We are Sampson’s Hollow—a 120 acre family farm in Walland, Tennessee. Our property is reminiscent of the rolling green hills of Ireland and connected to the heritage of the Tipton-Oliver family from nearby Cades Cove. The charm of a farm wedding can be as rustic and vintage as influenced by your favorite Pinterest boards. Do you have a vision of a woodland wedding, in a whimsical and enchanted forest surrounded by tall trees and mossy paths inspired by Twilight? Would you love having stunning photographs made in fields and meadows of billowy wildflowers? Are you concerned about having a backup plan in case of bad weather, and having an experienced group of people who can make that change for you at a moment’s notice?VIEW MORE!
Elope to the Smoky Mountains
We specialize in dreams-of-a-lifetime events, inspired by the traditions and values of our historic century-old Tennessee farm. The smaller ceremonies listed as follows have been designed for destination and/or elopement types of weddings. We are not a wedding chapel and typically only do one wedding per day. Saturdays are for our larger events which require more time and usually have more than thirty guests. Our elopement ceremonies can only be booked for weekdays or weeknight afternoons during peak season. However, if you have a last-minute decision to have a wedding in our area, give us a call at 865.387.1234 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to check to see if we have availability for a Friday afternoon or Saturday.VIEW MORE!
