Local Venues: Chattanooga Whiskey Event Hall

Leah & Jacob Mundy  |  Chattanooga Whiskey Event Hall


Leah and Jacob’s relationship began like any good relationship – over burgers and beers. But instead of devouring them, the two were serving them up in style. Leah was working at Urban Stack as a hostess, while Jacob was employed as a server. The duo immediately hit it off and tied the knot nine years later on a crisp November evening.

For Leah, one of the most memorable moments of the entire night took place just before the ceremony. “Our first look was something that was incredibly special. Our photographer convinced us to carve out that time, and it was so worth it,” recalls Leah.

After photos, it was time for Leah to walk down the aisle in her stunning dress with a detachable train. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds took a group photo in the barrel room of Chattanooga Whiskey before guests moved on to whiskey tours and a cocktail hour.

“I just was so excited to be able to have all of our family and friends in our favorite city celebrating our commitment,” says Leah. “That’s a big reason we chose our venue. We wanted a place downtown since we had a lot of out-of-town guests, and I also wanted a space that we could make our own. Chattanooga Whiskey was perfect for that.”

Colors of rust and dusty rose brightened up the dark space and captured the essence of fall for the Mundys’ guests. The venue played perfectly into Leah’s rustic, nature-inspired look, and with the addition of some simple draping and bistro lighting, the wedding was nothing short of magical.

“I wanted to keep it simple. The space is beautiful, so there isn’t much you need to really do,” explains Leah. “The day was a literal dream, and I don’t think anything could have been smoother.”


How He Proposed 

“We decided to go out one Sunday for a waterfall hike. We ended up in the middle of the woods next to a creek, and I started digging through the water looking for rocks. Jacob called me over and said, ‘Leah, look at this rock I found.’ I walked over, and behind a log was a bright blue box. It was a complete surprise, but we never did find that waterfall!”
