The Carousel Pavilion: A Unique, Inspiring Wedding Venue in Memphis

One of the most unique wedding venues we’ve seen in Memphis, is the gorgeous Carousel Pavilion. Whether you’re a child at heart, love Victorian influences, or simply need a space full of amenities, the Carousel Pavilion rises to the occasion.
Aside from its obvious beauty, our favorite feature of this venue is its versatility. There are lovely, sliding doors which create multiple ceremony options. There are on site suites for the bridal party, and groom. We love that the groom’s suite has direct access to outdoors. Guests have multiple places to mingle- not least of which is the carousel, itself. 

         Let’s take a quick visual tour:

Guests enjoy a beautiful view from the ballroom. The ballroom is a large and versatile space which accommodates 400 seated, and 500 cocktail-style. Additionally, the up-lighting is can be customized to coordinate with your event. 

Next, is a delightful area adjacent to the ballroom. This space is lovely for a smaller ceremony, or cocktails. The sliding doors lend great options for this room. 
Below is the glorious bridal suite. The natural light, size, and neutrality are a dream! (See here to learn about the things you should look for in a bridal suite).
Now, on to the beauty! Call us silly, but our favorite thing about the carousel is is gorgeous color palette! Just think how many wedding colors you can find to coordinate with your venue. The detail and craftsmanship are awe-inspiring, and will make a lovely backdrop.
