Weddings at Whitestone Country Inn take place in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, an expanded replica of the Anglican Chapel in Rugby, Tennessee. Symbolic elements are in all church buildings, and this one is no exception: three crosses dominate the ceiling, representing the three crosses at Calvary. The steeple and “gothic” windows point toward heaven, while three gables and steps to the platform represent the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The “rosette” stained glass window by Chris Myers depicts the staff and crown, illustrating the roles of Christ as King and Shepherd.
Just outside the Chapel is a gas-lit, tumbled marble heart-shaped courtyard with Gazebo overlooking the lake. The heart-shaped courtyard joins the Chapel to a large indoor reception and dining area in the Lion and the Lamb. The 200 seat formal dining room, along with the courtyard and Chapel make the perfect location for weddings and receptions – its housed concerts, presentations and over 500 weddings since its completion in 1999. Downstairs are dressing rooms for bride and groom, and a family parlor. This elegant wedding chapel in Tennessee is the ideal location for indoor weddings.
