The Most Elegant Wedding Venue Athens GA has to offer
Originally designed by Athens architect William Winstead Thomas in the then-popular Victorian Italianate Villa style, the house was extensively remodeled in the 1930’s by Nashville architect, and son-in-law of Edgar and Gipsy Tichenor, Francis Boddie Warfield. Remodeled in the Neoclassical style in favor with prominent southerners at the time, the interior was reconfigured but much of the original woodwork, doors and inlaid marbleized mantels are original; making this the best Wedding Venue Athens GA has to offer.

Wedding Venue Athens GA Reviews
“Absolutely loved the house!Fit well with my classically elegant, vintage theme. No need for many decorations, it shows itself.” By Kristen
“For the bride dreaming of a place that captures the charm that the Old South had to offer, the McDaniel-Tichenor House is the perfect venue. My daughter and her groom chose the area behind the home, “Between the Hedges.” Their wedding was held there recently on an Augustevening at 6:00, and the massive trees on the western part of the property provided a pleasant, shaded site for the ceremony. The home is absolutely beautiful, both inside and out. It offers numerous, magnificent backdrops that photographers crave. We had right at 250 guests and the home allowed a very nice flow as people went through the dinner buffet line. The staff was so kind, and each of the ladies offered smiles along the way to help me de-stress! During the planning stages, Connie offered reminders for the tiniest of details to prevent last-minute frustration. This was extremely helpful since we live about an hour and a half from Monroe. Also, I needed to find a local caterer, wedding rental company, and a hotel. I used Connie’s referrals, and was pleased with all three. I highly recommend that you consider The McDaniel-Tichenor House for its elegance, tranquility, and charm.” By Leigh
“Connie with the McDaniel-Tichenor house was a huge help in the success of our wedding day. This venue was just different enough and not common like most other brides. It is an old Governor’s Mansion, so it has an old-time feel on the inside with a lot of historic pictures andfurniture. The outside lawn is absolutely beautiful and they had fresh pine straw brought in, fresh ferns, and had the grass tended to 2 days before our wedding to make it perfect. They allowed us to come in the day before the wedding to drop off all of our decorations and actually set up most everything. We were also able to have our rental company drop off the tables and chairs the day before. Connie was wonderful about letting us come out as many times as we needed to try out different decoration ideas and answer any questions that we had. This venue also gives you free range of having whatever vendors and catering you want. They do give you ideas of vendors they use often, but they are not mandatory vendors. I felt like this was a huge weight off of my shoulders to be able to price, and then pick and choose what I really wanted for my wedding day. I would whole-heartedly recommend this venue to every other soon-to-be bride I meet. It was definitely the perfect venue for the perfect day!” By Melissa K
