About

Up to 200 guests

The Ivey House is a historic wedding venue located in Seymour, Tennessee. Originally built in 1886, the pristine white farmhouse was foreclosed during the Great Depression before it was purchased by the Riggs family. Their daughter, Lovana, married Charles Ivey in the front parlor in 1948, and lived there until 2018. Now owned by husband-and-wife team Dustin and Colleen, the house is a charming and secluded spot set on lush green lawns. Situated just thirty miles from Knoxville and Gatlinburg, the estate combines the best of rural tranquility with the ease of urban proximity. Featuring a natural spring, corn crib, the unparalleled views of the Great Smoky Mountains, this venue is an idyllic setting for all celebrations of love.

Facilities and Capacity
The Ivey House offers a number of indoor and outdoor locations to hold ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions. The parlor provides an intimate space for small soirees of up to 20 guests, while a larger room can accommodate up to 40. For grander affairs, the grounds feature numerous places to exchange vows, including a gravel area with a forest backdrop. The pi猫ce de r茅sistance of the property is the 40x60-foot wooden pavilion, which boasts covered concrete floors, exposed beams, draping fabrics, and string lights. This atmospheric pavilion can host 150 for both ceremonies and receptions, can be fully enclosed or open-air, and supplies breathtaking views of the mountains. Back inside, two luxurious get-ready suites are available for couples to prepare for the festivities with their wedding parties. Tastefully appointed with vintage furniture and antique vanities, these suites are the epitome of Southern charm and comfort.

Services Offered
For those interested in renting The Ivey House, a wedding coordinator and three event packages are available. The weekend package gives couples exclusive access to the property from Friday to Saturday and includes overnight accommodations in the house on Friday night. The most popular Daily option comes with up to 12 hours of event time plus one hour of rehearsal. The micro-wedding package is best suited for soon-to-be-newlyweds hosting smaller nuptials, and includes 6 hours of usage. Tables and chairs, retro d茅cor and furniture, a wooden arbor, and use of the fully-equipped kitchen are available with all bookings. The venue also provides a list of trusted local vendors that offer everything from floral arrangements to catering to entertainment services.

    Wedding Dreams come true.

    If you are looking for a simple, elegant, historic farmhouse, low country rustic wedding venue, this is the place. The moment you step onto the property you can feel the history. There is a peace and calmness in this location. The owners, Colleen and Dustin are some of the most genuine, humble, honest, kind people you will ever meet. Wedding planning will feel like you are planning a wedding with your very best friend. I will forever cherish the relationship that was built with Colleen and Dustin while planning my wedding. Even though we had some hard decisions to make because of uncontrollable circumstances like rain. I would not want or trust anyone else to have made this day as perfect and as special as it was. I will forever and always recommend the Ivey House not just for weddings but for any event. The space is absolutely perfect and they keep adding things that just simply take your breath away. I never knew how much better it could get and they always blow me away with each new thing. I continue to fall in love every again every time I visit and every time I look at my wedding photos. This place is definitely a dream come true.
