Forest Wedding Venue on Lookout Mountain

Your Forever Begins Here

Let us set the scene. Fresh mountain air rustles through the trees surrounding the drive, eventually opening up to reveal a beautiful woodland cottage. Off the beaten path, Oakleaf is hidden enough that you could just miss it, lending the space a sense of privacy perfect for weddings.


The 32-acre grounds boast a flowing layout which encompasses the cottage itself, two separate outdoor ceremony sites accommodating around 80 to 115 guests, and an upscale barn structure that provides a lovely indoor option for ceremonies and receptions. With all the rustic charm you can stand, the barn is smartly situated against the sloping side of Lookout, where dramatic rocks and forest trees combine for a setting so serene and magical it almost begs to be the stage of your unique 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 detail contributes to the magic of the place. You simply have to see it for yourself!
