A Historical Site is an Option for Your Wedding Venue

Have you ever thought of adding a little historical charm to your wedding day? Venues, like the Douglasville Cultural Arts Center, are beautiful southern gems to consider.

The Cultural Arts Center is on the National Historical Preservation Society’s National Register and offers enchantment and elegance for weddings and receptions. To discuss the magnificence of this 100-year-old venue, I met with Emily Lightner, program assistant of the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County

“The Cultural Center was once a home,” says Emily. She explained that it was once the home of deceased Georgia State Senator W. T. Roberts in the early 1900s. Today, the Cultural Center is a select venue for weddings, bridal showers, and other special events.

The center’s grounds invite the serenity of nature including a colorful butterfly garden, plush green grass, beautiful towering trees, and even gorgeous hydrangeas in June. What splendor for a wedding! “For back up, in case it rains, a lot of our brides rent a tent or use the inside of the center,” says Emily.

The grounds of the center are not the only fine feature. Its interior is also a delight to the eye. The mahogany wood prevalent in the great foyer, curved staircase, and courting bench offer a romantic welcome to any couple. In addition, guests are sure to enjoy the smooth flow of walking room-to-room along with admiring the grand piano and unique artwork that hangs on the walls.

To discover the history and beauty of the Cultural Arts Center, Emily is a great source.
