New Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina Wedding Venues from Guest Blogger Lara Casey

June 19, 2008 | editorial team

Following in the footsteps of our last post about new Seattle area wedding venues, today brings us fabulous wedding location finds in Tenessee, Georgia and North Carolina from guest blogger Lara Casey. Lara is the Publisher of Southern Wedding Style Magazine, a long time event planner with Bliss Event Group and a recent bride herself, which makes her a true expert in all things wedding! We are thrilled to have her valuable insight into wedding possibilities in her area of the country and we just love reading what she has to say

A few of our recent favorites:

A Bryan Photography
Blackberry Farm, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. One of our favorite photographers, A Bryan Photography, recently shot a fabulous wedding we are about to feature there. They do very few weddings at Blackberry Farm each year (typically 1 or 2…sometimes 3) so although it has been around for awhile as a resort and hotel, they just finished their new reception hall and this wedding was the first to be hosted there.


A Bryan Photography
Sea Island, Georgia, another location we love. They just finished an enormous renovation of the main hotel, The Cloister, which has created an incredible venue and setting. A Bryan Photography shot this wedding there in the fall.


Woodward and Rick Photographers
My favorite, Claxton Farm in Weaverville, North Carolina. Converted into an event space in the last decade, this is one of my favorite wedding locations! The 100-year-old tobacco barn is so versatile. Ive seen several weddings here lately that show the versatility of the space. This wedding, shot by Woodward and Rick Photographers, used every element of the farm in a richly colorful modern way. Gorgeous! See our original Southern Wedding Style blog post here.

Thanks so much Lara!

  2. I just got married at Claxton Farm on June 12th! It was so beautiful we couldn’t have had a more beautiful or perfect wedding. It was so handcrafted and so us. I am happy to see my venue on here!
