Event Testimonials


"Reva & Lenora are amazingly respectful hosts and did everything and anything they could to make our wedding day perfect. The Inn grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and efficiently organized. Setup for the wedding was a breeze! They also custom designed a guest signing scroll   that added a very unique and classy touch to our wedding day. It was great to be able to have the grounds to ourselves for the entire weekend. We love everything about Compassionate Expressions and long to return for a future stay!"   Zachary & Adam, Knoxville, Tennessee



"We still bask in the pure joy, love and enchantment that suffused our weekend at CE. It was not by chance that we found you and I will always be so grateful that you helped us have the kind of celebration that we had envisioned. It was truly a magical wedding and all of our friends are still talking about it.  They say it was the best wedding they have ever been to!   We send you so much gratitude." Namaste from - Beth & Hank Bruno, Blacksburg, South Carolina



"Your venue truly helped make our wedding a memorable experience and made for a beautiful setting for the event. Being able to be onsite the entire weekend made setting up and breaking down very convenient and allowed for us to have our perfect DIY wedding. We really appreciate all of the kindness and hospitality that we received. We also appreciated that we were allowed to take the event into our own hands and were able to use our own food, music, etc. (unlike many venues we looked at that try to control various aspects of the process). We really can't express how  beautiful this site is and how great the energy surrounding it is. We can't wait to come back and spend a weekend and be able to take advantage  of the healing services.  Thank you so much for everything, we had a wonderful experience and truly appreciate everything."    Beth & Greg,  Spartanburg, South Carolina

"We just wanted to thank you for allowing us to have our Wedding at Compassionate Expressions.  The mountains were simply beautiful, the grounds were excellent, and the pavilion was great and worked out perfect for us.  Everything was Awesome. This is the best place to have a wedding."    Mark  & Tonya Karnes, Jamestown, KY



"I wanted to reach out to you and say thank you. Our wedding was beautiful, fun, and easy. All of our guests had such a wonderful time in the pavilion, and they loved the amazing view! It was the perfect place for us to host our DIY wedding, and I am so glad we found you! We had so much fun dancing and laughing the night away, and I would not have changed a thing. You were so patient and understanding throughout the whole planning process, and it made our day so special. Thank you again for everything!" Lauren & Ernie Miles, Leicester, NC
