Gorgeous Forest Weddings
Imagine your wedding in a mossy, mountain paradise
Sited next to breathtaking mountain boulders, hidden away in the forests of Lookout Mountain GA,
Oakleaf Cottage provides a spectacular backdrop for any outdoor wedding.
Cocktail hours are a highlight, kicking off the celebrations and spent seamlessly flowing indoors and out,
smartly followed by spectacularly decorated tables with options for dining al-fresco under the trees or in our
climate-controlled Stable Barn, and dancing into the night with your favorite people.
Wake up on Saturday morning already onsite after staying in our professionally decorated Cottage in the woods! All wedding days at Oakleaf offer our Cottage to get ready in, shuttles to and from parking, setup and cleanup, an expansive collection of plates and glassware, AC and heating inside the barn, lighting and lounge furniture options. You can also rest assured that you have full access to the barn area in the case of inclement weather, we always have a rain plan! Our flowing layout offers a multitude of options to offer detailed, layered events.
Sunday and Monday weddings have the option to stay the night of the wedding, offering a gentle end to your wedding day.
Executing Your Vision
We love nothing more than being creative with you to craft the wedding your friends and family will never stop talking about. Our full-service wedding packages includes month of coordination, design and planning assistance and unlimited email access, so your wedding day flows seamlessly from start to finish.
Our meetings together will help us narrow down which of our favorite vendors will be best suited to your event, and with our full design package, we love nothing more than dreaming big.
With a background in interior design, it seemed only natural to us to turn that innovation and creativity to weddings. All of our packages offer multiple options for plateware and flatware, and all the colors of vintage glassware by Fenton, Fostoria, Noritake and other quality names. Handcrafted wood tables, wood schoolhouse and X-back chairs, choice of arbors, vintage aisle rugs, and decor details from our warehouse are also included.
Our Saturday package includes multiple design meetings to discuss best placement, discuss colors and schemes, help in locating just the right vendors for your event, and come up with ideas to wow your guests. Additional perks like our popular forest greenery option, uplighting and napkins & cocktail linens through our friends at White Table, and a selection of vintage and modern furniture lounge pieces are also included.
Throughout the planning process, we are on hand for questions that may arise. Saturday weddings include an independent month-of coordinator.
On your wedding day, our staff manages the setup and cleanup of all things the venue has to offer. We set up all the ceremony chairs and place the arbor for your wedding so it's ready for your florist and coordinator/planner to put in the finishing details. For the reception, we set all the tables with your choices of plates, glassware and candleholders.
As the event winds down, our staff buses the tables and handles the cleanup, recycling, and dishes, leaving you to only worry about enjoying the party and seeing all of your guests.
