Hamilton Rhododendron - Wedding & Rentals

We offer a wide range of venues and additional services to accommodate any occasion. Our goal is to ensure that your event becomes a ‘treasured memory'. 

 The Hamilton Gardens, Paris Pavilion is a 2,500 square foot, fully furnished event venue with unsurpassed, stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountain range, the rise of the Appalachians and, yes, a clear shot of the highest peak in Georgia, Brasstown Bald. 

 In addition to all of this, the Paris Pavilion is surrounded by the largest collection of Rhododendron and Native Azalea in the Southeast – The Hamilton Rhododendron Gardens – a 40 acre woodland, botanical garden. An event photographer's dream! Complete with bridges, overlook decks, an arbor and a working water wheel that supplies a gentle waterfall. Lake Chatuge is the icing on the cake – an overlook deck and walking trail is perched at the water's edge – supplying a 180 view of the lakes east inlet and Bell Mountain.

Located 20 yards from the Pavilion stands a 200 square foot event stage that opens out onto a groomed lawn that will seat 100 guests. Professional stage lighting and electricity included. A perfect spot to exchange wedding vows, live performances or for delivering speeches. PA system and podium are available. 

Under the cool shade of Oak and Poplar trees, additional seating can be found just outside the Paris Pavilion. The garden's seasonal courtyard is complete with ten, 60” round tables / 4 to 5 chairs per table and ten picnic tables seating 6 guests each. Electricity and night lighting are included. Outdoor space heaters are available. Dressing rooms and restrooms are located directly off the courtyard. 

We hope that you will consider booking your next corporate event, family gathering or your dream wedding at the Hamilton Gardens. All profit from these events helps support the ongoing effort to restore, rejuvenate and maintain the Hamilton Rhododendron Gardens.
