The first big item on any wedding planning checklist is to find the perfect venue for your day. With so many wonderful wedding venues in the Chattanooga area, I thought I would put together a list of my favorites to photograph at!
Located about 25 minutes south of downtown Chattanooga in Trenton, GA, The Venue at Lily Lou’s is my favorite venue for mountain views! Each wedding I’ve photographed there has been gorgeous and unique with many options to use the three venue spaces in your own way. Their comprehensive packages and rockstar staff will make sure your day runs super smooth. Rain or shine, your wedding photos will be gorgeous at The Venue at Lily Lou’s!
Bonus: About 5 minutes up the hill, there is a sweet overlook spot- perfect for Bride & Groom photos!
Investment: $2,500-$4,000 depending on day of the week & time of year (All inclusive packages available)
While each having their own unique feel, all six (yes, six!) venues at Howe Farms have been intentionally built to provide the best wedding experience for couples, guests, and vendors. Spacious bridal suites, stunning ceremony spaces, and helpful accommodations make your wedding planning smooth sailing.
Investment: $5,000-11,000 depending on day of the week & time of year
If you like the downtown, exposed brick vibe, look no further. Located the heart of the Historic Southside Chattanooga, The Church on Main is near by to many favorite local restaurants and attractions. Not to mention that the beautiful architecture is a photographer’s dream!

Once you have an idea of what kind of venue vibe you’re looking for, your next step is to schedule tours of the ones your interested in. I recommend checking out 2-3 options to compare the space and amenities. It’s important to see the venue in person to get a good feel for if it will work for your wedding! Considering wedding dates?
