Venue Highlight: Georgian Hall Athens Georgia
Downtown Athens is the place to be to get a dose of all things fun and unique. It’s no wonder that so many couples wish to get married in the heart of the Classic City and lucky for them, there are a number of venues that will gladly fulfill their wish. Today, we want to highlight a historic venue that is especially worthy of recognition: Georgian Hall.

Georgian Hall Athens Georgia

Located right behind South Kitchen and Bar, the grand ballroom is the perfect place to celebrate your wedding. Built in the early 1900’s, Georgian Hall became a distinguished wedding venue and a “social focal point” for most of the 20th century. Fresh from recent restorative reconstruction, the special events venue is ready to once-again host spectacular weddings, just like it did in its glory days. The venue’s staff will provide bar and catering service to up to 250 people and can host both ceremonies and receptions.

With its original mosaic tile floor and large arched doors, Georgian Hall can be a perfect location to host a multitude of uniquely styled weddings. Keep it simple with with classic styling, since the architecture is amazing on its own. To get this look, use clusters of all white garden roses in mercury glass vases for centerpieces on taupe, blush or gray linens. Or get your glam on using a mix of luxe linens (we love La Tavola) and sequined table runners. Along with some amazing menu selections, The Georgian Hall provides all your tables, elegant chiavari chairs, and complimentary basic linens. A great value for the Athens area.

Creature Comforts Brewery, Athens, Georgia

I’ve been a fan of Creature Comforts Brewery since I first found out about them- and not just for their craft beers! Located in a warehouse that formerly housed a Chevy Dealership followed by a Tire Company, the building underwent a remarkable transformation- without sacrificing any of it’s historic charm. The original tinted garage door windows claim the front of the building, while inside, huge brewing tanks line up like dominoes along a back wall. Within, a vaulted ceiling of interwoven wood and steel beams overlook two bar areas, each featuring backsplash walls of reclaimed wood, colorful chalkboard menus, and copper pendant lights. As an event space, Creature Comforts Brewery is a unique addition to the list of venues in, and around, Athens. It offers up a trendy, industrial atmosphere to the Athens wedding scene, including a host of great brews!
The pics above give a glimpse of a recent photo shoot I put together at the Brewery. Thanks to Sara Wise of Sara Wise Photography for sharing the top pic with me at the shoot (and showing me some great photo editing apps:) Stay posted for more to come!!
