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.

Our guests were amazed at the beauty of the wedding venue, the food was delicious and the bride and groom were very happy! Choosing the Sanctuary Estate Experience was a great decision!
We appreciate the level of commitment by Robin, Cindy and the extended teams who made the Hutchins/Beauchamp wedding day an event everyone remembers for a very long time! Many thanks to the florists, caterer, and staging staff as well. This was a wonderful event, thank you!
With sincere gratitude and appreciation,

Outstanding Venue and Service
When we pulled up and saw the look of this venue we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. After speaking with Robin and hearing how eager she was to pull this wedding off exactly how we wanted, we decided to go with it! With a year of planning with here every time I contacted her she was always available with great input! Our wedding day was truly amazing! Everything was so smooth and planned great! I couldn’t imagine my wedding anymore perfect! We highly recommend the venue, staff and especially Robin!!Sent on 12/05/2018

Sanctuary Estate's reply:
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.
