Everything was well planned. The staff was wonderful. The venue made it possible to have the ceremony and reception in one place, which is perfect for out of town guests and family. The decorations, cake, food, wedding coordinator was all included in the wonderful pricing. I had a beautiful wedding!

I was just married July 27, 2013, and my wedding at Defoor Centre was total bliss! Michelle, Davina, and Roxanne were God-sent and made my experience stress-free....who knew this was possible for a bride!! They respect your wishes(and your budget) and make the day yours. There are no time limits, no ridiculous cake cutting fees, etc. I couldn't have picked a better place to host our special day. The venue is beautiful, so not much extra decor is needed. This is a must see venue for all brides!

AMAZING!!!! Let me start off by saying that Michelle and her team are wonderful!!! I had been searching for a venue in our price budget and nobody could match us, it was always a "but or maybe you can skip on this or that!" So I ran into the Defoor Centre and their open house, the food was great, the decorum was lovely, and the staff were superb! We I finally sat down with Michelle and told her what I wanted and what our budget was, she gave me a price including food,decorations, and our wedding cake all under our budget!!!! I could have cried, ok I did!!! Needles to say that she pulled off our wedding without a hitch! Our day went perfect and she was still there to cater to us!!! Never once did tell us no. My review might be a bit long, but u want to make sure that you guys know how awesome this venue and the staff were! I am still getting compliments and I can truly say that The Defoor Centre is the most unique and wonderful place to get married!!!!:)

We had our wedding at The Defoor Center Spetember 2012 and it was perfect! I was so pleased with our wedding venue! The Defoor Center is large enough to hold a huge group but still feels like an intimate venue. It is a very creative, unique space. My guests raved about how delicious the food was! The cake was amazing too! Also the best perk of the Defoor Center was their in house coordinator. She was absolutely amazing and handled all of the day of details! It was a very stress-free day thanks to her! I can not say more great things about this venue!
If you are planning a wedding in Atlanta you need to check out The Defoor Center!!

Everything from service to decor was unbelievable. My wedding was virtually perfect. My husband & I were beyond pleased. The venue coordinators go above & beyond to make the bride's vision a reality. My guests gushed about the food and the cake was to die for! Almost any decorations that they have in house they let you use. This really helps bride's who are on a budget but want all the extras! I can't say enough about The Defoor Centre....I wouldn't have changed a thing.

I had my reception at the Defoor Centre in June, 2012 and could not have been more pleased with everything. I wanted to have a venue different from the typical hotel ballroom scene and fell in love with the Defoor Centre as soon as I saw it. It's beautiful! I was sold once I met with Michelle, the Centre's coordinator. She was very easy going and was adamant that my mother or I should not be responsible for anything the day of the wedding. She took care of everything for us so we could relax and enjoy the day. Everything was perfect and my guests raved about the food and the decor.
My favorite special touch was the personal server who checked on my husband and I through out the reception.
We never had to leave to get anything, she was always there for us to get whatever we needed. We were both very impressed!
If I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing. If you are looking for a venue for an event this should be at the top of your list of places to check out!

My wedding and reception were at The Defoor Centre on April 1, 2012 and it was fantastic. Michelle Davidson, the coordinator, was the most helpful, thoughtful, outgoing person I've ever dealt with. She made all of my visions and dreams come true with a smile on her face. Nothing I asked for was too much or out of reach.
The Defoor Centre handled almost everything for us; food, cake, beverages, and being that it is an art gallery: most of the decor!! The food is exceptional, the drinks were perfect and the cake was delicious.
This was truly stress free wedding planning. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to host a memorable event. We couldn't have been happier!!
