“The house is beautiful!”

We are so happy we chose the Mary Gay house as our wedding venue. Throughout the planning process Missy was quick to respond with any questions we had. And we had a lot. The house is beautiful and the outdoor area was a perfect setting for our ceremony. The time slot available to us (Saturday morning/afternoon) was perfect for our brunch wedding. It's a great plus that there is plenty of parking right across the street. And downtown Decatur is within walking distance.

“just perfect.”

The venue was the perfect setting for our wedding day ceremony and reception. We had close to 100 guests and that seemed to be just the right fit with dancing and some tables indoors and more tables outside to enjoy the perfect spring evening. The venue is beautiful, flowers in the courtyard were blooming and it felt like too much decorating would be a bad thing!

My experience with The Mary Gay House was one of the best. They were helpful in every way possible and the space was absolutely perfect for all of our needs. We were so pleased that we plan on having our holiday party here every year. I can't wait to do business with them again.

“I couldn't be happier!”

I couldn't be happier with the way our wedding day turned out at this venue! We had 100 guests with a seated dinner and space for a dance floor, and it was the perfect amount of space. We loved the cozy feel of this venue - very unique in that it doesn't feel like a grand reception hall. Parking was very easy for guests and its conveniently located close enough to the Marriot downtown.


“Our wedding was beautiful.”

We planned our wedding from Phoenix and we had the most stress free experience. They have the perfect size facility for a small wedding. We chose to have the ceremony outside and the reception inside. It was easy for our guests to transition easily. We chose two food truck vendors from their list and we loved them. My husband is a chef and was not too keen on having food trucks. But we found that they were very reasonably priced and the guests loved the food.

I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else! The Mary Gay House was the perfect setting for our Sunday brunch wedding and reception. The space is charming, intimate, and filled with character, and the outdoor amenities are ideal for both setup and unique backdrops for photos. The staff, specifically Missy, are super helpful. This venue is a FANTASTIC value, too - the cherry on top. Would recommend to anyone!

it was perfect.

We had our wedding reception at the Mary Gay House and it was outstanding. From the moment I started planning and saw the space I knew it would be excellent. Elizabeth was super easy to work with and very helpful with suggestions, timelines, organization...all the stuff I didn't know because I'd clearly never planned a wedding before! The day of the wedding things went off without a hitch. One of the best things about this space is how "warm" it is, and how little decoration is needed if that's not your thing. We just had tablecloths and lots of bunches of very colorful flowers, and it was perfect. I would hold another event at the MGH in a heartbeat!

Thank goodness we chose MGH for BOTH our rehearsal dinner and wedding location (both ceremony and reception!) Elizabeth is a joy to work with; she's so generous with her time and resources. The venue itself is so beautiful and feels cozy like a relative's home. It's an ideal size for a 100 person event. It is easy to find for guests and offers easy parking. Many great locations on site for photography. I could go on. Great for our vintage garden wedding and casual barbecue rehearsal. Great price - AND it's a nonprofit!
