We may be new to the Nashville wedding scene, but boy have we done our research. The city of Nashville is filled with excitement, entertainment, unique venues and a pretty bad ass wedding industry (if we do say so ourselves). With that being said, much of our research has been looking into intimate Nashville wedding venues for our clients. During a time where small gatherings may be more common, much of our research has been looking into this unique and smaller spaces for those looking for a more intimate celebration.
A Nashville wedding doesn’t need a ton of guests for it to be incredible. In fact, we think smaller weddings can be cozy, intimate, and oh-so-perfect. Fortunately, there are many intimate Nashville wedding venues that are perfect for these types of celebrations (we’re talking a great space that would be perfect for 100 people or less).
