17 Fantastic Venues in Memphis Tennessee

I just want to throw out there that I love my city. Memphis Tennessee is definitely my home. I originally wanted to leave the city in the dust for college but I stuck around and went to the good old University of Memphis! From there I got to explore the city and ultimately figured out what the big deal was for this "little town in a big city".

I even found some fabulous examples of events at these locations from local vendors. Check out the links for more info about the weddings, their vendors, and of course pretty pictures of the venues!
