Make your wedding go down in history
Carnton has been a gathering place for ladies and gentlemen over the last two centuries. Now, the history of Carnton has been memorialized in the best-selling novel The Widow of the South. Make your wedding a part of our tradition as you say your vows under the one hundred sixty-year-old Osage Orange tree in our restored antebellum garden.
Whether you’ve dreamed of a rustic outdoor setting or want more modern amenities, one of our reception locations will complete your vision. To treat your guests to a true back-in-time experience, we will open the 1826 McGavock family home and invite them inside for a walk-through tour and glimpse into the history of Tennessee.
If you would like to set up a time to view the property and set your date, please contact:
