Erin & Corey’s Early Spring Venue Chattanooga wedding was beautiful!! …wait until you see their ring bearer, a handsome orange cat in his turquoise velvet bowtie!

From Bride on their vision and planning for their wedding:

Why did you pick the venue that you chose?

When looking for a wedding venue I wanted a place that would include a ceremony and reception space without having to travel. I also wanted a location close to downtown Chattanooga because we had a lot of guests coming from out of town and there are lots of hotels in close proximity. The Venue fit our preferences perfectly.

What is your favorite feature about your wedding venue?

it is very hard to pick a favorite because everything turned out just beautiful and perfect. My top features though were the flowers and draping – the two combined created such a dramatic and romantic atmosphere. I also loved being able to incorporate our cat, Fawkes, into the ceremony. I was quite nervous that he would get too scared to walk down the aisle – but Fawkes was a star and performed perfectly!

Is there any particular vendor that you were really excited to have for your wedding?

I was quite excited about your photos, Nelya – you do great work and I was so blown away by just the sneak peek shots you sent.

Tell us about the food/drink at your wedding

The food provided by Chattown Catering was phenomenal. Our goal with the menu was to provide a little bit of something that most people would like, not be too filling (to discourage dancing), and work around diet preferences (I’m personally a vegetarian so meat free options were a must). Chattown was so easy to work with and made sure all of our preferences were met to a tee. The baked ziti was SO GOOD!
