The Stanley House was the perfect choice for my wedding venue. They took care of everything from the wedding decorations to the clean up after the wedding was over, not to mention it was absolutely beautiful. The guests were very impressed with everything about our wedding and it will always be one of the best memories of my life. The Stanley House couldn't have been more perfect.

My sister was married at the Stanley House and we could not have asked for a more wonderful experience. Meg and her team made every effort to make our experience seamless and perfect! Every detail was thought out. We had the pleasure of renting out all the rooms upstairs as well. The beds were extremely comfortable and much needed after a long day! We were awoken to a full service breakfast which was wonderful. Thank you for the wonderful night and for sharing the Stanley House with us!

Meg (the wedding coordinator) was magnificent...we met with her in April 2014 for a tour of the Stanley House. She was very informative, professional, and pleasant...answered all of our questions to our satisfactory. We were always kept abreast of what was needed/wanted for our wedding...from the time we met Meg (for the tour), booked the venue, had a first planning meeting, and up to the end of our wedding day. It was very little we had to do to prepare - Meg made sure that all the decorations & set up of the ceremony/reception were what we requested. If I had to do it all over again (and I am praying that I do not - smile), I would definitely have Meg as my coordinator at the Stanley House. The only negative comment that I have is that I was not too happy with my bridesmaids bouquets - my colors were grey, turquoise, and dark purple; therefore orchids were used in MY bouquet. However, the bridesmaids bouquets were white roses with light blue baby breaths. Nevertheless, this was my error - I should have viewed the flower arrangements with the florists before the wedding day.

My husband and I LOVED the Stanley House! We fell in love with it the moment we walked in. The place is cute and quaint and the staff were very helpful. I didn't feel like they were trying to get all my money and they did a lot of the other services (like catering, flowers, bar service, etc.) too, which made my life SO much easier. Trust me, it helps so much to have all your services in one place. The cake vender they work with was wonderful. Beautiful and tasty cake! The staff catered to all my wants and needs and were professional about it. Overall, it was my perfect dream wedding and I have the Stanlwy House to thank for that!

The Stanley House Mansion was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. It was not a first marriage for either of us. Everything was provided. The staff made sure that everything was done in professional manner. It is a wonderful value. We could not have picked better venue. If you are having a small intimate wedding and you are watching your budget, the Stanly house will more than satisfy you!

The food was delicious, served hot and on time. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend The Stanley House to anyone in need of a rehearsal dinner or small wedding.

Our wedding was PERFECT!!! Exactly as I had imagined it! Meg, Joseph, and the team were nothing but professionals and catered to our every need! I am still getting compliments on our ceremony, food and the overall house. We planned our wedding in a couple months time and Meg did everything she could to help! I used all of the vendors she recommended and they were all wonderful, professional, easy to deal with and did everything they said they would do! The flowers were beautiful (thank you Melissa), the cake was delicious (thank you Jennifer), DJ met all my crazy requests (thanks DJ Randy), and the photographers were spot on with all the priceless shots (thanks Jon and Tamera)!! I can't recommend the Stanley House enough! I would not change a thing!! THANKS to everyone!

My daughter's wedding was absolutely beautiful with very little work from me! Meg was wonderful to work with! We had last minute guests to work in to the ceremony and all fell in to place beautifully. Meg is very professional with a lot of suggestions to make the wedding fit in perfectly with the style and tradition of the Stanley House. We purchased the "Skinny Minnie" package and felt as if we had a wedding of more value than we expected. The cake and floral vendors included are absolutely wonderful! We will use them again as necessary for future events. Thank you again to Meg for allowing me as mother of the bride to have a truly stress free wedding day with my daughter, all I did was enjoy the day and time with family! Loved it!

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!!! I really can't express in words just how wonderful everything was and how happy my fiance and I and all of our guests were. The setting was gorgeous, the flowers by A Delicate Petal were beautiful, the food from Adriane's Delectables was raved about, the photographer Patty Hampton seemed extremely competent and fun (excited to see how the pics came out!), and our overnight stay in the house was sooooo comfortable (those beds are like clouds). Last but not least, I'm convinced that the coordinator, Meg, is a demi god in disguise. She is so competent, on track, and has such a calming effect that I had 100% confidence in her the whole time. To echo what another review said, Meg gives you what money can't buy - peace of mind. Thanks again to The Stanley House and all their vendors for making our wedding a huge hit!!!

The hospitality was overwhelmingly great. Meg, the Inn hostess, made us feel as if we were in her own home and that our daughter's wedding was the most important wedding on the planet, Even though we knew they had two others after us that weekend. Meg was amazing in every way! The wedding and reception was beautiful. Everything was handled warmly and professionally. We stayed at the inn for two nights and loved how they managed their timing without the hint of stress.. We will go back sometime just to enjoy the Inn.

The Stanley House was a beautiful place to hose our wedding. We received more than a few compliments after the big day. We escpeially loved working with their in house coordinator, Meg Hannon. She was absolutely wonderful!!! She was so very patient with everyone and great at keeping everything on schedule and running smoothly. The Stanley House also is a great deal! We feel like our money really went further working with all that they have to offer. We also loved the flexibility of being able to pick and choose certain vendors rather than using all theirs. I highly recommend the Stanley House for any of your events. They are fabulous!

I would highly recommend the Stanley House Inn. We purchased the Skinny mini reception only package. The owner, Cathy worked with our budget and helped us find a reception that we could afford. Meg, the wedding planner was always available for questions and responded to them in a timely manner. The Stanley House provided lots of decorations and we were able to bring in our own as well. The Stanley House staff set up all the tables and chairs and the decorations before the reception and cleaned it all up when it was over. All we had to was show up. I could not have asked for a more perfect reception.

I had my wedding/reception at the Stanley House July, and now that I've finally come up for air, I want to write this overdue THANK YOU for the best ever day of my life. Most of my family and guests were from New York, and not easily impressed, but they raved about their experiences that day. Wedding was just perfect, buffet beautifully presented, food delicious, staff so friendly, attentive, and the bartender, Joseph, terrific. Classy was the most common word used to describe everything. But it was all put together by my wedding coordinator, Meg. Thank you, Meg, for all the calls you took, all the good advice, the planning meeting, rehersal---for being there for me all the way. You gave me what money can't buy, peace of mind. You are a brides best friend!
I will cherish my Stanley House wedding all my life. Thank you!

I had my wedding/reception at the Stanley House July, and now that I've finally come up for air, I want to write this overdue THANK YOU for the best ever day of my life. Most of my family and guests were from New York, and not easily impressed, but they raved about their experiences that day. Wedding was just perfect, buffet beautifully presented, food delicious, staff so friendly, attentive, and the bartender, Joseph, terrific. Classy was the most common word used to describe everything.

We couldn't have asked for a better place for our wedding. Our coordinator, Meg, was fantastic!! She was so helpful during the planning process and the actual wedding. The value was incredible - especially on a tight budget. The outdoor area is perfect for the wedding and reception (as long as the weather is nice - it was perfect for us). Joseph the bartender is also great, and the entire staff is so friendly!! I definitely recommend staying overnight - the rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is delicious! This was the perfect place for our wedding and everyone made the day so special.

I can not rave enough about the Stanley House. They took care of all the details and tried to make it as stress -free a day as possible. Even when miscommunications happened they were taken care of quickly and handled to keep my day running as smooth and stress-free. The venue was beautiful and perfect, the food got tons of compliments from my family, and I can't thank Cathy enough for everything she did for us. I totally recommend the Stanley House if you are looking for an intimate wedding.

The service was excellent.... everything went exactly as promised. The food was out of this world, and the hospitality - exactly what you would expect from a southern mansion! Lloyd and Cathy went out of their way to insure our stay was perfect.

My daughter was recently wed at the Stanley House, and we were very pleased with the results. From the initial meeting 10 months ago, we always felt like we were the most important wedding they ever had. Our cordinater, Meg, was great. She was always able to answer the questions we forgot to ask. She was able to diplomatically handle a relative who was doing the flowers (a feat of its own). On the day of the wedding from the second we arrived we felt at ease as everything was set up as discussed. The ceremony went off without a hitch, the reception was beautiful, and the bride was satisified that this WAS the wedding of her dreams. All of our friends and relatives have had nothing but praise about the wedding, and we have nothing but praise for Meg and how she helped make it all happen! The caterer, the cake, Nellie the D.J. all were fantastic. I would suggest the Stanley House to my closest friends.

We had everything at the Stanley House for the wedding. Rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. Everything was just like we wanted it. You hear that something always goes wrong at a wedding. If it did we never knew about it and neither did anyone else. Their recommendations for caterers, photographers, etc. were excellent. The bed and breakfast was wonderful. Out of town family stayed there, we (parents of the groom) did too and I am so glad we did. The breakfast was wonderful and the rooms are very nice.

Our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Stanley House Inn in early October and we are still hearing comments from friends, family members and even the vendors about how wonderful and unique it was. The setting of course was gorgeous, but I was most impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Cathy Kilday, the inn's owner was able to accommodate our needs in spite of working within a tight time frame, She also suggested vendors that were equally professional. The wedding planner, Meg Hannon was marvelous in helping to coordinate the activities for the rehearsal and the dinner, in addition to the outdoor ceremony and the reception following. She has a quiet and calming approach, and yet addressed and attended to every detail. Also it was a joy to interact with her husband Joseph who served as our gracious, charming and knowledgeable bartender. I can highly recommend the Stanley House as a venue for creating an enjoyable and memorable event.

I recently stayed at The Stanley Inn while on vacation. The B&B is beautifully decorated and very clean. I was not there to attend a wedding event, however it appeared to be a beautiful place for a reception. The parlors were set up for an event being held that weekend and everything looked very pretty. The rooms are well lit, spacious, and offer a very romatic ambiance. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the Atlanta area.

Preparing everything for a wedding seemed impossible for me; I was completely overwhelmed and did not know where to start.
But then I found the people at The Stanley House, and all of a sudden all my fears disappeared.
They took care of absolutely everything in a wonderful way, down to the tiniest of details. All my wishes, no matter how trivial, were granted, and it was affordable!!
I had a wonderful wedding!
They all are wonderful people and all gave 200%, even more in the case of Meg!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Thank you all again so very much!

The Setting:
Nothing but beautiful! The house is warm, welcoming and filled with Southern Charm without being even a little bit kitschy. When I chose the Stanley House I hadn’t even thought about the affect it would have on my pictures! Every image is positively radiant with a charm that you just can’t get from a neutral banquet hall.

The Package:
My husband and I chose the KIS package. After some research we decided to bring in our own photographer (Colby McLemore—very professional and travels!). Cathy and Lloyd Kilday had no problems with this at all deducted the photographers cost from the wedding plan immediately. It was a breeze! I had been dreading it, thinking they might have a “team” thing going and that I might accidentally come off as insulting, but my worries were for nothing. In addition to a photographer the KIS package includes catering, a DJ or pianist (we went with DJ), a florist, a cake, a day-of wedding coordinator and 4 hours reception time. Our cost was a little extra because we wanted to have our ceremony there as well, which added 2 hours, a getting ready room, and a free overnight stay/breakfast for the bride and groom. Oh, all the set up, tables, chairs and linens were also included!

The Big Day:
Meg was our wedding coordinator—we met her a few weeks beforehand and she made the whole process seem simple! On the day of the wedding she handled coordination with all vendors, timed our events, kept our maid of honor and best man informed, and was perfectly sweet to all our guests.

Our wedding was absolutely PERFECT. Thanks to Meg, Joseph (our bartender), Cathy and Lloyd of the Stanley House, Ami and Cindy of Big Girls Catering, Jennifer of Confection Perfection, Melissa of A Delicate Petal, Randy of Straight Entertainment and Colby of Colby’s Photography…we had a night we’ll never forget, and no reason to want to! I recommend the Stanley House to everyone.

Searching for a intimate wedding venue in Atlanta is not easy. After finding The Stanley house in a search, I quickly called and spoke with the on-site wedding coordinator. Cathy Kilday was very helpful and eager to meet all of my wedding needs.

I visited The Stanley House later that week and I can tell you first hand that the pictures on the website do not compare to the beauty and splendor of this immaculate home! Rich with American history and Southern charm it is a must see.

The ceremony was performed by Cathy's husband, Lloyd. It was beautiful and soul-stirring.

My husband and family were very impressed with the decor and service that The Stanley House offers. With a golden day atmosphere and modern touches, my family and I enjoyed our wedding cake and champagne while watching the Falcons and Rams game on the plasma tv!

I would highly recommend The Stanley House for your wedding event.

The wedding planning was very easy at the Stanley House. Since I lived 1 1/2 away the flexibility with my schedule was limited. (I also work a full time job.). The wedding went smoothly and all of the vendors the Stanley House contracts with were excellent. If you would like a wedding without all of the headaches this is the place for you. We had approximately 80 guests and everyone had a wonderful time. The Stanley House has everything at a one stop shopping location, (planner, caterer, photograher, DJ, florist, cake designer, etc) This was a wonderfull experience and I would recommend this venue to anyone.
Perfect Wedding!!! Meg is great.

They were amazing! This house is amazing and BEAUTIFUL, a wonderful background in pictures.
We got so much for our money. They have packages to choose from and will edit them to fit your needs / wants. From the beginning the staff was polite, helpful and understanding. Even responding to my questions while she was on vacation! We ended up changing our wedding date and there was not a problem with it at all. Also, I didn't have to worry about every little detail because they have done plenty of weddings. They also have a "Day Of" wedding coordinator. When I didn't have a clue on what to do for certain things they always had options and examples for me to choose from.
My only issue was that the staff dressed a little too everyday on our big day. Considering they were seen by our guest throughout our ceremony and reception I felt they should have been dressed business casual.
I would highly recommend them to EVERY bride in the Atlanta area. The price and enviornment they offer can not be beat and trust me I shopped around!! Our guest loved the Southern and intimate feel the house gave and even inquired to use the facility for events themselves!

The Stanley House is a one stop wedding/reception facility. I had a charming wedding at the Stanley House. The staff during the wedding was exceptional. I was very pleased and impressed by them.

The food was very good, but a little cold. The temperature did not really matter because everything was tasty. The cake was done by Confection Perfection. The taste totally blew me away. It was so delicious.

The flowers were done by A Delicate Petal. They were also very nice. The florist did a great job recreating my bouquet from a picture I had shown her.

The photographer was Patricia Hampton. She took lovely pictures and made everyone feel great and look great.

The only challenges I had were with the owner, Cathy. My family complained about feeling rushed through the rehersal. She changed our time because they scheduled a wedding on the day of the rehearsal. Also, on the day of the wedding she decided to put my personal belongings out of the bridal changing room and locked the door to the room. I had to change out of my wedding dress in the public hallway. It would have been nice to know that I needed to make other arrangements. Just throwing my stuff out and not telling me about it was awful.

The experience was lovely for all the guest. On the surface everything appeared to be wonderful from their perspective. I am very happy that they had a good time.

All the vendors did a good job and are highly recommended. The owners picked a great support team. They have a great formula for producing nice weddings. Overall, they did a good job.

I recommend the Stanley House, but be cautious. There is a very good chance that you will be subjected to the owner's antics.

The Stanley House itself is a beautiful setting for a wedding and reception, and my guests all had a great time. We had a small budget and a big guest list, so we settled on the Stanley Hosue as the best option for an all-includsive package. I worked with all the venue's preferred vendors included in the middle package, except the photographer.
All the contracted services were great, but working with the Stanley House was frustrating!
Owner Cathy will often not respond to emails. She showed up an hour late to our planning meeting, and then had us wait while she led another interested couple through a tour of the house for a half hour. I'm not a very demanding person, and I felt very overwhelmed trying to deal with her.
On the day of the wedding, the ceremony ran smoothly and was beautiful, but reception time was chaotic after dinner. Cathy had planned the events of the reception with me, but she left after the ceremony and a woman I'd never met was left in charge. That woman didn't know the order, and kept asking me to make decisions on the spot, which was very confusing. We felt rushed through the night, which resulted in no one checking the upstairs dressing room and my belongings being left behind. The staff and owner were not friendly or accomodating, which was difficult for a nervous bride.
Overall, I suppose we got what we paid for. If you know exactly what you want and can organize your own troops on your wedding day, you should be able to direct the events. I was looking for help from someone who has held dozens of weddings that wasn't willing to help me and was very rude about it.
PS I'd like to note that Cathy emailed me after an initial version of this review published to clarify some issues, which let me know that she does care about this business. Though she offered no apologies, she gave me some perspective on some of the events that upset me.

The Stanley House itself is a beautiful setting for a wedding and reception, and my guests all had a great time. We had a small budget and a big guest list, so we settled on the Stanley Hosue as the best option for an all-includsive package. I worked with all the venue's preferred vendors included in the middle package, except the photographer.
All the contracted services were great, but working with the Stanley House was frustrating!

Stanley House Mansion responded with the following comments:

The management and staff at the Stanley House work very hard to make every bride’s wedding experience positive. We are very disheartened when we receive a review like this. We did contact the bride, Alyssa, and we will take her criticism to heart. We are happy that she thought that the Stanley House was a beautiful setting for her wedding and reception, that the ceremony ran smoothly and was beautiful, and that the guests all had a great time. And, she gave all of the Stanley House vendors a 5 star rating. She also said she had a small budget and a big guest list and that we fit the bill for what she wanted to spend. The pictures were beautiful. We apologize and wish the couple all the best.

The Stanley House is a great place to have a Wedding and is very beautiful. That being said, my review is based on the owner of the property who needs to go into another line of work. She was short, rude and very unprofessional during the rehearsal and the event.

Her staff was fine for the most part, but we found out later that they were taking food and deserts out the back door for themselves. Not very professional!

The owner is not someone I would recommend to anyone that would like a pleasant experience. If she is willing to be in the background and let her staff take over, then I would be happy to recommend the Stanley House.

We ended up having a GREAT day and Wedding, but we had to finally tell one of the staff to keep her away from me (Dad of the Bride). Once they did that, all went well!!!
