The Howard House, a Queen Anne Victorian mansion with sweeping grounds right in the heart of Atlanta, is the perfect place to have a charming Southern wedding. It's classic look and outdoor spaces provide a beautiful and flexible environment. There are various settings around the Howard House for both ceremony and reception. Perform the ceremony in the front yard, with the bride and groom sharing their vows under the front portico, with the reception to follow under twinkling lights in the pecan grove behind the house, or host the whole experience in the grove. Set up tables on the wrap-around porch for dinner service, or incorporate the interior of the House into the event. It is up to you to choose how to frame your day!
The Howard House is a unique venue because we focus on quality over quantity. We like to leave plenty of space for wedding guests to truly experience the location and have the time to enjoy this important day. Weddings can often be events that rush by too quickly, even after so much time and effort has gone into planning them. At the Howard House, we offer uncommonly gracious time windows for day or weekend-long events, to really give families the chance to relax and enjoy the experience. You can even use this venue as accommodation and have approximately up to 13 people stay at the house! Many choose to house the wedding party or out-of-town friends and family, even hosting the rehearsal dinner, post-celebration brunch, and other events all at the estate.
The long driveway provides an easy setup for valets. There is plenty of room to set up caterers and even space to bring in food trucks. The grove is already outfitted with old-fashioned string lights and is fully wired with power for a band or DJ. There is also a small stage. A bathroom is available near the grove for guests as well. Please reach out with any other questions to see how we could outfit your wedding!
