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. Hickory Hall 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.
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. Chairs for the ceremony and the reception are offered for rent at a below market cost.
The venue also offers accommodations for rent for up to 43 people in four well appointed houses:

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!Sent on 03/29/2020
