I lived in the Athens area for eight years! 

I’ve heard The Farm at High Shoals is a great venue. Also, I recently came across a place that looks really neat but is fairly far away: In the Woods. 

Hope you find what you are looking for 🙂

Hooray!! I’m getting married at the Chimneys at Big Canoe and before I got to that part of the post I was coming to recommend. 

 

Our wedding is in June! and I’m so so so excited about the venue. We have so many guests who are making a week long vacation out of it just because of the area. It’s where my fiancé and I vacationed together for the first time and we fell in love. 

 

We live in south Florida but love to hike and camp. If you have any questions at all feel free to reach out!!

Also, we invited around 100 and are expecting about 90 guests at least that have already booked cabins or gave other confirmation they are coming from either south Florida or Michigan! No guests are local at all. The cabins provide a cool experience that makes more people willing to travel I think–something different than “just another hotel”

slorsc :  Not sure if these would interest you because of the driving distance, but there’s Chateau Elan (winery) and Lake Lanier – the grounds for both are very natural and stunning.

ETA. One of our family friends got married at the botanical gardens chapel and had the cocktail hour outside, and main reception in the butterfly garden (sorry – I don’t know the correct term). It was beautiful.

Have you checked out Summerour Studio? It’s one of my favorite venues I’ve been to in Atlanta for weddings. I haven’t been to Ashton Gardens but I LOVE the chapel! 

As someone who always has to fly in for weddings, I so, so appreciate when I don’t have drive super far. I’m glad to you are keeping your guests in mind!

slorsc :  Summerour studio is nice, but it’s the complete opposite of a chapel and it’s in an industrial part of ATL.

 

Check out Callaway Gardens. They have a gorgeous chapel located in a wooded area on a lake. The reception space is a short walk away.

Here is the chapel at callaway:

Here is one of the reception areas (they have several though, even a more traditional ballroom)
