The Kellum family was one of the most prominent and wealthy families in the U.S. in the early 1900s. Mrs. Elizabeth Carnegie Kellum was the niece of Pittsburgh steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. Mr. and Mrs. Kellum and their children fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains and purchased over 1,000 acres to establish a working farm with Arabian horses, angora goats and other livestock. In 1928, the school and dormitory on-site burned and became the ruins that continue to be part of the original acreage known as Kellum Valley Farm.

Best day ever!
I cannot brag enough on DeAnne and her staff. DeAnne was so incredible and responsive from my very first meeting with her, all the way through the reception. The crew at Kellum was so willing to work with my vision and did whatever they could to make it come to fruition. They nailed it. My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect day and I owe so much of that to DeAnne, Cali, and the incredible staff of Kellum.Sent on 11/12/2018

From the moment I saw pictures of the Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm online looking at venues, I fell in love, and the love only continued throughout the entire planning process with DeAnne and on the wedding day with my awesome coordinator Amber and all the staff. Once you visit Kellum Valley, no other wedding venue will compare. The catering, cake, chairs, tables, etc, and many decorations are all included, which was a breath of fresh air as it took a few things off my wedding planning to-do list, and DeAnne was so so so helpful every step of the way, always responding so quickly to all my questions with helpful responses and referrals to other venues in the area that were all phenomenal (especially Flower Buds!). I wanted a wedding day where my guests, family, bridal party, and me and my (now) husband could all take the time to enjoy the special magic of the day instead of running around stressed about the little details, and boy did the whole staff at Kellum Valley deliver. The Ruins are truly a special place, and we had the most magical, romantic, relaxing, and special wedding day! While there are a whole selection of ceremony sites, we chose to have the wedding in front of the ruins, and they made the most romantic and unique backdrop to our ceremony. Our reception for dinner and our epic dance party was in the ruins and our guests could not stop talking about the beauty of the venue. I loved the string lights and candles set up throughout the ruins during dinner and dancing. We also selected the option to have our rehearsal dinner under the tent at Kellum Valley the night before the wedding - it is a great space with long farm tables and we catered from 'Cue BBQ in Cumming. Everything about the whole weekend went off without a hitch. Thank you so much to DeAnne and the whole team at Kellum Valley - they do an amazing job!Sent on 09/30/2018
