One of Franklin’s most beautiful and historic wedding venues is Carnton Plantation. Although it is not in Nashville, it is a very close drive! Carnton Plantation was built by mayor Randal McGavock in 1826, and soon became a well established farm in Williamson County. It also served as a hospital during the Civil war to hundreds of soldiers, and therefore became listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today, Carton Plantation is a beautiful place for couples to get married! You have plenty of options for your ceremony and reception. Many couples choose to have a garden ceremony followed by a cocktail hour on the back porch and reception in either the Fleming Center, the patio of the Fleming Center or a garden area reception. Visit their website to see all of the wedding day options.
We also love this cheerful wedding that was featured on Southern Weddings! The pops of yellow and turquoise are so happy and really convey the emotions that should be celebrated during a wedding!
