Memphis Wedding Venue: Historic Annesdale Mansion

What is your perfect wedding venue? Ours includes: European architecture, history, spacious bridal suites, lots of light, peaceful gardens, and on-site professionals that are experts in their field and make the day seem effortless. In other words, one of our ideal wedding venues is Annesdale Mansion in Memphis, TN!

Annesdale Mansion- for good reason- is one of the city’s most desirable sites for nuptials. The character of this Italian villa-style home is preserved, but tastefully modernized with soothing color palettes, excellent floorplan for entertaining, and a plethora of gorgeous backdrops for your wedding portraits. As you may remember, we have a weakness for Victorian homes and the romance of historic houses (click here to see another Victorian wedding venue in Memphis); however, what truly sets this location apart is its professional staff that holds a well-earned reputation of excellence!

The sweeping, staircase and Versaille-inspired floors of the foyer are probably the most widely recognized feature of the venue. The possibilities for elegant bridal portraits and first look abound!

Our favorite room is this bridal suite! Feminine, spacious, light-filled… and the windows also overlook the garden ceremony site so that the bride can keep an eye on guest arrivals.

Perhaps the best part about the bride’s quarters is that it is comprised of two large rooms, a huge bathroom with plenty of mirrors and built in closets to cut down on clutter (click here to read about why this is vital to getting those iconic pictures of the bride getting ready).

The groom’s suite also boasts two large, stylish rooms- the gents also enjoy a large tv to keep tabs on the game.

This is the lovely garden site which is visible from the bride’s room. In case of inclement weather, Annesdale Mansion’s staff provides their brides with excellent back-up options.

Some of said options include the breath-taking ballroom! Dancing, dining, and cake staging would also be well-suited to this space. The window nook makes us giddy about dramatic portrait and first look possibilities (read here if you want to know more about first look, then click here to see what grooms have to say about it).

The sunroom is filled with ethereal light no matter the weather! Adjacent to the ballroom, this is another excellent location for dining, or the bar.

The details and craftsmanship abound throughout every corner of the house!

Although small, we’re enamored with the glowing light, and soothing tones in the morning room. This feels like an excellent place for classic, intimate portraits.

How perfect is Annesdale Mansion’s dining room for a tudor-inspired, or English country wedding? This is often where the buffet is laid- but we love this room so much and feel it would also be perfect for moments with the groomsmen.

As you can see, the scope of imagination is endless at Annesdale Mansion! Thank you so much for joining us.
