When we think about a classic southern wedding, we can’t help but envision a quaint colonial charmer with a shady porch and a wooden bench swing. The first time we viewed The Gilbert House in Roswell, Georgia, we knew the picture-perfect historic home would easily be a southern belle’s dream wedding venue. Jennifer Shields, Owner and Lead Event Stylist at The Gilbert House, loves planning and hosting intimate events at the historic venue. “The trend that I embrace is keeping it simple. At The Gilbert House we provide a lovely, intimate environment for people to throw meaningful celebrations and focus on what really matters to them. I love a good over the top affair, but lately I find myself gravitating toward smaller more personal events,” says Shields.
Hosting your birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, or other intimate gathering at The Gilbert House means full access to the home and grounds on the day of the event. You’ll have the added convenience of Shields’ in-house event planning company Posh Tot Events, which houses an array of party rentals and props ready to suit your every need. From children’s costumes to chairs and linens, this venue and planning company in one caterers to every hostess.
