Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 1885 brick treasure gives new meaning to a "courthouse wedding". Sitting on Lawrenceville's charming town square, it features manicured grounds, wonderful vintage details, and a romantic turret (great for the bouquet toss!).
  • The outdoor gazebo is a perfect ceremony site, framed by trees that provide shade from the Georgia sun. Inside, you'll find vintage chandeliers hung from a 24-foot ceiling, Palladian windows, louvered shutters, intricate faux fireplaces, crown molding, and wainscoting.
  • It's conveniently close to GA-Highway 316 and I-85, and provides plenty of free parking. Rental fees are refreshingly affordable, and they even offer reasonably priced packages for intimate weddings.
