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!
