I just wanted to express my thanks to your family and staff for the wonderful wedding that we had at your lovely farm this past weekend. Angie sent me an e-mail message yesterday and said that it was the "best day of her life" -- and rightfully so. Everything was just beautiful.”
Billie Swinford-Mother of the Bride
“I have just fallen in love with you guys. You have made by wedding day more than I had ever dreamed it would be and for that words can't express my gratitude. I appreciate all of your hard work and flexibility. You and your crew were more than amazing. Every person at the wedding commented on the gorgeous venue. Once again , thank you so much! Many Blessings.”
“Thank you for making our wedding day so wonderful. It was such a memorable day and we have gotten countless comments on how gorgeous the venue was. Your help made everything run smoothly & I didn’t worry about a single thing.”
“Matt and I had such an incredible day at Kellum Valley. It was everything we ever could have hoped for on our wedding day. The staff was amazing and you and Joel especially went out of the way to make sure that we were completely satisfied with our experience. All of our guests were really impressed by the beauty and ambiance the venue provided. Matt and I (and all of our family and friends) were beyond thrilled with everything about the day. We all have a lifetime of memories to cherish. Thank you so much for all that you and the staff did to make the day so very special and memorable. It was an amazing day.”
“The wedding of my son and his beautiful bride has been described by friends as “the most beautiful outdoor wedding” they had ever been invited to. The guests have complimented on not only what a gorgeous, but also peaceful place The Ruins at Kellum Valley is. While my family agrees, we also know this day would not have gone so smoothly had it not been for you and your staff as you went above and beyond our expectations in making this a most memorable occasion. From the rehearsal dinner to the wedding and reception, it was a blessing to see your family working together to make new beginnings come true for Josh & Kelli.”
Tony & Kathy Martin-Parents of the Groom
“Hey Folks, thanks for a great wedding! We (and our guests) certainly enjoyed ourselves at your place the weekend before last. We continue to receive rave reviews from your hospitality and the beauty of the place.”
“You guys did an absolutely amazing job on you wedding! It was everything I could have ever dreamed about. I love when people ask me what the most stressful part of the day was; because all I have to say is nothing! I didn’t worry about missing or forgetting something because you took care of everything. Everything was exactly where it needed to be and the entire place looked amazing. Thank you soooo much for everything you did!”
“Kellum Valley Farm is incredible and everything about the wedding and reception was really just fabulous! You and all involved obviously take pride in all you do and have great abilities to present every aspect of an event-and the property-in its best light, as well as to keep it all organized. I appreciate your suggestions and work to put it all together that day (and for every step along the way in the planning process). Each and every time we visited, Kristen and Scott loved the place more and more and said they knew they had chosen a special place that suited them perfectly. When their wedding day arrived, it was all even better than anticipated and turned out to be the exact kind of experience they wanted to have.
The farm and ruins speak for themselves in ambiance and uniqueness. I can’t tell you how many people remarked that they were just awestruck at the beauty and special qualities of the property and I even heard some discussing the history of it as well. Knowing the story of the property adds a meaningful element that enhanced the experience. I really don’t think any of them had ever been to a wedding in such a dramatic setting and they were glad to have made the drive! Even our floral designer and photographer (who have probably seen just about every wedding or event venue in the greater Atlanta/North Georgia area) were taken with Kellum Valley Farm and know well enough how special it is!
The food was enjoyed by all and seemed to be plentiful. Everything tasted as good the night of the wedding as it had at the menu tasting back in the summer. Presentation at the buffet (and bar, all around the pool) was just right-it fit the feel of the property AND the wedding so well. I have 2 sons-in-law now, and one is a hearty eater (the groom, Scott) who grew up in his dad’s restaurant and respects good food; the other is a kind of picky eater who doesn’t tolerate much variety but expects what he does to be delicious. Both were pleased and satisfied. Kellum Valley Farm was the perfect setting for Kristen and Scott’s special day and you all were great beyond words!”

“Just wanted to say thanks so much for all your hard work on making Kristen & Nathan’s wedding so beautiful. You truly have a beautiful place for a wedding.”
Anne and Bernie Poteat-Parents of the Bride
“I just wanted to send you an email and let you know how wonderful everything turned out! I just can’t say enough about how we all enjoyed ourselves. Our family and friends can’t stop talking about how wonderful everything was. The cakes are still being talked about!!! That was one of the best cakes I have ever had!!!! I could go on and on! As Hannah and Elliot were getting in the car to leave she told me, “Mom, this is everything I wanted!” I think that says it all!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Sharon Keating-Mother of the Bride
"DeAnne, I just wanted to write you a quick note and say thanks for everything! You really do such a fantastic job and you are so well suited for it. Your laid back approach to everything was one of the biggest appeals to Elisha and I. I have received so many compliments on everything, especially the venue. I've told everyone that I basically did nothing except bring candles and you did the rest. It's a true testament to how wonderful a job you do. I appreciate all the kindness you showed to me and my family during the process."
