My husband and family could not have been happier with our choice!!!! We planned our wedding from out of state, and the Wimbish House was on the schedule of 6 venues in Atlanta we chose to visit on a day tour last year. We saw the Wimbish House and fell in love immediately. The charm and layout of the house were just fantastic. It was finding a gem in the middle of a central location with neighboring hotels (Four Seasons & Marriott etc) for easy walking distance for our guests. In addition, we recommend DEFINITELY adding on the day-of coordination the Wimbish House offers. I have been in several weddings myself, where the bride and bridal party are running around trying to get vendors in the right area, determining the correct timing, etc. Not only did our wedding go to schedule (no joke right???), but I honestly felt so relaxed and carefree to enjoy the time getting ready with my family and friends. If there were any hitches with the transition from first look, ceremony, cocktail hour, to reception, I had ZERO idea!! Karin and the Wimbish House team did a fantastic job!!! Our guests were impressed by the beauty of the Wimbish House (and we didn't have to do much decorating as well). And what we really appreciated as well was being able to hold all our events there. Truly an amazing experience.

Beautiful venue, seamless day, everything PERFECT!
If you want a fantastic wedding day in an amazing venue, you have found the place. The Wimbish House is classic, elegant, and extremely beautiful. Karin and the team are phenomenal and everything went perfectly. We couldn't believe how great it was! She was extremely detail oriented and made sure everything was done to my exact specifications - she fixed last minute issues and made it all work out. I wasn't stressed on my wedding day... because of Karin. She is just that amazing at her job.

Best wedding decision we made
The Wimbish House is a special place run by amazing people. The venue itself is breathtaking and extremely versatile with the main ballroom, but literally two other floors of beautiful rooms for people to gather and socialize, and for the happy couple, wedding party, etc. to have some private time. The staff, led by Karin Holben, one of the coolest people on the planet, go above and beyond at all stages of planning and on the big day. We also loved that they know all of the major vendors in town, including ours. So, everything went very smoothly. Many of our friends and family said, "best wedding ever." And it really was the happiest day of our life, thanks in very large part to the Wimbish House. Without reservation I give it the highest possible review.
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
I have worked with the Wimbish House for two of my wedding and events. The most recent one was challenging however, their team (Karen, Barbara, Dianne) were amazing! Very detailed! I look forward to working with them again soon!
The Wimbish House is one of my favorite venues in Atlanta. It has two great pianos, is in the heart of midtown, and has an upscale feel without being too huge or intimidating.
