Perfect Wedding Venue, especially during pandemic
We cannot say enough to speak to our satisfaction of our wedding venue, Vecoma at the Yellow River.Sent on 07/23/2020
First of all, if you are looking for a serene outdoor venue in Georgia, close to the city, this is the perfect venue for you (LOOK NO FURTHER). We love the outdoors and this venue is gorgeous and located right on the river bank. The fact that catering is through the venue made everything very simple as well. We found the pricing to be extremely reasonable through Vecoma compared to other venues we considered which were not as nice. We had the benefit of planning for over a year and had the opportunity to see the venue a few times during the year and it is beautiful year round. There are lots of special nooks and areas for pictures which we loved as well.
The indoor reception room is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. It is a nice blank canvas for any kind of decor you may have in mind.
Caroline, the venue owner, and all staff members are extremely professional and easy to work with both on wedding day and planning. Our wedding fell right in the middle of the pandemic which required us to reschedule from April to July. Caroline and Vecoma kindly and graciously allowed us to reschedule easily and without extra fees. They helped us do everything possible to keep our guests safe. They had a page long list of procedures they followed to ensure guest and staff safety while remaining flexible to allow us to make our day just as special. This is the perfect venue for "coronavirus times" because there was ample spacing outdoors for ceremony chairs to be spaced and there is a huge deck for outdoor dining and mingling/cocktail hour. Staff all wore masks, and there was hand sanitizer EVERYWHERE. I really appreciated that the venue did everything they could to keep all of our guests safe.
Caroline offers day of coordination and was extremely available when we needed her for guidance throughout the process. She always returned calls promptly and was accommodating and easy to work with. We had a photographer and she even took a couple cool photos for us and provided them to us free of charge. The catering is through the venue and is wonderful. We did bbq dinner for our 4th of July wedding and it was really very tasty. Bar services were excellent as well.
Once again, I cant thank Caroline or Vecoma enough for making our special day so wonderful. Even under the crazy world circumstances it felt very personal and like Caroline wanted our wedding to happen so badly. The venue and staff did everything they could to make our day special and worked wonderfully with our other vendors.
The venue is truly a gem of a space and would be perfect for other kinds of events as well. I would encourage anyone to reach out to Caroline for any needs. The venue space is owned by her and has been in her family for over 20 years and it shows. It felt like we were welcomed into her home for our special day.
THANK YOU VECOMA. You all are amazing.

I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding here and the venue was amazing! There were many spots to take gorgeous photos outside. Indoors was a photographers dream with the white interior that made the photos come out amazing and easy to work with. Would hands down recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 11/19/2020
