Calling all southern brides! Are you looking for a gorgeous, romantic venue to host your wedding ceremony and reception? Look no further than The Swan House Gardens, conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia.
This plantation-inspired estate, dating back all the way to 1928, is a seriously beautiful location to tie the knot. So beautiful, in fact, that it earned a coveted spot on our list of the best wedding venues in the United States! Not to mention it's the perfect locale for nearly any style or size wedding. Their lawns can accommodate parties of 50 all the way up to 750, so feel free to keep your guest list cozy or invited every single person your family knows.
One thing to note, Swan House Gardens doesn't allow any indoor weddings since the mansion is a historic house museum, but the property's Boxwood Porch (a garden-inspired patio lined with, you guessed it, perfectly manicured boxwoods) and Swan House lawns (several sprawling green areas) are two amazing outdoor spaces that are available for day and evening receptions. Another option? Their Grand Overlook ballroom, conveniently located nearby.
Though you can still include a hint of historical charm during your wedding festivities — the mansion is available for a few hours each day, so arrange for your friends and family to have a tour in between your ceremony and reception. They even have costumed actors in historical garb that can reenact characters from the past.
