The Standard Knoxville: Wedding Venue Highlight

The Standard Knoxville is one of the top-rated and most beautiful wedding venues in all of Knoxville, Tennessee. Here are top 3 reasons why you should consider The Standard Knoxville for your Big Day:


The Standard Knoxville is a newly renovated, historic building located in the heart of downtown Knoxville. At first glance The Standard seems like an ordinary office building set amongst plenty of other buildings in the area. But on closer inspection, you will find its original beauty and charm.


The Standard takes pride in their venue’s rich history. It was originally built in 1930 for manufacturing. The team at the Standard has been working to transform the building back to its glory days.

Once you walk through the doors of this beautiful establishment you will know that you are in for something unique and fun! The intricate brickwork on every corner, or high ceilings with ornate moldings, are reminiscent of days gone by and untold stories. The exposed brick and concrete, vaulted ceilings, and large windows give off a sense of grandeur befitting a wedding venue like no other in Knoxville. Not to mention, that having such large sky lights everywhere makes for great pictures, ha!

Their outdoor patio area creeping vines that wrap around a visually interesting steel frame. It makes from very gorgeous portraits. Not to mention, the deep green of the vines makes most bridesmaids’ dresses pop!

You will find the atmosphere to be comforting and completely unique. I also find it to set a warm, cozy mood because of the lighting and colors of the brick. Because of its unique design features, it truly stands out as an icon for other businesses around town.


The Standard is available for your wedding ceremony and reception. With 10,000 square feet of flexible event space, you can plan large or small weddings, as well as rehearsal dinners and post-celebration parties. Parking is just across the street and there are trolleys, cabs, and even fun side-by-sides that are available to take your guests around downtown Knoxville.

You don’t have to get ready at another location either, because The Standard Knoxville as getting ready suites on-site! The girls can get ready on the second floor. I have to say, because of the ample natural light and room to move around, it’s a dream to photograph in. The guys can get ready in the groom’s suite, or “man cave,” downstairs. It’s always a plus when the guys are on-site. That means, you’ve minimized the likelihood that they’ll be late and complicate your day-of timeline. Can I get an amen?!

The Standard Knoxville is a one-of-a-kind wedding venue inspired by an urban, industrial feel. You must see it for yourself to really appreciate the amazing transformation that has been made bringing this historic building back to life. So, brides and grooms in Knoxville, Tennessee, you can’t miss visiting The Standard!
