#1 - The Cotton Warehouse
Located just outside Atlanta in Monroe, this venue is one that’s tough to beat. This 130 year old warehouse is a trip back in time. The 6,000 sq. foot building has exposed brick walls, beams, rafters, and a gorgeous garden. The venue is unique, but one guests won’t soon forget.

#2 - The Houston Mill House
Oak trees over 100 years old and beautiful gardens put The Houston Mill House on the list at #2. This venue has been hosting weddings since the 1920s and offers immaculate, tended gardens, an elegant wedding gazebo, and a great selection of food for smaller parties.
