5 star experience in every way!

We had the most incredible wedding experience, thanks in large part to Rita, our amazing wedding venue coordinator. From the very beginning, Rita was an absolute gem to work with, and I can't express how grateful we are for her assistance throughout our entire journey.

Rita was not just helpful; she was an indispensable part of making our dream wedding a reality. She was there with us every step of the way, from helping us select the perfect menu items to recommending fantastic vendors who exceeded our expectations. Her willingness to share her expertise and her genuine desire to ensure our day was everything we hoped for was truly remarkable. I must add that the food was so delicious, and the chef is amazing!

What sets Rita apart is her genuine kindness responsiveness. She answered every single question we had promptly and was always available to provide guidance, even during those inevitable moments of pre-wedding hiccups. Rita went above and beyond, attending vendor walkthroughs, facilitating communication, and even setting up calls to gather pricing information, making our planning process seamless and stress-free.

Rita, your dedication and commitment to our special day did not go unnoticed. You made us feel like our wedding was the most important event, and your attention to detail was stellar in every way. Christopher and I are so thankful for your exceptional support and the part you played in making our wedding day absolutely perfect.

We can't recommend Rita and the entire team at Agnes Scott College enough. Thank you, Rita, from the bottom of our hearts.

With immense gratitude,

Christopher and London Coble

Amazing Vendor

From the start of touring Agnes Scott, we had a great experience. The venue is gorgeous. We used the Letitia Pate Hall for our ceremony & reception and it was breathtaking. No one believed the space is actually the students dining hall. The best of all was the staff, especially Rita James. She was a humongous help during the entire process. We had a large wedding with a lot of moving pieces but it was handled with ease. Our wedding was a huge success and I give so much thanks to Rita and the Agnes Scott staff. Also let me not forget, the food was amazing. We had the catfish and cajun chicken, absolutely delicious. I'll be returning just for the food.

Enchanted Forever: A Magical Wedding at Agnes Scott College

Oh, where do I even begin to describe the enchanting experience that was my wedding at Agnes Scott College? It was nothing short of a fairy tale brought to life, and I owe it all to the extraordinary efforts of Rita James, the manager of special events. From the moment we started planning, Rita's expertise and genuine passion for her work shone through, and she took our dreams and turned them into an unforgettable reality.

The food was an absolute delight, leaving our guests raving about the delectable dishes for weeks after the event. Rita and her team ensured that every culinary detail was flawlessly executed, leaving our taste buds dancing with joy. The communication throughout the entire planning process was seamless, and Rita's warm and attentive approach made us feel like we were her top priority, even though I know she handles countless events.

I must commend Rita for her exceptional patience and professionalism, as I bombarded her with countless questions, anxieties, and last-minute changes. But she handled everything with grace and ensured that no detail was left unattended. She truly made the entire journey leading up to our big day stress-free and enjoyable.

But the magic didn't stop with Rita; it permeated every corner of Agnes Scott College's stunning campus. The beauty of the surroundings added an ethereal touch to the atmosphere, creating an ambiance that made our hearts skip a beat. The team at Agnes Scott College orchestrated a seamless transformation of the venue, leaving us and our guests in awe as we walked into the exquisitely adorned room.

The wedding was so phenomenal that many of our guests are already requesting a "part two" in the form of a vow renewal celebration! And you know what? I can't blame them! Agnes Scott College and its exceptional staff have become like family to us, and we are already contemplating returning to relive those magical moments once again.

In conclusion, Agnes Scott College is more than just a venue; it's a haven of enchantment where dreams come to life. If you're looking for a place that exudes elegance, boasts a dedicated and talented team, and offers an experience that you and your guests will cherish forever, look no further. My wedding at Agnes Scott College was beyond extraordinary, and I eagerly anticipate the day we can return for our vow renewal celebration. Thank you, Rita James, and the entire team, for making our special day an affair to remember for a lifetime!
