Outdoor Wedding Picture

I am so grateful we had our wedding at The Red House! The venue was the very first thing we booked and thank God, because through their recommendations we were able to find the most fabulous caterer, photographer and event rentals as well. We fell in love with the Red House because of the awesome music memorabilia/decor (my husband is a music geek) and the idea of having our wedding in a historic old house. We decided to have our wedding on the front lawn, but I also loved their rain plan if we had needed it (we didn’t, but it’s nice to know I would have been happy with both). Bethe, The Red House coordinator, was so easy-going and calm. She was very confident and made expert recommendations for table/bar/food placement, as well as additional staff. The day of she was so organized and kept everything moving and flowing smoothly. I’m so lucky we had her there to help and guide!I really appreciated the flexibility of The Red House as well. They let you bring in your own alcohol, which saved a ton of money and also recommended a very reasonable priced and professional bartender (I didn’t even have to contact them, Bethe took care of it all!). We even were able to bring in our own cake and desserts! I just loved the intimate feel and mix of historic/modern touches. Everything was so perfect and magical the night of with the twinkling lights in the trees and the guests mingling on the lawn. Overall it was my dream venue and their level of experience, recommendations and vendor partnerships just put it over the top!

I recently had my wedding at The Red House on November 2, 2013. I can’t recommend this venue enough… from start to finish, the communication from The Red House was outstanding. This is the perfect place to have a fun, intimate wedding, and the tone can be as casual and as formal as you want. My husband and I wanted something super laid back that didn’t have many of the traditional events (first dance, large wedding party, etc), and it was still a great wedding because the venue is so cool (think charming historic house with gigantic rock and roll posters everywhere). Also, The Red House gives you lots of flexibility – hire any florist you want, an excellent selection of caterers, Bring-Your-Own alcohol (which will save you oodles of $$$). If you do nothing else when you book The Red House (and you should!) you should also hire Bethe as your day-of wedding coordinator. She is literally a life saver. I worried about NOTHING on my wedding day because she set up the rentals and decorations and met with the vendors. Best money I spent on the wedding by far. Thank you Red House for a beautiful wedding!

I had my wedding at The Red House on October 13th, 2012. I have to say it was AMAZING! Bethe, the official coordinator for the house, was perfect. She handled everything we could not with ease and grace. Our guests raved on her! This was the best, most unique, place I found to have a wedding. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it EXACTLY the same at the same place. Thanks to Bethe and The Red House owners for letting us and our family spend our big day here.

I was so happy with The Red House when I had my wedding there this past August!! The new event manager, Bethe, was spectacular! She was so kind and took care of every detail and made sure everything was perfect, making my day so special! The owner personally introduced herself to me and my husband, Brent, and it showed me the amount of love and care that went into each event! I LOVE THE REDHOUSE!! HAVE YOUR WEDDINGS/EVENTS HERE!!!

My husband and I held our wedding reception at The Red House this past May. I cannot stress enough how incredibly happy we both were with it. All of our guests have given us extremely positive feedback on the venue. They all loved the atmosphere and warmth that it provided. This was the perfect venue for both our personalities and our budget! It allowed us to make cuts that other venues wouldn’t have, and we were still able to paint the picture we had imagined. It was perfect. The coordinator, Bethe, was absolutely phenomenal. Her personality in itself put me at ease with the planning, and then the day of she went  above and beyond to make sure that everything went the way we wanted to. If anything needed to be done, she handled it so that we could enjoy our special day. She really is an angel and was essential to the success of our reception. Use this venue and Bethe! You will NOT be disappointed!!

We utilized The Red House for our wedding this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing. The venue is unique, very eye-catching and it’s in the middle of historic downtown Franklin which just adds to it all. I could not possibly imagine choosing anywhere else at this point. Our event planner, Bethe, was incredible. From the time I walked in the door, I knew we were going to see exactly what we wanted actually fulfilled. She pointed us in the right direction for everything from catering down to tiny, meaningful details to make it really special to us. She has such a calming nature which is much needed when it comes to planning any sort of event. I really cannot thank her enough and I really cannot think of anywhere else out there that offers all the elements of event planning so simply in such a distinct, individual way. The Red House and Bethe totally rock it.

BEST. WORK. PARTY. EVER! Thanks to Bethe, Emily, Chris and Pueblo Real, we had the work party of the century! One of my co-workers recommended this venue to me as the party coordinator, and we COULD NOT have made a better decision. Initially, I was nervous that the party was going to be a flop, but Bethe and Emily and Chris laughed with us, danced with us, took photobooth pictures with us and most importantly had a fabulous time with us! I have already recommended The Red House to several friends, and I will be hosting another event there myself. Great venue. Great decor. Great wait/bar staff. Great event coordinator. Great food. Great location. Great everything!

On behalf of the Franklin Firefighters Association, I would like to thank Bethe Smith and the Red House staff for making our Christmas party the best one over the last 15 years. We were ready for a change from our traditional sit down dinner and party to something more fun and inclusive. From the initial visit to the last guest leaving,The Red House was AWESOME! Beteh helped us coordinate every bit of the event and made sure we were well taken care of in every aspect. The catering and event set up, including décor, was amazing. The party flowed so much better than any other party we’ve had. I would strongly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a historic place with awesome vibe! We will definitely be back.

As an “offbeat bride” kind of girl, I fell in love with The Red House moments after walking in. My husband and I KNEW it was perfect for us. We did our research and picked out two venues to actually go see. The Red House was our second visit. We were not after a full-service all-inclusive place. (they’ll find a way to make it happen if that is what you want.) We wanted something without many strings attached that fit our personalities. Bethe was absolutely delightful. I adored her temperament and her willingness to help as much or little as needed. The price difference in taking a Friday evening wedding instead of the coveted Saturday slot made it affordable. The venue required little decoration and the night was gorgeous. I would NEVER pick another place if I had it to do all over again. I HIGHLY recommend.

Loved having our wedding at The Red House. Bethe was great to work with, and the venue itself is classy and elegant and requires minimal decoration. All of our guests loved it, and I loved having a choice of being inside or outside.

The Red House is an incredibly unique place to get married and have a wedding reception. The guests were never bored because they were able to walk around and view all of the record artwork on the walls. The wedding planner/coordinator that we worked with up until the wedding was incredibly kind and helpful. She did all that she could to make sure that I was happy with the set up and our service. It is a small venue so I wouldn’t recommend having your reception here if you have more than eighty, but for something smaller, this place is perfect.

The Red House was a perfect place to hold our wedding. The house is just a fun place to have a party. Our guests loved it. The staff was perfect and made it a stress free day. You should have your party here.

My daughter’s wedding was December 8, 2012 at the Red House in Franklin, TN. The wedding day was absolutely perfect. The Red House is an event house in beautiful downtown Franklin, TN. It is perfect for a small wedding of about 75 people or less. They provide outside and inside weddings. For outside weddings, they could accommodate more people. Because of my daughter’s wedding being in December we opted for the inside wedding, and it was so perfect. Bethe Smith is the wedding coordinator and she made this day go so smoothly. As mother of the bride I was a bit overwhelmed and stressed and Bethe made sure that I was put to ease. She coordinated who walked down the aisle first and made sure everything went smoothly. After the ceremony, she and her helpers went around making sure all the guests were taken care of. She also made sure the wedding party got something to eat because she knew none of would take the time if she hadn’t insisted. During the reception, I didn’t have to lift a finger because it all just happened thanks to the expertise of Bethe Smith, our wonderful coordinator. I just can’t thank her enough for all of her help. She made my daughter’s wedding the most perfect day of her life. It will always be a day that she will remember and cherish. Thank you, Bethe, for everything that you did.

My husband and I knew we wanted an outdoor wedding, and we were having trouble finding a location that worked with our budget. After weeks of searching and visiting locations (only to find out they were not what we wanted or were out of our price range), we finally found The Red House. The Red House was absolutely perfect for us. On the outside, the Red House is all southern charm. Inside, the Red House is rock ‘n’ roll. We wanted a wedding that was classy and charming, but still approachable and fun. The Red House was the perfect setting for the wedding and reception that we wanted. We enlisted the services of Bethe, our wedding coordinator at the Red House, and she was fantastic. She made sure that our entire day ran smoothly. Everyone seemed to comment on how great this location was for our wedding–it just suited us perfectly. I would definitely recommend the Red House.
