Emory Catering and the Houston Mill House/Conferance Center

 Emory's Historic Houston Mill House is a Great Wedding Venue and Has a Wonderful Staff!

There is something that goes unsaid about weddings but what you really appreciate it when it works.  That is a great team!  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I have had the honor of shooting at many of Atlanta's Premiere facilities.  As some of you may know that I have done several weddings at the Emory Campus.  Recently I had the honor of shooting at the Houston Mill House again.  It is a beautiful historic event venue located in the heart of the Emory Campus.  What makes this venue truly great is the star professional staff that truly cares for it's clients.  That is what really makes a great venue!  The two people I want to highlight are Ezell and Jennifer.  They make a great team and compliment each others talents beautifully. They work hard to make your wedding enjoyable.  You could not ask for two better people to have on your wedding team!

As I mention before the Houston Mill House is a wonderful historic wedding venue.  To give you a little insight to the rich history I am going to include the story of this venue from their website.  They can say it much better than I:

"In the early 1900's people usually visited the Houston Mill for two reasons: to buy ground corn meal produced by Washington Jackson Houston's grist mill or to attend the frequent social gatherings on the grounds. An entrepreneur, Major Houston converted the mill into DeKalb County's first hydroelectric plant in 1900.

Harry J. Carr, an Atlanta contractor who built Druid Hills High School, the old DeKalb County Courthouse and the Candler Building downtown, bought the land from Major Houston in the early 1920's and constructed his home, now known as Houston Mill House. Mr. Carr used fieldstone, poured concrete, and wrought iron for his three story, fourteen room home. He also built a magnificent stone fireplace in the house's great room.

In the 1960's Emory University purchased the house and the surrounding property from Mr. Carr's estate. In the mid 1970's the Emory Women's Club orchestrated the renovation of the house. By the fall of 1979 the renovations were completed and the house was open for business. Twenty-five years later the house is still known throughout Atlanta to be one of the most elegant event facilities in the city."
