    Amazing venue in the heart of Atlanta

    This venue was exactly what we hoped for! We had both the ceremony and reception within the space and guests enjoyed the patio space for a cocktail hour while the venue transformed for the reception. The location was perfect and easy to get to. The historic feel to the Trolley Barn is beautifully maintained and made for incredible photos. I highly recommend this venue!!

    Perfect Fall Wedding

    We got married here on 11/23/19 and even though it rained changed out outdoor ceremony to indoor it still worked perfectly. Lisa was always easy to get in touch with and was very accommodating with our wedding coordinator.

    Exceptional Venue and Expereince

    We had a small, intimate ceremony at the Trolley Barn and Lisa and her team were outstanding. Not only is it a beautiful venue, with indoor and outdoor space, it felt very intimate and private. We also enjoyed that there was parking on premises for our family and that we could do everything right there. It was fabulous for pictures as well. The gardens are stunning, and the green barn makes for a lovely backdrop. And if you are a dog lover like us, your furry friend can be a part of your day. If you are thinking about hosting your wedding or event at Trolley Barn- DO IT- you will be so happy!

    Beautiful Venue!!

    My husband and I got married in October at The Trolley Barn. We chose the Trolley Barn because it fit our personalities so well and was a reasonable price for a venue in the middle of Atlanta. Our coordinator, Lisa, is also part of the Trolley Barn staff and she made the planning and the day of go perfectly. We lucked out and had beautiful weather which made the patio area very enjoyable for us and our guests that day. We were really pleased with our wedding and how everything came out!

    Awesome wedding venue!

    We had a great time at the trolley barn! Lisa, the director, was very responsive about our event date and accommodations. She was very flexible as well. They allow for BYOB, so we had to drop off our alcohol along with other things the day prior and she was totally fine with that. The back area for the ceremony and cocktail hour was also super pretty!

    I was so thrilled I went with The Trolley Barn for my wedding. I loved that the venue was decorated for Christmas, including a Christmas tree and wreaths on all of the windows. The staff was very helpful during the entire process and everyone came up to me during the wedding and afterwards telling me that the venue was absolutely beautiful. If you're looking for a unique venue in the city of Atlanta, this is your venue!

    I was nervous picking the Trolley Barn because of some negative feedback on the internet, but we had absolutely no issues with the space. We followed the rules and, in turn, got a wonderful historic venue in our neighborhood with flexibility in vendors that saved us a ton of money. Linda was a pleasure to work with, and we had zero hassles along the way. They were there for our rehearsal, no problem, and we were able to drop stuff off the night before to make for a more relaxed day. All of our vendors had worked there before and only had positive things to say. Most importantly, everyone loved the Trolley Barn. It is such a cool venue 2 blocks from public transportation.

    We loved having our wedding at the Trolley Barn! It's a beautiful venue! Linda was great to work with. We were able to have our rehearsal the day before and someone was there early to let us in. However, we asked if we could have an extra hour for the rehearsal to practice setting up the music, and they said it would be $100 (they are strict with the 1 hour rehearsal!). But other than that - it was a perfect place to get married and I wouldn't have done it anywhere else!
    Also - I wasn't sure about this from the website, but you can seat people on the mezzanine during the reception.
    I would definitely recommend getting married at the Trolley Barn!

    We loved having our wedding at The Trolley Barn! We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outside in the garden area, and then our reception inside. I loved having the whole property to ourselves. They were very accommodating when we needed to add an extra hour last minute as well. We also accidentally left some of our leftover cake and they kept it for us. For those worried about sound issues- we had a live 6 piece band without any issues at all!

    The venue is beautiful. We also chose it based on its location, BYOB, and the ability to choose our caterer. We thought the price tag was a little high once we found out all of the additional costs. They also have a lot of rules because it is a historic venue and in a neighborhood. Overall we were very happy there, it was just a little more expensive than we had originally thought.

    This is an excellent space for a wedding ceremony and reception. The outdoor space is very quaint and exactly what we were looking for. There is an outdoor bar as well, which is super convenient. Linda is wonderful to work with as well. This is a prominent venue that most vendors are familiar with.

    The Trolley Barn was the perfect venue for our April wedding! We were looking for a place that provided the flexibility for us to bring in vendors of our choosing. It has a lovely rustic feel, with a beautiful backyard garden and patio, where we had our ceremony. There is also an awesome shed outside which we used as an outdoor bar. The planted flowers and colorful shrubs were in bloom just in time. Linda (one of the managers) was very helpful and polite in answering our questions. Unfortunately the venue is pretty pricey for providing nothing but the space (tables and chairs are available at an extra cost- still cheaper than a rental company) and a 1 hr rehearsal time. The nice thing is that they only book one event per day, and you can split up your allotted time and use some of it for prep in the morning. We had our event on a Saturday, and they were open that morning anyway and allowed us to bring some of our stuff by and set up a few quick things, free of charge. There are a ton of rules and regulations when you read the contract, but in the end nothing really stifled us. The Trolley Barn is a historic site so they must keep it in nice shape, which was great for our wedding. In addition to cleaning the inside of the facility the morning of our event, they even got out in the backyard with a hose and washed away the pollen for us. The venue felt very intimate, perfectly sized for a group of 120. The surrounding neighborhood (Inman Park) is also beautiful, with large victorian homes. I would definitely recommend the trolley barn to anyone looking to host a laid back, but intimate event.

    The Trolley Barn is a unique and rustic venue in Atlanta, GA that makes the perfect setting for any wedding. My husband and I had talked for a long time about getting married there, so we didn't even consider anything else when we decided to finally tie the knot. The staff are great to work with, and while they do have some guidelines for the venue they ask you to adhere to, it was no problem for us and we had a lovely ceremony and reception. The backyard patio was gorgeous during the golden hours of the evening, and interior of the barn was perfect for our reception (140 guests) with everyone fitting comfortably. If you're getting married in Atlanta, you definitely should check out the Trolley Barn!

    This is a historical venue, so certain options with decor and logistics are limited, but it is SO worth it. The place is stunning, both inside and out; and having the outdoors ceremony 10 feet from the inside reception makes thing so easy on both wedding party and guests. The staff do an amazing job keeping up the ceremony patio. Our wedding was the week before spring and even though not everything had naturally bloomed yet, the had potted plants and lush perennials out to make it feel much warmer than it was. They allow you to bring your own caters and alcohol and provide affordable chair/table rentals. They are easy to work with as long as you respect their rules. It was such a gorgeous venue and everything we hoped for and more.

    The Trolley Barn is really a beautiful place to have your wedding. I do recommend it if you are looking for a setting with indoor and outdoor venue with a rustic feel. Our ceremony was outdoors in their beautiful garden, and the reception was in the historic building. They have an outdoor bar, which was a great transition spot for the guests to drink their cocktails while waiting to get inside. The space itself is beautiful, and represents well in your pictures. There are tons of great places onsite and nearby for pictures. They have a real kitchen, which is great for your caterer. I don't think I would get married anywhere else in Atlanta.

    Working with them:
    Linda, was very easy to work with. She answered all of my emails quickly, and was very accommodating. They have a lot of restrictions but you can easily work around them. For example, you can not hang or fasten anything to the beams, no fireworks, nothing heavy may be set up on the grass, and they have strict set up and breakdown hours. Their bathrooms could use an update - and is not a picturesque spot to get dressed in your gown.

    All that said - we loved it.

    Beautiful venue, very flexible with catering and alcohol which is excellent for a unique and reasonably priced wedding. The rules about sound and decoration, as well as the length of time you get the facility, can be a little challenging but aren't impossible. Very friendly and supportive staff which made everything that much more pleasant. I think this is a good venue for those who aren't overly picky about details and just want a pretty, indoor/outdoor venue (love that fact---part of why we chose it) with character.

    The Trolley Barn was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. It is unique and historic, and really fit our character as a couple. It is located in the heart of beautiful and quaint Inman Park, and is convenient from the airport, sightseeing, and many hotels. They are not flexible and you really have to work within their strict time frame the day of the event - however, this is because they are run by volunteers. Linda was very responsive, friendly, and was as accommodating as possible. They have noise restrictions (the Trolley Barn is in a neighborhood) and I worried about being too loud and losing our deposit, but it was easy enough for our DJ to keep the music at a fun but reasonable level and it wasn't an issue at all. I also worried about the reviews below regarding the unprofessional employee, but he's long gone and everyone was nothing but professional. I think the rental fee is a bit ridiculous considering that all you get is the building for 8 hours (tables and chairs are charged separately), however, everything in the wedding industry is insanely expensive and this was just one more thing. Also, you can choose your own vendors and bring your own alcohol, and this helped our budget out tremendously!

    As long as you are prepared to follow the Trolley Barn's rules and time frame, it really is a perfect wedding venue. Our wedding day was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing!

    The trolley barn was a great location for our wedding. They don't have a liquor license, so we were able to provide an open bar for a reasonable price. I liked the fact that I had to put together the pieces of the wedding because they don't have anyone "in house" that does event coordination, but that might make other people nervous. The building itself is beautiful and well maintained. The outdoor area is very nice, but if you have children as guests, they aren't allowed to play on the grass. The venue is located in a primarily residential neighborhood and because of this they have a very strict noise policy - they will fine you if you play music loud enough to get the party going :). We knew this going in and just budgeted for the fine from the get-go.

    The trolley barn has its pros and cons. They have a sound limit, it comes with someone to gauge the sound on the day of. They have a lot of rules and restrictions. We were told the day before my wedding that we couldn’t use sparklers, I had to show them in my contract where it said it was allowed, then they allowed us to use them. The venue is pretty much a blank canvas to do what you want, but it is more expensive to decorate a blank canvas, but you can rent the furniture from them. All in all it turned out great having our reception here after we got married at Inman Park UMC, but it was expensive and you only get thto venue for 8 hours including when you start decorating.

    Thank you, Bethany! Indeed, we changed our rules for a short 2 week window to allow sparklers which is when you signed your contract. We were happy to honor the commitment! We wish you all the best, congratulations!
