    Perfect day!

    The smile on our daughter's face throughout her wedding reception at the Gardens at Great Oaks said it all. The location, grounds, assistance, and behind-the-scenes care Joi and Tamzen provided us throughout the wedding planning process and day of were exceptional! Their attention to detail allowed us to relax and enjoy our daughter's wedding and our guests.

    Great Venue!!

    We met with Joi when we went to look at the venue. Talking to her convinced us that this is where we wanted to have our wedding! Tamzen was our wedding planner and she was there with us through it all. We did end up having to postpone our wedding and Tamzen helped us make that process so easy! Beautiful outdoor venue in Historic Roswell.

    Very Happy!

    We were provided with a solid budget for our son's rehearsal dinner. Joi did a great job of overseeing the event and Tamzen was great at watching the timing to make sure everything moved forward during the evening. Guests raved about Chef Adam - the chef that Joi recommended - along with the venue and the service that evening. The event came off without a hitch!
