The Woodruff-Fontaine House Museum is not only a beautiful place to get married but a piece of wonderfully-preserved Memphis history.
Built in 1871, the French Victorian mansion has been host to weddings since the 19th century, with several sites for a ceremony on the property. When the weather is agreeable, the front lawn of the Woodruff-Fontaine house is a scenic and beautiful place for a wedding ceremony and can accommodate up to 250 guests.
For a smaller wedding or cocktail hour after the ceremony, there is a lovely side garden fountain. In planning a wedding reception, the Woodruff Fontaine House has gorgeous options.
The Club Room, located inside the main house has a rustic, charming feel with French Victorian details in the architecture that stay true to the time period of the house. The club room is actually made up of several rooms featuring exposed brick and fireplaces. The Club Room can accommodate up to 125 people (as a fun side note, this is the room where I was in a wedding for the first time when my mother got married. I was nine years old so the room felt magical!)
In addition to the historic charm that a wedding at the Woodruff-Fontaine House provides, they also have an in-house special event and wedding coordinator to help any bride through the wedding planning process. Brides, if you’re interested contact Michelle Williams.
