This blog feature is for The Cordelle, located in the heart of Downtown Nashville on Rutledge Hill. The Cordelle is a bit of a rare find, as it’s a historic late 1800’s Victorian era venue with a lot of space inside and out. The venue is walkable from anywhere in the downtown area, which is great if guests are staying in the area. This charming venue has become one of my favorite downtown Nashville wedding venues. It retains it’s historic feel and look, but boasts modern vintage features and amenities. Here are some photos from a Christmas time wedding I photographed there, with more info to come.

I love this arched doorway!

The venue staff are very hospitable and keep a low profile at the event. They take necessary precautions to protect the integrity of the historic space, and do a great job maintaining it. So much about this venue that makes it so well rounded and full of character. The original brick walls with such interesting texture and patina, lovely wood floors, finished modern loft, and open floor plan.

Here is what the loft room looks like. It was used as changing quarters pre-wedding. A beautiful harmony between vintage and modern.

The outdoor courtyard is nicely manicured and lovely. It seats 300 for outdoor ceremonies. Being just far enough from Broadway,  it’s surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of the city. The wall behind the venue and tree line helps cancel out noise from Interstate 40 behind it. With the sun behind it at midday, my outdoor photos can’t do this garden area proper justice, but you get the idea.

The indoor venue space seats up to 175.
