Finding the perfect Atlanta wedding venue means matching the location of your dreams with the reality of your budget. Atlanta wedding venues come in all shapes and sizes from luxury hotels to affordable eco-friendly locations. These are some of the best venues the city offers in no particular order.
#1. Primrose Cottage – An authentic antebellum mansion located in Roswell offers you a wedding location steeped in history. Its Tara-like exterior provides traditional photo opportunities for outdoor weddings. The grand Overlook Ballroom holds large wedding receptions while the outdoor gardens is the perfect locale to dance the night away under the scent of magnolias.
#2. Vecoma at the Yellow River – Embrace the natural beauty of Atlanta with Vecoma at the Yellow River. Nestled in Snellville just outside of Stone Mountain, this wooden lodge lies within a private forest along the Yellow River. Vecoma is the place to be for a city wedding with a natural view. The intimate reception hall has a dance floor for romantic interludes.
#3. St. Regis Atlanta – Buckhead knows luxury, and no other hotel pulls off high-end weddings better than the St. Regis Atlanta. Your guests will love the finely appointed rooms while you’ll say ‘I do’ amid the marble courtyard of the Grand Terrace. Live it up like it was the Gilded Age by waltzing to classical music in the spacious Astor Ballroom.
#4. The Inn at Serenbe – In contrast to the pomp and formality of Buckhead, the Inn at Serenbe sits at the heart of Chattahoochee hill country in Palmetto. The sweet smell of organic farms and fields of wildflowers can’t help but ease all your worries away on your special day. Serenbe is part of a sustainable community and everything about the venue from the catering menu to the guest rooms is eco-friendly. The pastoral setting of the Lakeside Pavilion is the ideal place to serenade guests with a laid-back band.
#5. Canoe– One of Vinings’ best restaurants, Canoe was inducted into the Restaurant Hall of Fame in 2005. Small wedding parties can find a home here under white tents in the garden while sampling some of Canoe’s world famous cuisine. The intimate setting makes this a wonderful location for an acoustic band.
#6. Paris on Ponce – If you’ve ever had vivid absinthe dreams of a Moulin Rouge style wedding , then Paris on Ponce is just the place for you. This non-traditional wedding venue allows you to break all the rules. Part antique store, part burlesque stage and part New Orleans jazz, it’s all about fun. Receptions are held in the Le Maison Rouge room and the performance-quality stage is the perfect arena for an enthusiastic variety band.
#7. Callanwolde– Once the home of Coca-Cola heir Charles Howard Candler, this historic mansion in Druid Hills is now a Fine Arts Center. Its designers spared no expense on the elaborate interior when it was constructed in 1920. You can get married inside this Gothic-Tudor mansion in front of the curling arches of its magnificent Grand Staircase. Photo opportunities abound and there’s plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. Guests can dance to the strains of the authentic Aeolian Organ that was recently restored.
#8. Fox Theater– The Fabulous Fox makes a grand setting for any wedding. An Atlanta landmark for generations, the Egyptian-themed interior is like nothing else in the city. You can host a wedding reception no one will ever forget in the Egyptian Ballroom. Make a royal entrance by walking up the picturesque Grand Terrace. A full stage and lighting system makes for a world class performance.
