Enchanting Atlanta Venues for Garden Weddings

While Atlanta might be known for its incredible city vibe, there are some truly beautiful spots throughout the area for garden inspired wedding days. For couples that want to celebrate in nature or welcome their guests to a special and romantic day, I’m sharing my favorite Atlanta venues for garden weddings. One of the best parts of garden weddings is that every single one is unique because you never know what will be in bloom with each season. These venues become something truly beautiful and yet I love them all. I hope you will, too! 

UGA Founders Garden Weddings

Weddings at UGA Founders Garden are SO beautiful! It’s the perfect combination of the charm of historic architecture with the tranquility of nature. Nestled within the heart of the University of Georgia’s campus, the garden provides a romantic backdrop for exchanging vows and celebrating love. Lush greenery and vibrant blooms are everywhere you look.

Little Gardens Weddings

Weddings at Little Gardens in Atlanta, GA are perfect for couples who want an intimate and relaxed celebration. Tucked away in a corner of the city, Little Gardens offers a wonderful escape from the bustling urban landscape. The venue’s lush gardens, filled with blooming flowers and winding pathways, create a unique backdrop for elopements and wedding days. I love that there’s gorgeous outdoor options and a super cozy cottage that’s available, too! Learn more about Little Gardens here.
