Nashville Vendor Tour: The Cordelle, Ashleys Bridal Guide & The Hermitage Hotel
The Makeup for Your Day team’s recent trip to Nashville was not only to explore this new city that we have expanded to, but to meet some of the local wedding professionals that make this town the #1 destination wedding location in the U.S! This week I had the pleasure of speaking with several different vendors that truly value the Nashville community!
A venue that we had our eye on right away was The Cordelle near downtown Nashville. This gorgeous venue was started by two sisters from L.A. that had a need for a venue like The Cordelle and had trouble finding one in Nashville. So they built one! I had a chance to sit down with Chandra who has a history in video production and was a wealth of knowledge in how they have had such success breaking into the Nashville wedding market.
The Cordelle is a blank space that clients are able to use whatever vendor they choose. Because of this it is a popular destination not only for brides, but corporate clients as well.
I loved the bridal suite upstairs that overlooked the larger open room below. You can find out more about The Cordelle and how the venue came to be HERE.
When you search google for Nashville weddings, Ashleys Bridal Guide is at the top of the list! The site is very well known for having a great list of all the need-to-know vendors in the music city. This is great for brides who are planning a destination wedding in Nashville and may not have time for frequent visits to the city to meet vendors. Alyssa has recently taken over the blog that has been around for 10 years and it was wonderful getting to chat with her about her plans for the blog. You can view more information HERE.
I was also fortunate enough to get to attend a small vendor party at The Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. The outside of the hotel is just as grand as the inside. The Hotel itself has been around for 100 years and still has top notch customer service! I was able to meet Heather, the catering sales manager at the hotel who showed me their grand ballroom and the bridal suite. You can find more information about The Hermitage Hotel HERE.
All three of these vendors love partnering with local Nashville vendors to build each others bussiness and that has always been a core value of Makeup for Your Day. We are looking forward to kicking off our Fall wedding season with this new group of Nashville Vendors!
