We’ve looked everywhere for the perfect venue, and we finally found it. Though it is 2.5 hours away, it is all that we could have ever asked for. Everyone is so nice and professional. I cannot wait for the day to come 🤞🏽Sent on 06/18/2019

Wedding of my dreams!
I couldn’t have asked for a more memorable and beautiful experience! We got married at Peachtree Point and with the right decor elements, the venue was transformed into something even more beautiful than what it already is! I was worried that it would be too large for 120 guests but it was just right. I had room for an oversized dance floor and 2 carving stations. It was great! The entire staff was incredibly accommodating, professional, and polite. I’d like to specifically recognize Anna Shadburn, who stepped in 3 weeks before our wedding date to take over the catering manager role. Losing our contact 3 weeks ahead of the wedding made me very nervous, but with Anna’s help, we didn’t have a single hiccup. She was super responsive and very calm (which is exactly what a crazy stressed bride needs) :)
The villa suites were also so much fun to hang out in after our wedding! The bottle of
Champagne and strawberry gift from the staff were such a sweet touch. The valet staff and bellman were always eager to help us. One of the Legacy Lodge staff members even left in his personal vehicle to pick us up orange juice and other random things after the wedding. We felt like everyone went above and beyond for us, and felt very special!
Recommendations for LLI:
- Provide easier way to get vendors in and out of villa suites
- Middle aisle for Peachtree point (I hear this is in progress)
- Outdoor access to bridal holding room at Peachtree PointSent on 10/29/2019

Lake Lanier has been a perfect place for me to work at for a few years. They have so many beautiful venues to choose from. Great venue
They have an excellent staff, and playing jazzy music with my saxes during a Wedding dinner on the main deck and dance music for the reception on the upperdeck of the Isaland Princess was a real trip! Not only did we have fun, but so did all the boats that surrounded and traveled with us! Thank you Carol!
