Picking the right venue is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding. The location needs to be a place that is not only a representation of you and your style, but also your marriage. If you are looking for a wedding venue that has a rich history while also offering a variety of ceremony and reception options, look into having your celebration at The Corry House!
The Corry House is a highly praised venue space located in Union Point, just outside of the Athens area. This historic space was built in 1869 by the Corry family, and it continues to be family owned. Their beautiful house is surrounded by pastures and a barn, making this event space very private, while seamlessly spacious! Let’s get into the details of what this amazing wedding venue has to offer.
The Main House
The main house is a large, white house with beautiful columns and a large front porch. It is the perfect space for your bridal party to get ready in, no matter how big or small! This is also an excellent backdrop for photos, whether it be inside the house, on its large porch or on the beautiful walkway leading up the front yard.
Depending on which wedding package you choose, the main house and the carriage house can be used overnight to accommodate approximately 18 of your guests. If you are looking to not travel too far the night of your wedding, this could be a great option for you!
Because the Corry House is surrounded by five hundred acres of Georgia pastures, the event space has a multitude of options for where to have your ceremony. They have a beautiful forest site (pictured above), as well as a bright and open meadow that are both perfect places to say your vows. If you would rather have an indoor ceremony, their barn can be used for this as well.
All About the Reception
Following your ceremony, The Corry House has two amazing reception areas to choose from. If an all outdoor wedding is your dream, then tents can be set up in their gorgeous, wide-open fields to allow you and your guests to dance the night away under the night sky.
If you would rather have your reception in a covered area, their air conditioned barn is a great option! This barn has astonishingly tall ceilings, allowing for lights, curtains or other decorations to be hung from its high beams.
Whether you need the event space for the whole weekend, for two days or only one day, The Corry House has a rental option for you! These rental rates are all inclusive, as detailed on their website. If you wish to have a wedding coordinator for your big day, The Corry House also has a package available for that as well!
The Corry House offers rentals to make your wedding planning that much easier! In each package, they include rentals of their tables and chairs, which includes 16 60-inch round tables, 12 6-ft tables, 10 8-ft tables, 2 4-ft tables and 150 chairs. Their rentals also include the use of their unlimited field parking, two on-site kitchens and trash disposal. The Corry House provides a two hour rehearsal time during the week prior to your event. To ensure a smooth event, they also provide two of their staff members to help and support your needs on your big day. Your rental also allows you to use any vendor of your choice, but for extra help, they have created a resource document with their recommended vendors!
I hope that this gave you a clear image of all of the amazing services that The Corry House has to offer at their venue! For more information on booking this space, visit https://www.thecorryhouse.com.
