I. Cheekwood Estate & Gardens
Featuring one-of-a-kind botanical gardens, Wisteria Arbor overlooking the rolling hills of Tennessee, and the luxurious Reflecting Pool, this primarily outdoor venue has it all. Cheekwood Estate & Gardens offers elopement and micro wedding collections, depending on your what you’re looking for.
Going for a more romantic, urban vibe? Saidee Gallery at Noelle is one of my favorite spaces, with its stunning architecture and expansive windows allowing for plenty of beautiful light. Noelle is currently offering intimate cocktail wedding and intimate wedding collections, which include hors d’Oeuvres and drinks for your guests. This space is perfect for a winter wedding or if you’d just prefer an indoor location.
III. Riverwood Mansion
IV. Centennial Park
Not quite feeling the whole “wedding venue” route? Spring is right around the corner and Centennial Park’s blooms might be just the right fit. The Sunken Gardens are my favorite for a small ceremony. Solana and Javier got ready at the Thompson Hotel, hosted their small ceremony in the Sunken Gardens, and celebrated dinner with their close friends at Moto. Here’s more helpful info for getting married in the park.
V. CJ’s Off the Square
A Franklin staple, you’ll feel right at home at this garden-style venue. Check out CJ’s Off the Square’s elopement and intimate wedding collections here. You can make an entire weekend of your elopement or intimate wedding celebration by touring the sites of charming downtown Franklin and the nearby areas, including grabbing a wine tasting at Arrington Vineyards – hire your photographer to capture a pre or post-wedding lifestyle session with your family to remember the moment.
VI. A dreamy Airbnb or your own home
If you’re a homebody, with just the right rentals and florals, a backyard or in home wedding can be a cozy dream. And I mean, what’s more special than saying “I do” in your own home?
VIII. A nearby lookout, mountaintop, or hike you love
Dreaming of adventurous images like these? Driving just a few hours away, you can find epic overlooks and hikes that will make all of your adventurous elopement dreams come true. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and talk with your photographer about ideas.
