Whenever I think of country clubs I go back to old movies where the rich congregated and threw over the top parties to impress people that they didn’t like. In my mind, I never wanted to get married in a country club because of that stuffy stigma it portrayed. Well, I have come to learn that a country club is one of the most elegant and timeless places to wed. I am constantly reminded of this ever since the first time I visited Alpharetta Athletic Club. From the expansive clubhouse fit for events from the most intimate to the most extravagant to the grounds that give you a backdrop that you only find in the movies, this picturesque locale will quickly have you forgetting that you are at a country club. And these photos by Melinda Humphries Photography only bring out the best of this classic venue.
Alpharetta Athletic Club’s expansive 28,000 square-foot Tudor style Clubhouse offers a beautiful venue for weddings and events. The club has beautiful high vaulted ceilings and looks out over their gorgeous golf course. Their East Course clubhouse features rooms beautifully appointed for a wedding ceremony, reception or private event. Guests arrive through a grand foyer complete with a baby grand piano, large southern staircase, cathedral ceiling and impressive chandelier.
The colors ivory, champagne and gold reflect a timeless feel that can be used in any setting and for any bride. All the textures and romantic candlelight provide a beautiful setting for an evening wedding.
Bringing a timeless elegance, this table setting speaks to the both the modern and the classically traditional bride.
With the soft florals in the design, brides can imagine their flowers as a subtle yet classic pop to their wedding.
