You can have a grand wedding at The Hermitage Hotel. The only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel in Tennessee offers an elegant setting along with plenty of Southern hospitality. The historic hotel has a long tradition of hosting weddings and has even witnessed multiple generations of the same family say “I do.”
The primary rooms used for weddings and receptions are the Grand Ballroom and the Veranda. The historic Grand Ballroom offers nearly 2,500 square feet of space. The room is paneled in dark Russian walnut and features an exquisite hand-cast plaster ceiling. The room’s many windows are cocooned with rich drapery, creating a warm atmosphere for your wedding. Original light fixtures with new glass globes cast a romantic light.
Many brides choose to have their wedding ceremony in the narrow Veranda room. With seats on each side, the room has a built-in aisle leading to a dramatic arch top window. The sunlit room features a pale blue vaulted ceiling painted with clouds. It is also possible to have a ceremony and reception in the Grand Ballroom. In this case, wedding guests often enjoy a cocktail hour beneath the luminous vaulted stained glass ceiling in the luxury Nashville hotel’s beautiful lobby while the Grand Ballroom is re-staged for the reception.
