"We went in thinking that Cardre was not where we wanted to get married, but we checked it out anyway. As soon as we walked in, we knew it was the place. It is in the heart of downtown Memphis, with easy access to everywhere. It is a historic building with old architectural features like no other place downtown. The style fit perfectly for our Black Tie Winter Wedding. It is just a beautiful building that does not even need a lot of other decor because the building itself is so gorgeous. Besides the building, the girls that head events there, Kelsey and Betsy, are amazing to work with. Kelsey and my event planner worked closely together to ensure everything was perfect. It is also a great place to hold both the ceremony and reception, which is what we did. Couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else."

"Beautiful building with ornate, gold detailing throughout the building. Kelsey was the sweetest and most helpful/accommodating wedding coordinator. We had the night of our lives! The only downside was parking and the distance from our church. Many have ceremony and reception in one location."
