Our dream was to build a wedding venue unlike any other.

Over a decade ago, our desire to build one of the most beautiful Tennessee wedding locations began with the purchase of 400 acres of gorgeous rolling countryside. Since then, we’ve carefully expanded our property to include six lodge rooms and over six ceremony sites, including our renowned private island.

A farmhouse aesthetic with rustic touches.

The paradise-like setting of our Springville, Tennessee wedding venue includes vast outdoor areas and exquisite indoor spaces with multiple ceremony and reception sites, elegantly furnished bridal and grooms suites, and cutting-edge overnight accommodations.

Allow the panoramic views of nature, warm hospitality, and beautiful interior spaces to provide the setting for your ideal wedding.

Sandy Creek spans 400 acres of beautiful rolling hills, lakes, streams, and pine forests, offering plenty to explore and do. We take pleasure in keeping our event activities with the property’s magnificent natural beauty in balance. To complement the indigenous ecosystem, structures and vegetation have been installed to blend in.

On the property, we have over 10 miles of walking and hiking trails and gravel roads. While you’re out for a stroll, you may notice that the region is full of amazing wildlife to look at. Trails range from flat and smooth to hilly and marshy. To assist you to cross water and marshes, there are bridges and boardwalks.

Top Nashville Wedding Venue and TN Wedding Venues FAQs

Here are some FAQs that many wedding couples ask as they begin their search for Nashville wedding venues. We hope to answer some of these for you and help your planning be easier!

Where can I find small Nashville wedding venues?

Small wedding venues don’t necessarily mean cheap wedding venues. If you want a smaller wedding, you can host an elopement or small wedding at Sandy Creek Farms. A great way to save money on your Nashville TN wedding is to keep your guest list short. Most wedding venues in Nashville can host smaller weddings and elopements.

How can I find places for outdoor weddings in Nashville?

If you want to have your wedding outside, look for a place with an outdoor space. Most of the barn weddings have outdoor spaces, and so do country clubs.

You can look for weddings in your area with Google. You can do this today and start planning your wedding day!

Here are some tips for selecting your dream Nashville TN wedding venue.

If you are looking for the perfect place to host your wedding in Tennessee, there are many versatile event spaces and wedding venues in Nashville that could be just what you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking in downtown Nashville or all across Tennessee, you won’t be short of options.

Once you decide on a location (or a few), you can do site tours or find website information with details about wedding venues in middle Tennessee and Nashville, Tennessee. Many flexible event space options in Nashville now offer all-inclusive wedding packages.

See what the venue offers by reaching out to better understand what you’re getting. Pricing isn’t everything as some venues offer a lower price, but tack on fees later that add up.

Whether you’re having a wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower at your wedding location, you’ll have a variety of alternatives to choose from.

In Nashville, some of the most spectacular wedding celebrations have been held in a grand ballroom, banquet halls, and other event venue options that are conveniently located near the city center.

Was an island wedding (such as Sandy Creek Farms) on your radar? Probably not! Many brides come from across the country to host destination weddings at Sandy Creek Farms.

There are many beautiful venue styles to choose from. It’s not easy to choose the right place.

Budget and capacity are two key factors to consider when selecting Tennessee wedding locations. You’ll want to make sure your wedding location has enough area for the number of guests you expect.

Amenities for event planning: Do you need an event planner or external vendors?

A wedding reception space can hold up to 500 people, while some can accommodate only a hundred guests. If you’re not careful, Nashville wedding venues may be extremely costly. It helps to have an event planner to reduce the cost, but we don’t require one at Sandy Creek Farms. We are also BYO vendors but include an all-inclusive package if you’d rather have us choose our handpicked vendors to take care of your big day.

Consider alternative locations in Tennessee that allow outside vendors, such as bartending services, so you may manage how much money you spend on specific aspects of your wedding. Psst…Sandy Creek Farms is BYO vendors!

We hope this helps you narrow down your wedding venue search. Best of luck :)
