Perfect venue, amazing people
The Peachtree staff made planning a wedding from another state really easy and stress free. I worked with Lindsay on most of the planning - she is fantastically fast at responding to emails and really was on the ball with everything. The venue itself is really gorgeous - both the mansion and the grounds outside. It was the perfect wedding!Sent on 05/25/2019
Also - the food was absolutely amazing and they were able to make everything gluten free (a requirement for myself and 7 other guests). Truly truly fantastic people!

Perfect Venue, Amazing People!
My husband only looked at one venue when we began our search. After seeing Parque, we knew we didn't even need to look at any other venues. The grounds are absolutely stunning - straight out of a fairy tale with the stone exterior and beautiful gardens. It was love at first sight.
Once we began working with Peachtree, things got even better. We couldn't have asked for better people to work with than Lindsay and Fallyn. They were in constant communication, there to answer any questions. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, they were coordinating everything behind the scenes and putting me at ease. We had absolutely no stress the day of the wedding. Jon, the owner, is amazing as well. He truly makes sure you are well taken care of.
And the food. Oh my god, the food. My mouth is still watering thinking about the food we had at our wedding. In my career, I've worked with a lot of caterers and venues, so I can safely tell you that Peachtree is the best there is. Our guests are still talking about our wedding. We consistently hear how amazing the s'mores in a jar dessert was and the short rib entree.
One of my bridesmaids just told me a story about how Peachtree broke down the table she was sitting at to create more space on the dance floor (we got a little crazy) and her purse had been moved. She told how impressed she was with how friendly the staff were to her and how quickly they got her her purse. She said it felt like she was the person in a room of 150 guests.
I cannot say enough about how happy we are that we chose Parque and the Peachtree team. Thank you for making our day so special and enjoyable!Sent on 10/29/2019

Magical Venue and Great Staff!
Everyone always talks about how their wedding was the most perfect day - now I'm one of those people :)Sent on 11/26/2019
From the moment my husband and I arrived at Parque for our tour we knew nowhere else would compare. From its enormous bridal suite to it's beautiful gardens, it's absolutely perfect in every way.
What really made our experience though was the staff. We worked with both Fallyn and Samantha. I cannot say enough positive things about them. From the beginning they were patient, kind, and reliable. Planning a wedding is a super stressful process and they helped me out so much along the way.
Best part is that the day was not technically perfect. There was a tornado a few days before our wedding, which caused a huge water main break. Therefore - there was no running water or electricity onsite. Sounds like a disaster, right? Nope - other than the occasional trip to the porto-potty, you wouldn't have even known.
So, if you're looking to get married in a magical mansion and have a flawless planning process - go with Parque!
