I discovered Smith-Gilbert Gardens when I met Martha, who is having her wedding there next May. Formerly privately owned, the house and gardens also incorporate a variety of different kinds of artwork on the grounds, making for a truly unique venue. Some of the highlights include a huge rose garden, a peaceful koi pond, and an extensive collection of bonsai trees.
The entire property is filled with gorgeous treasures to discover and from a photographer’s point of view is a SPECTACULAR place to have your wedding. Because new flowers are constantly blooming and each season brings new colors, the gardens never look exactly the same two days in a row. How cool is that?
Smith-Gilbert is located in Kennesaw, GA and is also available for tours daily, and because it’s a non-profit organization, rental fees for weddings are tax-deductible! Bonus!
Update: Martha is married and you can check out the blog post from her wedding here. The wedding was such a hit that it was even featured on Style Me Pretty, one of the most well known wedding blogs. You can see that post here.
