Our delighted newlyweds and their families say...


 

We had our ceremony and reception at Carnton in April 2017, and what a magical setting it was! Jayde and the vendor teams that work with Carnton are the absolute best! Jayde went above and beyond to make sure my meticulous details came to life. Finding a historical venue where we could take our children and show them where we got married was super important to us, and there are few places with more history in Franklin than Carnton. So many guests commented how the setting made for one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever attended. We opened the house for tours during cocktail hour, which I definitely recommend. We live down the road from Carnton, and every time we drive by it puts a smile on our face!  – Stacey, married April 2017

There are seriously not enough words to describe how AMAZING it was to work with Jayde and the entire Carnton team for my wedding day! Being an event planner from San Diego, who chose to have a destination wedding, meant I would be planning from 2,000+ miles away! Well, even with all the miles between us, Jayde made us feel right at home and helped with every little detail! 

There is truly no doubt in my mind that our wedding would not have been half as beautiful or fun without the venue and Jayde! With Hurricane Harvey bringing in lots of rain and storms we were incredibly stressed about potential flooding at the venue and our COMPLETELY outdoor wedding being called off. However, Jayde never seemed to worry and always kept us calm, and I am happy to say that we woke up on the day of our wedding to sunshine and gorgeous weather!

Honestly, no review can do this venue and their amazing team justice. My only advice is to go see the venue in person, have a cup of tea/coffee with Jayde, and let the venue and Jayde show you that southern hospitality and grace are not dead! They are living on strong at the Carnotn Plantation!  – Kayla, married September 2018

When we first looked at Carnton Plantation for our wedding, we instantly knew that was where we wanted to get married. It is absolutely stunning! We married under the Osage Orange tree in the garden and had the reception on the back porch of the Fleming Center. We opened the Mansion for our guests to tour and they loved it! Carnton has such a rich history and our guests loved learning more about the Plantation. We worked with Brittany throughout the planning process and she is the sweetest! She was very helpful in answering any questions and making suggestions.

The venue speaks for itself. It is absolutely gorgeous! Getting married under the big Osage tree is so memorable and saturated with history. The gardens are kept up beautifully and a great place for photo ops! Meagan the event planner that you can hire with the venue is amazing! She made sure every detail was addressed and carried out. Everyone was so great to work with and the tours of the house for our wedding guests was a nice added touch. Simply beautiful as a venue!

My daughter and her fiance chose Carnton Plantation as the setting for their wedding this summer. It was a beautiful venue and Megan and Morgan were very helpful and patient as we worked through all the phases of planning. As the mother of the bride I can’t overstate how important that was in easing my stress and allowing me to enjoy this happy occasion. Their vendor list was extremely helpful and from it we were able to pull together a wonderful and memorable ceremony and reception. Our guests, many from out of town, enjoyed the festivities, including the tour of the house. One of our guests, an event planner herself, said it was one of the most beautiful weddings she had attended—every detail was seen to. The greatest praise of all came from the bride and groom themselves and their obvious enjoyment of their wedding day.

This venue is absolutely amazing. They do so many weddings here and everything on the wedding day goes so smoothly. Meagan (planner at Carnton) is amazing and I feel like i walked away with a friend!

If you are looking for a BEAUTIFUL outside wedding location, Carnton is the place to be.

Meagan, I just wanted to let you know how great it was to work with you last Saturday for Ashley and Lucien’s wedding! You are very organized and easy going, so in return it definitely made our job much easier! I can tell you, there are many other wedding coordinators that don’t even send out a timeline!

The venue was perfect! The land is vast and beautiful and the staff were so helpful and nice. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue and the staff made the process enjoyable and stress free.

The Carnton Plantation was the first and ONLY venue we considered for our wedding. We fell in love with it’s charm and felt it represented who we were perfectly. At first, we were concerned about having to book all the elements (lighting, tents, catering, etc) separately but the staff was so helpful, it made it pretty easy. We opted to use the Carnton’s wedding planner, Meagan Wuest, who was easily worth twice what we paid for her services as she was so incredibly helpful and easy to work with. The day was my dream come true and so many of our guests commented on how perfect of a location it was for a wedding.

I worked with Meagan from nearly 800 miles away . She was a joy to work with and the wedding and reception were flawless!!
— Mother of the Bride
Thanks for the work Meagan, we had a blast! Thanks for all that you do, I know it is a lot to get all of those people coordinated. Job well done.

My husband and I got married at the Carnton Plantation this past August and I cannot say enough positive things about this venue. The event coordinator on site and her assistants (as well as the whole staff) were absolutely fabulous from the beginning to the end. The garden was a breathtaking spot for our ceremony to take place and the Fleming Center and the patio behind it was the perfect place for the reception. Our guests were very impressed with the property as well and several went back to take the official tour. The Carnton Plantation served as the PERFECT place for us to say our vows and the pictures are just beautiful to look back on. We are looking forward to visiting The Carnton Plantation for years to come!!!
