    Beautiful, Versatile Venue

    My daughter was recently married here and it was such a wonderful experience! You can transform the space so many different ways and it really has a "Wow" factor. All of our guests raved about the food and the service and we couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. The Blue Room that can be used as a bridal suite is super convenient and makes a beautiful background for getting ready pics as well. We found it to be one of the more affordable venues in the downtown Atlanta area too!

    We had our wedding at GFD October 2017 and it could not have been better. Brittany and Kinisha were who we worked with and they were extremely helpful with everything. The responsiveness was amazing. We even went through the two of them for day of coordination and flowers. Brittany was everything you wanted in an event coordinator. She was knowledgeable, got married herself there so she knew what worked and what didn’t, went with my vision and gave input that I knew I could trust. The venue itself was large enough for us to host the ceremony, reception, and cocktail hour in its own sections of the GFD. THE FOOD. The food was amazing!!!! (Thank you Gladys!) We had fried chicken, short ribs, and Mac and Cheese. Everyone is still talking about it. When we were selecting venues the things I heard about GFD was that food was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. If there was one piece of info I could share with you is the GFD is a little bit hard to find because it’s a little bit set back off the street and since it’s on a one way street if you miss the turn you have to go around the block. Go ahead and put on your invites the ceremony starts before it actually does just in case someone gets lost. Also, if I could do it all over again I would have bought out the pay to park lot in front of the GFD. It rained on our wedding day so a lot of our guests were stuck out in the rain paying to park. Of course wouldn’t have been a big deal if it wasn’t raining. BUT If you’re trying to stay in budget and can not afford to buy out the lot- tell your guests to download the Parkmobile app and they can pay to park in the zone 70302 just on their phones and reload time if needed directly on the app. My husband and I loved the GFD and we hope to be back there again someday soon! Thank you again to Brittany, Kinisha, Gladys, and the rest of your team. You made our special day so incredible.
