Sanctuary Estate is a mansion wedding venue located in Cleveland, Georgia. This peaceful property is family owned and oriented, and has been so for many years. Back in 1990, Robin Rensink Kinsey purchased this property. Over the years, she transformed it into the stunning wedding venue site that it is today. From the moment you and your guests enter in through the canopied drive, you will feel as if you have entered a haven that is peacefully tucked away from the rest of the world in the Northeast Georgia mountains.

Sanctuary Estate Exceeded All Expectations
Our wedding and the whole experience leading up to our big day was amazing. My husband and I do not live in Georgia, so planning the wedding through emails, and a few short visits was surprisingly easy. Robin and her team, Cindy and Tim, were great to work with. Robin was really nice and accommodating to anything we needed. Cindy was the best coordinator. She was very prompt with email responses and super helpful with questions and ideas. Tim did an amazing job with the food and flowers. The bouquets and boutonniere were beautiful. We wish the night had lasted longer and so do our guests! They enjoyed everything as much as we did. The Sanctuary Estate did not disappoint, it went above and beyond expectations.Sent on 09/19/2019

We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner in the barn facility. The food from the caterer was amazing and the tables that Robin decorated were so elegant! Robin is so easy to work with and she has an attention to detail. We had a party of about 60 people and it accommodated us with lots of room to spare. I had so many of our guests say it was the best rehearsal dinner they had ever attended.Sent on 09/09/2019

The Perfect Wedding Venue
Sanctuary Estate was an incredible venue! Everyone we worked with did everything in their power to make the entire experience perfect, and it was. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and everything about my wedding was more than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend Sanctuary Estate to anyone for their wedding!Sent on 06/24/2019
The Sanctuary Estate is, by far, one of White County's most beautiful treasures! Hidden in the rolling countryside, Sanctuary Estate has a beautiful courtyard for your ceremony and extra large outdoors dance floor conveniently located beside a two story barn that would easily suit a large reception. We enjoyed DJ-ing there, beneath a canopy of stars, this past Summer! Looking forward to our next visit.
