    Vecoma truly was the perfect place for me and my husband to tie the knot and celebrate with all of our friends and family! Caroline and her staff worked with us from day 1 to ensure that everything went smoothly. We fell in love with the venue, which is nestled right along the Yellow River, and even better, we LOVED the newly renovated outdoor arbor and walkway for our ceremony. The venue truly is breathtakingly beautiful! Vecoma’s staff was very professional and accommodating and made everything run smoothly throughout the entire wedding planning process. Vecoma is your one stop shop as they provide beautiful décor for the ceremony and reception, delicious food at an affordable cost, and even better, the venue’s owner, Caroline, is an amazing photographer that knows how to capture all of the precious moments of your big day. If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Atlanta area, I would look no further! Vecoma is the PERFECT place for you and your spouse to say “I Do”!

    Vecoma is a wonderful place that will make every wedding amazing.
    We had our ceremony down at the river and it was just how I imagined it. The whole staff was welcoming and polite and if you needed anything they were right there.
    Caroline took amazing pictures and we can't wait to see the rest of them, also the DJ was able to get everyone to dance and have fun. The food was really tasty too.
    Vecoma made our special day truly worth remembering not only for me and my husband but for every single one of our guest that are still texting us what a great time they had.

    My husband and I had an April wedding at this location. It was the first and only venue we saw because the price, location and everything that they included was better than I could have gotten anywhere else. I called several venues prior to calling the Vecoma and the Vecoma was are truly all inclusive. They include all the linens tables, chairs, set up and breakdown, food and beverage. The ceremony site is beautiful, the reception hall is elegant and the food was great. My guests are still talking about both the venue and the food. They are also very professional and accommodating and affordable. We feel we got our moneys worth and could not be more pleased. The only things we chose to provide on our own was the entertainment, wedding cake, videographer and florist. we used the house photographer and they did a great job! I highly recommend it.

    We had our wedding at Vecoma at the Yellow River on a Sunday in the late afternoon, and it was perfect! While shopping for venues, we visited Vecoma first not really prepared with questions or with a concrete idea of what kind of wedding we wanted. After visiting other venues, we would always gravitate toward Vecoma. After many venue tours, we decided to choose this quaint, charming venue for its beautiful scenery and wonderful customer service. If you hold your ceremony in the back lawn, you can hear the rushing waters of the Yellow River. Their venue is great to have an outdoor wedding, and they can easily move outdoor weddings to their spacious deck or inside the venue in the chance of rain. For our wedding, Vecoma just finished building their beautiful stone walkway and arbor, which is great for pictures and for ladies walking in heels. They are very willing to accommodate requests you have while wedding planning. They also have such creative ideas if you have a wedding theme. I cannot say enough how fantastic Caroline was in helping us with the planning and providing her photography services.

    Both our parents were raving about the food and particularly about the phenomenal staff. My father and mother-in-law absolutely loved how Vecoma staff was so attentive while setting up for the wedding and throughout the evening – they would respond to all our requests with a smile.

    The venue offers many in-house services, which I would highly recommend. DJ Kirk was more than happy to carry out my requests for the events during the reception. He even made an appearance at the rehearsal to play the ceremony songs. Caroline’s work in photography is also stunning! I cannot stop looking through her pictures.

    They gave prompt responses to all my questions, especially during the week of the wedding. They really care about making the bride and guests happy. Thank you, Vecoma staff, for making our wedding simply amazing and so memorable!

    If you have visited other sites/venues and feel overwhelmed with options, rules, pricing, and what seems like an ever increasing budget, then you need to check out Vecoma! Go to a Saturday open house and you will instantly see the differences. There is no pressure, walk the grounds, look at previous weddings, talk to staff, price out items, look at menus, and be relaxed. The venue is stunning, but what truly makes the venue is the staff. I solidified Vecoma as my choice in less than 30 minutes, something I had agonized over for months! In terms of pricing, you can make any budget work here! It is clear cut, nothing hidden, easily explained, you know up front what you are dealing with, and the easiest payment plans you will find. They have flexible menu choices, customization, and bar packages with the best pricing. They do not "nickel and dime" you to death, there is no charge for turning on the twinkle lights, you can use their mirrors, votives, fishbowls, wood centerpieces and anything that is considered a "house item" FREE of charge. They give you the freedom to express yourself in decorations, you can use any vendor, and bring your own cakes with NO cutting fee! I had 4 cakes and 5 pies, 9 total and NO EXTRA CHARGE. They provided the cutting utensils, sliced, and served! It is the little things here, the level of personal service, the relaxed atmosphere, the freedom to be yourself that make it truly stand apart. The staff are gracious, answered tons of questions, quickly responded to emails, and made being a bride EASY. On the day of we didn't realize ALL of the staff come together to help you set up and put out decorations, I was amazed! The food was incredible and people are still commenting on it! DJ/photos they have in-house if you choose, making things easy, and the prices can't be beat! All included in your invoicing! Check them out, you will be amazed, it will be perfect, your guests will be in awe, and your wallet will thank you!

    If you are looking for a place that will be able to take care of you completely this is the best. Our wedding was less stressful because we had it at Vecoma. Go to their vendor fair and ask for recommendations. It makes it so easy. They know how to do weddings. We had a week of rain and still can't imagine not married on the porch. Also, cannot believe their great pricing even when we added on a bunch of a extras. This included DJ, Food, Photography, Space, Tables, Chairs, Linens. Best deal ever.

    Let me start by saying, we are a gay couple and the staff never blinked an eye. We never felt out of place or uncomfortable. Everyone was just totally wonderful and made us feel nothing but welcome and special on our wedding day.
    Everything was perfect! The staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. From set up to clean up, they were on the spot making sure everything went smoothly. They train their new employees to the point that we didn't realize it was one persons first event! Everyone was fantastic!
    People always say that the couple never gets to eat at their own wedding, but the staff did everything in their power (short of force feeding us) to make sure we could eat! They brought appetizers out to us when we had pictures to take, they made a plate for us so we wouldn't have to stand in line.
    The venue was beautiful, the staff was helpful and amazing.
    We would recommend this venue 100%. From the first meeting with them, to the wedding day, they answered all questions we had through email quickly, and they never made us feel like we were bothering them. They were always helpful and friendly.
    The food was beyond amazing! Everyone has been saying how good the food was at the buffet. Most wedding food is dry and tasteless. NOT VECOMA, their food was just like you sat down and ordered it from a restaurant. It was delicious! It was so good, quite a few people went back for second helpings!
    We used the venues in-house DJ and photographer. The DJ was amazing. He helped us stay on time, get everyone dancing, and just made sure everyone had a great time. The photographer was amazing! She took the ideas we had, ran with them and made them work!
    We have already started planning our 10 year anniversary party, and it's going to be at Vecoma.

    We instantly fell in love with Vecoma from the first time we walked into their doors. Not only is it a gorgeous venue, but the staff are some of the friendliest ever! We are a gay couple, and going somewhere that made us feel welcome was very important. The payment options that were set up were great, and the staff always got back to our emails in a timely manner. We were able to arrange the layout of tables to the way we wanted it, we were allowed to bring anything we wanted to the venue, so we brought uplights. The event planner worked with us to customize a menu that included things we wanted. The day of the wedding, the staff went above and beyond. Most people say you don't ever have time at your wedding to eat. The staff here made sure that we did. They brought us hors d'oeuvres while we were taking photos, and they made a plate for us before any of the guests could even start lining up for the buffet. Our guests are still raving about the food, the music, and the venue. We used the in house DJ, DJ Kirk, and he was fantastic! We also used their in house photographer, and her pictures from our day are amazing! We could not be happier with this venue and we are already planning our anniversary party to be hosted at this venue. This is truly a magical venue that is intimate and breath taking.

    If you are seeking a private & intimate venue then Vecoma is THE ONE! Even if you have 150 guests it feels so quaint & intimate, yet plenty of room for large crowds! It is very beautiful inside & outside, which is why we chose this venue for our wedding. We wanted the ceremony to be outside & reception inside; however, it was raining the day of our wedding & the staff did a fabulous job creating the most beautiful ceremony & reception both taking place inside. I was not upset at all about the weather once I saw how beautiful the inside was setup for the ceremony. After the ceremony concluded they flipped the room so quick, while everyone enjoyed cocktail hour on the deck, nobody even noticed. The staff was amazing to work with & made our wedding day more perfect than I could ever dream of. It was simply beautiful :-)
    We used in-house catering, photography, DJ, & their referred florist. Everything flowed so seamlessly that I had no worries about the logistics of everything coming together. Using their in-house services & referrals for other vendors allowed us enjoy the day & take in every moment. It was stress free & we had the time of our lives!!!

    We were married on a Friday evening at Vecoma, and it was absolutely perfect in every way. We used their photographer and DJ and were thrilled with both (especially Caroline's beautiful photos!!). Vecoma made planning easy, as so many of the details are included, and we always felt like our wedding was important to every staff member. I did not worry about one detail the day of the wedding, and everything was beautiful. The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, and everyone had a ball. Not only is it an absolutely gorgeous venue (with not one but two lovely backup ceremony locations in case of rain - which we had!), it is the best value hands down in the Atlanta area. Our wedding looked like it cost twice what we paid. I can't say enough good things about Vecoma!

    I can't say enough nice things about my daughter's wedding at Vecoma. The location, the facilities, the attention to detail was perfect. Every member of the staff was friendly and attentive. I did most of the planning from FL and really appreciate the help of Caroline and her team in planning it. Every detail was carefully thought through. The food was amazing! The bar selection was great!

    Everything exceeded our expectations. It was absolutely the perfect wedding.

    We used Vecoma for our wedding in early September. It was a Sunday morning wedding with a brunch reception. We decided to use all of the services that Vecoma offered including the DJ, catering, and photography. Caroline and Judith were extremely responsive leading up to the big day and made sure everything to the very last detail went the way we wanted.

    The venue was beautiful and the perfect place for a rustic wedding. Because all of the services were run by Vecoma, the wedding went remarkably smoothly. We started with their brunch buffet option, but they allowed us to replace some of their brunch items with more substantial lunch foods and we added several stations, including belgian waffles, grits, biscuits, omelettes, and bloody marys. The DJ was very professional throughout the entire reception and knew how to improvise to get people on the dance floor when things started dying down. The photography went great as well. They had two photographers taking pictures throughout the wedding which allowed us to get most of the bridal party pictures out of the way before the ceremony, and left only the family pictures for after. All of the pictures have come out beautifully.

    We definitely would recommend this venue for others, especially for those on a budget!

    The staff at Vecoma at the Yellow River were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. The total cost for the wedding/reception was very reasonable. The staff are very professional, as well as friendly. The photographer Caroline Tucker, took such beautiful pictures that we will treasure for years to come. She knows all the perfect places for those perfect storybook photos. I would highly recommend this venue for Weddings or other social gatherings. It's definitely your one stop shop that offers professional photography, DJ, catering, bar, and more!!! Don't pass this gem up if you want professional personalized service with a smile!!!

    PERFECT place for my daughters "Fairytale Wedding" Everything and everyone was AWESOME!!! Caroline and her staff were the BEST!! I couldn't of imagined having my daughters wedding any other place. The grounds were beautiful, the arbor was stunning and of corse the river in the background was simply breath taken. If your thinking about the perfect place to tie the knot Vecoma at Yellow River will not let you down!!!

    Our wedding was Friday evening May 8, 2015 for about 100 people. Ms. Caroline was amazing from beginning to end. She and her staff were very informative, professional, and helpful. Everything was all inclusive and very economical. They introduce you to some great vendors as well and make your entire wedding planning very simple. I highly recommend. My guests couldn't stop complimenting how beautiful the venue was and how great of service was rendered.

    Vecoma at the Yellow River is the BEST place to host a wedding. The family-owned venue is an affordable one-stop-shop. The staff are very professional, helpful, and responsive. The staff remembers your name and the date of your wedding. Vecoma at the Yellow River's staff remove the headache from wedding planning by having their own photographer, DJ, and caterer (all are very affordable).The staff really works hard to meet the bride and grooms needs. We chose the Italian Fest Dinner and the food was great! Our guests had more than enough food to eat. The venue does not need much decoration especially outside. All of our guests at the wedding LOVED the venue. Hopefully, some will book Vecoma following our wedding. My husband and I truly thank Vecoma at the Yellow River's Staff for helping us make Friday, May 1 a memorable day for ourselves and family and friends.

    Matt and I got married last month and couldn't be happier with Vecoma! Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful it was! Honestly, there isn't one thing I would have changed. Vecoma is an all inclusive wedding venue. Caroline, the owner, and her husband were our photographers and our pictures were WONDERFUL! Vecoma also provides and food and beverages. We went with the Cajun menu and were very happy. Their DJ, Kirk, was also fantastic. Caroline was helpful, flexible, and knowledgeable. Getting married at Vecoma was easy, beautiful and memorable. I would definitely recommend it. And, not to mention super affordable!! Just outside of Atlanta. Definitely worth checking out!

    Vecoma has been a great wedding facility to work with. They have been there to answer all questions that me and my fiancé have had to this point. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Vecoma has been very accommodating and flexible. We couldn't have picked a better venue to host our wedding as we anxiously await our special day.

    Vecoma was perfect for our reception, and they were so nice to give us a to-go box of food at the end of the night. DJ Kirk did a great job entertaining my salsa-loving family, and use all of the songs we gave him.

    I could not have asked for a better venue to have my wedding! They were so easy to work with, very responsive and dependable, and the venue itself is absolutely gorgeous no matter what time of year. People are constantly telling me how much they loved our wedding and venue. If I could go back I would definitely choose them again!

    Vecoma is a great venue! We loved the nature and the beauty this place has. Caroline was very helpful and patient with us. The food was soooo good! The Italian feast, yum my family can't stop talking about it. The wedding photos that Caroline did for us were spectacular! She is really an awesome photographer and I would definately recommend her services to anyone.

    I wouldn't have had my wedding anywhere else. Caroline, Judith, and Savannah were very open to our unique ideas and the only venue willing to try something out of thier comfort zone. Carloline was a calming voice, she eased our anxiety and let us truly expierence an amazing day. The food was delicious, and they treated us like royalty on our wedding day!
    Ryan, however, gets an extra star, he was our reception coordinator and he was amazing, He made sure our dinner plates were made, our glasses always full, helped with the sparkler send off and just really made our wedding that much more enjoyable.
