Perfect Wedding

We decided to have our wedding at The Wimbish House because it's in a very walkable area of Atlanta, the house itself is gorgeous, and Karin and Karina made us feel like we would be in good hands when we took a tour. While I did most of the planning, Karin dialed in the details and offered cherished advice on what would work best given our own preferences. We had a guest count of 117 people. We held the ceremony in the ballroom, then went into the Lucy Willard room upstairs for a private moment with champagne and appetizers. Meanwhile, the ballroom was flipped for dinner service and guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the main floor. After dinner, guests moved back up to the main floor for dessert and coffee in the conference room, and 3 tables were removed to open up the dance floor. All of these moving pieces/flips worked seamlessly thanks to Karin's direction, and multiple times guests told me how much they loved the opportunity to walk through the rooms on the main floor. It was truly a perfect venue for the vision of our wedding day, and we can't thank the Wimbish House staff (and our other vendors) enough for the perfect evening. One thing I will recommend, even though it looks so beautiful and photographs well, is not having candles in the aisle for the ceremony. We had a few clumsy guests knock them over, but thankfully Karin and crew came to the rescue swiftly and gracefully. We had no idea it had even happened until later on, and that's the kind of crew you want on your wedding day: one that makes mistakes unnoticeable. Thank you so much again for a wonderful wedding day!

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.
