Decatur Wedding Venue | Dekalb History Center

The Dekalb History Center, with it's marble walls, decorative crown molding, and magnificent arched windows is a wonderful place for weddings, b'not mitzvahs, anniversaries or any other historic event. Located in the old courthouse where Clairmont intersects Ponce de Leon in the heart of Decatur, this venue offers a large bridal suite, a downstairs foyer perfect for a dance floor, and the grand ballroom, which was once the courtroom. Stacey Roudebush, Rental Coordinator and Administrator at the Center, is easy-going and fun to work with. One client said, "Stacey ... was very helpful from the first day we visited up until days after the wedding."

If you're looking for some place, chic, unique and romantic for your event, this just may be the venue for you. Here are a few photos to give you a sense of the place:

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
