About The Temple Macon
The Temple Macon, a special event venue located in Macon, Georgia, seamlessly combines history with modern elegance. This dazzling space was designed by architect W. Elliott Dunwoody, Jr. The Egyptian-themed decorative 27’ high ceilings and murals were created by Athos Menaboni – one of Georgia’s most prominent artists. The building, once the largest auditorium in Georgia outside of Atlanta, opened its doors in 1931 right in the heart of Macon across from City Hall, next to the iconic Rosa Parks Square, and diagonally set to the Macon Auditorium. Now, couples can experience the glamour of this premier venue on their wedding day. You and your wedding party will also be conveniently located near hotels and AB&B’s that you can stay in after the ceremony and reception is over.

Facilities and Capacity
The Temple features enough space for you to celebrate your wedding day with up to 400 of your friends and family. The entire venue encompasses over 18,000 square feet of space. Couples can choose from a variety of areas found throughout the interior. The Main Ballroom gives you a glamorous, one-of-a-kind backdrop with its 27’ tall ceilings, hard wood floors, and installed lighting and A/V features. For a unique touch, this space features a Mezzanine balcony with Port Cochere Overlook Patio, Bridal Suites, vendor and entertainment Green Room, and Macon’s only 7,000 square feet roof-top venue space. Your wedding party and guests will be amazed at the grandeur of your event.
