I cannot say enough wonderful things about McConnell House! From our event coordinator, Kari, to the food to the decor... it was all perfect. We held our wedding reception at MH, and the entire night was flawless. People could not stop complimenting how cool the venue was, and how different it is from you regular wedding reception in one big room. To have different levels to explore is so cool, and the way the party flowed from room to room was fun to watch!
The food was AMAZING. People are still telling us that, months later. We had a great tasting a few weeks before the wedding, and the food on the day of was even better than that.
I cannot speak highly enough of Kari and her staff. It truly was the best experience working with them, and I would recommend them to any bride looking for a unique and fun venue and wedding planning experience!

Mcconnell house beautiful
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.
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 was truly beautiful! We used the venue for my mom's 50th birthday and they made the whole event so easy to plan. Ashley recommended the entertainment and cake vendor, and all the catering was in house. It was truly amazing and easy! Thank you!

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.
