Looking for something more unique? Sports-loving couples should try Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Stripers, a golf course or the IceForum in Duluth. Are you and your future spouse the life of the party? Try taking photos at the annual Gwinnett County Fair (returns for 2 weeks every September) or a local brewery to show off your fun side.
