We’re thinking of having a very intimate ceremony at City Hall followed by a private dinner party ‘reception’ of about 40 people. We want our wedding to be relaxed, spend quality time with friends and family and have really great food.
Any recommendations on great restaurants in Atlanta to have this type of event? I’d like it to be more upscale as we have a budget of about 3,000 for this. It would be an added bonus if the private dining space had a patio and cute lights/decor. We are open to having a small ceremony at the restaurant if it makes more sense logistically.

Open Table has a list of restaurants with private rooms in most major cities.

Park Tavern is a lovely place for a reception! It has several rooms of varying sizes to rent out, including the patio which overlooks Piedmont Park and lights up in the evenings. La Tavola in VA Highlands is my favorite restaurant, not sure about cost to rent out the place…

I am not from Atlanta but when I was there a couple of months ago I went to the rooftop of Ponce City Market and they had a couple of nice resturants with nice patios. Maybe you coulod rent out a space there overlooking the city?

I went to a bridal shower at Lure in Midtown last year. Our group was about 35 people, the private dining space was beautiful, and the food was excellent. I wasn’t a host so I don’t know about prices but it is worth giving them a call.
Bonus: you could have your ceremony at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, take some beautiful photos, and then walk over for dinner, although I bet it’s pricey.
