My new husband and I could not be more pleased with choosing the Payne Corley house for our wedding reception!! The venue is gorgeous -- renovated to have a more rustic/vintage feel to it. There is plenty of room inside, and areas outside for guests to roam if the weather is nice. The staff is incredible. They truly have it down to a science. My husband and I had high expectations because of all the great reviews we read on the staff prior to choosing the PCH as our reception venue. They really lived up to our high expectations. Krista was our event coordinator and made the whole process stress-free. We had lots of decorations we brought in on our own (although the place is gorgeous on it's own), and she took care of all placement and walked us through the planning. The day of the reception, we were able to visit and dance without worrying about any details. Krista even made sure my husband and I ate, and sent us off with a bag of leftovers to enjoy! If you are considering having your wedding or reception here, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend it. Several of the guests at our wedding have mentioned wanting to plan future events there because of how "flawless" it truly was!!

From the outset, PCH was the best wedding reception. Krista, Hope, Michael, Stephanie and the rest of the PCH staff were gracious and responsive starting with our initial contact email requesting whether they had our date available. Stephanie was our event coordinator and was always responsive when I had even the smallest of questions, or my last minute weather freak out. I never even thought about this place prior to getting engaged but could not imagine having my wedding reception anywhere else. There is simply not a better bargain, and the quality of the food and service far exceeded what we actually paid. If getting married in Georgia, I highly recommend considering PCH.

My wedding was everything I dreamed of. I had a lot of DIY projects, thanks to Pinterest. The team at Payne-Corley were great about making sure all of my little details were placed exactly how and where I wanted them. The food was delicious, my friends are still talking about the macaroni martinis.

There honestly aren't words to describe how amazing this venue and thier staff really is! From the day we saw Payne Corley House for the first time until the moment we rode off in our limo, the Payne Corley Team assured that every detail was beyond perfect. Our assigned wedding planner, Jen, was an absolute angel and thought of everything that I didn't through the planning process. I did not get stressed out one time because Jen and Hope made everything so uncomplicated. I pretty much told them when we wanted to get married and what we wanted to eat and they handled every detail for us. The wedding was incredibly beautiful and intimate, the food was spectacular, and every vendor they suggested did an amazing job. On top of all of that, the value can NOT be beat. By far the most incredible wedding venue I have ever been to and am forever grateful for the memories we made on the best day of our lives. THANK YOU PAYNE CORLEY TEAM FOR GIVING US OUR DREAM WEDDING!!!!

From the moment I stepped into the Payne-Corley House, I knew that it is where I would have my dream wedding! It is absolutely GORGEOUS! The staff exceeded my expectations in every way. They were responsive from beginning to end, and so helpful. I love that this venue offers a more comprehensive package where you receive a wedding coordinator and the catering. They also have decor there that you are able to use-which I did, it's beautiful!
My wedding coordinator was Krista and she was amazing! She made my dream wedding a reality. They do all the set-up and breakdown. You just bring your decor and whatever else you need the night before, and the team takes care of the rest.
My husband was most concerned about having delicious "non-wedding" food. The chef at Payne-Corley is wonderful. The food was spectacular! Even my picky foodie husband approved!
People are still commenting on how beautiful and wonderfully put together the wedding was, and it's all thanks to the Payne-Corley House staff. I couldn't recommend them more!

We had looked at other venues before choosing this one and they went above and beyond anything I could for. The food was amazing; we had wanted a pig roast and even though it wasn't anything they had served before they put together an estimate with options with out telling us no. We ended up going with roast pig and the chef worked with us to make sure the flavors/spices were what we wanted. They were very accomodating and knowledgeable. Our coordinator Jennifer was amazing and made our wedding day stress free. The location is beautiful and all of the staff is amazing.

I had my reception at this venue and it was absolutely amazing. I was an out of town bride, which made planning my wedding not as hands on. Payne Corley has a beautiful landscape (great for photos) and the inside is just as breath taking.
Krista (the owner) made the entire experience easy, seamless and exceeded my expectations. She is very detailed oriented and I was blown away how easy she made her job look.
The day of the reception, was such a whirlwind for me, and she kept me organized and focused and made sure I took in every moment. She served us champagne on our arrival, made sure we ate, and assisted us with the cake cutting (which can be nerve wracking).
The food was so delicious and all of my guests said that they have never had such amazing wedding food before.
The icing on the cake was as soon as myself and the groom arrived at our hotel room at the airport, she included a care package in our town car with a ton of food, cake, bottle waters and rose petals.
I am so happy that I chose this location and feel so lucky to have had my reception here!
I recommend this venue 100%!!!!

Payne Corley House is pure class all the way! A beautiful setting for a wedding. The owner is a chef, so the food is fantastic. As a booked wedding party, we were able to experience a strolling reception with varieties of options for our wedding. Getting a chance to try the different options was fun, exciting and gave us a flavor of the treat to come for our guests! Everything you need to plan your wedding is right there. It was the first time I have ever planned a wedding, and Payne Corley made if fool-proof! I got nothing but compliments on the beautiful setting for our wedding. I feel so lucky that we discovered Payne Corley house! I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding, or our choice of venue! I would recommend Payne Corley to anyone who wants a guaranteed classy and elegant wedding!

The staff at the Payne-Corley House truly helped me accomplish my dream wedding. I had a specific vintage/burlap look that I wanted for my wedding and they helped make that vision come true. I had handmade decorations that I wanted to use, but wasn't sure where to place them. The Payne-Corley House willingly set up everything for me. The house was set up just as I imagined it! I can not begin to express how amazing the staff is! Hope made us feel very welcome when considering the house and Stephanie was the best wedding coordinator! Stephanie made everything seem so easy and was there to answer every question we had. We also had an amazing bartender who calmed my nerves right before I took my wedding walk! I owe her! All of our guests, including my husband and I, loved the food. The ham and vanilla scented sweet potatoes were amazing but the cheese tortellini was the biggest hit! We owe so much to the Payne-Corley House and can not thank them enough for such an amazing wedding!

The Payne-Corley house is a wonderful venue for a wedding. I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Payne-Corley house in June 2013. The staff, Krista was my coordinator, made a huge part of the planning easy. She met with me multiple times before the wedding to plan the logistics for the day of. The ceremony and reception could not have gone any smoother thanks to her efforts. I did not have to worry about one thing after the rehearsal. The staff at the PC house made sure all the details were in place from the ceremony programs to the cake cutting knife to the toasting flutes. The venue is absolutely beautiful especially since they recently put in hardwood floors and expanded the bar. The food was amazing— I highly recommend the chicken pasta salad and bacon wrapped scallops. Overall I was more than pleased with everything the PC house did for us to make our wedding a day we will never forget.

The Payne Corley House was absolutely awesome!!!!! They make you feel like your wedding day is the most important thing they can imagine. Our coordinator they assigned to us was sooo helpful, I didn't have to worry about anything or lift a finger on my wedding day, she had everything already taken care of which was wonderful. The ceremony and reception went without a single hiccup, there is no way I could have done it without them. And the food, OHHH the food was great!!! Every single one of my guests told me how much they loved our food. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about them or anything that I thought could have been improved, they were GREAT!!!

We just got married at the Payne Corley house in May and everything was perfect! Hope did a great job answering all of our questions to make sure this venue was the right choice for us. They also assign you a wedding event coordinator, which is a great help. Ours was Stephanie Griffin and she was wonderful! We met with her twice prior to the wedding and also had many email contacts to make sure everything was planned out. Then on the day of she made sure we stuck to our schedule and made sure it all went off without a hitch!
Our ceremony was outside in front of the gazebo - and the aisle is brick which is nice for brides who want to wear heels! And my goodness the scenery around the house (and in it) for wedding pictures is absolutely gorgeous! The cocktail hour was outside and on the porch and our guests enjoyed drinks and passed hors d'oeurves. Then the reception was inside the beautiful home with newly renovated hardwood floors (which means the dance floor can be as big as you want - and we ended up using a lot of it!) We had buffet with food stations so there was plenty of variety and plenty to eat! We opted for the carved beef tenderloin and it was so delicious! Although we didn't get to eat much at the reception, they made a to-go bag with plenty of everything which we enjoyed later that evening. The whole night everyone commented on how lovely the venue was and how smoothly everything went. We couldn't be happier with our choice of venue!

We just got married at the Payne Corley house in May and everything was perfect! Hope did a great job answering all of our questions to make sure this venue was the right choice for us. They also assign you a wedding event coordinator, which is a great help. Ours was Stephanie Griffin and she was wonderful! We met with her twice prior to the wedding and also had many email contacts to make sure everything was planned out. Then on the day of she made sure we stuck to our schedule and made sure it all went off without a hitch!
Our ceremony was outside in front of the gazebo - and the aisle is brick which is nice for brides who want to wear heels!

My wedding at the Payne Corley House was flawless. The ceremony was planned for outside, but the day of the wedding there were flood watches. The guest who did not know it was scheduled to be outside all told me they thought it was planned for the inside because everything went so smoothly and looked perfect. They had recently installed hardwoods throughout the house that only enhanced the old southern charm of the house. The food was also exceptional. The chef is great. He met with us multiple times in order to get our menu just right. Krista is the owner and was also my wedding planner. She listened to everything we wanted and went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly the day of the wedding. Usually everyone has one thing that goes wrong on your wedding day, and I have to say I had 0 worries/problems. If you are looking for a venue with old southern charm and exceptional staff, I would recommend the Payne Corley House.

If you're looking for a wedding venue with stellar customer service, undeniable professionalism and a great quality of service, then The Payne Corley House is the place to be. I knew this is where I wanted to get married the day I stepped foot in the house. The venue is just gorgeous. The landscaping is just divine and the hardwood floors are beautiful. They really stayed true to the character of the home. My wedding coordinator was just great. She really took the time to understand my husband and I and what we wanted for our big day. Our guests are still talking about our wedding months later. Even some of my friends want to tie the knot there. I am just so pleased with The Payne Corley House. They really made my big day PERFECT.

Krista was so helpful with all the decisions I had to make and was always there to answer my questions. I had absolutely nothing to worry about the day of my wedding because she did such a wonderful job with all the little details! The food was absolutely delicious (I'm still receiving compliments about how great the food was) and everyone there went above and beyond to make sure my day was absolutely perfect.

I have nothing but glowing words to recommend Krista, Hope, Michael and the staff at PCH. My husband and I were looking for a venue that was non-traditional and wasn't like a big box like hotel ballrooms. At PCH we found a beautiful building, lovely verandas, a gorgeous gazebo, emerald green lawns to play cornhole and set up outdoor seating. PCH was right on board with our desire to have unassigned seating to allow people to flow and mingle and were able to provide everything we needed to achieve that. They were very accommodating to our unique decor and traditions and requests. Finally, when I asked Michael if he was sure his salmon wouldn't be like cardboard he reassured me that "I don't make bad food"!! Which was true! The food was fabulous and our large wedding with very hungry and thirsty people was satisfied with the quantity and quality. Krista was even kind enough to give my husband and me a going away picnic which served us well when we got to the hotel room and were starving.
I would absolutely tell friends ITP that going all the way out to Duluth is worth it in this case!
They've recently opened a lunchtime cafe on the property that we had a chance to enjoy as well.
Thanks PCH!

I cannot commend the Payne Corley house enough for the fantastic reception they put on for our wedding! We were impressed from the very beginning by all of the staff with whom we came in contact. We decided to book there because of the personalities of the people, the absolutely beautiful venue and the personal service we received. We had some pretty unique requests for our multicultural reception and the staff at PCH were more than happy to work with us to see our vision come to life. Our photographers described the day as "textbook awesome". We wanted a laid back but elegant affair and PCH was the perfect place to facilitate our families mingling and having fun. I was struck by the customer service throughout the process and the best part was the thoughtful owner Krista who sent us off with a bag of goodies!

What can I say that has not already been said? They are the absolute best. Everything was perfect in every way. I come from a family of picky Italians and they loved everything. They are a hard group to please and I hear everyday how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The food was just incredible from beginning to end. The venue was beautiful and the way they flipped our room was amazing. It rained so we had to move the ceremony inside but it was perfect. Hope, Michael and Krista are so easy to work with and always so kind and patient. We loved everything!

We had our wedding reception at the Payne-Corley House, and it provided the perfect setting for our big day! We had such a fun wedding! We had about 125 guests, and we all fit in the main ballroom (which we wanted to do, so nobody felt excluded). The staff there is great. Jen was our coordinator, and she was fantastic to work with! She thought of everything, down to the little details! Also, the food was AWESOME. It was one of the main reasons we decided to go with the Payne-Corley. I highly recommend the Payne-Corley!

There are many wedding venues in Atlanta, but if you want one that will make your bride and groom's dreams come true, chose the Payne Corley House!!
All of our guests, without fail, called the wedding and reception "magical....like a fairy tale". Krista, both owner along with husband Mike, and our coordinator was terrific. When she said to bring anything that needed to be placed or attended to to the rehearsal, she wasn't kidding. Perfection! I didn't have to worry about a thing at the wedding.
The beauty of the Payne Corley, along with the talents of my florist, Lily of the Valley, combined to make it a breathtaking wedding and reception. That were no lulls for my guests, as their efficient and friendly staff did an amazing job of serving our seated buffet in record time WITH A SMILE!! Then there was the food. Absolutely delicious. Catering for both the reception and rehearsal was provided by Krista's husband Mike. Our rehearsal dinner was conveniently located right down the street at Mike's restaurant "The Park Cafe" and was equally as wonderful. He and his staff did an outstanding job of preparing and serving our dinners. The presentation was exquisite!
Last but not least, the reception. My fear was that the reception would be boring for our guests. But, again, thanks to the Payne Corley, and our wonderful DJ, Rich from Black Tie Events, all of our guests had a fantastic time and no one wanted the night to end.
All in all it was a night I know none of us will ever forget. It was a story book wedding with my beautiful daughter as the princess, and her handsome groom as the prince. I would not have changed a thing. My heart felt thanks to the Payne Corley staff and everyone who made this event as wonderful as it could possibly be.

I am so happy that I decided to have my ceremony and reception at the Payne-Corley House. It was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made! I really wanted some place that had a great outdoor space for my ceremony and then a great indoor/outdoor space for the reception, and Payne-Corley House was a perfect match! It was great working with Hope to secure the venue and working with Krista for all the planning. They were flexible with our ideas and different things we wanted at our wedding. Everything that day went off without a hitch! The venue looked incredible, there was plenty of staff ready to help you with whatever you needed, and the food! Everyone loved the food! Especially the shrimp and grits bar, we decided to go with that and it was a major hit at our wedding! We also chose to go with vendors that the Payne-Corley House recommended and I think that made the whole process a lot smoother, and we loved all of our vendors! Abby's Floral Designs, Black Tie Events (DJ), For Goodness Cakes, and Art Star Photography were all excellent. All my guests loved the wedding and had a really great time. I loved that it was a family owned establishment instead of a company. That personal family feeling working with the Payne-Corley House employees was ultimately the deciding factor on choosing them for our wedding! (And the excellent price!) I would recommend the Payne-Corley House to everyone!

The Payne-Corley House hosted my daughters, Jessica, August 3rd, 2012 wedding. They were very accomodating and personal. Everything was great! The food was excellent and everything was enjoyed by all. Excellent venue. Krista, Hope and Robin worked with us during the planning process. They always followed up with questions we may have had. They even allowed us to arrive early to get things in order (an event was not planned prior to ours). It was just awesome! Thanks so much!

WOW. Where do I start? If you're looking for a venue for your special day that will take care of everything for you, then The Payne Corley house is the venue for you! From the day we stepped foot in PCH, Hope & Krista took such wonderful care of us and made the entire planning process easy, understandable, and simplified the billing as well. I'm not sure about you, but I am not a wedding expert, and I was somewhat clueless throughout the planning period. PCH picked up my slack and made it a smooth transition the whole way through.

When we arrived to the venue on the wedding day, we barely had anything to do in preparation. All that we had to do was get dressed! They take care of decor, setup, catering, brought us refreshments while we were in the Bridal Suite, and took care of the guys out in the Groom's house, too. Our guests were so impressed by the beauty of the grounds & the house. The reception was a hit, and we spent the whole night dancing and having a blast.

When my husband and I arrived home, we were both starving (you barely have time to eat that night from all the hugging/greeting/dancing) and PCH had packed us to-go boxes full of the leftovers from the reception. This, along with the beautiful lace napkins they gave us as a wedding gift, were such thoughtful touches on top of everything else they did to make our special day perfect.

I recommend ALL brides look into booking here - you won't be disappointed! Thanks so much Payne Corley House!

My wedding day was absolutley perfect. Nothing went wrong and all of the trusted vendors they reccomended were a pleasure to work with. I could not speak more highly of The Payne Corley House. Krista and Hope met all of my expectations. Our special day was amazing for both my husband and I. Black tie events is also another company that is great!!! The food was amazing.

Our wedding day at the Payne Corley House was everything we had dreamed it would be and more ! We could not have asked for more friendly or accomadating staff throughout the wedding planning journey and the day of was a breeze! As the bride, I was able to relax, and concentrate on walking down the aisle, not worry about last minute details or things going wrong! I can not thank the family @ the Payne Corley House enough for their support and making our day so special and one we will never forget!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Payne Corley House. It was a perfect Spring day and everything turned out perfect. The grounds are beautiful outside and inside. The staff was amazing and everything was set up exactly how I wanted it to be. The food was amazing and we had so many compliments from our guests regarding the food and the venue itself. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone and would use it again in the future!

Very professional staff, amazing food, beautiful venue, what more can you ask for? After an exhausting search for a venue that would also serve as a reception area, I knew as soon as I drove into Payne-Corley that this was the place. The other exceptional service was a plus. Hope and Krista went above and beyond to meet any of my needs. The food was exquisite. The only bad thing I can say is, I can’t get married again to experience the magnificent night that the Payne-Corley put together for me.

The Payne-Corley House was everything that I could have ever hoped for in a wedding venue and then some. Every moment of our planning process was not only easy but a lot of fun. Krista was our coordinator and she definitely knows what she is doing. We dropped our things off the night before the wedding when we had the rehearsal and it was all in place when we arrived on the day of the wedding. She made sure that everyone knew what to do, where to be and when to be there. I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding about everything andI really can't take credit of much of it. It was all because of Krista and her crew. They were very accommodating to us, our bridal party and all of our guests. We had a photo booth that we were able to have inside; the set-up was perfect. The food and drinks were delicious and plentiful being served by the fantastic waitstaff and the great bartender. My husband and I were able to have some time to ourselves to eat, I never realized how difficult it would be to steal a few minutes away on our own to eat but they made sure that we did. The venue itself is beautiful, our ceremony was held outside in the gazebo. Dinner was inside and our guests had access to the lovely patio area to mingle. My huband and I did not have to take worry about a thing, everything was perfect. I would not change anything. My only complaint is that the night eventually had to come to an end!

Our daughter was married here back in March. I, as a mother, could not have been happier with the final event. Our duaghter lives 2+ hours away and has a bustling, demanding career. That means we needed a venue and staff who worked with both of us equally since she had very little time to be here in person to make decisions. Everyone here made each of us feel special and unique. There was no question or concern too little to discuss with them. Our daughter chose to have the "strolling reception" and we can't imagine any wedding not doing the same !!! She knew she wanted an intimate special ceremony outside and wanted the fun and food to begin quickly after. That is exactly the way it happened. The food was so delicious that people still comment to both of us how delicious and unique it was. Michael walked her through every food choice (and she was way too picky). He kept recreating the menu until she was thrilled and never rushed her or made her feel "a bother". The flowers and the cake were BOTH over the top in beauty and taste!! Since that time we have been fortunate enough to attend 3 weddings in 3 different "venues" in the Atlanta area. They were not even CLOSE in comparison to hers. My husband kept whispering to me, " I am so glad we didn't choose this place" We belive that once you experience the "BEST"---all the others PALE in what they offer. Quality---Responsiveness--Professionalism---Value---Flexability------and so much MORE are all wrapped in a beautiful bow at the Payne Corley House.

We hosted our wedding reception at the Payne-Corley House two years ago, and loved ones STILL rave about how stunning the setting was and how truly amazing the food was. I look back on our planning experience, and I had zero (absolutely zero) stress because Krista and Michael put our minds at total ease with their professionalism, talent, and commitment to catering to our vision. (They offered us more ideas to make our day our own than we ever had at the beginning!) At the beginning of wedding planning, I wanted to hire a wedding planner, but I soon saw how detail oriented Krista was, and I saved the money. She was always gently reminding me of a vendor I still needed (a photographer -- ooops!), and if/when I didn't know where to turn, she had the highest quality suggestions.

The day of our wedding, the entire reception experience was effortless. In her kind, unassuming way, Krista guided us through the entire evening without ever being "pushy." Stresses that could have freaked a bride out? People who didn't RSVP showed up; a family friend had a health scare and needed an ambulance! I didn't know a thing because Krista took care of every issue, never worrying me for a second.

In business, I have attended or hosted dozens of events over the years, and I have ever witnessed an executive chef with Michael's attention to quality. He went out of his way to perfect a hand-crafted, classic cocktail for us. He learned how to make it, how to make it in bulk (while still ensuring quality!), and carefully teaching his staff how to prepare and serve it with speed. Michael personally prepared and approved each plate that left his kitchen.

I wouldn't change one decision about our wedding day. Outside of our church's spiritual service to us, the entire Payne-Corley experience was the best decision we made regarding our wedding. My husband and I often joke about crashing a PC wedding one of these days...the food and service would be sure to impress!

We had a BEAUTIFUL wedding at the Payne-Corley house! The venue is phenomenal and we had guests complimenting us on our choice. We would definitely choose this one again. The staff is excellent and extremely accomodating. The food is 5-star. We were able to decide with about 2-hours notice whether we wanted to do it inside or out (we chose outside even though we'd been thinking it would have to be inside because it was cool) and the staff were more than willing to do whatever we wanted. They even moved some of our "inside" flower arrangements outside on pillars that made the gazebo beautiful. I highly recommend their preferred vendors as well. Janet Hall, our coordinator, was wonderful to work with and everything went off without a hitch. The only thing worth a comment is that they did change one side dish of our strolling reception that we weren't made aware of, but all the food was so good, it really didn't matter. The tasting prior to the wedding was a nice touch as well. Thanks, P-C staff for all your work--our day was perfect!

Payne-Corley House was one of the first venues that I visited in my search for the perfect setting for our wedding. Ultimately, I called and visited at least a dozen other venues and PCH set the standard high and no other venue to was able match their warmth, beauty, services, and value. Hope and Chef Michael worked with us to create the menu of my dreams. The entire staff is warm, welcoming and was always willing to bend over backwards for us during every step of the process. Their vendor recommendations were spot on for me, my tastes, and my budget. Our event specialist, Lori-Ann, felt like more of a dear friend than an event coordinator. On the day of my wedding, I was able to relax, enjoy, and know that every detail was being attended to by PCH's amazing staff.

I admit that I was a very high maintenance bride with a lot of out-of-the-ordinary requests and unique desires. Hope, Krista, Chef Michael, and Lori-Ann all handled me with care (when needed) and went above and beyond to make my expectations become reality. It's been over 2 months since the wedding and people are still talking about the exquisite beauty, food, and service at Payne-Corley House!

The Payne Corley was the most wonderful venue we looked at, and now that we've gotten married, it's the only one I would recommend. The staff there are wonderful to work with...they are incredibly accommodating and do everything the can to please and work with you. You get personalized meetings with your wedding coordinator who helps plan every detail. They also have tasting events throughout the year, so we were able to request the foods we wanted...and everything was delicious! The main room of the House is gorgeous, with beautiful round tables and candelabras. There's a beautiful fireplace and small alcove for your band/cake display. There are also several other rooms, including a porch, so there are many place for people the mingle...in other words, can easily accommodate a large group. The day of the wedding, we had a waitress who was assigned just to us, which was a lifesaver! She went and got us food and drinks, and did the same for my bridal party and family as well. At the end of the night, they also give the B&G a to-go box of leftovers **Note here: Unless the B&G are starving, I would give this to-go box to a family member if there's going to be a large crowd hanging out somewhere, because they gave us everything leftover! We had to leave it all, uneaten, at the hotel. I can't say enough good things about how beautiful it was on our big day, how polite, welcoming, and warm the staff was, or about how people have said it was the prettiest venue they've seen in a long time. I would highly highly recommend using the PC House!!

I cannot say enough good things about the Payne Corley House and its staff. This was the absolute perfect place for our wedding, and I am 100% positive that I would not have been happier at any other venue.
The house and grounds itself is amazing, but what really topped it off was the wonderful staff. Every one of my requests was accommodated without hesitation. The wedding day flowed more smoothly that I could have ever imagined. I worked with my coordinator closely in the weeks before the wedding to let her know the certain details that would need to be taken care of on the day of the wedding. There was not one detail that was overlooked. And even things that I had not thought of were taken care of. I truly did not have a care in the world on my wedding day. It was more that perfect.

We are so glad we had our wedding at the Payne-Corley House. The ceremony outside in front of the gazebo was beautiful with all the fall colors surrounding us. The reception was spectacular as well inside the main house. Everyone loved the delicious food and we even got to enjoy our own dinner afterwards with our to-go boxes. I wouldn't change our venue for anything in the world!

The Payne Corley House is an amazing venue!! From the staff to the food to the atmosphere the venue gives off, I could not have asked for a more perfect evening. From the first moment I walked in, I knew this is where I wanted my wedding to take place. You get a wedding coordinator when you book the venue to help you out and they will do absolutely anything that you want to do (as long as it is legal :-p). We had our ceremony outside at the beautiful pavilion and our reception was originally planned to take place outside the beautiful house that was built back in 1873, but when the weather started turning cold we changed our plans (the week before the wedding) and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The food is absolutely amazing as well!! They have their own personal chef who creates all their meals and it is unbeatable.

The one thing my husband asked for when we were planning our wedding is for a live band at the reception. I was extremely skeptical about the whole idea but we did the research and we found Band of Gold. I never would have thought that having a live band at our wedding would make that night so much fun for all of our guests. Their playlist is extensive, they sound great, and they really get into the music and get the guests out and dancing. Kris Bayne is in charge of the band and I highly recommend talking to him!! Payne Corley had no problems accomodating out band. His wife, Terrilyn, is in charge of Orpheus and Aphrodite Photography. She took all of our professional pictures and they are breath-taking. All brides want to not only look beautiful on their wedding day, but want to have gorgeous pics to remind them of that day in years to come. Terrilyn did not disappoint. Her pictures are better than anything I could have imagined!!

My daughter's priority was a beautiful site for her outdoor wedding. Many venues we visited had gorgeous areas, they just felt very cramped. The P-C House has a lovely gazebo surrounded by trees and a rolling lawn in front of the house. It has a picturesque tree with many branches perfect for fun, romantic photos. And of course there are their signature RR tracks. Lori-Ann helped us with our contract and she was wonderful. When told she would not be coordinating our wedding we were sad, but then we met Krista. She marshaled groundsmen, waiters, chefs and produced the perfect wedding for my daughter and son-in-law. The outdoor ceremony site was magical with fairy lights. The indoor ballroom breathtaking with plenty of room for our band and dancing for 130 guests. The food was scrumptious. The wait-staff efficient and attentive. Even after 3 months our family and friends reminisce about the wedding declaring it was the best they've attended. Most of the credit goes to Krista and the staff of the P-C House.

What can I say about the fairytale wedding that we had at the Payne Corley House. From the first moment that I spoke to Hope, till we were given Janet, the most wonderful wedding coordinator there has ever been, to the start of the day, from the STAFF: AMAZING, FOOD: TO DIE FOR, thank you Michael! Janet took care of the kids from the moment they arrived, till shipping them off with more food than they could have ate in a week! None of us can even get back to work. Too busy talking about the amazing day!!!! I can tell you that it was more than Samantha and Matthew could have ever dreamed of. They say pictures say a thousand words, so all you have to do is look at their faces!!! Thank you Buysman Photography for unbelievable wedding photo's! Thank you Charles (Black Tie) the best DJ ever! Celso's Cake: outstanding! And the most beautiful flowers in the world, thank you Shirley and Frances: Country Designs, and making the bride so beautiful: Jennifer, Formal Faces, the best!!! We love you Janet, Hope, Payne Corley House, we will never forget the amazing day!!!! Thank you from the Mother of the Bride

A review from the Bride: I can honestly say that my wedding day was the best day of my life. I had THE BEST TIME. I got married at the Payne-Corley House on August 12, 2011 and if I could do it all over I truly wouldn't change a thing. Janet was my wedding coordinator who truly went above and beyone to provide for my needs. She became like a second mom to me during the wedding. The weeks following up to to the wedding, I thought of a few questions I had early one sunday morning. I sent her text and she was so quick to respond. If there was something she wasn't sure of, she'd be quick to find out and let me know. THe owners/chef of Payne-Corley House, as well as Hope were also so awesome. They were so so flexible with us. Becuase of the hot weather, we decided to have the ceremony inside and then have the room re-arranged for the ceremony, and the way it worked out, one would think we got married in two seperate rooms. It was so perfect. When I was in the bridal room with my bridesmaids waiting for the ceremony to begin, there were things that I thought of that I needed from my dad, or others downstairs, but I didn't want myself or my bridesmaids to be seen by anyone before the wedding began, and Janet was so quick to do whatever I needed, or go grab a faimly member or friend that we wanted to come up to the bridemaids room. You also hear of people who say they didn't even get to eat at their wedding, and although my husband and I have no idea what the food layout looked like (because Janet got our plates for us!) we both got FULL from the AMAZING food. Not to mention we got to eat THE LEFTOVERS THEY PACKED US along with wedding cake and room service coffee in our suite at the hotel we stayed at (St. Regis, which was also AMAZING) at 3:00 am. I could seriously keep going on and on about the Payne-corley house. AND THE STAFF/servers! They were so so kind!! No kidding! If you are looking for a classy, intimate, beautiful venue, then go with the p-c house! It is so so sosososososoo worth it!!

The PC House came very highly recommended, and now I know why. Krista and the rest of the staff are so friendly, flexible, accomodating, and helpful from the moment the planning starts until even AFTER the reception ends. Every one of our guests raved about the food and the service, plus the beauty of the venue is unmatched. We felt like VIPs, but we also know our guests felt the same way.

The Payne-Corely House was everything we could have asked for on our wedding day and more! They made sure our day was perfect and just the way we wanted it. If I had to do my wedding over, I would not change a thing! The food was FABULOUS, the reception was loads of fun, and every person working the event was friendly and willing to do anything you ask. Krista and the rest of the staff were such a pleasure to work with. I absolutely LOVE the Payne-Corely house and would recommend this venue to anyone who asks.

We selected the all inclusive package since both my husband and I work. The all inclusive package included many of the services and details that would be the bride and groom responsibility and all the Payne-Corley House vendors were top of the line. we selected a buffet and the food was not the typical wedding menu. The food was 4-5 star quality restaurant food and of exceptional quality. The staff was easy to work with and extremely professional. We priced facilities on the internet before visiting the venues and the Payne Corley House was very competitively prices. It was the first and only venue visited and we booked two days after our visit. Another unique feature is a tasting event where we could sample many items from the menus and make our selection of the wedding dinner easier. Everything was outstanding and all my guests thought the food was fantastic and that it was the best wedding ever. My thanks to Krista and Michael and their staff for an unforgetable wedding.

I can't even begin to express the gratitude I feel toward the staff at the Payne-Corley House. Our wedding day was PERFECT! The planning experience kept me from having any "bridezilla" moments because our coordinator was so thorough and delightful to work with. I have already recommended this stunning place to co-workers and friends, so I wanted to let anyone else looking for a venue know about it. Definitely check out Payne-Corley for a wonderful, beautiful, and affordable wedding.

The staff at the Payne-Corley House did everything to make my day go smoothly and stress-free. From the moment I got there everything was always under control. I was able to enjoy the entire night without a single thing going wrong. We even had a personal butler who went and got us something to drink whenever we wanted something. My friends and family raved about the food and how beautiful the house is. I would not change a single thing about my wedding and none of it would have been possible if it weren't for Lori-Ann and the Payne Corley House staff.

When deciding on a venue for our wedding & reception, we had 3 requirements: capable of hosting wedding & reception; an outdoor area for the ceremony; & working within our budget. At Payne-Corley House, located in downtown Duluth, the sales process was expertly handled by Hope Follmer. She met with us at a convenient time, showed us the facility, discussed fees, provided a preferred vendors list, & provided an estimate in 2 days. When we weren’t sure of items or were comparing Payne-Corley House with other venues, Hope was available to answer our questions. After visiting 4 venues, we chose Payne-Corley House based on the beautiful facility & grounds & price. Although we made the selection at the end of winter, we hoped the spring blooms & greenery would come to life as we saw in sales photos. Little did we realize at the time just how beautiful the facility would be indoors for the reception & at the gazebo for the ceremony. Krista Ganley, a co-owner, served as our wedding coordinator. She spent the necessary time discussing our desires to ensure she understood both the specific details and the atmosphere we wanted to achieve. When we weren’t sure of a selection, Krista guided us through options & steered us in the right direction. Even before the big day, we felt secure in our choices & felt confident that everything would go smoothly.
On the wedding day, Krista & the Payne-Corley House staff were very attentive to our needs & comfort & maintained the schedule of events. Although nervous, it was very comforting to hear from family & wedding guests how beautiful things looked & how seamlessly the day went. We received many compliments on the beauty of the facility, the wonderful food, & how well the whole day perfectly matched our personalities. Now, thinking back since the wedding & looking at our wedding photos, I think the biggest compliment I can give is I wouldn’t have changed a thing & Payne-Corley House delivered a day almost as beautiful as my bride.

We are very happy we chose The Payne Corley House for our ceremony and reception. This is a venue that truly offers something for everyone. I'm was not a very traditional bride in terms of wanting to oversee tons of details or bring in a million Pinterest projects, and I felt that the staff at Payne Corley understood that not every bride fits the same mold. I have family members who work in the restaurant industry, so food was important to us - and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious!! Simply writing this review leaves me craving a mac and cheese martini.

From the moment my husband and I visited the PCH to the moment we left it on our wedding night, it was such a perfect place to host our reception. We are catholic, so our ceremony took place elsewhere, but Krista and the staff at the PCH were willing to change their usual event time schedule to accommodate our strict ceremony time. As the catering is done in house, very little coordination had to be done on my part aside from choosing from an amazing assortment of food. There are "tastings" twice a year that we took advantage of to help with the decision. I received so many compliments on the food during and after the wedding! Also, Krista made sure that my husband and I had time to eat and enjoy the food (even though were weren't hungry) before the crazy reception. My husband wanted a special kind of beer at the bar, and they made it available for us. I wanted lanterns hung in a very tall tree, and they offered to do that for us. I wanted to have a 7 piece band and they made sure to make seating arrangements so that everyone would fit quite comfortably.

If I have to think of ANY negatives, they would be: 1) The place is not super large. That was perfect for me (guest count 100 + 7 piece band), but, if you want a seat for everyone, I would estimate that 120 or so would be the maximum number of people to fit comfortably. 2) The dance floor isn't huge, but for our sized party, it made it seem more full, and we had a wonderful time! 3) While the staff was EXTREMELY helpful and flexible, getting in contact with them could sometimes be slow. By slow, I mean that it would take about a week to get an email response to a simple question. If it was important enough, I could have called and gotten an answer immediately, though; I just didn't always feel like calling was necessary. 4) It is right next to a train track, and the train passes somewhat frequently. It is strikingly loud when you are outside or when nothing is going on, but, honestly, we NEVER heard it once we were inside and the band was playing.

Other than those four very minor things, the venue is beautiful! I did most of my decor DIY, but not much was needed since the home was already so beautiful. The lawn and gazebo are perfect for pictures. We could not have chosen a better place for us. Southern, intimate, and elegant!

This was a great venue. Lori-Ann Walker and all the coordinators did a fantastic job with my wedding. The ceremony had to be moved inside at the last minute. The transition was quick and all the flowers and decorations were transferred inside. The food was incredible and the Beef Wellington was a hit as well as a few of their salads. The staff was very discrete and professional. I would recommend this venue and the services of all the staff as well. They definitely made the day go as smoothly as possible.

We loved our wedding at the Payne-Corley House. They did a great job of making the day run so smoothly. Krista, our wedding coordinator, was great. The food was awesome, the space was great (loved the hardwood floors and exterior). Our friends had a great time, and I think it was a great deal for what we paid. They even threw in these large sparklers for our send-off. (We had brought really small ones) All in all, we loved our wedding!

We had an incredible experience with the Payne-Corley House. From the initial tour of the property with Hope to meeting and working with the wedding coordinator that they provided, Jennifer Fulford, all of our needs, wants, concerns, ideas, etc. were answered. The Payne-Corley House and its team helped fulfill all of our hopes and made our dreams come true.

The food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the tasting event they do quartly featuring all their food. The facility was clean, the service prompt and helpful. The gazibo outside is beautiful during the day and lit with tiny lights at night. The house has so much character and charm.

If we had to do our wedding all over again, we would not change a thing about it especially the venue where we held our wedding, The Payne-Corley House. When we first got engaged, my fiancé and I started the large task of hunting down the perfect ceremony and reception site. We visited about five different venues that were all large white southern plantations, but none of the venues felt like the perfect place to hold our wedding until we arrived at The Payne-Corley house. From the first moment I stepped into the house, I knew it was the only place for us. I think I was even surer about it than my wedding dress!

I am so glad that I ended up choosing the Payne-Corley House. Krista and everyone on staff made my wedding unique and absolutely perfect. Krista was able to incorporate everything that I wanted for the wedding, from having our ceremony in front of the house to allowing hanging Chinese lanterns in the trees. Michael, her husband and chef, made a delicious dinner for all our guests, and I continue to get rave reviews about the food even now, two months after we have been married.

I chose to go with the “inclusive package” that included food and beverage, DJ, a cake designer, and florist, and I am so glad I did. It made the wedding process less stressful, and For Goodness Cakes, our cake baker, and Abby’s Floral Design, our florist, incorporated everything I wanted and exceeded my expectations!

I am extremely happy that I chose The Payne-Corley house for my wedding venue. I would recommend it to any future brides, because I had the most fabulous wedding I could ever imagine. I wish I could do it all over again!

The Payne-Corley House was the perfect venue to get married at! The details were easy and seamless, and the staff took almost all the wedding stress off of me. We got to select out options from all their delicious food, and really, Payne Corley did the rest! People commented regularly during my engagement on how carefree I was (a lot due to the amount of planning that Payne Corley took off my plate), and I’m still, three weeks after my wedding, getting endless comments on how beautiful my wedding was and how perfect the venue was. They were extremely responsive and took all my ideas and brought them to life! My day felt fun and special, and was exactly what I wanted and more, and I couldn’t have been happier with Payne Corley. Highly recommended!

The reception site was beautiful, but it was a little crazy trying to help them resolve some issues the day of the wedding. I gave them all the information they asked for so they could handle some small things they were supposed to handle and I ended up having to handle them during our reception. Other than that, food was great, venue was beautiful, and it was enough room for 100+ people. Only thing I found weird was they sent us with food to take with us and some of it wasn't even from our reception.
