    Very Helpful- Worked with us on Morning Wedding Timing

    Brent was incredibly helpful during our wedding planning process. We chose to do a Sunday morning brunch wedding, and they allowed us to come in early in the morning on the day of to get ready and finish setup.

    My bridesmaids and I also rented their house across the street from the theater, which was lovely.

    I love them!

    This was my saving grace. I was not having any lucky finding a venue that was right for us. Then, a friend told me about this place and it was perfect! Booking was so easy and Brent was so helpful. 10/10 recommend :)

    So glad I found them!

    Stuart's was the perfect wedding venue for us. My heart was set on an Athens-area wedding, and really wanted to lean into it's local charm (that I love) -- looking for a little more character than university space, but a little more infrastructure than a barn. I was so excited when I realized Stuart's Opera House was expanding their lobby space! The finished product is gorgeous, open space with tons of natural wood warming it up and giant windows that offer great natural light, and it feels really authentic to the history of the building, which I loved. I spent very little money on additional décor as it really wasn't needed! I thought their rates were really reasonable too, and Brent was so wonderful to work with! He was super patient with and responsive to all of my (and my mother's, which I will forever appreciate) crazy wedding-planning questions, concerns, and requests, and worked with us to pull off exactly what I wanted. Our reception was a blast and I couldn't have been happier with my experience with this venue!
