Callanwolde is so romantic and is still offering special recession rates. Call the office for details on dates available. Khadeja is easy to easy to work with and they only do one wedding per day. Perfect location for ceremony and reception with free parking. The best part is that you can bring in your own vendors and alcohol. (no minimums)
The setting is just perfect for a wedding...a beautiful old gothic tudor mansion right in the city, but tucked far enough off the street to seem so far away. We had 150 guests, which was perfect for the space. The staff was vey professional & easy to work with & most of them have been there for many years. You can choose whatever caterer you want & are allowed to provide your own alcohol, which hrlps save some money. The only thing I would warn of is that if no one calls you back, (which I had issue with at many of the venues I looked at), you might have to just show up during business hours and go find someone in the offices upstairs. As far as price, it was as expensive as most other comparable venues...a little less than the History Center & Botanical Gardens, which were 2 of my other favorites. Sundays were significantly less pricey, and they offer discounts in off season times like winter. June was a little warm...wish we had chosen May, but all in all the day was amazingly perfect!!! :)
