Venue Setting

The breathtaking grounds, gorgeous gardens and lavish décor of Riverwood Mansion have made it the seat of Southern hospitality since the late 1700s. The grand Greek Revival columns and entryway along with the black Egyptian marble fireplaces, and grand chandeliers lend a certain Southern sophistication to the mansion that inspires classic romance. It’s easy to get swept away by the grandeur of the space and the grounds, which are lined with towering magnolias whose sweet blooms make the grounds all the more romantic. Whether you're looking for a vintage or modern feel for your event, both seamlessly compliment the ornate architectural elements and period details of the mansion. The sweet Southern charm and hospitality of the venue keeps the whole place from feeling stuffy. The resulting style is refined yet soft and cozy.

With 8 acres of manicured grounds and gardens, interior access to the historic mansion, and an onsite pavilion, Riverwood Mansion offers a range of flexible event space and all inclusive packages with custom design and detailed options.  Our location is secluded enough to transport you to another time, but also just minutes from the heart of Nashville, in the creative and artistic East Nashville community.
