    LOVE this Venue!

    The McGarity House wasn't our first pick for a venue, but as soon as we walked up to the property, we knew it was where we would get married. The entire property is beautiful, and there are so many possibilities for couples visions. You can get married outside on the green grass under the apple trees, inside the covered barn, or inside the ballroom. Melita is the wedding coordinator and she is AMAZING. So flexible, very informative, and willing to do anything for you as a bride. We love this venue!

    The best wedding venue in the world

    Where do I start?
    The McGarity House is perfect in every way!
    We looked at many venues that were expensive and did not offer as much as the McGarity House. The moment we stepped on the property, we fell in love. It has everything we were looking for: a 100+ year old plantation house, an elegant barn, a spacious ballroom, bride’s suite, groom’s suite, the sweetest apple orchard ever, beautiful trees with a chandler and couch underneath them, an adorable swing in the woods. The grounds are maintained impeccably with flowers and bushes around the buildings. It’s an absolute dream! The property is stunning and looks amazing in photos, but the best part is the owner and wedding coordinator, Melita Pritchard! She is the sweetest, most laid back, and calm person you have ever met! And trust me, you need her for your wedding day!!!! She went above and beyond! She helped decorate, her family took care of collecting gifts and cards, parking, set up, and clean up! She made sure everything ran smoothly and all the guests were happy! She made sure my husband and I had everything we wanted! I truly can’t thank her enough! The McGarity House and Melita will make your wedding day the most special and magical day of your life!!!! ❤️

    What can we say about The McGarity House? Melita and her staff are outstanding. The house is gorgeous with eclectic pieces throughout the house that make you feel as though you've stepped back in time. The grounds and orchards are absolutely gorgeous! The new ballroom gives plenty of room for guests to eat, dance & have fun. With the new ballroom and the wrap around porch, The McGarity House holds more guests than most venues in Metro Atlanta. If you like it, book them! They book up quickly! We are pleased to work with Melita and the crew!
