Kingston Stables is an historic farm nestled in the North Georgia mountains on the shores of Lake Rabun, offering acres of lush natural landscape for your elegantly rustic outdoor wedding. Formerly a horse pasture, the wedding venue grounds feature the original horse barn, vintage stacked-stone walls, towering pines & hemlock, a bubbling spring-fed creek, gentle rolling hills, and a lakefront lawn set in a private cove. The estate has been family owned since the early 1920s and has hosted weddings since 2009.
The grounds offer multiple settings to accomodate your perfect outdoor wedding:
Garden of Trees
Ideally situated for a ceremony, the garden is bordered by tall pines and a spring-fed creek on all sides. A vintage stacked-stone wall encircles the setting, and the gentle slope lends itself to natural stadium-style seating so each guest has a perfect view of the vows.
Located on the shores of Lake Rabun, the lawn can host wedding ceremonies and/or receptions. Guests enjoy the true lake backdrop from this special setting. This space offers the most level surface throughout the state, ideal for tenting. Lawn ceremonies features a dramatic processional as the bride appears to enter from the forest.
Popular for cocktail hours and lawn games, the meadow is located between the Garden of Trees and Lakefront Lawn, making it an ideal transition space while the bridal party finishes photos. Bordered by a creek and reflecting pool on one side and tall pines on the other, the meadow can also host ceremonies or receptions.
The local area offers a variety of outdoor adventures, antique shopping, wineries, + more. Nearby hotels, restaurants, + activities will delight guests of all ages.
