Hi friends, Amber here! Today I want to review another wedding venue in the heart of Atlanta, Terminus 330.
All of the photos in this post were taken by the amazing Ashley White. Be sure to check her out at www.AshleyWhitePhotos.com. This wedding last fall was absolutely too precious for words, and Ashley did such a great job of capturing this sweet couple!
As always, I have a lot of thoughts about venues. Let's start with my positives.
First of all, I just love the "vibe" of the space. It's got sort of an industrial feel with all the brick, exposed pipes, metal railings, etc. But they warm up the space with lots of florals, velvet sofas, drapery, etc. I LOVE the brick backdrop for a wedding ceremony.
In the photo above, you can get a better idea of the "industrial" feeling with the metal railings. I love the natural light coming in from the big windows!
Another great thing is that Terminus 330 is an all-inclusive venue, so they have the ability take care of in-house catering, in-house beverage service, setup and breakdown, etc. As I understand it, they also offer other services such as design and florals, but in the case of this wedding, there were other vendors brought in for things like the florals and live music. I'll tag all the vendors at the bottom of this post!
WHAT IS MY FACE DOING IN THIS PHOTO ABOVE? I DO NOT KNOW. Lol
The ceremony space transforms into a gorgeous space for the reception. I'm loving the natural light streaming in through the big windows. So magical! During cocktail hour, guests can go outside onto the back patio while the ceremony space is being flipped. That back patio is also a great place to take photos in natural light with some city buildings in the background! You'll see a few of those photos farther down this post. You know I love a venue that has somewhere fun to take photos! That's always a plus in my book.
Now onto my negatives.
The biggest negative for me is parking (if you know me, you're not surprised by this, haha.) Like many venues inside the city, parking is not easy at this venue. There's no parking at the venue itself, so you have to find parking at one of the decks nearby. The decks are not super close, so there's a good bit of walking involved. If my memory is right, I think for this particular wedding, we parked at a nearby hotel, and our parking was validated (yay for parking validation!)
The biggest thing that I'm mindful of with this venue is unloading/loading all of our gear. In front of the venue, there's no lane to pull over and unload, so it's honestly a bit of a safety hazard to just stop traffic in the middle of the road in order to unload. I always assume that perhaps there's some backdoor loading dock that I just don't know about, so I'm hoping that's the case with Terminus 330. Just something to keep in mind!
This last thing is going to sound super random, but I just tend to notice everything, haha! It's important to know that the kitchen is directly beside the ceremony space, so when you walk into the venue, there's a really strong food smell. This could be a good or not-so-good thing, depending on who you ask!
Oh my gosh I love all these natural-light photos though! This is the outdoor space I was talking about earlier. I love how you can have the cityscape in the background!
Overall, I give this venue a 7.5 out of 10, with my biggest considerations being parking and safety in terms of unloading.
Let's make some noise for this precious little family! The puppy smiling, I die.
Here's all the great vendors for this one!
