Beautiful boutique hotel with exposed brick yaddayaddayadda- seriously though, SO CHARMING: I was here for a wedding and it was the perfect venue. ALSO, chef Bethany’s food is to die for! I would absolutely recommend, and I will definitely be back :)Sent on 12/03/2019

Beautiful & Seamless
We booked our mid-December wedding a full year out, and initially had some issues with responsiveness from our contact. However, that contact was quickly replaced with Lauren Hargrove, who is absolutely AMAZING! She was responsive, kind, professional, and made every decision feel easy. From the gorgeous rooms, to the amazing food, to the overall attentive and gracious staff - everything was seamless. The in-house chef personally attended our tasting to talk us through each dish, and he was just as kind and professional as Lauren. All of our guests also raved about their experience, which meant a lot to us. Would absolutely recommend for any brides/grooms to be!Sent on 01/09/2019
Graduate Athens's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Taran! Congratulations again, and we hope to have you back to stay with us soon!
We enjoyed our experience with the Graduate! We had the pleasure of working with Jessica and she was very welcoming and tended to our every need during our performance for a beautiful wedding! Would recommend them to anyone!
Once again, The Graduate Athens was awesome for the ceremony in the Pavilion and the reception in the Foundry. Thank you to Emily, Jessica, John, and James especially for helping with last minute needs and for having such great staff who react instantly! Great food and beverage and wonderful staff helped make our day as coordinators easier
Vendor & Venue relationships are so important, more than any of our clients will ever know. So when we as Wedding Planners are partnered with a responsive, organized and professional venue & catering team, there can be nothing but greatness that can come as a result of those two forces coming together. I can say that working on our January 2015 Couple's wedding with Emily at Graduate Athens and her esteemed team was one of the smoothest processes that Murphy's Law could throw at us. The wedding weekend presented itself with non-stop rain, changes in plated food choices and corresponding seats, all the way down to a medical emergency that required swift & discrete action. I know that the day's activities would have been 100 times harder on my team without them on our side. I welcome the opportunity to work at and with Graduate Athens for more stellar service and seamlessly planned events.
