Our great climate and southern hospitality make North Georgia an ideal place to have a destination wedding.

You have options for both large weddings and small wedding venues in North Georgia.  There is even a castle… Cavender Castle… one of the original wedding venues in North Georgia!

The Castle, owned by the Durham Family is in its 14th year of hosting North Georgia Weddings.  We are one of the original wedding venues in North Georgia.   

Located in Dahlonega, just one hour north of Atlanta, we have earned a rock solid reputation for “Royal Weddings that are not a Royal Pain”.

We are about to do what you will never see on a wedding venue website…

Like providing you with a list of some of our biggest competitors!  


Because we realize that getting married at a Castle is not for everyone.  We appeal to couples looking for a stress-free all inclusive wedding.  Many of our brides grew up dreaming of being a princess who gets married at a beautiful fairy-tale like Castle.

That’s what we do… elegant, but comfortable.

However, our venue is not a  good fit for couples looking for a D-I-Y wedding or those looking for rustic barn weddings and winery weddings.  

Not only that, be we understand that every wedding in North Georgia indirectly benefits us.  Weddings help our local economy and puts North Georgia on the map for couples thinking about their future wedding plans.  And at Cavender Castle we might also host a Rehearsal Dinner for couples getting married at one of the other Wedding Venues in North Georgia.  

Plus, Cavender Castle owner, Rev. Rick Durham often conducts ceremonies at these other venues.  Additionally, our staff also provides photography, DJ and wedding planning services at many of the North Georgia Wedding Venues listed below.

It is said that a rising tide floats all boats… here is proof:
