  • The Perfect Little Venue

    We had our rehearsal dinner here and were amazed by how perfect it was. Scott took care of us the entire time we were there; the food was home-cooked and absolutely delicious and the venue was beautifully decorated. We couldn't have asked for a better rehearsal dinner. Scott stayed within our budget and was wonderful to work with. Highly recommend!!

    The property Local Ark stands on is gorgeous. Surrounded by blooming trees, green grass and blue skies, there is a sense of peace, ease and beauty to this venue. It's also very close to the heart of Franklin and Nashville, which is a bonus for me! The owners were so kind and helpful as well. My wedding party is a bit too large to book here, but I would definitely consider hosting my bridal shower, engagement party or photoshoot in the barn!
