The Ruskin is a wedding venue located in Dickson, Tennessee. This one-of-a-kind property has been fully renovated since its original founding in the year 1896 to provide guests with both modern amenities and historic charm. Throughout the property’s 160 acres, which are located just over an hour away from Nashville, couples are able to choose from a variety of indoor and outdoor wedding venues. With its private and gated setting, it provides a secluded spot nestled amongst natural wonders where couples can exchange their vows.

Facilities and Capacity

On the Ruskin property, couples can choose to experience their wedding in the quaint double-porched Ruskin College. This white college built in the 1890s offers a historic touch on your special day. Depending on which location you choose on the property, they can accommodate anywhere from smaller wedding parties or host up to 1,000 guests. The property also features an abundance of outdoor settings rich with caves, waterfalls, and gardens, such as the centuries-old Ruskin Cave. The Garden, another option, is a venue filled with miniature evergreens and lit trees that add some romance and sparkle to your celebration. If you are planning a more intimate wedding, the Waterfall is the perfect spot. Regardless of which location you choose, you will be able to experience the property privately with your guests since the Ruskin does not double book.

Services Offered

The dedicated team of event staff at The Raskin offers couples a wide range of services to ensure that their day runs smoothly. To begin your day, you will be invited to prepare in the comfort and luxury of the venue’s get-ready suites. These private rooms offer ample space for you and your wedding party to rest and relax before walking down the aisle. Once the celebrations have ceased, couples can choose to extend their stay at the Ruskin with a honeymoon cottage on the property. All-inclusive packages are also available to make your wedding planning easier. Additionally, this pet-friendly venue is an ideal choice for those looking to include their furry friends in their festivities.

    This venue is absolutely the best venue in TN. It's a dream location for any event. Our wedding was a fairytale wedding. Not only is the venue breath taking , but they have the most thoughtful caring staff that are happy to make your dream come to life. I couldn't be happier with the entire process. It was a dream.

    The Ruskin is a PREMIER venue for any and all to experience. The venues within are beautiful, the staff is humble and friendly, and price is extremely fair. The Ruskin is true to Tennessee's heritage beauty and should be a perfect spot for weddings.
