Magical Wedding At CJ's
Our fall wedding at CJ's Off The Square was truly magical! From the moment we toured we knew that was where we wanted to be married. From the bridal suite to the garden, everything is absolutely beautiful. Sidney was an incredible wedding planner and I didn't have to stress about a thing! She made everything perfect, it all turned out better than I thought possible. Every detail was exactly what I wanted. The food was incredible, the drinks were great, and the DJ was so much fun, he kept everyone dancing all night long! Our guests are still raving about our wedding. We wish we could live it over and over again. Worth every penny! I could go on forever. Hands down the BEST wedding venue in Middle Tennessee!Sent on 12/20/2020

Perfect Wedding Day
After my original reception venue cancelled on us, we contacted CJ's Off the Square and were connected with Sidney only 2 months before our wedding date - October 17, 2020. We already had a wedding planner however, Sidney went above and beyond to help us quickly plan an amazing day in such short notice. I live out of state and did not even see the venue until a few days before our wedding! We were initially nervous the space would be too small to accommodate our party however, we had 112 guests + bride and groom and it was just perfect. The temperature was cooler than anticipated and they had provided plenty of outdoor heaters to ensure our guests were warm and comfortable. The decor, food, and service were all exceptional and I would recommend CJ's Off the Square and Sidney to anyone contemplating a wedding reception venue!Sent on 10/28/2020

The perfect wedding venue
From the moment we stepped foot into CJ's garden, I knew it would be the perfect place for our destination wedding. From planning, to postponing a year due to COVID, and finally executing the MOST INCREDIBLE, PERFECT, MAGICAL day, CJ and her team were a DREAM to work with. I am a very detailed-oriented and picky person about how things look, and CJ COMPLETELY understood and made my vision a realty. The venue, DJ, food, and staff were all spectacular, and every day I am still swooning over every moment of our day. CJ goes above and beyond, and I am so thankful. She had the best guidance and recommendations for every decision, and her positive attitude made planning so much fun. We had the BEST wedding day ever! THANK YOU CJ AND TEAM! I wouldn't change a thing!Sent on 04/28/2021
