Agape Acres is a 43-acre family-owned horse farm with rolling pastures, a picturesque pond full of bass, beautiful oak, apple, peach, and pear trees, surrounded by wildflowers galore! Nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and just an hour north of Atlanta, Agape Acres provides the perfect destination for your event or special occasion.
When we renovated the Barn, we envisioned an elegant and rustic setting with lofted ceilings and open spaces for dancing, toasting, and celebrating. The Barn, Pavilion, Rocking-chair Porch, Courtyard, pond, and open pastures provide a one-of-a-kind backdrop for weddings, rehearsal dinners, dance-til-you-drop corporate events, reunions, holiday parties, and other celebrations.
Our Instagram-ready Gazebo overlooking the pond is the perfect place for a bride and groom to say "I do."
We built Agape Acres, knowing there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all wedding or event. From outdoor weddings, milestone birthday celebrations, family reunions, corporate parties, and other events...our North Georgia event space and wedding venue is where your storybook celebration happens!
Imagine on your perfect day walking hand in hand through the lush green pastures overlooking the pond to say your "I do's" as the blue skies shine from above. Your picture-perfect day with the perfect vibe to celebrate your new chapter...that's Agape!
Our modern rustic barn is perfect for your special day. Imagine descending the bride’s loft stairs to exchange your vows inside the barn or at the gazebo overlooking the pond. Afterward, enjoy mingling with your guests in the courtyard or the pavilion and dancing the night away.
Our mission is to ensure that your wedding day is stress-free and just as you envisioned. Our Wedding Venue is waiting to set the perfect stage for your "Dream Wedding." We look forward to meeting and scheduling a tour with you soon!
Agape Acres is the ideal North Georgia location for corporate events, company picnics, seasonal parties, team-building initiatives, and executive retreats. Celebrate those milestone birthdays...have a family reunion, or create an event with your fellow hobbyists. We offer acres of outdoor space and 5,000 square feet of indoor space with seating for 175 guests, restroom facilities, a caterer's kitchen, a dancefloor, and a bar and lounge area.
Beautiful venue and facilities await your next celebration

At Agape Acres, we know that no two weddings are alike. That’s why we offer “Venue-only rentals” for the bride that wants a “Do It Yourself” (DIY) wedding, or “All-inclusive Packages” where we do it all. Or, if you prefer…something in between. We customize each event based on your vision, dream, and budget. Many competitors will try to “fit you in a box,” however, we customize each package—and that doesn’t mean that you pay more.

“The owner and her family are so amazing. I have a beautiful 15 year old daughter and we had her Quinceanera at Agape Acres. I had a blurred vision of what I hoped for and Cindy not only cleared that vision, but brought it to life. The level of service, professionalism, and pure dedication to make my daughters dreams come true, was astounding. I can with all certainty and honesty tell you that every guest we invited, complimented the venue, the food, the decorations, the attention to detail and the attention given by the owners. I was so honored to be able to enjoy the services at Agape and will recommend them to EVERY and ALL that I know. — PROUD MOM
“Wonderful couple that have opened their Barn as event venue to share special occasions with others. Had our family reunion there for 100 people and it was a great. Had a bouncy-house outdoors for kids as well as horseshoes, cornhole, volleyball and bass fishing! Owners go out of their way to accommodate your needs.”— THE KING FAMILY
“Agape Acres will provide a beautiful setting for your Dream wedding. One of the owners was an event planner for a major corporation for over 20 years and coordinates every aspect of setting up and every detail needed. They are easy to work with and will accommodate you every way they can. To me, this is the premier venue in the area and I would HIGHLY recommend Agape Acres to anyone.”— WEDDING PLANNER
Agape acres hosted my daughter's wedding this past weekend. I can't say enough how great Cindy, her husband David and their son were to not only the wedding party but all the guests that interacted with them. From rehearsal through the ceremony and reception everything was well choreographed and timely. Not one iota of apprehension on our part because Cindy was on her game! Would highly recommend this venue not only because of the gorgeous setting but , more importantly, because of the the owners who facilitate everything flawlessly making your event worry free! Thank you for the great weekend - Trevor
We just got married here this weekend and I can’t recommend it enough. Great location, beautiful inside and outside area, spacious bridal suite, plenty photo opportunities, and beautiful view over the lake. It was my dream venue. Cindy, the manager, is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through. She was easy to work with, professional from the start and went above and beyond to make my day perfect. Agape Acres also works with a lot of great vendors that they recommend to you which made the whole process much smoother. All of our expectations were met and then some. So thankful to have found this amazing venue and staff! - Mackensie
Super special venue. David and Cindy are wonderful hosts. Definitely go experience Agape Acres. It will not disappoint you! - Danylle
Cindy and her team gave amazing service! The level of professionalism and detail was overwhelming and we never imagined that our daughters Quinceanera would come out so successful. Our daughter and her friends have not stopped talking about the amazing time they had. Our family and friends were all amazed and impressed by how beautiful everything turned out. If you are looking to have an event that you want to guarantee attention to detail and have someone guarantee your vison comes true? Go with AGAPE!!! - Mario
