Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Built in 1928 and located in the heart of downtown Memphis, the timeless Cadre Building features a grand 13,000-square-foot ballroom with exquisite Art Deco architectural details, crystal chandeliers, and stately columns with hand-painted gold-leaf molding.
  • The venue can accommodate all of your celebrations: After your guests watch you exchange vows, they can mingle over cocktails on the spacious mezzanine while the ceremony area is transformed into a gorgeous reception space.
  • Elegant in-house décor and amenities offer even more options. Opt for lavish lounge furniture to add a luxe touch to your cocktail hour, and choose your own gobo lighting design for you ballroom reception—you can even book a horse & carriage for a truly romantic exit!
