Perfect Venue for our Wedding
From the moment we met with Mallory for tour, all the way up to our wedding, we knew we had chosen the right venue! The space was accommodating for all our needs, and possessed that old charm, while still maintaining a blank slate for us to customize. The marble large windows were the perfect backdrop and detail that required little decoration. Our ceremony and reception was upstairs, and cocktail hour downstairs, which our guests really appreciated! Their elevator made the whole event accessible for my grandmother, which was very important to us. Mallory was accommodating and responsive to all our needs throughout the process, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue.Sent on 01/05/2020

Classy and Accommodating
If you're looking for a classy venue that is experienced with bringing in outside vendors and lets you bring in your own alcohol, the Historic Dekalb Courthouse in downtown Decatur, GA is perfect! The venue is well-suited to hold a ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, caterers, photography, or anything else you might need. They're prepared and easy to work with. Not to mention the location - the courthouse is surrounded by hotels, transportation, and restaurants, which makes the visit easy for your guests. I have NO regrets about choosing the courthouse, and would do it again in a heartbeat.Sent on 12/26/2018
