The Cordelle is a historic wedding venue located in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. This elegant estate dates back to the late 19th century and is nestled close to Nashville’s famous Music Row. It boasts refined function rooms, lush gardens, and Victorian detailing. Co-owners Leigh Watson, Nealy Glenn, and Chandra Watson established the venue to give couples a fully-customizable, luxury space for their wedding day.
Facilities and Capacity
The Cordelle has several indoor and outdoor event spaces that provide a beautiful backdrop for an unforgettable wedding. The Garden is a 5,000-square-foot outdoor space featuring neatly manicured greenery. Ideal for a romantic ceremony or al fresco dining, the lawn is encircled by a century-old hackberry tree, crape myrtles, and arborvitaes. This event space can accommodate up to 350 guests for a seated reception. The Victorian covered porch bridges the interior and exterior event spaces. Inside, the Great Hall is a spacious banquet hall with an open floor plan that can accommodate many different layouts. Its bright interior and dark hardwood floors can suit a wide array of decor. Alternately, the Victorian function room is an original feature of the historic venue. Exposed brick, original flooring, and large windows add an element of charm to the room. Above, the Loft serves as a private dressing suite for the wedding party. A lounge, dining space, bar, and bathroom ensure a comfortable, luxurious experience for getting ready.
Couples who book their wedding at The Cordelle will have exclusive access to each of the venue’s event spaces for their special day. They have a one-event-per-day policy, ensuring the happy couple and their guests have ample time and space for celebrating. The staff here believes that each couple should have full creative control of their wedding, so they welcome outside vendors and caterers. The on-site kitchen is available for caterers to use to prep dishes before serving. A wedding manager will be present throughout the event to ensure everything runs smoothly.

We knew fairly early on that we wanted to use The Cordelle. They were accommodating of our requests and have a purely a la carte system. You book the venue, then add the things you want. You aren't given things you don't need and have them thrown into the rental cost. The venue itself is beautiful, even with minimal decorations. We booked a Friday in mid-winter to save on costs, and it turned out great! Highly recommended!Sent on 03/02/2020

We knew we didn't want a lot of decorations as we were trying to reduce costs and waste. The Cordelle was the PERFECT place. The venue already has so much beauty and character, so you don't need to add much to make it a romantic space for a wedding. They worked with us and even helped us find our other vendors, which took so much stress off our plates. Our guests complimented the space endlessly. Not to mention, they gave us the sweetest little gift on the day of our wedding. I would recommend this group to everyone. Plus, they are opening up a second, larger space soon!Sent on 01/06/2020

Dream Wedding Venue
When looking for venues in Nashville, The Cordelle was our dream site to host our wedding. We thought it would be out of our price range because of how popular and beautiful the site is. However, it was incredibly reasonably priced and the staff were amazing! Everything went so smoothly and it made the perfect backdrop for our day!Sent on 11/17/2019
