We got married at Iriswoods on 12/3/21 and everything was AMAZING thanks to Babs and her staff! I loved the idea that Iriswoods was an all inclusive venue and Babs did a lot of the behind the scenes work for us down to some very specific details that I hadn't even considered when I started wedding planning myself. Babs' planning meetings were great to figure out many of the details from the day of timeline to the menu, to the table decorations at each table. We ended up moving out of TN only 4 months before our wedding, and I was so grateful we had chosen Babs and Iriswoods, because even though we (and all of our guests) traveled to TN for the big day, I knew she had everything taken care of!
DJ Wade did an AMAZING job both during our ceremony and at the reception. The food from Wildeberry catering was phenomenal (we served a brunch!) and our cake was beautiful and delicious! The photo booth we added as an upgrade was loved by all our guests, they even included our names on the printouts with our wedding colors, which was a nice touch (we just were so busy we forgot to get in our own photo booth together!). Babs did a fantastic job presenting our wedding favors (blankets, to have and to hold in case you get cold!), she made me the most BEAUTIFUL bouquet (that I didn't even think I wanted originally, but she included my favorite lilies and Irises (our theme!)) and made sure everything ran smoothly. My wedding was the third family celebration in 2021, and many of my guests pointed out how polite and efficient all of the Iriswoods staff were compared to the other two weddings. Babs also had a great list of other vendors to contact including photographers, officiants, hair and make-up and local hotels that would give an Iriswoods discount.
Lastly, considering it's 2.5 months post wedding and I still don't have any pictures after I asked for an unplugged ceremony, I am FOREVER grateful to Babs and her staff for the pictures they did take on my special day as those are all we have so far!
If I could do it all again, I would choose Babs and Iriswoods again, hands down! The only change I'd make is to do a longer package/get married later in the day so I'd have enough time to get ready, and plenty of time to enjoy all the things I wanted at my reception (since I was the one who was not ready on time, and we were dead set on a noon wedding). Thank you Babs and the Iriswoods team for all your hard work!
