    A Stunning Venue for Your Wedding

    The first time we stepped onto the Callanwolde property we instantly knew this would be our venue. Absolutely stunning both indoors and out. Our guests were blown away and continue to tell us how special this venue is. Staff was also so helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. Photography by Ashley White Photography.

    I had my wedding at Callanwolde and absolutely loved it! My guests were blown away by the venue! Little to no decorations are needed because of the old charm of this place and Anna was so helpful throughout the entire process! The courtyard is simply the best with the chandelier and drapery!
