Apart from the elegance and magic associated with the venue, all of the staff made sure that our wedding day was beyond perfect. They were extremely attentive from the very beginning, making us feel so confident about our day. If you are looking for extremely professional people to work with, as well as a stunning venue, the Atlanta History Center is your place.

We had our wedding at the History Center and could not be any happier with the choice we made. You won't find a classier or more beautiful venue...my guests were just in awe of the setting. Just as important, the staff made our wedding planning experience SO much less stressful! They are "all pro"- which makes a huge difference- especially when you're planning a wedding in a quick timeframe as we were (10 weeks!). Serena in the special events office took care of every detail and was such a pleasure to work with! We ended up having to move our ceremony indoors due to rain, so thankfully the Overlook ballroom was a beautiful "fallback plan" (as opposed to other sites we looked at where an indoor ceremony would've been in a closet). For the cocktail hour, our guests were able to pop into the museum's exhibit halls- which they loved. And then the ballroom was a spectacular setting, elegantly lit and decorated, for the reception. We were thrilled with it all!

I was so happy with my wedding at the History Center. We had the ceremony in the new outdoor terraces, and the reception in the Grand Overlook. Serena was great to work with, and all of our guests loved the venue. It was very easy to do the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one beautiful, convenient location.

My daughter truly had the perfect wedding at the Atlanta History Center. We needed a venue with an outdoor wedding area and a ballroom large enough for 250 people. The AHC was one of the few places that had both. Steven Dickenson was very professional and easy to work with. He worked well with our other vendors.
Luckily the weather held and the ceremony was on the lawn behind the Swan House. It was beautiful. The Overlook ballroom is a wonderful space; spacious enough for a large dance floor and the acoustics were great. The bartenders were also good.

From the moment we say this venue, we knew it was going to be where we would be married. We had the wedding on the Swan House Lawn and the reception in the Grand Overlook ballroom. Everything was great and Robin was very helpful. Our only complaint was the service of the bartenders. Otherwise, everything was perfect!
