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

Beautiful setting - Excellent value
Vecoma staff persons were always available to answer questions and to guide us in planning the wedding. The facility - inside and out - is beautiful. Vecoma can accommodate any size wedding, and they were very flexible. All policies and prices were given to us when we signed the contract. There were no surprises. I highly recommend Vecoma!Sent on 01/20/2020
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:We strive to give the very best and appreciate your recommendation so much! So glad you liked our venue as we work hard to make it beautiful for our guests. Thank you!

Exceptional, all-in-one venue!
In January, my fiancé and I were referred to this beautiful venue by a family friend and we were sold! Caroline and Jack were so kind and welcoming. We loved going to the open house that allowed us to taste food options and get familiar with different vendors! Of course at the time we booked with Vecoma, we did not know that a few months later we would have to face planning a wedding during a pandemic. Vecoma has been super flexible and accommodating making things an ease. Not to mention, their patience and timely responses to numerous emails was exceptional. Before Covid-19, I fell in love with Vecoma and shared this excitement with everyone I knew. During Covid-19, my respect and admiration for Vecoma has skyrocketted and I must share my experience with the world. My fiancé and I are incredibly grateful for all that Vecoma has extended to us and it is my hope that all other brides and grooms will seek them out too for their special day. I promise, Vecoma will EXCEED your expectations! Did I mention they are also a one stop shop?!Sent on 05/18/2020

Love in the Time of COVID-19
I do not know where to begin... Planning a wedding during a pandemic was the last thing on our minds when we decided to get married. If it wasn't for Caroline, Jack, and the rest of the WONDERFUL staff at Vecoma At the Yellow River, we would have settled for a civil ceremony at the courthouse or at home. However, all my dreams for the perfect wedding day came to fruition - down to the most minute details. This venue is simply amazing. Hidden in the city of Snellville lies the perfect location to host an indoor or outdoor ceremony. I wanted to get married outside by the arch, and was very disappointed when my fiancé recommended that we hold the ceremony indoors due to the heat (thank God I listened to him); however, Caroline was able to show me how lovely a ceremony would be indoors and even allowed us to bring in our own arch so I could still have the effect I was looking for.
We ended up planning the wedding in about two weeks, but everyone who attended (in person and via Zoom) said that it looked like we had been planning this event for months. I owe all of this to Caroline, her staff, and my incredible Wedding Planner Kimberly Sands. From the moment you pull into the parking area, the remoteness and serenity of the location puts your mind at ease. During our initial meeting with Caroline and Jack, every question was answered in a positive manner and if I asked for something out of the norm, Caroline found a way to accommodate my request. During our rehearsal, my pastor was unable to attend, but Caroline and Kimberly worked together to create the vision for my day based on my wishes. I did not even have a wedding program ready yet, but somehow, they understood my desires and executed them flawlessly.
On the day of our wedding, Caroline and her staff were not only attentive and responsive from the moment we arrived, they did everything within their power to make the day COMPLETELY STRESS FREE! I immediately when upstairs to get ready and every time I uttered, “ask Caroline…” or “find Caroline…” or “I need Caroline…” she magically appeared. I truly felt like a princess for the day. Kimberly and Caroline collaborated to ensure the décor, centerpieces, music, seating, lighting, you name it, was up to my specifications. When I walked through the doors to meet my future husband, I was amazed at the transformation of the room. To put it simply – I was stunned. The day went off magically, successfully, and beautifully. We did not have time to do a tasting before the wedding, but everyone commented on the exceptional taste and quality of the meal. Caroline also served as our photographer and we already have our photos back and they are truly superb.
Many couples have decided to put their weddings on hold due to COVID-19 – I was one of them. Yet, Caroline and her staff helped us create a memorable occasion while staying safe and social distancing. I could go on and on about our experience at Vecoma At the Yellow River, but my recommendation is for you to give them the opportunity to make your wedding day the most incredible day of your life!

Vecoma was the third venue I had toured! I booked my wedding the very next day. It is a beautiful venue! Caroline and her staff were very sweet and accommodating. My wedding was originally scheduled in June but I decided to postpone until October due to COVID. This happened with no hiccups and no extra fees! I used the in house DJ who was great. My guests are also still talking about how good the food was. The venue has many great options to have your ceremony. I chose to have mine on the covered patio and it was amazing! We absolutely loved everything about Vecoma and would definitely recommend it!!Sent on 11/12/2020

My wedding was a dream come true!
I fell in love with Vecoma once I saw it. It was an intimate and beautiful setting! It’s large enough to hold large parties but my husband and I wanted a beautiful venue for a more intimate group. All of our guests loved the venue, food, DJ, we all had a blast! Caroline and the wedding staff really made sure my day was stress free and near perfection. If I could do it all over, I wouldn’t change a thing!Sent on 08/14/2020
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:Vecoma was blessed to have your wedding. Thank you for writing this review. Our staff works hard to make every wedding perfect and you were so easy, nice and lovely. We wish you the most of happiness in your marriage.

5 Stars All Around!
Vecoma is an absolute gem- beautiful location, well maintained facility, stunning interior, and a friendly staff. Caroline and her team were so helpful during the months leading up to the wedding; they answered questions, made me aware of common pitfalls to avoid, and helped us customize the wedding to make it our own. They were also extremely professional, efficient, and informative during the rehearsal and the day of the wedding ensuring plans went smoothly. Further, the food was amazing! Our guests are still raving about the lasagna. We truly appreciate everyone’s hard work and would recommend Vecoma to anyone.Sent on 01/12/2020
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:Thanks so much! We LOVED being a part of your wedding - it was a GORGEOUS fall wedding! Your guests had so much fun at the party and it's great to hear they loved the food! Congratulations and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness!

Magical Wedding at Vecoma
Vecoma was absolutely gorgeous, and the event staff made everything amazing and seamless. The food was fantastic! Our guests are still talking about how magical everything was. My only recommendation for improvement is to put in stairs to get down to the rock for those awesome photos. The photos by the venue photographer have all been gorgeous!Sent on 10/22/2019
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:Hi Jacque! So glad it was MAGICAL for you and thank you so much for your kind words about our staff and food! You look so beautiful in all your photos and we had a ton of fun being part of your big day!

When we first visited Vecoma we immediately knew that this was the place for us to get married. We visited a few other places after but they didn't create the atmosphere Vecoma did - we could visualize getting married there.Sent on 09/05/2019
Caroline and the rest of the staff are so kind and extremely helpful with any questions you have.
Being able to have photos down by the river was one of the main things that drew us to Vecoma - but the entire venue is beautiful and gave us so many unique photo opportunities!
We opted for in house catering and oh my...the lasagna was amazing!
Everything about the night was absolutely perfect and I cannot recommend Vecoma enough!
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:Thank you so much for having your wedding at Vecoma! It was perfect from beginning to end! We loved being a part of your celebration!
Hashaka Davis · Married on 07/28/2019
I do not not know where to begin...from the moment my husband approached the property, we knew it would be the place for us to exchange our vows. Our tour allowed us to view the property and secure our date almost instantly. I was not living in the are so I had to do all of my planning long distance and Vecoma and their staff made the experience very easy and hassle free. Every question I had was answered in a timely manner and every email was returned in a matter of hours. On our actual wedding day the staff was very accommodating to all of our needs. They made sure things went smoothly and were extremely professional. The food was AMAZING.....I cant say enough about this place. I would do it all again at VECOMA.Sent on 08/03/2019

Unmatched beauty and service
My wife and I just got married here on Memorial Day weekend. We looked at soooo many places to get married and never found what we wanted. We were very impressed by the venue here, the staff and the guidance they provided..and yes...the price was unbeatable. This venue has everything you would want and need for your special day, all in one place. Food, Drink, DJ, Photographer, Videographer...EVERYTHING. They don't jack up the price for using their in house services. My wife and I couldn't believe how easy planning our wedding here was. We had zero stress leading up to the day. The day of our wedding, everything went so smooth. The wedding coordinator was outstanding and made sure everyone was ready and knew what to do. We can't speak any higher of this place. If you are looking for a beautiful place to get married with excellent food and outstanding service, you have to get married here!!!Sent on 06/07/2019
Vecoma at the Yellow River's reply:Thanks so much! :) Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and totally perfect! The navy bridesmaid dresses looked gorgeous and the cookie cake was such a great touch! Everyone loves cookies!

Couldn’t have asked for better!!
Caroline and the staff at Vecoma at the Yellow River made our wedding day perfect from start to finish. They were available and quick to respond to our numerous emails throughout the planning process making everything seem effortless and eliminating all stress for us. Caroline easily accommodated every request we had to make our day uniquely ours. The staff worked seamlessly together so that on our wedding day nobody has asking me or my husband all those little detail questions that stress you out. We got numerous compliments on the food, DJ and photographs which were all provided by Vecoma. I could not have asked for a better day and I know that is all thanks to Caroline and her amazing staff!Sent on 06/08/2019

I have loved my experience as a bride with Vecoma! They are super accommodating and so easy to work with. I had a big wedding (over 200 people) and they have done everything in their power to make me feel comfortable and stress free. Also, they are very affordable! They take care of everything from the meal to the table cloths. I highly recommend Vecoma!!Sent on 04/04/2019
