Cumberland River Park is a family friendly, and filled with incredible architectural elements that will be incredible for proposal photos! At night the view of the city scape is breathtaking and will make for a once in lifetime moment. Go out to dinner, take a stroll through the Explorer Trail before popping the question!

War Memorial – Places to Propose in Nashville

If you’re looking for something that encompasses Nashville and is in the heart of it all, insert the War Memorial. The War Memorial is one of my top places to propose in Nashville based on its location in downtown, but also the history, and versatility. It’s located across the street from the state capitol and won an award for its architecture when it was built. If you’re looking for a spot that is full of rich history supporting a great cause with breathtaking scenery, this is it.

Cheekwood Estate & Gardens

Next, Cheekwood Estate & Gardens is the perfect proposal spot for the couple looking for a luxurious and intimate experience. They charge a fee that costs $350 and comes with two general admission tickets for the couple, and two tickets for the photographer. Plus a dual membership to Cheekwood, two branded champagne flutes, and a small bottle of champagne to celebrate! They are open for proposals from Tuesday to Friday from 9 am to 3 pm. If you’re looking to have a photographer to capture it all, book one ahead of time as the Cheekwood doesn’t offer an on-site photographer.

In the spring the greenery throughout the park is incredible, and being one of the largest parks in Nashville over 3,000 acres – it’s breathtaking.
