The Hermitage Hotel features two primary rooms that are regularly chosen by brides and grooms as the location for their wedding day. The 2,484- square-foot Grand Ballroom is most often used for wedding receptions and banquets, but it can also be a lovely ceremony spot. Paneled in a dark Russian walnut finish, the Grand Ballroom boasts a beautiful hand-cast plaster ceiling and original light fixtures fitted with new glass globes. The room is softened by rich drapery on its many windows and can accommodate 150 to 350 guests, depending on how you set up the room.
Most brides and grooms tying the knot at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel choose the Veranda as the location for their “I dos,” though it also makes a lovely reception spot. Where the Grand Ballroom is dark and cozy, the Veranda is airy and beautiful. Once an open-air covered porch, the Veranda is now enclosed, but it still manages to bring the outdoors in. Its arched ceiling is literally painted sky blue with clouds wafting overhead. Overlooking downtown Nashville’s Sixth Avenue, the Veranda at The Hermitage Hotel is an excellent spot for more intimate affairs and has a capacity that ranges from 50 to 100 guests.
