Countryside Wedding Venues in Atlanta

Atlanta is an industrious city. It is filled with buildings and businesses, home to the busiest airport in the world and happens to have just a little bit less green space (read: parks) that the national average. But that doesn’t mean that your southern ceremony can’t be surrounded by trees, or on the banks of a river or in the midst of rolling hills. In fact, just to prove our point we’ve tracked down a few of the prettiest just-out-of-town venues around for your Atlanta wedding.

The River Club

Hidden in the Georgia pines, The River Club is country club classy meets rustic outdoor charm. From timber-framed accents to the outdoor fire pit, this venue has options – and ambiance to match. Brides have a choice between indoor and outdoor settings for both ceremony and reception, but we think the lawn has the best views.

Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club

While we must admit that we find the idea of a resort and sporting club fascinating all on its own, this venue has reception-friendly clout to match. From the Sports Lawn to Legacy Lookout, Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club has stone patios, vaulted ceilings and countryside views to burn. The timber-accented Polo Pavilion is ideal for outdoor events with overhead protection.

Diastole Farms

With 1200 acres of private estate and buildings representing architectural styles of all kinds, Diastole Farms is lush, green, and reception-ready. A train depot built in 1900, a European manor and several barns and cottages cover the property, although we think the outdoor venues are best. The lakeside garden screams cocktail hour with its bocce ball and horseshoe game accompaniments.

P.S. Don’t forget to use the best planning tools around – our wedding websites are perfect for communicating with your guests and sharing the details of your wedding day and registry.
