One of the most historically beautiful places to get married in Tennessee is the Hermitage Plantation. It is the home of President Andrew Jackson, and is 1000 acres wide. As beautiful as the mansion is, we have found that brides love to get married in the gardens.

These gardens would be the perfect location for a wedding ceremony, don’t you think? The gardens were designed in 1819 by English gardener, William Frost. You can read more about the history of these beautiful gardens on the Hermitage Plantation website.
There are a few other locations at Hermitage Plantation for you to choose to have your ceremony and reception in addition to the gardens. The Cabin by the Spring is a beautifully rustic cabin that offers a more country chic feel to ceremonies and receptions than the other venues in the plantation. It has a maximum capacity of 300, allowing for all of your friends and family to gather together on your special day.
Tulip Grove Mansion provides an entirely different feel and setting for ceremonies and receptions with its Grecian style structure. It is perfect for a couple who is looking for an elegant and regal space to get married. Have your ceremony in the mansion, ask guests to gather outside for cocktail hour, and then invite them back inside for your reception to enjoy dinner and dancing!
The plantation also holds the Hermitage Church, perfect for couples (like Jessica!) who have always dreamed of getting married in a church. Hold your ceremony in the church, and then choose from one of the other locations to host your reception! We think that would be a beautiful combination. If you are interested in any of the above venue options, we highly suggest reading more about the Hermitage Plantation venue spaces to get a sense of everything included with each venue.
Have y’all ever been to the Hermitage Plantation? Don’t you agree that it would be a lovely setting for a wedding?
