Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Sleekly contemporary and recently renovated, this gorgeous museum on the campus of the University of Georgia includes both indoor and outdoor spaces for your celebration. Plus, you can arrange to have the galleries open so that your guests can enjoy the collections.
  • With its charcoal terrazzo flooring, maple paneling, brushed steel accents, and illuminated milk glass, the M. Smith Griffith Grand Hall makes a stunning reception location. The picture-perfect grand staircase overlooks the meticulously maintained grounds.
  • The spacious Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden is brimming with possibilities. Modern cement tiles framed by grass, bamboo, and a waterfall fountain provide a soothing backdrop for a ceremony, cocktail hour, or dinner and dancing under the stars.
