It has stood the test of time since then and has come to take its place among the fine historical homes of the South.

This venue was PERFECT for our wedding on May 6, 2017! Stephanie was the venue coordinator and she actually came on board just a few months prior to our wedding. This at first made us nervous but we were soon put at ease and felt even more confident in her abilities than the previous coordinator. She made sure the grounds were beautiful for our wedding day and was readily available the week prior for us to come by and start getting things together (we were a DYI wedding and had built a rather large arbor and farm table for the event). She helped make sure things ran smoothly especially in the case of our unexpected weather (rain and a drop in 30 degrees outside). We had both the ceremony and reception here. There are so many options for how you want your event to look and play out (from the garden tiers to up in the house). We chose this venue for the look of the beautiful garden tiers, the wisteria walkway, and the fascinating history of the house itself. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 05/24/2017

On September 17, 2011, we had a wedding for our daughter at the Bleak House in Knoxville, TN. Everything was perfect! Jessie our coordinator had been so accommodating and helpful up to the day of the wedding. The venue was loved by everyone! We used the gardens for our ceremony & reception and the house was used for our cocktail hour. I cannot stress enough how pleased we all were with the final result! The bride & groom said it was better than they dreamt it would be. What more can you ask for??!!Sent on 09/28/2011

I highly recommend the Bleak House! The house itself was gorgeous and the grounds were perfect for our vintage outdoor wedding. The wedding coordinator, Jessie, was very helpful, acting as a liaison between us and the vendors, and setting up a timeline for the big day. Our wedding was everything we ever dreamed and more, and I couldn't have imagined it taking place anywhere else!Sent on 06/25/2012
