Rhodes Hall is one of the last remaining historic mansions on Peachtree and it is truly gorgeous! The interior of the "castle" includes an elaborately carved mahogany winding staircase - perfect for the bride's grand entrance... I've seen it in action! I love that they allow you to bring in your own alcohol because that can greatly reduce the cost of your reception - check on this though because sometimes these rules change. I believe they also allow tents on the front lawn for larger groups. This is definitely one of my favorite venues in Atlanta. ♥ ~ Lei

The perfect venue for anybody wanting an intimate and classy setting
for a wedding in the heart of Atlanta! Chrystal & her team were very
helpful and accommodating, and the natural beauty of the "castle on
Peachtree" meant only minimal decorating was necessary. Very
flexible and affordable, especially compared to similar venues in
Atlanta. Don't forget to ask to climb the tower for a sunset picture
with the Midtown skyline in the background.

Laraine at Rhodes Hall was the best to work with. The site looked fantastic on the day of my wedding. She was so helpful to us prior to and on the day of our wedding. She was helpful in planning the floor space and coming up with a 'plan b' in case of inclement weather. If you have never seen the inside of Rhodes Hall, it is a must see!
