Make your wedding more memorable; guests will always remember the location. Our historic houses and beautiful grounds are perfect for a garden or chapel wedding, rehearsal dinner, retreat, reunion, business meeting, banquet or special event party.

Don't let the fear of bad weather dampen your plans for a special outdoor wedding. If sprinkles are expected, we set up inside the banquet room. Our lovely secret garden is surrounded with magnolias. We have a large container garden to add your favorite flowers to our beautiful a backdrop of mature trees. A large white arbor is the focal point, creating the ideal backdrop for photographs. Night weddings are especially lovely with all the lanterns lit and the lights on the arbor twinkling.

Your out-of-town guests may appreciate the properties adjacent to the reception site, our bed and breakfast and furnished cottage. They are convenient to the reception house and great for families to stay together before and after weddings or other events. Brides also rent these locations for their attendants, to provide a nice overnight stay and plenty of room to prepare for the wedding.

Our catering staff can provide a variety of foods for your events or private dinners. Read less

I was somewhat skeptical because there was a change of ownership early on in my wedding planning process, but I was so impressed when it came to the day before (Rehearsal) and the wedding day. Victoria and Darrell (new owners) were fantastic! It seemed that planning was casual but it was probably because Victoria is such a wedding planner professional! She was super organized, and calmly took control over the proceedings and aleviated any worries I might have had. We booked the Cottage, the Main House, the VIP, Magnolia, and Peri Room, it was wonderful and our families and wedding party said it was the best wedding celebration they had ever experienced. Darrell's Rehearsal Dinner was 5 Star! We arranged Breakfast 2 mornings, the menus were healthy (we have diabetics on board), low sugar, or sugar free and delicious! All of our guests were knocked out by the buffet! Some actually thought they were going to be given fingerfood and said that the meal was super satisfying and the bartender was excellent. Every staff person we associated with was super friendly and went out of their way to show the best of southern hospitality! If you want personalized service in a historic, victorian setting do not miss this wonderful experience. Our wedding was in the garden and it was absolutely gorgeous! Thank you Victoria, Darrell, and all staff for truly making our wedding our dream come true!

I cannot recommend the Carriage Lane Inn enough! My husband and I just got married this month and could not have been more pleased with how beautiful everything turned out! We had an intimate night-time ceremony in the garden outside, and the Carriage Lane Inn decorated the entire garden with white Christmas lights and lined the ilses with fancy lanterns. It was truly magical! The reception hall was equally dazzling! Sharon and all of her assistants were very sweet and professional. The whole thing was just glamorous! And the best part is that Sharon took care of literally EVERYTHING! She provided our minister, photographer, cake, sparkling cider and grape juice, fruit, real glasses and dishware, ceremony music, sound system, helpful directions as to when to walk down the ilse and cut the cake, a night in the VIP room at the Bed and Breakfast, a delicious breakfast delivered to our door the next morning . . . all for just around two thousand dollars! This was the PERFECT venue for us, and I am so glad we had our wedding here!

We had a December wedding at carriage house and it was absolutely beautiful! They hosted our rehearsal dinner and reception and we rented a house for the bridal party to stay at. We loved the atmosphere and the people were exceptionally nice! We can't wait to stay there again as a married couple on an upcoming anniversary :)

This was THE way to go when planning my second wedding! I didn't have to do a thing except tell them what I wanted! They did it all! My husband's whole family and most of the wedding party stayed at the B & B with us for the weekend! It was awesome! We plan to go back and stay for our anniversary every year that we can! My mother and father in law like it so much that they stay there every time they come to town to visit! This place is worth checking out! They were all great! And the food (the whole weekend) was wonderful! Sharon, Peggy, and the rest of the staff did a great job! Thanks so much for making a stress free wedding!

My daughter's wedding had many challenges including a groom's family from Maine, elderly grandparents in attendance from out of town, and the threat of rain the day of the wedding. Somehow Victoria and Sammie, along with the rest of the staff managed to overcome them all.

I spent 6 months looking for venues for the wedding. The groom's family was from out of town, so finding a venue near lodging was of paramount importance. Carriage Lane Inn was an affordable venue that also offered beautiful, comfortable accommodations for the guests. The financial value of the lodging cannot be overstressed. The groom's family went on and on about how wonderful it was for them to be able to stay in a house together with a large kitchen area for them to gather together in. It meant a lot to them to be able to spend time together in this way and several of them came early so they could also tour Nashville together. Although they all live in the Northeast, several live in different states and so don't see each other often.

The staff at the Inn was not only helpful but friendly. Working with them was easy and fun! They truly made us feel like we were the most important item on the agenda - despite the fact that they do this week-in and week-out, I never felt like they were distracted or stressed or in any way wanted it to be over.

If I had one complaint it was that the wedding coordinators were too relaxed. While they let things flow easily, they often failed to let the Bride and Groom know what to do next without being asked. I would recommend that with young couples who have not experienced many weddings themselves, they perhaps be a little more proactive in their directions during the ceremony and reception. But in spite of this one difficulty, everything flowed seamlessly and left us all with wonderful memories of a wonderful day.

Many thanks to Victoria and her staff for a fantastic wedding!!

My husband is Japanese, and we traveled from Japan to have an American wedding and reception in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, very near my hometown. Planning a wedding from overseas was indeed stressful, but the staff at Carriage Lane Inn worked very well with my wedding coordinator as well as with myself. When I described my bridesmaids' bouquets, they ordered the same flowers from their own florist the Thursday before and used my wedding flowers, colors, and theme to coordinate their own decor with my vision. I adore my pictures, as they are so very beautiful to look back upon! Guests at the reception absolutely loved the Victorian feel of the reception hall as well as the food and decor. Having the Carriage Lane Inn staff working alongside my wedding coordinator really took the stress off of me and allowed me to thoroughly enjoy my day. It was more beautiful than I'd ever dreamed. In addition to a wonderful wedding reception, my Japanese family and I very much enjoyed our stay at Carriage Lane Inn's smallest house, the Cottage. Five family members traveled from Japan to come to our wedding, and the Cottage was indeed the perfect place for us to stay. It was beyond amazing for my Japanese family members. They absolutely loved the Cottage, dropping comments about how they wanted to live in America if all houses were so beautiful. There was so much space that we were able to invite my American family members from out of town over for dinner. The kitchen area and living room were cozy and the perfect size for us. There was a grill outside that my father used to cook American food for our Japanese guests. The beauty of the decor in the house swept us all away. We didn't want to leave! If my Japanese family is able to visit Tennessee again, we definitely want to stay at Carriage Lane Inn. We can't dream of any place else.

Our daughter and son-in-law were married at the Carriage Lane Inn in Sept. 2009. The staff made the planning process very easy and stress-free. On the day of the wedding accommodations were provided for the wedding party to prepare. A staff member was assigned to us and a cell phone provided to contact her if needed. It wasn't necessary because she was with us the entire time. The kitchen staff met with us and helped us choose horderves and the entrees. A list of vendors was provided when the venue was booked. We used many of their recommendations and were very pleased. They accepted all of our deliveries (flowers, cake, etc.). I can't emphasize how appreciative we were for such a beautiful wedding and overall stress-free experience.

The Carriage Lane, under new management, was exceptional for us as part of the bridal party.

In fact, we're planning a reunion there because we like it so much!
