What a fabulous place for any event. And my daughter's wedding was perfect there. Thank you to Kara and Kevin for a perfect wedding, photographs and reception.

I would highly recommend Spring Haven Mansion. It is an absolutely beautiful historic home, perfect for weddings, and the owners make it so easy for everyone to be relaxed and organized and have the wedding of their dreams. They did everything for us! And I wasn't exhausted, enjoyed the wedding and reception, and everything was done right!

This venue is definitely worth considering for a perfect wedding.

Kevin and Cara are AMAZING!!! We had such a beautiful stress free wedding. They take care of practically everything so you don't have to worry and stress on your big day. The mansion is absolutely gorgeous! The weather was perfect that day. Who could ask for more? Kevin was the photographer and he made it so fun. He made us feel so comfortable and would take the genuine action shots of you laughing and having a good time. Our pictures turned out amazing! I have nothing but great things to say about Cara and Kevin and this venue. It is one stop shopping, super convenient and beautifully elegant. Thank you for making our day so perfect!!

In Feb 2012, I became engaged and began the search for a venue. I found a few local venues but as soon as I saw the pictures on Spring Haven's website, my heart leapt and I had such a strong desire to have my wedding there! The pictures are beautiful; so I called the next day to go see it for myself. Even in February, it was a beautiful and interesting place. I immediately knew THAT was MY venue! Cara helped me choose a package that would accommodate my needs and wants. I set my wedding date for Sept 9th, 2012. I stayed in close contact with the Hogans over the following months as I had so many questions. I had never planned a wedding and had no idea where to start! Both Cara and Kevin were extremely helpful all along the way. And, I visited Spring Haven again as my wedding date drew closer just to see how the leaves and trees had changed the scenery (it was even more beautiful).

I highly recommend Spring Haven Mansion. I loved my wedding; everyone commented and raved about how beautiful it is. I had the ceremony on the front lawn, and after the chairs were placed, only did a few things for decor. We decided to spend the bulk of our money on the reception. They let you use other vendors, but have a list of "preferred vendors" whom they normally do business with. We did both - using the preferred vendor for the wedding cake and catering the food. *I want to insert how many compliments I received on both cake and food!!! Cara answered all of my questions and helped me with anything I asked. My wedding day was perfect; it was the happiest day of my life. And, I will always hold Spring Haven Mansion dear to my heart.

Thank you, Kevin and Cara, for sharing your home and expertise with me and Tim. I will definitely refer friends to you in the future.

I can never thank Cara and Kevin Hogan at Spring Haven Mansion enough for all they did to make our wedding so wonderful. They went out of their way, in every single way. We had the best time at our wedding and could not have had a more beautiful location to get married than Spring Haven. It was like stepping back in time. The lush green of the grounds and the history that shone from every corner made our wedding just that much more magical.

The packages that are offered have what each bride needs, whether a lot, or a little. The package we chose, was everything we needed and more. The inclusion of a wedding planner, Shelley Holland, took so much stress off of our shoulders, that all we really had to do was enjoy the day. They helped us with every detail, all the planning and we had the best time doing it, as everyone was so helpful and thoughtful.

Cara and Kevin, the owners of Spring Haven, there are not enough words to say thank you for all they did for us. It was the most magical day, and we will never forget it. Thank you always.

We booked our daughter's reception at Springhaven (site unseen) after searching web sites for months! After my initial call to Cara, I was sure that this was the perfect place. Cara and Kevin guided us every step of the way and ended up being like part of our family. The venue was breathtaking and everyone in attendance was overwhelmed by the beautiful surroundings. Cara and Kevin were there throughout the entire reception - from start to finish, making sure everything was perfect. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but Kevin worked the entire event and I have no doubt our special memories will be captured. I highly recommend Springhaven to anyone looking for a special place for your special day!

As parents of the bride, you want your “little girl” to have the most perfect, special day of her life. The Springhaven Mansion helped us to achieve that dream. Kevin and Cara Hogan opened up their beautiful home to host our destination wedding in Hendersonville TN. Not only were they gracious, charming, and easy to work with, but everyone they suggested as part of the wedding team, were as well. Shelley Holland, the wedding coordinator, went above and beyond to ensure an organized, delightful day. Kevin Thompson, our DJ, Patty Russell, our cake lady, and Chef Christopher all helped to ensure that our guests dined with great food, fantastic tasting cake, and music that got the party rockin!!

Our wedding day was the best day of my life.....I think about it all of the time. It was a beautiful location and Kevin and Cara are such sweet, wonderful people! The value was amazing for all that you get in the package. We had a DJ, bartender, photography, cake, grooms cake, harpist, flowers, decorations and ceremony/reception set up all included! It was a phenomenal value. Everyone kept commenting and praising how awesome the food made by Chef Christopher was. It was REALLY good and he was very flexible by allowing us to make substitutions to the menu. The flower vendors in the package from J.Botanica are the two sweetest ladies I've ever met. Judy and Julia made you feel like your wedding was the only one that mattered in the world and they were just so sweet and kind.....the flowers and decorations they created were so beautiful and I loved working with them. The DJ was very awesome and kept great music playing all night. The harpist was beautiful and did an amazing job! Patty at Patty Cakes made such a delicious cake.....she is so talented and went above and beyond on our cakes.....she even made our wedding cake a bit smaller and made a grooms cake to go along with it at no extra charge. The dark chocolate with peanut butter icing is the best cake I've ever had in my entire life! The only part of the wedding that had any disappointment was the bartender.....I had made a list of 3 signature drinks along with beer and wine and it was too much for her to keep up with. The mixed drinks were not very good and were not made the way I asked them to be made. If I had it to do over again, I would have had just beer and wine and maybe Jack and Coke for the guys. One person can only do so much. We still have TONS of alcohol left over b/c I bought too much and the mixed drinks were not very good so people didn't drink them. That would have saved a lot of money if I would have been advised to only have maybe one signature drink and beer and wine.

Our daughter was married on 10/10/10 at Spring Haven. This venue is so beautiful. There is no need to spend lots of money and time on adding to the look – it is all there for you! They gave us suggestions on vendors, but allowed us to make the decision on who we selected. There were no hidden fees, charges or agendas! Everything they said they would do they did. We booked Spring Have a year in advance so during the long planning process as questions came up I found email worked well for communicating. Once the day finally arrived we learned Kevin and Cara truly go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. They were visible at all time either working with the vendors, parking cars, assisting guest, snapping photos, or checking in with us to make sure all was good. I would highly recommend Spring Haven for your special day! Ours was perfect!

The minute we set foot on Spring Haven we knew it was the perfect place for us. We loved the beautiful landscape as well as the convenience of having our ceremony and reception in the same location. One of our favorite parts was that there was beautiful green space for the younger guests to run around and not be bored! Kevin and Cara Hogan are extremely friendly and warm souls, and they were such a delight to work with! They were flexible and caring, and we really felt welcomed at Spring Haven. They really know what they are doing, and we never felt overwhelmed or left in the dark!

SpringHaven Mansion is so beautiful that it required very little for me to decorate thus making everything a little bit easier. The owners are very obliging and knowledgable people. They already had some of the items that I otherwise would have had to rent and bring on the property. They helped with coordinating valet for me and just made the whole process so enjoyable!

They already had some of the items that I otherwise would have had to rent and bring on the property. They helped with coordinating valet for me and just made the whole process so enjoyable!

We LOVED the location---the look was beautiful, looked even better in our photos! The owners were a little difficult to communicate with at times---but in the end it all turned out beautifully!

My mom and I found this place by accident and it was absolutely beautiful. Cara and Kevin, the owners were so nice and helpful. The property was amazing and the backdrop was just perfect. They allow you to have whatever vendors you want which is really great. One other thing I should mention is that it is about 20 min from downtown Nashville but it's worth the drive and 10 X cheaper than anything in Nashville!!
My only complaint was that the photographs that were taken by Kevin weren't the best and there were a bunch that I wanted that didn't get. So I guess if you are going to rent here I'd definitly recommend it but maybe try and get your own photographer.

Spring Haven Mansion is a beautiful venue. Kevin and Cara Hogan were very easy to work with and we were completely satisfied with them...until we got back from our honeymoon. That's when we realized how unprofessional they were. Kevin Hogan was our photographer and his services were included in our package, which saved us a ton of money! But, they had a hard time keeping all of their responsibilities organized and many tasks were forgotten about which lead to them being late. Kevin told me I was be able to view all of my wedding photos on a website they go through a week after my wedding. Three weeks later...half of them were on there. Another week later, the rest were on the website. There were also issues with returning e-mails: If I sent an e-mail and Cara did not know the answer, she would leave the e-mail then forget to ever respond.
The mansion and the scenery were absolutely amazing. Our ceremony was absolutely breathtaking. Our wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous. The entire visuals of our wedding was a dream come true. This location was perfect in every way...except for the people running it.

Spring Haven Mansion responded with the following comments:

This bride had a problem with a service that is NOT included in the package but one that we GIVE the bride complementary at no cost as a gift, called Pictage. We understand brides want photographs immediately following the honeymoon, some more than others, but it is the natural process that it takes longer for a photographer to provide an album. Per her review everything including the photos were a dream come true.

Spring Haven was a nightmare to deal with during the planning process, however when the day of the wedding arrived they were wonderful.

The Good: Went over and above in order to ensure we could have an outdoor ceremony. It rained all day up until about an hour before the ceremony and Kevin was outside with dryers, rags, and anything else he could find to dry off trees, chairs, and the aisle. Cara was very helpful making sure I got to the aisle without getting my dress wet by holding up my dress and helping me walk around any puddles. The venue itself is very beautiful.


The Bad: They were extremely misleading about what they did provide and what they did not. When we first met with them they repeated over and over that there were no hidden charges and they took care of everything. They were explicitly asked about providing linens (we even had a checklist, so we had this in writing) and they said they did provide them. After the contract was signed they informed us they do not supply linens and we would be responsible for moving chairs from the ceremony to the reception. They actually suggested that we ask our guests to move their chairs from the ceremony to the reception!

We would not consider a venue that could not accommodate our 7 piece blues band, it was the single most important part of our reception and was booked prior to the venue. At the time of signing the contract this was fine with the venue. Afterwards they repeatedly told us they would shut down the band of they were too loud and continually asked us to downgrade to a jazz trio. I have no doubt that they would have shut down the band if we hadn’t had a Hendersonville City Council member in attendance. The bridal suite is minuscule, and I thought it was ridiculous that they required an extra $75 to unlock a door which expanded it to a reasonable size. The inside of the mansion is off limits to guests, had I known this prior to booking we would have passed. Our guests had to use a bathroom added to the back of the house and accessed via an exterior door.

We live out of town and arranged for an on-site meeting, as I had not seen the venue (my husband booked it after visiting in person without me). There was nobody at the venue when we arrived, and no way to get ahold of them. Later they called us back and rearranged for us to come out a few hours later, but implied that it was my fault for not calling to confirm. Kevin is a know it all, and loves to avoid wedding related questions by talking about himself or the house, he especially loved to name drop. He made a racially insensitive remark to my florist also.

We were only allowed a 7 hour block of time, and I wish I had pressed to purchase additional hours (they brushed me off when I brought it up, but I should have been more insistent). This included all setup and teardown time, and in order to have a 4 hour reception (they tried to make me think this was uncommon and talk me out of it, but I had the band for 4 hours and we were dead set) we had to cut back on setup time. Everyone had about 2 hours to setup, and barely 1 hour to breakdown and get off the property. Because of the rain earlier in the day this caused absolute chaos, I didn’t have time to see anything prior to the ceremony, several details were not setup properly, and it was sheer madness trying to get everything broken down in time. My biggest regret about my wedding is not going with a venue who would allow us to start setting up earlier. I worked so hard on so many details that weren’t set up correctly, or were left out all together because of the rush.
