Have you found your Atlanta wedding venue yet? Okay. Well, then. Grab your sweet tea and pull up a chair. We’re about to show you the one if you’re looking for a place with classic but rustic character. A place where you can bring your mason jars and have crystal centerpieces. It’s a gorgeous wedding venue called Spring Lake just west of Atlanta in Rockmart, Georgia. This place was built to be your wedding venue. Literally. Let me show you.
Oh, p.s. If you want this place, you’ll need to be planning for your 2014 wedding, because they are completely booked for 2013. Yep. You heard that right!
Gorgeous, right? We know.
This is an overall view from the front (and side). It’s an open-air building with some rooms built into the back. It has a kitchen, restroom and 2 dressing rooms (with their own restroom).
It’s covered with gorgeous details. And I there wasn’t anything nearby to show you how massive these lights are, but they’re huge! Awesome.
If you’re looking something that’s a bit rustic, a bit elegant, this place has the perfect mix.
See what I told you? And then, there are adorable little details everywhere. And the land that Spring Lake sits on is actually used for fishing and hunting, so you guy is going to love the authenticity of it.
Everyone needs some awesome lighting.
And if cute lighting isn’t enough for you…..how awesome is this awesome old truck! He’s like the venue mascot! And I bet he talks like Tater.
Okay. Just a few more inside details before we move outside. There is so much happening at this place. Like, how about this adorable enameled “drink holder?”
Or this little rustic bench?
And all these other adorable details? Can’t you just see an amazing ring photo on the limb (top row)?
Or this really cool drink holder? Or favor holder? It’s at the stairs, so you could use it for almost anything you want you guests to pick up on their way in or out. Perfection.
I love this view from the porch area out to the lake. It’s so green, peaceful, and refreshing there.
There is even a really cool swing just near the entrance.
Okay. Let’s head outside and have a look around.
This view is looking at the driveway coming into the property.
Aren’t those chandeliers in there just amazing?! Okay. Rant over. 😉
Spring Lake is a newer venue, and they’ve been through about a year of weddings. They do get a breeze blowing through the building (because it’s in a valley) and it was blowing some of the centerpieces over, so they are adding on some barn doors (they were even working while we were there that day). We think it just adds a bit more rustic charm.
Oh no! Where do we go now that we’re outside? Oh! Thank goodness there is a sign to guide me. Lots of signs!
Can we just look at this one again? I just love it. I want to get a blanket and my picnic basket and go sit under those trees in the background. And watch the water. Yep.
Or I could be a bit more sophisticated and sit in a chair.
These would make awesome bride and groom photos. Or would be a great place to put your “bride” and “groom” signs.
So where do you want to actually do the marrying? You’ve got so many options! There is the barn area, there is the large open flat-ish space in front of those chairs I was talking about earlier…or there is the arbor area. I think this is the default area where they set up the pews if you don’t have a different preference. The pews would make an aisle to the center of the arbor, pointing straight out to the water. In between two willow trees. Can it get any more dreamy than that?!
Yes! If you put lanterns in the willow trees!
This adorable building is beside the willow trees. It’s the bar area. Which I think is included? Yes. I think it is.
Yes. Can I have these screen doors to take home?
And the swing, too?
This is the cute little bar area. This is sooo where I would be hanging out at the end of the night. Get my drink and go out on the little dock and hang my feet off the edge. Yep.
Or I might go and sit in these chairs. You might want to watch the boys. They’ll be dragging their fishing gear out of their trucks, if you don’t watch them!
So after you hang your feet off the dock and sit in all the chairs, grab your blanket and marshmallow sticks because there’s an outdoor fireplace. Yes! I know! And they’ve already put a candleabra on the mantle for your candles. I know. This place is a dream.
On your way back up to the barn to get some more marshmallows? You’ll see this:
And these cute little things lighting your way.
Oh! And one last look inside before we go. This is the guy’s getting ready room. Notice he has remotes to the sound system?
And she gets a couch and lots of chairs. Plus a bathroom.
And the rooms have their own air conditioner. It’s a perfect oasis on a really hot day.
So there it is! Spring Lake! We hope you’ll give them a call and stop in to check it out! Tell them we sent you! And then book us for your wedding there so we can come back and enjoy this gorgeous venue.
