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.Sent on 04/26/2016

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 ;)Sent on 09/27/2017
The Gwinnett Historic Courthouse is a beautiful location for both your Ceremony and Reception. We have worked with them for many years now and truly enjoy their facility.
Now this is a landmark that is near and dear to us. Such rich history and beautiful architecture makes the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse one of our favorite venues. The staff is incredibly friendly helpful to vendors and clients. They host fantastic bridal shows that spark new excitement and creativity to brides wanting their big day to be just that much more unique and special. We look forward to working at this venue.
