Let’s dive in.
First up is the Hunter Museum of American Art. This is one of the top wedding reception venues in Chattanooga, TN. It is known for its stately grandeur. You will have many indoor and outdoor options when it comes to arranging your perfect evening and your portraits (shameless plug, because I LIVE for portrait time on wedding days!). For example, receptions may begin with a cocktail hour on the River Terrace overlooking the iconic Walnut Street Bridge, followed by dinner inside. Alternatively, you could host an outdoor reception overlooking the river. You could even move your event indoors into The Grand Atrium if desired, which provides spectacular views!
Next is the Church on Main. This is one of the most sought-after wedding reception venues in Chattanooga, TN, mainly due to its industrial look. Church on Main offers a unique wedding venue with a historic ambiance. Its convenient downtown location allows out-of-town guests to enjoy the city and experience an event like no other in Chattanooga. Most importantly, your guest can appreciate the historic vibes from this old school building with hardwood floors, exposed brick walls that give off vintage ambiance, along with high ceilings. This is what makes it stand apart from any other space–its history and industrial aesthetic that can be captured in your photos for years to come!
Finally, the Apple Barn at Howe Farms. This is another one of the most gorgeous wedding reception venues in Chattanooga, TN. It offers its couples a rustic chic look that is hard to find anywhere else. Nestled between waterfront and forest views, the Apple Barn’s outdoor wedding ceremony site provides an intimate and picturesque setting. The site is absolutely beautiful. For instance, it has black stamped concrete contrasting against stone footers and wooden arbors. It also has a charcoal grey exterior which contrasts beautifully with its white-washed interior and 15 gorgeous crystal chandeliers that can be seen from anywhere inside the location. With space for 250 guests, the Apple Barn at Howe Farms is perfect for your dream barn wedding in Chattanooga, TN.
