Callanwolde Fine Arts Center

In the Druid Hills neighborhood, Callanwolde Fine Arts Center is a historic estate, a nonprofit arts organization, and a unique Atlanta wedding venue – all in one!

Located on twelve acres, Callanwolde is a stunning 27,000-square-foot mansion nestled among towering trees and beautiful gardens. The Callanwolde team describes their venue as “old world craftsmanship at its best – walnut floors and paneling, 12-foot ceilings, and a grand staircase, framed by a solid limestone archway that spills out into the great hall.”

Built between 1917 and 1921, Callanwolde was home to the family of Charles Howard Candler until 1959. Known as Howard, he was the oldest son of the pharmacist Asa Griggs Candler, who purchased the rights to the Coca-Cola formula in 1891. Cheers to a beautiful wedding at this unique destination!
