The Blacksmith Shop is a wedding venue located in Macon, Georgia. This historic and restored 1890 venue has served many purposes over the years. In the year 2000, this blacksmith shop and carriage facility was renovated in order to provide couples with a more modern and updated space where they could exchange their vows. However, even though this venue now contains modern amenities, it still features many of the original elements. As you exchange your vows surrounded by the original handmade bricks and heart pine beams, you will be able to experience this historic Southern landmark.

The Blacksmith Shop is one of my favorite venues to work at. Aubrey makes it easy for the vendors to setup and load out. I've never felt rushed in any way. He is always friendly, ready to help and an all around nice guy! You can't do better than him!!
