Mary and Mike chose to tie the knot in the cute Tennessee town of Chattanooga, so they opted for the Commonhouse Chattanooga wedding venue. The couple had planned for a destination wedding, so all their friends and family members could enjoy a great weekend with them.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Mary for many years. I first met her in a yoga teacher training program back when I lived in Atlanta. So when she asked me to photograph her wedding at one of the most popular Chattanooga Wedding venues, I was thrilled!
Stepping into the Commonhouse Chattanooga Wedding venue instantly gave me some LA vibes. It is a modern social club and wedding venue housed in the historic 1920s YMCA. Three unique private event spaces include in-house catering, exclusive furniture, and full bar services. Couples can choose one of the three spaces, or combine them together to create a natural flow- a ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour in the Pennybacker, and reception in the Ruby Hall. Planning for their event was by Mia + May
The bright walls, Spanish architecture, and warm clay tiles make this a gorgeous venue full of photo-op locations. The Ruby Hall stands as the main event space at the Common House. This open area is so versatile that it can conveniently host up to 20 to 300 guests. The mezzanine level gives the couple a bird’s eye view of the celebration, and the built-in stage provides the perfect DJ or live-band spot.
The aesthetics of this Commonhouse Chattanooga Wedding wedding were minimal, chic, and incredibly cool. Mary looked stunning in the white satin gown and bouquet BYGOSSAMER, while Mike shined in his sharp black attire. I loved how the natural light paired with the historical architecture of the building. It was truly a unique experience!
The high ceilings are fitted with elaborate chandeliers that overlook the venue space. There is also a Pennybacker Room that offers a more intimate and romantic atmosphere, which allows you to create ceremony moments in front of the fireplace and dramatic windows. The outdoor venue options are fantastic, too. The garden and patio that look out across the city of Chattanooga allow you and your guests to celebrate under the string of lights.
Following the ceremony, we all moved to the reception. The guests gathered across the dance floor to watch Mary and Mike enjoying their first dance. The couple looked so beautiful together, creating such a pleasant sight that couldn’t be explained with words. I genuinely enjoyed their marriage celebration, filled with lots of dancing, emotional toasts, and cake cutting. What a lovely night to cheer for the couple’s happiness!
