I’m looking for basically the same thing, only I’m trying to max out at 10K for venue/food/bev. All in one catering and especially beverage service can REALLY add up, so I’m actually specifically looking for venues that are BYOB (many of our guests don’t drink, but with all-inclusive, you often have to pay per person regardless) and flexible catering. Are you looking for strictly a reception venue or a venue that could do both? I know this is a crazy list, but here goes:
5 Seasons Brewing–you just have to hit food and beverage minimums, which range from $2K-$6500 on Saturdays, depending on area you use.
Callanwolde–I think $6k for rental (unclear online) for Saturday, but you can BYOB and have total freedom for catering. Minimal decor needed here, too.
Cator Woolford Gardens at Fraser Center–$2K-$4800 depending on the time of year, must use preferred caterer, but BYOB.
Historic Dekalb Courthouse–$3400, preferred caterer, BYOB.
Fernbank Museum of Natural History–$2K+ if you don’t use the Great Hall, not sure on catering/alcohol. I emailed them yesterday; no response yet.
Freight Room–Not clear online, but used to just be meeting a catering minimum w/Distinctive Events. The numbers I saw online were $29+/person for food, $19+ for alcohol.
John Michael Oliver House–$2,900-3,900 depending on time of year, any caterer, BYOB. ~1 hr out of town, though.
Lake House at Avondale–$1800, any caterer, BYOB.
Magnolia Hall at Piedmont Park–$3,700, w/$2700 alcohol minimum. This was too pricey for us, but prob doable for $15k.
The Marianna–$2,000 food/bev minimum, must serve Wrecking Bar beer, no space for ceremony. Very cool venue, though.
Miller-Ward Alumni House (Emory)–$3K, must use preferred caterer, alcohol through them.
Monday Night Brewing–$3K, any caterer but I think no kitchen? Lots of food trucks in the pics I saw online. I think must use their beer but otherwise BYOB?
Oglethorpe University–$625-$2750 depending on what spaces you pick. Not sure on catering/alcohol.
Rhodes Hall–$3500, preferred caterers, BYOB.
The Rock Barn in Canton–$1200 rental fee, not sure on catering/BYOB.
Roswell Founders Hall–Must tour to find out pricing, but online searching indicates in your range. Must use Talk of the Town and go through Founders Hall for alcohol. Offer all-inclusive packages, though.
Roswell Historic Cottage–I emailed about pricing yesterday but haven’t heard back. Any caterer, BYOB.
Roswell River Landing–$1100, any caterer, BYOB.
Sandy Springs Heritage–emailed about pricing, haven’t heard back, any catering, BYOB.
The Solarium in Oakhurst–$2,700, any caterer, BYOB.
Terminus 330–$3700, preferred caterer, go through them for alcohol.
The Warren City Club in VA Highlands–unclear, possibly just hitting food/bev minimums. Menus online, you can do some math using your anticipated guest list.
The Wimbish House–$4350 (includes, among other things, Chiavari chairs), any caterer, BYOB.
