The Gardens At Great Oaks was a romantic wedding gift from the renowned Reverend Pratt to his bride on the occasion of their marriage in 1842. A lovely and secluded estate with a canopy of century old trees and magnificent and breathtaking gardens becomes the perfect backdrop for every wedding. Complete with wild flowers, primroses, blue bells, array of roses, gardenias, and hydrangeas flooding your senses of sight and smell. Fountains, artistically designed lighting and gazebo all to create an elegant …lush….romantic setting. The Gardens At Great Oaks is a premiere venue where dreams become treasured memories and the bride should have the wedding of her dreams. During the reception, we would be delighted to give your guests a tour of Great Oaks, and even Reverend Pratt can assist in the tours. Our preferred caterers will serve the beverages of your choice and our special beverage consultant will tell you just how much alcohol to purchase, combining the elegance of our premier property with the economics of todays savvy bride.
The grounds are private, peaceful and beautiful throughout the year. Although this is one of the most exceptional sites in historic Roswell for a wedding celebration, The Gardens At Great Oaks is also an excellent choice for social and corporate special events.

Memorable wedding moments are made in The Gardens at Great Oaks...... Wedding video....Click here

The first time my fiancé and I met Joi we knew this was the place to have our special day. She was very open to our ideas, and did her best to make sure we could make an amazing wedding happen at this location. I liked how she was up front and so welcoming. There are no hidden costs or stipulations. We had a very tight budget, but I am so excited that her and Tamzen (wedding coordinator) have been able to make it work! I toured many other locations but nothing compared to The Gardens at Great Oaks. Joi and Tamzen have been so helpful with their experienced guidance as we continue to plan our wedding. You should definitely take a tour and see what I am talking about! She even gives you cake when you visit!

My husband and I just got married at The Gardens at Great Oaks and we cannot imagine anywhere else for our perfect day. As former consultants and currently living in NYC, we needed to work with a venue that was very organized and accommodating with our limited time to view the site and make decisions with vendors. Joi and Tamzen, the team at the Gardens, really do help make your dream come true, and when your day finally arrives, you really don't worry about a single thing besides enjoying every moment. The vendors they recommend are spot on and have a great working relationship with the Gardens (so important to ensure everything runs smoothly!). They give enough options for you to have options and personalize based on what you want. They are extremely helpful when it comes to suggestions and provide thoughtful feedback --- take what you want and make it your own. The site itself is amazing; getting ready in the bridal suite in the house made everything very easy (and Joi pampers with champagne and sandwiches), pictures were beyond gorgeous at the hundreds of photo ops around the estate, and our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception each felt so unique and special all at the same property! We had about 130 guests seated indoor/outdoor, a staged band, and our dance floor was set-up under the stars with Italian lights strung over it -- truly magical. Our day was perfect in every sense, not a single hiccup or issue, and as someone that has high expectations of others I really can without a doubt say it was the team at the Gardens that made it happen. They don't operate like other venues that operate 'wedding factories' with multiple events a day, they pour their hearts into it all. If you're looking for a whimsical, romantic, garden wedding with lots of options on the estate and fantastic partner vendors, this is the place.

If you want a beautiful garden wedding and people who care about your big day then choose the Gardens at Great Oaks. Joi and Tamzen are the best wedding planners I could have ever asked for. I felt confident in their services and most importantly I felt like I was there number one priority when it came to what I wanted for my wedding. They are honest and care about your budget. I got married on October 1, 2016 and it was one of the best days of my life. My husband and I were very happy with how well everything turned out. All of the vendors that they provide you with are excellent. Definitely check this place out!!!

The venue is amazing, especially the grounds which are full of flowers, including roses, hydrangeas and gardenias; there is also a beautiful fountain, gazebo and a rustic arched well. Everything is elegant & chic yet simple all at the same time, which is exactly what I was looking for. The natural beauty of the estate was decoration in itself, which was very important to me given my distance & limited ability to supply extra décor. Throughout the year of planning, Joi was always immediately responsive & beyond accommodating and understanding, which was extremely comforting. The day of the wedding Tamzen and Joi kept everyone and everything under control & were both were running around non-stop ALL night long to make sure everything was perfect. I have never seen two people more dedicated in my life. It was beyond apparent that their main & ONLY concern was that my husband, family, guests and I were all happy and satisfied. At one point, we ran out of white wine & they coordinated with our catering company who was nice enough to go and pick up more for our guests. They made it impossible for me to stress about anything and if that wasn’t enough, Joi even helped me cool down when I was drenched in sweat from dancing in the heat! My guests were all thrilled with the entire experience, which consisted of a tour of the estate by an incredible tour guide, cocktail hour with appetizers & drinks, the beautiful ceremony, a Russian/family style dinner & dancing outside under a gorgeous white linen tent with Italian string lights. Directly next to the dance floor was the Ajax hall, which is where we cut our cake & where our guests could sit if they preferred a quieter setting or if they wanted to cool down a little. As many of my guests were traveling from out of town, it was important to me that they had an ‘experience’ versus just a wedding ceremony. Thanks to Joi, Tamzen & the beauty of the Gardens at Great Oaks, I can honestly say that my wedding day was perfect!

The venue is beautiful – the gardens are pristine. The team goes above and beyond to make everything seamless and perfect. Joi and Tamzen do a fantastic job and literally take care of everything – I can’t begin to say how many times they went above and beyond. Joi does an amazing job negotiating amazing prices with the vendors (top notch vendor list, at that) and throwing out various suggestions in order to customize everything to your liking. One thing that I must say is that if you have any potential pain points or concerns, rest assured that she will take care of everything allowing you to have a care-free and amazing day. So if you want a beautiful setting, fantastic food, amazing service (before and during the event) and want to enjoy your day without a worry in the world, do yourself a favor and go visit with Joi and Tamzen, you’ll be glad you did.

1) Joi and Tamzen are both direct and very kind. My Mom, now husband and I all came for a tour back in February. With only being engaged 2 weeks we were still working out details on a budget. They were realistic and very up front. NO OTHER venue that we toured (which was about 5 around the Roswell/ATL area) were that direct at cost for EVERYTHING (food, dress, entertainment,etc.) This was extremely helpful when examining this option and our budget overall. listing out pricing for every detail so we really had that bottom line price was extremely helpful in making this decision because other venues seemed to come with add on costs throughout the process that were not mentioned. Tamzen and Joi work as a power duo from there making suggestions and really listening to the brides desires.
