A big city with a buzzing excitement and sweet southern charm, Atlanta has an abundance of greenery, historical textures, and activities. One of the principal centers of the American South, Atlanta was originally a military outpost, a center for early railway junction, quickly blossoming into this important commercial town where all the buzz resides. Atlanta is now a major economic and cultural center and plays a significant role in air traffic. A tad different from the other romantic southern cities, Atlanta is more of a vibrant and thriving American city with plenty of things or attractions from arts to sports and includes historic sites, museums, and gardens. The city is filled with a variety of tourist attractions, from Atlanta Botanical Garden to Martin Luther King Jr National Historic SitePiedmont Park to Atlanta History Center, to cover just a few! A ravishing city with lots of history, Atlanta is sure to steal any couple's hearts. Known as the ‘Hollywood of the South’, Atlanta has several amazing backdrops that ensure every couple portrait captured by the Atlanta wedding photographers is the one for the frames. If you’re getting married in the Atlanta area, let this magical city work its wonders and gift you the most amazing wedding backdrop ever!

If you and your partner are looking for a wedding venue that will sweep you and your guests off their feet, this is just it! A gorgeous wedding venue located in the charming community of Porterdale Mill Lofts, just a mere 30 minutes from Atlanta, Georgia, The Mill at Yellow River is tucked away just off Highway 120, minutes from Conyers and Covington, Georgia. Sitting pretty on the bank of Yellow River, the historic Mill at Yellow River offers a unique charm and personality to your wedding day that you will just adore! The location comes with some intriguing history as well. First opened in 1899, the Porterdale Mill became the world’s largest producer of twine well in the 1960s. In the early 1970s, the mill was closed which was later in 2006 transformed into the Porterdale Mill Lofts with residential, retail professional spaces. Showcasing materials and craftsmanship of another era, The Mill at Yellow River building has bravely survived seven decades of intense industrial use and 35 years of neglect, without giving away and now is restored to its former glory.

If you are planning for an outdoor ceremony, the venue offers a scenic and charming garden along with the gorgeous outdoor patio which can be perfect for the cocktail mixer hour after the ceremony! If you are keen more on an indoor wedding, The Mill has special interiors which include industrial-style piping and lighting fixtures. The industrial style can be perfectly balanced with some warmth lent by the string lights and the lighting pouring in through the large paned windows, giving the space a rustic contemporary feel! We love how the historic architecture and craftsmanship are composed of mature southern yellow pines, now a rare and protected type of wood, and the building stands tall and proud to speak for its durability itself!
