Urban wedding reception venue in Atlanta with tables, chairs and lights.

We love our ballrooms. Yes, we do. But every once in a while, when we’re in a city with as much personality as Atlanta, we find ourselves and seeking out sites that have as much character, culture and history as the city itself. From industrial studios to art galleries and parks, these buildings are backdrops suited for weddings of any size and style.

Summerour Studio

Tuscan style exterior, refurbished and restored industrial interior and a view of the Atlanta skyline – these are just a few of the reasons we’re in love with Summerour Studio. The building has served several purposes since its construction in the 1920s, but we like it best as a reception venue. The broad main room with its original wood flooring and exposed beams is complemented by farm tables, high ceilings, and a row of floor-to-ceiling windows that runs the length of the space.

Ambient Plus Studio

Another industrial structure, Ambient Plus Studio advertises itself as an artful combination of laid-back West Coast culture and urban industrial. The hundred-year-old photography studio and event space is another collection of beautiful wood flooring and open windows, with clean lines fit for weddings of all themes.

Atlanta Greystone at Piedmont Park

Named in honor of its original granite walls and placed in the heart of Piedmont Park, the building that what was once a bathhouse is now a classic venue. From the scenic surroundings to the view from the main terrace, the Greystone takes its role as Atlanta’s only real lakefront wedding site seriously.

Mason Murer Fine Art

In between city neighborhoods Buckhead and Midtown, Mason Murer Fine Art is a contemporary event space fit for the urban wedding of your imaginings. In between the works of regional, national, and international artists is room for 350 seated guests, a dance floor, and your personal sense of aesthetic appeal.
