Featured Vendor: Rippavilla Plantation

If you know anything about An Elegant Encounter, you know that we are big on honesty. We’re always gonna tell you the truth. And the truth is, Nashville wedding venues are EXPENSIVE.

Our wedding planners have been scouring the outer edges of Nashville looking for alternative wedding venues for you. If you haven’t read our review of the bride-friendly Historic Rosemont, read it here.

Today, we would like to present to you Rippavilla, an amazing, affordable wedding and event venue in Spring Hill, TN.


Never heard of Spring Hill? It’s a small town about a 30-minute drive south of Nashville. Your guests can stay the night in beautiful, historic Franklin, TN, about 20 minutes from Spring Hill, and you can enjoy great savings by booking at Rippavilla.

This beautiful mansion dates back to 1855. Weddings are allowed both indoors and outdoors, with an indoor guest limit of 55 and an outdoor limit of 500. Our favorite part of the home is the cute little courtyard, which is perfect for dancing.

An Elegant Encounter recently had the opportunity to participate in a bridal fair at Rippavilla. We met some awesome local vendors, so we will be happy to share some recommendations if you are booking your wedding at the plantation. Here are some of our favorite photos from inside the mansion and courtyard:
