Situated on 110 acres of rolling meadows, Castleton Farms is home to a Greek Revival Antebellum Manor surrounded by the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. The Manor was modeled after the historic Houmas House in New Orleans, a Civil War Plantation . Its stately architecture makes it one of the South’s most sought-after wedding venues. A twelve-foot, four-tiered Palazzo fountain completes the atmosphere of a by-gone era with a circular driveway. The outdoor features at Castleton Farms are as incredible as the main house itself. The back of The Manor opens onto a lawn with the most stunning landscape of any wedding venue in East Tennessee.

The Armstrong-Lockett House built in 1834 just west of downtown Knoxville, this southern antebellum home was once the centerpiece of a 600 acre working farm and is named for its prominent setting overlooking a majestic crescent bend in the Tennessee River. Meticulously restored in 1977, Crescent Bend is furnished with Eighteenth Century antique furniture, decorative arts, and an outstanding collection of English silver, circa 1569-1830. The Manicured formal Italian Gardens includes nine terraces and five fountains, providing an open air setting of magnolia blossoms, roses, and thousands of colorful blooming flowers.
There are four settings for wedding ceremonies at Crescent Bend House & Gardens: the Convexi Holly Maze Garden, the Roman Fountain level, the River Garden Terrace, and the River Lawn. Tents can be set up on the second and third terraces for a beautiful reception overlooking the gardens and tennessee river.
With its urban feel, huge skylights, exposed brick and more than 10,000 square feet of usable space, The Standard is a beautiful and unique event space in Knoxville. Originally built in 1930 for manufacturing, 416 West Jackson Avenue once housed the building’s namesake, the Standard Wilson Glass Company. In 2011, Dewhirst Properties purchased the buildings and began extensive historic renovations. Today, The Standard features an original wood staircase, copper storefronts, exposed brick walls, arched doorways and much of the original trim detail—making the space perfect for weddings, galas, parties, receptions and so much more.
Known formerly as the St. Oliver, with its eclectic style and long term movie and rock star guests, in 2011, the 1876 building was renovated, re-envisioned as The Oliver Hotel.
Located in the heart of Knoxville on Market Square, The Oliver is an original expression of the city, celebrating its city atmosphere with chic, clean, Southern designs that pay subtle homage to the location's rich local culture.
