The Junior League of Memphis opens the doors of its historic Community Resource Center to the community as a wedding and event space. The building was originally built in 1921 as a home for Mr. C.R. Boyce, a successful Memphis cotton buyer. A residence until 1979, the home was used as office space until the Junior League off Memphis purchased it in 1991. Described as Memphis’ finest example of Italian-Mediterranean residential architecture, the building is the perfect backdrop for weddings and receptions. Stately oak trees surround the home, and its verdant gardens include two gazebos and a large fountain that provide endless photo opportunities. Inside, the grand hallway accentuated with a Palladian window is an elegant entrance to an intimate indoor affair.
The Junior League’s lush lawn can seat up to 200 guests for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, while the spacious interior is an equally romantic setting for slightly smaller gatherings. With plenty of space to set up tents, you don’t have to worry about inclement weather spoiling your big day. The home’s sunroom is the ideal spot to set-up a bar, and your guests can shoe off their best dance moves on the front patio!
