    We just had our wedding and reception at CJ's over Labor Day weekend. I can not rave more about the ENTIRE experience! We live in Ohio so Nashville was a "destination" for our guests. Jennifer Rhem, our wedding coordinator along with CJ made us feel completely at home when we first visited, kept in communication throughout the entire planning process, even states away, helped with everything imaginable at our rehearsal, and were my fairy godmothers the day of our wedding! We planned for about a year and a half and the communication, information, and support we got from Jennifer and ALL their preferred vendors we chose was beyond incredible! The whole entire staff was perfect- we felt so at home and we miss our meetings and check-ins from planning already! We did not have to think about ANYTHING on the wedding day except each other! Jennifer and CJ kept the decor a surprise for me until right before the guys were to arrive- when I walked out to see how it came together I felt like I was dreaming- the ENTIRE venue was put together even more beautiful than I had pictured in my head my whole life. You grow up imagining what your dream day will look like and CJ's pulled it all together and then some! It was like they took what I envisioned and blew it up times a thousand! My parents did not have to do a single thing on our wedding day also but ENJOY! People are still raving about the decor, the flowers, the DJ, the food, the cake, just the venue in itself, and how AMAZING everyone was that helped to make our day such a dream! We can not thank the CJ's staff enough for all they have done! We had several places to check out for our venue and we're so thankful CJ's ended up being the first and last! You will love your experience! They really get to know you and make your day all it's meant to be and more!

    Everything was perfect!

    My daughter, her fiance', and I toured several venues for their reception and decided on CJ's Off the Square. We definitely made the right decision! If CJ says she will get it done, she will. I do not believe I have ever met anyone that is that organized. Everything is planned out down to the last detail. The day of the wedding, the garden and pavilion were decorated just as we discussed, but it was even more beautiful than we could have imagined! Every vendor CJ uses is excellent! The flowers not only were beautiful but smelled divine. The cake was just amazing! It was so beautiful, it brought tears to the bride's eyes. Many guests commented that it was the best wedding cake that had ever eaten. Everyone raved about all the food that was served at the reception. Every bite was delicious! All the food was labeled so those with allergies would know. CJ had a list of names for everything from videographers to get-away cars. Everyone she suggested was just what we wanted. CJ was there with us every step of the way with wonderful advice and suggestions. We cannot thank C J and her team for truly making everything perfect!

    Thank you thank you thank you!!! It means so much to know that as a mother of the bride, you too enjoyed the planning process and (most importantly) your daughter's wedding day! It was wonderful working with you Genean and I really appreciate your kind words. - CJ
