Wedding Venues in Memphis, TN
A French Victorian mansion located in Downtown Memphis, the Woodruff Fontaine House brings an air of stateliness of years gone past to your nuptials. Hand carved woodwork and décor from the 19th century will transport you and your guests to another time and place. Although the Woodruff Fontaine House has other wedding accommodations you’ll want to hold your ceremony on the rolling front lawn when all of the flowers are in bloom. Other features include a smaller garden area with fountain for a more intimate gathering and two reception rooms, The Club Room with its brick and wood beams gives a more rustic feel or The Carriage House which opens onto the garden on one side and the courtyard on the other. The Woodruff Fontaine House also offers the Gingerbread House, a miniature Victorian cottage, perfect to keep younger wedding guests busy at play.
Ornamental sculptures and an amazing view of the Mississippi River combine for a one of a kind breathtaking locale ideal for your special day. The Riverbluff pavilion and gazebo are perfect for your ceremony or if you’d rather customize your ceremony site, the grounds have plenty of room to bring in your own custom tent. The sun setting over the mighty Mississippi River is the picture perfect backdrop as you exchange vows, and the melodic resonation from custom made chimes and bells on the Museum’s grounds provide a unique soundtrack as you’re officially presented as Mr. and Mrs. Take advantage of the opportunity to wed among original ornamental artwork for a ceremony that you and your guests will never forget.
Express your adventurous side and exchange vows among the wildlife at the Memphis Zoo. Various themed exhibits lend themselves to a pseudo-destination wedding without having to leave the city.

The waterfalls in this exhibit add a breathtaking backdrop as you say "I Do." Travel to Teton Trek where grizzly bears, wolves and elk roam, and you’ll feel as though you’re in the middle of one of America’s great national parks. Of course you could always tie the knot in the Zoo Courtyard where a replica of the Nile River meanders through this outdoor setting.
Hidden behind commercial strips and retailers is the suburb’s best kept wedding secret, the Esplanade. A plush conference and banquet facility, the Esplanade was created with your special day in mind. The soaring ceilings of the rotunda set the tone as your guests arrive while the elegant ballroom can be sectioned to accommodate intimate services or a larger guest list.

On site catering is available and the professional chef and wait staff are able to accommodate any special requests.

Le Pavillon manages to exude an intimate atmosphere though it offers adequate space to accommodate a substantial wedding guest list. A small kitchen is on site and separate bride and groom’s rooms are available.
