The Location

Guardian Works is located at 775 Echo St NW in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s part of Echo Street West, which is a development along the newest section of the Westside Beltline by Lincoln Property Company. The building was once a chemical company and perfumery established back in 1926, but has been recently renovated and re-established by Novare Events in 2021. They’ve kept a lot of elements of the original building including the brick walls, concrete floors, metal sliding doors and equipment such as the metal vats and scales. It’s a very industrial area with lots of construction undergoing around the venue. 

The Wedding Venue

One of the features that makes Guardian Works a great venue is the amount of space it offers, which is especially rare for being in Atlanta! It contains over 8,000 square feet of indoor space, 5,000 square feet of open-air patio space and a 10,000 sq ft lawn. Depending which ceremony location you choose, you can have up to 250 guests for your wedding. The space can also host other private events such as corporate functions and cocktail parties.

The Ceremony

Most commonly, couples choose to have their ceremony in the back room of the venue which features brick walls and lots of windows for natural light. We recommend choosing a time of day that is in the evening, when the sun is low enough that it doesn’t create uneven lighting on the couples faces. You can also choose to have your ceremony in the large indoor space, on the open-air patio or the lawn.

Cocktail Hour

The patio offers 5,000 sq ft of covered, open air space, perfect for cocktail hour! Since there’s currently a lot of construction going on around the venue, visible from this space, we’d recommend putting up drapes as seen in these photos.


Most commonly, the reception will be held in the largest room inside the building which features brick walls, large windows and wooden beams. There’s lots of space in the reception area for you and your guests to enjoy dinner, drinks, toasts, cake cutting, a huge dance floor and more!
