    Beautiful Venue

    We held our ceremony at the boxwood garden and reception in the stables/carriage house. The garden was lush and green and we had the dinner in the stables with one long table and string lighting. Our guests gushed over the beauty of the grounds and said they’ve always wanted to attend a wedding with one long table! I am so excited to see our photos because the lighting and backdrops were picture perfect. Our wedding planner did most of the coordinating with the vendor but our direct conversations with Linda, from Belle Meade, were great. She was timely and answered all of our questions.

    Best Wedding Venue EVER!!

    We had our wedding here 5.4.19 and it was amazing. It did rain the day of the ceremony but they already have a tent set up for a backup plan day of! Everyone still tells me that it’s the most beautiful venues they have ever attended. I could not be any happier and pleased with my decision to have our wedding here. The pictures are beautiful from just the plants already onsite! One of the best parts of Belle Meade Plantation is they let you pick your own vendors from food, alcohol, catering and florist! I would recommend everyone to have their event here!

    Our wedding at the Belle Meade Plantation was absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect venue. We were married in the Boxwood Garden which was so picturesque...the walk to the gardens that the guests took to the ceremony was stunning. The cocktail hour was outdoors in the game area and breezeway and the reception was in the carriage house..all so beautiful. Guests were very impressed with how gorgeous the grounds and buildings looked...even the horses were out (which I loved). Linda and Sharon were wonderful to work with and and very quick to get back to me whenever I reached out. Many thanks to the amazing staff at BMP who helped make our wedding so fabulous. We were thrilled with this venue and highly recommend!

    Belle Meade Plantation was the most amazing place to have a wedding!! The whole team was amazing and made sure everything came together. That week we received we had snow and rain in TN and they waited till the day off to make any decisions on set up and they answered countless emails that I had. If you are thinking about booking here do it now you won't regret it!

    The Belle Meade Plantation was the perfect place for my daughter’s wedding last month! Since the wedding took place at the end of March, it was important to her and her fiance to have indoor as well as outdoor options for the ceremony since the weather fluctuates so much that time of year. My daughter really wanted to have the wedding in the garden which worked out since the weather turned out perfectly. But we had no worries because the backup indoor plan was the quaint, romantic stable. The carriage house was beautiful for the reception and comfortably allowed for dinner and dancing for all our guests. The place can accommodate a large number of guests yet still feel intimate for a smaller wedding too. Everything flowed beautifully as the ceremony and reception sites were close to each other. Most of the guests, many from out of town, enjoyed checking out the grounds a little early before the ceremony started. We had so many compliments from guests on the venue and the beauty of the grounds. There are so many beautiful spots for pictures ranging from the bridge and creek to the garden and the mansion itself. The venue adds an elegant touch to the trend of the rustic barn theme. The fact that the place is a historical landmark makes it even more special, and I have no doubt my daughter and son in law will visit it often in years to come. I highly recommend this venue to any couples whether local or looking for a Nashville destination wedding!

    Awesome venue. Staff are incredible. This is the only venue we looked at and were in love with it from day one. The venue is gorgeous. The staff worked so hard from day one to help make this day perfect. I highly recommend them . We had our rehearsal lunch at this place as well, it was the talk of the weekend on how amazing the food was and the excellent service.

    Perfection, my wedding at Belle Meade was a dream. The satff was a dream to work with and worked along side my coordinator beautifully. The boxwood garden is a gorgeous backdrop to any ceremony and the carriage house is lovely!

    We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue to host our ceremony and reception. The garden at Belle Meade is gorgeous and requires little décor to complete the space. The cocktail hour space with yard games is perfect for entertaining guests during bridal party pictures. The grounds offer plenty of scenic spots to get really great photographs, there is really no need to go anywhere else. I loved how the carriage house allowed the party to take place both indoors and outdoors. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the entire property is and that it is one of the best wedding venues they'd seen. The staff was very responsive and helpful with the planning process and making sure the property was looking perfect the day of. We are so happy with our choice to host our wedding at Belle Meade, it was a dream!

    I cannot even begin to describe how happy I am that we chose Belle Meade Plantation for our reception. We wanted a very special and unique venue that was not a run-of-the-mill ballroom and boy did we get it. The grounds are perfectly kept and gorgeous and made for amazing pictures. The way it is both indoor and outdoor makes for a perfect flow--we had a scotch and cigar bar set up on the porch after dinner that was wonderful for those who weren't into dancing the whole time. Though it rained on and off, because everything essential was covered it was no problem. The carriage house and stables (especially with the Italian street lighting) are truly magical. I just loved how different it felt from every wedding I've ever been to. Rustic but elegant and truly truly special. Everyone said it was the most amazing wedding they've ever been to and, though I'm biased, I believe them! It was like a dream.

    We couldn't have picked a more gorgeous venue with so many options for spaces. We had hoped to use the gorgeous garden but rain required us to use the tent. The workers were very accommodating for the location change and it was still a beautiful ceremony. The stables and carriage house have such character and natural ambiance. Linda was so helpful with ideas and special little touches for the ceremony. You will not be disappointed with this venue! The fact they include tables and chairs and allow you to bring in your own caterer and bartenders saves you a fortune!!!

    My wedding day spent at the Belle Meade Plantation was a DREAM COME TRUE! My husband and I loved the venue from the first time we viewed it for a possible reception location and our guests are still talking about it. It is a great value and the team there (LINDA) is very easy to work with. The response times from Linda with any questions I had were immediate. I cannot say enough great things about the Belle Meade Plantation.... Every time I think of my wedding day my heart explodes....it's simply the best! Thank You, Linda!

    Belle Meade is a gorgeous Venue! We have so many amazing photos. The only negative comment I have is the Bridal room is fairly small and the air conditioning unit was not working well the day of our wedding. It was extraordinarily hot that day, and the room was pretty uncomfortable.

    We were beyond pleased w our decision to have our wedding reception at BMP. Linda was beyond helpful from the start and we initially chose Belle Meade because of its ability to use our own vendors, easy to drive to and from, mostly an indoor venue, held our amount of guests, provided tables and chairs, and overall is a tried and true historic reputable landmark in Nashville. We could not be happier with how our reception turned out and are still looking back on the beautiful transformation it became to portray each of us and our vision of the night. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    Linda was quite responsive via email and phone (and returned calls asap) leading up to, and even after our wedding reception took place. She was a joy to work with, and had a lot of good suggestions/input on how best to use the space. Her excitement for her job, and therefore our event, was apparent every time we talked, and we are very happy with how the reception turned out. Of course, no complaints about the venue itself...it's gorgeous regardless, and we've heard nothing but positive feedback from the 150 guests.

    It only took us one look to know that Belle Mead was our top choice. The pictures of it didn't do it justice. The historic plantation aesthetic of the carriage house, the beautiful flowers on the grounds, and the creek running through the front of the property are all part of the reason why we choose Belle Mead, but the other side of the story that had as much of an impact on our decision was the amount of flexibility using Belle Mead gave us. We wanted food trucks. Every other venue we spoke to required us to use their catering. The only requirements Belle Mead gave us were for lighting in the carriage house (to protect its historic nature) and to use a valet (since the property's parking is spread out). We were free to choose our own caterers, flowers, extra tables/chairs, etc. It saved us money we could put towards things that mattered to us, and we appreciate that.

    Belle Meade Plantation was a dream come true for us. From the day we first visited the grounds, Linda was very informative and helpful with her exhaustive wedding expertise. Having tables and chairs (and set-up!) included in the regular venue price was a huge bonus! Another huge bonus of having a wedding at Belle Meade was that almost every single one of our vendors had worked at the venue before and knew the ins and outs. This made planning much easier and helped or day-of run seamlessly. Almost every guest commented on the elegance and beauty of the carriage house and garden. Our big day came together even better than we had imagined, and it all started with our perfect venue.

    From start to finish, our experience with Belle Meade Plantation was one that dreams are made of. When we first visited, it was evident from the beginning that it would serve as a truly stunning wedding venue - from the impressive drive and expansive lawn, to the gorgeously manicured garden, and historically chic carriage house - each feature was aesthetically appealing and definitely grand. As with any wedding, but especially because we planned ours as a destination since we do not reside in Nashville, it was particularly crucial that we were working with a organized, experienced professionals. Linda Mohon and Kevin Pace ensured that all of our questions were promptly, accurately and completely answered. They even offered suggestions from their experience of weddings at that venue and ways in which we could enhance our experience which we would not have otherwise known to consider. Even additional, reliable vendor suggestions were available upon request. We will forever remember our wedding day as truly perfect (not one hiccup) and Belle Meade and staff were absolutely a huge part of what made that possible. We felt confident throughout the process and would recommend this venue for any occasion, whether wedding, birthday party or corporate event.

    I can't imagine a wedding venue more perfect. My husband had to have knee surgery about a month prior to the wedding- belle meade provided us with a golf cart so he could easily get around the plantation for photos. That is just one example of how they went over and above to ensure our wedding day went off without a hitch! They exceeded my expectations and were so helpful in every way possible!

    My fiance and I we're so happy that we chose Belle Meade Plantation for our wedding! It was absolutely stunning for our wedding day! We had so many comments from all our friends and family about how beautiful everything was. Leading up to the wedding Linda, the plantations coordinator, was one of the most helpful people in all of my planning. She was absolutely fantastic and so sweet to work with! She was always very quick to respond and very helpful thinking of things that I had not thought of. One of the things that we liked the best was that when we took pictures there literally wasnot a single place on the plantation that was not completely gorgeous! There are so many places to take photographs I think we probably could have taken a week doing nothing but taking pictures. As it is I don't know how we will ever choose from the ones that we got! They were all so stunning! I cannot imagine having had a more beautiful wedding! I would not have wanted to have it anywhere else! It was truly I dream come true. I felt exactly as I always imagined on my wedding day, a beautiful bride in a breathtaking setting marrying my prince charming!
