of my life for sure and none of it could have happened without the amazing people at this beautiful venue. We even got to have our dog with us during the wedding! The space is just gorgeous with wooded views & a beautiful scenic view of the Tennessee River Gorge. All around beauty every way you turn. The people were great and will do anything that they are able to do ( within reason ) to make your day special! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue!Sent on 09/25/2019
Gardens in the Gorge's reply:Bree, you were such a lovely bride and we loved having your morning ceremony on The Green, it was absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for all the kind words!

Gorgeous venue and helpful staff!
I booked this venue when it was still under construction but I could see their vision and I am so glad I took the risk. The venue turned out absolutely beautiful. The manor house where I had my reception is chic, versatile, and seamlessly compliments the view, which is stunning. I didn't feel the need to get overly creative with decorations because the venue and view shines on its own!Sent on 09/28/2019
Not only was I blown away with the venue, but I was equally impressed with Lindsey and her family. They kept me up to date with the progress of construction and happily answered any questions I had, which were quite a few. They were very helpful throughout the entire planning process and were flexible with me when I requested some set up time the day before my wedding. I recommend them a hundred times over! My day was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing.
Gardens in the Gorge's reply:Thank you, Jordan! And thank you for booking us when there were no walls just a vision! We enjoyed helping you create your perfect day! Congratulations again on your wedding!
