Callanwolde Fine Arts Center Weddings
This gorgeous Tudor mansion has such a rich history in the city of Atlanta. It was the home of the Candler family of Coca Cola fame and is listed on the National Historic Register of Places. Now, a community arts center, it's owned by Dekalb county and operated by the Callanwolde Foundation. It hosts art & dance classes, jazz concerts and is one of the most popular wedding venues in Atlanta.
Why I love it
The grand staircase with the large stained glass windows, the beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds, the intricate ceilings, the arched doorways. What's not to love? With a great photographer, you're guaranteed beautiful photos of your wedding day.
With a 27,000 square foot mansion, greenhouse and 12 acres of grounds, there are several locations to have a wedding at Callanwolde. The Great Hall is perfect for indoor ceremonies. The gardens, the front lawn and the amphitheater are options for an outdoor ceremony. The front terrace and the courtyards are gorgeous locations for cocktail hour. The reception hall with draped fabric, chandeliers, and large windows is very picturesque.
With such a large venue, you'd think they host several weddings a day but they typically only host one wedding at a time.
