Vecoma has been a great wedding facility to work with. They have been there to answer all questions that me and my fiancé have had to this point. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Vecoma has been very accommodating and flexible. We couldn't have picked a better venue to host our wedding as we anxiously await our special day.

Savannah and Caroline were awesome, so were the whole staff. My family can get pretty rowdy and they wrangled them in like a champ. Where we were all over the place they kept us together and running, somewhat, on schedule. I couldn't have asked for more! They enabled me to truely enjoy my wedding instead of stressing out about everything. Thank you so much!!

In this day and age where people just do not seem to meet even the basic of your expectations, it was such a pleasure to have found Vecoma and a business which gives and gives and gives.

When my husband and I (well, when I) decided to have a memorable ceremony to renew our marriage vows, we decided to do this in Atlanta for several reasons: it was centrally located and there is a big airport with lots of hotels. I researched the Internet and found several places and made appointments. I was so impressed with this facility and the wonderful ladies who own/run it. It is impossible to overrate how fabulous this who day turned out for us.

Vecoma is just a magical place to create memories. I will always treasure this day. Amazingly, there was no rain and everything ran smoothly (arrangements had been made in the event there was rain). I had Caroline as our photographer and all the photographs are stunning. I even felt like I looked good, which is unusual.

After interviewing three venues in Atlanta, I chose Vecoma because they, frankly, were the best deal along with having the most beautiful location. The DJ was fantastic and we all danced like fools. You would have thought it was a wedding and not a ceremony for a bunch of old people!!!! The food was delicious and the decor is just elegant and beautiful.

The nicest thing, however, is that you can tell that the staff really care that you have a wonderful day and they make you feel very at ease, depending on them rather than worrying about every detail yourself. I am so happy I took them up on several suggestions. Thank you, Caroline and Judith -- and all the Vecoma staff -- for making this a special day for us and our guests.

We were blessed with a beautiful day and were able to have my daughters wedding outside. It was so beautiful!! Kirk and the staff were amazing he had a staff member bring the bride an groom water down during pictures what a blessing it was. As Kirk and Deloris prepared and setup along with staff and my coordinator I have to tell you it couldn't have flowed any smoother. Caroline and Savannah were wonderful and there to answer any questions. I also love the fact that it is kinda secluded down its own little street so the only traffic is your party.

Wow! If I could give higher than a 5 rating, I definitely would. First I would like to comment on a review by "Sasha" who is not even a bride. Truly amazing that someone will trash their own friend's wedding. Well, friend is said lightly here because most friends want to focus on the positive and would never criticIze a place chosen by someone else. I hope that bride ditches this "friend" for trying to ruin her memories of her wedding. I would. Sasha is also blaming Vecoma because her "friend's" wedding coordinator did not show up. Well, as part of my package, I could pay for whatever I wanted and I have high doubts that, at the last minute, a busy facility like this could even get help that had not been planned on. That, my dear Sasha, is why you PLAN weddings in advance. Sasha sounds like a jealous person who is unhappy because she was not the bride.

I had the wedding I had always dreamed of at Vecoma. It is just a lovely, classy place and I was helped every step of the way by the kind and thoughtful people at Vecoma who assured me many times that their goal was to see that my wedding was everything I wanted. (Not what my friends might want, I might add.). The pictures are exactly like Vecoma looks and my wedding photos are to die for. I have two friends who have already called Vecoma to schedule their weddings.

Please forgive me for being so furious about a non-bride trying to trash this place where I had my wedding and where I was 100 percent happy and catered to every step of the way. Yes, I did pay for a set amount of time but I could have paid for double of I felt I would have needed it and it would still have been a reasonable amount. The prices are believable for such an elegant place and, believe me, I called all of them.

I booked Vecoma as my venue because of the price, the staff, and the venue itself. I had looked through hundreds of websites, and visited several other venues which all failed to catch my eye. As soon as I met with Vecoma the first time, I booked that afternoon and could not be happier. Throughout the entire process, the staff was accommodating and kept me updated. When it came time for the big day, Caroline (the owner and one of the wedding coordinators) was fabulous! She kept things running smoothly and made my wedding even better than I had dreamed of. The ceremony was stunning, with the trees blooming and how perfectly the sun crept over the trees. I was very worried it would be a hot wedding (July 3rd at 7 in the evening) but the ceremony was shaded by the trees making it incredibly comfortable.

My guests have raved since the wedding about how beautiful the venue was. Everything from the grounds to the food was incredible. If you are looking for an amazing value without having to sacrifice service, then Vecoma is the perfect venue!

Vecoma was a beautiful venue for our daughter's wedding. All of the staff were helpful, patient, and courteous. Since this was our first wedding, their expertise was very beneficial and helped make the wedding day go smoothly. All of our guests enjoyed the food as well as the ambience of the venue. We would definitely recommend Vecoma at Yellow River as a venue for a wedding.

Vecoma was the PERFECT place for my wedding. I only looked at one venue, and was so impressed I stopped right there. They make it very easy to plan your wedding because they offer catering, DJ services, and Photography all on site, so less work to find vendors. My ceremony was held outdoors with the beautiful river running right behind it. Caroline did a great job on photography and was pleasant to work with. The food was excellent- I did the Italian Buffet- and everyone loved it. They coordinate everything so you do not have to worry. Best of all, the value is simply amazing and affordable. Thank you Vecoma for making my day so special!

Vecoma was the perfect venue for our wedding and reception. We were able to plan the outdoor ceremony and indoor reception that we had imagined. Working with Vecoma's staff was a breeze. Unfortunately, the rain robbed us of a ceremony by the river, but our day was still spectacular. Vecoma had our chairs set up for a deck ceremony and then seamlessly flipped the room to flow right into our reception. Overall, I would recommend them again and again. Thank you, Vecoma!

I had my wedding reception at Vecoma in November of 2013. Everything was perfect on my wedding day. The staff at Vecoma are very pleasant and go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect for your big day. The Food was AMAZING! All my guests agreed it was some of the best food they ever have had at a wedding. I had the BBQ dinner and Vecoma let me switch some things around and customize the menu to my taste. Vecoma really made my day very special and worry free. They also were very flexible with letting us come early and set up are own decorations and allowed us to take picture there before the wedding so I could have daylight because my wedding was at night. The best part is Vecoma is very affordable with a lot of bang for your buck. The venue is beautiful and feels very intimate. I HIGHLY recommend Vecoma for your wedding or any kind of reception.

I wasn't the bride, however, I was a bridesmaid. This venue was really something special. My sister was the bride and her photographer pulled a no show! I couldn't believe it. Poor thing, she handled it like a champ though! Once informed of the dilemma, the venue quickly responded and grabbed their camera. They got some really cute poses and lots of great shots! The pictures couldn't have turned out better! I was so impressed at how they responded. They really made the situation a lot less stressful on her.

The overall look of the place was truly stunning. From the cake table(s) to the food display, it all came together beautifully.

My sisters wedding couldn't have turned out better. It was simply beautiful, and she looked like an angel!

I cant believe how amazing this venue was for the price! The location was perfect for our outdoor wedding and the professionalism was impeccable. Vecoma at the Yellow river is the best bang for your buck. they understand that planning a wedding is expensive, but that doesn't have to sacrifice quality. The flowing river behind us as we said our vows was like something out of a fairy tale. The reception was beautiful too. I thought I was going to be so stressed before, but vecoma made it easy on me and the entire party. thank you!!

Our wedding day was perfect! My husband and I (plus some awesome friends & family) planned it without the use of a wedding planner. The whole process was simplified by having it at Vecoma at the Yellow River. We used Caroline for our photography and DJ Kirk handled the music for the service and reception. Both of them had a very professional approach and all the details were covered. And the Vecoma staff was very courteous and helpful before the event and on the day of the wedding. No question went unanswered and we always felt like we were special and that we were working with a vendor that really cared about pleasing us. From the first time we met with Caroline we knew this was the location we wanted to use. It was helpful that they provided a very useful list of suggested vendors to select from for other services too.

And Caroline handled her role as the photographer like a champ. She did her best to keep the wedding party on track to take photos and start the wedding on time. In the end, the photos were amazing!!! She captured so many shots I would have never have thought about. As the bride, the day was a blur to me, but the photos help to bring it all into perspective. We will treasure these memories always!

All-in-all this was one of the most beautiful days of our lives. Everything went better then we expected and we owe a lot of thanks to Caroline and everyone at Vecoma. If you want a stress free solution to planning a wedding, we definitely recommend Vecoma, the venue is gorgeous and they know their business! Thanks for everything, it was a pleasure having our wedding at Vecoma! :)

Our wedding was on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at the Vecoma at the Yellow River, in Snellville, Georgia. It was the best wedding venue ever, hands down! ….

My Dear Caroline, Ms. Judith, Savannah, and all the staff at Vecoma at the Yellow River; words cannot ever begin to express how much we appreciate all that you’ve done to make our special day absolutely AMAZING! From the beginning of planning our wedding to the wedding day, Caroline and her talented staff made our dream come true!

Vecoma is one of the best wedding venues in the state of Georgia! It is surrounded by beautiful wooded forest with a gently flowing river. It is a must see experience, the amazement of this beautiful location will have you in awe… Also, this outside scenery makes for some fabulous and stunning pictures.

The food was absolutely delicious! ALL of our guests are still commenting about how good the food was at our wedding. As the Bride, many people told me that I may not get a chance to eat at our wedding, but Vecoma’s Staff made sure that we ate our dinner! And Boy was it GOOD! The food, drinks, and venue services really, really was a GREAT value!

Lastly, I have tears of joy in my eyes as I write this sentence; My Dearest Caroline Tucker, you captured the most BEAUTIFUL PICTURES of our wedding! God has blessed you with an amazing gift… Photography and Personality is hard to find in many, however you have mastered it all. I am so very thankful for your patience, professionalism, and great personality. As the Bride, I am and will be forever grateful for you and all the hard work you did for us. You will always have a special place in our hearts!

Every wedding should be unique. This can easily be achieved at Vecoma. While the beauty and privacy of the venue speaks for itself, it is Caroline and her staff that made our daughter's wedding day special. From the initial meeting where Caroline asked our daughter what she envisioned for her special day, to the amazing day itself and every answered email and phone call in between, there was a genuine warmth and willingness to make this day everything our daughter wanted. Along with our family and friends we enjoyed a wonderful evening, a delicious meal with a bar and dancing by a DJ that kept things hopping. The entire staff was very personable and extremely efficient and we all look forward to Caroline's photos which we're sure will capture this perfect wedding beautifully.

I could not have been more happy with my daughter's wedding. The staff at the Vecoma made everything run so smoothly. I was able to relax and have a great time because they were so professional and did everything perfectly. The guests raved about the beauty of the venue, the delicious food, and the awesome DJ. Then when I got the photos that Caroline made, I was over the moon happy! Just gorgeous! In our family photo she got all3 of my sons and, and my husband who never smiles in photos, to smile. It is hands down the nest picture of our family that's ever been made.

The ladies at the Vecoma did a FABULOUS job! Our wedding was wonderful and everyone had a GREAT time. We were married Dec 1, 2012 at 6:30pm and we had about 140 guests for a sit down dinner, buffet style. We had the ceremony on the back veranda and the reception inside. My guests commented on how wonderful dinner was and how hospitable the staff was!

This is a beautiful place! The spring and summer is amazing with all the flowers and such blooming, but the winter creates a cozy and magical appearance with all the gorgeous landscape and Christmas lights! :-)

Caroline, the owner, did our engagement and wedding photography... BREATHTAKING! I have received so many wonderful compliments on my wedding album.

Kirk Moten, the DJ.... AWESOME!

I am the mother of the bride. My daughter was married yesterday at Vecoma. I cannot say enough about how perfect our day was. The venue was Beautiful!!!! Caroline was our photographer and we cannot wait to see the pictures as we looked at her work when we booked Vecoma. The food was delicious. Kirk the DJ was awesome and really kept me cool, calm and collected. In fact, my daughter just loved Kirk. He was so wonderful to work with. The staff at Vecoma was awesome. Delores and Rosie were so accomodating. There is a blonde hair lady that I cannot remember her name, but she was right in there with them.

And then there is Rhonda. Vecoma provided her as the wedding coordinator. She is the best. She did our rehearsal and then ran the wedding. She let everyone know when it was time for pictures, when to come out for the wedding, when to go during the procession, EVERYTHING. I had nothing to worry about. I truly enjoyed myself and did not have to do anything but be there and truly experience a beautiful wedding and reception.

The day was absolutely perfect and everyone was complimenting me on how beautiful the place was, how great the food was and what a great time they were having.

And finally to my precious Caroline!!!!! She is Vecoma. We had our meetings with her and she was always quick to respond to any questions my daughter and I had. Which brings me to her mother, Judith. She is quick to answer any emails too. That lady is well aware of everything that is going on.

Thank you Judith and Caroline. I am typing this with tears in my eyes as you gave my daughter the perfect day. There is nothing negative I can say about any of this. Ya'll are awesome.

So finally in closing, I highly recommend using Vecoma. It is beautiful, it is affordable, and you will not have any worries. This has been the best experience for me.

My daughter had her wedding there on October 20 and it was such a beautiful setting by the river, with great dining/setup options both indoors and outdoors on the large deck. Caroline guided us through from start to finish and worked with us on some unique ideas we had. I would highly recommend this venue as they were ALL wonderful to work with! Caroline was also our photographer and did and amazing job!!!

For outdoor or inside weddings, Vecoma is great. You can bring your own decorations which was a big plus for us. They also have decorations that you can add to your own or use instead. The staff is very helpful and took good care of the guests. Judith was very helpful and had lots of good advice!

Vecoma is truly a hidden gem. We were blessed to find such a beautiful place with an amazing staff for a great value! Judith, Caroline and staff were a joy to work with.
The food was delicious and my guest are still commenting on the food as well as how beautiful the venue was. A added treat was the beautiful pictures that Caroline took. It was great to have a photographer right there that really knew the venue and could bring photos to life! I am writing this review so that others can benefit from Vecoma. You will not be disappointed!

I would recommend The Vecoma for anyone who wants an outdoors wedding on the river. This location is absolutely beautiful! Their reception hall has these beautiful beams with lights and fabric draping through. It gives such a romantic vibe. When you first drive up it looks so welcoming and inviting. It is just absolutely beautiful! I would also recommend an indoor wedding in there reception hall, especially around Christmas!!! They have a huge outdoor deck that is great for the reception party to go in and out of the reception hall when they feel. The view is just beautiful! I would definitely recommend there photographer as well. Her photos are amazing, definitely the best I have seen! This venue has everything you would need. They have a cater they use, a dj, they have the photographer, props, and so on! It is just a wonderful place and very convenient!

If you want a beautiful wedding to remember, I would definitely go here!

I fell in love with having my wedding reception at Vecoma from the first time I visited. I didn't need to see anywhere else. It gave me the feeling I was looking for when chosing a location and it fit our budget well. The location itself is near Stone Mountain and other retail establishments but it is nestled in the woods and you can't hear or see another light or sound in the area - completely private for your group. I loved the indoor lighting and beautifual ceilings inside. The outdoor deck was fantastic for our guests to hang out if they weren't inside dancing at the reception but the open windows and doors made it so no one was ever disconnected from the indoor activities.

Our actual ceremony was at a nearby church so I can only speak of the reception and the reception prep. I can't say enough about the ladies who work there - Caroline and Kelley were awesome and Judith extremely helpful. I felt as if we were friends from the first day I was there - sharing Pinterest ideas and pictures! My questions via email were always answered promptly.

So glad we chose Vecoma to celebrate our wedding! I would highly recommend the location.

Our May wedding and reception at The Vecoma at the Yellow River turned out perfect. The staff was so helpful with every detail allowing for a less stressful wedding day! The grounds are very nice with the ceremony site outside just by the river. The food was very tasty. Caroline did an absolutely beautiful job with the photos. We used the house DJ Kirk and he did a great job. Everyone was up dancing! We are so glad we chose the Vecoma for our wedding venue. It couldn’t have turned out better! I would recommend the venue to anyone.

Vecoma was the best decision that we made for our wedding. Caroline and the entire Staff made the whole day stress free and easy. Everyone was so helpful and accomidating. They took care of every detail, and even remebered things that I did not. We used Kirk the house DJ and he was great. We also used Katrina the house florist and she did an amazing job. We used Caroline for the Photography, and can not wait to see what an amazing job she did. It was everything I could have hoped for and more.

To have everything all in one place and have the whole process from beginging to end mapped out on one sheet of paper was amazing. I did not have to worry about different companies and figuring out details with a whole bunch of people. The fact that all of the vendors have worked together for so long, everyone knew what they had to do and I was never needed for questions. I was able to focus on MY wedding day and spending time with my guests.

The food was great, and there was never a need of mine or any of my guests that was not met. I have and will continue to recommend Vecoma to anyone and everyone I can. What a magical expierence it all was.

If you are looking for a wedding venue that is both beautiful and affordable, Vecoma at the Yellow River is definitely that spot. Vecoma's staff is by far the best in the Atlanta area. Owners Caroline and Judith are both accommodating and easy to work with. They were more than happy to work with any requests that I had and were very good about responding to last minute requests.

Vecoma made my wedding dreams come true, delivering more than imagined! Both my husband and I are thrilled that we decided to begin the rest of our lives at Vecoma.

Thank You Vecoma.

My daughter Ashley got married on Oct. 23, 2011, and it was WONDERFUL. We couldn't have been more pleased. To start off the cake and flowers were late (almost had a breakdown!) and Caroline was right there assuring me that everything would be perfect. They got right in full swing to take care of things if they didn't show. Everything arrived and the day couldn't have been any better. The whole staff was there to help with every little detail and so polite. You couldn't find a place as great as Vecoma. I strongly urge people to use them. I have already told all my friends about it. The guests were very pleased also. The food was delicious and the way it was presented was beautiful. We had the DJ from Vecoma (Kirk) and we had a great time dancing. We also used Caroline for the photos and we can't wait to see them. If I could give them a 10 I would. I just can't say enough great things about them.

The venue is lovely, the food is great, the bartenders were awesome....everything was set up just like we wanted it to be when we got there that night. I would absolutely recommend Vecoma to anyone looking for a beautiful spot for a wedding reception. I should say that I was not the bride, but the bride's mother....

I thought I had already reviewed Vecoma at this site but I hadnt so thats why it has taken me so long to write this. I have to say that everything about my our wedding day was perfect and it was all thanks to the amazing staff at vecoma. I would recommend Vecoma to any bride that wants an affordable beautiful place to get married it is so private. The food is amazing the recommeded dj kirk went above and beyond to get everything perfect. The staff made the small amount of decorations (i was on a small budget) I had look great. The river is a wonderful backdrop for a ceremony. There is a cool outdoor fireplace to take pictures in front of and in case of bad weather there is a indoor fireplace you can get married in front of. Oh and the spacious bridal suite was so nice mostly cause there was room for all my family and friends to spend some time with me before the walk down the aisle. I would suggest any engaged couple looking for a venue make sure to check out vecoma I knew when i went there that it was perfect and i am sure you will too!

My best friend got married here, and I was very uptight going into the whole process. I wanted so badly for everything to be perfect. Her family was flying in from the other side of the country, it was her time to shine as the beautiful bride I knew she would be, and she had put the entire planning process solely on her own shoulders. She was frazzled, and I was worried.

But as soon as we got there, we were taken care of. The rehearsal process was easy, but detailed. We all knew where we needed to be and when. We felt relaxed going into the big day, and things were absolutely beautiful.

They take care of the ins and outs of your wedding with all your special touches. The menu was absolutely delicious, and we felt at home with the banquet hall all to ourselves. The wedding was in mid-July, outside, and the brief outdoor ceremony was met with a long, fun, air conditioned dance party for hours afterwards!

As a bridesmaid, the photography process wasn't drawn out or stressful. A fun break from all the primping and preparation! Caroline actually allowed us bridesmaids (all design students) to art direct some of the shots ourselves! The entire day's photography came out perfect, and Elizabeth couldn't have been happier.

Her family was pleased, all the visitors had a great time, and even after the sendoff, we were all very impressed by the lovely work done by the Vecoma family. You absolutely must see the venue to understand how lovely and secluded it is. Perfect!

Vecoma excelled in every way and met our high expectations of the perfect wedding ceremony and reception for our son and daughter-in-law. From our initial meeting through the planning process and final goodbyes the Staff were caring, alert, and open to our family making sure that June 2, 2011 was wonderful and memory filled. The Ceremony site just in front of the Yellow River was gorgeous and tranquil from the sound of rolling water over bedrocks to the rabbit strolling across the lawn. The Reception was equally amazing. The menu had many sumptuous choices, tasted perfect and was displayed with pride. Use Vecoma’s vender list! Vecoma’s DJ Kirk not only streamlined the handling of the planned activities, read our guests and provided fun for all, but also produced the DVD that truly captured the day to be enjoyed for years to come. The flowers (Katrina) were fresh, beautiful, and everything we asked for! Vecoma’s Caroline was our photographer who saw it all and provided a work of art not only with the final album but all the pictures which let us see what we didn’t see. We also used the Limo service recommended by Vecoma who arrived on time and helped bring to an end a totally wonderful day and experience. Check Vecoma out! We are sure you won’t be disappointed!

My daughter's wedding and reception was absolutely beautiful! We couldn't have asked for more. The staff went out of their way with any and all request that we had the day of the wedding. We had looked at all of the beautiful mansions in the area but decided for the money to go with Vecoma. I don't think that we could have picked a more perfect spot. Everything flowed so smoothly. It was nice with the hot weather that some of our elderly guest were able to watch the ceremony up on the deck without having to sit in the sun and heat. Everything was excellent. Caroline did an excellent job with the photography. She knew just the right light and spot for pictures. Nancy kept the ceremony and reception flowing and on time. We were very pleased with the whole experience.

Vecoma definitely deserves a 5 out of 5 rating. They helped us every step of the way. The funny thing is, they were not even on my list of venues at first. I went to another location near them and was treated badly so I gave them a call and they saw me the same day! What a difference it was from my first few places. The staff was attentive and helpful from the start. When my husband and I first went to Vecoma it was pouring down rain. And we still fell in love with it. Honestly though if it wasn't for the people there I would have worried a lot more. Caroline in particular made an impression on us; she was so nice and helpful and never rushed us or made us feel like we were just another client. As the big day closed in, I did start getting nervous and called them like a million times. But they were always helpful and reassuring. On the big day, everything went smoothly. I was running late and freaking out but they didn't rush me at all. The pictures turned out amazing! Caroline did a wonderful job on them and I definitely recommend having her as your photographer. I would recommend them to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed!!

I would recommend them to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed!!

My husband and I were married at Vecoma at the Yellow River on May 8, 2011. The venue was the perfect site for our wedding. Who knew this gem was hidden away in Snellville, GA?! If you and your groom love a beautiful outdoor venue, then Vecoma should truly be on your list to visit. As soon as you turn onto Vecoma Lane, you are transported to the north Georgia mountains. The river meandering by behind the arbor, the lush tree line surrounding the wedding site made it secluded, peaceful and serene.

The Vecoma staff members were wonderful to work with. The ladies kept each other well informed about every detail of our wedding. They were very professional and sincerely wanted us and our guests to have a great time. One of the best decisions we made was to have a photo booth for our guests to use while we were taking formal pictures. Our guests dressed in fun costumes before having their picture taken. The photographer developed the photos, created a wedding album, had the guests sign the album plus provided individual copies to the guests - this was done before the reception ended! That was a huge hit!

I highly recommend Vecoma! The prices were excellent. The food was really good. The buffet was beautifully displayed; the staff attentive. We really enjoyed the day.

Vecoma truly made my wedding day everything you would want it to be and then some. The venue is just breathtaking. From the ceremony site set right on the Yellow River to the building and deck for the recpetion. They were very flexible in working with me and understanding of my many situation that happen to arise throughout my wedding planning process.

They had everything perfect and stress-free on the day of my wedding. I had every Brides worst nightmare...RAIN on my wedding day! Vecoma worked with me literally to the minute in making sure my wedding was everything I wanted and we ended up still being able to hold my ceremony outside.

I could not have asked for a better venue and staff. I would highly recommend Vecoma to fellow Brides!!!

Wonderful place for a wedding! I wanted a very low stress wedding, and Vecoma did a great job reducing all of the stresses. They were so organized and efficient. It was so nice that we were able to pick out the venue, food, and photographer in one place! They even helped us by recommending places to find cakes, flowers and an officiant. The grounds are beautiful and Caroline does a wonderful job with the pictures! We were so happy with everything!

Vecoma was such an amazingly gorgeous setting. Their outdoor ceremony venue is just gorgeous and the reception hall is wonderful. It comes already decorated with draped cloth and white lights on the inside and candles in the beautiful fireplace. The service was great and everything went off without a hitch. If you are looking for an affordable venue close to the city with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception all in one locale, this is the place for you. Its super easy to get to for guests as well as its right off of highway 78. Our wedding night was so amazing and everyone raved about how beautiful the setting was and how good the food was as well.

The staff at Vecoma were very helpful. They walked us through each detail step by step and made sure my guest and wedding party were comfortable. While we took pictures after the ceremony, the staff brought us cocktails and appetizers.
The venue is stunning, and the food was amazing. My guest still talk about the food today! The staff seemed to know the wedding business very well, they made sure they had all grounds covered. When we needed an additional photographer for the groomsmen, they offered their services and did an excellent job. I highly recommend this venue to brides to be. When you have Vecoma as your venue, everything is stress and worry free.

All the staff was great and everything we requested was done. It was the first place we actually visited and there happen to be a promo going on so we got the venue at a very good price. Many of our guests commented that it was one of the most special venues that had ever seen. It was so nice to have the ceremony and reception in one location and to have easy access to the beautiful grounds throughout the day. The location was beautiful and the entire staff spent every second we were there making the event a one in a million day. Lastly the food, I am still getting compliments on the food three months after our wedding. Everything was perfect on my wedding day and his staff is unbelievable. I could not have asked for more and the experience there made my day extremely memorable.

Vecoma is one of the loveliest places to have a wedding in Atlanta. They are in a gorgeous, private park setting near the Yellow River. Inside Vecoma is lovely too with a huge room for the wedding festivities. I particularly liked that as not a fan of chapels with little chopped up rooms. Everyone was able to be part of the wedding festivities this way. The wedding planners were very helpful, kind and efficient and made things go smoothly during my daughter's Nov 1, 2009 wedding before and during. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and wait staff also very efficient. I also liked our bartender and DJ and Caroline was a fabulous photographer and wedding album breathtaking. I am so pleased that we found Vecoma on the Yellow River.

A beautiful reception venue with wonderful staff who made everything easy! We didn't have to worry about a thing. Everything was done in one spot and at a more affordable price than trying to scurry all around Atlanta to find the vendors. The DJ and the Photographer who were also provided by Vecoma did an outstanding job. The staff were attentive and kept on top of everything. Trully excellent service and made the day memorable for all the right reasons!

What initially attracted me to Vecoma at the Yellow River was the fact that it felt so removed from the fast pace of Atlanta. It is a more private location that allows for beautiful outdoor and indoor weddings. Another great feature are the services provided by Vecoma. They are capable of on-site catering as well as providing this frazzled bride with the tables, chairs,dining amenities decorations; the list goes on for what is offered at a very reasonable price. They will also work with you when you are selecting a date for your ceremony. I would highly recommend Vecoma at the Yellow River for any such service!

I really can't say enough good things about Vecoma. I planned my wedding myself and did so on a budget of about $10,000. When I found Vecoma, I put down my deposit that day because I knew at that point it was absolutely the best deal in the Atlanta area. What Vecoma charged for the wedding and reception (including the catering!) was less than what other venues charged in just rental fees. And the location is just beautiful- the trees, the river, the flowers, and not a road or shopping center in sight! The staff at Vecoma was very professional and capable- I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. My wedding was wonderful and all our guests had a wonderful time. I happily recommend Vecoma to anyone who wants a tasteful, elegant, intimate wedding without spending your life savings.

They made me feel so comfortable about the whole thing! I was able to contact someone at any time of day or night to help me pin down all the details. They made everything run smoothly and the big day was perfect. Everyone talked about how nice the staff was and how good the food was. It was a terrific bargain on top of everything else! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Vecoma at Yellow River is a well hidden little known secret full of beauty and romance. The flowers and landscaping provide a gorgeous embellishment to any wedding, and the sounds of the river babbling over the rocks as well as the other nature sounds makes for a lovely soundtrack for the big day. If you're looking for dreams to come true this is definitely the little piece of paradise for this to happen. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better the staff of Vecoma excels above and beyond with the exceptional reasonableness and customer focused care and attention which they provide. This is a must venue on any event program, one which is guaranteed to give everybody piece of mind, and will never allow place for regrets. Writing this review has me even more excited for our big day to get here; We never got to have the big wedding of our dreams, nor do we have the wonderful photo memories to go with it, but we are planning on changing all of that come May 2012, and Vecoma is where we plan to make it all happen. Highly Recommended!

I would recommend Vecoma to anyone. Our wedding was held outdoors, thanks to the beautiful weather...it's a perfect spot for an outdoor wedding. There's a beautiful arbor you can decorate, a river behind, and plenty of nature. We invited about 300 guests, and would have still been able to stay fairly close to our budget. The food is absolutely delicious, and the catering there was great as well. It would've been great to just be getting married- in a church, or wherever, but Vecoma really did make our day special. Caroline, the woman in charge, is the biggest sweetheart, and was extremely helpful.

Caroline, the woman in charge, is the biggest sweetheart, and was extremely helpful. Read less

The owners were very professional and easy to work with. They were very willing to provide whatever I needed to make this day one that I would never forget. If I had to do it all over again, I would change absolutely nothing except for my niece stepping on the back of my wedding gown with her muddy shoes.

The staf at Vecoma was exceptional! We communicated with them so many times during the year we planned, and they accommodated us every time. The site was beautiful and quiet!! Our biggest draw to them was that the location was off any major roads and not near any tracks or airports. Too many locations we visited and went to weddings had so much background noise of cars, trains, and planes. The only background noise at Vecoma is the river. The coordinators were wonderful, though they did switch on us last minute..... The next major draw for Vecoma (after the noise) was the large open room with easy-access deck. We had also been to many weddings where the guests were separated into different rooms, and were disconnected from the different activities at the reception. The open room and large windows allowed everyone to experience the reception, including our family that smoked outside. We still get comments about how amazing the food was three years later. Many friends have used our wedding food as the goal for theirs. The food was simple and delicious! (especially the glazed carrots!)

Vecoma was the perfect venue for a classy wedding on a budget. I did not have a wedding planner and my husband and I were paying for our own event. Vecoma was perfect for us because they took care of the details and their packages include everything you need except the cake! My one and only complaint was that we paid for the upgraded open bar, and they ran out of both Jack Daniels and Crown Royal because they only stock 1 bottle of everything. I felt that if we paid for an unlimited bar, they should have had stocked more than 1 bottle of each drink option. We were also married in the afternoon, so maybe they stock more for evening receptions. Everything else was wonderful and the staff was amazing. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an all-inclusive wedding and reception site.

My wedding reception was held here. It was absolutely beautiful. There were many photo opportunities due to the beautiful scenary. The availability with the events coordinator was superb. She was always available and willing to offer suggestions to make our day special. Their staff did a magnificent job assisting my decoration crew with the setup prior to my guests arrival. The food was plentiful and delicious! My guest constantly complimented the food's taste and presentation. The waiters and waitresses ensured all my guests were well taken care of. They even had a cake cutter on site. When the cake cutting was done, she even boxed up the remaining portion of the cake. The bartender was amazing! He created the best green Davistini!!! They were a hit amongst our guests. I would highly recommended this venue!

We wanted to have our wedding in the fall, outside, and this venue was perfect! We were able to have the ceremony outside and the reception inside all in the same location! The food was in-house along with the table cloths and dinnerware. We also used their photographer who allowed us to pick poses we wanted. They were all very helpful through the whole process. The open house they had in the spring is where I found my florist, photographer, and rehearsal dinner venue. I felt with Vecoma I didn't have to do much looking around, all the things I needed they provided for me! The staff was always accommodating with any questions I had either on the phone or e-mail. And the payment plan really worked with our budget! We had friends and family from all over the U.S. and they gushed about how beautiful our wedding was and how for some, it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen! (Who doesn't love to hear that?!)

Vecoma was one of the only venues I even thought about. It was close to where I grew up, close to the church and such an amazing place. My guests were amazed when they arrived at just how beautiful everything was. I myself had been there several times during the day for consultations, but I was in awe when arrived at how amazing it was. It is such a secluded place, that is so close to 78. While you are there, you would never guess that you are that close to Snellville or Stone Mountain.

I don't remember much about the food because there is so much going on, but I heard so much about how great the food was. My new hubby and I were served our dinner and drinks, the server was so kind and willing to get us anything we needed. There were a couple issues with the kegs, but the staff worked quickly to resolve the problems and provided my guests with bottled beer.

We ended up using Vecoma Photography, the "Photo Booth", and DJ Kirk; all accesable through Vecoma. The photography and the "Photo Booth " were such great choices. The "Photo Booth" was a little pricey but very enjoyable. I requested to have some mustaches in addition to the props Nancy already had and she was more than willing to find some. The album you get with it doubles as a guest book and your guests get to take their picture home with them. Vecoma Photography was such a great value. We didn't have our ceremony at Vecoma but the were more than willing to come to our church several hours before the ceremony to start pictures. For less than I could have gotten some of the other photographers I had researched, I got over 6hours with two photographers, a CD and a very nice photo album. The only thing I do not suggest is DJ Kirk, you couldn't hear/understand any of the announcements he made. If it weren't for the songs I had suggested for cake cutting, toastings, garter toss, bouquet toss, etc. we would have had no clue what was going on. He also cut my Father/Daughter dance too short without clearing it with me or my father. (We had taken multiple dance lessons) Then he cut my husbands Mother/Son dance. (This paragraphy has nothing to do with my suggestion of Vecoma itself, just suggestions when you decide to use Vecoma).

I had visited a couple other vendors before deciding on Vecoma. They were all business all the time. Many of them were beautiful had attractive features, but the ladies at Vecoma treated you as an individual as soon as you arrive. They wanted to know how my then fiance and I met and how he proposed and all about us. Caroline was always very responsive with any questions I had or if I needed to reschedule a meeting t=she was very responsive. They make you feel special, just how you should on this once in a lifetime day!

Caroline and Judith provide excellent customer service. Caroline is a very talented photographer and I would highly recommend her services. Vecoma is absolutely beautiful and a very reasonably priced venue. All of our guests LOVED the food...we did the Italian feast. My only complaint would be that the food manager/coordinator for the reception seemed completely unaware of the details of the evening as far as how many tables, number of people at each table, etc. and even argued with my bridesmaids that my numbers were wrong which clearly were not and every single detail had been relayed to Vecoma previously so not sure where the communication break down came from. However, overall, we were very happy with our wedding and ceremony.

I was extremely pleased with my experience with Vecoma! The location is absolutely beautiful - I would have never expected such a quiet, beautiful location to be right off Hwy 78! I was afraid that traffic noise would be an issue during my outdoor ceremony, but there are so many trees between the highway and the venue that this wasn't an issue at all!

Vecoma definitely had the best value that I found in the metro Atlanta area - especially if you use one of their Friday night/Sunday afternoon "deals." This saved us so much money, and enabled us to have a wedding that we wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise. I know that Saturdays are the most popular day for weddings, but Vecoma makes having it on a Friday or Sunday definitely worth it!!

Vecoma was extremely flexible with me - I had a few "special" requests and we were able to work out a way for me to have the day of my dreams.

At the reception, my husband and I were greeted immediately by Kirk, who was amazing the whole reception. Food and drinks were brought to our table so we didn't have to stand in line, and Kirk made sure to check on us and make sure we didn't need anything. Oh, and the food was awesome!!

Overall, we had an amazing wedding experience at Vecoma! I only had a few minor issues:
I had worked with Nancy through the entire planning process (she's amazing, btw!) and I was under the impression that she would be running our rehearsal and be there for the wedding ceremony. Instead, Caroline helped with the rehearsal and ceremony. It wasn't a huge deal, but it would have been nice to continue working with Nancy. Caroline was great too, so that wasn't really an issue in the end.

I didn't like the way that the staff cut the cake. Every single plate had HUGE slices of both the wedding cake and groom's cake, and therefore people got a lot more cake than they wanted, and a lot got thrown out. Plus a lot of people didn't get to try the groom's cake because it was gone so quickly. Again, not a huge issue, but something that bugged me a little.

I would definitely recommend using Vecoma for your wedding ceremony and/or reception!

I initially started my search for a venue for my wedding by looking through the entirety of Atlanta. Price was not much of a problem, but any I could save was most welcome. After visiting over 15 exquisite facilities and a few not so exquisite, I found that Vecoma was near the bottom of the price range and also near the top of the quality.

Vecoma is an absolutely beautiful venue, with a lovely outdoor experience. Behind the wonderful architecture of the house and the well decorated porch is a downslope of green grass leading to a beautiful ceremony spot just overlooking one of the more breathtaking points of Yellow River. With many spots ideal for photo ops as well as the background noise of a flowing river, I could think of no more ideal a location to join in union with my beloved.

Our wedding was hectic due to the fact that we put it together with only a quarter of the recommended time, but the staff at Vecoma were ever so helpful in giving us information and suggestions about how to do the wedding as neither of us had any clue of the traditions. They also helped us in locating florists and a minister that surpassed all of my expectations.

On the final day, we had our wedding, which was far more gorgeous than either of us had planned. It was truly the happiest day of my life, and I am ever grateful to the staff of Vecoma for their invaluable assistance.

Vecoma was a great place to have a wedding. The setting is great, both indoors and outdoors. And luckily if you plan an outdoor wedding and it rains you can have the ceremony inside (as was the case in ours). The reception area at night is pretty and cozy. It felt like dinner with all your friends and family but with plenty of dance space.

The staff is very friendly and I was amazed at how quickly they got the ceremony and reception areas together. They have decorations for use - but I brought my own and they set those up without a problem. The staff is good at communication - especially through e-mail and helpful with planning.

The food was fantastic. We had a buffet and people did not leave hungry.

Overall I was very impressed with the facilities and with the staff and it was the perfect place for my wedding.

It was a great pleasure getting married at Vecoma. I did not start planning my wedding until 3 months before, and I was lucky to get a wedding date here. Caroline, one of the wedding coordinators, was very nice and professional during our meetings and at the wedding. She was even able to do my photography with only 2 weeks notice. We put very little planning into the wedding and everything went as smoothly as can be. My only minor disappointment was the food. The food was not bad, but it was not what we expected for the price. Overall, I would recommend Vecoma at the Yellow River.

I'm a kind of laid back person, who is use to doing everything myself and not depending on others; so I was just able to focus on getting ready and spending time with my wedding party. I felt that everything flowed smoothly and we were not rushed in any way. We both enjoyed our big day.

We chose Vecoma at Yellow River due to the beautiful surroundings, and the value.
Positive:
Vecoma is charming and beautiful, from the inside out. The food is EXCELLENT! We chose a southern bbq buffet, and it was delicious! Several guests complimented the food!
Value. I looked at a ridiculous number of venues, and no one could quiet compete with the value I found in Vecoma, as far as pricing, and the beauty of the venue are concerned.
Constructive
I was confused during the reception because no one really orchestrated the flow of events. No one announced a toast. No one announced cutting the cake, etc. I felt like my guests were confused at times. I kept running around trying to find my mom, or a bridesmaid, to get the DJ to make the announcement. I thought a "day of planner/coordinator" helped with the flow of these things, which was suppose to be included. Perhaps I didn't have the proper understanding of their role. I wish someone had clarified whom would do this, and/or, if I needed to "appoint" someone.
The DJ. I would not recommend DJ Kirk. He is a pleasant man to work with, but again, the announcements were off all night, and then at the end of the night, he could not have emphasized a greater number of times, that my guests needed to leave. It was rather rude, and I was slightly embarrassed. This impacts my review rating because he was recommended by Vecoma.

Regardless of the constructive feedback, I wouldn't have had my wedding anywhere else. Vecoma is beautiful. It provides an affordable wedding for Brides who want that extra something special, but within their budget. They are also wonderful to work with on a payments schedule, and the women of Vecoma are very responsive to communication, and flexible to your needs. While I was not 100% pleased with the DJ, we did love our officiant, and our florist, both of whom, Vecoma recommended. Our wedding was beautiful, and special, and "Thank you" to Vecoma for making that possible!

Excellent service, great value, excellent food and beautiful natural surroundings. The service staff was pleasant and very attentive. The inside decor is a little outdated and they should spend some time bringing it up-to-date. It is not unpleasant, but you will definitely need to decorate well to bring the beauty to your event. It was very hot the day of our wedding and the reception hall was not cool enough for our guests. If you have your event during the hot summer, insist they blast the AC many hours earlier than your event. They do not keep the hall comfortable when not in use, and it takes more time for the hall to cool off then what they currently allocate. All-in-all we were very pleased and a wonderful memory was created for the wedding reception.

Vecoma at the Yellow River responded with the following comments:

Your guests were all hugging our staff and telling us that they had a fabulous time. Some of your guests actually told us they were too cold. Honest! The place looked beautiful. The centerpieces were the only thing “brought in”. A national TV show this very week was filmed inside our lodge, because it’s décor is so lovely. Very honestly, we were present at the event working very hard and we found it nice and cool. Lots of people’s taste differ on room décor and temperature At the event July 30th, the band made this announcement, “Kudos to Vecoma. This is the coolest place we’ve played all summer”.

Vecoma is a beautiful place for a wedding or reception. Their food is excellent, and if you are on a tight budget they can work with you. The only complaint that my husband and I have is the lack of communication. There was some mix up about what we wanted, and what we were suppose to pay for. But the ladies working here were able to straighten everything out with a few phone calls.

I was recently married at Vecoma, and my wedding was amazing. The place was beautiful, and there were very few hitches. The really big one was that they scheduled a rehearsal during our set up time, and the other party refused to leave when their time was up. My mother had to confront the other group, and they were really ugly to her. My guests began to show up, and we had no place to put them. I really feel that the venue should have taken care not to have that kind of situation. After that was all over, the rest of the night ran smoothly, and beautifullly.

As for the food, it was ok. We had the italian menu, and it was pretty much generic pastas and bread with the exception of the AMAZING veggie lasagna.

Vecoma was a beautiful venue for our wedding. We were a little bummed that it rained so we could not use the outside grounds, we really wanted to be able to do so.

Carolyn is extremely helpful and pleasant...and is always ready to accommodate your questions and concerns.

The food was tasty (from my perspective) some of my guest complained about the fish. But over all it was a easy place to have our wedding there. My only concern is that if you have a lot of decorations for outside and it might rain be prepared to have your decorators move everything quickly to flip the room. The event manager is helpful - Good choice if you have a simple wedding.

It was a pleasure working with Denise. She was very kind. Caroline was very , very rude to my wedding planner the day of the wedding. We were running late, and she would not stop attacking the wedding planner until we handed her a credit card. We had paid her in full two weeks before nad she had our deposit. When she confronted me, as the bride, since I had my wedding dress on and did not have a credit card handy, she demanding it right there. Thank God my husband had it in his wallet. Wedding should be as stress free as possible. Caroline, owner, gave us added stress that was not needed.

My advise to future bride, is not to work with Caroline. Request someone else to be in charge.

Other than that, we enjoyed Vecoma.

Vecoma is a diamond in the rough. It has so much potential. Caroline is great but a few things took the sparkle out of our day....mainly the filthy chairs at the reception. It was embarassing to me to have guests sit on them. They either need to have them steam cleaned or replaced altogether. They made the whole reception feel cheap like in a second rate facility. We didnt notice them during our meetings as the chairs were pushed into the table. Also the quote said linens included but the napkins were paper which made the reception look cheap. Other things small mirror in bridal room which is actually the sales room....tiny. the grooms room offered to change clothes was the outdoor dirty storage bldg.

We still had a wonderful time and I would recommend them only if they replaced or cleaned the chairs for brides that hate the covered chair look which takes away from the chavari chair beauty. And....no surprises like paper napkins.

My wedding reception at Vecoma at the Yellow River was PERFECT! Denise, Judith and Caroline did a wonderful job of making sure all of the fine touches were there and done exactly how we wanted them. They were all very good listeners to my husband and I, and were full of spectacular ideas to make our day even better!!! The food was superb...we have had so many compliments on how wonderful the food tasted, as well as the display of the buffett and the set up of the venue. The staff who worked the wedding was very professional and courteous to our guests. I could not have asked for a better reception and celebration for my wedding day! I would reccommend Vecoma at the Yellow River to ANYONE who wants to have a great time at a great place! " by Jennifer and Michael Anderson

Overall, Vecoma did a good job. The food was included, and good; the linens and some decor items were included in the package and the cost was quite reasonable. At the last minute we had to have our ceremony inside due to weather, and it was set up and handled quickly and efficiently. The guests had a good time at the reception and we left mostly pleased. Our concerns were in communication: we were not told that another couple would be doing a planning visit while we were setting up; we asked that they NOT set up a sweetheart table, but no one told the staff so they did; we used the in-house DJ who asked that we choose 40 songs for the reception - he may have played 10 of them, and some of the songs for both ceremony and reception were different versions than we'd requested making our timing off; finally, we were told that the staff would prepare plates for us while the guests went through the buffet line so that we could eat and still have time to mingle, but this didn't happen automatically - eventually my mother had to sak the head server - but after asking it was handled quickly. There were some unexpected positives too: we were given complimentary champagne (couple only) during our attendants' toasts, which we didn't expect; Once asked, the staff did everything they could to accomodate. Overall we had a good experience, and the cost was appropriate.

Vecoma was my first and only choice for my reception. The venue and the surrounding landscape was perfect for what I was looking for. They are located on the river and have many other places for taking beautiful pictures. I did not have my wedding ceremony here. The meeting times were pretty casual and they offered to show us around during someone else's event, which could be good and bad. The price was in the normal range for the amount of people we had there. They are limited with the number of people they can hold. Our 200 people was pushing the limits, but they did very well. They have a large open area inside with an outside back deck that can be opened for more people. The deck can be "screened" in with heaters to be used in colder months. They were very good with keeping the food coming (buffet style) and with the transitioning of toast glasses and cutting the cake.

The Vecoma itself was a beautiful place to have our reception, but I have to say that the communication from the staff was less than stellar. If we had one woman, we walked out very confussed, and then the other woman would explain everything to us, and we would walk out very confident about what we were getting. All in all, they didn't ruin my reception, we still had fun regardless, but it was a little frustrating to plan. The prices were about average.

Absolutely PERFECT!!! I had my wedding at Vecoma at Yellow River this past weekend. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this venue is. Both the owner Judith, and the manager Denise, were extremely competent, kind and helpful. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and our pictures turned out beautifully thanks to the wonderful scenery. The food was fantastic, all the guests raved about it. The servers were prompt and professional. I didn't need to spend a lot on decorations because the reception hall is already so beautiful. When our wedding cake went missing right before the wedding, Denise immediately sent a server to buy a replacement. If you want a truly magical wedding, I would highly recommend Vecoma at Yellow River!!! See 8 similar reviews on "Kudzu" or "Get Married Atlanta"

I was a matron of honor for my friends wedding. I can't really give a good review of Vecoma because there were so many negatives that I didn't like as a guest as well as a bride a few years back when I was looking for a venue.

First of all, I didn't like the wedding factory approach at Vecoma. You pay for a block of time and you're rushed the entire block. Not to mention, the limited food choices..who pays that kind of money for lasagna?

Second, for the venue to be all about weddings, there staff seemed to be inexperienced and rude. The day is stressful enough with last minute changes, so who needs staff that is cold and inflexible. At my friends wedding, the day of coordinator took the day off and instead of getting an experienced coordinator, Vecona opted to get someone from their catering staff to cover...REALLY!! I felt bad after screaming at her during the wedding, because she was a fish out of water.

I could go on, but needless to say I would never recommend Vecoma to anyone I know or hear of for their wedding. My wedding was on a budget too, but I found a golf club just as reasonable and offered more time, amazing food and enjoyable and professional staff.

Vecoma at the Yellow River responded with the following comments:

We are disappointed with your review of our venue. Your friend rented Vecoma for a specific timeframe on July 17. This was explained when she chose Vecoma and typical of most event facilities. Unfortunately, the wedding ceremony started late because the bride and bridesmaids were late arriving and still getting ready when the ceremony was supposed to start. If the ceremony starts late, all other events are also going to be delayed. Please note, our wedding director was present at the rehearsal and at the ceremony and both the ceremony and reception flowed smoothly despite the delay.

Your friend decided to add additional time at the end of the event which we were happy to accommodate. The lasagna dinner is our most popular dinner because it is delicious and it is a great value. She got an amazing deal for a Thursday evening wedding. It should also be noted there was another weekday wedding two days before on July 15 and the mother of the bride gave us a 5 star review.

While we do primarily cater to weddings, each wedding is unique and special. As a family owned business, we would never describe the Vecoma experience as "factory". We continue our relationships with our brides for years and whole-heartedly wish your friend a lifetime of happiness.

What to say about Vecoma...........
When first looking on the venue it appears to be a beautiful location and ideal for any wedding, but the attitude and professionalism of the staff is something to be desire. When speaking with Renae, one of the planners, regarding some last minute changes, that all weddings sometimes have, she gave the impression that we were an inconvience to her, we could not afford some of the changes and I even over heard her speaking with others outside of the venue regarding monies that we owed. Althgough we had paid for the cost in full, I asked that if there were any overage to address those with my wedding planner or with us following the ceremony, but because of the lack of class and professionalism of the staff, the groom was interrupted during the recepetion reagrding monies that were need.
I have several suggestions : increased professionalism, development of tact, improved customer service, and dealing with people of different race and cultures.
