Best Nashville Wedding Venues

August 13, 2019

One thing is certain, there is no shortage of Nashville wedding venues! Since I’ve spent a lot of time shooting weddings in a number of Nashville’s best wedding venues, I’ve put together a list of my top 12 favorite places to get married in Nashville. You can rest assured that the following venues are full of dreamy photo opps, so scroll through and find the location that’s just right for you and your fiancé!


Ravenswood Mansion

Ravenswood Mansion is a dreamy wedding venue located in Brentwood. I absolutely love shooting couples in the perfect lighting and gorgeous spaces here. Brides will love the beautiful bridal suite for getting ready with their girls while the guys all have a spacious groom’s suite of their own. Because you can get ready on site, and the venue features perfect backdrops for a variety of portraits, you can literally show up in the morning and not step foot off the premises until you make your grand exit. Talk about a no-stress wedding day set-up! You can personalize the space by orienting your ceremony towards or away from the mansion, with space for up to 400 guests. Ravenswood Mansion has everything you could ever want in a wedding venue and it is truly one of my all-time favorite wedding venues in Nashville! 


Scarritt Bennett Center

This gorgeous wedding venue, located near Vanderbilt University’s campus, can accommodate up to 300 guests. The impressive chapel features stunning architecture that makes a dramatic backdrop for your wedding ceremony. Thanks to the detailed architecture of the space, very little additional decorating is required. A few simple, small touches for personalization are all that are required.


Belle Meade Plantation

Belle Meade Plantation is one of the most elegant wedding venues in Nashville. The historic plantation is perfect for weddings up to 200 guests, with indoor and outdoor ceremony options available. The absolutely lovely Boxwood Garden is vibrant, lush, and picture-perfect. The venue is also pet-friendly, so you can include your favorite pup in your ceremony or pictures!



Clementine is a historic Nashville event hall located in the Lotte neighborhood on Charlotte Avenue. You can host your wedding ceremony and reception in the same room here. Your cocktail hour is conveniently in a separate room while the space is being flipped from ceremony to reception décor. The unique wallpaper throughout the venue will make sure your photos are one-of-a-kind! The lovely Richland Park is directly across the street which is convenient for portraits and wedding party photos.


Meadow Hill Farm

This pretty venue is located in Columbia, just a few minutes from Franklin. With space for up to 200 guests, this rustic and elegant wedding venue offers a lot. If you’re familiar with the capricious Nashville weather, you know planning an outdoor wedding can be a bit of a gamble. Luckily, Meadow Hill Farm includes a fantastic rain plan option with your reservation. They also have a pretty, all-white bridal cottage. With beautiful barn doors and lots of sweet details, this venue is for the bride dreaming of romantically rustic wedding photos! 


Riverwood Mansion

This Nashville wedding venue has options for everyone: indoor or outdoor ceremony spaces, all-inclusive packages, and space for 30-300 guests. The blue, textured walls inside the mansion are the perfect backdrop for dramatic photos, while the trellised archway is just what you want for romantic wedding pictures. 


Noelle Hotel

This boutique hotel offers tall ceilings and a white space that can be customized to virtually any style or taste. The Sadie Gallery can hold up to 120 guests and features onsite catering for an elegant, delicious plated dinner. There is a lovely lobby you can use for your cocktail hour while the room is being changed over for your reception.


The Loveless Barn

Located in Nashville on the same site as the famed Loveless Café, this pretty barn can be transformed for a number of different vibes. Their affordable all-inclusive package truly includes everything (except a photographer!) and the property includes a bridal room for primping and prepping before your ceremony. 


Barn in the Bend

Barn in the Bend is a modern rustic wedding venue located just outside of downtown Nashville in Madison. The chapel and barn hold up to 250 guests and they have a wonderful new bridal suit that just opened in April 2019. The venue comes with an event coordinator, is pet-friendly, and has a photo booth on site! 


Iriswoods Wedding and Event Venue

This historic log home in Mt. Juliet is a perfect blend of rustic and elegant. The beautiful field surrounding the venue is ideal for wedding photos. Brides typically host their receptions under a white tent and the versatility of Iriswoods makes it a great option for intimate or large weddings. 



Located in Dragon Park, Ruby is the sister-space to Clementine. With mid-century design and plentiful white space, this venue is totally customizable! Their pricing is easy to understand and includes all indoor and outdoor spaces. 



This brand-new, hot Nashville venue offers a whole lot of value. With room for up to 300 guests, couples who book at 14TENN also get the venue for a full 24 hours, which is incredibly rare and super convenient! You can bring in your own vendors at no extra charge, so you have the opportunity to truly curate your ideal Big Day!
