    Why get married in Atlanta

    Seasons Made for Strolling

    Atlanta is blessed with moderate southern weather, which means it never stays too cold or too hot for long. Most days are gorgeously sunny and pleasant — perfect for enjoying a bike ride around Piedmont Park or a cocktail on a restaurant patio in Buckhead.

    Celebration and the City

    Atlanta has one of the most sophisticated downtowns in the Southeast, which means glamorous soirées are the city’s speciality. With a downtown packed full of glossy high-rises and swanky hotels, Atlanta is perfect for couples dreaming of skyline views while they say “I do.”

    Playground for Your Palate

    Atlanta’s reputation for delicious and innovative cooking extends well beyond classic southern cuisine, and local breweries offer some of the best pours in the country. If you craving well-crafted wedding fare with a healthy dose of creativity, then this Georgia gem will serve you right up.

    Take Art to the Street

    All it takes is a walk around town to explore Atlanta’s progressive art scene — no admission fee necessary. Instead of restricting their work to galleries and museums, Atlanta artists deliver their genius directly to the people through murals, street performances, and interactive installations.
