Explore Wedding Venues at Oakland Cemetery

If you’re a fan of Oakland Cemetery, you’ve probably heard that we hold more weddings than funerals. It’s true! With beautiful garden vistas and historic buildings and monuments, Oakland Cemetery is one of Atlanta’s most unique places to create meaningful moments.

Located in the heart of Atlanta with dramatic downtown views, Oakland Cemetery’s 48 acres are full of treasures – history and gardens, sculpture and architecture, towering oaks and magnolias. Complete with gardens, mausolea, and historic buildings, Oakland Cemetery offers a variety of indoor and outdoor venues for all types of wedding-related events, including engagement parties, intimate elopements, vow renewal celebrations, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, and receptions. Let’s explore them:

The Oakland Bell Tower

Our premiere venue is the Oakland Bell Tower, which just underwent extensive rehabilitation. Originally constructed in 1899 the Bell Tower offers the best of old and new. The beautiful Romanesque building is the centerpiece of Oakland, featuring two floors of indoor event space, as well as four spacious covered porches overlooking the cemetery and Atlanta skyline. It’s the perfect place to host up to 100 guests.
