    My fiancé and I have booked our winter wedding with The Barn Event Center of the Smokies and I couldn't be more excited that we chose this venue to make our day PERFECT! My wedding day isn't here yet but with as helpful as they have been, I know my special day will be AMAZING! They have been so wonderful! From just inquiring about venue to booking with them, it has been great! They have been super responsive and answered any and all my questions that I have had! I recommend this venue to anyone! The Barn is absolutely stunning! I cant wait for January to get here!

    Beautiful Venue and Amazing Staff

    The Barn Event Center of the Smokies was great to work with. They were very responsive and accommodating. Andrea helped us via email and phone as we planned our wedding from afar. We did not see the venue until a few days before our big day and the photos that we had seen didn't do it justice. Lisa was our wedding director and was FANTASTIC! She seriously made the last minute planning and set up so easy. She helped us tremendously, especially with the small details that really mean a lot in the end. The kitchen/catering staff were wonderful. They did a great job making our wedding ceremony and reception look beautiful as well as making delicious food that received many compliments. The positive feedback we received from our guests, in regards to the venue and food, for days after our wedding is a testament to how great the Barn Event Center of the Smokies really is.

    The Barn is an absolutely beautiful venue inside and out. The property is clean, perfectly landscaped, and has stunning views. It’s gives a romantic, rustic, and very elegant setting. The lights and decor is perfect. It made me a proud mother for my daughter to get to have her dream wedding at such a wonderful location. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional. The food was excellent! I’m glad we have beautiful pictures to enjoy for a lifetime. We will also hold the beautiful memories made for a lifetime. The Barn and staff made that possible. Thank you again for a beautiful venue and wonderful service.

    We had our wedding at the Barn Event Center, and it was the perfect place for our event. The outside space for the ceremony was beautiful, and the inside space for the reception was exactly what we wanted. They were willing to let us wait until the day of to call if we wanted to move it inside due to weather. This was vital since the weather report was saying 80% chance of rain until the morning of our wedding. The staff was very courteous, and Lisa was absolutely the best! She helped us out with all the logistics and made sure the event went seamlessly. They also helped us with a van to transport our guests back and forth to the hotel, so our guests could fully enjoy the evening.

    My husband and I got married here on May 5 and it could not have been any better! All of the staff were amazing! Everything went smooth from the moment we toured the place until we left after the ceremony! The food was great! Our decorations and flowers were beautiful! We got many many compliments on everything. I would recommend the Barn Event Center of the Smokies and all of their staff to everyone!! I could not have been any less stressed and who doesn’t want that for their wedding!! There was one little mishap with the food for children and it was taken care of immediately and so smoothly that absolutely nobody ever even knew there was a minor issue. Honestly, I can’t recommend this place and people enough!!

    Absolutely the BEST. We could not have picked a better location for our wedding. The Barn Event Center staff treats you as part of the family. Very professional, accommodating, friendly, and most of all fun. From the excellent chef (Love the pasta and veggies), to the loving friendly "feel like family" owners, to Andrea who is the perfect guide, to Felicia the banquet manager - we always felt as if we were a priority. The day of staff made things go smoothly, they were beyond kind/nice, and our day would not have been a success or special without them. I can only give 5 stars, but they deserve 100! And the cost is WELL worth it - for ~ 90 people (inc. kids) our entire food/venue/labor bill was jut at $6K!

    We recently had our December wedding and rehearsal dinner at the Barn Event Center. Everything was just wonderful, it was a dream come true! The food was delicious, and flowers/decorations beautiful- exactly what I had in mind. Everyone worked so hard to make sure our day turned out perfect- anything you need they will take care of! Throughout the entire planning process communication was so easy, even with me living in another state. This was really such a wonderful experience and I thank the entire staff very much.

    The Barn was AMAZING! We planned this wedding out of state and not once did I stress over anything. They made it SO EASY! From contacting me right away when I showed interest, to helping me make decisions, and being so accommodating, the barn is the place to have your wedding! We were given many compliments all night of how beautiful of a venue and wedding it was. It wouldn't have been that way without Andrea and Lisa! If I could do it all over again, we wouldn't change a single thing! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    My amazing husband and I got married about 2 weeks ago on June 29th, and it was absolutely perfect. Everyone in the staff is so caring and nice! Andrea did amazing with our flower decor. Lisa and Felica did amazing coordinating the big day. We couldnt have asked for a more perfect day! The food was absolutely amazing, and they give you left overs to take home! Another thing we loved is the Barn is so automaticlly beautiful that you do not need to by a bunch of different decor, they have so much to choose from! If you want a venue that truly cares about your big day, this is the one to choose. Thank you for making our wedding day so amazing!

    I cannot say enough amazing things about this place. We got married in June of 2017 and every single person we interacted with at this venue from start to finish was fantastic. They saw our dream and ran with it. It was everything I could have ever hoped for and then some. If something did not go perfect the day of the wedding, no one would have known. The wedding coordinator was on top of absolutely everything, people still about talk how good the food was, and my flowers were out of this world! I would recommend this venue to everybody.

    From the moment we first contacted this venue, we have felt a sense of comfort. Absolutely everyone we met throughout the process of planning our wedding was amazing.

    Felicia set up the venue for our wedding and it truly was beautiful. It was absolutely everything that we had envisioned plus much more. She did such an amazing job. She was constantly making sure we had everything we needed during the reception. The food is FANTASTIC! Our guests were raving about how great dinner was for days. (We had pulled BBQ, potato salad, mac n cheese, and salad)

    If you are considering this venue, go take a look! You will fall in love with the uniqueness and the rustic vibe, with a very elegant look.

    The Barn Event Center was such a beautiful place to get married at. The place was already so beautifully decorated, we hardly had to do anything else. The staff is very helpful and professional. They made us feel right at home. Oh, and by the way, the food was delicious (from what I heard...I was a little preoccupied). The scenery is gorgeous, and I loved that nearly everything was already on site. We just had to show up!

    I got married on December 10, 2016 at The Barn Event Center & it was magical. Everyone was friendly. The folks at the Barn Event Center are a joy to work with! They are very nice and genuine people. I couldn't ask for a more perfect day! Plus, the food is fantastic. I surely enjoyed my winter wonderland wedding! I recommend this gem to any couple looking for a rustic elegant view near the mountains.

    I would highly recommend The Barn Event Center. My son and his wife had their wedding and reception at The Barn. I can't save enough good things about the food, the chefs, the staff, the coordinators. I am usually highly critical and can always find something that didn't go quite right. In the case of our son's wedding, I am unable to find a single thing that could be considered a negative. Everything about their day was absolutely perfect! There was nothing to worry about because The Barn's staff was taking care of everything!

    Start early and talk to Andrea at the Barn. She has wonderful ideas, pictures and can give you the best of her experiences.
    Make lists and keep communicating with the Barn. They know what works best with your ideas and they can share that knowledge with you. Be assured that all the staff at the Barn are helpful and friendly and very professional. Our son's wedding could not have been better. Plus, their food is wonderful!

    The Barn Event Center of the Smokies is THE BEST place ever for your dream wedding! Everyone is so kind, helpful, caring, and nice. They truly went out of there way to make sure we were all taken care of. We rented the venue for the ceremony and reception. We had them cater our food and do our flowers. The venue is BEAUTIFUL inside and out. The food was AMAZING and our flowers turned out BEAUTIFUL. We also had Marilyn and Lisa to coordinate and just to get everything done and together. They are AMAZING. Anything they could do to make it less stressful on us, they wanted to do it. The day of our wedding was so easy because everyone there was doing there part in whatever needed to be done for our day. They made it simple and so easy for us to enjoy our day as every bride and groom should do. The whole crew is simply AMAZING and we are so thankful we shared our day with The Barn Event Center of the Smokies! :)

    I was very pleased with the staff and location of this venue. They made sure that the wedding party and family had everything they needed. It was so much better than I could have ever expected! Marilyn was a huge help when it came to decorating and getting me and my bridesmaids down the aisle at the right time. I could not have pictured things going any smoother and simpler than they did. The staff helped relieve any stress and were so kind. I had someone asking me almost every 10 minutes if they could get me anything or if I needed them to do anything.
    The Barn also provided the catering and the food was delicious! It was the best barbecue and mac-n-cheese I have had in a long time! I also had many friends and family saying how great the food was.
    I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for Andrea and Marilyn and how easy and wonderful they made our big day! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone wanting a rustic/barn theme for their wedding.

    The Barn exceeded all my expectations! I cannot say enough good things about the location and staff. Since we are from out of town, we truly did not know what to expect. The staff made everything run smoothly. They had everything set up beautifully and made it easy on this Mother of the Bride. Andrea did an excellent job on our flowers. We were looking for the "WOW" factor and she more than delivered. The flowers were gorgeous. We all know wedding food is usually just okay, but the food at the rehearsal dinner was exceptional. Our guests complimented the food over and over. It is a beautiful venue in itself, but the extra details the Barn Staff added made everything wonderful and helped us enjoy this special time. As I look back on my daughter's special day, it couldn't have turned out nicer or run any smoother than it did. I give the credit to the Barn Event staff. They were so professtional in everyway. If you are looking for that special place to have a wedding or a reheasal dinner, I cannot recommend The Barn Event Center of the Smokies. They made everything wonderful

    Many of our guests were very complimentary of the decor, the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the food....this venue provided us with everything we could ask for and more. They truly exceeded our expectations! There are so many beautifully restored antique carriages, a beautiful natural looking waterfall, and the carefully crafted wood interior gave such a warm glow to all of our pictures. I would recommend this venue with absolutely no hesitation to anyone looking for a charming place to set off one of the most momentous occasions of your lives.
