    10/10! Book Talega if you can! Amazing

    We had our wedding on December 3, 2022. Throughout our wedding planning process, Michael the venue coordinator was responsive, offered a ton of recommendations, and were even able to accommodate us when some costs were just adding up to be a little bit more than we had anticipated. He was super flexible with some of my silly requests and Has many things for the bride and groom to use on the day of such as a sweetheart back drop, votives, table numbers, easels… The list goes on. All of these small costs add up, so being able to use the venue’s is amazing. The best part about working with this venue is the transparent cost per person as well as all the things included with that cost. Michael never Makes you feel like all the questions you’re asking or inconveniencing him, he always gets back in a timely manner, and he even went out of his way to get me lychee juice and my favorite gin for a signature drink that I wanted. The most impressive thing is because I wanted an Asian inspired dinner, him and his chef collaborated with me and they created a dish that was made specifically for us. All the guests really loved it and it came out beautifully despite the chef having never made that dish before. They really do their best to give you an amazing experience and trust me, the whole venue truly transforms and it is such a magical place. So many of my guests gave us a ton of compliments on the venue, the food, the alcohol, the restrooms. Please book your wedding here, If you can! It’s booking up fast and I can see why! I’m so happy with my choice to get married at Talega.

    Amazing Wedding Venue

    We LOVED our wedding at Talega. It was a beautiful venue for both an outdoor ceremony/ cocktail hour and indoor for dinner and dancing. Michael (Director of Food & Bev) is professional, friendly, and genuinely made us feel so valued throughout the entire planning process. His team was also amazing, including the chef and kitchen staff. Our guests raved about the food! The service and attention to detail seemed higher than other venues we looked at, and we are so happy we ended up choosing Talega for our wedding. Also, we did select some vendors from the preferred vendor list, and they were just as amazing as the Talega team.

    Talega Golf Club's reply:

    Madeline!
    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about Talega!
    It was a real pleasure to assist you and Alex through the planning and on the BIG day. What a wonderful group of friends and family you have!!! We miss you already... Wishing you and yours all the best of health and happiness through the holidays and beyond!
