A Forest Wedding Venue

Timeless, Sophisticated, Natural...Sustainable

Just minutes from Chattanooga and bordering Cloudland Canyon State Park, Oakleaf is hidden enough that you could just miss it, lending the space a sense of privacy perfect for your wedding.

Our 32-acre grounds, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, boast a flowing layout which encompass the Cottage itself, two separate outdoor ceremony sites with space for up to 115 guests, and an upscale barn structure that provides a lovely indoor option for both ceremonies and receptions. All of this is gracefully situated against the dramatic moss-covered rocks and old forest trees combine for a serene and magical setting.
