Whether you are viewing the room from the inside or out, the Rotunda (or round room) is a fascinating sight at the Country Music Hall of Fame. It's also part of what makes weddings at the Hall of Fame so rich.

The circular design
It's no accident that brides choose the circular design of the Rotunda for their important wedding ceremony and sometimes their reception too. The circle symbolizes eternity, has no beginning and no end, and is all encompassing. It is a popularly used symbol that is very significant in weddings, hence the use of wedding rings. Like the circle, marriage is an institution that is to remain unbroken. (Note the inscription on the walls of the Rotunda.)
The Rotunda is one of the few places where you can wed in the center and be completely surrounded by your loved ones. Imagine the humbling experience of saying your vows as your family creates a circle of love around your marriage. How awesome. Given the circle's eternal meaning, it's no wonder why so many brides are drawn to the Rotunda at the Country Music Hall of Fame. This unique room allows your guests two seating options - 1) in round - where the guests encase the wedding couple in a circle 2) or traditional - seating right or left of couple.
If you are looking for an incredible venue, one that is symbolic and historic, the Rotunda room at the Country Music Hall of Fame might be just the venue for your wedding day.
