Nashville’s gem of an event and wedding venue, The Ruby lives up to its name. Beautiful in her simplicity yet modern for her age, the urban chic event space is a timeless backdrop for a wedding. The vintage space was rejuvenated specifically for social gatherings, featuring modern amenities and industrial details. To help you determine whether this venue aligns with your grand vision, we’re sharing a few ideas for hosting a wedding at The Ruby, featuring our stylish event rentals.
With a vaulted wood ceiling and plaster walls, the Hall is both historic yet contemporary, expansive yet intimate. Doors that access the courtyards with the park beyond fill the space with natural light, creating a bright and cozy glow. The vast room is incredibly versatile, allowing couples to use the space as desired to bring their vision to life. Create elegant rows with our Black Resin Folding Chairs, the aisle lined with layered rugs, vintage and cowhide. For a more romantic look, feature our Davis Glass Cylinders with candles. As for a backdrop, the white textured walls will complement any style of decor, from a floral arch to greenery or signage.
Elevated and enclosed by the surrounding trees, the Treehouse Courtyard greets guests when they enter. This space serves as a gorgeous setting for a cocktail hour. Here you can set up a variety of bistro tables, decorated with our luxe linens, as well as lounge areas. Our Bennett Leather Sofa, paired with the Rivet Accent Tables and a set of Gloria Velvet Arm Chairs, are the perfect choice for the urban chic event space. Guests will enjoy views of Dragon Park, including the facade and its towering 15-foot doors. Here you might also feature one of our Boxwood Walls, customized for your guests to use as a photo backdrop. Or, set up with our Fruitwood Champagne Shelves, featuring glasses full of bubbly! The space is covered for sun and rain, and walled in the wintertime for year-round use.
The Park Courtyard
Fitting to its name, The Park Courtyard is surrounded by the park on all sides – making it a popular space for wedding party photos and bridal portraits. From the brick exterior, towering doors and light blue railing, these details make for trendy urban images, fitting for a frame. During spring and summer, as well as warm fall days, guests are drawn out by the light drifting through towering maples and tall grasses. It is a great transitional location for food stations or food trucks, and bars. Depending on your event theme, both our Franklin Black Wood Bar and Whiskey Barrel Galvanized Bar would look stunning. Just don’t forget to grab a selection of equally impressive glassware! Or expand your social areas by adding another lounge set with appetizers displayed on any of our stylish serving pieces.
Host an Elegant Indoor Reception
Following a quick flip, the white plastered Hall is an equally stunning setting for an intimate wedding reception. As the sun dims, the room lights up with soft overhead chandeliers and downlights. Meanwhile, there is enough floor space for up to 130 of your loved ones. Create a unique set up, featuring a mix of round and banquet tables. including our Fruitwood Farm Tables. It beautifully complements the wood ceiling, while our Black Resin Folding Chairs provide some contrast. If you prefer a more modern look, consider our Ghost Acrylic Arm Chairs. As far as place settings, the options are endless! We, however, are partial to neutral servingware with a subtle pop of color. Like our Earthen Alabaster China and a Fern Velvet Napkin. And should you choose to feature a dance floor, we recommend our Black or White Dance Floor.

Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
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.
