Take The Virtual Tour

Based in the valley of the beautiful East Tennessee Mountains, our team at Castleton Farms has been helping couples celebrate their special day with sophistication and elegance since 2009. We at Castleton Farms would love to help you collect an array of individuals who feel more like friends than professionals, offering you the best wedding experience. From elemental design and planning to vendor referrals and budget management, we’re here to help guide, organize, and simplify your event. Let us serve as your assistant and host while you take in each moment, from saying yes to stepping into the getaway car as the new Mr. and Mrs.


The farm was purchased in 2005 by Doctors Meade and Kathleen Edmunds. Meade was searching for a farm that reminded him of his childhood. From the first moment he wandered down the long driveway and locked his eyes on the Greek Antebellum Manor standing tall at the top of the hill, his heart raced and he knew this was the one. From building the Southern Pavilion, to renovating the Carriage House, the couple has poured their heart and soul into making this farm perfect for you. Since then, they have had the pleasure of watching 2 of their 3 children also get married at the farm.


“It holds such a special place in our hearts”

- Dr. Edmunds.

Executive Director


Principle Planner

In 2006, Danyelle accepted a group sales position at a small cabin rental company in Pigeon Forge, at which time she never imagined it would lead to coordinating and executing weddings. Since then, she has successfully constructed 4 wedding departments at various companies in addition to having hundreds of blissfully happy Brides! With over 12 years of experience in the Event Planning Industry, the last 8 of which focused primarily on weddings, Danyelle strives to provide a stress- free experience for each Bride, and prides herself in making sure every detail is just as they have imagined it.  “Not many people can say that they wake up and enjoy going to work, but I truly do. I have a helping heart and I love helping Brides! My biggest piece of advice, the day goes by so fast, enjoy every minute of it and don’t stress!”
