Welcome to the Grand Hall at Cedar Pond Farms inside the Grand White Barn
In the Smoky Mountain foothills, brides have options on wedding locations and wedding venues. Our Grand White Barn is perfect in colder weather with our large heating unit. This hall can be configured in many different ways and this makes your day more special because there is no “cookie-cutter” wedding location on the farm. You can Do-It-Yourself or have one of our planners handle everything. Let’s start with this video to learn about thin biggest indoor space on the farm… the Grand Hall.

We want to give you some private extra lockable rooms for changing clothes or getting ready in peace. These rooms have been also used a kid’s corral, a nursing station, or just a quiet spot to get a breather on a busy day. The hand-sink, small fridge, and changing area make it great to get ready in style. The flat-screen LED TV and individual air conditioner units make it comfortable and entertaining. Learn more with a quick tour with Shawn Wilmoth farm owner.
Pay-it-forward is the best! See how this beautiful ready room is a fun place to start your special day with special decor and lighting.
Shawn and Priscilla recently set out to improve and expand the ready room at the Grand White Barn and boy, did they! This room has been known over the years as the pay-it-forward closet because brides and other event hosts have left items behind like cupcake towers, red LED lighted decor table lanterns, 5 selfie light rings, wine glasses, and more. Now half the large room is truly a fantastic and special ready room for brides and hosts for up to 6 makeup chairs and a lounging area complete with LED lighting, an ivy wall, and a rose wall.
