    We had a fantastic experience in choosing the Dekalb History Center for our wedding. The staff members we worked with were all very responsive and helpful, and Mallory was always able to set up times for us to visit the space. We chose a preferred caterer from their list, which made the process extremely seamless, as they were very familiar with the venue.

    A few HUGE perks: 1) being able to bring items ahead of time to store. This was a huge help, as we were able to load in all of our decorations and alcohol the Friday before, so it took a lot of the headache out of setup. 2) You can supply your own alcohol. This was a huge cost-saver for us, and seems to be a rare option for many venues. 3) The space is absolutely breathtaking. We both fell in love with it immediately. It feels so grand and sophisticated without being stuffy or pretentious. Our guests just loved it, and the photographs are gorgeous.

    My single suggestion for improvement would be to update the bridal suite a bit. It feels a little neglected and dated compared to the beauty of the ballroom and lobby. The space is quite functional for getting ready (and there's a small kitchen for snacks and champagne!), but it doesn't provide the best backdrop, so a little sprucing up would make a huge difference.

    Overall, we couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend the venue to others looking for a gorgeous and surprisingly affordable event space.

    Thanks so much for the kind review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time here. Thank you for recommending that we update the bridal suite. We just completed a full renovation of that area. Check out our facebook page Historic DeKalb Courthouse for pictures. Thanks again!

    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.
