Get married at the Tennessee

Let the Tennessee Theatre sweep you into its ornate beauty and history for your elopement or vow renewal! 

Due to the absence of touring activity at the Theatre during the pandemic, we currently have the ability to play a memorable role in your very special day, and we are pleased to do so. It has been several years since the Tennessee hosted nuptials, but this quiet time provides the perfect opportunity to do so once again.

These budget-friendly packages are designed for small, simple, low-key affairs. Surrounded by a few close friends or family in the opulence of the Official State Theatre of Tennessee is an intimate and unique experience for vowing your love and devotion to your special someone.
