    Ravenswood Mansion

    Abby was incredibly helpful in the planning of our wedding at Ravenswood. She knew everything we needed to know regarding tents, layout, vendors, supplies and logistics. Ravenswood was a perfect location for our wedding.

    We love Ravensood Mansion

    We love Ravenswood Mansion! It holds a special place in our hearts. We walk the trails behind it several times a week. There are always weddings going on and we have admired how beautiful they always look. When it was time for our wedding we knew this was were we wanted it to be. Our wedding was beautiful and elegant just like we knew it would be!

    Brunch Wedding

    Absolutely beautiful venue!! Our event was on a fall morning and the trees and rolling hills were gorgeous. The staff was more than accommodating and responsive. The house is beautiful for a smaller ceremony or for getting ready. We had a cocktail style reception indoors and it worked out beautifully. Our guests utilized the large porches as well. Thank you Ravenswood!!!

    Beautiful Wedding !

    Ravenswood is a beautiful venue. Plenty of room to accommodate wedding guests for ceremony and reception. Bridal and groom suite was great. Abby Cox was a pleasure to work with and answered any questions that we had. If you are looking for a beautiful venue for an upcoming event I would highly recommend Ravenswood !

    Wonderfully Southern May 2019 Wedding

    Our wedding at Ravenswood Mansion was a dream of a day. They are thorough with communication, expectations, and their rules and regulations. Which, made our day go smoothly. They have someone on sight the entire day to help with "What can I dos" and overall management of the day. The property itself is breathtakingly beautiful. It makes for a romantic backdrop for a wedding. They have a suite for both Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, so you don't have to worry about where to get ready. It is close to SEVERAL churches, but we chose to get married on the property. The venue is so beautiful, that you don't need a ton of decorations. They have some rentals on the property, so you save lots of $$. There are so many places to take photos from the spiral staircase, to the outside property, to even the inside of the mansion. You just can not go wrong!! We loved everything about working with Ravenswood, and everything about our wonderful day! I highly recommend this venue for your big day, because mine was perfect!

    Ravenswood was perfect. The house and grounds are beautiful. Abby was amazing to work with. My husband and I are so thankful for the entire team at Ravenswood. It was super affordable and we had the entire mansion and grounds from 8am-11pm. I wish we could have kept the music on past 10pm, but I understand that it is a public park with reasonable rules. The grounds are pet-friendly but no pets are allowed inside the mansion.

    Ravenswood Mansion is a beautiful venue. Great green spaces and the house was perfect for pictures. The new pavers are perfect for the reception area. Working with Abby is wonderful. Everything is handled professionally and is very organized! Abby even went above and beyond when we were having scheduling problems with the tent vendors to make it work for us. It was great working with her and her staff. We would highly recommend Ravenswood Mansion for weddings and events!

    We were so pleased with Ravenswood Mansion for our wedding! We were really drawn to the gorgeous grounds and our ability to also use the entire house for the day! The house is so well preserved and absolutely beautiful inside and out. This venue allowed us to have a truly unique and personalized wedding. We loved the fact that there were separate bridal and groom suites, so we could hang out all day while we were getting ready! Amanda Bledsoe was so wonderful to work with and went out of her way to be sure we had all the resources we needed to make our day wonderful. She was always so accessible and prompt, guiding us through the whole process, and then was present during our wedding to help make the day run as smoothly as possible. We had some unfortunate rainy/stormy weather and our plans had to change literally in the last minutes before our ceremony, but our wedding went off without a hitch and still ended up being the best day of our lives! We would recommend this venue to anyone looking to make their day their own and provide a unique setting for their guests to enjoy!

    Amanda was awesome to work with and very helpful. The venue was beautiful but in a growth phase so there was minor construction happening around. Still, a great choice in venue.

    Ravenswood is the most beautiful venue in Brentwood. We held my daughter's wedding at Ravenswood and the setting is just Beautiful!! Amanda Bledsoe and her staff do everything possible to make sure your event is the best. Our guest were raving over the setting. They have plenty of parking, plenty of restrooms and the Mansion is breathtakingly beautiful. The grounds of the park are just gorgeous, you feel like you have left the city. The wedding pictures have turned out perfect. I would highly recommend Ravenswood Mansion as a venue for a Wedding or any special event.

    If you are looking for a venue with a beautiful outdoor backdrop, where you can plan everything yourself and make it your own, this is your place! Amanda was amazing to work with and the location and parking are spot on. We had our ceremony in the front of the house, reception with a tent in the back yard and a cocktail our by the beautiful covered porch out back. They even have a carriage house where you can store whatever you might need or use for the wedding.

    Ravenswood Mansion was the perfect location for our outdoor fall wedding. The venue has been open to the public for just over a year, and I think it's going to be the next cool place in Middle Tennessee. The renovated historic house is location in Brentwood at the beautiful Marcella Vivrette Smith Park. The house is beautiful inside and out, and is surrounded by beautiful landscape, plenty of backgrounds ideal for picture taking, great space to get ready, and plenty of room to party!

    The venue contact, Amanda, has a lot of experience in the wedding industry and she was a huge help in the process. She had great ideas for our wedding and was able to provide some input in the planning process. She has a great personality and was great to work with leading up to the wedding. She was flexible with her time and very willing to help my husband and I.

    I especially loved the space provided for the wedding party to get ready. There are 3 rooms upstairs in the house reserved for party and family only, where we were able to spend the entire day getting ready and relaxing before the wedding. The space was comfortable with ample seating and electrical outlets for curling irons!

    I highly recommend this up and coming venue!

    Ravenswood Mansion | May 2019 Wedding

    There are so many reasons why choosing Ravenswood Mansion as a wedding venue ended up being a complete gamechanger for our wedding! The venue was not only absolutely stunning in May when the entire property was completely blooming, but the ability to bring in all of your own vendors and alcohol/food is such a big win for planning purposes. Additionally, the bridal suite is beautiful and huge and the on-site kitchen was amazing for vendors to easily access and prepare accordingly. The ONE downside (for us) was that because Brentwood, TN has an 11PM noise ordinance, we had to end our reception much earlier than anticipated (10PM!).

    Unique Wedding Venue

    We found Ravenswood by a stroke of luck, and are so glad that we did! We were able to hold our wedding and reception on the grounds of the mansion, which was truly a blessing! The mansion is gorgeous and the property surrounding it has many different angles of breathtaking views! The entire team we worked with from Ravenswood was phenomenal! From touring the venue to having a staff member there the day of, it was all seamless.

    Ravenswood Mansion in Smith Park in Brentwood is an absolute jewel. My daughter's wedding was there this past Saturday and it was just beautiful. Every little thing was perfect from start to finish. Amanda does a wonderful job making sure that you know everything you need know to plan the perfect wedding there. Plan ahead, because once the word gets out, Ravenswood will be the HOT TICKET in Brentwood!

    October Wedding

    We just recently had our wedding here and it was amazing. My now husband and I are from NJ and we wanted a southern wedding. We had been given a few venue suggestions from our wedding planner and Ravenswood was on the list. As it ends up, we could not get in to tour the venue on our quick trip to TN last November. After some discussion, we decided to book the venue without even stepping foot on the property!! In all, we were NOT disappointed and we had an amazing, small, intimate wedding with our immediate family. I am so glad we took a chance and had the outdoor wedding I had always dreamed of.

    My husband and I got married at Ravenswood in November 2017 and it was an absolute delight! The mansion itself is remodeled beautifully for pictures (especially the groom and bridal rooms upstairs!). No wallpaper and carpeting like so many older homes. The grounds were absolutely stunning during the fall. Our guests kept commenting how beautiful the setting was! And the logistics of this place are really what sold us. There is plenty of parking so that wasn’t an issue. We had access to the barn days before the event to store everything, which made for a stress free wedding day. There are power outlets everywhere. Also there were plenty of tables and such there we were allowed to use which prevented us from having to rent as much. The kitchen is a caterer’s dream. And so much space for a tent and activities outside! We worked with a different venue staff member every time but they were all accommodating, some more than others (unfortunately, Amanda is no longer there though — she really sold it to us too but left not longer after we booked). Abby was always incredibly responsive. All in all I think this place is the perfect venue in the area (and we did A LOT of research). I would recommend to do a tour...you won’t be disappointed!
