786 Mimosa Blvd. Roswell, GA 30075
This secluded estate was originally a wedding gift from Reverend Pratt to his bride when they married in 1842. In the century and a half since, the trees have formed magnificent canopies over the breathtaking gardens. The focus of this venue is on helping you create memories of your big day, and they enthusiastically welcome your dog as part of the event. Dog-lovers themselves, the owners have named the ballroom Ajax Hall after their Jack Russell Terrier.
While your dog must be leashed, The Gardens employs a fully licensed dog handler to care for your pet during the ceremony and reception, or if your dog needs to go home for a break, the handler can take him there for you. Pricing varies depending on the day and season and estimates are given on request.
