I have to share with you the latest wedding I did. As you may know that I work for a cultural resource firm. I have a deep passion for history and architecture. On Friday I shoot a rehearsal dinner at Naylor Hall in Roswell.
Let me tell you this is one beautiful event venue. The first thing that you notice is the driveway and the stately columns. They have a wonderful foyer for greeting your guests. Seperating the foyer is the bar and then you enter in the dinning room or ball room. This area has hardwood floors and gorgeous windows.
The venue has a rich history and I am quoting their website.
"The original part of the home, a four room clapboard cottage with a central fireplace, was built in the 1840's by Barrington King for H.W. Proudfoot and his wife, Euphemia. Mr. King, son of Roswell's founder, employed Mr. Proudfoot as a bookkeeper in his newly constructed Roswell Mills, which would later become famous in its own right for its production of Roswell Grey cloth used in Confederate uniforms.
Reportedly, in anticipation of Sherman's march, huge supplies of Confederate uniforms were taken from the mill and secretly stored at Naylor Hall. In the summer of 1864, the Proudfoot's home was heavily damaged by Federal troops. After occupation, Proudfoot began to rebuild. He remained with the mill, and in his home, until his death in 1871.
In the late 1930's Colonel Harrison Broadwell purchased the property, naming it Naylor Hall in honor of his wife's family. He also added the columns, the handcrafted woodwork, and the portico encompassing the original structure."
What really makes a great venue is the staff. Their staff was top notch. Everyone was so gracious and just made you feel at home. If you are looking for a great historic wedding venue you must check out Naylor Hall. You can visit their website at http://www.naylorhall.com .
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.
