What Our Brides Say About The Cumberland House



The Cumberland House is the perfect venue for a wedding! Whether it's the ceremony, reception or both, you won't be disappointed. You will fall in love with the venue the moment you see it. Every detail of Garden Pavilion was done to make a beautiful outdoor reception area. There are even hidden electrical outlets for vendors to use for decorations, DJ, etc. One of my favorites parts of The Cumberland House is the Stardust room! Words do not even describe how beautiful it is and how perfect the room is for the bridal party to get ready in! The owner, Mrs. Kathi, is awesome to work with. She works with the bride to make sure every last detail is dream worthy. You will not regret having your any part of your wedding at The Cumberland House!

The Cumberland House was the perfect venue for our summer wedding! Kathi was on top of everything and was so helpful. She immediately responds when you need something! Our guests are still telling us how beautiful our wedding was!

The Cumberland House was a dream come true! Kathi was a pleasure to work with and was extremely responsive. I never had to wait around for her help with any questions I had. She was there right away. I appreciated that so much; it took away a lot of stress when I was planning last minute. This venue is breathtaking and I knew I had to have my wedding there from the first time I toured it months ago. The day was perfect and we were given so many compliments, on the venue alone.

I absolutely love the diversity within the house and the yard. Every corner has a different look and texture for photographs. With the many different “rooms”, it was easy to have every wedding event at The Cumberland House without it becoming repetitive. Even with a wedding as small as ours (~50-60 people) it did not feel like the space was too overwhelming. Kathi was an absolute joy to work with, willing and able to reschedule appointments, if necessary. Her genuine nature and kind spirit add a breath of fresh air in the midst of the wedding planning process. The work she has done to build such a wonderful venue has paid off, and it made my wedding what it was. I am thankful I was able to book this lovely venue when I did.

The Cumberland House was the perfect location for my wedding. I was searching for an outdoor venue that was not a barn. I absolutely loved the charm and elegance of the house, the garden and the pavilion. I had bridal portraits taken at the venue that are amazing! The house, the gardens, the pavilion - are all so beautiful. It is the ideal venue to an outdoor/garden wedding.

The bridal suite, located upstairs, is so beautiful. All white, comfortable and equipped for the bridal party to dress. My bridesmaids and I had so much fun getting ready together. Plus, the photos taken in the bridal suite are stunning.

Kathy, the owner/host is so accommodating and helpful. She made the planning process so much easier. We used a lot of the vendors she recommended and were very thankful for the suggestions she offered.

The Cumberland House is a great value compared to other venues. The house is rented for the weekend, so that allows plenty of time to set up and clean up. We had the rehearsal dinner at The Cumberland House, which was convenient for attendants and saved money. The Cumberland House also provides an assortment of tables and chairs, which makes it an even better value.

I highly recommend The Cumberland House for a wedding venue. It is a hidden gem in Jackson, TN.

We were beyond grateful to have chosen The Cumberland House for our big day! We were welcomed by Mrs. Kathi (owner) and felt right at home. She was very responsive if there was ever a question in need. The Stardust room was absolutely stunning and had plenty of room for my bridesmaids and me to get ready for the day. There are also so many options to have your ceremony in the gardens. It was also a plus to have the garden pavilion as well. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to share our big day with our friends and family!

There aren't enough words to describe how great The Cumberland House and Mrs. Kathi Leatherwood are!

The house and property itself is breathtaking and made the perfect venue for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception. So many people complimented the beautiful landscaping and the convenience of the pavilion, while the bridal room and front foyer made stunning pictures!

I loved how we had so many different options to set up the layout and flow of our wedding the way we wanted, even with the possibility of bad weather. I almost couldn't decide where I wanted things to go because the possibilities seemed endless!
But on top of that, Mrs. Kathi is so friendly and accommodating! The Cumberland House was the first venue we looked at, and she was a big part of the reason we decided to book it. Jackson is honored to have someone who cares so much about our city's history and preservation. The hard work does not go unnoticed! Thank you to The Cumberland House and Mrs. Kathi for making October 7, 2017 the best day ever!

Kathi was just a doll to work with. She's absolutely charming, responsive, professional and just wonderful to talk to. You can tell she has thought about accommodating her brides and making sure that they are happy and she has even thought about how the design and layout of her place would fit into the scheme and wishes of her brides--even allowing the lighting to be changed in the pavilion if needed. The place is beautiful and immaculately kept. The grounds were the perfect backdrop for my outdoor autumn wedding. Being that this is an older property, you can't add anything to the walls, but this is to be expected. Oh and please take full advantage of the wrap-around veranda--MAH-VE-LOUS! I can't wait to find a reason in the near future to be able to rent this place again!!! You'll love working with Kathi--I promise!

Kathi Leatherwood and The Cumberland House were wonderful! Kathi was so easy to work with, and was so accommodating. She has very specific guidelines that allowed for planning, and had a great checklist for both before and after the wedding. TCH was a beautiful place that allowed us to have an amazing rehearsal dinner and wedding!

The Cumberland House is a gorgeous venue with so many options for how to set things up for your event. Kathi is a wonderful hostess and so helpful throughout the entire process. Being able to have the venue for the entire weekend and having tables and chairs included on-site were huge pluses for my husband and I. The historic home is beautifully preserved while modern updates have been added in a way that flows beautifully into a cohesive unit. I would highly recommend the Cumberland House to anyone looking to host an event in the Jackson area!

This was the only venue we looked at & we were sold from the moment we pulled up! Mrs. Kathi is SO sweet & she really outdid herself getting this venue put together for ease of her brides & grooms. Kinda sad my wedding is over already because it was the absolute perfect place to celebrate!
