No less than FIVE stars! Highly Recommend! From the moment I walked up the front steps into the historic romance of Cj’s Off the Square and met CJ Dickson I felt an immediate connection and knew this is where we would be married. Over the next year, CJ helped me bring my watercolor garden wedding come to life. I quickly realized CJ’s advice was golden and was so happy to have her planning expertise. It's wonderful when people find what they are meant to do in life and CJ is truly passionate about her business. During the planning process, I would have a question and she would troubleshoot and come back with solutions, suggestions, and even recommend local vendors she trusted to get the job done. The fun, laughter, and great moments leading up to the wedding were more like coffee with a friend than planning. When it came to the wedding day, I was truly able to enjoy the entire day and night of the wedding because I knew every detail had already been taken care of by CJ and her team. From the first meeting to the sparkler send off, CJ made us feel at all times like we were being looked after and every detail was perfect in the planning and implementation of our wedding. We truly had the best day ever during our wedding, and we couldn't have done it without them! I would highly recommend CJ Dickson and CJ’s Off the Square for any wedding/reception/rehearsal dinner/party/event! We adore you!
Best wishes,
Charline & Andrew

When I first learned of CJ's after getting engaged, I initially wrote it off thinking it had to be too expensive. It's a gorgeous venue after all. Then after 6 months of dead ends in the wedding planning process I revisited some of the venues I'd originally passed over. When we visited CJ's in December '14, I instantly KNEW it was the venue for us! I cried in the garden at the thought of getting married there. It was winter and everything was dead but I could picture the lush greenery and flowers that would be there come May and I just KNEW IT! We were up front with CJ about our budget but she instantly found ways to make it work for us. Jennifer was assigned as our coordinator and I cannot begin to speak justice to the amazing asset she became to us at that point! CJ's handles so many details however for the items I needed to coordinate on my own, Jennifer was right there beside me, guiding me along the way! When I needed vintage style ribbon for the cake design I wanted, Jennifer googled until she had found the perfect one for me and all I was left to do was purchase it. This completely illustrates our overall experience working with the staff at CJ's Off the Square. Every little detail that I had envisioned for the day was carried out seamlessly and seeing all of that hard work come into fruition made my heart soar. Then when the forecast was looking a little iffy I was so glad that they had a built in back up plan with the covered pavilion and despite the rain, now I couldn't have imagined it any other way! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and so much of that was because of CJ, Jennifer, and their incredible team. It truly was the best day of my life!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful CJ and Jennifer were. First of all the venue is gorgeous! Even though it is outdoor there is a covered pavilion in case of rain. Jennifer was our planner and she did an amazing job. The whole process of planning and the day of was about as stress free as it could get. The day of the wedding I was completely relaxed having fun with the bridesmaids as we dressed at CJ's. I knew everything would be taken care of. Many of my guests commented on how beautiful CJ's was and that they had not been to a more beautiful wedding. The event staff is amazing and very professional. I also had many comments from my guests on how good the food was as well as the presentation. I would highly recommend CJ's to anyone looking for an outdoor garden wedding.

We could not be happier with our experience having our wedding at CJ's Off the Square! From our first meeting, it was clear that CJ and her team were absolute professionals and our wedding was in good hands. Throughout the process CJ and Jennifer were incredibly helpful, and really helped bring everything together. They were always happy to answer questions or provide recommendations. Our wedding day was even better than I could have ever imagined- everything was beautiful and we had so much fun! The day-of coordination was flawless and we appreciate being able to just enjoy our day and not worry about the details, since we knew they would be taken care of. I cannot thank y'all enough for making our dream wedding come true!

I would recommend CJ's Off the Square to any couple looking for a classy and timeless wedding experience. The venue is so versatile that you can customize your experience to fit your style. Both the ceremony and the reception took place in a beautiful outdoor environment, fairy tale style. The house is a beautiful historic property (the bridal and the groom suites are out of this planet)and the garden is the ideal surrounding to celebrate in any type of weather. The location is very convenient, a few steps away from the Franklin historic district square.

The quality of the services was impeccable: from the wedding planning, to catering, bar service, DJ, everything was top level. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone that's looking to have a very unique experience at a very reasonable price.

I can't begin to explain how wonderful my wedding and experience at CJ's Off the Square was. It was our dream wedding. Jennifer went above and beyond with details and planning. They took exactly what i had in mind and brought it to life. All of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and the most beautiful. The flowers were absolutely breathtaking, and the food was to die for! Being able to get ready in the bridal suite was such a fun and special time with my bridesmaids. We are blessed to have had such a wonderful evening :)

From the day Sean and I stepped foot inside CJ's Off the Square and met CJ, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married and we knew before we even saw the venue. We were introduced to, Jennifer, our planner who mastered my initial nervous breakdown about style differences and took my ideas, mixed them with hers and came up with what would be the most beautiful wedding any of my friends and family had ever seen. NOT ONLY THAT, but the planning portion and suggestions of vendors was exceptional. She touched base with all of my vendors the week before the wedding so I would not have to be concerned. AND at CJ's many of the vendors are already taken care of for you. The Enchanted Florist did a jaw-dropping job with my vision for flowers and kept within budget. My cake and Sean's groom cake were not only exactly what we asked for but DELICIOUS too! The rentals, such as my vintage suit case for my cards box and my vintage furniture for my cigar bar were to die for! The food was yummy and we loved the options for our fall menue - I mean, thanksgiving sliders?! WOW! The options were wonderful! Plus they let us incorporate a late night snack of pretzels and beer cheese into our regular menu because its one of Sean's favorite foods! The DJ, Jason Middleton, was totally great too! My friends, family and I were dancing ALL NIGHT! TRULY AMAZING! PLUS, Jennifer and CJ took care of all of the communication with all of those vendors! Which was so helpful because my husband and I were living in separate states! My friends and family were stopping us before we left to thank us for having them because they had so much fun. They told me "this was the best wedding they had ever been too." The best thing was, I knew that it would be the best wedding ever before the day ever came! I had complete trust in Jennifer and the staff at CJ's Off the Square. I'm so thankful for them and I would suggest them to any bride who wants their wedding to be one of the best days they ever had!

We had our wedding at CJs in October 2014. All I can say is the venue and service was amazing! From day one to the BIG day, the planner we worked with (Jennifer) was attentive and met all of our needs. We opted for the all inclusive option, which was a great option for our busy schedules. Our big day turned out perfectly... It really went just as we had pictured and everything was taken care of!! My only wish was that the night didn't have to end!

Cj’s Off the Square was the perfect choice for my wedding reception. Planning was tricky since neither my parents nor I live in Tennessee or even know anybody from Tennessee. We needed an airport and a beautiful city to accommodate our out of state and overseas family and friends. We found CJ’s Off the Square and a few other possible venues after an intensive internet search followed by inspection visits with my fiancée. We were very impressed with CJ, her presentation, and the venue. CJ’s was our #1 choice.

The venue itself is a very romantic, intimate setting with beautiful gardens, calming ponds, a covered outside reception area, and a gazebo. The actual home is historic with a lovely front porch. It has various rooms for sitting or buffets and a room to display the cake. There are large, fully equipped rooms for both the bride and bridesmaids and the groom and groomsmen. We made use of all the rooms.

The reception was unbelievably beautiful and elegant. The flowers were gorgeous! The food was amazing! The staff, the table settings, the ambiance, the bartenders and bar service, the DJ, the caterers - all were remarkable. Everything was perfect!! Our guests were impressed and made so many compliments. CJ knows what she is doing (before, during, and after the event!) and executes her services flawlessly. She is professional and handles whatever may come up smoothly and without worry. She truly wants the bride to “shine” and have her dream wedding day. Needless to say, we did have our dream wedding day!

Our family highly recommends CJ’s Off the Square.

CJ and Jennifer are the most amazing wedding planners out there! Every detail of mine and Josh's wedding was attended to. The entire staff worked tirelessly to make our big day a dream come true. Both CJ and Jennifer are beyond caring, professional, helpful, polite and courteous! They are so accommodating, and the entire bridal party felt so cared for and at home on our wedding day. I have never experienced a staff so professional and courteous to make everything absolutely flawless! From the food, to flowers and decor, everything blew me away and was beyond my expectations. CJ's Off the Square is hands down the most amazing and magical place to have a wedding. With my busy work schedule being a full-time nurse, CJ's never once let me stress and I had full confidence and trust in them throughout the entire wedding planning process! It was the most perfect, stress-free, EXCITING time of my life, and our wedding day was an absolute fairy tale and dream come true thanks to the team at CJ's Off The Square. I would not have entrusted the most important day of my life with anyone else. Josh and I will be forever grateful!
