About Dunaway Gardens

Dunaway Gardens offers one of the most beautiful and exclusively private settings in the Southeast for elegant weddings, fitting a range of budgets. Offering 25 acres of lush botanical garden grounds, our brides select from a variety of outdoor ceremony sites, from the historic Arrowhead Pools to the hidden Hanging Gardens, to the ancient Wedding Tree.

We can easily accommodate cozy to large weddings with ample parking and golf carts to comfortably transport guests and the bridal party to and from ceremony and reception sites. We provide climate-ready tent facilities for receptions and offer catering packages designed to ensure that your special event is all you imagined.

Wedding fees include a 10-hour event period, choice of ceremony site, use of historic pre-Civil War cottage for bride and bridesmaids, golf carts to comfortably transport guests and bridal party, ceremony and reception set-up and break-down, chairs, climate ready reception tents, tables and linens. A selection of dining accessories is also available.

Visit our History page to take a step back in time and explore the rich and colorful past of Dunaway Gardens, originally opened in 1934 as a theatrical training ground for some of the country's most beloved stage performances. The spot where Minnie Pearl, herself, got her start, and Walt Disney loved to visit, the gardens enjoyed their heydey during the famous Jazz Era. Buried beneath years of neglect and a carpet of kudzu, Dunaway Gardens was reopened in 2000 to once again share her past and beauty for memorable occasions.

    A Fairytale Venue

    My wife, Brooke, and I knew we wanted to be married in an outdoor garden venue. We didn't want it to be as prim and manicured as a formal English garden, not as rustic as a sprawling farm. We wanted our special day to be nestled in diverse foliage, with charming, informal spaces in which to gather and celebrate.

    Being from NYC, our dreams felt way out of reach after visiting incredibly expensive venues in the tri-state area. After digging through hundreds of search results and dozens of listicles Brooke happened upon photos of Dunaway and we decided to take the chance of making a weekend visit to Atlanta to see if the shoe would fit.

    Thankfully it did! Even though our initial visit took place during a rainy weekend, Dunaway's beauty is absolutely unparalleled. After driving about 30 minutes outside of Atlanta proper through rural roads, when you arrive at Dunaway's front gates it truly feels as if you are stepping into a fairytale kingdom.

    Elizabeth is knowledgeable, professional, creative, and works tirelessly to help you create exactly the wedding you are envisioning. We decided to hire her as our day-of coordinator and would highly recommend it to any couples getting married at Dunaway or elsewhere in Atlanta.

    The most amazing part about Dunaway (and something that's hard to communicate through photos alone--you really have to go visit) is that it's a huge property with many amazing settings that can be used in a multitude of combinations for both your ceremony and reception. Our guests were enamoured by the natural beauty of the gardens and gushed about how they felt like they were in a different world.

    Dream Wedding Venue

    Getting married at Dunaway Gardens was an absolute dream. From the moment we drove through the gate, we knew this was where we would get married. The grounds are so beautiful and so unique. Our wedding guests could not get over how stunning the setting was, and we received so many compliments. It was truly a magical day in large part to the scenery. The team at Dunaway Gardens was wonderful to work with. They were communicative and patient with all of our questions and kept things running smoothly the day of the wedding. I also can verify that it is handicap accessible, as my father is in a wheelchair and was able to access the ceremony site and reception tents. It was the perfect venue for our wedding!

    The moment we pulled into Dunaway Gardens, we knew it was the venue for us. The grounds are so beautiful, like something out of a fairytale! Elizabeth and Josh were extremely helpful and accommodating. Elizabeth was very informative and helpful when it came to choosing our other vendors and throughout the planning process.
    This truly is the perfect venue! And the photo ops are endless!
