The Perfect Venue!
My wedding at Belle Meade Plantation was an absolute dream! Belle Meade was the first venue my fiance and I looked at last August and we fell in love with it immediately. We tied the knot here just two weeks ago and it could not have been more perfect. Linda was an absolute pleasure to work with, from day one she helped paint the picture of what our wedding day could look like from the ceremony in the garden, to the cocktail hour outside and in the stable, and the reception in the carriage house. She offered up ideas and was extremely quick and responsive to all my emails and questions. Apart from Belle Meade's stunning grounds the fact that we could bring in our own vendors was a huge plus. Even better, most of the vendors we chose had already worked there and were very familiar with Belle Meade's setup. Every single one when I told them where we were getting married said "oh I absolutely love that place!" If you are looking for a venue that is flexible with vendors, close to downtown, beautifully landscaped, not your average ballroom setup, and one that comes with a great staff, Belle Meade Plantation is it!!! Every single guest commented on the elegance and charm of the garden and carriage house so much so that I still am hearing about it a few weeks later. I cannot imagine having had a more beautiful wedding and I would not have wanted to have it anywhere else! Thank you Linda and your team, I recommend Belle Meade Plantation to anyone looking to get married in Nashville!!!Sent on 10/25/2018

We held our ceremony at the boxwood garden and reception in the stables/carriage house. The garden was lush and green and we had the dinner in the stables with one long table and string lighting. Our guests gushed over the beauty of the grounds and said they’ve always wanted to attend a wedding with one long table! I am so excited to see our photos because the lighting and backdrops were picture perfect. Our wedding planner did most of the coordinating with the vendor but our direct conversations with Linda, from Belle Meade, were great. She was timely and answered all of our questions.Sent on 06/25/2019

Best Wedding Venue EVER!!
We had our wedding here 5.4.19 and it was amazing. It did rain the day of the ceremony but they already have a tent set up for a backup plan day of! Everyone still tells me that it’s the most beautiful venues they have ever attended. I could not be any happier and pleased with my decision to have our wedding here. The pictures are beautiful from just the plants already onsite! One of the best parts of Belle Meade Plantation is they let you pick your own vendors from food, alcohol, catering and florist! I would recommend everyone to have their event here!Sent on 06/30/2019
