Small Weddings, Big Hearts – Piedmont Park Conservancy Helps Atlantans Host Small Weddings

While our lives have slowed down with quarantines and reduced travel, hearts are still racing throughout the city. Some couples are bonding over the increased time together and are wanting to tie the knot. Others had pre-pandemic weddings planned and can’t wait to seal the deal.

Piedmont Park Conservancy began offering elopements back in June and hosted 23 small weddings in four months.

“We weren’t sure how many couples would need a safe and intimate venue, but calls kept coming in asking about private spaces so we decided to try it,” says Jane Rollo, Director of Facility Rentals.

“We made the choice to elope because I really wanted to marry Alison. Nothing was going to stop us from being together” says Nigel.

Surrounded by their parents, a few other immediate family members and a beautiful lake backdrop, Alison and Nigel were wed at Dockside in Piedmont Park.

“We decided to hold our special day at Piedmont Park because it’s a one-of-a-kind place. The dock is such a tranquil & serene location. As soon as I saw it in person, I just knew that it was the perfect place,” says Alison.
