Gorgeous Wedding Venue!
Stunning venue that I feel in love with online. As a long distance bride it was challenging to choose a wedding venue, but I feel in love with Callanwolde as soon as I looked at the website and then even more so when I got to see it in person! It was absolute beautiful and unique. It feels elegant and homey all at the same time. The main room is magical with all the draping and lights that are up year round, which helps minimize decoration costs.Sent on 05/28/2019
Anna was very responsive during the whole process and was accommodating to our vision. We had a babysitter's room in the upstairs portion in one of the dance studios which was fantastic and I am so grateful that Callanwolde was receptive to that! Highly recommend this venue!

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!Sent on 09/26/2018
Callanwolde Fine Arts Center's reply:Hi Rachel!
Callanwolde is one of my most favorite venues in Atlanta. If you like historic, classic and a staff of professionals that love this old home, then go see it. Beautiful gardens for those special ceremonies, chandeliers adorning a breathtaking ballroom and the most elegant staircase in Atlanta. Take the time to look at their pictures online and schedule a time to stop by and consider this historic location. You will LOVE IT!. Geri Sims
