    Great experience

    Beautiful, large venue. You have plenty of space social distance tables during a Covid-19 wedding and you have an upstairs that you can reserve for people who don’t want to be around crowds. Staff was very nice and accommodating. You have to purchase alcohol through the Cadre, which was the largest expense we had overall. However, we chose an upper-end open bar package. There are other lower-cost options. This was not a secret or a surprise to us - we knew exactly what we signed up for lol. It just is a lot more than what you might pay a venue to bring your own alcohol. We loved the venue so much that we were willing to take on the extra expense. (I’m just trying to think of potentially helpful information. This was not a negative thing.)

    Gorgeous and Professional

    I’m not one to write many reviews, but if you plan on getting married in the TN area (or even if you’re from out of town), this is the place to have it! It is an absolutely gorgeous venue, with amazing event planners if you need one! The architecture speaks for itself and honestly doesn’t even need decor to stand out. It’s so classy and beautiful, I would make the same choice if I had to do it over again!

    The Cadre Building's reply:

    Stephanie! Thank you for the kind words! We ABSOLUTELY loved every part of working with you to make your wedding day special and everything you imagined!
