We had three months to plan a wedding for our daughter whom was/is living in California. She wanted the wedding in Nashville and did I mention we live in Crossville. I came across CJ's Off The Square online...called, made an appointment and fell in love with the venue! We met with Amy and she was wonderful! She worked her magic and Lachelle had the wedding of her dreams! Everyone loved the venue and the breakfast buffet was delicious! Amy made everything so easy for us! We are so thankful for Amy and CJ's Off The Square!

I did not arbitrarily assign 5 stars to each column; those 5's represent the best experience of my life. From the first consultation to picking out cake flavors, flowers, and decor, the process was a breeze for a bride who already had way too much on her hands. If I could go back and relive the process again, it would be with CJ's and it's wonderful staff.

I found CJ's through wedding wire and fell in love online but didn't think in a million years I would be able to hold my wedding there. I visited Nashville, which was where my husband and I met, to visit the venue. Once I was able to see it in person I was determined to make it happen! I saved money and signed the contract! I lived out of state and Lindsey made the planning process fun and easy. I was able to be a part of the planning and add my own personal touches through out the entire event. The day of was the most exciting! Showing up and seeing all of the ideas and thoughts come to life was beautiful! The décor, weather, staff, and wedding was amazing! I loved the charm of the old house and every little detail from the bridal suite to the man cave. They helped me find my vendors for cake, photography, DJ, transportation, and food. The day was flawless and smooth and I couldn't have asked for anything else other than more time!

I could NOT be happier that I had my wedding at CJ's Off the Square! Of course, the venue is absolutely beautiful, but it's really the quality of service that they provide that makes it so outstanding. No detail goes overlooked! Amy Parman helped us through the process every step of the way and was always available to address any questions and concerns. She is friendly, professional, organized, creative, knowledgeable--pretty much everything an event coordinator should be! Our wedding was just what I'd envisioned, thanks in large part to the wonderful people at CJ's!

I knew from the pictures on CJ's Off The Square's website that my wedding would be amazingly beautiful, but my expectations were greatly surpassed. I married May 12, 2013, and the weather was luckily perfect. The garden was in bloom and the string lights and candles added to the evening's ambience. I actually live 9 hours away, but I wanted a wedding closer to family. I booked my wedding date without even visiting the site first. My fiancé and I made one trip five and half months before the wedding to make a few selections and we were extremely happy with our decision to have our wedding at CJ's. Since I was an out of town bride, I was extremely stressed and it didn't help I was very indecisive and constantly changing my mind. However, everyone at CJ's, especially Lindsey, was very courteous and helpful. The day of the wedding, they set up all the decorations I had brought and did such a lovely job. It turned out way better than I could have ever of done myself. One of my favorite parts of the day was arriving with my bridesmaids and touring the grounds before getting ready. They were all in awe and kept saying how jealous they were. The team at CJ's are truly talented and professional. The DJ and caterer were fantastic. Months after my wedding people are still talking about how much fun they had and how delicious the food and cake were. CJ's Off The Square seriously gave me that fairy tale wedding I have always wanted.

Everything was AMAZING!!! Amy really knew her stuff!!! She walked us through everything, from picking out invitations and china to even helping bustle my gown for dancing!!! CJ's Off the Square made our wedding day a day right out of a fairytale!! I had even forgotten my vows up in the dressing room and right before i walked down the aisle, they ran (literally) up the stairs to get them for me! CJ's Off the Square is the Only place that we will EVER recommend for formal parties now!!! Thank you, CJ's!!!

My wedding was absolutely PERFECT thanks to CJ's Off the Square. It was honestly more perfect than I could have ever dreamed. The food, flowers, cake, colors, decor, music, special touches... just EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect! I had no worries the day of my wedding, knowing everything was taken care of; I could simply enjoy the best day of my life and soak up every moment :) I've had many friends after the wedding tell me that it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever seen... and I have CJ's to thank for that! Every aspect of the wedding was literally perfect. I HIGHLY recommend them! :)

Since we live out of state and our daughter chose to have her wedding in Franklin, it could have been very difficult to plan and execute a wedding and reception. Having Amy as a wedding planner made it simple. She took care of details and also kept us on track of taking care of things we needed to do. The wedding was perfect....a beautiful, intimate ceremony, followed by a fun reception. Everything was elegant and tastefully done. The food was delicious, the DJ was fun and tasteful, and all who provided service were friendly and helpful. And our daughter said it was the best night of her life...just what she wanted.

I absolutely loved my experience at CJ's Off the Square. From the very beginning, I felt like I was in good hands and never worried about any of the details. On my wedding day, the beautiful garden and pavilion was complete with every detail we had planned with CJ's, and it literally took my breath away. CJ Dickson, Amy Parman and their kind staff were the epitome of professionalism and grace. For any bride who is considering CJ's Off the Square: Please don't hesitate! I know that they will create the best day of your life for you, just as they did for me- Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
