There is a certain charm to spaces where old meets new. And this style is particularly popular in Downtown Nashville, where event venues are rich with history and the original architecture is celebrated. As is the case with The Clementine! A spacious event hall, it was redesigned and rebuilt in 2018. Despite the recent renovations, however, its design remains true to its origins. Urban yet elegant, it is a versatile space in which couples can pull off the celebration of their dreams. To help you determine whether this venue aligns with your vision, we’re sharing a few ideas for hosting a wedding at The Clementine, featuring our trendy event rentals.
Say “I Do” at Adelaide Hall
An original 1889 church sanctuary, Adelaide Hall is the largest of Clementine’s spaces. Soaring wood beam ceilings, brick walls, hickory floors, massive mid-century chandeliers, and blown glass and steel gothic windows make a statement in this stunning space. Their famous pipe organ is perfect for a sweet ceremony. Decorate the stage with florals or a Wrought Iron Arch in front of the organ. Or use our Chuppah with drapery to soften the space. For ceremony seating, our classic Black Fruitwood Folding Chairs will offer some contrast. While our Davis Glass Cylinders will add a touch of modern elegance to the aisle. Alternatively, feature our Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs and layered vintage or cowhide rugs to create a chic contemporary look.
Host an Elegant Urban Reception
Following a ceremony, Adelaide Hall can be quickly flipped for an equally elegant reception. The urban event space is a gorgeous backdrop for a seated dinner. Whether you prefer to feature our round or rectangle Farm Wood Tables. Here you can pull off a timeless neutral palette, to complement the warm-toned walls and floors. Or, incorporate fun pops of color, via luxe linens and stylish serving ware.
At 2,400 square feet, there is plenty of space for catering and white dance floor (with your monogram, of course!). Unless you’d prefer to let the natural wood floors shine! In addition to the beautiful pipe organ, other key areas are the venue’s two stages. Each feature concert-quality audio, video, and decorative LED lighting round things out. Making Clementine an ideal wedding venue if you have plans for live entertainment or a band.
An Intimate Cocktail Hour
What’s better than a venue with a dedicated social space? The Little Bird Lounge features built-in bistro tables and an elegant 20-foot marble bar. Perfect for a casual cocktail hour! An irregularly shaped room with original brickwork and arched windows, it’s a memorable backdrop for a wedding lounge. More specifically, the Pearce Lounge Furniture — a modular sofa easily manipulated to fit within any space. It pairs beautifully with our Gold Hammered Coffee Table.
When the weather is nice, take advantage of their Brash Courtyard, easily accessed through the lounge. Outfit the concrete-walled patio with trendy bistro tables and chairs. Such as our Acrylic Casper Square Back Barstool or Mid Century White Barstool. For an extra luxe look, be sure to grab a set of our Velvet Linens! They look especially charming during the fall, when the surrounding foliage is at its peak.

An essential piece of decor for a wedding ceremony is a backdrop! Often complimented with fresh florals and greenery, it will not only help frame the bride and groom but serve as a beautiful backdrop for photographs. Take a look at our wedding backdrop rentals, with options for every type of event style and theme! From more traditional pieces to modern options.
Fiona Ivory Mantle
A unique option for wedding ceremony decor, our Fiona Ivory Mantle is a romantic piece. With its vintage design and soft white color, it will complement most any theme. You can dress this piece up with florals, or by placing candles in our cylindrical glass vases at the base.
At Southern, our goal is to be able to serve couples of every type and religion! Our wedding chuppah is a beautiful piece consisting of a classic square frame decorated with white drapery. It can easily be dressed up with greenery, or you might tie back the draping with smaller floral arrangements.
Another popular option is our greenery backdrop rental, or a Boxwood Wall. This piece is our most versatile due to the fact that it can be easily customized with a variety of decor. Such as florals or a neon sign! We also have three different color bases available to ensure our grass wall will complement your color palette or wedding theme.
For more traditional couples we had to include a Wood Cross in our inventory. This simple but elegant piece is made of a light-colored wood with a beautiful grain. Couples often choose to decorate this piece with a long piece of drapery or a floral garland.
Wrought Iron Arch
Another of our wedding arch rentals, this Wrought Iron Arch is a gorgeous choice for ceremonies indoors or out. Dress is up with greenery or drapery for a sophisticated look. As with our Metal Ceremony Ring, this piece is perfect for a modern garden wedding.
Looking for a more modern ceremony backdrop? Consider one or several of our rugs! This is a great option if you want to show off an existing backdrop at your venue, whether it be indoors or out. A rug is a simple way to frame a space and add a little bit of color. We have a variety of options for different themes, including vintage and cowhide rugs.

Garden weddings are popular themes, especially during the warmer months of the year. As we sit and dream with couples, we hear their love for the romantic feel this theme offers. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of seeing garden weddings come together in a myriad of ways, and we have fallen head over heels for the whimsical palettes and charming event design. Keep reading to get inspired by our take on the modern garden wedding, featuring sleek and sophisticated rentals that make for an incredibly chic celebration!
Sleek and Chic Tables
This modern take on garden weddings can be achieved by bringing in bright rentals featuring geometric shapes that contrast dramatically with the freeform nature of, well, nature. Outfit your tables in colorful linens that will POP against a lush garden setting. For balance, feature our Harlin Dining Chairs or Cross-Back Chairs, made of natural wood. If you prefer an equally romantic but vintage-inspired look, consider our Antique White Bentwood Chairs.
Dreamy Velvet Details
Masculine elements, such as monochromatic color schemes contrast beautifully against soft florals and greenery. All white or all black furniture against a dreamy, floral aesthetic is both masculine and modern! Although, we’re still a fan of lighter palettes that complement whimsical florals. You can achieve a luxe but chic look by featuring textured details, namely in the form of velvet linens! Some of our current favorite colors include bold blue hues and romantic pinks and purples!
Elegant Social Areas
When hosting an event outdoors you tend to have more area to fill – in which case there is no reason not to have a cocktail lounge! Something simple yet elegant and cozy where guests can enjoy a drink and socialize. Take a look at our curated lounge packages, or mix and match our pieces to make your own. Our Bennett Leather Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs are a fine pair, especially when complemented by a set of Chocolate Poufs and stylish accent tables. Meanwhile a rug will help frame the space!
We adore taking lovely decor pieces and transforming them by creating interactive designs that deliver jaw drops from the guests and serve a purpose. In this case, our Boxwood Wall shows up to look gorgeous, with bright ice pops that also serve as a stylish backdrop for a photo-op. Alternatively, you might dish up some champagne to greet guests at the door!
