    Venue tour

    Mrs Rita was beyond great! She was so helpful and answered every question we had. I would definitely recommend this venue. It is gorgeous, only reason we decided not to go with it was because it was a little far from where we live.

    A Perfect Day and a Proud Scottie

    Working with Rita James, the special events coordinator at Agnes Scott College, was a pleasure. She kept the experience of planning our wedding reception at my alma mater stress free, convenient, and fun. She is kind, professional, responsive, good natured, and made sure I felt special and well taken care of as an alumna. My mother loved her, and my husband was very impressed. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we had to postpone the wedding and reschedule. That decision was painstaking and anxiety producing, but ASC worked with me and was very flexible and understanding. We didn’t lose any money and didn’t have to start the planning process over. A year later, we picked up where we left off, and Rita made it happen. She worked well with my wedding planner. I highly recommend that the bride and bridal party stay on campus at the Alumnae House the night before the wedding; for me, doing so made the wedding day relaxing and go so smoothly. Evans Dining Hall is a beautiful venue, the catered food was delicious, the staff and security very professional, and our professional photos stunning! I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day, and a huge reason for that perfection is because of Agnes Scott College. Thank you!

    Absolutely Fantastic Experience- Could Not Recommend More!

    Rita, Chef Mario, and the entire staff at Agnes Scott College are incredible. The food was unbelievably good, there are so many options to choose from with all sorts of price points, the venue is stunning (both the chapel and the reception hall), and the entire staff is wonderful. This was a heavily delayed covid wedding and Rita was so flexible, generous, and responsive even as I pushed the date THREE times over 20 months. Rita answered all of my questions so quickly and thoroughly and made me feel informed the entire time (I am over-the-top with my planning, so that was so amazing for me).

    We wound up with a November 13th date and the entire campus was stunning, the foliage was absolutely breathtaking, and the photos are incredible. My guests all gushed over the food, venue, and campus (and Decatur in general!). It was so convenient to get to Agnes Scott from downtown Decatur square where all my guests stayed, and they loved all the restaurants and bars to check out and how they didn't need to rent a car to get around.

    In short, have your wedding here -- I promise you will not regret it! And thank you one more time to Rita, truly a delight to work with.
