With room for hosting ceremonies, receptions, and rehearsal dinners, this multifaceted event space would be fitting for once-in-a-lifetime memories. The premises are run by a family, so it benefits from their experience, dedication to quality service, and local know-how.

Facilities and Capacity

Select members of the wedding party can make use of the 600 square-foot get-ready rooms ahead of the big moment. These spaces allow for perfecting makeup and attire before the procession. What’s more, they also afford users views of the grounds. For the ceremony, couples can enjoy the patio courtyard that sits in the shade of tall trees. Here, dozens of guests can gather to watch as the happy couple are joined together by an officiant of their choosing. Wooden deck chairs can be arranged either side of the paved aisle. Underneath a linen-draped pergola, you can stand as you exchange vows and say “I do”. Elsewhere, against a balcony backdrop, the ceremony can take place as greenery and elegant lanterns line the brickwork aisle. This is only the beginning of ceremony options available at Maple Grove Estate.

For the all-important reception at Maple Grove Estate, a multitude of areas can be utilized by the recently married pair and their invited guests. Offering both tent-covered and exposed outdoor areas, an enjoyable time can be had by all as the festivities take shape. Round tables, elegant chairs, floral decor, fairy lights, and centerpieces help to make the venue look as resplendent as it should on your special day. Long banquet tables can also be arranged for those who would like a communal dining experience. Overall, the maximum capacity of this venue is 185 people.

What started life in 1799 as a private residence went on to have different functions over the years.

Amazing Experience

Booking Maple Grove Estate for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. It was the only venue we toured because everything about it was perfect. The entire property is gorgeous and well-maintained. Karen is extremely kind and she worked with me for the whole year prior, answering my questions through email in a timely manner. Karen and her husband were both present on the day and helped make the whole experience even more enjoyable for us and our guests. We highly recommend!!

Perfect Venue for a Perfect Day

I can not say enough good things about this wedding venue! My husband and I toured at the recommendation of our wedding planner, and I knew the moment I walked on site that it was where I wanted our wedding to be. The owner, Karen, is such a gem, and there are so many things about the venue that made it perfect. Not only was it absolutely gorgeous, but we loved that there were large, spacious, separate bride and grooms quarters to get ready in and that we (as the couple) were able to spend the night there after the wedding. We absolutely loved our experience at Maple Grove and had so many guests tell us that they loved it too. If you book your wedding here, you definitely won't regret it!

Beautiful Wedding Venue!

Maple Grove Estate was everything we had dreamed of for a wedding venue! We toured multiple wedding venues around the Knoxville area, and we knew as soon as we arrived at Maple Grove Estate, that it would be "the one". We met Karen on our tour, and her warm and welcoming personality did not go unnoticed. What stood out to us the most, is that Maple Grove Estate is a family owned wedding venue. And trust us when we say, that on your wedding day, you are going to feel just like family! Maple Grove Estate is absolutely stunning, so we kept things simple and let the venue speak for itself. My bridesmaids and I got ready on-site in the gorgeous bridal suite, and the groomsmen got ready upstairs in the groom's quarters. We got lucky with perfect Knoxville Spring weather, but rented a tent for the reception just in case. The month-of-coordinator, Amanda, was also extremely helpful and so incredibly good at what she does. We ended up hiring Karen's daughter-in-law, Megan Connors Floral & Styling, as our florist. Karen, Amanda, Megan, & team were absolutely unstoppable on the day-of. As someone who likes to be in control, I surprisingly left our day-of set up to them and couldn't have asked for anything better. I actually loved that I was just as surprised and in awe of everything as our guests were! We would 10/10 recommend Maple Grove Estate and we are so thankful for the great and professional experience they provided us with on our wedding day. -The Mitchells 05.01.21
