Amazing wedding venues that offer a back story

A wedding venue that has a back story? How about an abandoned quarry, an antebellum home filled with history, a working farm and a tiny island in the middle of Arrington? These event spaces are fabulous and unique–just what you want for your special day.

Graystone Quarry
With 76 acres of private space, this once abandoned rock quarry is now a stunning wedding venue. Graystone Quarry was originally used as the limestone source for Interstate 65 from Columbia, giving the venue a touch of Middle Tennessee history. For more information go to Graystone Quarry.


Homestead Manor 
Listed on the Historic Registry, Homestead Manor offers antebellum charm for weddings. The Manor was the site of The Battle of Thompson Station and history is steeped into every room. The property also features beautiful gardens and old oak trees for outdoor wedding while the  Barn at Homestead Manor, with stacked stone fireplace and  massive chandelier offers indoor space for wedding festivities as well. For information visit Homestead Manor.


Sycamore Farms
Yes, they have an event barn. But the cool option for a smaller ceremony is the island waterfall setting  behind the barn. Of course, Sycamore Farms offers a spacious event barn, 28 acres for photo opportunities and a 100 year old Sycamore tree that is the namesake of the property. For information, visit Sycamore Farms.


Ravenwood Mansion
In March of 1821, James Hazard Wilson II married his cousin Emeline Wilson.  Prominent Tennessee and Texas historical figure Sam Houston served as the best man at his wedding.  James and Emeline would settle in Brentwood and build their home in 1825.  The home was christened Ravenswood in honor of their friend Sam Houston whose Cherokee Indian name was “the Raven”, most likely due to the jet black hair of his youth.  Ravenswood is also on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Barn at Allenbrooke Farms
A true working farm, Allenbrooke is a 70-acre certified organic working farm. (They feed several hundred families through their CSA and supply local restaurants with organic offerings.) The farm setting is now home to a beautiful event venue, The Barn at Allenbrooke Farms surrounded by a bucolic working farm. For more information, visit Allenbrooke Farms.
