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!

I planned my wedding from out of state, so I had never even seen the John Oliver Michael House until the week of the wedding. I worked with Brittany over email and phone to get the whole day planned. The whole time Brittany seemed very laid back, friendly and open to my ideas but also provided helpful suggestions. We finally met Brittany in person 3 days before the wedding. Again, she was laid back but professional. At this point, she mostly just asked us tons of questions to find out the little details of our families, etc. Then, during the rehearsal she was still pretty open to seeing how things went. Again, she provided suggestions and totally directed everyone to where they needed to be, but wasn't bossy. Up until this point, everything was great, but it wasn't beyond my expectations. The day of the wedding she really impressed me - she took complete control of everything. I didn't have to worry about a SINGLE thing. In fact, there was one point that I started to boss people around because I was afraid something wasn't going to get taken care of - she asked me what I was worried about then told me she'd take care of it and not to worry - I was the bride. I am so thankful that she was there to make our wedding go off without a hitch!

Now for the location. We had about 45 people, a bar and a string quartet. She arranged everything in the barn so it had a perfect intimate feel! I was worried that it would feel to big with so few people, but she arranged everything to make it feel perfect! The fire in the huge fireplace also helped set the mood for our cozy reception. The food was amazing - Twigs did our catering. I couldn't taste anything before the big day but I was pleasantly surprised when we finally got to eat dinner (Brittany also helped make sure we got something to eat and drink - very attentive!). We had the herb stuffed chicken and roast beef - it was great! The presentation of the food was also very nice.

Our ceremony was outside under a beautiful tree - my only complaint is that the road was behind the guests (a country road, so not a lot of cars came by and there looked to be several other great places for a ceremony that didn't have the road so close). The brick path leading to the reception area was wonderful as was the "barn" itself. The grounds were cleaned up perfectly for the day of.

I tell everyone that my wedding day went well above and beyond what I expected and a lot of that is thanks to JOMH, Brittany and Twigs. :)

From the very beginning of the wedding process the John Oliver Michael House, helmed by Brittany Wardlow, was incredible. The list of preferred vendors was very helpful in finding trust worthy photographers/dj's/etc. It was a one stop source without all the googling and searching the yellow pages. It was great to be able to email with Brittany as well as have her in easy reach by phone. She even gave me her cell number! The planning sessions were very helpful and paper copies of all details, schedules, etc were provided for quick, easy reference. All parties involved with the house were professional and on the day of the wedding were dressed professionally as well. Everyone was very orderly and calm while at the same time being very friendly and enjoying the day. The clean up process, which is normally a huge hassle, was simple with Brittany and her associates directing the show. Everything made it to its proper place. If I had to think of something negative to say about this venue, I would be very hard pressed. The natural setting alone was worth the price, not to mention the inclusion of the chairs, tables, and arbor in the cost. In the end it saved us quite a bit not having to rent them seperately. Brittany Wardlow herself was an amazing assistant, going above and beyond, even helping decorate the car for our departure. I am so glad I chose John Oliver Michael House!

The John Oliver Michael House is such a gem! I am so incredibly happy that I found it. Brittany, her mom and dad, were all so wonderful and accommodating to work with! Brittany helped with so many of the planning elements, including: recommending wonderful vendors, coming to the food tasting, coordinating all my vendors timelines for the big day, staying in constant communication with me, answering my questions at all hours of the day. On our reception day, Brittany and her dad worked to ensure that every detail was complete and the grounds we immaculate. Brittany's husband, John, bartended for us and he picked up ice with my husband and set up the bar hours in advance to ensure everything was cold. Our guests raved about how wonderfully charming he was! Brittany was present during our whole reception and worked with our DJ and caterer to coordinate everything. She fixed me a plate of food and ensured my husband and I, my family, and his family, had drinks and were relaxed and having a good time. I would recommend the John Oliver Michael House to anyone! It's like working with old family friends and the grounds and building ("Olivers") is immaculately maintained. Our guests couldn't believe how beautiful the setting was and how they had never heard of it before.

My experience with John Oliver Michael house (JOMH) was absolutely fabulous. I would encourage anyone who wants a beautiful outdoor wedding under huge trees, that this is the place for you. I originally planned to have an outside wedding, but on my wedding day it was moved inside due to the extreme rain. This may seem as a brides worse nightmare, but the wedding was absolutely beautiful. Brittany, the wedding coordinator/ wedding planner took care of everything that day. I had no stress or worry, all I had to focus on was marrying the man of my dreams, my best friend. Leading up to the wedding, JOMH and Brittany were so easy to work with. I felt like I was at home with them, and that I was treated as if I were family. They were so willing to work with me, and they helped me design and create the wedding I desired. I never felt pressured to do or have the wedding a certain way, it was all about what my fiancé and I wanted. If you want an gorgeous outdoor wedding, with a relaxed staff who treats you like family, this is the place for you. :)

We could not have picked a better place to get married. The John Oliver Michael House feels like home, and the Michael family runs in circles to make your day perfect and stress free. I had nothing to worry about on our wedding day. Brittany Michael Wardlow was incredible. She was always there when I needed help with anything. It was a beautiful wedding, and we still recieve complements about how perfect it was. People even have used the words "Fairy Tale" to describe our wedding. The John Oliver Michael House is amazing!

I absolutely love everything about the John Oliver Michael House! I was so pleased with every little detail. Brittany, her mother, and her father are such sweet people, I felt as if I was having my wedding in my own backyard. We had an outdoor wedding and it rained the whole time, but it was absolutely breathtaking! I could not have imagined having my wedding anywhere else. I highly recommend this place to any and everyone!

Brittany and the rest of the Michael family really make you feel like you are at a relatives house. I felt like I was at my Mimi's house! It was wonderful and everything we wanted.
They are so welcoming and just an enjoy to be around. They allow you to come to the grounds in the AM and give you all day to set up - or if you like - they will do it for you!
As far as the value of the facility - it is huge. You not only use of the grounds (not just a room!) for the entire day, you get tables, chairs, linens, coordination, parking and use of their decor.
This is a great place for those who want a rustic, homey, non-stuff atmosphere. It is very southern without being 'precious.' Jason and I want to have a one year anniversary just so we have a valid excuse to return!

When I saw this venue I knew immediately that this was the place for our wedding. I wanted a rustic, fall, outdoor wedding and the John Oliver Michael House is perfect. The Michael Family are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. They anticipated my every need, I didn't worry about a thing. The event coordinator there, Brittany Wardlow, is now a good friend of mine. She's also the grand daughter of the builder of the home. She asked all the right questions, put my mind at ease throughout the entire event and whenever I turned my head to look for her she was by my side in a moment to answer whatever concern I had (which were few). I didn't follow their traditional set up at the JOMH and they seemed to be thrilled to do something different. Whatever I requested they made it happen. With their new reception hall, I never worried if it was going to rain, we knew we were covered.
My family was blown away with the setting, so romantic, so rustic and so right! Thank you so much Michael Family. I am so pleased with my wedding location.

The coordinator at JOMH, Brittany, was amazing. She helped with every step of the process, from providing helpful advice on other vendors to scheduling meetings around my hectic schedule to making sure that every person was exactly where they needed to be the day of the wedding. Everyone there was so nice and the location was phenomenal. And for the price... it includes Brittany's coordinating services, the rental chairs and tents, table linens, ceremony and reception venue for our 200+ guests. We were truly blown away with how wonderful everything was, and it wouldn't have been the same anywhere else. When we met with Brittany for the first time just to look around I was pretty much sold.

If you are looking for an all inclusive wedding venue this is the one. When we toured the JOMH we walked away knowing this was the one and only place we could get married. Our coordinator Brittany was so professional while still making us feel like we were family. The entire Michael family worked so hard to make our day special. Just as the ceremony began it started to rain. Brittany and her family quickly moved all of the guests and everyone inside Oliver's for the wedding. They say rain on your wedding day is lucky and I truly feel that. Our wedding was just as beautiful inside as it would have been outside. I had the wedding of my dreams and that could not have happened without Brittany and the Michael family and the beautiful wedding venue called the John Oliver Michael House.
