    Portico and Peachtree were amazing!!

    Portico was the perfect venue for our wedding - it's so beautiful! The Peachtree staff were attentive and helpful! Staff members checked in on me (and made sure I had a drink) throughout the night which was so thoughtful. All the tables looked amazing and them helping pack up our decorations at the end of the night was incredible. Lindsay was a great coordinator and helped us throughout the entire planning process! Amy, the wait staff lead, was also great and went out of her way to accommodate the bridal party and all our guests.聽 Our wedding day was a little untraditional and Lindsay, Amy, and their team went above and beyond to make what we wanted a reality.聽 The food was also amazing (especially the dim sum station)! Highly recommend Peachtree, Lindsay and Amy for your wedding.

    Amazing Experience All Around!

    I feel obliged to start by stating my Wife and I were definitely budget concerned when looking at a venue. After speaking with many venues, we found Peachtree and were promptly contacted by the team. Our budget was of their priority just as much, helping us to stay within our range the entire time. We elected to get married at Portico, based on the price and natural beauty of the grounds. Given the price comparatively speaking in the area, I had somewhat reasonable expectations for the space and event. Those expectations were blown out of the water, from the planning to the event itself. Not one email or call we made went unanswered, shout out Lindsay - You're Amazing. The food and space itself was beautiful, every guest had nothing but wonderful things to say. I would highly recommend this venue and Peachtree to anyone in the area!
