Rustic weddings are perfect for the right couple.

Rustic, without being certifiably redneck, is the hip wedding theme these days. Because rustic is so hip, even the most urban city girl is choosing to plan a wedding that rocks burlap table runners, mason jars, and chalkboard-type signage.

There are many choices to consider when choosing your wedding venue. In Tennessee, of course, we have no coastline on which to have a beautiful beach wedding. We do, however, have unlimited access to the outdoors and rolling hills along with a deep history. In fact, Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock at Blackberry Farms, near Knoxville, where all the upper echelon get married. (The rooms average $3,300 per night, give or take.) 

However, we have absolutely breathtaking locations closer home. One of those is The Readyville Mill, in Readyville, Tennessee. Owners Tomm and Karen Ford have created a lovely space for your wedding. Karen previously owned The Front Porch Café and Goodness Gracious Café. If you miss the chicken puffs from Goodness Gracious, you can get one at The Readyville Mill’s Goodness Gracious Café; it is the same chicken puff. (I am a huge fan of the chicken puff, as you can tell.)

We also have FiveSense Farm near Murfreesboro. FiveSense Farm has been making a name for itself in our area over the past few years. You can find its homegrown food items at Murfreesboro’s Saturday Market during the summer months and at the ever-popular restaurant for those dining patrons with higher standards, FiveSenses. The best way to check out these fabulous locations is to contact them via their websites or have your wedding coordinator, such as Hype Events – whom we highly recommend, schedule a time for you to view the event locations. Your wedding day possibilities are limitless.

Look forward to our next blog about planning a destination wedding in New Orleans.

Choose joy, always.
