FrontPorch Farms has hosted nearly 300 weddings and events including several notables from Lady Antebellum, Kings of Leon, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert just to name a few. Close enough to Nashville but away from the city noises, our venue has become a very popular destination wedding location with couples coming from Canada, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa - just about every state in the US and even a few from England.

Built to reflect the unforgettable charm of the Old South, Front Porch Farms is the perfect backdrop for romance with it's three story antebellum-style house and multiple covered porches overlooking the magnificent views of the countryside. From sunrise to sunset, the picturesque setting through out the 32-acres of rolling green pastures is with out a doubt one of the most coveted places to shoot for many photographers in Nashville (and across the country).

As for the bride & groom, their bridal party and guests, the main house, 4000 square ft pavilion, two guesthouses, pool, pond, gazebos and rustic barn is more than enough amenities to relax and celebrate while our staff handles the details of their event.

Unique activities can include hot air balloon, fireworks, skeet shooting, fishing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boat and hiking - we've even had one couple "ski" off our hillside for their send off (in June no less)! Read less

If you're looking for a venue thats beyond beautiful and an amazing woman who will do anything to make your day special then look no further than Front Porch Farms! I fell in love with this place from the get go, I saw pictures online before I was even engaged, and as soon as I was we went and toured the place immediately! I was only reassured in my adoration for this place. Its absolutely breathtaking, from the grounds to the view to what I've seen can be done with the space. I had to get married here! From the initial meeting with Kathy all the way to the "I do's" I felt at ease about everything. All i had to do was give Kathy my hefty wedding pinterest board and she got to work figuring out and planning everything to be just as I'd imagined. I was able to have fun planning along with her while she handled the stressful parts. I got to go to tastings and pick out colors and play with all my options while she put it all together. When the day of came, everything was amazing. I was in a lala land of all my visions coming to life, it was so beautiful! All of our guests loved everything we put into the wedding to make it special and one to remember, and we have Kathy Best and her team to thank for that! Seriously call Kathy and watch your dream wedding come to life. :)

I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to look back on my wedding day and remember a day that was beautiful, authentic to me and my husband and just flat out fun! Kathy is amazingly talented at creating a day that reflects your personality, style and wedding wishes. My husband and I were able to just RELAX, enjoy our guests and the day. We had multiple guests tell us that it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever seen and the most fun reception they had attended. I would definitely recommend Kathy and Front Porch Farms to any couple looking for a beautiful and unique outdoor venue!

This venue was AMAZING. It was absolutely beautiful and fit the country-chic vibe my husband and I were going for. Kathy and Ashley are very organized and did a fabulous job making sure every detail of the night was planned for and taken care of. When we got to our wedding, all we had to do was show up and enjoy the evening!

Another GREAT perk is that the venue has a ton of decor items including candle holders, stumps, frames, etc, that you can use FOR FREE! They also have nicer items that you can rent including couches, tables, chalkboards, etc. Every need you have, they will take care of it! They also set it all up for you to look super cute for a small fee.

Also, Kathy does an amazing job of referring her brides to really great vendors. She referred me to my florist (Cathy Wilson, who was AWESOME), caterer (Bacon & Caviar - they rocked), and cake maker (B. Jackson's Bakery - so delicious). All of the vendors offered affordable rates and provided excellent service. I really appreciated her help!

Everyone at the venue is incredibly nice and accommodating. This is so refreshing as an overwhelmed bride!

My only comment for future brides is that Front Porch Farms is best suited for a warmer-weather wedding. We had ours in November and it ended up adding a lot of expenses trying to keep the pavilion warm! With Nashville weather being so unpredictable, we were hoping for a warmer weekend, but there ended up being an "artic blast," and we were left spending unforeseen money buying additional heaters and tenting. This really wasn't the venue's fault however, it was more based on our decision to risk a quasi outdoor reception in November.

We also spent a lot of money on busing our guests out to the farm, but as long as you keep these expenses in mind beforehand, it is an absolutely wonderful experience!
