Opened in 1934 as a “theatrical training ground for stage performances,” the rock and floral garden was even home for awhile to actress Minnie Pearl. The 25-acre property was purchased in 2000 by it’s current owner, Jennifer Bigham, as an event space for weddings as well as being open to visitors.
Woman Getting Married Says:
There are so many gorgeous outdoor ceremony sites at this venue, including the Amphitheater, Arrowhead Pools, Hanging Gardens, and the ancient Wedding Tree to name a few. I also love that you can bring in your own vendors, including caterers. However, keep in mind this is mostly an outdoor wedding venue, which means you’ll need a tent for your reception. I do prefer this location for local brides vs. destination weddings where a lot of guests have to travel in from out of town, since they would most likely want to stay in Atlanta. Overall though the venue is such a pretty location that Atlanta brides looking for an outdoor garden venue should definitely put it on their list!
