Gardens in the Gorge: Chattanooga Wedding Venue Highlight

If you have read any of my wedding venue highlights, you know that I am a sucker for venues with great outdoor patios that have picturesque views and bistro lights. I never thought patios could be topped until I saw Gardens in the Gorge and their wrap-around deck at Windsor Hall. This deck is elevated. It is breathtaking. And it offers panoramic views of the stunning Tennessee River Gorge. I am sharing all about the GORGEous Tennessee River Gorge wedding venue, Gardens in the Gorge below!

Ceremony & Reception Spaces

Windsor Hall is Gardens in the Gorge indoor, 6,000 sq. ft reception hall perfect for up to 200 guests. Windsor Hall has windows on nearly every wall, bringing the Gorge and Prentice Cooper State Forest indoors. Included with your private wedding day is an outdoor ceremony space, The Green. This lawn and garden space has mature trees that create a stunning backdrop for your vows. The team at Gardens in the Gorge even provides a beautiful selection of arbors for your use. Work with your florist to create the perfect piece to use outdoors and you have a winning combination for beautiful altar photos.

Other Amenities

The Gardens offer so much more for your wedding day besides great views. The wedding party suites are the perfect getting-ready place on site, complete with salon chairs and couches. The team even thought to include a dress hook for those detail pictures we love to take while hair and makeup are being completed! The cottages on site are also beyond cute! The cottages can double as a groom getting ready suite or the bride’s last spot before making her debut on The Green for the ceremony. I love that the cottages can be rented by you or guests who don’t want to leave the beauty of Chattanooga just yet. I even think it is the most adorable spot to spend your first night as a married couple!

Gardens in the Gorge did not miss a thing for all of your must-haves on the wedding day. They have a décor closet for couples to choose from to enhance the space. The venue has totally gone high-tech as well from audio in The Green during your ceremony to a digital seating plan and reception layout tool. WHAT?! I love it! The reception layout tool is an especially great feature for helping me plan where to snap the best candids during your reception and dancing!

Micro-weddings & Elopements

If you are wanting to elope or host a microwedding, you don’t need to head to the courthouse and miss out on breathtaking beauty. Gardens in the Gorge love elopements and micro-weddings. There is absolutely no sacrificing of views if you opt for a smaller wedding because the space is still all yours. Whether I am capturing just a couple or the whole family and your eighth cousin, I can already see the golden hour peeking behind you as you embark on your first few hours as husband and wife!

If you want to see Chattanooga like you have never seen it before and are searching for a venue with uniquely breathtaking views, schedule a tour and meet with the team at Gardens in the Gorge! Then, reach out to me if you’re in the market for a wedding photographer! 🙂
