I wish everyday could be a Saturday. I absolutely love waking up on a Saturday at 6am, preparing the farmhouse and bridal suite for a bride and her entourage that will soon arrive, setting out ceremony benches, fluffing all of the curtains, and making sure every little detail in the barn is perfect for wedding day. To make this Saturday even better, @gypsydreamsphotographer released new pictures from the @celina_marie00 wedding, held two weeks ago at @riverbend_farms. Crystal always outdoes herself! She is very creative with her shot selection. Her images not only tell the story of the wedding, but she also adds in beautiful pictures of the venue. We look forward to working with her again next weekend! @visitmonroetn #visitmonroetn #tellicoriverweddings #tellicoriver #tellicoplainstn #tellicoplainsweddingvenue #destinationweddingvenue #elopement #smokymountains #cherokeenationalforest #rusticbarn #rusticelegance #farmweddingvenue #outdoorvenue #easttennesseeweddingvenue #weddingwire #theknot #thepinkbride #southernwedding #southernbride
A good friend knows all your stories. A best friend helped you write them😊. Looking for your dream venue? Schedule a tour, load up your girlfriends, and head to the venue. We'd love to show you around @riverbend_farms! @jhlanders @dreklanders @tecalyn_photography @visitmonroetn @thegildedgown @davidsbridal
This sweet couple right here...@mariacolvinpayne contacted us last October with the idea of having a destination wedding at @riverbend_farms, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Maria lives in Marietta, Ga., so we planned all of the details via phone calls, text messages, pictures, and emails. We finally met on Sunday, April 7th, her wedding day! We love working with couples, both near and afar, helping them plan and execute their dream wedding day! @juliesummitt.photography @joshbutlertv @kelb81481 @visitmonroetn #visitmonroetn #tellicoriverweddings #tellicoplainstn #tellicoplainsweddingvenue #easttennesseeweddingvenue #mountainview #rusticbarn #weddingandeventsvenue #rusticelegance #weddingwire #thepinkbride #theknot #destinationweddingvenue #cherokeenationalforest

The rain stopped, the sun was shining, and our bride had the wedding of her dreams! I am still in awe of the transformation that took place in our 100 year old, rustic barn last night. Lugh Lemley, Keith Bester, and staff turned @riverbend_farms into the most elegant place in town! @visitmonroetn @cherohalaskywaytn
Flowers fit for a queen today at @riverbend_farms! Can't wait until our bride, Brooklen Walsh, steps into the barn and sees this centerpiece for the first time!
We have the most beautiful brides at our venue😍! Photography by one of our favorites, @gypsydreamsphotographer! This month, Crystal's photographs are featured on the cover of @monroelifemagazine, McMinn Life, and Farragut Life Magazines!
Tours, prom pics, and a lovely afternoon wedding. It has been a beautiful, fun-filled weekend at @riverbend_farms! Parents, thank you for letting us share in this special moment with your children! @maci.foley @shelbss.01 @kristikellysisson @everydaywithshay @rnsondralee @isaacpina8
This view tonight made weedeating not so bad.
We've enjoyed the music from many dj's at weddings over the last year at @riverbend_farms, but the live music provided by local artists @honalee_home_music on Sunday was so special! Diana played the cello, while Perry strummed the guitar and the old-time clawhammer banjo. If you want to add an element of elegance to your wedding, we highly recommend the Brake's!🎙
Blessed with another beautiful rainbow tonight at @riverbend_farms!
Love this little gem that we bought in Southport, North Carolina from @thepaintedmermaidsouthport. What was once a clothes wringer is now an ice cold beverage stand. #visitmonroetn #tellicoplainsweddingvenue #tellicoriverweddings #easttennesseeweddingvenue #rusticwedding #rusticbarn #rusticelegance #destinationweddingvenue
A year ago today I vowed to love you forever 💗 Happy first anniversary to the best husband and dad ever!

Happy Spring from @riverbend_farms !
It's wedding week at @riverbend_farms and we are ready to party! We get to kick off our spring wedding season at the venue by celebrating Miss Chelsea Fell and Aaron Pratt on Friday and Saturday night. Aaron proposed to Chelsea in December of 2017 at Conasauga Falls. They soon began building their first home together on her family's farm. They will be the first couple of the year to experience all of our new upgrades to the venue: *hardwood floors throughout the barn *new heating system *new sound system *new expanded dance floor *new windows on the barn *new landscaping Here's to a new year full of sweet memories made at the farm!🍾
I just wanna take a second to brag on Emily. About a year ago I was looking for someone to be my assistant at an upcoming wedding, and she volunteered without hesitation. She’s been my assistant for every wedding day she’s been available since. Y’all, this girl is the BEST dress fluffer, veil tosser, reflector holder, and voice of encouragement. She has such a kind heart, and something about being around her can instantly put you at peace. If you get the chance to meet Emily Makowski, you are lucky. I am so grateful that I get to call her my friend and that I get to work with her on some wedding days! I’m going to miss her when she goes home for the summer 😢 • Fun facts about Emily: She’s a sophomore at Lee, and she’s involved in Campus Choir and Delta Zeta Tau. One of her life goals is to visit every national park at least once. She also loves chips and queso. A gal after my own heart. ❤️ • THANK YOU, Emily, for all your hard work AND for being such a great friend!!
So excited to have @riverbend_farms merchandise on the way to the venue! Our first shipment of t-shirts should arrive soon, just in time for warmer temps. Heather Mint, Heather Stone, Heather Peach, and Heather Deep Teal are on the way. Shirts can be ordered in any of the color choices shown below. Our logo and wording will be on the back with Riverbend Farms on the front. These make the perfect gifts for your wedding party since they can be customized with your name and wedding date across the bottom.
Only 2 Saturday's remain open this fall at @riverbend_farms; Sept. 7th and Nov. 9th. Snag one before they are gone and celebrate your special day with us!
Such a sweet moment captured by @juliesummitt.photography, wiping cake off of their faces❤. #visitmonroetn #tellicoplainstn #tellicoriverweddings #tellicoplainsweddingvenue #rusticelegance #rusticbarn #farmweddingvenue #easttennesseeweddingvenue #destinationweddingvenue #knoxvilleweddings #knoxvillebrides #chattanoogaweddings #chattanoogabrides #blackandwhitephotography
Happy 1st Birthday, Miss Emma Rose! Can't wait to celebrate you tonight!🎂🎉🎁
As a result of the recent flooding in East Tennessee, we are aware that a few venues are no longer able to host weddings this Spring. We pray that their damages will be repaired and that they will be back up and running soon! Thankfully, @riverbend_farms was not affected. We have several dates this Spring that are available, so please pass this along to any couples that now have the task of finding a new wedding venue. @GypsyDreams Photography @Ivy Breanne Photography
A picture full of happiness on this gloomy day. Saturday, September 14th and Friday, October 18th, 2019 are both available at @riverbend_farms! We would be honored to host your wedding or special event at the venue! @ivytakesphotos

All the rain lately is reminding me of Hanna + Josh’s wedding last April ☔️ It rained all day but stopped just in time for their outdoor ceremony! Josh + Hanna didn’t let the rain get them down - their wedding was absolutely beautiful, and everyone could see just how in love they were. There’s an old wedding superstition that says rain on your wedding day is actually good luck because it signifies your marriage will last! So if it rains on your wedding day, don’t worry. It might actually be good luck 😉

Look at this delivery we received over the weekend at @riverbend_farms! An enormous assortment of cedar wooden slices in a variety of sizes. And we can't let this kind gesture go unnoticed. These slices were given to all couples at our wedding venue to use by one of our very own brides, @haley_danielle01! Thanks so much, Haley!!
What do Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia all have in common?

Over here feeling extra thankful for everyone that supports my photography business. If you would’ve told me 5 years ago that I would be a photographer, let alone full-time, I wouldn’t have believed you for a second. I’m so glad that this is what I get to do for a living + be a stay at home mom ❤️

In my mind this picture should be captioned something cute and cheesy, like “dancing into this week.” But to be honest with you, I’m not exactly dancing into this week. I’m soaking up every last second of my Sunday because I don’t want the weekend to be over. I’ve got a long week ahead, and I’m currently mentally going over my to-do list for the week over and over again. The week ahead may seem daunting, but we can get through it together, my friends! Praying peace and joy over all of you as you head into another week of work, school, and just life in general. Real talk: If you need prayer, PLEASE comment on this post or message me. I would love to talk to you and pray for you. ❤️
We are humbled to have received this award today at @riverbend_farms! We are so honored and will continue to provide our couples with a wonderful experience at our venue in Tellico Plains, Tn. #weddingwire #2019coupleschoiceaward #thepinkbride #tellicoplainsweddingvenue #tellicoriverweddings #visitmonroetn
