    Venue of your dreams!

    From the moment I walked into Ramble Creek I knew I wanted to get married there. Buck showed us around and graciously answered all of our questions. We sat down with him and went over all of Ramble’s guidelines and he provided us with a very detailed price-breakdown of our anticipated services. From the beginning they were nothing but transparent and super helpful in bringing our wedding vision to life.

    The venue itself is so naturally beautiful that it really doesn’t need a lot of ‘sprucing up’ compared to a lot of other places. The property has so much to offer beyond the grand hall which was another deciding factor for us. We knew that we wanted our ceremony outside; we had a cigar bar around the fire place, and utilized the lower lawn for giant yard games for our guests to play during the reception.

    Once we decided to book the venue I primarily worked with Jenny to get our plans set in motion. I can’t even tell you how many emails back and forth we had, but Jenny was a dream to work with and answered every question I could think of down to the tiniest details. Leading up to the wedding I felt very confident that the day would be perfect because Ramble Creek had been so easy to coordinate with. All of the food and bartending service was through them which made it even easier to have fewer vendors. If you’re a couple who are looking for a more inclusive venue then this is the place for you – they offer so many services in house that it will make your planning process a breeze!

    A few weeks before the wedding I was introduced to our venue director Megan who served as our point of contact on the big day. While we had a coordinator for our ceremony and flow of events, Megan was SO incredibly helpful. She made sure that everything got set up in its place, and even helped keep me calm when it started to rain during our outdoor ceremony. I was worried about how all the transitions would go, but Megan and her staff handled everything with ease and made the night go by seamlessly. She really is such a sweetheart and genuinely wants to make your day as stress-free and enjoyable as possible! On the actual wedding day I felt like I had to hardly worry about a thing and could just enjoy myself while getting ready.

    I wish I could relive the day over and over in part because of the dedicated work that the staff of Ramble Creek did for us. I can’t speak highly enough to their level of service and dedication to helping couples make their wedding dreams come true. Weddings are of course about the love that two people share, but having a venue that pulls all the details together certainly helps! Ramble Creek went above and beyond our expectations, and I’m sure they will for you too!

    The Perfect Day!

    It has been just over three weeks since I walked my baby down the aisle, and if I were to encapsulate my review into a single thought, it would be to wish that I were able to replicate that day...every single weekend...for the rest of my life!

    Bottom line...it was an unquestionably perfect day!

    We first began this journey back in Sept ‘18, and upon our mutual commitment all the way through the reception, I have never experienced a higher level of customer satisfaction than what was consistently rendered by these professionals.

    From the moment we pulled through the entrance gate, we were awed by the sheer splendor of this XX-acre plot of land that was seemingly drawn into the countryside by an artist of great renown. We were then given a walking tour of the grounds that prompted me to think that I had wasted a good bulk of my day visiting other venues that were neither comparable in terms of beauty nor ambience, and the sense of genuine tranquility the missus and I perceived informed us that our search was over.

    And even if there were ever any sliver of doubt, it was quickly dismissed in meeting with one of the co-owners (Jenny Yates), whose confident approach to answering our stream of questions was equally matched by a sense of elegance whereby we knew that she only had one standard...excellence!

    Over the next 10 months she and her team did not disappoint.

    In summary...
    - the owners (Buck & Jenny Yates) kept us informed of every detail throughout the process; accommodated any change that we had; and were open to receive/offer any suggestions that would ultimately improve and what will be a lifelong memory
    - coordination of vendors through the team was effortless
    - setup of the entire grounds was pristine, regal and befitting a princess
    - food (appetizers, main course and dessert offerings) was absolutely delicious and more than proportionate
    - timing of the reception agenda events flowed seamlessly
    - transition between reception and party was transparent to all in attendance
    - the DJ kept spinning tunes that kept the floor hopping (I know...reference shows my age) and his personality was "on fleek" throughout the night (more modern reference ;-)
    - the Wedding Director (Jessica) as well as the driver of the shuttle were...by their actions...equally invested in ensuring that everyone in attendance had the time of their lives

    BTW...I later found out that the shuttle driver was Buck's father...Mr. Yates, and from talking to others I believe he made it a point to hold a conversation with all 120+ guests. Buck and his father prove the old axiom, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." If I may add Mr. Yates...thank you Sir, for going out of your way to personally enhance our overall experience.

    Lastly, if I may humble brag, we made the incredibly smart decision to contract for the services of a wedding coordinator, and on the day of the blessed event our coordinator Lindsey took the reins, eliminating any potential missteps and proceeded to guide the entire day in an expert manner usually reserved for celebrities. At least that's how we felt ;-)

    HINT: ask for Lindsey by name...she was outstanding!!!

    Again, there are many, many thoughts that come to mind...Amazing...Exemplary...Wonderful...and one may feel free to use any other superlative found in Webster’s Dictionary, as each would accurately describe the end-to-end process we'd evaluate of allowing Jenny and Buck Yates to direct what will arguably be one of the more memorable days in the life of who I will always lovingly refer to as my little girl.

    Ramble Creek Team...both my wife and I, on behalf of our daughter, want to thank you for your diligence in perfectly executing a vision that likely began when she was truly a little girl, and from the bottom of our hearts we just want to say, "Thank you...for everything!"

    I cannot recommend Ramble Creek Events Center enough!

    Ramble Creek Vineyards is the quintessential wedding venue that has a look and feel about it that captures the heart and soul of the couple. Esthetically, it is one of the most beautiful structures I have seen and photographed for a wedding day. Custom and purpose built to house weddings, they did a fantastic job in making the venue optimal for a photographer. The property is beautiful and the owners really do a fantastic job at accommodating their couples and wedding professionals. It is no surprise to me that they are one of Tennessee's top wedding venues in just their second year of operation. If you are looking for an amazing venue for your wedding day, look no further. Give them a call and book your date early...then give me a call because I love to work at this venue!

    Ramble Creek is one of the most thought out, meticulously built wedding venues I have ever had the pleasure of shooting in. I photographed the first wedding at this gorgeous venue and I was completely in awe of how beautiful every inch of the space and property is. Nestled halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga on a secluded woodland acreage, this is the perfect venue for the bride who wants an effortlessly beautiful venue that hardly needs any decorating. It's perfect for couples who want an intimate but classy wedding. If you're considering Ramble Creek but just aren't sure, I can assure you from a wedding photographer's standpoint that Ramble Creek is worth every penny. I've had the opportunity to photograph twice there now and although I'm moving my business to Colorado, I would be thrilled to come back to Tennessee to photograph at what is without a doubt, one of my favorite wedding venues in Southeast Tennessee. Ramble Creek is everything I want in a venue as a wedding photographer.

And to top it off, the owners are such a joy to work with. If you are planning a wedding, be sure to check this place out, it is amazing!
