Only minutes south of Nashville you will find an oasis of Southern charm and hospitality at CJ’s Off the Square. Located in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, TN, our historic house and garden are the perfect location for romantic garden weddings, rehearsal dinners and parties.
We know what it is like to be in your shoes: the excitement of planning a wedding or special occasion and the overwhelming amount of details that come with it. CJ’s Off the Square has welcomed guests for ten years and we understand that great occasions don’t just happen. They start with an understanding of your desires, the needs of your guests and comprehensive management of a vendor team to deliver the goods. It is a meticulous process, but one we have mastered. Let us put our experience to work for you.
Every event at CJ’s Off the Square begins with the help of your very own dedicated planner from our design team. We listen to your ideas, help you set priorities and honor your budget. We will help you every step of the way with inspiration, insight and advice to create a beautiful celebration that perfectly reflects who you are.
- Overwhelmed with details? We’ve got you covered. Your planner will provide you with a personalized planning schedule and instant access to your very own client website; a great tool to keep you organized. Use it to quickly reference or share all of your your planning resources, meeting dates and times, design ideas and contracts.
- Change in guest list? One call updates your entire plan, from florist to floor plans, saving you countless hours of precious time.
- Confused about colors, themes or style? Enjoy an afternoon in our design studio mixing and matching linen colors and place settings until you find the perfect look. Our Premier clients will also enjoy the Style Preview, an exciting opportunity to see your reception table fully set with linen, centerpiece and place settings before the event so you can be confident that what you have chosen is absolutely perfect.
Our all-inclusive event packages take care of the essentials that any host needs to have a gorgeous garden party. We’ve done all of the leg work for you so you can confidently choose products and services from our collection of approved vendors at pre-negotiated rates. No haggling. No hassle.
Because we are working with you from the start to understand your priorities, creative vision and budget, we can also help prevent costly mistakes in hiring vendors or purchasing products that are a bad fit or simply unnecessary (and yes, there is a lot of stuff out there that you really don’t need to make your event amazing).
Then, we coordinate all of the details, saving you countless hours running around town to interview vendors, navigate complex contracts, remember payment schedules, schedule delivery and pick up times, making sure everything is correct when it arrives…are you dizzy yet? It’s a lot of work, and at CJ’s Off the Square, we do it all for you. No pressure. Just peace of mind. And peace of mind… well, that’s priceless.
