Tennessee’s Legacy Farms - One Incredible Wedding Venue, With Unlimited Options
Thursday, September 15, 2011
Just because your wedding venue is a plantation or a farmhouse doesn't mean you are limited to just "country chic" or "rustic" or even "vintage" looks. Especially in a location like Legacy Farms where you can choose from a few different settings both indoors and out to create a look and feel that is right for your wedding. At their recent open house, I had a chance to see each space decorated in a certain fashion from (of course) country style to a fall-inspired table to a gorgeous Winter Wonderland. When Enchanted Florist is involved, you can expect floral and event decor that's nothing short of phenomenal and once again, the guests and I at the Open House were wowed by their imagination and design skills which seem to know no limits.

The covered bridge at Legacy Farms is my personal favorite area. They turned it into a ceremony location with chairs lined up on both sides and flower petals that match the suspended Asian umbrellas strewn on the ground. It's such a fun, festive look but the bridge looks like it could be transformed to be a wonderland of any sort.
Front of the Mansion
What greeted me as I arrived at the venue was a gorgeous fall-inspired ceremony and reception dinner table set up. Rows of wooden pews with an the aisle flanked by pumpkins and leaves faced the house where you could exchange your vows on the front steps. For the dinner, there was a beautiful long table decorated in oranges and yellows. This would be perfect for an October or November wedding or, really, if you're just that into fall and are over summer!
Inside the Mansion
Set by a French window overlooking the front lawn, a long, elegant dinner table was set. Candlesticks, votives, silver chargers and serving pieces sat with shimmery silver ornaments and votives and a luxurious center arrangement of roses and flowers sat atop beautiful linens.
Main Event Hall
The main area (which we've seen set up for a wedding here) was used to accommodate visitors with a live band and buffet. Upstairs, there was more great design to be seen. There were audible gasps of delight as you entered the barn loft upstairs in the main event hall. Upon entry, there was a table set up in a Winter Wonderland theme with sparkly ornaments, cool purples and blues and silk and satin fabric. It was exquisite.
The table was but an extension of the ceremony area around the corner where twinkly lights, frosty tree branches feathers and more floral arrangements completed this Winter Wonderland and if not for the fact that it was in the high 90's outside, it would have felt like we were actually at a winter wedding.
How's this for winter wedding inspiration?
Every usable area at Legacy Farm was decorated - even outside there were antiques set up to show what they have on hand for decor. The courtyard between the Event Hall and the Mansion also had tables set up and tucked away, in a sheltered area, was a country style section. There seemed no limit to the design capabilities of all the vendors involved that day and I'm glad I was able to visit!
