We never ever get tired of this view and the photo opp that it provides to our brides and their grooms. Doesn't matter what season of the year, it is still an enchanted, princess-bride, kind of image!

Where has this month gone? Is it truly less then two weeks before Thanksgiving? it seems as though I was just planting bedding flowers in April just a little while ago. It's been a great year--lots of weddings--happy brides and grooms! We love what we do and it shows. Do wedding venues have ...

In keeping with the homestead environment of the farm, one of our structures is referred to as the smokehouse. This building was falling apart on a different property and we dismantled it, labeled the parts and pieces to know what went where, and then rebuilt it where it stands now. It has become...

Indeed we are tucked away in a hollow in Walland, Tennessee with a population of approximately 300 people. Seriously, that’s what the last US Census reports. Sounds good to us. No sounds of traffic. Quiet, peaceful and surrounded by mountain views. Thank you Shelby Wooten for this sweet picture o...

Thirty Days of November: Day 2. It’s a gorgeous day in the mountains of East Tennessee. The farm is ideally located between two panoramic views of these mountains in a peaceful hollow. Happy that we didn’t go with our first choice to call the venue Sampson’s Ridge. It just didn’t roll off of the ...

Thirty Days of November. Bing Crosby sang a song in a movie called Holiday Inn. The song was called, “Count Your Blessings.” It’s my fav song in the movie. The lyrics remind me that it’s almost impossible to put a number on the number of blessings we have. I’m going to reflect over the next 30 da...

My best friend had her wedding here last weekend. It is BEAUTIFUL! The staff is wonderful. Her coordinator was so awesome! The cabin the bride's party was getting ready in is so adorable. We had a great time. I would recommend anyone looking for a beautiful place to have your dream wedding to call them. You will not be disappointed. Beautiful is not a good enough word.

Our wedding was perfect in every way - all because of the Sampson’s Hollow team! They took care of us from the moment we signed the contract. The venue was immaculate, the ceremony location (Sarah’s Glen) was ethereal and storybook-esque, the DJ/musicians they provided were perfect, the food & cake were delicious and the cabin for our wedding night was magnificent. You cannot go wrong if you choose Sampson’s Hollow for your big day!

We just returned home from our wedding at Sampson’s Hollow and we can’t stop talking about how PERFECT our day was, thanks to everyone at this beautiful venue. Lesley was amazing from the start - so organized and laid back. Everyone made us feel so special. The food was delicious, the cake was gorgeous, and the flowers were the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. We decided to get married on the porch of the red barn and it was beautiful looking out at the sun shining on the mountains and fields. We are so glad that we chose Sampson’s Hollow for our wedding. It was a memorable experience that our family and friends will be talking and smiling about for a long time.

Southern charm at its best

A southern wedding…transcending time and dimension—charming, romantic and uniquely your own; the beginning of your happily ever should be a magical moment to be remembered forever and captured in the windows of your soul. Our wedding venue, located in the Great Smoky Mountains makes for a perfect destination for out of state brides as well as for last minute elopements. Sampson's Hollow is an event facility that will provide the storybook location for any special event or gathering.  Recently named as a 2019 Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice winner and The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2019, the naturally landscaped farmland has been in the family since the mid 1800’s.  It was recently recognized by the state of Tennessee as an historic Century-old farm.  Located next to Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee and fifteen minutes from the entrance to the national park, Sampson’s Hollow is easily accessible while still maintaining the privacy and seclusion which most guests desire.  In the event of bad weather, the porch of our contemporary barn will seat approximately 175 guests on a covered front porch, accented by a lighted chandelier in the center of the elevated roof and a full view of the beauty of the property.  Our newly constructed Foundry will seat an additional 40 guests with a majestic view to enjoy. The interior of the barn will seat up to 100 guests, depending on use of space.  Features include air-conditioning, a wood burning fireplace, upstairs loft for changing, three restrooms, a small kitchen and a handicap –accessible entrance. A sweetly adorned cabin provides a dressing suite for the bride and her attendants as well as a romantic beginning for the first night as husband and wife. Please visit our website at www.sampsonshollow.com for more information and click on our links to Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube to see photos and a virtual tour of the property.
