The Grand in Kennesaw is large Victorian-style wedding venue with a very intimate feel. I love shooting weddings in the lush gardens and surrounding structures. There are so many little spots to capture all the memories of your special day. Additionally, the outside ceremony spots with seating are gorgeous. I love the barn and have successfully photographed weddings from outside looking in and inside the barn also.
Conveniently located on Main Street, close to downtown Kennesaw, the Grande in Kennesaw offers lots of parking, easy access and some of the friendliest, efficient event staff around. Minutes from I-75, Kennesaw State University with lots of hotels like my favorite Embassy Suites Kennesaw which has a Ruth's Chris Steak House within the hotel.
The Grande in Kennesaw offers unprecedented opportunities for your first look! The are so many secret little places to get that first glimpse. I love planning first looks with my couples to make that special moment extra special.
In my experience it's hard to beat the dishes that they serve up! The food from main to dessert, is absolutely delicious. The staff are on the ball where dinner, cake cutting, toasts etc are concerned. They offer great packages for food options and are super accommodating when guests bring in cakes etc.
On your wedding day timing is everything and having a manageable timeline is key to everything going off without a hitch. I work closely with the Grande's staff to keep my couples weddings on schedule. Stress levels are usually non-existent with close communication between myself, (the photographer), The Grande's entertainment staff and your other vendors.
Large or small, destination or close to home wedding, the Grande in Kennesaw has a lot to offer. Let me know if you have any questions.
