Laurelwood Weddings | Venue

Laurelwood weddings venue is located on top of Signal Mountain just north of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Its buildings and grounds are nestled among many acres of rolling pastures and woods which give you and your guests both complete privacy and peaceful beauty. The main building at Laurelwood is reminiscent of both a cathedral and a barn. The second building is a bridal cottage which is for the exclusive use of the bride and her party.  The extensive perennial gardens that were featured in the September 2006 issue of Southern Living Magazine provide an excellent backdrop for many of the photos. The gardens change almost weekly throughout the season and provide varied backdrops for your photographer, and guests. The main building has porches ideal as dining areas. The inside is lighted with chandeliers and is adorned with a “pipe organ”, provides wheelchair accessible restrooms and a kitchen area. The heavy oak and bracket construction reminds one of a gothic cathedral. Although many weddings take place out of doors the main building can be used for the wedding ceremony as well as for the reception and dancing. The drive continues past the main building to the bridal cottage (Photos Inside, Outside) where the bride and her party prepare for the special event. Near the cottage you will see a rustic pavilion which overlooks a rolling pasture. This may be used a beverage station or just as a great gathering place for the guests to view the herd of ten llamas as they graze. – Laurelwood Farms
