Our Dream Venue
The Dekalb History Center was absolutely gorgeous and everything we could have dreamed of for our venue. It seated our guests comfortably and the marble walls went well with our color scheme. It was very easy to work with Mallory, and she was always in touch to see if we needed anything or give us reminders of deadlines. I would highly recommend this venueSent on 05/29/2019

Wedding Venue of My Dreams!
The Historic Dekalb Courthouse was the wedding venue of my dreams! I fell in love with the venue when my (now) Husband and I would go on dates in Decatur Square. When we got engaged, I knew I wanted to get married there- so I was so pleased when the booking process was such a breeze! The event team were amazing- Mallory was so nice and answered all of my (MANY!) questions. Every step of the process was so easy with this venue. They really helped me create the wedding of my dreams and it was so stress free. If you’re looking to get married in a gorgeous, stunning venue in a great part of Atlanta then this is the best place!Sent on 03/24/2019
The DeKalb History Center Price Rates
This is such a special venue. I've done several weddings here and clients have always loved it. The ballroom is beautiful and classic, an easy space to leave clean or to add decor to, but not necessary. We've had ceremonies and receptions here or just the reception. I look forward to working at Historic DeKalb Courthouse again soon!
As a professional wedding videographer for over 15, I have filmed numerous weddings at The Historic DeKalb Courthouse... It is a lovely, elegant location, with a beautiful and spacious room; for both ceremonies and receptions. It also has an historic quaintness to it! Highly recommended for you special day.
We've delivered many wedding cakes to the DeKalb Courthouse, and each time I am reminded about how beautiful a setting this is for a wedding. I highly recommend brides check out this venue!
