What better place for your clients to affirm their love for each other than at the historic Woodlands manor in Adairsville, GA, which Godfrey Barnsley built in the 1840s for his wife.

Today, the manor’s ruins, which are absolutely charming, lie trimmed in ivy as part of the 200-acre Barnsley Gardens estate, home to the Barnsley Museum and Barnsley Gardens Resort.

Weddings here can take place indoors, but it would be hard to pass up the beautiful outdoor scenery. As part of the Premier wedding package, couples will be wed onsite at the Woodlands manor ruins and gardens, offering the kind of vintage beauty that isn’t soon forgotten. For $225 per guest with a 100-guest minimum, the package includes wedding rehearsal and a reception featuring all the musts. Afterwards, the bride and groom will be treated to complimentary upgraded accommodations in an Arbor cottage.

And after the reception, let Barnsley Gardens’ resident Fairy Godmother make the occasion even more memorable with a selection of “Love Spells”—more than 10 romance-themed packages that can be left waiting in the couple’s room such as the Snow Me You Love Me, with white roses, tea lights, White Star Champagne, and white chocolate- covered strawberries ($150).

Accommodations at Barnsley Gardens Resort include 36 cottages, plus 90 guestrooms and suites. Nightly rates start at $575 for cottages or $259 for guestrooms.

Why we chose it: The historic and intimate setting, opportunities for personalization and a truly romantic ambiance.
