The historic John Oliver Michael House is a charming 20th century farmhouse surrounded by beautiful oaks. Sitting atop a knoll bordered by its own farmland of forty acres. It offers a very peaceful and private atmosphere for any occasion. We are located in Oconee County, 4 miles from Hwy. 316, 12 miles west of Athens, and 48 miles east of Atlanta. It is our pleasure to offer you the opportunity to host your wedding ceremony and reception at our historic home place.

The John Oliver Michael House has put together a pallet allowing YOU to achieve whatever style is yours':
A quant farmhouse decorated in a classic look that is timeless. Walking from the front porch of the John
Oliver Michael House you will meander along an antique, brick pathway leading you to many options for
your choosing for your ceremony and reception.

Beautiful oaks surrounding the farmhouse and "Oliver's Nest. Some of the oaks are draped with outdoor
lighting showcasing a beautiful outdoor setting for your ceremony and reception.
Oliver's Nest, a fun place to host your reception (should you prefer the indoors). We named it such as it
sits nestled in the shade of beautiful oaks. Once indoors, it's absolutely magical:
Hanging pendants and chandeliers.
Draped lighting from the wooden beams.
Black rod iron sconces along the white, washed walls.
A beautiful antique, brick ?replace.
Perfect for any Wedding Ceremony and/or Reception.

Our Wedding Arbor is cascaded in wisteria vines and showcased with strings of lights making a beautiful
setting for your ceremony. Or you may use the arbor for other uses making it unique for your personal style.
Everything is surrounded with ?elds of tall grasses (sometimes with a few hay bales in the distance).
It's your wedding, it's your day, "Make it Your Own"! And, we will help you "Make it the best"!

    My experience with The John Oliver Michael House was excellent and I am so glad I chose to have my wedding at this venue!

    I absolutely loved having my wedding at the John Oliver Michael House! They made it so easy for me while trying to navigate planning a wedding during Covid. Doreen is the sweetest, Brittany helped planning go so smoothly and Jill was a fabulous coordinator and made our rehearsal and wedding day run perfectly! I would highly recommend this place and their team!

    We loved EVERYTHING about this venue & the wedding planner, Brittany. The buildings & properties are well maintain & add a unique & personal touch for your special day. Everything about the venue has a vintage, rustic feel. The grounds are shaded, which helps wedding guests be comfortable when having an outdoor wedding. Having access to the farmhouse the entire day of the wedding provided us with a getting ready area, beautiful "getting ready" photos, a kitchen for lunch, & place for family members to rest & wait for the wedding. I also believe the value to be exceptional! We chose the "Classic Wedding" package & the fee included the wedding planner, & in addition, allowed us to use our own vendors for cake/cupcakes, flowers, DJ, etc. We also decorated the venue ourselves, which helped us meet our budget

    I could not have asked for a better wedding venue than the John Oliver Michael House! The family-run venue is incredibly helpful and flexible and easy to contact. I felt like I was at home with my own family and felt very comfortable that my wedding would go off without a hitch. The property is gorgeous and well-maintained. I HIGHLY recommend the John Oliver Michael House to anyone looking for southern charm, rustic elegance, and a family feel! It was perfection.

If you're looking for a great outdoor venue, make sure to look at the John Oliver Michael House!
