The entire process was wonderful! The grounds are fabulous, and we loved getting married outside under the amazing saucer magnolia. Stephanie was helpful throughout the planning process, asking questions and making accommodations with ease. We were able to leave our homemade table centerpieces and other decorative items at the venue the day before, and the staff set everything up for us. The Payne-Corley House staff were all friendly and professional. We really appreciated being able to make a decision about the ceremony location almost up to the last minute; it was scattered showers and 50% chance of rain that day. Everyone at the reception loved the food, and the chef even prepared gluten-free plates for two of our guests. We enjoyed the placement of the bar in a nearby room, but out of the way of the main reception. The front and side porches both got used for cooling off and quieter chats during the dancing part of the evening. We have nothing but praise and thanks for everyone at Payne-Corley House; they made our evening as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.

It is very hard to know where to start in describing the fabulous way that our event was handled from the planning stage right on through the execution of the event!!! Hope Follmer did a wonderful job of getting the ball rolling. Krista did a superb job of seeing that every detail, every wish was granted. The kitchen staff/wait staff was excellent in preparing some of the best food we have ever eaten. EVERYTHING was top-notch! My husband told me that I had never pulled off a five-star event like this one before --- the venue, the food, the atmosphere --- it was not to be matched! We will definitely consider the Payne-Corley house for future celebratory occasions!

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!!

We fell in love with the location immediately when we went to their "Sip and See" open house on cold, bleak winter day. Despite the season and recent snowstorm, the outside of the Payne-Corley House was well-kept. The interior was exactly what we had imagined. The difficulty was deciding that we wanted to have our wedding here and the day. The rest of the process was very easy and smooth. Our interactions with the whole staff (Hope, Michael and Krista) did not at all add to the stress of wedding planning. The food was also a hit! The wedding dress got almost the same number of compliments as the Macaroni and Cheese Bar. From our initial discussions about menu ideas with Michael, to working out decoration details with Krista, and even last-minute changes, everyone at the Payne-Corley House were so flexible and responded so professionally that they added to the charm and beauty of the venue, and made our wedding day so memorable. We would certainly recommend them and recommend that people consider them and the location no matter where you live in Atlanta.

My husband and I are so happy we chose the Payne-Corley House for our wedding reception! We met with Hope while looking for a venue and she was very responsive, helpful, and kind the couple of times we met with her before making our final decision. She answered all of my questions and provided suggestions to help us envision our reception there. One of the things that set them apart from other venues we looked at was their flexibility. Since we had an afternoon Catholic Church ceremony, they allowed us to book the venue a little earlier in the evening. They were open to accommodating our requests and helping us with other vendors. We got the sense that they really wanted us to have a beautiful reception that we would look back on for many years with fond memories. Unlike other venues, they didn't seem like they were trying to nickel and dime us. Once we signed the contract, Krista helped us with the planning. She was great about pointing out details that we hand't thought about and answering all my questions. She was also very open about including some of our cultural traditions at the reception. When we dropped off our reception decorations, I included detailed instructions about how we wanted everything set up. She and her staff did a wonderful job! The food was absolutely delicious! Our guests loved everything from the hors d'oeuvres to the dessert. The staff that worked at our reception was very attentive and my husband and I were well taken care of throughout the night. The venue is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our wedding size!
