Overview: Getting Married at Cheekwood

Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art is an elite wedding venue located in Nashville, TN. It provides an abundance of picturesque settings for rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and wedding receptions.

It’s the perfect place to host a dream wedding in Tennessee. Cheekwood is without a doubt one of the most beautiful garden wedding venues in the United States.
