It brings together the past and the present. The end result is one of timeless beauty. It is a good place to show that your love is timeless and able to stand the test of time.
A Place of History
Maple Grove Estate was originally built in 1799. At the time, it was a private residence of Reverend Graham Ramsey. It remained a private residence until 1993 when it became a Bed and Breakfast. During the following years, it was home to wedding parties and other events.
In 2018, this beautiful home was renovated by the Shankles Family. The renovation was to renew its outstanding Georgian/Federal-style roots, complete with red-brick patios and wood trim. In 2019, it reopened its door to reveal the home’s true beauty, which is only accentuated by the 15.5-acres of Tennessee land making it the perfect place for gorgeous and romantic weddings.
Timeless Beauty, Endless Possibilities
Imagine yourself embracing your partner in front of a majestic two-story piece of history. Standing near a beautiful, flowing fountain, or walking among the trees with your white gown flowing around you. These photographs are all possible at Maple Grove Estate.
The bridal suite is simple and romantic. It is a great place to spend time with the girls while you prepare yourself to meet your groom.
As you walk down the aisle toward your fiance, you can take in the natural beauty surrounding this estate. You can choose from several different amazing areas, depending on the view that you like best. Each area features timeless beauty and promises endless possibilities for the future.
If you prefer an indoor wedding, this is a possibility as well. The indoor space of this newest wedding venue holds true to the theme of simple elegance. It is a place of basic decor accentuated by romantic lighting. This includes candlelight and twinkling strands of light. Natural light flowing through windows is also possible, depending on your personal style.
Wedding Party Accommodations
Whether you have dreams of a large wedding or a small ceremony, Maple Grove Estate can accommodate you. There are several different “spots” available on the property to say your vows. Each of these areas can accommodate up to 200 guests. With the basic package, you will have parking available for 100 vehicles. If you need more space for a larger group of people, you can ask about other options to ensure that your guest list can be as large as you want it to be.

A Season for All Good Things
During the spring, there are many reasons to say, “I do” at Maple Grove Estate, but it holds true throughout every season of the year. Although there have been many seasons that have passed since it was built, there are many seasons still to come. In its new “life” it will help others begin their life together.
The owner of Maple Grove Estate knows that brides want to feel special on the biggest day of their lives. It is with this thought in mind that they opened the doors of this estate to all brides-to-be and all other guests. It is Knoxville, Tennessee’s newest wedding venue and it offers a majestic beauty no matter what time of year your wedding will take place. The snow-covered ground can add a special flair to wedding photographs, as does the spring’s greenery, especially when it features this beautiful house in its background.
