Such a wonderful and gorgeous place! I couldn't have been more impressed with the staff, the food, the flowers and the decorations. They did everything and it was first class. When I asked for something, they went above and beyond what was asked of them. So pleased!Sent on 03/24/2015

Our daughter just had her wedding and reception at the Barn Event Ctr of the Smokies and we were so thrilled with the outcome! They were professional from start to finish! The event manager, Andrea, gave us direction with lists of recommended vendors including cake bakeries, photographers, florists, dj, wedding coordinators, and even officiants. The facility is beautiful and the service impeccable! Each desire of the couple was listened to and suggestions were made to work with our budget and number of guests. We had a wonderful buffet dinner for 110 people that was complimented by all! Highly recommend!Sent on 03/29/2019

The PERFECT Venue for my Winter Wedding
My husband and I got married at the barn on January 20th and we couldn't be happier than how it turned out. We added Lisa on as our wedding director and she was fantastic! She made sure everything was perfect and just how we wanted it. The food was delicious, and everyone else on the Barn staff treated us very well!!Sent on 02/06/2019
