There’s nothing that screams “springtime” more than a wedding in a lush and lovely garden. Gardens are inherently romantic venues, and often need little décor because of their natural beauty. Here are some of our favorite garden wedding venues from around the country.

Jennifer R. was awesome to work with! She was super available and advised us on all things wedding. We had no idea where to start! Her advice and vendor recommendations were absolutely perfect. If you want complete confidence on your wedding day and want to be able to show up and enjoy every minute because she has thought about EVERYTHING-this is your girl. And the venue speaks for itself-it's the most beautiful, perfect spot for an intimate wedding. My friends and family are still talking about it!!

CJ's Off the Square made everything so easy. It was a destination wedding for us and everything was simple. So many things were included in the package, we only had a hire a couple additional vendors and Jennifer Rhem provided lots of recommendations. Jennifer responded to all my questions and made any changes I wanted. I was always excited for our meetings and planning. The wedding day went perfect. From the bridal suite to ceremony and reception, I wasn't worried about anything. Jennifer was ready to hand us a drink after all the pictures and before they announced us, so we had a minute of quiet time. They also brought my husband and I a plate of food when they opened the buffet, so we had time to eat. I received so many compliments on the food and the level of service. The DJ was fantastic. It was close to 100 degrees outside and the dance floor was full the entire night. I would highly recommend CJ's to anyone looking for a beautiful intimate wedding or party.

If you are planning a wedding anywhere near Nashville, TN, I strongly recommend you give CJ's a hard look. CJ Dickson is the consummate professional and she has surrounded herself with caring, responsive and talented vendors. Our wedding planner, Jennifer Rhem is an expert in this business and made the very, very difficult look easy and happen smoothly. They are worth every dime and more.

CJ's off the Square was the absolute BEST decision we made in our wedding planning process! Our wedding was exactly what we envisioned thanks to the fantastic team at CJ's! At first I was not in love with the idea of having to use their vendors, but it turned out to be a dream come true. Not only did it make the planning process so easy (because we didn't have to google where to rent tables ha ha), but the vendors are top notch! By signing up with CJ's you get access to the best! The Enchanted Florist did a phenomenal job on our flowers. Wolfe Gourmet Cakes knocked it out of the park. McConnell Hospitality group aced our breakfast for dinner menu. The list goes on! I would without a doubt recommend CJ's off the Square!”

Cj's is perfect! There's no other way to say it. My husband and I got married November 5th, and it was everything we could ask for and more. The venue is gorgeous, no matter the time of year, and it's so easy to make the space your own. Jennifer does an absolutely amazing job planning all of the details and making sure everything goes smoothly the day of. We were able to enjoy the whole day without a single worry. We really could not be happier with our decision!

“I work a full-time job plus another part time job. Wedding planning in itself I heard could be another part-time job. I was overwhelmed getting started but once I found CJ's off the Square my anxiety changed to enthusiasm and excitement. CJ and staff took the stress and time out of planning. It was truly a spectacular day that I wouldn't change for the world. Guests even said that it was the best wedding they've been to. For a stress-free planning process that minimize the need to seek out additional vendors, for a romantic and beautiful southern garden venue, and for a day that will truly be magical (I know that is cheesy but I am a changed cynic when it comes to weddings now) PICK CJ's. You won't be disappointed. Also, I never write reviews because I don't like to waste the time but this place is truly exceptional. Thank you so much CJ, Jennifer, and the rest of your amazing staff. A++”

You're getting married! Your inbox is full of the "Top 10s" of all things wedding. Don't know what I'm talking about? You will. I'm going to add just one more. Here are the top 10 reasons you should go ahead a book your wedding with CJs Off The Square: 1. CJ. She's magic. A wedding wizard, and the kind of person you want standing nearby during the wonderful, sometimes crazy and anxiety inducing process of wedding planning. 2. You get a planner! For the whole process. Included with the standard package. Our's was the magnificent Jennifer Rhem. No need for those bulky wedding planning binders! Jennifer helped with all it: colors, design details, contacting vendors, running rehearsals, keeping our schedules--for brevity's sake I'll stop, but trust me--you name it, she's taking care of it. 3. It's ALL-inclusive. The standard package includes everything you need for a beautiful wedding: catering, tables/linens/cutlery (with more than enough color/design options to choose from) a talented DJ, bartender, wedding cake (yep, cake--included!), bride's room, man cave, lighting, sound....There are plenty of upgrade options, but definitely not necessary. 4. The house and garden are stunning. The pictures on the website are great, but nothing can do the space justice. It's gorgeous. Flowers and greenery galore. Elegant, comfortable. Charming on its own, and raw enough to add your own touches if you'd like. 5. BYOB. Bring what you need the evening before the wedding to the bartender, he and the staff do all the serving, you take home what your guest don't consume. No minimums or extra charges. This was perfect for us as my husband and I don't drink, but half of our family does. No per-head charges saved us $$. 6. They know all the best vendors in the area and everyone loves working with them! Their list are ready for all of your wedding detail needs: florists, make-up artists, photographers, transportation, etc. 7. Free valet parking for your guests. 8. Outdoor wedding with plenty of beautiful indoor options (just in case). 9. CJ, the planners, and staff have created a well-oiled machine. Everything is professional, organized and efficient. And somehow I felt so special: like I was the only person to ever have a wedding. 10. It's affordable (for a wedding). Make it work for you! They cover quick and small "elopements" to larger crowd weddings with lots of package options! PS. Clearly, I'm enthusiastic about my experience and can't say enough good things. If you want to ask more questions of someone who's had the CJ Off the Square experience, email CJ and ask for my email address (Ashley Miller) let's chat it out.
