Venue 31

Published on May 6, 2018 . Blog, Charlotte Taylor, Featured, Vendor Focus, What's New

Every couple has a unique love story, and it takes talented people to help tell that story. Enter Venue 31, a fresh, new event space located on 40 acres of rolling hills, green pastures, and a private lake just 15 minutes from Athens.

Imagine driving through the entrance gates to follow a winding road past a private lake to a beautiful venue and lake-front ceremony site. Continuing up the hill you’ll see the bridal party’s private residence, a custom built 3500-square-foot home with a large kitchen and living area for the wedding party to enjoy the day of the event. The home, designed speci cally to accommodate wedding parties, features three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

On the east side of the home you’ll find a private two room bridal party suite with two dressing areas, a private bathroom, a dedicated salon area for hair and makeup, and large closets all with direct access to the pool area.

On the west side of the home is the groom’s quarters, complete with large screen TV, sitting area, large private bath, and walk in closet. Outside you’ll nd a sparkling pool and patio area furnished for your enjoyment the day of your event. And for those who dream of an outdoor wedding, the lakefront ceremony site sits just down the hill from The Residence.

The Venue is an easy walk from the lakefront ceremony site and the perfect compliment to the property. The beautiful Venue is over 4000-square-feet of climate controlled space that will seat up to 250 guests. It features a large veranda, a professionally furnished catering kitchen, and site-built restrooms. The 1500-square-foot veranda, on the north side of the Venue, has a spectacular view of horses grazing on the lush green pastures.

Think about your day and how you would like it to play out. Imagine arriving at the residence at 9:00 a.m., drink a cup of coffee with a light breakfast on the patio while listening to the sounds of nature. Then take a dip in the pool, enjoy a lunch you brought in or have the guys BBQ on the grill.

The bride’s day is transformed by having access to the bridal party suite where her personal hair and makeup artist can attend to the bridesmaids in a relaxing environment without the stress of travel. “Enjoy the day with your closest friends,” Rebecca says. “And when it’s go time, you simply open the front door and walk down the winding pathway to exchange your vows at the waterfront, then to the Venue to nish the night with a reception that you’ve designed.”

For couples interested in Venue 31, they recommend scheduling a tour as soon as possible. “There’s really no better way to determine if Venue 31 is a good t for your event than touring the property and talking to

our team. We have an experienced onsite wedding coordinator that can assist you through the process. We offer our brides access to our curated list of preferred vendors and, as problem solvers, are here to help you work through the details to offer solutions.”

Owners Rebecca and Brian Robinson and Cindy and Ray Batten have a vision to create a place where couples can bring their family and friends to enjoy the peaceful outdoors for the entire day. They hope to take some of the stress out of the equation and replace it with relaxation, convenience, and enjoyment by taking advantage of the

numerous amenities that Venue 31 has to offer.

It’s your romance, your love story, and your special day. Venue 31 makes it personal.
