I could not have imagined a more beautiful ceremony! This location is the most gorgeous outdoor venue in our area, and my wedding ( a year later) is still talked about/considered one of the most fun weddings anyone has ever attended.

I wanted something simple, yet elegant and felt that I had found that in Blackhaven. The pictures do show off her gardens beautifully, but I did not get to experience all of that. With the drought that we had, most all of the flowers were

I had read reviews on Blackhaven and in all honesty I dont think any of them do justice! I got engaged in Feb. of this year and decided 7 months was plenty of time to plan a wedding... I mean really how hard could it be? I HAD NO IDEA!!!

My husband and I looked everywhere for an outside venue that was up to our standards. A venue without a road running right in front of it, or a train whistling every 10mins! And let me tell you what, it was hard to find anything as beautiful and breath taking as Mrs. Black's Wedding Gardens. Nothing else compared, and we looked at them all. \n\nWhen we first came out and looked at her gardens, we knew it was the place for us. We were put off by this ""burned bride"" that had been popping up all over the Internet talking bad about Mrs. Black and Cristy though. So, we were hesitant until we saw Mrs. Black's reply to ""burned bride"". Plus, nothing else was looking as promising as this venue. So, we decided to go for it.\n\nIn the end we're glad we did. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding and reception. Everyone told us all night long how beautiful everything was. If we could go back in time we would choose this venue over and over again! We had no problems with Mrs Black or Christy, they were very nice and helpful. They could charge so much more for this lovely venue which puts all other outside venues to shame, but they really care about their costumers and are trying to help by keeping a lower price during these hard times. \n\nIf you are looking for an outside venue, you have to go look at this one. You won't be let down.

My daughter just recently had her June wedding at Blackhaven. Eveything went perfect. It was a little warm but Ms. Black and Christy done a fantastic job of keeping everything on schedule and let us know what was going on. I would highly recommend this Blackhaven Wedding Gardens. It was absoultely breathtaking. The pictures turned out amazing. We have got more compliments on the wedding. Thank you again, Christy and Ms. Black for having such a wonderful venue.

After reading the quite lengthy diatribe on virtually every wedding website posted by Burned Bride (@ Lisas Loft & aka Tammy), we felt that we owed it to future brides to give an explanation of her exaggerated comments regarding her wedding.\r\n\r\nHer post was mainly generated by the fact that we kept $300.00 out of her $500.00 deposit, which we felt we were justified in keeping for several damages and extra use of the facility that had not been paid for. She attempted to recover the $300.00 through the Better Business Bureau, who also found us justified in our actions. We do have receipts, and pictures to document this. This was the first time in all our years of business, we have had to keep someones deposit.\r\n\r\nOur Burned Bride failed to mention the two burning grills and deep fryer she had brought on the property. The first line in her contract is no grills, in writing, like everything else she essentially chose to ignore. She instructs future brides to make sure they get everything in writing. Im not sure why, since her new husband, who says hes a lawyer, informed us in writing that it was frivolous. Since when is a signed contract frivolous? We adhered to the contract that she signed. Problem was, she essentially didnt.\r\n\r\nWe hate that our Burned Bride had to be supposedly carried from her reserved parking place on a beautiful May day that has pavement all the way\r\nto the door. Other comments made by her, we feel, do not warrant even mentioning.\r\n\r\nWe apologize for the future brides that are being subjected to these unwarranted comments. We will be more than glad to discuss this, produce pictures, receipts, and documents to any bride-to-be regarding this matter.\r\n\r\nBlackhaven Wedding Gardens\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Blackhaven Wedding Gardens (Blackhaven) in Lebanon, Tennessee is indeed a beautiful venue, but the owner was one of the rudest and most unprofessional persons I have ever dealt with in my 10+ years of event planning experience. In the initial meeting with Blackhaven the owner was very nice and accommodating. It wasn't until after I had paid my deposit that she took a ""my way or the highway"" attitude in our meetings. She reneged on verbal agreements, lied and, essentially, stole money from my damage deposit that she had no valid receipts showing damages. If I had known what a nightmare the owner was going to be to deal with, I would not have been so eager to book my wedding there. You can read more about my story at burnedbride[dot]com.

My daughter's wedding at Blackhaven on June 13th was really beautiful. She wanted an outdoor wedding and her dream came true. The grounds are beautiful and everything was excellent. The staff really helps with everything and makes it easy to plan a wedding there. The cake and DJ were a big bonus.

Pros: all inclusive package deal

My daughter married at Blackhaven Weddings Gardens in May. Mrs. Black, owner, and Christy, wedding coordinator, went to great lengths to make sure my daughter had the wedding of her dreams. We could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding. The reception hall was beautifully decorated and everyone was so accommodating. We will cherish the pictures for a lifetime. I highly recommend this venue. Our family could not have been more pleased with everything. Thanks again to Mrs. Black and Christy for all they did to make my daughter's special day a success!

Pros: they have everything ,their package deal is wonderful

I totally agree with ""mom"". They guards were awful and they did harass the guest. As for the dress of the guards, they should've been dressed more ""classy"". You can't help what you're other guest come dressed in, but if you are made to pay for a service you have some expectations and they did not meet those. I understand counting of the people, but it should've been done in a more suttle manner. \r\n\r\nThis other guy who wrote sounds like someone who works at Blackhaven. I would not suggest this place to anyone.

I was a guest at your daughters wedding! I asked why the counting of people at the gate too. I was told because the wedding party had invited more guests than could be allowed, you really can't blame them. As for the security man, I personally believe he was doing his job when he stopped one groomsmen who decided to stop up the toilet as a prank. If anything, Mom, you should be grateful that you didn't have to pay for expensive plumbing damage! If I had been the guard, I would have made him leave. It was one of the prettiest weddings I had ever been to. The staff was, I thought, very nice including the security guy.\r\n\r\nIf you are going to complain, Mom, you need to say it all. I also want to make a note that why you were complaining about the way the staff dressed, you really didn't have any room to talk.....all the people in your daughters wedding wore flip-flops.....realllllllly classy!!!!

I am still in shock at how the owner and her daughter treated the wedding party, vendors and guests and my daughters wedding this past weekend. The security they hired harrassed the wedding party and guests all night. When you go visit they are so nice and then after you sign the contract they become impossible to deal with. My daughters wedding was beautiful but not due to the Blackhaven staff. I had wonderful vendors and friends that helped to make the day special for her. The staff at Blackhaven did everything they could to cause as much stress as possible on the day of the wedding. They required security and charged extra for that because we were serving alcohol but they were dressed horribly in black jeans with chains hanging off. This looked so tacky at a wedding. They actually stopped all of my guests as they came through the gate and counted the people in the cars to make sure we didn't go over the number. I even had guests tell me that they would question whether they had anyone hidden in their car! I couldn't believe it! I have had numerous past patrons tell me their horror stories as well. I would never reccomend this location.
