Wedding Ceremony + Reception
Live Wire Athens was our venue for our wedding. This place was a very good size for our list of 120-130 guest. The exposed brick and barn doors added a homey feel while still feeling formal enough. If in the summertime, there is a courtyard for the ceremony and an inside area for dancing, food and everything else. We were even able to have a fire pit and hot chocolate bar in the courtyard for our Winter Wonderland. They also have a parking space for a food truck and the most gorgeous string lights around! This family-owned business will work with you as best as the can to make your wedding day a dream.

Extreme satisfaction with Live Wire Athens (Casual wedding reception)
After 35 years, my high school sweetheart and I reunited and Live Wire Athens handled our reception. Our experience with them from start to finish was exceptional. After meeting Andrew upon our initial appointment, we knew this was our place. He handled everything with such professionalism, yet kept it at a relaxed level, which was exactly what we needed. He even brought things to our attention that we did not even think about...all to help make our event the best it could be. I recommend them highly, and would use their services again.

Live Wire Athens Wedding Venue
My daughter and new son-in-law were married at "Live Wire Athens" on November 3rd, 2018. What a great venue a wedding, reception, and the dinner! The venue is run by the Robertson siblings - Daniel, Brenden, Andrew and sister Erin! All great people that were very invested in our event going off without a hitch! Live Wire Athens has a rich history with the "Athens Music Scene" - so the venue had it's own character. We had a lot of out of town guests - so we held the wedding and reception at the venue. The staff staged the evening perfectly! I would highly recommend the Live Wire as a wedding venue! Many thanks to Erin, Andrew, Brenden, and Daniel - your hospitality was fantastic!
