    Love At First Sight

    I’m so overjoyed that I chose The Winbish House as my wedding venue!!! It’s absolutely beautiful inside and Karin and Karine are so welcoming and professional. I’m a Navy Veteran, they’re very military friendly. Very affordable and they explain every detail. Can’t for my big day!!!!

    Fantastic experience


    We just wanted to share our wonderful experience for our wedding at the Wimbish House in July. 10 out of 10 would recommend to others for several reasons. We had initially booked this venue in January of 2019 for a memorial day wedding, but COVID forced us to cancel and move. The venue owner Karin was kind, accommodating, available, and catered to our constantly evolving wedding due to the pandemic. We were able to get the wedding moved to July with a significantly reduced headcount, adjusted music and dinner style without issue.

    We’ve heard from other friends that didn’t have the same experience and were so grateful for Karin and our venue selection. Highly recommend her for the coordinator services rather than bring one in! The venue was beautiful, and honestly provided us the perfect setting that we always wanted. The ballroom setting downstairs, photo opps for a blended historic/urban vibe, and upstairs area was fantastic, and we’ve had friends reach out regularly about the intimate setting. We worked with Hannah at Zest for catering, which we also highly recommend, and Joel Rabe with Lethal Rhythms as DJ and were extremely pleased. Awesome venue!!

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.
