I know wedding planning can be hard and choosing the perfect wedding venue is an important first step in creating your dream wedding day. Over the years we have had the pleasure of shooting a lot of weddings at some of the most amazing venues, so to help you choose the perfect wedding venue, here are some of our thoughts on Atlanta wedding venue Proctor Farm in Rome, Georgia.
If you are looking for a rustic, untraditional farm in Georgia, Proctor Farm in Rome would be a great place to start looking. Located about 1 1/2 hour drive from Atlanta, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Proctor Farm offers almost endless potential for creating your amazing wedding day. There is a ton of room for you and just about a limitless number of guests. One of the best parts about Proctor Farm is it’s actually lived on and family owned / operated, so it’s a lot more personal than other venues might be. This is always a plus when searching for a venue because you are not just another number, you’re truly valued and cared for just like family.
Proctor Farm offers separate getting ready locations that are located a decent distance away from each other, so you will have plenty of room and avoid seeing each other before the ceremony with ease. This also allows the perfect setup for a first look, allowing everyone to get into position in a variety of different locations.
When it comes to the ceremony, there are a few different options. Many people opt for an outdoor ceremony utilizing the timber framed wedding altar area complete with thirty-six wooden benches, and a large wedding bell to announce the couple. Of course being in Georgia and depending on the time of year, you never know if it will rain, so Proctor Farm has an indoor option as well.
The indoor chapel features 1800 square feet, with beautiful stained glass windows, and twenty wooden pews. The chapel itself was built with actual timber off the property. If you are not a fan of outdoor weddings, then this is a great option regardless of the weather.
One thing I really appreciate is how they truly personalize the experience. In your wedding venue search, you might have noticed some venues will hold multiple weddings a weekend or even on the same day! Proctor Farm, like us, truly believes in providing an exceptional experience and only accepts one wedding a week. You not only have Proctor Farm for the day, but they actually start your experience on Monday and it ends on Sunday. No stress or being rushed here.
Proctor Farm also does an amazing job supplying you with everything you need, taking a ton of stress and time off your hands. From the rehearsal to tables, chairs, linens, and everything else you might need, they have it. Another thing I love about Proctor Farm is how much detail they have put into their venue. Each part of the property is well thought out and decorated.
The reception is held at the High Lonesome Saloon that’s well detailed in a western theme complete with a stage for your band or DJ. Another notable mention is they do not include a florist, photographer, catering, band, or DJ. This allows you to choose the exact vendors that are a perfect fit for you. Some venues try to stuff couples in a box forcing you to choose only their “approved” vendors giving you limited options to choose from. Of course many will let you choose an outside vendor but at an extra cost.
Proctor Farm seems to take care of just about everything and offers a lot of options, so if you’re looking for a wedding venue with some rustic charm, check them out.
