Step back in time at the Primrose Cottage, a wedding venue located in Roswell, Georgia. The cottage, which is an antebellum-era estate, has been standing proud in the city since 1839. While it originally started off as a gift for Roswell King’s daughter, the venue eventually transformed throughout the years into a charming ceremony and reception site for couples looking to add a dash of southern elegance. As an added bonus, this venue places you and your guests right in Historic Roswell while still giving you the convenience of being near Downtown Atlanta.

Regardless of the wedding season you choose to exchange your vows in, you will be surrounded by beauty everywhere you turn. The garden is filled with seasonal plants and provides you with a natural and quaint hideaway.

Beyond Fairy Tale Wedding Venue
We cannot sing the Primrose's praises enough. I had no clue on how to plan a wedding and the Primrose had it all, we just had to pick everything out. It was a one stop shop which was perfect. They have their décor and caterer specialists in house who had the most beautiful options to choose from, and the food options were OUTSTANDING. They also had the best recommendations on photographers, limos, DJs, and local hotels to accommodate our guests. The venue itself is gorgeous. Its so unique and charming, we fell in love with it. We got married in May, and prior to our wedding week, we only saw the venue in the winter months and it was stunning then, but during the spring with the gardens in bloom it was like living in a fairytale. All our guests loved the venue and thought it was the perfect place to hold our reception. We had 100 guests and it was a perfect size and could have easily held much more. Our guests loved that they could go out in the garden and roam the house throughout the evening. Once the sun set, the garden lights made the outdoor space amazing. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the Primrose was and how they wish they'd gotten married "in a place like this". From when we booked the venue with Donna, she made us feel so special. Every time we went back to the venue and ran into her she always was there with her bright smile. Jessica was outstanding during the planning process. She was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, patient, kept us informed on every detail, and extremely organized. Its evident she is extremely good at her job from the moment you meet her. Anna was our day of coordinator and was just fantastic. From making sure we were on schedule and ate our dinner, to refreshing our drinks all night, it was a weight off our shoulders to know we didn't have to think about the little stuff and could fully enjoy our reception. To Donna, Jessica, Anna, and the rest of the staff at the Primrose thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding reception a dream come true and beyond anything we could have ever imagined!!!Sent on 06/13/2019

Above and Beyond our Expectations!
Primrose Cottage went truly above and beyond my expectations with our wedding. We wanted a venue that we could basically just show up on our wedding day without a worry and that is exactly what we got. The planning process was seamless and they gave great suggestions and guided us step by step through setting up our day. On our wedding day, we showed up and they directed us each step of the way. The decor and food were AMAZING and I still get compliments on the food and flowers. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking! It is worth every penny and more! We got the wedding of our dreams!Sent on 04/29/2019

Primrose Cottage made our wedding day magical!
From start to finish the people that work at this venue were incredible. My husband and I toured the venue shortly after we got engaged and fell in love immediately. We still toured a few others but we found ourselves comparing them to Primrose Cottage. Donna gave us our tour and answered all of our questions. Donna continued to promptly answer my millions of questions even after we left. My goal for our wedding was to not have to do much and just show up, and that’s exactly what I got with Primrose Cottage. They did everything! There were only a few vendors that we had to book ourselves. After we booked our wedding, Jessica helped us through the detailed planning process and made sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it. It was so stress relieving to know that someone was making sure everything was being coordinated. Anna was our day of coordinator and she was the best! The whole bridal party was commenting on how great she was! The actual wedding day was everything we thought it would be, plus some. The grounds of the venue were beautiful, everything was decorated as discussed, the food was EXCELLENT, and the staff was super nice and accommodating. Our guests kept raving about the food and how delicious it was. My husband and I couldn’t have agreed more. We were so happy that our special day turned out to be more amazing than we had hoped. I would recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 06/14/2019
