About

Ridge Rose is a truly unique wedding venue located in Northwest Georgia in the Chattanooga Valley just minutes from downtown Chattanooga. You and your guests will enjoy panoramic, breathtaking views of Lookout Mountain on this picturesque ridge and its lanscaped green. A permanent gothic, high vaulted tent, referred to as Hickory Hall, is built using hickory oak trees that hold up the tent roof, and serves as the reception area. HIcory Hall's roof was handcrafted by the oldest tent makers in the US, originally circus tent makers in the 1800's. A fairy tale stone cottage finishes the collage of architecural wonder that sets this venue apart. For brides who love fairy tales, forests and beautiful views, this just might be the venue for you.

Facilities and Capacity

Hickory Hall accommodates up to 150 guests comfortably and includes a full catering kitchen and separate bathrooms for men and women.

The ceremony green is contiguous to the main entry of the hall and provides spectacular views over Candlelight Forest and upwards toward the highest point of famous Lookout Mountain. The view from the green is the choice site for the ceremony and is the number one reason couples choose RidgeRose.

We believe a true commitment to the best wedding experience must also include a special and exclusive place for the bride and her bridesmaids to enjoy each other as they prepare throughout the day. As such, a most charming, storybook stone cottage sits off in the shade just a few steps from the green and is the perfect place for the bride to begin her memories. The stone cottage is an architectural backdrop that will beautify many photos taken as the bride exits the cottage and enters the green.

During the evening and on into the late night, sparkling lights hang over the green as well as from the highest points inside Hickory Hall, and are nothing short of magical.

Services Offered

Ridge Rose caters to all wedding events including bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, but mostly wedding ceremonies and receptions.

We have several trusted vendors who know the venue extremely well and can provide, at your option, a full package of all the remaining vendored services, including wedding coordination or wedding planning services.

The venue includes 5 handcrafted farm matching tables and an assortment of other items for you to enjoy at no cost. Included in the price of the rental are up to 150 chairs for both the ceremony and recpetion along with up to 15 round or rectangle tables.

The venue also offers accommodations for rent for up to 43 people in four well appointed houses:

  • Le Petit Treehouse (6)

  • This Old House's first Idea Home (8)

A dream venue!

We LOVED having our wedding at Ridge Rose. We booked it before we had even visited because we loved it so much, and it turned out to be even more beautiful in person! Plus, it was very affordable compared to other venues in the area (and considering it's SO beautiful). Venue director Caroline Wade was a pleasure to work with---she answered my many questions promptly and professionally, making sure all of our requests were carried out. Their cottage was perfect for us to get ready in, their shuttle enabled our guests to make it up the hill easily, and their landscape crew made sure the grounds were in perfect condition for our day. Everything was set up like we had asked, and everything was done for us--we didn't have to lift a finger. We were allowed to visit the venue multiple times before the wedding to take measurements and things, which was super helpful. Plus we got access to the grounds all day during the day of the wedding! And its natural beauty made it so that we didn't have to go crazy with decor, too! We can't wait to get our pictures back to see how beautiful Ridge Rose made our wedding look. The string lights and view of Lookout Mountain made this venue a must-have for us, and we are SO glad we went with it.

We also stayed at one of their properties nearby for the night before and of the wedding! We would highly recommend doing that. The house was incredible, and the proximity to the venue couldn't be beat!

Best venue EVER despite the rain

Candlelight Ridge was the perfect venue for our wedding. The staff was very helpful and accommodating especially when it rained on our wedding day! It turned out to be a beautiful evening, and everything ran smoothly. It is simply gorgeous!

Dream Wedding Venue!

Ridge Rose was an absolute dream for our May 2019 wedding! The staff was very accomodating especially during the weather changes during the week leading up to our wedding and day of. Our guests were in awe of the view from the ridge and the lights under the tent at night. Communication with the venue and our vendors could not have been smoother. I highly recommend Ridge Rose for your special day!
