The Bleak House – Knoxville Wedding Venue Open House – Spring 2014

One of the joys of ramping up for wedding season is meeting with brides at the open house of a Knoxville wedding venue. For the wedding vendors, it’s actually an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the venues and each other’s company while we aren’t focused on working a wedding. Most of wedding season, we see each other at the weddings we work but rarely can stop and talk very long.

We’ve been lucky enough to attend many of 2014’s open houses and shows, including at Dara’s Garden/Rothchild Catering & Conference Center, Whitestone Country Inn, Crescent Bend House and Gardens, The Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm, The Reserve at Bluebird Hill, Fox Den Country Club, The Pink Bride Bridal Show, The Bridal and Beyond Show, Women Today Expo, and Belk – West Town Mall (we think that’s it!).

This weekend, however, we did something a little different when the Bleak House opened their doors to show off the property to couples looking for a space for their wedding, reception, or special events and parties. The Bleak House was putting on a “staged wedding” for brides to get an idea for what their wedding might look like, and we took lots of pictures—especially of the gorgeous floral arrangements by Melissa Timm Designs. In addition, The Gilded Gown and Savvi Formalwear teamed up to put on a brief fashion show to display some of this year’s trends in formal wear. Lastly, a delectable spread of quality foods were prepared and shared by Bradford Catered Events. Click here for a full list of vendors at the Bleak House!
