At one time there was even a US Mint in Dahlonega. Our heritage has been preserved and celebrated throughout the community. For example, our old courthouse is now operated as a Gold Museum by the Georgia Dept. Natural Resources. Also, the town square has been preserved featuring a variety of restaurants, antique stores, craft stores, candymakers, and an old time general store.
- Lodging. As a tourist driven economy Dahlonega features a wide variety of hotels, motels, B&Bs, campgrounds, cabins, and vacation rentals for visitors. You can see a few of our favorites here: Lodging
- Attractions. There are lots of things for your guests to do while attending your wedding weekend. Achasta, a Jack Nicklaus designed course gives golfers a great experience in the mountains. You also have waterfalls to visit, hiking, wine tours, horseback rides, tubing/canoeing, and don’t forget to pan for gold at the local mines. See a complete list of things to do at our Chamber of Commerce website.

We are about to do what you will never see from a Dahlonega Wedding Venue… Like providing you with a list of some of our biggest competitors!
Why are we doing this?
Because we realize that getting married at Cavender Castle is not the right venue for everyone.
Our business is built upon couples looking for either an Elopement, or an affordable D-I-Y wedding venue. Most of our brides grew up dreaming of being a princess who gets married at a beautiful fairy-tale venue, like Cavender Castle.
However, we are not a good fit for couples looking for a Barn Wedding. Or for a Winery Wedding. But we do understand that every wedding in Dahlonega indirectly benefits us. All weddings help our local economy. And, all Dahlonega weddings put us on the short list for couples thinking about their future wedding plans.
Finally, Cavender Castle owner, Rev. Rick Durham is an ordained officiant who conducts ceremonies at most of these other Dahlonega Wedding venues. And, our staff also provides photography, and wedding planning services at many of the North Georgia Wedding Venues listed below.
Five Stars – (Fantastic Experience!)

They made all the stress go away by helping us plan our big day. They were very patient and understanding and kept us from scrambling around all by ourselves to get things organized. Once the wedding began they took care of everything and we didn’t have to worry about anything else!
Thank you so much for being do great and sharing the day with us!Brittany & Joel
