As for the decor, the team has spared nothing when it comes to executing the dreamiest weddings worthy of any Pinterest board. Think a forest floor covered in vintage rugs. Oakleaf does it! The rugs create the most stunning aisle for you to walk down toward your future husband. The details of the rugs add so much depth to your photographs. The rugs make you stand out as a bride.

One of the coolest aspects of Oakleaf Cottage is that the venue is green|light certified by Chattanooga Green|Spaces. It is the first sustainable wedding venue in the area! The venue takes great care to be mindful of the environment and the waste that can be generated from weddings. From rainwater collection to composting food waste for usable garden soil, Oakleaf makes sure your wedding package includes many extra details that keep the environment in mind!


It’s not often you get to know the owners of a wedding venue, but Cris and Dave Angsten want you to know them! For 12 years, Cris and Dave compiled images and magazine clippings to bring their Oakleaf Cottage vision to life. The couple has spent years renovating the cottage and barn to its current enchanting beauty. They desire nothing more than to share it with others on their wedding day. 

Knowing they built something truly special, they also set their sights on having the most attentive staff for your wedding day. Each person has a hand in placing forks and knives. They place the vintage furniture which is included in your event space rental. The set-up and tear-down is done too so you’re left to do nothing but enjoy the most special day of your life!
