Atlanta Wedding Venues for LGBTQ+ Couples

The venue you choose for your wedding is one of the most important aspects of your day. I’ve put together this list of Atlanta wedding venues for LGBTQ+ couples. I’ve personally thoroughly vetted each of these Atlanta wedding venues to make sure they are accepting of the LGBTQ+ community, so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

LGBTQ+ Policies:
Wild Heaven has hosted many LGBTQ+ weddings and events over the years. In addition to weddings, they host a variety of events and fundraisers benefiting the LGBTQ+ community in collaboration with local organizations. They’re even home to Finca To Filter, a queer and female owned coffee shop.

Backyard

As the final option, I always suggest looking into doing a smaller wedding in your backyard or rent a fun VRBO. VRBO, unlike Airbnb, does allow events to be held on their properties. So instead of dealing with a venue, rent out a sick house where you and your favorite guests can turn your celebration into an entire weekend, without worrying about whether the staff will be supportive of your relationship.

There are many other Atlanta wedding venues that are inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community, and I’m happy to help you find them. Feel free to submit an inquiry, and we can make sure you find the perfect Atlanta wedding venue for you.

Are you an LGBTQ+ affirming wedding venue that would like to be on this list? Send me an email with a description of your LGBTQ+ policies for consideration.
