Events by Dezine exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend them. There was so much going on the day of the wedding, but I did not have to worry about a thing. The wedding planner was amazing - she made sure everything went smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. The catering director could not have been better. Everything was perfect and flowed smoothly. She took extra care to be sure that our family was well taken care of and lacking nothing in the way of food or drink! The bar tenders were wonderful and very friendly and gracious to everyone they served. They also came around to be sure we were taken care of throughout the reception. Being the mother of the bride I thought the evening would be a bit stressful, but I was able to totally enjoy myself and our guests without any stress on how things were going. Everything went off without a hitch thanks to Jennifer and her awesome staff! I can't thank them enough!!

We chose R Ranch in Dahlonega, Ga for our wedding venue and we couldn't be happier! Wendy at R Ranch took care of every detail that we could have needed and our wedding was perfect. The wedding site out on the hillside was so beautiful with the fall colors and the lodge was spectacular for the reception. We will never forget this beautiful day!

I knew I wanted to have a fall wedding in the Dahlonega mountains. My fiance and I toured many different locations including several beautiful wineries, but as soon as I walked into the R-Ranch, I knew I had found my dream location. It is such a picturesque location, and Wendy Wood was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had great flexibility there, which was important to me. I didn't have to use a specific caterer or DJ, and I was also able to purchase my own wine and beer. We got married on the hillside in a beautiful afternoon ceremony. The view was breathtaking. We held the reception inside at the Lodge and it was the perfect size for our crowd of about 150. The best thing about the Lodge is that it hardly needs any decoration as it's perfect all by itself. It also has one of the largest dance floors I saw in Dahlonega. I can't imagine my wedding anywhere else but the R-Ranch. And be sure to enlist Wendy for day-of coordination. She was INVALUABLE!!

The R Ranch is such a beautiful place. The staff were very helpful, but the response time for calls/emails could have been quicker. Also, a bride should never be told "I can't do this anymore" by staff...this made me very worried as this was on my wedding day! I wish they had more options for caterers due to the large fee you must pay to bring in an outside caterer. Overall, I had a wonderful wedding day! Thank you!

I found this venue randomly online. I saw the lodge and immediately fell in love with its elegance, rusticity, and natural beauty. Wendy Wood was great to work with! This venue is FANTASTIC for the price, from a 25 or 50 person event, all the way to 200+ event. The way the venue transforms if you want something modern, or if just left by itself, its BEAUTIFUL. The mountain views are PERFECT for pictures, and there are so many locations around the property that your photographer can work with. It's phenomenal. The ONLY thing i have to say about it was that if you bring in your own caterer, they have to be licensed and insured, and the ranch charges you an extra $5 PER PERSON overhead of your catering cost to basically penalize you for bringing in your own caterer. OR if you use their caterer, (which i've heard great things about) but you don't want to use their baker, you have to pay an extra $100 just to bring in your own cake.
Other than that, everything was amazing, and Wendy went above and beyond to make my day the most amazing day it could be.
I would also recommend getting one of the rental houses for the night before, and NOT letting 25 people come in it the day of. That was chaotic, but the cabin was beautiful, comfortable and rustic. :)

I know, how can a vendor or even a venue be this perfect? With this team, it is possible! Trust me when I say, if you want to have a completely stress-free, unbelievably beautiful and absolutely breathtaking wedding, Events by Dezine at R-Ranch in the Mountains delivers just that. Jennier Mineo at Events by Dezine truly enjoys her work, and it shows in the dedication she provides to her brides. We were taken care of from the first meeting we had with Jennifer, all the way until after our wedding, when she asked us for feedback. I can honestly say that I had the most perfect wedding day, and that includes all of the planning that went into it! Jennifer walked me through each task with precision and support, and I am eternally grateful for such attention to detail. Events by Dezine handled most of the items for our wedding, including the catering, which is the most delicious food you could ever hope to try! They made our cake also, and it was quite the masterpiece. If you are looking for a rustic but elegant venue, look not further than R-Ranch in Dahlonega. The grounds perfectly captured the vision that I had for my wedding, and my wedding pictures were just spectacular. Jennifer also recommended our photographer, Nina Sutherland, who was beyond magnificent. Our musician, Tim O'Donovan, was also booked through Jennifer, and he delivered the most outstanding vocals for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I had an absolutely perfect, fairy-tale wedding, and I owe it all to Events by Dezine and R-Ranch in the Mountains. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and it's commitment to excellence! Book them today for your dream wedding, you will not be disappointed!

My overall experience with R-ranch was very positive. Wendy Wood, the wedding coordinator, did an outstanding job working with me throughout the entire process. She assisted and advised me in most every detail concerning the reception. She was very patient, courteous, and helpful with planning my daughters wedding reception at R-ranch. She also was behind the scenes seeing about small details that my husband and I were not aware of during the reception. I enjoyed working with Ms. Wood, and would encourage my friends to use R-ranch as their wedding reception venue.
My only negative feedback would be the overall cost of renting, it ended up being more than we anticipated. The facility coordination fee we felt was rather high, but the rental fee was decent.
I would highly recommend using R-ranch for any event because of my personal experience with those I worked with, mainly Ms. Wood!

My daughter knew she wanted to get married at the R-ranch the day she became engaged! She and I contacted Wendy Wood who coordinates the wedding and we met with her within a couple days at our convenience. I have to say I was extremely pleased with the service Wendy provided us. She was always prompt in returning my calls and very flexible, making arrangements to have the site available to us for hours well beyond normal business time. The wedding was spectacular! The ceremony was held at 6 PM on the hillside with the sun off to the side and out of everyone's eyes. The hills surrounded us and were filled with several shades of green. The reception hall in the lodge is surrounded by tall windows that looked out onto the mountains and we were given a view of an exquisite sunset! I want to commend Wendy and her staff on their exemplary job! Well done!!
