Brendalyn Bailey (Matron of Honor) - The Hillman Wedding

I (Ms. Brendalyn Bailey) could not have asked for a more elegant experience for my sister’s wedding.
The “Hillman” wedding (Mr. Izell B. Hillman and Ms. Beverly M. Bailey) was beautiful and fun. The rustic background of the “Blacksmith” downtown Macon facility was the impetus that gave this event its extraordinary appeal. Were the summer heat of the day, “we initially thought would be a problem”, the facility of the Blacksmith more than compensated by keeping everyone “COOL” and comfortable.
Christopher Marcs Designs (Mr. Graddick) was the planner and designer of the ceremony. Mr. Graddick arranged the rehearsal for the wedding party, kept the commencements moving in an orderly fashion, and continually made sure that all members of the event had everything they needed during and after the ceremony. I salute his professionalism, as well as, his dedication to our family. A big “thank you”. Each family was able to be assigned a particular table. Mr. Graddick was able to check everyone into the main area while keeping the precessions secure. For my family, security was a principle concern. The Blacksmith’s gated facility definitely helped to keep the family safe as well as the small children that also attended.
Michael Davis – (Personal Chef) SDR Personal Chef prepared the food for this event. Everything was delicious, hot and ready from the oven. I think it looked just as beautiful as it tasted. Mr. Davis was especially pleased with the commercial grade kitchen of the Blacksmith. There were many free surfaces available for food prep in addition to a large display area for the finish entrees, 2 convection ovens, 3 conventional ovens and multiple burners. “This made cooking a true delight”, said Mr. Davis.
The band had its own area in front of the main entrance that was easily viewed by all guest. And the high ceilings of the Blacksmith provided the acoustics in the room that made the music rise and fall from the ceiling to the wall. The sound carried smoothly from room to room over the PA systems. Music was done by the natives of Macon:
• Aj the DJ
• Mr. Dean Brown
• Mr. Harold Thomas
We thank these artists for their collective contributions to this great day.
The bridal suite and Groom’s man suite were centrally located in a perfect positon that allowed the wedding participants to have a private area away from guests. Both areas were separate and we could walk around without getting into each other’s way.
I do encourage and highly recommend this venue “The Blacksmith” for weddings, parties, and any large gathering where attention to detail, infusion of culture where life time memories are made. The size of the space, lights that come on at night in the court yard, the bridal suite, prep space in the commercial kitchen, guest restrooms, Bar service area, and the gated exterior were just a few reasons I recommend this location in Downtown Macon.
Mr. Alvin Bailey (father of the Bride) states: “It was the nicest event” .. I feel like the most blessed man in the world. This completes the things that I have most wanted for my life and my children. A few things that made this event extra special for me was: the fact that it was inside of the city of Macon. I didn’t need to travel miles to get this event completed, and there was enough room for everyone to be comfortable – and they really treated us nice.

The Blacksmith Shop is a beautiful, unique venue and it was a wonderful place to host our December 30th, 2017 wedding reception for our daughter and new son-in-law. Aubrey was so easy to work with and very responsive to questions. The kitchen is spacious for the catering team and the working pizza oven was a wonderful treat for our guests. We also used the brides room for our girls to get ready and then traveled by trolley to the wedding chapel. Everything was beautiful! I would highly recommend the Blacksmith Shop.

Wow is all I can say about this venue. From the first time I walked in to walking out on my wedding night everything was so perfect! Aubrey was an absolute joy to work with. He was very accommodating and worked with my vision for the reception. The venue by itself is GORGEOUS and classic. I would recommend this venue to everyone!! We had around 225 people for a buffet style meal and there was plenty of room. You will not be disappointed.
