Perfect Southern Design Venue - O'More College of Design

Nashville brides really do have a variety of venues to choose from when planning a wedding. When I was contacted by a upcoming bride last year, I immediately became excited by her non traditional venue selection. O'More College of Design is nestled in the heart of downtown Franklin and oozes with southern charm.
Founded in 1970, the College is located in the historic district of Franklin, Tennessee. O'More is patterned after Le College Feminin in Paris, France, where our late founder, Mrs. Eloise Pitts O'More, studied in the early 1920s. The Abbey Leix Mansion (ca. 1866), an Italianate-style home which serves as the College's administration building, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The campus is situated on seven park-like acres, two blocks from the heart of charming downtown Franklin. Nestled in between historic homes and centuries-old trees, the setting itself fosters creativity.


Looking forward to adding our very southern & elegant touches to such a unique Nashville wedding venue!

I have never thought of this as a wedding venue either! What are the restrictions? Do you have to be a student? I have driven by before and it is very pretty there!
