Labyrinth Garden
SEATING FOR: 20 GUESTS | PRICE: $1,675

The Labyrinth Garden is our beautiful round garden containing one of only two permanent outdoor prayer labyrinths in Nashville. An international peace pole stands in the garden’s west end, with “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in seven languages. Cherry blossoms and dogwood trees burst with color in the spring, ripen to a vibrant summer green, then transform into a rich, multi-colored canopy in the fall. Our historic bell tower creates the perfect, breathtaking backdrop for your garden ceremony, and the space easily converts to an open or tented reception after you say, “I do.”

We provide setup and breakdown up to 20 white garden chairs for your guests, if you wish to use them. Or, you may rent/supply, setup, and breakdown your own.
