We loved EVERYTHING about this venue & the wedding planner, Brittany. The buildings & properties are well maintain & add a unique & personal touch for your special day. Everything about the venue has a vintage, rustic feel. The grounds are shaded, which helps wedding guests be comfortable when having an outdoor wedding. Having access to the farmhouse the entire day of the wedding provided us with a getting ready area, beautiful "getting ready" photos, a kitchen for lunch, & place for family members to rest & wait for the wedding. I also believe the value to be exceptional! We chose the "Classic Wedding" package & the fee included the wedding planner, & in addition, allowed us to use our own vendors for cake/cupcakes, flowers, DJ, etc. We also decorated the venue ourselves, which helped us meet our budget

I could not have asked for a better wedding venue than the John Oliver Michael House! The family-run venue is incredibly helpful and flexible and easy to contact. I felt like I was at home with my own family and felt very comfortable that my wedding would go off without a hitch. The property is gorgeous and well-maintained. I HIGHLY recommend the John Oliver Michael House to anyone looking for southern charm, rustic elegance, and a family feel! It was perfection.

Brittany is amazing. I know every other person who reviews has said this, but it really is true! I admit that i wasn't the easiest bride to work with (i'm a HUGE planner and i literally planned everything to the minute), but she was SO patient and so responsive and never once made me feel bad for being a little crazy. She was a pleasure to work with and would remember EVERYTHING i told her (seriously, i don't know how she remembered half of what i said, especially since i kept changing my mind every month or so).

Her family is wonderful too. her sister in law Jill helped out setting up the day before and was a pleasure to work with as well! Her mom was wonderful when she showed us the venue and had nothing but praises for how we decorated everything. Her dad was a little scary in the sense that he just seemed really REALLY serious (the complete opposite of what all the girls were like). I was a little scared to talk with him so i'd have my wedding planner do it but she says he's a really nice person. Our theory is that he's just a little bit of a perfectionist with his property (makes sense since his dad grew up in the house and he's built everything himself) so he's likely just very protective of everything.

Overall a wonderful family to do business with. The venue is absolutely gorgeous! The main house on the grounds is for the bride to use the day of the wedding (very useful because we had the hairstylists and makeup artists come to the house and all the bridesmaids and I got ready there). we had the ceremony outside and the reception in the barn (~160 people).

Also, Brittany's husband is the one who provides the bar tending services. I never got a chance to meet him (since people just handed me glasses of wine) but I've had several family members and friends tell me they were obsessed with this guy (apparently he's hilarious and everything you want in a bartender). i would highly recommend all around!

Brittany was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process! We chose to go with the Signature Package (definitely choose this option if your budget allows!) She made sure to stay within our budget that we discussed during our first meeting. She was very professional and I never once doubted she would be able to get everything done! The day of our wedding, her and her family arrived early to begin setting everything up. It all looked PERFECT by the time it was finished! It seemed like Brittany was able to read my mind because everything was set up exactly how I would have done it myself. We used the preferred vendor caterer, Twiggs Catering, and I am so glad we did! The food was wonderful, and we received multiple compliments on the food from guests! Definitely choose the Applewood Bacon Pork Tenderloin and squash casserole if they have it on the menu. It was amazing!! The photographer, Candice, was also amazing! She photographed our engagement session and those pictures were wonderful so I cannot wait to see the photos she captured on our wedding day! I could not have asked for a better wedding day. Brittany and her family definitely know how to coordinate an event. I definitely recommend you book this venue! :-)

I'm convinced that no other family will work harder to ensure a bride's wedding day is flawless than Brittany Wardlow and her family who operate the John Oliver Michael House. Further, there’s no venue more perfect, and affordable, for a beautiful wedding than the JOMH property.

Brittany was wonderfully attentive from my initial contact to the last minutes of our reception. Her professionalism is evident yet she makes you feel like family. She’s incredibly flexible and will do all things to alleviate stress, and excess expense, for her brides.

She has the uncanny ability to read her brides’ minds and somehow ward off rain on your wedding day. Because we were working against a 70% chance of rain, and because she has an amazing heart, Brittany set up all my reception décor the day of our wedding. She arranged everything as I would’ve with such little direction and oversight. As a result I was stress free and the barn looked amazing. Also, by a miracle, we had sunny skies for the event!

Additionally brides can enjoy use of the beautiful farmhouse the entirety of their wedding day. The house is the perfect size and layout for a number of women to dress, eat, and relax. We weren’t rushed to get ready or to clean up.

Finally, because Brittany works with her family, you are treated like a member of theirs, not a number or a source of revenue. Brides will love and appreciate not only Brittany, but also her parents, husband and relatives, as they all will work tirelessly on your behalf.

I wholeheartedly believe my experience with them is not unique to me, but who they are and how they treat all brides. We were thrilled with our experience and would highly recommend Brittany and JOMH to everyone.

The JOMH was a beautiful venue and they bent over backwards to create a beautiful day for my daughter's wedding. We had the ceremony outside under the pecan tree, and then a sit down dinner under a tent. Brittany is a pleasure to work with. I was planning a wedding from Michigan, with a bride in Australia. Brittany and team gladly had online chats for planning sessions, and accomodated my time in GA for meetings. Brittany worked as our wedding coordinator and took charge of everything. This special day would not have happened without all her hard work, and the work of the entire JOMH team. No task was too big or too small for Brittany to tackle, and all with a smile on her face and the patience of Job. She is a mother of the bride's dream coordinator....CALM! We decided pretty late in the planning to change the tent lighting to grapevine balls. Brittany tracked them down, designed the layout, and got them hung in the tent. The effect was amazing and so romantic! Thank you, again, to Brittany and the entire JOMH team for an unforgettable day!
