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.

    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!
