One of the loveliest things about living in Georgia is getting to enjoy the changing of the seasons. The crisp winter leads its way into the cheery spring weather which makes its the hot summer sun and we are relieved when the cool autumn breeze comes our way. One major benefit of this feat by mother nature is that you can plan any size event, wedding or party, outdoors with the knowledge that it won’t necessarily be sweltering outside. And with the venues below you can also have a backdrop straight out of a movie with virtually no effort at all.
