Four Reasons Lanier Islands is Atlanta’s Home for South Asian Weddings

With more than a dozen stunning wedding and reception venues from which to choose and a dedicated team of talented wedding specialists with whom to work, Lanier Islands has rapidly gained favor among brides- and grooms-to-be throughout the Southeast. That is becoming increasingly true for South Asian Weddings – splendid celebrations steeped in culture and tradition that take place over the course of several days with guest lists numbering in the hundreds. “Why Lanier Islands?” you may ask… well, let us tell you:

  • Splendidly Scenic Destination: Lanier Islands is well-known for the stunning 38,000 surface acre lake for which we are named. That lake provides us with sweeping panoramic views from many of our wedding venues. Half a world away, the country of India is well-known for its stunning mountain ranges and abundance of scenic shorelines. Bounded on all sides by the Himalayans to the north, the Indian Ocean to the south, the Arabian Sea to the west and the Bay of Bengal to the east, it’s really no wonder why many South Asian weddings are held outdoors over the course of several days. Lanier Islands proves an ideal “home away from home” for many South Asian brides, grooms and their guests.
  • Impressively Sized and Varied Wedding Venues: With guest lists numbering in the hundreds and a number of events that surround the marriage ceremony itself, South Asian weddings not only require space, but a variety of venues from which to choose. That way, the soon-to-be-wed couple is not hosting every event in the same space. Lanier Islands offers several venues that can accommodate a large number of guests, such as the Grand Ballroom at Legacy Lodge – which can accommodate up to 350 guests and Peachtree Pointe – which offers stunning views of the lake and a pairing of enclosed pavilion and open-air arena that can accommodate up to 500 guests. Needless to say, not all events require space enough for the entire guest list. Those involving smaller groups are where our incredible VARIETY of venues comes into play. One event may be hosted on an excursion yacht at sunset, while another could be hosted on a sprawling lawn overlooking the lake. To start dreaming of all of the possibilities, sneak a peek at all of our available venues.

  • Wealth of Accommodations and Activities: With so many guests to lodge and entertain, planning a South Asian wedding of any magnitude can become daunting. That isn’t the case when it comes to weddings at Lanier Islands! Not only do we offer an abundance of deluxe rooms and suites in our Legacy Lodge – an esteemed member of Southern Living’s Hotel Collection, but we also offer luxury lodging in our lakeside Legacy Villas and our Legacy LakeHouses.

  • Experienced Team of Wedding Specialists and Preferred Vendors at Your Disposal: Having hosted a large number of Multicultural and South Asian weddings at the resort, we’ve become extremely well-educated about all of the distinctive traditions and elements that go into each event. Our team of wedding specialists is also highly skilled at helping the bride and groom put their own unique spin on their big day – whether woven throughout the occasion or tied to one specific event.
