“The first day we were in Nashville, we stopped by Cedarwood. All three of us walked around gasping, pointing, and just about fainting, because Cedarwood is perfection personified.” – Justin and Mary Marantz, Photographers
“The venue? Seriously? I could shoot there for an entire wedding season and still never capture that much beauty. Historic Cedarwood is THE ideal place for a wedding and reception. The facilities, the grounds, the food, the service—perfectly connected.” — Shaun Ring, Photographer
