A Rustic Mountain Wedding at the Barn at Chestnut Springs in Sevierville, Tennessee

Lace, burlap, pearls, hydrangeas and sweet tea—what more could you ask for in a Southern wedding? Katharine Penny (22 and a pastry supervisor) and Marc Menasian (32 and a technology coordinator) wanted just that: a sweetly Southern celebration with their 75 of their closest loved ones. Situated in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the Barn at Chestnut Springs in Sevierville, Tennessee, is a picturesque venue with a rustic barn and cute outdoor patio surrounded by greenery. It felt totally Tennessee, which is why it was the perfect laid-back setting for Katharine and Marc’s intimate celebration. Their ceremony took place outside on a cute patio surrounded by green hills and bistro lights, where Katharine and Marc said “I do” with a wedding arch backdrop covered in lush florals by LB Floral. After, guests mingled at the cocktail hour, which included classic sweet tea (because Katharine knows you can’t have a Southern wedding without it) and strawberry lemonade, a refreshing nod to strawberry season. After dinner in the barn, guests played yard games and enjoyed a s’mores bar around the outdoor fireplace. Katharine and Marc’s favorite part?
