    Beautiful Venue

    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!

    Beautiful Venue

    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!

    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!

    Beautiful venue in the city

    1. Beautiful venue, chic & organic, yet urban . Garden is lovely as well as the side porch.
    2. Management is responsive and website is easy to navigate.
    3. Venue stays booked so reserve well in advance of event.
    4. The Cordelle has a fantastic list of preferred vendors which is a great resource especially if you're planning the wedding from out of town.
    5. There is mandatory security fee and an insurance policy that you have to purchase .
    6. Plenty of parking for guests if they choose to drive ( we all ubered).
    7. Our ceremony was outside in the garden which was perfect, lovely & magical but there was a fair amount of traffic noise from the highway & from the urban setting in general.

    Very happy with our Cordelle wedding

    Our wedding at the Cordelle was unforgettable. The venue speaks for itself, and the management has done a wonderful job of creating a sublime event space in the middle of the city. We found this venue to be a way to pick and choose how much money to spend on each aspect of the day, and we were able to save money on certain areas that might be predetermined at other venues. The 2 included beautiful bars were a definite benefit. The whole venue fit the aesthetic we wanted, and our guests loved it. Thank you Cordelle!

    Beautiful and intimate venue

    We had a beautiful and wonderful wedding, and it is due in large part to the absolute beautiful venue that is The Cordelle. With many of our guests coming in from out of town, we wanted them to be able to have the "Nashville experience" while also feeling that they were at a intimate and serene wedding. We were able to accomplish this at The Cordelle. The outdoor space was fantastic for a cigar bar and firepit while the acoustics inside were excellent for a band while we danced the night away. The exposed brick and grand ceilings helped to make it feel like a traditional and classic yet modern and open wedding all at the same time. We had a seated dinner for 135 with a fairly large stage set -up for the band. I feel that we were at capacity for what we had, but it was wonderful and so much fun!

    The Perfect Venue

    We loved having the Cordelle for our wedding venue! It has such a beautiful mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, perfect for our late spring wedding. The loft space is so also warm and inviting, and it made the perfect place for us to get ready and relax on the day of the wedding. We also enjoyed that the Cordelle is a blank slate and has an open vendor policy, which allowed us to get exactly the look and feel that we wanted for our wedding day. Lastly, we loved the proximity to downtown Nashville, and all of our guests enjoyed being able to experience the nightlife of the city so easily after the wedding. The Cordelle was the perfect venue for our wedding, and we highly recommend it!

    The folks at the Cordelle were professional and responsive. It is a beautiful venue!

    We were fortunate to be able to have our ceremony on the lawn on a Friday evening and noise was minimal.

    100% a 5/5 star venue. We booked this venue a short time after it's opening day and I would imagine as time goes on it will be one of Nashville's premier and desired venue's. The staff at the Cordelle exudes professionalism, the entire property is immaculate and gorgeous. The flexibility to use the vendors of your choice is an incredible peace of mind compared to the countless venues that require booking their own vendors which can cost a lot of money. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Cordelle and I look forward to hearing the name of this venue and the undoubted success they will have for years to come.

    The moment I walked into The Cordelle, I knew I wanted to get married there. The renovations were not even finished yet but I knew it would be perfect. The owners were so easy to work with and allowed my vendors to visit the venue several times before the wedding. We had an outdoor ceremony and an indoor/outdoor reception with about 375 guests and it flowed just perfectly. I highly recommend events at The Cordelle. You will not be disappointed.

    The Cordelle was the perfect place for our wedding! We'd been searching high and low for a venue that would let us "do what we wanted" and The Cordelle was the perfect match. They really have it all - beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, a great team, awesome location, and they let us bring in all of our own vendors. No stale caterers or minimum menu prices for on-site catering - hurray! We had a lovely outdoor, evening wedding and then a fabulous reception inside where our guests were able to mingle on the dance floor, at the tables, and then on the lovely patio. The upstairs Bridal Loft was the perfect place for the ladies to get prepped. We had ample space to dress and get made-up as well as a kitchen area for snacks and Prosecco. The bridal room itself was a separate space so I was able to get completely dressed, ready, and photographed in my own space. All in all, we had a wonderful experience and would recommend the lovely Cordelle to anyone for their special event!

    The ULTIMATE in southern chic, this is the place to get married. The owners are great, there are outdoor and indoor spaces, great capacity, great set-up with easy access for bands, bars, and caterers, and a bridal area that is just fabulous! And it is just simply lovely. Our wedding was wonderful there and this was the perfect place for us. :-)

    The staff at The Cordelle is incredible. They have allowed us to do walk throughs with our vendors any time of the day. We were also able to select our own vendors and bring in our own alcohol at The Cordelle which was a huge budget saver. The space is absolutely gorgeous and affordable considering other downtown options.

    I loved working with Nealy, Leigh and Chandra at The Cordelle for my wedding. The space is beautiful, the owners are a delight--and they were truly kind, flexible and helpful with so much! I love their open vendor policy--and, honestly: the bridal loft rules all. This place is gorgeous, beautifully decorated/styled and makes for amazing pics. The only issue we had was with the sound during some of the dancing at the wedding--but, with a better run through of it beforehand on our part I'm sure it could have been avoided!

    The Cordelle is a beautiful venue and we really enjoyed having our wedding ceremony and reception there. We chose it because it fit our warm and welcoming Southern style theme. It has a large space for the bridal party to get ready the morning of and we were able to hold our small wedding (~70 guests) inside which was preferable for us. You are able to bring in any wedding vendors you want and BYOB which allows you to have much more control over your wedding. The staff was great to work with and always very professional and responsive. We loved our choice of venue for our wedding and I would recommend them as a venue!

    Loved this venue! It was so beautiful and everyone commented that our wedding was amazing here. We had about 140 people for our indoor reception and honestly I don’t think you want to go over 150-160 if you are doing it strictly indoors as it would start to feel cramped. There are some “add ons” you can purchase but essentially you have to purchase some of them if you want the ceremony outside. There is no ice machine so we had to buy a few large coolers. We also had to rent a warmer for our caterer as there isn’t one of those. The rate that is quoted to have a wedding here is incorrect we had 140 people and Having it here was as “cheap” as we thought and we didn’t go lavish except on the band. With that being said I would 100% book this place again.

    We picked the Cordelle because of it's charm and beauty. The Victorian building is breathtaking and documented so well on film and in photos. The owners were very easy to work with and answered most of our questions promptly. The only thing I would say about this venue is to make sure you have an exceptional.
    cleanup crew at the end of the night or the staff in charge will yell at the mother of the bride to scrub the bar mats in her formal dress on her hands and knees. There's always a better way to go about running a business. I reported that this happened so hopefully things have changed and they handle themselves more appropriately on someone's big day.

    Cordelle Experience

    The Cordelle is a beautiful venue and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day. All physical aspects of The Cordelle are great and stunning! My husband and I did our first look through the inside doors of the Loft and it was perfect. We also did minimal decorating because we wanted the white walls and minimalist look.
    One thing to note, is that this is truly a blank canvas. We did our ceremony and reception here - we received 12 hours of time in the space and 2 additional clean up hours. Because it's a blank canvas, we needed to find rentals. The Cordelle does provide a preferred vendor list for you, but many were out of our price range. You will have to have a wedding planner, event insurance, pay for on site security, and the possibility of paying for any rentals they offer (tenting, heaters, speakers, etc.). We did not do any of the offered tech meetings or the rehearsal option.
    Overall, The Cordelle is a picture perfect place for you to get married. Their dates do fill up fast as they do more than weddings. We took the first date available over a year in advance. If you are looking for southern charm, they have it! The contract is long and in-depth, but it is to help preserve the lovely space.

    When my fiance first suggested the Cordelle, I thought "if I wanted to get married in a house, I'd have a backyard wedding." But once we went inside, we knew the space was perfect for the classic, elegant feel we wanted. The exposed brick and original floors need no enhancing! We kept decor minimal, opting for lighting and lots of flowers. We were bummed that our plan to use the outside space for cocktail hour was ruined because of rain, but the deck was still beautiful, and the staff was accommodating with last minute changes. A major consideration: this venue is one of the only in downtown Nash that will let you bring in your own caterer and alcohol. We could not be happier with the decision!
