We absolutely loved the McConnell House. Everything about this venue was top notch, food, drinks, bridal suite and the Events Manager Ashley. She was an absolute delight to work with...organized, kind, creative, thoughtful. We could go on. Our wedding day was so incredibly special and was made complete by choosing the McConnell House.Sent on 03/31/2019

McConnell House and our coordinator Ashley Jacobson were perfect for our wedding day. This was the most special day for us and Ashley made everything come together perfectly for what we envisioned for our day, and did it seamlessly.Sent on 11/14/2018
And the venue, gorgeous, old yet perfectly trendy for our taste! We absolutely loved it and could not have been happier. We received compliments across the board on how nice the venue was.
Just the most perfect night!
The McConnell House is always one of my favorites venues to shoot at. With natural light pouring in to just about every room in the house, it's a photographer's dream for indoor shots. The upstairs bridal suite and the ivy wall on the exterior are to die for. They are not a 'turn and burn' type of venue...the staff is always professional and energetic and seem genuinely invested in the couple and the overall outcome of wedding days. Highly recommend!
I have worked with this company before and after McConnell House was founded. You could not ask for a more professional and capable crew.
A beautiful setting for your wedding in Franklin. Their staff is fabulous and so is the food! So many options for both your ceremony and reception - brick interior walls, a tall staircase, big windows and real fireplaces - so much history. Create a beautiful reception here with any wedding style.
