The McConnell House was perfect for our small summer wedding! The space itself is beautiful and unique. The in house catering is a huge plus - it made our planning so much easier and the food was fabulous. We had multiple dietary restrictions and they were wonderfully accommodating. Ashley, the event coordinator, is absolutely wonderful and was so much more helpful than I ever expected! Highly recommend.Sent on 08/26/2019

McConnell House's reply:Edward -
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.
