Southern Love: The Barn at Cranford Hollow Wedding & Event Venue
Nashville Venues, Nashville Wedding Vendors
Even though there are many great event & wedding venues around Nashville and Franklin, we do have a few that are favorites! The Barn at Cranford Hollow and its variety of amenities – including a state-of-the-art caterer’s kitchen, charming lighting, and beautiful bride and groom suites – makes it a top pick for hosting a wedding in Middle Tennessee. A family-owned and operated farm, The Barn at Cranford Hollow sits on 50 acres in Middle Tennessee. Built in 2015, the 6000+ square foot, Amish-built barn now plays host to a variety of event types & sizes. The design is modern and clean, making it a versatile space with which hosts can pull off the event of their dreams. To help you determine whether this venue aligns with your vision, here are a few ideas for hosting a wedding at Cranford Hollow.
Outdoor Ceremony & Portraits
What better way to say “I Do” than outdoors in the fresh air? The Barn at Cranford Hollow offers plenty of spaces for a wedding ceremony. Afterward, you’ll be able to make the most of seasonal foliage, which can be used for beautiful natural photo backdrops. In addition, Southern Events is proud to offer a range of rentals for your nuptials. Including a variety of geometric wedding backdrops, from an elegant hexagon to a boho-inspired triangle.
Elegant Neutral Interior
Although a barn, this event space is far from rustic. It is painted with neutral colors, including black and white, and features industrial details. Guests will enjoy an intimate ambiance, thanks to a high ceiling lit by an elegant chandelier and string lights. Within this space, you can achieve a variety of styles and themes, from boho glam to elegant minimalism.
Below you’ll see our romantic wedding set up, including sweetheart and reception tables. They are set with crisp linens, classic white china, and pink-rose gold accents, like our Copper Glass Chargers. Complementing the ultra-feminine and contemporary look are our always popular Acrylic Carrigan Side Chairs. A touch of whimsy is lent via our Cybil Glassware!
Covered Patio for Socializing
In addition to the indoor area, a covered patio exists on the side of the barn, overlooking adjacent land. It’s a beautiful spot to watch the sunset, as well as host a cocktail hour! During the daytime, guests will be able to stay out of the heat and easily travel in and out of the indoor event space. Making it an ideal location for your event bar, cocktail tables and lounge areas.
Here you can also feature our curated lounge packages, with options for a variety of event styles. Or, create a small food and beverage area, using our Loren Gold Bistro Table or Harpeth Bar. Moreso, create an interactive backdrop where guests can create a keepsake, using our trendy Boxwood Hedge Walls.

Wedding Tips: Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue with Cedarmont Farm
Nashville Venues, Nashville Wedding Vendors
The following is a guest post from one of our vendor partners, Cedarmont Farm. Their venue manager, Colleen Kelly shares her wedding tips and questions to ask your wedding venue. We encourage you to get in touch with their team about hosting an event and we hope you find the content helpful!
Congratulations, You’re engaged! Now what?? For many couples, the first part of wedding planning is choosing a wedding venue. Visiting venues is an exciting and fun part of wedding planning. With many different styles of wedding venues, it can help to narrow down what kind of venue you’re looking for: rustic, modern, rooftop, or historic. The options are endless! After choosing a wedding venue style fitting the look you envision, it’s important that it fits your budget and offers the features you want.
We have helped lots of engaged couples at Cedarmont Farm create the wedding of their dreams. We do this by making sure couples asking the right questions so we ensure we’re a good fit. These are just a few of the questions to ask your wedding venue that will help you decide if your wedding venue is a match!
1. In the case of weather, what is the rain plan?
We love an outdoor ceremony but in Tennessee, you never really know what the weather will be like. When planning an outdoor ceremony, ask your venue what options there are for rain and when you need to confirm your rain plan. Do you use the reception space, with chairs set up for a ceremony or California style with guests sitting at their tables? If you are flipping the wedding reception space, confirm where guests will go, how long it takes, and who’s responsible for the flip?
For example, at Cedarmont Farm, our rain plan is in front of our large windows in the event barn. Chairs are set up for the ceremony and then our staff flips the space for the reception. Meanwhile, guests enjoy cocktail hour on the covered patio. Our patio also has vinyl sides to enclose it, in the case of wind or heavy rain. We require a 24-hour notice for our rain plan in order to set up.

2. What is your vendor policy? Can I bring in my own vendors?
Different wedding venues have different policies on vendors, so asking what their policies are is key. Some venues require that vendors are chosen from a preferred vendor list. Other venues require pre-approval for any vendors that you hire. Some venues offer “all-inclusive” packages where all your vendors are contracted by the venue. If the venue is all-inclusive or has a mandatory preferred list, be sure to ask if there is a fee to bring in other vendors of your choosing.
At Cedarmont Farm, we recommend choosing vendors from our preferred list. All are great at what they do, meet our pre-approval conditions, and have worked at the venue before. However, we do allow clients to bring in pre-approved outside vendors. Here we get copies of their insurance and for certain vendors having them sign our policy form as well as visit our venue. All of this is to make sure that your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible.
3. Do you require event insurance?
Most venues in our area require the couple to purchase wedding insurance, including Cedarmont Farms. Even if your venue does not, we HIGHLY recommend it. A big party of 100+ people with an open bar… what could go wrong? Unfortunately, a lot. And if your venue has you buying and bringing the alcohol on-site for a bar service to serve, make sure ‘host liquor liability’ is included in your insurance policy. This gives you some liability coverage for providing the alcohol. The venue and your vendors should all have their own liability insurance as well. Get special event insurance from a company like The Event Helper, Eventsured, and Wedsafe. At the time of this post, it was about $150 for a wedding with 125 guests.
4. How long is the venue rental?
When can vendors set up? When can the bridal party arrive? Can items be left overnight or dropped off the day before? What time is the ceremony? Clean-up time is often built into the rental time so make sure you get clarity on that. If you are planning on having a wedding party get ready at the venue, confirming there’s enough time before the ceremony on-site to get ready as well as photos. For example, at Cedarmont Farm, our rental period starts at 10 am. The wedding party and vendors may come in at this time. The event must end (per noise ordinance) by 10 pm and clean-up must be done by 11 pm. Ceremonies normally start at 4 or 5 depending on the time of year and sunset.
5. Can I have sparklers for an exit? What about fire pits or floral chandeliers?
Why is this one of the important questions to ask your wedding venue? We all have that one décor item on our wedding Pinterest board that we definitely want at our wedding. But not everything is allowed at every venue. When installing decor at the venue, there may be certain restrictions on what can be set up or who can set it up. Even though your Aunt made you a custom fabric backdrop, the venue may have restrictions preventing her from nailing it into the venue’s wall (better to rent a ceremony backdrop from Southern Events to hang this on!). If sparklers are a must make sure you ask them as many venues don’t allow them for safety reasons.
At Cedarmont Farm, we do still allow sparklers for the exit (subject to change – we gotta keep you and your guests safe!). We don’t allow confetti or glitter though.
6. What can I expect my overall wedding cost to be at your wedding venue? What fees do I need to plan for?
This question can help you avoid a lot of stress later in your planning. Similar to buying a house that maxes out your budget – leaving you “House Poor”, you can also be “Venue Poor”. Spending all of your money renting the venue of your dreams leaves you feeding your guests saltines and water. Not a recipe for a memorable wedding. Be sure to ask prospective venues what the average total wedding budget is for their clients? Most venues should be able to answer this question to some extent, and if they can’t, it’s likely a red flag.
There are many line items in a wedding budget. One larger expense is catering – we recommend doing some research here before committing to their venue. Also, ask a venue what other fees you need to expect as well. Sales tax, operating fee, gratuity, venue insurance, and security fees are some of the most common. At Cedarmont Farm, we want your entire wedding to be what you envision and we’re happy to delve into your budget to let you know what to expect.
7. What parking is available at the venue?
When you are looking at rural locations, parking is an often overlooked question to ask your wedding venue! So don’t forget! Cars can get stuck in the mud when parking on grass and it has rained. Additionally, if parking isn’t lit, your guests will have a tough time getting to their cars in the dark (especially when wearing heels). If you have any guests who need ADA parking you will want to ask about that as well. And for any guests who indulge a little too much, can cars be left overnight? At Cedarmont Farm, we have ADA parking as well as a gravel lot that is lit for guests. We do allow cars to be left overnight but they must be picked up between 8 and 10 am the following day.
8. Do you have lodging on-site? Are there hotels close to the venue?
Overnight accommodations are always a bonus at a wedding venue but many do not have them. However, your venue should be able to tell you how close they are to hotels and lodging options. If you’re having lots of guests coming from out of town, having lodging close by is really important. As is the availability of transportation for any guests who need a ride back to their hotel. We love when our clients hire a shuttle to get their guests back to their hotel. If you’re concerned about your budget, skip the favors and the koozies, and give them a safe ride instead.
9. What are the rules for alcohol?
There are lots of questions to ask your venue regarding alcohol. Does your venue allow liquor or beer and wine only? Do they have a limit to the type of bar you’re allowed (cash bar) or how long it’s open? Does alcohol have to be purchased through the venue or do you bring it in? If you supply it, do you need to hire a bar service to serve it? If you are serving alcohol are you required to pay for security to be at the event? Some venues require shuttles if there is an open bar.
10. What is the setup and cleanup process? Will the staff handle it? What are we responsible for at your wedding venue?
Here is where details can fall through the cracks, leaving you to managing things at your wedding. Key questions to ask to avoid this: Does your venue include a day of coordinator? If not, do they require you to hire one? Will the venue staff help with the setup of décor items or do they just set up tables and chairs? For cleanup do you just need to clear your items out at the end of the night or are you expected to mop and sweep the floors? Where does trash go? Is that your responsibility? All of these things are good to know on the front end so you can fill in the gaps where you may need additional help.
Be sure to also ask about wedding planning add-ons or all-inclusive packages that take all the planning stress away, both before and the day of your event. This is something we offer at Cedarmont Farm beyond basic support. We’re happy to tell you all about them – just ask us!

Southern Love: Pinewood Retreat
Nashville Venues, Nashville Wedding Vendors
If you’re on the hunt for an all-inclusive farm wedding venue, look no further than Pinewood Retreat! Located in College Grove, Tennessee (adjacent to Franklin, TN), it is surrounded by lush agricultural surroundings. The contemporary venue, however, is suitable for a range of events, whether you want to host a chic open-air event or a modern indoor celebration. To help spark some creativity, here are just a few ideas for hosting a wedding at Pinewood Retreat.
Lush Outdoor Ceremony
For couples who want to eliminate travel between multiple venues, Pinewood Retreat functions as a dual ceremony and reception site. Host your nuptials in a private magnolia tree garden, where you will enjoy a backdrop of organic greenery and mature trees. Our popular Cross-back chairs are a gorgeous choice for this wedding venue, as shown below. Or opt for our Classic Fruitwood Folding Chairs.
Poolside Cocktail Hour
Following your ceremony, treat your guests to a cocktail hour in the nearby pavilion. It opens out onto a pristine blue pool, making it a fun location for warm-weather celebrations. A stylish bar designed to match the hedge wall and works well with nature-inspired celebrations! This spacious area can be set up with a number of bistro tables or lounge area, where guests can enjoy a drink and mingle. To complement the modern space and bright pool, consider a set of our beautiful blue linens.
Chic Tented Reception
Capable of hosting up to 300 of your friends and family, the manicured lawn is perfect for a tented reception. Here our Hexagon Frame Tent looks stunning! Beneath it, there is plenty of room for round dining tables, as well as a Plank Wood dance floor for a long night of dancing. The tablescape shown below features our Alabaster China, Hammered Flatware, Pure Glassware, and white linens. A chic design such as this is a beautiful way to contrast the lush lawn!
The open space at Pinewood Retreat is especially ideal for those who want to incorporate lounge areas. Placed outside of the tent, it is a great way to encourage guests to roam and mingle. You can take advantage of our existing lounge packages, or create one of your own!
Designated Children’s Area
To accommodate younger guests, consider a stylish children’s seating area. Create a fun designated dining and play area on the expansive lawn beneath our Hexagon Tent. Featuring children’s furniture, such as our Fruitwood Farm Table and Cross-back chairs, it is cozy yet stylish. Our team would love to help you come up with a unique children’s area that aligns with your unique wedding style or theme!

Style Inspiration: Modern Romance at the Estate at Cherokee Dock
Events and Style Shoots, Nashville Wedding Vendors, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration, Vintage Prop Shoppe
Modern romance was the vision for our inspiration style shoot at the breathtaking Estate at Cherokee Dock in Nashville, TN. The shoot featured a dreamy pink, white and gold color palette as ee partnered with the wedding planning team from It Takes Two. Pairing romantic vintage rentals with sleek, modern rentals to create this look, we’re in love with the results!
White draping under a gorgeous magnolia tree on the estate provided the perfect canvas for a romantic outdoor affair. For our garden dining area, we paired vintage inspired Adeline Dining Chairs with Ivory Luxe Linens for texture and romantic style. Our table setting included our elegant Gatsby Champagne Coupe, Madison Glassware, and charming Darcy China combined with metallic modern accents. Our gold Austin Flatware, Vera Floral Gold Accent Dessert Plate, and Medallion Gold Glass Charger provided just enough sparkle while a beautiful floral centerpiece by Petals and Fields tied everything together.
For the ceremony, Acrylic Ghost Chairs provided an unexpected touch of modern style to the ceremony, completing the marriage modern and romantic. A few of our favorite vintage pieces, including our Vintage Harper Couch and Leona Coffee Table, were used to create intimate lounge area while our Acrylic Rectangle Containers tied back to the other modern touches.
The fabulous cake by Lillian Lane Bakery was displayed on an elegant White Chiffon Runner over our Isabel Oval Table, and surrounded the gorgeous confection with candlelight, set off in our Davis Glass Cylinders. So much to love!

We had the most amazing time at City Winery Nashville‘s Open House, where our distinct wedding rentals helped redefine the unique downtown Nashville wedding space. We love coming here and how our different rentals can change the space – check out the previous open house we partnered on at City Winery! This time, our team mixed modern elements with rustic foundations and some of our newest rentals creating a jaw-dropping design for weddings and couples.
Upstairs, our Adeline Dining Chairs were displayed with City Winery’s large family style table. The rustic vibe of the wooden furniture was accented beautifully by modern place settings, including the Pure Glassware, Rouge Round Chargers, and Earthen China in Alabaster and Stone. As a centerpiece, votive candles and garland were placed in our new Acrylic Rectangle Container.

Nashville Event Venue Spotlight: CJ’s Off the Square
Nashville Wedding Vendors
Nashville & Franklin offer an endless number of stunning event & wedding venues – from classic to unique, or grand to intimate, there’s a perfect location for whatever event or wedding you are hosting. We’re excited to feature some of our favorite local partners, starting with a gorgeous outdoor garden wedding venue that is exquisitely Southern.
CJ’s Off the Square is a gorgeous garden wedding venue located in the heart of downtown Franklin, TN. Boasting an intimate property and charming garden, we love that it’s an all-inclusive venue with sweet and historic charm that lends itself to any couple’s style while being effortlessly romantic, no matter the season.
More Than a Garden
CJ’s Off the Square is known for its magical garden but has so much more to offer. The property features a historic house, including a gorgeous bridal suite and wine cellar, and an outdoor covered event pavilion that looks over the garden.
The Event Pavilion keeps guests cool under the shade, or warm next to heaters while still being surrounded by the greenery of the garden. Plus, it allows for a convenient built-in rain plan. We also love that the entire venue boasts neutral colors, meaning it is a blank canvas for whatever classic, whimsical, or modern style couples dream up.
With space to accommodate events of up to 135 people, CJ’s Off the Square is perfect for couples looking for an intimate celebration, rich in details and full of love (the kind where you can chat with each and every one of your guests). While the garden is a romantic spot for your ceremony, it can be transformed with lounge seating for the reception, maintaining the intimate vibe throughout your event. The historic home also offers additional space where you and your new husband or wife can escape to for a few stolen kisses.
We love how couples are incorporating their fur-babies into their wedding celebrations and CJ’s Off the Square allows pups to join in on the fun! Dogs are allowed during the ceremony at this pet-friendly venue which is perfect seeing that they make adorable ring bearers! Learn more about including your pet in your wedding on their blog.
Wedding Planner Included
Most importantly, we love that wedding packages at CJ’s Off the Square come with a personal planner to help couples coordinate their dream wedding day. The team CJ’s Off the Square are there to help couples with their design, budget, and logistics to ensure your day flows beautifully while letting your personalities to really shine through. Already have your own planner? Not a problem! Their team is also more than happy to collaborate with other planners and event designers.
We’re proud to partner with CJ’s Off the Square to help couples design beautiful wedding days. Our rentals help customize the space while still being surrounded by a romantic Southern garden. Interested in learning more? Visit their website for package and pricing information.

Upscale Picnic Wedding at Green Door Gourmet
Nashville Wedding Vendors, Real Nashville Weddings, Southern Events Products
Shannon and Tom are two wonderful New Yorkers who wanted to throw a larger-than-life Southern picnic wedding. Their whimsical day was held at Green Door Gourmet, a working farm in West Nashville. For the ceremony, family and friends were invited to have a seat in our White Folding Chairs while the newlyweds exchanged vows under the Cedar Arbor. Guests were then treated to a cocktail hour with our Bistro Tables draped and tied with a Slate Poly linen.
For the reception, this grand soiree with a large guest list took advantage of the duel-level barn seating with round tables upstairs and rectangular tables on the main level. The Slate Blue was carried into the reception, accented by a Red and White Check Napkin, creating a whimsical nod to the farm venue. The newlyweds sat amongst their guests in Cross-Back Chairs and enjoyed their first meal as Mr. and Mrs. with our Cameron Flatware.
Thanks to the ladies at Modern Vintage Events for pulling all the fun details together. The wedding design delighted not only the newlyweds and their guests, as Shannon and Tom’s big day was featured on Style Me Pretty! Such a fun and upscale take on a farm wedding. Thanks to Cassidy Carson for the stunning photos!

A Very Marry Occasion at CJ’s Off the Square
Events and Style Shoots, Nashville Wedding Vendors, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
We are always so excited to be a part of A Very Marry Occasion, where Nashville’s top wedding vendors come together for a truly stunning style showcase. The theme was Organic Luxe and CJ’s Off the Square was the perfect venue – the outdoor garden space lends itself perfectly to being both organic and luxe with ease! Here’s how we made it all happen:
Cross-back Chairs in natural wood were paired with the Grayson Farm Tables for a stunning dining design. To add more luxe, our Hob Nob Glassware collection was on full display with both the water goblet and the wine glass giving a vintage vibe without being too whimsical. All this combined with our Abby Fine Silver flatware and a gorgeous Mediterranean Satin Linen made for a stunning styled tablescape, only to be enhanced even more by the stunning floral centerpieces by Enchanted Florist – swoon!
To mix up the seating arrangements, our 65″ Round Farm Table was incorporated into the floor plan, opposite of the sweetheart table. Speaking of the sweetheart table, a mini White-Wash Farm Table was used with our Tessa Tufted Loveseat – the perfect way for a bride and groom to enjoy their first married meal together. Our feminine Darcy Bone China next to the Hob Knob glassware and Gatsby Champagne Coupe were the perfect touches to the tablescape, adding more elegance to an already luxe design.
In the garden area, we incorporated the Farm Style Bistro Tables for easy but stylish mingling. We love when couples opt to keep the decor all in the family – the various farm style tables are beautiful together, yet purposefully unique enough to not look too uniform.
Also in the garden, we made sure to provide comfortable outdoor seating by bringing in our Sutton Furniture Collection. The Mediterranean color was the perfect way to tie in those blue linens on the dining table, keeping every part of the decor and theme beautifully cohesive. The Enchanted Florist helped elevate our rentals again by placing thoughtful low arrangements on the furniture, bringing out the colors of the gorgeous garden and the Organic Luxe theme itself.
Thank you so much to Phindy Studios for the photos! It was a very marry occasion, indeed.
Thank you to all the vendors involved! We love working with each one of you. Wolfe Gourmet Cakes, CJ’s Off the Square, Enchanted Florist, McConnell Hospitality Group, Phindy Studios Photography, and Premier Entertainment Company.
