My fiancé and I were researching wedding venues on Wedding Wire and we happened upon White Columns Country Club. We decided to drive-by on a whim. The drive to the club is beautiful, scattered with horse pastures and colorful dogwood trees. It is nestled in a quiet, tree-lined community with million dollar homes. We show-up, unannounced, just to take a peek and we were greeted by Lisa Lugo, the on-site event coordinator. She was in preparation for a wedding that night. We were not expecting her to stop preparation to host us, but, she did! She gave us a tour of the facility, run-down on prices, and some available dates. WCCC books up fast, which is no surprise because the grounds are beautiful and the price is affordable. We went to several other venues that day (We had scheduled appointments) but there was no other place that we felt more welcome than WCCC. We booked our wedding that day! When the day came, it was so smooth and not a single thing went wrong. If it did, I have no idea about it. Lisa and the staff had everything under control. We had the ceremony at The Swim & Tennis Pavilion and this facility comes out stunning in wedding photos! During our reception, Lisa had everything scheduled down to the minute and it flowed organically. I didn’t get the chance to eat anything that night, but they sent us home with doggy bags and the food was good! I had zero stress planning my wedding day with Lisa’s help. She was always accessible and accommodating for any of our special requests. WCCC has beautiful décor and there is so much included in the wedding package including all of the table settings. Overall, picking WCCC was one of our best decisions. You get so much bang for your buck. It is scenic and you can get breathtaking photos almost anywhere on the grounds. The staff is the ultimate factor in our wedding day being so perfect. Lisa and her staff are amazing and you want them on your wedding day team. I highly recommend WCCC for your venue!Sent on 10/12/2014

White Columns Country Club and its staff were awesome. Lisa was with us every step of the way during the planning process. She made great recommendations about vendors, décor ideas, and how to best utilize the club. There was no point during the process that we felt uncertain about anything. Lisa worked with our wedding planner and vendors to ensure our vision was achieved. The entire staff made us feel welcome and treated us as if we were lifelong members of the club. We toured 4 other venues in person and at least 15 on the internet before we found and fell in love with White Columns. This is the best value, friendliest, most professional weeding/event venue in the metro Atlanta area.Sent on 06/13/2013
White Columns Country Club's reply:Thank you for your wonderful words! I loved working with and getting to know you both. Wishing you years and years of happiness!

White Columns made our dreams come true! Lisa and staff provided us with advice and insights on how to save money and still achieve the vision that we had in mind. Lisa was with us every step of the way during the planning process which made us feel really good. The entire staff made us feel like we were lifelong members of the country club and went out of their way to accommodate our needs. We toured several wedding venues before we found and fell in love with Lisa and White Columns.Sent on 06/20/2013

Lisa Lugo, the Events Coordinator at the White Columns Country Club was GREAT! Scheduling meetings, tastings, etc. was very easy. She had brilliant suggestions for our wedding (table set up, ceremony set-up, food, etc.). The facility was perfect and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were worry free on our wedding day thanks to Lisa and the White Columns Country Club!Sent on 06/13/2013
White Columns Country Club's reply:Thank you for your great review! I'm so happy to have worked with you and to get to know your family in the process. What a wonderful, intimate ceremony and reception filled with love.

My wedding was a dream come true! White Columns Country Club was the perfect place to have our ceremony and reception. I had always dreamed of an outdoor ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful on the covered verandah. Reception turned out great too. The food was delicious (our guests are still talking about how good the food was) and the staff was so awesome! We looked at many different places before deciding on WCCC and it was the best decision ever! Lisa was amazing to work with - my husband and I loved her from the first time we met her. She was so helpful, has a ton of experience and tips, very responsive with phone calls and emails, extremely professional and was willing to meet with us as many times as we needed to make sure all of the details were perfect for our special day. I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and the staff at WCCC and I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!Sent on 07/15/2013
White Columns Country Club's reply:This was one of the most beautiful weddings here at White Columns Country Club. Not only were the bride and groom beautiful inside and out, but they had a gorgeous vision for their ceremony and reception. This couple and their families were a pleasure to get to know and we're happy they chose to begin their life together at White Columns!

This was a beautiful venue to have our wedding and reception at. It is elegant yet relaxed. Stunning pictures. The staff there is great too. Lisa works very hard to make sure it all goes smoothly and she is good at what she does. A beautiful venue, delicious food, pleasant people combination makes one perfect wedding. One minor hiccup was one of the main dishes, chicken we had at the tasting was not breaded but on the day of the wedding, it came out breaded. It was still good, just wasn't what we expected. We never brought it up or complained about it because it turned out fine for us but some people might have a problem with that. Chef there was very nice and friendly too. Everyone did really enjoy their food. and again Lisa goes above and beyond to make you happy. We had our perfect wedding there.Sent on 02/09/2014

WOW! Lisa Lugo and the staff at White Columns Country Club were incredible! My guests raved about the food and venue! It was a magical night! My reception was a little different from most, as we had a small ceremony in Destin, FL the week before and had just arrived home from our honeymoon the day before the reception. With the attention to detail and quick responses from Lisa, I felt that I could go to my ceremony and honeymoon and come back to exactly what I wanted a nice reception for my guests to enjoy and celebrate with my husband and me! I have worked with events in the past, and I was prepared for little details to go wrong. Nothing on the WC side of my reception was wrong. Lisa and the White Columns staff were so accommodating for us. I felt like I was Lisa’s only client when we were together. Lisa listened to my visions and made them a reality! I highly recommend this venue to any bride that is willing to let someone handle details on your wedding day and let you enjoy yourself and your time with your guests!Sent on 09/26/2012

We were so impressed with our overall experience at White Columns. Lisa was incredibly helpful and had wonderful ideas to plan for the ceremony and reception. The ceremony was held at the veranda and was beautiful. Lisa arranged for the nearby tennis courts and pool to close before the ceremony so that there wouldn't be any loud noise as well. The reception was held at the clubhouse and went off without a hitch (all thanks to Lisa and the staff at WC!!). The food was amazing and all of our special requests exceeded expectations. The night could not have been more perfect! We would host our wedding again at WC in a heartbeat.Sent on 06/20/2012

I would be happy to recommend Lisa Lugo and White Columns to anyone considering a wedding in the greater Atlanta area. The venue was perfect but more importantly, Lisa made all of the difference in the world. She was professional, responsive, patient and conscientious. The whole staff at White Columns were terrific.Sent on 04/02/2012
My daughter was very happy and both she and her new husband considered the whole affair to have been "perfect". I couldn't be happier.

I absolutely have no words to describe how much Lisa and White Columns Country Club exceeded our expectations. Lisa was absolutely fantastic and such an incredible person to work with. The venue was gorgeous, reasonably priced, fun and the perfect size. I am at the age where all of my friends are getting married and each and every one of them has told me that our venue and the staff made our wedding by far the most fun and enjoyable. It was such a pleasure to work with Lisa, as well as the entire staff there (bartenders, chefs, etc). They really go above and beyond and I would never think twice about using them if I could go back and start over. It was INCREDIBLE and everything went perfectly, thanks to Lisa. She thought of things I could never in a million years think of, and she did everything with such excitment. One of the most genuine people I have ever met, and they all made my wedding day better than I could have ever dreamed!!Sent on 04/03/2012

Wedding at this venue was amazing!! We had such a great time! The food was also amazing, however my wife and I did not get to enjoy much food that night and had hopes of having a "to-go box" come with us in the limo after we left the venue. The "to-go box" never made it in the limo and the staff claimed that we did not want it and we told them to throw it out which was a lie. With that being the only complaint everything else went very well and everyone had a great time.Sent on 07/17/2013
White Columns Country Club's reply:Your wedding was absolutely beautiful (and so was the bride!) I'm so sorry about your to-go box, but would love to have you both back to the Club for dinner on us! Call me anytime and I'd love to set it up for you.
