Unique Tennessee Outdoor Wedding Venue in the Great Smoky Mountains
Sampson’s Hollow is an intimate wedding venue on a large farm in the foothills of East Tennessee. The property has been in the same family since the mid-1800s. Our mission statement is based on the principles of traditional marriage. ‘For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Matthew 19: 4-6
We have a genuine heart for service.
We know your wedding day is the most important day of your life, and with every moment spent with our team in planning it, you’ll know that we feel that way about your wedding day, too.
It all starts with a meeting with our coordinators,
When you first step onto the property at Sampson’s Hollow, you will be greeted by your coordinator, and wedding planning will begin. So exciting to think about the adventure of planning your own unique wedding day. And on your wedding day, with a full staff completely dedicated to making your wedding day vision come to life, you can feel confident in knowing that every detail – even the ones you might not have thought about – will be prepared in advance for you, so that you can fully enjoy your wedding day with your new spouse and all the people in your life whom you love.
What does every bride and groom want for their ideal wedding?
This is where our “superpowers” in southern hospitality begin to be revealed. First and foremost, we are inspired by the bride’s dream. Our wedding inspiration comes from our couple, the bride and groom. You will never be left alone to deal with issues that might arise. As soon as you book a more inclusive wedding package, a coordinator will contact you to get started. You will begin to make wedding plans together. She will advise you on locations for your ceremony and advise as you anticipate seating and decorating. She will assist in developing a timeline for your wedding day; ask lots of questions for you to share your vision and design. Our coordinators work diligently to provide a seamless transition for each step of the adventure. Our goal is to be her problem-solver and troubleshooter. The coordinator will be at the rehearsal, and on the day of your wedding, she will be there to set up tables, place linens, and follow through with your personalized choices for the tablescape. She will confirm the vendors providing the services for your package. Finally, you will determine a detailed timeline based on the hours included in your package.
Because of our heart for service, every bride and groom choosing Sampson’s Hollow as their venue will be the center of our attention.
Having a coordinator extends that time without you, your family, or bridal attendants having to plan around getting ready themselves. If the weather is questionable, the coordinator will give you options for your backup plan. And she and her staff will implement them. Your guests will be comfortable, and their needs attended to. There will be staff in the parking areas to assist you in where to park. At this point, your guests will be directed where to go, according to the bride’s preference. We will take care of those who need additional assistance. Our staff will readily transport them in golf carts. If you have a pet at the wedding, we will ensure that it has drinking water and provide it with a treat with your permission. We have staff to assist with almost any aspect of your wedding day. And at the end of the day, you nor your family or friends will have to do the breakdown and clean-up. It will all be taken care of for you. The coordinator and her staff will be your hands, your feet, and anticipate what is needed. These are the benefits of our superpowers to the bride and groom, as well as their families.
The proof is reflected in the opinions expressed in our reviews. Experience the luxury of our southern hospitality.
We love what we do, and we truly do it well.
Our family and staff have been working hard for sixteen years to take care of each and every bride and groom who honor us as their choice of a wedding venue. Our wedding coordinators and most of our experienced professionals have been with us throughout the years of our growth. They have a heart for service and hospitality. And on your wedding day, with a full staff completely dedicated to making your wedding day vision come to life, you can feel confident in knowing that every detail – even the ones you might not have thought about – will be prepared in advance for you, so that you can fully enjoy your wedding day with your new spouse and all the people in your life whom you love.
