About

On WeddingWire since 2010

The Hazlehurst House is a wedding venue located in McDonough, Georgia. This stately mansion has played host to many weddings and social events throughout its history. Couples and their guests will find a sense of sophistication amongst this historic home’s original architectural details.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue has a combination of indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate up to 300 wedding guests for your wedding ceremony and reception. Couples may hold their ceremony on the property’s front lawn. Stand on the red-brick sidewalk leading to the home’s grand two-story portico for a classic backdrop to your vows. A more private ceremony can take place in the outdoor gardens. The charming English garden wall and lush green landscaping give this space a feeling of peace and serenity. A beautiful veranda with white columns and garden views might be the perfect place for the newly married couple to host their reception. Inside, the venue’s ballroom is elegant but understated, which provides an opportunity for couples to personalize their event. Luxurious draperies gracefully fall beside the home’s large windows to allow natural light to brighten its rooms. Period fireplaces and original woodwork sit atop hardwood floors, resulting in a historical feel.

Our packages are customized to meet your needs. The Hazlehurst House will gladly accommodate your wedding shower, engagement party, and other wedding-related events.

History

The venue’s namesake, Cornelia Hutton Hazlehurst, inherited this property from her grandfather, who originally purchased the home in 1869. Mrs. Hazlehurst was known throughout the town of McDonough for her kind spirit and generosity. She enjoyed entertaining and welcomed the opportunity to host many of the area’s social events and parties. The property was purchased from the Hutton/Hazlehurst family in the 1990s. Since then, a number of renovations have taken place in order to restore many of the mansion’s original architectural details.

It was a perfect and magical day!!!

The Hazlehurst House is the best kept secret on McDonough. Our experience was truly magical as it felt like we were transformed into the Jane Austen era with their beautiful English garden and grand home. Felicia was amazing in helping us plan everything. Ashley was an incredible coordinator. The whole team was so kind and helped with every single thing we needed. Emily even got mud off of my daughter’s dress. It was a perfect and magical day!!

Exceptional!!!!

I don't even know where to start!!!! Actually, I do! Let me start with saying how AMAZING Ashley was from the beginning of this process all the way to the end. She made sure to reach out to me with any cool ideas she could think of. I gave her my vision for the Wedding and she went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect. When I was in panic mode she remained calm and helped me to relax. The wedding day was perfect, food was amazing, all the staff were so helpful and also went above and beyond, venue is BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so happy I chose this venue and have 0 regrets. I will never forget this day and all the amazing people that helped put it all together !

Amazing day!!

My wedding was absolutely perfect with the help of the team at the Hazlehurst house. They helped me plan every detail while giving me flexibility to incorporate my dream. Our coordinator, Ashley, was so sweet and kept everything to plan. The food and drinks were also amazing!! I would get married here a million times over.
