    Fernbank Museum of Natural History


Fernbank was a great location for a wedding reception! The space was large enough to accommodate all of our guests without feeling crowded. We got so many compliments on the uniqueness of the space! All of the staff were extremely helpful and wonderful to work with, especially our main contact Sarah Parris. She was willing to work with us on any details or ideas we had and ultimately helped to make the night better than all of dreams!

Our daughter had to get married on May 6th due to grad school schedule and who knew this was the most popular date in Atlanta to get married! We were shocked when our first venue choices were already booked 13 months out from our date. When Fernbank was available we quickly snatched it. We now realize that it should have been our first choice all along. The space they give you is amazing! Our cocktail hour was on the steps outside the museum and beautiful. The guests then went down the spiral staircase to the reception. Everyone stopped to take photos because it was stunning. We got comments like "best wedding I have ever been to," "how did you find such a cool venue?" etc. Sarah was great to work with and always smiling and ready to help us when needed. We embraced the museum and organic theme of the museum with our centerpieces, but you could also create a very formal space. It was more than we had hoped for!

Sarah Parris is amazing! When we met her at Fernbank a year before the date we set, we knew this was the place to go. She was incredibly responsive, always friendly and calming (the weeks leading up can be crazy stressful), and ready to give tips for ceremony/reception logistics. I cannot imagine having the wedding anywhere else. From sending us layouts, telling us what decorations were approved and allowing us to do multiple walkthroughs, Sarah was on it!

We worked with Jennifer, who isn't even their wedding contact, and she was absolutely FANTASTIC! She gave wonderful advice and was extremely accommodating. The Fernbank made our dream wedding happen. We've gotten nothing but compliments on the wedding, including that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to!
