Winstead Events started as dream between two women who simply loved to plan parties and spend time with one another. When they received the chance to own a property such as the Cardwell Manor they knew their dream was quickly turning into a reality. 

Winstead Events is a partnership between Teresa Winstead and her daughter Amanda White.

Teresa Winstead has been married to her high school sweetheart Richard Winstead for 35 years and they have two grown children and two grand children. They live in Kodak and love to travel, spoil their dog Phoebe, and watch baseball. Teresa has an extensive background in marketing, party planning, human resources, and sales.

Amanda White has two small children, Emerson (5) and Adler (3) with her husband of 10 years, Lee White; a teacher and football coach at Pigeon Forge High School. Amanda and Lee love to travel and play with their children and dogs. Amanda's background is rooted in communications and technology, managment, sales, and conference coordination. 


Our MIssion

When we started planning our venue we knew we wanted it based off three principles: flexibility, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Flexibility-While we offer many services, we also pride ourself on being an open venue. When it comes to your event, it is just that- YOURS. We will do it all or we will do nothing or a combination of both, the choice is yours. 

Quality- Our product is our ability to maintain our property and efficiently coordinate any event. At Winstead Events we will ensure that Cardwell Manor, both inside the house and the grounds, are kept in pristine condition, and that our responsibilities are completed correctly. 

Customer Satisfaction- between both of us we have 30 years of working face-to-face with customer and those years have taught us the importance of reputation, referrals, and recommendations. We will always strive to make each event perfect, and ensure our customers have the best experience possible at our property. And if we don't get it right the first time, we promise we will make it right.
