Have you ever dreamed of having your Athens, Georgia wedding at one of the beautiful buildings that line Milledge Avenue? For a southern wedding that radiates as much historic charm as the Classic City itself, look no further than the Hardeman-Sams House. Nestled on almost an acre of grounds, this historic house has been standing strong on S. Milledge Ave. since 1910. Conveniently located one mile from downtown Athens, this venue provides easy access to all things Athens.

At the Hardeman-Sams house you have complete freedom to choose whichever vendors you desire, although recommendations are available. Weddings can be held indoors where French doors open up into a bright sunroom or outdoors amongst luscious, green gardens. The Hardeman-Sams House does require you to have a wedding planner separate from anyone already attending your wedding. However you decide to host your wedding, the house is exclusively yours during your rental period, which can last as late as midnight.

A full service bridal suite is included in your rental. Opt to stay there overnight or just for the day. A groom’s suite is also on-site with a 70’ flat screen TV, so your betrothed and his boys can still occupied. Additionally, the house is very accommodating to guests. Parking is off-site but within walking distance. The ground level and first level of the house is wheelchair accessible.
