Originally founded as the settlement of Terminus (marking the end of the Western & Atlantic Railroad) in 1837, Atlanta has grown into a kind of final destination for all things creative, familial, and community-driven. Since hosting the 1996 Olympics and most notably in the last three years, the revitalization of Atlanta’s neighborhoods has driven artists, families, professionals, and urbanites from the drab, traffic-invested suburbs to the heart of an evolving city.
The on-going Beltline project is in full force as the city is converting 22-miles of abandoned, unused railway (formally the Beltway) circling its perimeter into a walkable, bike-able, and ride-able interconnected path. This initiative has driven economic growth, cultural diversity, and creative ventures from local breweries to production companies and a nationally-recognized food scene.
In 2016 Georgia was named the number three location in the world for film production, second only to New York and California. From films like the The Hunger Games or The Fast and the Furious to hit shows like The Walking Dead, Atlanta is accelerating creative possibilities for the industry worldwide. The city’s attractive tax incentives, busy airport, and preferable climate have driven nearly 3,000 motion picture and television industry businesses to call Atlanta home.
Atlanta is also the home of a thriving wedding industry. Whether you fancy the luxury of an Midtown venue like the Biltmore Hotel or the rustic, southern comfort of the Foxhall Resort & Sporting Club, Atlanta has it all. With an estimated 37,000 weddings per year, Georgia is overflowing with venues, venders, and endless possibilities for your big day. Rooted Pine is fortunate to be a one of the core contributors to the wedding space in our wonderful city, and we would be honored to partner with you and your wedding vision here in Atlanta.
