    The staff was nothing short of amazing on the wedding day. Everyone was extremely helpful and working to fulfill our and our guests needs by anticipating them ahead of time. Mrs. Rita was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. The food was amazing. We opted for an option that isn’t really even an option, but Mrs. Rita and the catering manager made an exception for us. She constantly met our needs and worked with us on many occasions to make the day that much more special. To see how great the venue looked, check out our pics using #RogersLuckyDay on Instagram. It’ll give you a visual of how this cafeteria hall can be flipped into the wedding venue of your dreams. We’d do and pay for it all over again. Our guests keep raving about the food and how beautiful the campus and venue looked. They can’t stop taking about it and we can’t stop thinking about how perfect the day was.

    Agnes Scott is a wonderful wedding venue! My daughter’s ceremony in the Julia Smith Thompson chapel was beautiful. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired wood, glass, and brick structure was charming, both cozy and elegant (two descriptions that typically don’t go together). The cocktail hour in the Alumnae Garden was refreshing and beautiful. There was plenty of room on the terrace for guests who chose to sit and for the jazz trio. When the guests moved into Letitia Pate Evans Hall with its Gothic architecture and magnificent windows, our up-lights, candles, and high and low floral arrangements transformed the hall into a gorgeous area for a buffet and seated dinner and a spacious dance floor. The catering service at Agnes Scott was excellent, and catering director Pete Miller was most helpful. Our only difficulty was deciding which items to choose from a wide array of sampling choices. All of our guests admired the beautiful setting, the delicious food, and excellent service throughout the event. At Agnes Scott, when you rent Evans, you don’t rent only the event hall; you have access to both upper and lower levels. This provided areas for the bridal party to get ready and to store valuables, an area for child-care, and a fall back area for the cocktail hour if rain had come. I was truly able to relax, knowing that all bases were covered. Rita James of the event staff was very easy to work with throughout the process. One thing that impressed me from the beginning and that was very different from other venues we researched: Agnes Scott was completely transparent in how much every detail would cost. There were no surprises. Everything except for the bride’s cake, music, photography, and floral and décor was included, and all prices were most reasonable for excellent quality. We were impressed and delighted to have discovered Agnes Scott as a wedding venue.
