Our wedding reception at Groveland Fairways couldn’t have been any more perfect. From the moment we walked in to the foyer and met Liz, my now husband and I knew it was exactly the right location. We planned our wedding remotely from Atlanta, Georgia and Liz was more than willing to connect via phone, text, or email whenever we had a question. She was more than happy to work with my parents who live in the area, too, to handle some of the details that my husband and I were not able to manage giving the long distance.
The entire planning process with Groveland was smooth and easy given Liz’s mastery of her profession. She is amazing at what she does! Never once did we worry that something would fall off her radar and we relied on her suggestions and thoughts on many of the other vendors we chose for our day. Liz instilled full confidence that our wedding reception at Groveland Fairways was going to be perfect…and it was!
On our wedding day, when we first arrived at Groveland Fairways after our ceremony, Liz gave us a moment to gather our thoughts and re-compose ourselves…then she brought us into the dining room and allowed us some time on our own to take in the beautiful environment/atmosphere she had helped to create for our reception. We were awestruck! We had added LOTS of little details and DIY projects to our day and Liz went above and beyond to ensure that they were all set up and executed flawlessly. Furthermore, she was continuously checking on us, our families and wedding party, and our guests throughout the evening to be sure we had everything we needed and to keep the event moving as planned.
My husband and I are still reliving the memory of our wedding day in our heads…the whole experience was like a fairy tale dream for us. The entire Groveland Fairways venue, including the patio and green space outside, are lovely and created such a beautiful and enjoyable atmosphere for our guests. Liz and the Groveland Fairways family truly added to our happiness (and the happiness of many others) and the beauty of our day. We so deeply appreciate the extra mile(s!) they went to make our day just perfect!
I don't even know where to begin with this review. My contact with Liz started in March of 2012. My fiance and I were planning a September 2013 wedding and had only visited one other venue before visiting the Fairways. We were immediately so comfortable with Liz and loved the venue. After another visit, we decided to put down a deposit.
What I didn't know at that time was just how easy Liz was going to make, literally EVERYTHING, for me. She was incredibly helpful, frank, and attentive in each step of the planning. And the day of? I can't even express how grateful I was to have her there. We didn't have to worry about a single thing. Liz in herself is worth every penny of the venue cost (which, by the way is EXTREMELY reasonable).
My husband and I looked at several different venues but knew as soon as we walked into Groveland Fairways that this was the place that we were going to be married. Everything about our first meeting made us completely comfortable. Liz was great from that first meeting until the end of the night meeting all of my expectations and beyond. I couldn't have asked for anything more from her. Every email and phone call was answered in a timely manner, every worry was calmed, every dream and vision was played out perfectly for our wedding day. Many of our wedding guests have commented how elegant, gorgeous and laid back our wedding venue was. Which is exactly the feel that we were going for. I was able to throw in a little bit of a Red Sox theme without going overboard with the help of Liz.
On the day of our wedding both Liz and Jordan did a great job making sure that our wedding party were where they needed to be when they needed to be there. Both were in the background but close enough so if there was a problem I knew exactly where to find them.
Everyone went above and beyond to make this a special day for us!!!! And we can't thank them enough for all they did.
After our experience at Greoveland Fairways, it became apparent just how important picking the right venue truly is. Hats off to my Son and new Daughter-In-Law. They found this one on their own and if you were there you'd know exactly what I mean. Choosing the perfect venue is the difference between between a good experience and an experience that people talk about for months. That was our experience at Groveland Fairways. Not just a great venue for that medium size wedding (120 attending) more importantly was the flawless execution by Liz and her team. A wedding is truly an event and good event management is key. Propriety, class and insight are all words that come to mind. Combine all of this with the best dining that I have ever experienced at a wedding, I can speak with confidence when I say that a great time was had by all. We're Italian Americans and traditionally put an accent on the food no matter the event. The Caterer they chose was Vinwood Caterers and the compliments on their work have not stopped coming. I recommend Groveland Fairways and Vinwood Caterers without hesitation for anyone searching for that special place for their event.
From the moment we walked into Groveland Fairways and met Liz, my husband and I knew that this was the place for us. Immediately as we walked up the porch stairs and entered the main hallway, we could see our wedding vision unfurling - a beautiful flower arrangement on the main table surrounded by tent cards for the guests, a lovely area inside or a stunning outdoor patio (weather permitting!) for the cocktail hour, and a reception hall with the perfect sized dance floor, a fantastic wooden bar and a beautiful seating layout. Not to mention Liz had prepared one of the guest tables and the sweetheart table for us on short notice so that we could really get the feel of the venue. After that first meeting we were sold and completely happy with our decision to book Groveland as our venue.
Throughout the planning process Liz was great for touch points and best of all was the meeting about two months before our wedding. I was nervous I had forgotten something major but she ran through exactly what we needed to do in those next two months, provided tips and suggestions and completely put my mind at ease that our planning was on track and our day would be perfect. Her professionalism, enthusiasm and organization provided us with no doubts that our wedding would run smoothly and she and her team would make sure of that.
On the day of our wedding (10/18/2014) we did our first look pictures on the outdoor patio and also had our bridal party pictures done outside on the patio, grassy area and out front on the porch. Additionally a new outdoor fireplace had been added and we were able to get all of our family photos taken in front of the fireplace which was a fantastic touch we weren't expecting to have when first booking with Groveland. There are so many great photo opportunities outdoors - it's absolutely a beautiful landscape with little nooks and a bench for unique pictures. It was a perfect option for us and put our minds at ease to see each other in the setting of our venue before walking down the aisle!
We got married at a church right down the street and upon our return to Groveland, the actual reception was flawless. Liz and her team worked extremely hard to make sure everything ran on time, guests were happy and my husband and I knew where we had to be. Not to mention she made sure our signature drink was waiting for us and reminded us to eat - which you can forget about with everything that's going on! In terms of decor, the entryway was exactly how we had envisioned it, the guest tables were set up perfectly and were comfortable for our guests and the bar was in a great location and run very efficiently - we didn't see a large line there the whole night. The dance floor was also the perfect size and worked well with our DJ set up right next to it. There are so many little details that go into planning a wedding and Groveland Fairways was able to accommodate and highlight all of ours. Thank you so much to Liz and her team - go see them and you will be sure to have a wedding day to remember.
I remember when I began planning my wedding. My husband and I had a mutual agreement about what we're looking for within a vendor of any sort. It was someone who was there to help in any way they could but would not forget that this was our day.
That was 100% Liz and the Groveland Fairways. I’ll be honest; from the outside initially I thought to myself, “Nope, this isn’t the place.” I was envisioning a castle in the clouds for my wedding and it didn’t fit the bill.
We walked in and my whole attitude changed. The front foyer was gorgeous, the banquet hall was beautifully set, the outside had a perfect sitting area equipped with a fireplace, and the walkway to the outside ceremony site was perfect.
Liz was kind and listened to what was important to us; she gave us ideas but didn’t force anything on us. She was graceful and poised and perfect. Plus, she was going to be there every step of the way; my built in wedding coordinator!
What was most impressive was that night I emailed her at 11:30pm on a Friday to tell her we were choosing Groveland Fairways, assuming she’d get back to me when she could, probably Monday morning. No, Liz emailed me back at 11:32pm to congratulate me and give me next steps. That was Liz through the entire process, prompt to answer and with clear next steps. Her recommendations were on point from the bakery to the DJ.
If you want a seamless, beautiful wedding then look no further than the Groveland Fairways. You may not get the castle in the clouds but I can guarantee you will be treated like royalty every step of the way.
My husband and I are thrilled that we chose Groveland Fairways for our wedding! We had a good feeling about the venue from the moment we stepped in and were greeted by Liz (head event coordinator). She was friendly, professional and made us feel comfortable right off the bat. We appreciated the fact that she never pressured us to choose Groveland Fairways and gave us space and time to look around their indoor and outdoor venue aspects. During the planning process, Liz was very helpful and responsive. Her guidance was of great value to us, as we didn't always know exactly what we wanted. The day of our wedding, each piece went seamlessly. My groom and I felt relaxed and confident that Liz and the team were all on the same page. We didn't have to worry about anything ; from the table set-up to the end of the night clean-up, it was all taken care of quietly and neatly. We would highly recommend Groveland Fairways for any special event.
As a new bride, on a strict budget I was bent on sticking to my guns! Groveland was the second place I looked and the last place I looked. I fell in love with everything as Liz went through room by room describing wha my wedding day could be if I had it there at groveland fairways. Their landscaping was under construction and they were removing the driving range at the time I visited and through all that Liz was able to help me picture what the vision was for the future of the venue. Liz was nothing short of amazing! As busy as wedding season can be she made me and my now husband feel as though we were the only ones that mattered, truly making our days up to and our wedding day as and even more special than I could imagine! They take pride with every detail you can or may not think of, set everything up making your visions truly come true! It rained all morning on our wedding day which hindered us from having our ceremony in their beautiful outside area however Liz called me to check in when the rain stopped and made their fireside room beyond beautiful for our ceremony! Liz and her team are truly amazing and truly are what sold me on the venue from my first visit! Thank you so much to Liz, Jordan and vinwood caterers for making our day a lifetime memory!

Love, love, love this place. The staff at Groveland Fairways really love what they do and it shows! Liz and Jordan are absolutely wonderful and always get back to you within a reasonable time via email or phone. The site itself is breathtaking and the service is amazing. Professionalism, quality, cost effective. Everyone and everything here is worth every penny. I would recommend Groveland to anyone!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Groveland Fairways on August 29, 2014. We had visited several venues prior to Groveland Fairways and had just not found the place to have our special event. As soon as we met Liz (the event coordinator) and viewed the grounds we knew that this was the perfect location to have our wedding. Liz was phenomenal throughout the entire process. I’m not much of a planner and tend to be indecisive but from the start it was obvious Liz was passionate, organized and she really helped make our day as special as it was. Our guests are still talking about how fantastic the event was. We had our ceremony onsite, outside and our cocktail hour was on the patio. The staff at the Fairways lit the outdoor fireplace at night which many of our guests enjoyed while others enjoyed spending time in the photo booth in the fireside room and others spend their time on the dance floor. We had Vinewood cater our wedding and were thrilled with the stations that we chose. Liz and her staff were so accommodating throughout the day and it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without their help. If you are looking for a gorgeous venue that offers the option of onsite ceremonies, an exceptional staff and beautiful grounds than Groveland Fairways is the choice for you! Liz and her staff will help you throughout the entire process and make sure your day is as beautiful as you imagined. We had an absolutely perfect wedding, and it couldn’t have been without the help of Liz and Jordan. Choosing the Fairways for our wedding venue was one of the best choices we made during our planning process. Liz, her staff, the venue and the day surpassed our expectations and for that we will be forever grateful! Thank you Liz and Jordan for making our day extraordinary it is a day we will truly always cherish!
We visited a few wedding venues and this was the one that won us over with its beautiful yet private grounds and gorgeous hall, it felt like a very beautiful home the first time we walked in and Liz made us feel very "at home." She really got along well with my mother, who can be difficult to please, but this is just a testament to how wonderful Liz really is at what she does. She always made us feel like she was giving us the best advice. She really did an amazing job on the day of to make sure that everything went so smoothly and was so pleasant and wonderful during the process. The venue and the day overall surpassed all of my expectations and I had the best day ever! Thank you for everything!
Liz won us over the first time we met with her - she was so easy to talk to and organized and we knew she would go above and beyond to make our wedding perfect (and she did!) We received so many compliments on how wonderful the wedding was and how smoothly everything went. Liz made sure that everything went according to schedule and she (and her staff) were wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process. The outdoor ceremony area and patio are beautiful and were perfect for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was, it far exceeded my expectations!
I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking! Not only for the great venue and location, but Liz (the coordinator) is amazing to work with. Being our first wedding we had no idea what we were doing. She was always available to answer questions and keep us on track. Our wedding day was phenomenal! We couldn't have pictured it anywhere else. We planned over 2 years and on the day they pulled everything together exactly how we wanted. It was better than we could have hoped! All of our guests were amazed at the venue. It truly is a hidden gem!
Groveland Fairways is an absolutely stunning venue to hold your wedding. Liz, the main coordinator is absolutely fantastic! As soon as we contacted Liz about the showing, we knew we were in for a treat. She is very easy to speak with and answers all questions quickly and concisely, whether by phone or email. We worked with Liz from November 2012 until our wedding in June 2014 and during that time we understood how passionate she is about making sure every detail at your wedding is absolutely perfect. She is the consummate professional! Jordan, the second coordinator, whom we met at the rehearsal, was excellent and very helpful during the wedding.
Groveland Fairways is a beautiful venue and with a great coordinator it makes it even better. When we first entered Groveland Fairways we could tell that this venue was very different from the 10 venues we toured prior. It is exceptionally clean with not a speck of dirt or dust anywhere. The air inside is clean and refreshing. The reason for this is that they clean immediately after every wedding and nothing is left to sit until the next day.
At Groveland Fairways, there is a choice between two preferred caterers. Liz highly recommended Vinwood Catering to cater a gluten free wedding. Between Liz and Vinwood, the menu turned out amazing and everyone enjoyed the night. If you are looking for a venue and caterer that really knows dietary concerns and allergies, this is the place for you!
We were planning an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, and if rain had been in the forecast, there is a gorgeous space called the Fireside Room for an indoor ceremony. It was the only indoor space we would even consider for a ceremony. It has a stunning fireplace to compliment the space. Groveland Fairways is modern and has a very homey feeling. The owners of the property are always making improvements and are the nicest people. When we booked Groveland in 2012 we knew it was an amazing venue, but it got even better as they continually made improvements. The new patio and outdoor fire place is an amazing area to share with your guests and feels just right.
We had an absolutely perfect wedding day, and it couldn’t have been without the help of Liz and Jordan. Choosing Groveland Fairways for our wedding venue was one of the best choices we made during our wedding planning. If you are looking for a gorgeous wedding venue with an experienced and exceptional staff with a small-town feel, then Groveland Fairways is the place for you. Do not think twice about meeting with Liz at the venue. Once you meet with her and tour the grounds, you’ll realize there isn’t a better venue around. Thank You so much Liz and Groveland Fairways for the absolutely amazing wedding day!
Groveland is a beautiful venue but Liz (the coordinator) is the reason I chose this place. She is so helpful; getting back to you in less than 24 hours, making suggestions to make your day even better and best of all taking responsibility for making the venue beautiful day of so you don't have to stress because you know you're in capable hands.
I had never been to Groveland Fairways and my fiancé and I had already decided on another venue the day before I went to visit. When I walked into this place (to meet with a caterer)...I just felt at home. It was so warm and inviting and I assumed far above our budget. Just out of curiosity, I asked what they charge and if our date was available. I was shocked (seriously shocked) with the response and immediately called my fiancé to see if he'd be okay with a change of plans. The value was amazing. I was introduced to Liz who was energetic, friendly, attentive and so helpful. We were not sure how we would be received by any venue as we were trying to create a very inexpensive and fun wedding with a sophisticated and warm environment. Liz did not seem to have any problem accommodating our burger and chicken finger/muppet/Disney/Yankee v Red Sox themed wedding and she was definitely able to make it all look very elegant and fun. I would highly recommend this venue to any couple. The staff was excellent and the value was extraordinary.
After looking at a few wedding venues and not being impressed, we were hesitant to check out any more. The moment we walked in to Groveland Fairways and met with Liz we knew it was a perfect fit! Liz was friendly, professional, and SUPER responsive! Despite my endless questions, she would always email me back with her suggestions and recommendations within 24 hours and even called me when the venue decided to no longer use a specific vendor that I had been thinking about using. We booked our venue over 1 1/2years in advance due to my hectic schedule and Liz continued to check in periodically to make sure we were on track with our plans. In addition, she made a point to meet with us in person 1 month before and a week before the wedding to review the details, update and make changes, and remind me of any tasks that still needed to be addressed. The night of our wedding she was calm and moved effortlessly throughout the evening helping whenever needed, she even stepped in (professionally) when she could see I was frustrated with another vendor. Liz and her assistant, Jordan, were wonderful during the wedding and did a great job setting up the candy bar as well as taking it down and packaging everything away for us at the end of the night. Thank you for making our wedding amazing!
I cannot say enough about Groveland Fairways. When my husband and I were searching for a venue for our 9-28-13 wedding we walked in and "felt like we were home". It is an absolutely stunning site. It feels so warm and cozy while still being elegant and classy. The wedding coordinator, Liz is a dream to work with. She was there for me every step of the way and is simply amazing in helping to set up my many DIY projects and to make my vision come alive. She's very professional, full of advice and is always available. I love her and I love Groveland Fairways! In the words of ALL of my guest...my wedding was simply AH-MAZING and I thank Groveland Fairways for everything! I want to do it all over again :)
Our wedding was absolutely perfect on a day where the weather was not cooperating at all. The site was decorated beautifully and the decor was executed even better than I imagined. I still have guests talking about how much they enjoyed their food. The venue really is beautiful. Liz and her team are incredible!! Answered all of my questions promptly and really made sure my husband and I were enjoying ourselves as well. Thank you so much for our beautiful day Liz!!

This is by far the most amazing wedding venue out there!!! Not only is the venue itself gorgeous and owners are constantly working hard to make it more perfect the wedding coordinator Liz is AMAZING!!!! When we first looked at the Venue we were instantly in love, then when we sat down and talked with Liz we were SOLD! She is nothing shy of perfect, she has great ideas, recommendations, and answers your questions so quickly! Working with her for the past year and a half was so much fun! Our wedding day came and she literally thought of everything! We had an outdoor ceremony and it was windy, Liz fixed our flowers which were on pedestals because they kept blowing over, she hid me from my groom very well and gave us awesome ideas for pictures! She also decided to set up an extra bar table outside to eliminate lines when guests left the ceremony! She literally thought of everything and went above and beyond for us which I know she does for every couple!! Groveland fairways is a perfect wedding venue!! Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful it was inside and out! We can't thank Liz and the owners enough for everything they provided us with on our wedding day :)
