Venue on the water??

Roswel River Landing was my first choice but they are booked and have a waiting list. Does anybody know of a venue that overlooks water (could even be a pool) and is budget friendly?? BACKSTORY- Current venue is undergoing construction and was supposed to be completed before the wedding but now it's not. Guest count is 75 and the budget is $5k for venue, food/bar and cake. TIA!

    Maybe look into somewhere on Lake Lanier? I think they do weddings but might be pricey. If not, I'd just check into some other lakes around or hope some other ATL knotties know of a place with a private pond or pool.

    Not sure what part of atlanta your looking at , but there is Pristine Chapel in Jonesboro. They have an outdoor site on the lake. There is also a couple venues on water I know of in Macon but I don't know if you are looking at that area.

    Stone Mountain Park. A friend of mine got married at a pavillion there. It was gorgeous. I think you go through the Evergreen Marriott for rental and catering. Don't know prices.

    755 West also has a lake on which they do weddings.

    Lake Lanier has a couple of places including Lake Lanier Islands Resort.

    How far are you willing to travel?

    If your budget is $5,000 for wedding, food/bar, and might consider looking at some State Parks to see what type of group shelters or special events locations they have (not the hotels, etc. as that will be over $5,000.)  Lake Allatoona has a nice "group shelter" in a cove.  The interior may have concrete floors, but it has a beautiful stone fireplace, A/C, and an area just below the building that looks out over the Lake (and looks towards the West for beautiful sunset pictures.)

    @ Hydrophile... Where is the "group shelter" located on Lake Allatoona? I am in the same dilemma as princessannie12. I am very familiar with Lake Allatoona but can't picture where this is. Any help would be great:)

    I'm not sure if this would be too far away, but Pristine Chapel in Jonesboro. They have all-inclusive packages AND an inside Plan B for weather.

    Im having my rehearsal dinner at Lake Lanier and wedding at Windermere Golf Club. I know Lake Lanier has several different options. The Golf Club has a ceremony site by the water and a beautiful willow tree!

    Canoe-the restaurant on Paces Ferry is right on the Chatahoochee river. They have a very nice outdoor area for ceremony and a tent for reception. The cake is included in the price, but alcohol and food is not. Their food is a bit pricy because it is a restaurant, but it is delicious!
