Barn Wedding Venue in The Smoky Mountains


The old addage about rain bringing luck to a couple on their wedding day? We know this will be true for Audra and Cory as their gorgeous rustic wedding, photographed by one of our favorites Erin Morrison Photography, was celebrated with just a few rain drops, but full of sweet smiles and newlywed bliss! We were initially struck by the stunning florals by Megan Connors Floral Styling in a sea of color including bright pops of coral, lavender, peach, and blush... what more could a mountain-loving-couple who with a rustic, eclectic style want?! In an effort to keep to the budget and not break the bank, this couple and their generous family planned lots of fun details but really utlizing the decor provided by The Barn at Chestnut Springs. From a misty wedding day to a calm and serene evening with beautiful lights overhead, Audra and Cory danced their way into their new titles of husband and wife...

From Erin Morrison Photography: "The weather this wedding season has been a tug-o-war with the weather. Rain. Then sun. Heat. Then cold. Audra and Cory's spring wedding day brought rain, but this super bubbly wedded couple was not going to let it damper their good time. I had a hard time not smiling at they twirled, danced, and smooched their way through their intimate wedding day. And look at all these amazing floral details from Megan Connors Floral and Styling: full, colorful bouquets, wedding arbors, and boutonnieres. I mean, how cute is this destination wedding at The Barn at Chestnut Springs?!"

Event Date: June 5, 2017 

Event Location: Sevierville, TN

How did you two meet?

We met in Cleveland, Ohio. We both rented lofts in the same building downtown and our paths crossed one sunny Friday afternoon. We started chatting and before we knew it, we were sipping wine overlooking Lake Erie and soon became inseparable!

How did Cory Propose?

I took Cory to visit a city that is near and dear to my heart, New Orleans. As we strolled through Jackson Square experiencing all of the sites, he popped the question!  

Tell us a little bit about your wedding

We wanted a very warm and welcoming wedding. The barn setting was just perfect and gave the perfect stage for a rustic Barn wedding.

What were your favorite parts of the day?

Because we chose to have a more intimate wedding, we were able to spend time celebrating with all of our guests.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

We wanted to have a beautiful wedding, but keep it simple and not break the bank. The barn provided so many beautiful decorations and with the added splash of color from our eclectic flowers.

Tell us about your wedding cake?

We skipped the cake and had peach cobbler! I mean, we were eating BBQ in a barn, it was fitting.

What did you do for favors?

My mother ordered adorable handmade soups of different flavors.

Did you include any family heirlooms or traditions?

My jewelry, necklace and earrings, were family heirlooms of one of my bridesmaids. It was my "something borrowed" item.

Do You have any advice for couples getting married now?

Don't stress over it! Pick things that are beautiful and invite the people you love.
