    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!

    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!

    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.
