  • Our wedding at the Mary Gay House was amazing!!! We ended up with a guest count of 138 and were able to comfortable fit everyone for our seated/plated dinner with a combination of tables inside and on the patio. Missy is awesome to work with and we absolutely loved getting married at the Mary Gay House!

  • We had a 100 person wedding at the Mary Gay House, and it was just perfect for us. We had the ceremony outdoors on the brick patio, and used both the inside and outside for the cocktail reception and dinner. It's a beautiful, charming venue, and was exactly what we were looking for.

  • The Mary Gay House is a hidden gem in the Decatur area. Not only was the venue very reasonable priced and spacious, they were very punctual with communication, appointments, and very flexible with what my wife and I wanted to do for our guests at the venue. If you are looking for a venue for a wedding or even a reception, The Mary Gay House will exceed your standards.
