Southern Love: Pinewood Retreat
Nashville Venues, Nashville Wedding Vendors
If you’re on the hunt for an all-inclusive farm wedding venue, look no further than Pinewood Retreat! Located in College Grove, Tennessee (adjacent to Franklin, TN), it is surrounded by lush agricultural surroundings. The contemporary venue, however, is suitable for a range of events, whether you want to host a chic open-air event or a modern indoor celebration. To help spark some creativity, here are just a few ideas for hosting a wedding at Pinewood Retreat.
Lush Outdoor Ceremony
For couples who want to eliminate travel between multiple venues, Pinewood Retreat functions as a dual ceremony and reception site. Host your nuptials in a private magnolia tree garden, where you will enjoy a backdrop of organic greenery and mature trees. Our popular Cross-back chairs are a gorgeous choice for this wedding venue, as shown below. Or opt for our Classic Fruitwood Folding Chairs.
Poolside Cocktail Hour
Following your ceremony, treat your guests to a cocktail hour in the nearby pavilion. It opens out onto a pristine blue pool, making it a fun location for warm-weather celebrations. A stylish bar designed to match the hedge wall and works well with nature-inspired celebrations! This spacious area can be set up with a number of bistro tables or lounge area, where guests can enjoy a drink and mingle. To complement the modern space and bright pool, consider a set of our beautiful blue linens.
Chic Tented Reception
Capable of hosting up to 300 of your friends and family, the manicured lawn is perfect for a tented reception. Here our Hexagon Frame Tent looks stunning! Beneath it, there is plenty of room for round dining tables, as well as a Plank Wood dance floor for a long night of dancing. The tablescape shown below features our Alabaster China, Hammered Flatware, Pure Glassware, and white linens. A chic design such as this is a beautiful way to contrast the lush lawn!
The open space at Pinewood Retreat is especially ideal for those who want to incorporate lounge areas. Placed outside of the tent, it is a great way to encourage guests to roam and mingle. You can take advantage of our existing lounge packages, or create one of your own!
Designated Children’s Area
To accommodate younger guests, consider a stylish children’s seating area. Create a fun designated dining and play area on the expansive lawn beneath our Hexagon Tent. Featuring children’s furniture, such as our Fruitwood Farm Table and Cross-back chairs, it is cozy yet stylish. Our team would love to help you come up with a unique children’s area that aligns with your unique wedding style or theme!

Bright & Bold
If you’re a couple who wants a less traditional look, we say rock some bright and bold colors! The warm tones at Saddle Wood, provided by cedarwood and iron details, contrast beautifully with bright shades. The following boho-inspired table packs a fun punch of color via our Burnt Orange Poly Table Linen and gold metallic accents. For a chic statement lounge area, check out our Saylor Navy Velvet Chairs, paired with a set of elegant Rhodes Side Tables and trendy Gloria Velvet Ottoman. It’s the perfect mix of both bold and classic colors.
Dark, Moody & Chic
While Saddle Woods has more rustic elements, tt looks equally gorgeous when outfitted with our luxe black rentals. Although non-traditional, this color is sure to lend a moody yet chic vibe to your event and the space. Below is a luxe sweetheart table paired with our contemporary Acrylic Ghost Armchairs. Behind it, you’ll notice a small lounge made with our stylish Regent Black Velvet Sofa and Echo Silver Mirror Side Tables. For the dinner table check out our Glass Charger with a Silver Rim, Onyx & Stone China, Hammered Flatware. The Black Nova Linens and a dab of pink in the centerpiece add a small touch of whimsy.
Should you prefer a traditional wedding look, then you’ll love this romantic set up. With the cedar rafters decorated with string lights, greenery and blush drapery, the Barn looks absolutely magical. To complement it, we dressed the reception tables in a mix of both burgundy and blush linens surrounded by cozy social areas. These areas feature our cowhide rugs and Conga Gold Drum Side Table as well as Bennett Leather Sofa, Grey London Loveseat and Cheval Gold Side Tables.

Shift to Neutral
Keeping your event color palette neutral can avoid a seasonal shift – but it doesn’t have to be boring! Try layering our Grey Goose Linens with Earthen China and glittering Pure Glassware for a modern event table design, or staging your event lounge with our Henley Grey Velvet Sofa, warm wood Adeline Chairs, and Echo Silver Mirror Side Tables for a luxe lounge area.

Warm + Cool
Use both warm and cool colors in varying shades in your season-less event design. This way you avoid seasonally inspired palettes – like spring pastels or rich fall colors. These colors can be mix in your florals, linens, furniture, and even flatware – like mixing our Brushed Copper Flatware and Sea Glass Velvet Linens.
