An Intimate Forest Wedding Venue Like No Other

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 magical wedding.

Our 32-acre grounds, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, boast a flowing layout which encompasses 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. Loaded with rustic charm and elegance, the barn is gracefully situated against the sloping side of Lookout Mountain, where dramatic moss-covered rocks and old forest trees combine for a setting so serene and magical it begs to be the stage of your love story.


Make your Wedding Magical

The moment you set foot on the Oakleaf property, you can feel it has its own story to tell. Transformed brick by brick and plank by plank by owners Dave and Cris Angsten, this place has been the ultimate labor of love, and it shows. Every element has been poured over, and every minute detail contributes to the magic of this special place. You simply have to see it for yourself!
