    Excellent service and value !

    My Daughter was married on 3/20/21. The staff was AMAZING ! They went out of their way on everything, if I could give the a 100 star rating I would. Gwen and Brianna were absolutely fantastic !
    From coordinating very detail of every minute to being flexible on some last minute changes they worked with us and made everything go so smoothly. For a once in a lifetime event for not only my daughter and her mom and dad they made it a day we will never forget and memories we will hold in our heart forever!
    I highly recommend the Tate House - you won’t regret using them.

    Fairy Tale Wedding Day

    The Tate House created the wedding of my daughters dreams! She married her Prince Charming, in a Fairy Tale Castle with a Secret Garden, surrounded by a Flowers, Family and much loved Friends! This venue is SPECTACULAR and their staff (Cindy, Tori, Konda) embodies the perfect combination of professionalism and southern hospitality ! The ceremony floral design my daughter had her heart set on was not going to be easily achieved but The Tate House has a FABULOUS floral designer, Paul, who truly went above and beyond to bring her "secret garden / chapel" vision to life (staying within my budget), bringing the garden to the chapel complete with gated entry!
    I toured at least 10 different venues with my daughter and although some others were beautiful, none of them could match the level of excellence of The Tate House.
    The grounds are immaculate! Their gardeners deserve huge props! Not a weed in sight and every shrub perfectly manicured! I imagine, if Disney wanted to add a destination wedding venue, The Tate House would fit the Beauty and the Beast theme perfectly. In the ballroom bar area there are even wood carvings of beautiful roses throughout the paneling. Around every corner there is something special and unforgettable. The food is exceptional!
    There are even separate cottages for the Bride and her girls to get ready and for the Groom and his guys! The Bridal Cottage is worthy of it's own review but you just have to see for yourself to fully appreciate how special it is.
    A couple tips if you fall in love with this venue like we did:
    1) Plan extra time for social hour if you can. There will never be enough time to take all the photos your photographer will want to capture at this incredible venue. You will need the extra time.
    2) Expect to be kept to a TIGHT timeline. When they say the event ends, it ends. Time to go. This is not a party all night type of venue. Prepare your family/friends for an end time.
    3) Opt for the Champaign Punch at social hour! You will thank me. It is THAT good!

    Best Day of My Life

    The Tate House made my dream wedding a reality on October 16, 2021. From start to finish, they made the wedding planning process enjoyable and as stress-free as possible. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, nestled away in North Georgia. It is so unique for the area, as most of the other venues around offer a more rustic vibe, which was not what I personally wanted. The Tate House was so classy and elegant. Furthermore, they were so kind and understanding during the COVID pandemic, working with us every step of the way including having to change our original date. Additionally, their pricing is very reasonable compared to other venues around the area and the packages can be customized to include exactly what you desire. They offer a personal wedding coordinator that meets with you multiple times prior to the big day. Ours was Gwen, who was absolutely amazing. She was always there is those inevitable times of panic to answer our questions leading up to the event. She was also there, working so hard, behind the scenes at the wedding to ensure everything went as planned. The wedding day itself was perfect. Even our other vendors made comments about how smoothly everything went. We had so many compliments from our guests on the food and drinks. There was nothing about the day I would have changed, and I would recommend the Tate House to any bride out there! A few questions I had and worried about prior to my wedding that may help others.. #1 was the location, given there aren’t many hotels in the area. What we did was rent out houses in the neighboring Big Canoe area for the wedding party and recommended our out-of-town guests stay there as well. It made the weekend so fun and turned it into a multi- day event. There are also great restaurants and things to do nearby. The other big concern I had was about alcohol, given they did not allow an open bar. However, with signature drinks, beer and wine, it was still such a party, so don’t let that stop you from considering this venue! Thank you again to the Tate House and your amazing staff for giving me my perfect day I will always cherish!!
