The Conservatory at BlackBerry Ridge in North Georgia

If you’re looking to get married in Chattanooga, there are some really incredible options for venues but it might be hard to find the right option. Here are my favorite wedding venues in Chattanooga & I’m sure you’ll agree!

The Venue at Blackberry Ridge

The Venue at Blackberry Ridge is absolutely stunning. It has quickly become the talk of the town since it opened, and it’s easy to see why! It’s an exclusive country estate in North Georgia, and is only 25 minutes from downtown Chattanooga. 

It has such a beautiful French country feel, with a grand ballroom and the surrounding grounds are just absolutely jaw-dropping! 

Why to get married at The Venue at Blackberry Ridge:

This gorgeous venue sits on 180 acres full of wide open areas, shade trees, and some waterfront scenery. It was formerly a golf course, so it still has 3 ponds, wooded areas for different ceremony locations, views of Lookout Mountain, and perfectly landscaped fields that make the best photo backdrops! 

One outdoor ceremony site is just outside of the venue, and is surrounded by beautiful trees, views of the pond, and the perfectly green fields, as well as a water fountain as a backdrop. Then, there’s the stunning Grand Hall that has an all-white interior with large windows, and it really is breath-taking!

It features a full kitchen, bridal suite and groom’s quarters, and then opens up to a patio area that is lit with bistro lights and includes a fireplace. It holds 250 guests, and is a perfect space for a ceremony as well, if it rains on your wedding day. The tables are handmade in-house, and they actually are built from old buildings around the area. This gives them such a fun history and such a stunning touch to a reception!

What else is included at The Venue at Blackberry Ridge

The bridal suite includes two separate areas, a private bathroom, and a Juliet balcony (what a fun photo opp!) Then the groom’s groom of courses includes a bar cart, plus a dressing area, TV + Xbox, and a private entry onto the grounds, making it easy to keep bride and groom apart if necessary!

Another incredible part of this venue is the option for lodging right on site! First they feature a honeymoon tower on the third floor with balcony to enjoy the beautiful view, which is a perfect spot to spend your wedding night! They also have the Manor that can sleep up to 30 people, or the Cottage that can sleep up to 16 people.

Blackberry Ridge really has such a beautiful European-style to it and is the perfect place to host a luxury wedding. So if you want to feel like you’re getting married in the French countryside, then this venue is definitely the right choice!
