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.
