One of the best things about living in Nashville is having hundreds of amazing event spaces + venues right here at your fingertips. There is always something going on and always something to do in here in Music City. One of the best aspects that we love about our job is being able to see all of those incredible spaces + venues, while also being a part of your incredible events. Hence I wanted to create a new blog series that focuses on some of our favorite venues in and around Nashville. It would be really hard to cram all of them into one post, so I figured I would just go down the list, alphabetically. In case you missed February's A team list, please click here! And if you missed March's B team list, please click here!
Exactly two months later and we're back to continue! Not all country clubs and not all on the countryside, but instead an even mix of big city venues with small town charm. These spaces are the chic + cool venues that make Music City one of the absolute best spots for local and destination weddings and events in 2017. There were so many incredible venues in middle Tennessee that fell into this category that I had to split them all up into two groups. Let's go round three with the second group of letter C..
Cheekwood | Nashville, TN
Cheekwood is Nashville’s premier wedding destination and the perfect setting for rehearsal dinners, showers, ceremonies and receptions. In lieu of a vast ballroom, Cheekwood offers unique indoor and outdoor spaces, including our botanical gardens and Museum of Art, perfect for a couple’s dream wedding. Cheekwood was voted “Best Place for a Wedding Reception” by the Nashville Scene in 2016. From intimate garden ceremonies to lavish receptions, Cheekwood can make any wedding a reality.
Cheval Manor | Murfreesboro, TN
Whether it's just the two of you, or a party of 150....we'd love to be a part of your wedding.

Plenty of room to move your ceremony indoors should rain "bless" your day! Connecting the Pavilion to the Rotunda is our Grapevine and Wisteria Arbor. Makes a beautiful aisleway for your Rotunda Wedding! The Cabana House dressing room for the ladies. Far from the crowd, a beautiful large area with chaise lounges, an 8' farm table complete with makeup mirrors, and several large mirrors: vital for looking your best on this big day!
