    Default Atlanta Area peeps-need suggestions for a barn/farm wedding site

    Two adorable friends are getting married in 2013 and would like to have the wedding at a lovely farm.

    Many places they have contacted are already booked for 2013.

    If anyone has suggestions of facilities that can host a wedding of 125-150 I know they would be grateful for the recommendation.

    Well, not really near Atlanta, but in SC (so probably like 2 hours from there) is this beautiful farm:
    http://lindseyplantation.com/

    I grew up riding there when it was a hunter/jumper/dressage barn. Estela Lindsey, the owner, decided to get out of training full-time and converted the place into a wedding facility. I believe they still have some horses there, but it's mainly used for events now. It is in a gorgeous location, with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains all around. Not sure on capacity though.

    We have had quite a few weddings at our place including mine and DH's. I think you still have my phone number so she can call me if she would like.
