Welcome to part 2 of my Middle Georgia Wedding Venue series! Now that I've gathered as many venues as I could find here, I want to spend some time getting to know these places a little better. This first spotlight is near and dear to my heart.
New City Weddings is a brand new venue that opened in March of this year, and I am fortunate to be one of the event coordinators there! I am so excited to share this piece of my heart with you!
New City Church purchased the building at 1015 Riverside Drive and began remodeling it to be their new home. In the process of the renovation, it became clear that the building had so much potential as a venue unlike any other in Macon. The big bright windows, the exposed brick, and the industrial feel created a unique environment that didn't exist anywhere else in town. When I joined New City last year, the project was well under way and nearing completion.
Fun piece of history: this building has been many things in its roughly 100 years, but it's original purpose was to power the trolley system in Macon! It was also a club called Nashville South (where Jason Aldean was discovered), and most recently the Power Station night club. It is such a gorgeous space, and brings so many stories with it.
Now it is home to New City Church, and hosts weddings and events throughout the year as New City Weddings. Here are some fast facts:
Ceremony & Reception: Either or both!
Tables and chairs: Included
Bridal suite: Included
Alcohol: Beer and wine permitted
Catering: Warming kitchen available
Vendors: We would love to recommend some, but you are welcome to choose your own.
