Today’s wedding and event spotlight is Latham’s Lighthouse wedding and event center in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Right on Old Hickory Lake! I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding there in March, and in this feature, I thought I’d share strictly venue details. The view of the lake cannot be beat, the staff is hospitable and efficient, and it’s really nice inside. I don’t see how very many Nashville or Hendersonville wedding venues could have a comparably scenic view as the Lighthouse does.

This is the back patio with a view of the lake. The reception area with a bar has opening garage style doors that access this lovely covered patio. This is a perfect bleed over area for guests to get fresh air or escape the crowd or noise for a moment.

The newly renovated dining hall upstairs from the reception area. This is a nice idea because The Lighthouse has delicious in-house catering and this helps maximize space. Also, they don’t have to flip the room for the reception. It’s all seamless and efficient.

The bar in the reception area downstairs is near the patio access which is nice, as the room isn’t divided and bar traffic doesn’t interfere with dance floor traffic. The option of an open and easy to access dance floor, and an outdoor patio makes for a great guest experience.

I can certainly feel confident recommending The Lighthouse for weddings events if you’re looking for scenic indoor / outdoor Nashville or Hendersonville wedding venues. Or an event venue for a different purpose. Danielle is the on staff day of coordinator who is helpful to the couple and vendors. It never hurts to have some help and guidance, as event and wedding planning can be exhausting without an ally. I hope you’ve enjoyed this feature on Latham’s Lighthouse, I look forward to returning.
