Once you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the next most logical step is to select the place to hold your celebration of commitment and love for one another: the wedding venue! It is important to carefully select your wedding venue for a number of reasons. A wedding venue is one of the most significant aspects of the entire wedding planning process. It is where you will share a meal as a married couple for the first and dance the night away. It will also act as the backdrop of all your wedding photos. Finding the ideal wedding venue is a rewarding experience for you and your fiance.
With such a wide variety of wedding venues available, you might think that the quest for finding the perfect wedding venue is an easy one. I assure you it’s not. When deciding on the best place to hold your wedding reception, there are a variety of factors you must consider, and if even a single one of these factors does not suit your wedding requirement you probably have to find another venue. Some of the factors you must consider when looking for a wedding venue include the availability of the venue, whether the venue can accommodate all your guests, your wedding budget, whether there is nearby accommodation for your guests, the accessibility of the venue, parking availability, in-house catering, provision of essentials such as chairs and tables, as well as the establishment’s regulations on hosting events.
Established in 2002, The Defoor Center in Atlanta is a premier wedding venue offering wedding services. The establishment’s galleries are perfect for weddings, corporate events, and Mitzvahs. This unique space is situated in Atlanta’s Midtown Westside just a few steps from GA 400, I-75 and I-85, Midtown, Atlantic, and Buckhead Station. The building was erected in 1860 and once acted as a hospital during the course of the Civil War. A revivalist gospel church acquired the building in the 1970s, creating a 5500 square foot Forum with a hexagon shape at Defoor Gallery. During the ’90s a team of artists created the Rhombus room, Gatsby Room, The Encore! Gallery, and the warehouse space which is presently the bar/cafe.
The Defoor Center features a wide selection of fine wines and quality spirits by the bottle or glass and also offers specialty sandwiches, fresh salads, soup, homemade desserts, and daily specials. The casual and inviting environment is complemented by a table seating and lounge area that features constantly evolving artwork by local artists.
The Defoor Center’s award-winning chef offers a flavorful and wonderfully fresh menu during the day for guests. For special events, the establishment offers a selection of hors d’oeuvres alongside menu items that the chef artfully and carefully prepares to order. The Defoor Center’s experience, attention to detail, and unique gallery event spaces make every event special.
