Private Events

Debuting at the apex of the Gilded Age, Adelia’s Westwood was central to a life built on a love for all things beautiful. The property offers beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces that encourage creative and unique event experiences. Westwood is located just minutes from downtown Knoxville at the gateway to charming and historic Sequoyah Hills.

Memories for a Lifetime

“Their wedding ceremony took place on the front steps of Historic Westwood, and each of their guests had a candle. After Janet and Andrew lit their unity candle, they shared the flame with all of their guests. It was so beautiful looking around the ceremony with everyone’s candles lit! After they said “I do” and kissed, they ran down the aisle full of twinkling candles”. – JoPhoto

“I’m sure you’ve noticed that this is like the 4th or 5th Historic Westwood bridal session I’ve shot. I love this venue so much…”. – Amanda May
