If you’re looking for an amazing Nashville wedding venue, you’re definitely looking in the right place! Nashville has grown and changed so much in the past decade, and whether you’re a native or just love to visit, you know it is an incredible place to celebrate with all your favorite people (and the love of your life, of course!). I’m also going to let you in on a little insider secret–after photographing all over the world for over a decade, I’ve got to tell you, there’s a special magic that exists in the Nashville wedding world. So let’s set the scene for all the celebrating and love with your perfect venue! Here’s 5 of my very favorites (plus a bonus, because you don’t want to miss this last one!)

1. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Ok can you even handle the gorgeous architecture here? The Schermerhorn is located just steps off Broadway, but is an elevated, elegant space all to itself. Things to love (especially for photos!): The stunning architecture inside and out, the courtyard for an outdoor ceremony space, and the light fixtures in the concert hall top my list of favorites! Plus, the concert hall is the perfect setting for a huge dance party celebration with your favorite people!

2. Cedarwood Weddings

Let’s take it the other direction and visit Cedarwood, the elegantly relaxed historic estate. Set in the rolling hills of Nashville, this Nashville wedding venue is perfect for those who love nature and also love an elevated vibe. Things to love: The gorgeous covered pavilion, the hidden away lakeside cedar grove, the sunsets amongst the rolling hills. Plus, it’s all inclusive which means you get to sit back and enjoy the process while Cedarwood’s team takes impeccable care of all the details!

3. The Cordelle 

This Nashville wedding venue gives it all: historic charm meets modern and garden vibes, with a huge range of flexibility to fit your style! The Cordelle is a beautiful blank slate that especially lends itself to some incredible floral design, if that’s your thing! Things to love: The brightness of the great hall, the tranquility of the garden space, the incredible getting ready space in the loft! Special mention also goes to their new beautiful oasis sister venue The Saint Elle for your larger celebrations!

4. Cheekwood Estate & Gardens

Cheekwood Estate & botanical gardens is a Nashville classic for a reason! This venue has a huge range of variety of settings both indoor and outdoor, gorgeous architecture, and of course, the stunning gardens. Things to love: The Wisteria Arbor (need I say more?!), the light and all the greenery, the historic architecture.


5. The Hermitage Hotel

Looking for an iconic Nashville wedding venue? This is the spot for you! The Hermitage Hotel is elevated, glamorous, and right in the heart of downtown. Things to love: the elevated vibe, the light in The Veranda, the outdoor architecture. Plus, it’s just steps away from the Legislative Plaza, another stunning spot for photos! 

6. Clementine Hall (Bonus!!)

The Nashville vibe doesn’t get any better than at Clementine Hall, just steps away from downtown Nashville and near the Nations. A reimagined church building, it brings in classic brick architecture mixed with STUNNING modern details and touches. Things to love: THE COURTYARD!! Such a gorgeous oasis and beautiful light. The different touches of wallpaper and textures, the beautiful getting ready areas.

The venues in Nashville are ever growing and changing and I’d love to hear–what are your favorites? Is yours on this list?

At home in nature. Ever-focused on exploring the light and joy in the in-between; found in the grounding moments that are a touch point of "you are here" in this journey of life. 

16 years of documenting weddings has taught me that a wedding day is so much more than just what it looks like. It's what it feels like. It's having the people who mean so much to you in one place. The intermingling of a life well lived, and the celebration of the next phase of your journey. It's my goal to create an impeccable experience for you, so that together we can create the stunning, heart-felt images that will support your memories for a life time to come.
