It doesn’t get more Chattanooga-y than hosting your wedding at The Chattanoogan Hotel. This Hilton-owned property is a part of their Curio Collection. In simple terms, fancy! It is the perfect hotel on Chattanooga’s Southside and there are endless options for any size wedding!


The Chattanoogan Hotel is situated in Downtown Chattanooga and it is a pretty grand hotel. Arriving at the front of the hotel is a true picture of southern comfort. The brick exterior curves and its softness is very inviting. The exterior lighting situation is dreamy, especially during golden and evening hours!

Inside you are fully welcomed by a wooded, natural aesthetic. It feels refined and fresh inside The Chattanoogan and it is hard to believe the intimate feeling hotel is actually quite spacious! I love the lobby fireplace with its floor-to-ceiling brick and natural stone surround. It is cozy and set apart from the other elements of the lobby. 

Venue Offerings

For an intimate feeling hotel, it blows me away how many reception options are available for all-size weddings! The largest of their ballroom options can host up to 600 guests! Looking for a more intimate capacity? Their smaller ballrooms are perfect and can range in the ability to host 32-200 guests. The ballrooms with beautiful beaded chandeliers are so easily transformed for any aesthetic. It is one of the highlights of hosting at The Chattanoogan, you really have a blank canvas!

You are not limited to interior ballrooms only! If you are looking for outdoor ceremony space, you will find it. The outdoor terrace is situated near a lush courtyard with views of Lookout Mountain. It is picturesque! The patio itself features a stone-covered fire pit and the romantic just-married photographs here make me swoon! Also, there is bistro lighting. I love these string lights for their character, charm, and how much life they often bring to outdoor photos!

You don’t get just a venue when booking, The Chattanoogan also offers you an attendee website! Room blocking is easy, and you can see and manage the guests attending and staying overnight.

Aside from the wedding venue itself, if you are looking to be pampered before your wedding day, The Spa can’t be beaten. Get a pre-wedding facial or your manicure with your bridesmaids on-site at the luxurious spa!


The attentive staff is top-notch at The Chattanoogan Hotel! Incredible service during your wedding is a must-have and this hotel has it in spades! Running like a well-oiled machine, this Hilton Collection hotel offers the expertise and standards of any Hilton brand.

The Broad Street Grille menu is full of elevated cuisine. You and your guests will not be disappointed by the food offerings which feature a menu of regional favorites with an international flavor. 

The staff is also making sure your day is perfectly taken care of from start to finish! The well-appointed getting-ready suites are modern and spacious. The natural light that comes into the rooms blows me away and the photos I can capture in this light are phenomenal! 

If you’re in the market for a wedding photographer, I’d love to talk with you and envision more about your Big Day!
