We considered the best wedding venues and services that Nashville has to offer and we can confidently say after the fact that Nashville Event Space has the most unique and customizable wedding venues in the city. We were married at Cellar One, and when you pair the venue with the incomparable team of experts and professionals at Randi Events you not only get to bring to reality the vision of your perfect wedding, but you get a wedding experience that is uniquely you - and that's the best thing anyone can say about your wedding. That's the genius that is Randi Events.

We were impressed from our very first interactions through the sales process with Natalie Finley. Natalie gained our trust immediately and we were hopeful we would enjoy the same type of experience and trust with our wedding planner/coordinator. We got that and a whole lot more! We worked with Ellen Thomas for months to plan our wedding and she was an invaluable resource from Day 1 through our reception. She is the ultimate professional and planned our wedding creatively, expertly, kindly, proactively, smoothly and calmly. It was amazing how she transformed a blank canvas into what we saw on our wedding day. It exceeded even our grand expectations. Whenever we needed her, she happened to be right there. She has a knack for always being at the right place at the right time, for being attentive without you even knowing she's there. Ellen, as we told her often, was our guardian angel, wedding fairy and wedding ninja wrapped into one.

Ellen's reassuring demeanor and approach was a comfort, and while she and her team at Randi Events handle the big things, the small things and everything in between, you are left with something invaluable - the time to enjoy your big day and the peace of mind to really enjoy it. We can't imagine having worked with anyone else. She's reflective of what you get at Randi Events/Nashville Event Space and a true testament of their brand.

Our guests raved about the unique space at Cellar One and its location just off Lower Broadway. They also raved about our vendors - who we call our Hall of Fame Wedding Team - and for good reason. When you work with Randi Events/Nashville Event Space, they assemble a team of vendors that are second to none in Nashville. We actually planned our wedding from another state before moving here five weeks before the wedding, so we didn't know where to begin finding vendors. Ellen easily helped us coordinate and pull together a team of rock stars that we would come to find out were the best at what they do in Nashville.

If you are planning a wedding in Nashville, your first call should be to Randi Events and Nashville Event Space...that is, if you want to offer your guests a truly unique experience, customize your wedding in ways that you wouldn't be able to elsewhere, work with the best wedding planners in the city, rid yourself of excess burden and stress, work with the best team that can be assembled and have the best day of your life!

Nashville Event Space- The aVenue posted 1/24/2014 (modified 1/25/2014)

My wedding was held at the aVenue and I have received compliment after compliment about how gorgeous & fun the wedding was! All of this, coming from guests who didn't even have the pleasure of working behind the scenes. And that is absolutely correct, it was a pleasure working with this vendor. You are paired with an event coordinator who oversees your entire planning process. My coordinator was priceless and one of the sweetest girls I have ever met! Not only was our relationship a hit but she made such an impression on my family during rehearsal and her involvement at the wedding! Everyone complimented her and her professionalism. Overall, the aVenue and Nashville Event Space is worth every penny you pay for their services. The convenience of a full service coordination is priceless and the outcome of their work is absolutely beautiful!

We got married at Cellar One, a Nashville Event Space venue, on November 2. Our coordinator was Natalie Finley, and she helped make it the perfect, best day of our lives. She is so sweet and thoughtful, and she took care of everything- suggested and booked vendors, set up appointments and tastings, designed and set up the decor, thought of every detail, and was there every step of the way to keep everything running smoothly! She even looked at my Pinterest page to help make our vision for our wedding day perfect!! And it was... way more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Cellar One was perfect- our photographer went on and on about how many amazing shots she was getting, and all our guests have been so complimentary of how much fun they had and how picturesque the ceremony and reception were. It was amazing how extravagant and elegant it felt, considering that Natalie kept the total cost within our budget! This is truly an all-inclusive option, and Michael and I got to feel all the excitement and involvement of planning a wedding without the stress. I'd recommend it to anyone. Everyone we ever worked with from Nashville Event Space was super professional and helpful, and we cannot say enough good things about Natalie!

Sarah was absolutely amazing!! posted 7/21/2014 (modified 7/21/2014)

We recently had our wedding at aVenue on July 12th and it exceeded my expectations. Sarah Miller was our coordinator and she was beyond amazing! She handled just about everything for us and did an amazing job. She was alaways available when we had questions during the process (which was a lot), helped us remain within our budget, and was always so friendly. She truly took my vision and made it ten times better. I could have never done any of it without her.

The event space is great because it really is a blank canvas that you can do so much with. Plus, the size and location was great for our guests. Everyone at Nashville Event Space was always very helpful and again, I cannot say enough about Sarah. She was there day off and helped with anything that we needed. She really made our wedding day go smoothly and everything was perfect.

Simply Amazing posted 7/7/2014

My husband and I eloped in 2013 and recently renewed our vows in front of our family and friends. We needed a venue that would accommodate a fairly small group but would be centrally located close to the airport and interstates, etc. Nashville Event Spaces could not have been a better choice for my husband and I. Ellen was able to perfectly blend our wishes represent our eclectic and off beat preferences with our desire to incorporate traditional elements. It was difficult for me to express my vision for our day, but she somehow took my descriptions and expertly created a memorable and perfect experience for everyone. True talent! I would definitely recommend Nashville Event Spaces to anyone planning a wedding or other event!

If Mary Poppins were an event planner, her name would be Julia Page and she would work for Randi Events!

I cannot say enough great things about Julia, and the entire team at Randi Events. From the first moment Natalie showed us "aVenue," my daughter fell in love with the space. But we never imagined just how magical it would become for her wedding reception. Thank you , Julia -- everything was perfect!

As the VP of a conference planning company in Virginia, my standards are high, but Randi Events and their team exceeded all expectations. Not only was the reception wonderful, but Julia made the process along the way easy ... indeed, it was enjoyable.

Thank you Natalie, Randi and especially Julia, for making this special event as wonderful as we could have ever imagined.

We had our April wedding at Cellar One. It was the perfect location for both the wedding and the reception. The majority of our guests were from out of town so this hidden gem downtown Nashville was great for the event. The courtyard outside and the unique brick reception area was something of our guests raved about. Brittany was great with helping us set up all the details which made the wedding so much more stress free. Everything went off without a hitch and we received nothing but compliments on our choice of venue.

FANTASTIC WEDDING AT AVENUE! posted 5/28/2014 (modified 6/7/2014)

Our wedding at aVenue was the absolute best day of our lives. The space is gorgeous and versatile, allowing you and your wedding designer to create a wedding that is perfect for you. We had the good fortune of working with Sarah Ann Miller, although I'm sure that all of the designers working at Nashville Event Space are fantastic. Sarah was born to do this job. She is incredibly responsive, calm, thoughtful and professional. She knows exactly what needs to be done and was always a step ahead in the planning process. She and her team at aVenue took care of everything on the big day so that I could enjoy the special time with friends and family without an ounce of stress or worry. She was never too far away at the reception, making sure that the groom and I (as well as everyone attending the wedding) were well taken care of. I'll also say that Sarah is very talented in terms of design and creativity. I gave her *almost* full reign of the design and decor of the space - when I walked into aVenue on the day of my wedding I was floored by how beautiful and elegant everything was. If you ever have the privilege of working with Sarah, I'd encourage you to rely on her for both creative suggestions (I couldn't dream of anything more beautiful than aVenue on our wedding day) and vendor recommendations - our photographers, SheHeWe, and band, The Downtown Band, and our caterers, Chef's Market were her recommendations and they were absolutely phenomenal! Sarah is a fabulous person and wedding director - we couldn't be any happier with our experience! Thank you Sarah and Nashville Event Space!!

Fantastic Venue in the Heart of Downtown posted 5/18/2014 (modified 5/19/2014)

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at aVenue and it was perfect! I worked with Sarah Ann Miller, one of the event designers, and she was amazing. The venue is a blank canvas which is great because you can design it to look however you want, however this can also be extremely overwhelming. Sarah did a great job of coming up with ideas by talking with us and she was able to capture our vision and bring it to life. We also had her run our day of coordination and she went above and beyond to make our wedding a fantastic event. The entire night ran smoothly and if anything went wrong, I didn't know about it! Weeks after our wedding, our guests are still talking about what an amazing time they had and how beautiful our venue was.

Perfect Venue, Perfect Planner, Perfect Day! posted 1/28/2014 (modified 1/29/2014)

We had our wedding reception at aVenue on 1-18-14 and it was simply perfect in every way! We planned our wedding from out of state and absolutely loved working with Nashville Event Space/Randi Events. Our wedding planner Sarah Miller was AMAZING and made planning a wedding from so far away practically a breeze. Not only is she super organized and efficient, she has a true talent for wedding coordination and creative flare. She provided us with excellent vendor recommendations and is well connected in the industry. She is also very personable and took the time to listen to all of my ideas but more importantly, she knew the right questions to ask so that she could get the most accurate picture of what we needed and wanted out of our wedding. After speaking and meeting in person a few times, Sarah developed a design board (similar to a Pinterest board) for our wedding that displayed my ideas, colors, vibes, themes, etc better than I ever could have imagined or done on my own. She nailed it! Our wedding day went off without a hitch thanks to Sarah's detailed wedding timeline and organization at the rehearsal. My friends and family loved getting to know her as much as we did. Our reception was honestly the most beautiful event I have ever attended. The arrangements and decor were exactly what we wanted times a million and the vibe was perfectly "us". Additionally, our guests had a blast as the location is ideal in the heart of downtown and was convenient for those who were from out of state staying in nearby hotels. I strongly recommend Nashville Event Space/Randi Events for your perfect Nashville wedding!

Great space, even nicer people! posted 12/13/2013 (modified 12/14/2013)

Avenue was the perfect space for our ceremony. My husband and I only had our ceremony here and then an outdoor reception later at a private farm. But the space is simple, yet beautiful. It easily accommodated my dream of having a candlelit ceremony even though it was at 3pm. We had chairs only down the middle and then a vintage rug just in front of the stage- then candles on the stage. I loved the fact that I entered the room from outside with the big doors opening. Everything went smoothly that day, I didn't have to worry about a thing- Sarah and Natalie were AMAZING to work with. Made everything so easy and they were just so sweet that I felt so grateful and lucky to have them included on our wedding day. THE BEST!

The other spaces that this company has are gorgeous as well. The lower level of Avenue was perfect for the girls to hang out in before and the loft was a great space for the guys to wait. The rustic feel of the exposed ceiling and the brick wall gave me the easy feel I wanted. The sound and draping companies that they use were excellent as well.

I would recommend this venue space and this company to anyone- in fact I have!

Just love love love Sarah and Natalie.

Very romantic and beautiful space.

xoxo Blake and Rebecca Dunn

They Built a Venue for Our Wedding!! posted 12/10/2013 (modified 12/11/2013)

I came to Randi at Nashville Event Space with a request to plan my wedding at my husband's family house. The property was where we wanted to have our reception but the land is on a hill/ridge/small mountain. Randi and her team created a tent that was a VENUE in and of itself. The tent required major engineering due to the uneven land. What happened next was beyond perfect. The tent was the BEST party space we've ever seen and much more than we had dreamed of having.
While the tent was amazing, the complete party was the best party ever! The food was great (we wanted a Southern menu) and showcased our Nashville traditions. The decor was comfortable and compatible to a party. The band(s) were set up perfectly. Everything was beyond perfect!
The service was impeccable. I was always able to reach Randi, Sarah and Ellen with the most ridiculous phone calls and they always made time for me. Sarah was with me through all the decision making processes and met with my parents anytime they requested. Upon entering the reception Randi was there to welcome my husband and me and the night flowed seamlessly. Randi and her team made sure that our families and my husband and me ate, had a reserved table and were comfortable. Sarah even had a pair of socks for my bare feet when I changed into my boots at the party!
All the vendors were professional, nice, timely and wonderful to have around. By vendors, I mean the people that supplied the posh toilets to the electrical work to the security on the property, the caterers, to the driver of the get away car. Everybody involved was A-game.
My husband and I, and our parents were truly overwhelmed by the job that Randi and her team did. The reception seemed like it would be impossible to pull off on the property at the beginning but they did it so much better than we could have imagined. I came to them with very little opinion on details such as color and decor. I had bigger details like a mariachi band, a southern buffet, a bourbon bar, a cigar area, a flowing movable space. I think allowing them to melt all our crazy wants into their vision allowed them to do what they do best. I trusted their judgment and artist ability, which allowed me to not be stressed about table clothes or what kind of tables to use. They did ALL of that and after getting to know me and my husband, they did all of that perfectly to our taste.
It's been over a month now and everybody is still talking about our wedding. The best comments so far: "I want to live in your party tent!" and "I wish your wedding was like an amusement park so I could go like twice a year".
I cannot recommend Randi and her team enough. Whether you're wanting to plan something in one of their venues (which I have been to and LOVED) or you want a totally customized space, I would choose Randi and her team over and over again.
Lastly, on a very personal note: my mother had emergency the week of the wedding. I told Randi and within 24 hours, Sarah and a caterer showed up at my parents house with enough food for the family for the week. They did that out of the kindness of their hearts. This was the most personal touch they could have given us. It was so thoughtful and sweet and was a huge relief to my father, who was caring for my mother through that week. Once again....they are amazing!

Best wedding planners ever!!!! posted 10/15/2013 (modified 10/15/2013)

We had the most wonderful wedding experience imaginable. Randi events is amazing. We were blessed to have Julia Page and Ellen Thomas as our wedding coordinators. These girls are the dynamic duo! My daughter's wedding was in Nashville, and my husband and I live in Mississippi. Planning a wedding is difficult enough, but to be five hours away makes it even more difficult. Thank goodness we had Julia and Ellen. They recommended venues, florists, caterers, bands, and bakeries. They handled hotel room reservations, transportation, and the bridal breakfast. They listened carefully to every detail we wanted, and they made it happen. When I say this wedding was flawless... I mean flawless... And the most beautiful part about it, is that we just showed up! We didn't have to lift a finger!!! Completely stress free! They dotted every i and crossed every t... Without one ounce of hesitation, I would recommend Randi events.

After working in the event planning industry for more than 8 years, when it came to planning my own wedding with my husband who is also a veteran in the event industry, I thought..this will be a piece of cake! After 7 months of planning our wedding without a coordinator... we looked at each other and said okay we have most of this planned but who is going to actually make sure everything gets done?!

That's where Randi came to the rescue with Sarah and Ellen! From experience I must say that one of the hardest tasks of wedding planning is picking up where someone else has left off! But these ladies handled it like pros! I was a bit nervous since a lot of the details were still in my head, but everything turned out the way I had imagined! They were seamless the day of and it was like they were not even there (exactly what I wanted that day, because even though I love them, I really wanted to spend more time with my husband and family than I did with the wedding coordinator):)

I would recommend any of the Nashville Event Space/ Randi Event staff in a heart beat especially Sarah and Ellen.Thanks for helping to make our wedding day/night everything we had imagined and more!

My husband and I just had our wedding a few weeks ago and went through aVenue South for our wedding coordination and venue. We could not be happier with how everything turned out and it exceeded our expectations! We worked with Julia, Sarah, and Natalie and all three girls are so down to earth and made our experience so enjoyable and stress free! With as many weddings and other events they are working on simultaneously, they always made sure their responses were prompt and provided such great insight. They catered to our every want/need and our wedding day was simply amazing!

If I can give any suggestion to future brides and grooms,I would say to definitely invest in the full wedding coordination package! The Randi Events team is so much fun to work with...not to mention they are the most organized group of girls I have ever met! Trust me when I say, you WILL NOT be disappointed! Thank you SO much Randi Events!!

My husband and I just got married at the Musicians Hall of Fame and worked with Julia Page from Randi Events! The event and Julia were absolutely amazing! From the very beginning Julia helped guide us to the most fabulous vendors and really organized cost, vendors, what we needed, amount.. everything for us! She was a great resource for advice whether it be vendors, decor, lay out, timing, etc! We also hired Julia to run day of coordinating for us. It was the best day of our lives and it couldn't have been that way without Julia! She made everything so easy. I didn't have to think about a thing, other than being in the moment with my friends, family, and husband. Not to mention it was absolutely gorgeous! She really helped me mold and create my vision of what my wedding should be like and the wedding was totally and completely us. We got a million compliments on our wedding.

I am one that stresses pretty easily, however, due to the help of Julia and Randi Events in general I didn't stress out at all. It was a fun, stress free planning process and event. I really felt as though they were on my side and really doing what was in our best interest so I never had to worry.

If you are looking to get married in Nashville definitely go with Nashville Event Space or at the very least hire Julia/Randi Events to coordinate your event! You will not regret it! :)

When my fiance and I finally decided on Nashville for our wedding we were in search of the perfect venue that looked and felt like us. This would be a destination wedding for our friends and my family, family lived just outside of Nashville. We wanted someplace centrally located downtown so our out of town guests would not have to rent cars and could enjoy a fun filled weekend on Broadway. I stumbled on aVenue online and it was literally stumbling distance from Broadway. We walked into the venue and we knew instantly that this was the place for us. Everyone at Nashville Event Space was beyond helpful with answering all of our questions and concerns prior to booking the venue. I knew planning the wedding from Pittsburgh would be stressful but loved the venue so much it was going to be worth it. When I found out that Nashville Event Space had wedding planners on staff and that they were some of the top people around I instantly decided on the full coordination package. Let me tell you...BEST MONEY I SPENT!! Sarah Ann was beyond perfect, really words cannot describe how much I love Sarah Ann. We only met a couple times in person over the 9 months of planning the wedding. She immediately understood what we wanted for our wedding, I only showed her a couple pictures and she went with it. I am a person that really likes to be in control with all of the planning but it was so easy to hand everything over to Sarah. She was able to coordinate everything for us...catering, cake, blocks of hotels, transportation for the wedding party, hair and make-up, florist, anything you could think of. Even when she was on maternity leave half way through the wedding planning her back up helped out with all of my questions and kept things moving.

The week of the wedding I really only had to worry about getting to Nashville and meeting my family as they arrived. People were constantly asking me what I had to do in the upcoming days for the wedding and surprisingly I really did not have much. Sarah Ann took care of everything!! She was always available via email, phone, text message and even searched around for the perfect shade of Tennessee Orange for the linens for my fiancé. When I first walked in the day of the wedding prior to my first look I was already blown away with the venue. Sarah took care of details I would have never thought of, the mason jar chandelier over the stage/dance floor blew me away. It was so perfect as was everything else. All of the vendors that were recommended to us were amazing and really worked with us.

We have received so many compliments on our wedding. Guests said that they walked into the venue and it just felt like my husband and I, this is was the feeling I was hoping for and Sarah and her team made it happen!! I cannot say enough great things about the venue and everyone at Nashville Event Space and Randi Events. Our wedding was more than we could ever imagine and words cannot even describe how happy we are that we stumbled on this venue and Sarah Ann!! It has been a couple days since our wedding and we are still recovering from our amazing party and Kyle and I are constantly talking about all the details and how much fun we had at our wedding!!

We had our ceremony and reception at the aVenue, and I could not have been more pleased. It felt very intimate for about 160 people. The draping and lighting is absolutely stunning. Our event planner was Julia Page-she is amazing. I cannot say enough good things about her. She was easy to get in touch with throughout the whole process. They guide you through rentals, lighting, food, draping, everything, and keep the invoice very organized, so you know where each penny is going. We used Chef's Market for food and cakes, DELICIOUS and highly recommend, as well as Branching out for the flowers. Their guidance for vendors, as well as ability to take care of the payments to each vendor is very helpful, especially day of. They take care of everything, and our wedding was more beautiful than I imagined it could be. We had a blast.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We loved our wedding reception at aVenue and got so many compliments! We loved the location being so closed to downtown ad we also loved how it can be completely customized to exactly how you want it to look! The venue itself is a blank space and everything is brought it according to what you want so it can truly be unique! We had about 200 guests and it was the perfect amount for the venue. Everyone had plenty of room and we loved the loft area. We had a mix of tables, high tops and the soft seating and it seemed to go well that way. Natalie, our coordinator, was SO helpful through the whole process and did a great job ensuring every detail was taken care of! She thought of everything and was so nice and easy to work with. My mom especially loved working with Natalie because she lives almost 5 hours away so having someone who knows so much about the local vendors was so helpful and a huge peace of mind for us. We used Chef's Market which was a great choice as well - we got a lot of compliments on the food. I loved being able to bring in our own alcohol as well. We saved a lot of money on that part of the reception because we were able to get exactly what we wanted. aVenue isn't cheap but I think it is totally worth it because its a unique venue and with Randi events being involved, you can really trust everything is going to be taken care of and no bad surprises!!
