A Courthouse Ain't No Place for Your Wedding

Posted on January 10, 2018 at 2:55 PM

A Perfect Wedding Chapel in Stone Mountain, Georgia provides a setting for quick, simple events—weddings especially—with photo sessions and video shoots that might suggest a more elaborate event.

Founded by John and Catherine Howard. They specialize in an engaged couple (2 of Us)  or the couple and up to 35 guests. Tables and chairs are included. Easy recepions are optional. Bring your own food and drinks.—maybe cake and punch,finger foods or hors douvres. Sometimes, there’s not even a wedding. The couple may already be married; they just want wedding pictures.

Howard, who’s been a professional photographer for more than 20 years, said he was often hired to come to the courthouse to photograph a marriage. “A judge’s chambers is not really a good place for wedding pictures. In the background are the judge’s diplomas, pictures, awards—it’s not very romantic,” he said. “I thought it would be nice to have a setting where traditional wedding pictures could be taken even without a full-blown wedding.”

A wedding with flowers, a cake, a reception hall, tables and chairs and other traditional touches can cost approximately $27,000, according to “In the current economy, not many people can afford that, so they get married in the courthouse instead,” Howard said.

He said the money saved is not the only advantage to the wedding chapel approach. “Planning a wedding can be very stressful. Sometimes women end up getting upset with their fiancés because they’re not helping enough. There are problems with musicians, problems with the flowers, problems with the cake. You don’t have to worry about any of that here. It’s all here; you just show up and get married.”

Wedding packages start at $199 and up. Easy Receptions are $150. / hour with tables and chairs. Howard also pointed out that instead of months of planning, everything can happen very quickly. “You can call me on Monday morning and get married Monday afternoon,” he said. “You can even get a wedding album the same day.”

He said even couples opting for a low-budget wedding want it to have special touches, noting that some couples come to the courthouse in tuxedos and full-length bridal gowns. “You’d be surprised,” he said. “But when they’re dressed that nicely, they should have the pictures to go with it. Sometimes after the fact, they regret not having a pictures to put on Facebook, and other..”

 Wedding Chapels are popular in Las Vegas. Now you don't have to go to Vegas. Come to Wedding Chapel of Georgia. They are located a few miles north of Atlanta at 2156 West Park Court, Suite B, Stone Mountain, GA 30087, very close to the popular Stone Mountain Park Resort. 

Our Brides are treated special with their own Dressing and preparation Room with a "say yes to the dress" gold mirror and comfortable seating.


Howard gave the place a nickname "JOLLYWOOD Atl" and describes the place as similar to a Hollywood set. Actually, it’s like several small sets. There are such props as an arch of artificial flowers, electric candles, controlled lighting under which a couple can have their first dance, even a fake wedding cake. “But in a photo it all looks very real,” he said.


Red Velvet Event Hall was added to accommodate wedding receptions, private parties, celebrations, baby showers and other events for up to   .

“Even when you spend thousands of dollars on an wedding the real work begins the day after the wedding ceremony is over!. If you can’t afford to do all things you want , just do the important part, for now". That's what we do here at A Perfect Wedding Chapel, he said.
