Try this link http://www.atlantabridal.com/local/reception/  it has an extensive list of venues in and around Atlanta.  I think that the Old Courthouse on the Square in Decatur and Tucker Plantation allows you to have your own cater.  I am not sure what their prices are though.

have you tried the atlanta contemporary arts center or the solarium? both are inside the perimeter and quoted me at your budget limit a few months ago. they might be edging on the small side, but if you don’t mind everyone not having a ceremony and reception seat, they might work.

Try Clayton Co Water Works building. it’s called The Shamrock. Very beautiful and affordable. I’m having mines there

I looked at these before deciding to do it all in my Grandmother’s back yard where I could do what I want for however I want:

Bickley’s Lake, you get the whole place for $600

The Angora Hall at the Clarkston Community center. I believe she quoted me around $1000 for the biggest room to have from 2 PM to Midnight.

We also considered the Shamrock and the barn at Nash Farms, but were told no alcohol and I want alcohol at my wedding.

I agree with the recommendation of Shamrock Community Center. It’s a blank slate that you can really get creative with. There are plenty of pretty portrait opportunities next to the lake. Here are a few photos from wedding I photographed last year.

I’ve also photographed a wedding at The Solarium.  It’s more expensive, but it’s also really  nice. It feels very light and airy.

Not sure if you’ve found one, but we’re having ours at the Locust Grove Event Center. It’s similar to the Shamrock center but a bit newer and with some different finishes; we looked at both. I think it’s around $1200 for the 8 hour block. It’s gorgeous!

Here is the website for anyone interested:

Hi! I’m looking into doing my wedding at the Shamrock in October.  I loved your pics and wanted to know how they converted to the reception.

 

Thanks!

I see you had your wedding at the Shamrock.  How did you handle converting from wedding to reception?

My and my husband got married at Vecoma at the Yellow River 2 months ago on April 17th. Its all inclusive, they provide pretty much everything and its very affordable. the venue is not too far out of town. Its near stone mountain park and its BEAUTIFUL. here’s a link to their website http://vecoma1.com/ You can also check out their facebook page. Tell them that you were refered by Danielle because she had a great experience. 🙂 I believe they can hold up to 250-300 people their minimum is 50 people.
