Because we work with only one couple per day, there is no change in our package price if you wish to have your wedding ceremony at your church instead of in our garden. Your planner will still help you create a seamless wedding day schedule and take care of all of your reception set up, decoration and clean up. You are also welcome to arrive early to use our dressing rooms to get ready and take pictures at CJ’s Off the Square before the ceremony.
Yes! We love working with DIY couples as well as the many talented event planners and designers in greater Nashville. Due to the historic nature of our venue, we do have a few restrictions and require all decorations to be approved in advance so please speak with a planner to discuss your ideas in greater detail.
You are welcome to provide your own invitations, flowers, and photographer. All other event services such as catering, lighting and rentals must be purchased through CJ’s Off the Square. If you have any specific requests, please speak with a planner to discuss your ideas in greater detail. We do not allow outside catering.
Yes. You can schedule an appointment now or give us a call to find a day and time that is convenient. At your tour, you will meet with one of our planners who can answer all of your questions, show you examples of other events and put together an event estimate for you.
We are open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM.
Please note that availability for tours on the weekends can be limited due to our event schedule.
We are prepared for whatever the weather brings our way. We limit our capacity to ensure that your event can continue undisturbed in the event of rain. Our pavilion offers completely covered event space and our patio heaters can keep your guests warm if we encounter a cold snap.
Our Standard and Classic Wedding Packages offers an 8 hour use of the property. Our Premier Wedding Package includes a 12 hour use of the property. For complete package details, please request a brochure.
We offer a one-time complimentary hold for 48 hours from the time of your visit. You (or a friend or family member if you are unable to visit) must tour the venue prior to placing a date on hold.
We do allow well behaved dogs to be on property for photos and/or the wedding ceremony. However, they are not permitted to stay for the reception. Read our complete pet policy here and make sure to speak with your planner about your ideas in advance. Of course service animals are always welcome!
To book your event, we require a signed contract and a non-refundable reservation retainer payment. The amount of your reservation retainer will vary base on your event package.
At CJ’s Off the Square, we offer a tiered payment process with installations made over the course of the planning period (from the day you book your event to the conclusion of the event itself).
All payments, once made, are final. If you need to cancel your event for any reason, you will not receive a refund for any payments up to the point we receive your cancelation notice in writing. However, you are not liable for any balance remaining on your account.
We do allow for rescheduling in a “force majeure” situation such as a government mandate surrounding COVID-19. Please speak with one of our planners for complete cancelation, rescheduling and force majeure details.
Yes. This is relatively inexpensive and can give you peace of mind with an added layer of protection against cancellation due to sudden illness, accident, deployment, as well as personal property damage and more. Visit www.wedsure.com for more information.
