As a Atlanta wedding photographer get to shoot at a lot of Historic Venues in the Atlanta Area. This week I had the honor of shooting at the Historic Pace House located in Vinings, Georgia. It is a wonderful historic venue with a hardworking and gracious professional staff. Katie and Leigh were just awesome! Leigh gave me a little tour of the property and gave me brief history of the property. It is a real gem of a venue!
You can learn more of the property at their website located at: http://vinings.org/our-properties/pace-house
. There you can learn about the history of the property. The painstaking restoration of the historic property. It is very insightful on how much the community has rallied around this historic resource.
I am going to share some quotes from their website. They can tell you the history much better than I can.
"If you're looking for the perfect place to hold your wedding, family
reunion or celebration, look no further than the Pace House, Vinings'
most historic and beautiful location. The Solomon and Penelopy Pace
House and Old Pavilion offer an oasis of old Southern small-town charm
right at the doorstep of Atlanta.
This historic house was built with the
remains of the 17-room antebellum home of Vinings founder Hardy Pace.
The house served as General Sherman's temporary headquarters where he
planned the siege of Atlanta. Hardy's son, Solomon Pace, returned home
after the Civil War to find the home in ruins. Sometime between 1865 and
1874, Solomon painstakingly rebuilt the home—albeit more modestly—from
doors, windows and remnants of several small cabins that survived the
fire of the main house.
Today, the Pace House consists of three
rooms: a parlor, a dining room and a bridal room. The adjacent Old
Pavilion, itself a Vinings landmark, offers ample event space bathed in
natural light in a historic setting. The facilities include a catering
kitchen complete with refrigerator, warming stove, and sink as well as
moveable tables for food preparation and assembly. Two male and two
female restrooms are provided on-site. A spacious open deck connects the
buildings. Lush trees on the lawn provide shade during the day and at
night choose the exterior lighting or the moonlight above.
As of May 2009, the Pace House has been added to the National Register of Historic Places."
I can't tell you how much I enjoy shooting at historic venues in and around Atlanta. They give your wedding that charming character that makes your wedding a day to remember.
