    Our nuptials turned out beautifully and so did the weather. This outside of this venue is beautiful.

    My husband and I were beyond satisfied with the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. We selected the intimate wedding package and everything went smoothly. The staff were very accommodating from the time we viewed the facility to the actual ceremony. I highly recommend this venue. It was very cost effective for what we desired and very elegant.

    Can't say enough good things about our experiences at this venue---both as guests of others' weddings as as the stars of our own! :) I'm writing this review almost 3 years after we got married because in going back thru pictures & stories, I realized what an important part Gwinnett Historic Courthouse played in our happiness. The staff were incredibly welcoming and professional. As a bride, I was never bothered with questions, and my wedding planner + mother were given all the help they could ask for in executing the big day. We so appreciated getting to use the entire building--including the downstairs hall to showcase a museum of the personal artifacts from our love story, plus drinks, appetizers, and music! My privacy thru 2 dress changes was safeguarded from guests, and the setup/cleanup processes were a breeze for our team. The extra refrigerated storage made it easy for us, and they gave us plenty of access before the big day so we weren't rushed. Downtown Lawrenceville responds really kindly to all the weddings + events in the squares center, and we got some great honks & cheers while outside doing pictures!---which turned out beautifully, by the way ;)
