What is a wedding coordinator? This service can go by many names (Day-of Coordinator, Wedding Management, Month-of Coordinator) but it is essentially this: a wedding coordinator takes the plans you have worked tirelessly on, and makes sure they happen smoothly and that you have a fun, stress-free day.

Venue Spotlight: The Library Ballroom

The history nerd in me is thrilled about today's featured Middle Georgia Wedding Venue. I have always been fascinated by Macon' history, and I love getting to know the story behind some of our city's 100+ year old buildings. Today's spotlight is on a popular wedding venue located in the heart of downtown with a wonderfully weird backstory. 

The Library Ballroom is an impressive structure that sits on Mulberry Street in downtown Macon. The fun turret at the top makes it stand out from its peers, another feature that is just quirky enough to work. Beautifully restored in recent years, this space is home to music festivals, community events, and (of course) dozens of weddings throughout the year. The rich, elegant details immediately make you feel like you've stepped back in time.

From the Library Ballroom:

The Library Ballroom was constructed in 1889 by the "Macon Public Library and Historical Society" to house Macon’s first public library. In the 1960's and 70's the building was known as the College Discotheque and was actually the first paid show of the famous Allman Brothers Band. Eventually, the ballroom fell into disuse, but was later acquired by the Historic Macon Foundation after it faced demolition in the 1990's. More recently, the building was purchased by Tony Widner, of Widner & Associates, Inc., who performed a complete renovation restoring the building to its original beauty. In 2007, the building was awarded by the Historic Macon Foundation for the renovations and was placed on the National Registrar of Historic Places.
