Our first stop was The Barn Event Center of the Smokies. This is a gorgeous place that looks like it's been here forever. It's actually very new. I have a deep and abiding love for cantilevered barns. The inside is very spacious and airy. The rental fees are reasonable and the catering fees aren't bad either. However, the latest we could stay was midnight and that included cleanup time. I also wanted to be able to bring my own caterer in and they charged extra for that. This was definitely an option but it wasn't exactly what we were looking for.
