The Sampson’s Hollow team (specifically Janice and Betsy) worked beyond my expectations. From the beginning, they were quick to respond and quicker to help make my wishes and my family’s desires happen. I had many little “fires” throughout my planning, and these ladies were exceptional at handling everything I threw at them! The venue itself is amazing, breath-taking, and completely worth every penny. I could not have asked for a better team or location.


Absolutely amazing place and people! Janice is a miracle worker! Our wedding was falling apart from the begining with people canceling including wedding party and flowers I wanted were out of season etc etc and she made everything PERFECT! It was the best day ever!!! The food was amazing the decorations were beautiful and even though it rained I think I liked the porch better than the glen with the amount of ppl we had show up. EVERYONE was saying how beautiful and perfect it was there and were sooo impressed! Only thing is its a little out there and if you dont pay attention you may pass it by but we didnt mind that and once our guests saw the place neither did they! Also the cabin we stayed in on the property for our honeymoon was unbelievable! Claw foot tub in a huge bathroom and a hot tub on the back porch! It was the best! Love this place and these people and wouldnt have it any other way! I was such a pain bc I was a long distance bride(living in Tx) and Janice and her crew were so patient with me and helpful and Betsy our wedding coordinator was the sweetest lady and she did an awesome job! One word to describe this place would be PERFECT!


I found out about Sampson’s Hollow through a friend. My daughter wanted an outdoor fall wedding . We went to look and were sold on our first visit. We met Lesley and she was so informative. We loved the property! The wedding day was perfect. The staff took care of our every need. It was an extremely hot day and they even sacrificed their own water for the wedding party. My daughter’s wedding was everything she wanted. I would highly recommend Sampson’s Hollow!


Sampson’s Hollow is the most wonderful place in the world. My wedding felt like a fairy tale. They are the best people to work with. They are willing to work with your budget and they truly care about any concerns that you have. They work with you to make your day as special as it can be. Janice Livingston really has a wonderful business there and I would recommend Sampson’s Hollow to any bride that is looking for a story-book wedding.


Sampson’s Hollow was the perfect place to have our wedding. The owners are really nice and helpful with recommending vendors. The place is gorgeous, right near the Smoky Mountains. We could not have asked for a better place to get married.


Last night we went to a wedding rehearsal for a couple of dear friends, Rachael and Chris. My husband is officiating the wedding tonight, and I can’t wait. I love weddings. This one is going to be in the most gorgeous place: Sampson’s Hollow, a farm in Walland, TN that’s owned by a couple in our church, Janice & Bill Livingston. I’ve been to weddings there before, and have always thought it was beautiful, but last night was truly inspired. While waiting on the maid of honor to arrive to the rehearsal, my husband took our girls on a nature walk and left me sitting in a rocking chair on the porch of the reception hall facing the mountains. I could seriously feel my cortisol levels dropping. They have this amazing wind chime that’s very ‘yoga class’ and I felt at peace. I really do love being outside, and my favorite way to enjoy the outdoors is from a comfortable chair with a great view.
