This will be an ongoing series of posts with an inside look at some to the resources available for YOUR event planning.
Although we do most of our work in Macon, Georgia, our photography business is actually located in Forsyth. Forsythians have long known of Gallery 51 as an art gallery / custom design stained glass studio. What YOU need to know is that they are putting the finishing touches on converting the art gallery into a very classy event facility. While some sculptures, stained glass and wall mounted art pieces remain, all of the fixtures have been removed. This leaves tons of space for tables, chairs (seating for up to 350) and your guests to mingle.
This past week, Meghan Mitchell (their event coordinator) gave me a tour of the remodeled facility and I was very impressed. There are tulle draped minilights that give a very romantic feel to the place. The adjectives of “warm and inviting” quickly come to mind. The remaining artwork certainly provides a touch of class. Meghan tells me that her rental fees include some extras that usually are not included elsewhere. One thing that I know you’ll like is the freedom to choose your own florist, photographer, caterer, etc. Gallery 51 doesn’t place any restrictions on who you can use for your event services. She tells me the story of one client who will be using the Varsity (a big name in Atlanta) to cater the reception.
