My husband and I have never, ever experienced such a glorious event in our entire life! I am proud to say it was our daughter's wedding that was held at Chota Falls in the north Georgia mountains. This venue is a spectacle to be desired. The natural beauty of the vineyards,... Read More waterfalls,crystal blue water feature, adorable picturesque white chapel on the hillside, the exqusite villas decorated to perfection with fine bedding and luxurious towels and robes were decadent! Our families came in from all over the U.S. It was lovely that we could all be together for the weekend on the Chota property. The wedding planner and coordinator Lawanna and her husband Henry Luther who is the in house florist extraordinaire, treated us like royalty the entire weekend. Calm, collected was Lawanna's demeanor that held us all together like glue. Henry's floral creations turned the reception hall into a true fairytale to go right along with the personality of the property!!! George, Wayne and Roxy are the staff that was by our side the entire weekend; day and night they were there to assist,ever so happily assist us! These three thought of things before we even realized there was a need! I hope I am not forgetting anyone! You all deserve an applause, or a much needed rest! But I know there are more brides coming your way! BUT, most importantly, when we were there you made us feel like this was the only wedding, most beautiful wedding and the best wedding EVER! Thank you for that! Chota Falls is AMAZING, CLASSY and a little slice of Heaven! Lawanna and Henry, Jeff and I say "thank you" from the bottom of our hearts. Never, ever did we imagine we could put on such a beautiful wedding for our daughter! L & J

I saw Chota Falls in a magazine and immediately knew I wanted to be married there. The grounds are vast and exquisite. The staff was so nice and accommodating. My one small complaint was that the wedding planner did not always answer my emails/calls pre-wedding in a timely... Read More manner. Everything was perfect for the big day, however. We did not experience any glitches. This venue truly gave me my fairy tale wedding! I would highly recommend this venue.

Amazing food!!!

We were really worried when we went for our food tasting because we didn't really like anything. The caterer at the venue worked with us on the menu and the rehearsal dinner and reception food was excellent!! If you book with Chota, you have to use their caterer, but she is... Read More wonderful.

Chota Falls was truly my dream come true wedding. Everything about this place is magical, beautiful, and a absolute true fairytale. I planned my wedding from out of state & majority of my guests traveled from afar to this destination. They were absolutely amazed by not only this... Read More whole place in general, but several positive comments about the decor, very tasty food, & the amazing staff that help run it all. Lawanna & Henry the coordinators at Chota helped make our day absolutely perfect. They went above & beyond in every detail to make the dream come true wedding we hoped for. Even better, they helped make the whole planning process easy & stress free. Henry's talented eye for designing your decor & floral arrangements for our special day was more than I could of imagined. Truly the best in Georgia. This whole place is a hidden gem that will sweep everyone off their feet. Want to go back & relive it all again! Wonderful experience in every way & so grateful for everyone at Chota who helped make it possible! Bride- Katelyn

We recently got married at Chota Falls, and everything was handled beautifully from beginning to end. My now husband and I were living in Georgia when we decided on Chota, but he got transferred to Michigan for work, and it became a destination wedding for us! Lawanna and Henry... Read More were so great. They worked with from a distance, and made me feel like everything would be exactly like I requested, and it was! We had the ceremony in the beautiful chapel, and it was amazing! The reception was so much fun and went exactly as planned. Henry did such a great job on the flowers and decor! Our wedding was everything we wanted and so much more. I didn't have to stress about what was going to happen when. Lawanna and Henry had everything taken care of, and all we had to do was enjoy the moment, and we did! Thank you so much to everyone at Chota Falls for making our wedding such an amazing, wonderful, fun, stress-free experience!!!!

Fairytale Wedding!!

Looking for the venue that literally has it all? STOP! You've found it! Top reasons you have to have your fairytale wedding at Chota Falls: 1. The view: Everything about Chota is breathtaking. It feels like another world & you never want to leave. We chose the waterfall venue &... Read More it was just beautiful. The reception area is AMAZING. Whether your wedding is tiny or 300 people it feels perfect. They have a bond fire outside at dark that make for great pictures & gives your guest someplace else to gather & even roast marshmallows! A lot of detail & thought has gone into the entire layout of Chota. 2. The People: Henry & Lawanna are some of the sweetest people, as well as every staff member there. They make you feel like family & will see to it that whatever you want on your day will happen. They're awesome at what they do & always make you feel top priority. Henry did an awesome job with my florals & even made my crazy pumpkin obsession look beautiful. He went out of his was to get my light up pumpkins & use them as centerpieces as I had requested! Lawanna was a great coordinator & made sure everything was smooth as silk. She even helped with a day of dress mishap and helped keep my mom & I calm. She had all the answers! Roxie, Arlene, & Wayne are all superb as well! 3. The Food: When we did our menu tasting we know we hit the jackpot! It tasted like a 5 star restaurant. They have so many options and will work with you any way you need for them to. Appetizers during cocktail hour all my guests loved and the service throughout the reception was meticulous. The sweet potatoes are simply off the chain!!!! All in all, I could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else. Chota Falls has something for everyone and my guest couldn't stop talking about how beautiful everything was. I'm still getting compliments 2 weeks later about "THAT place"! Henry & Lawanna completed our wedding night in a way we can't say thank you enough for and I'm so blessed we were brought to Chota Falls. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Best venue in Georgia

Chota Falls was amazing and if I could go back and do things over, I would do it all the same! We just got married there in October and everything was perfect. Lawanna and her husband, Henry, run it and they do a fabulous job. Lawanna is your wedding coordinator the weekend of... Read More and Henry does the flowers and decor and manages the catering. And let me tell you...this man is fabulous and reasonable with flowers! Not to mention how many compliments we heard about the food. It was so nice to be able to have our whole wedding party and family stay right there on site in the cottages that they have. The cottages are all very nice and well kept. We got to make a whole mountain/cabin weekend out of our wedding!! From the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding, to the bonfire afterwards everything was spectacular and I didn't have to worry about a single thing! Chota falls has several areas to get married at and you can't go wrong with any of them. We chose to get married by the waterfall and had their beautiful chapel as our backup in case it rained. I can't say enough good things about Chota Falls. All of my guests are still raving about how awesome and unique this venue was!! Thank you guys for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!

Of course there were some ups and downs leading to the big day, but on that day everything was perfect. There is no better place to get amazing photos for your wedding. Everyone worked hard and made the day perfect.

The place is a fairy tale. I knew I wanted to have my wedding there. I made the right choice. The service was excellent. They genuinely wanted your time there to be happy and memorable. My family bragged about the location and scenery. The food was delicious. The managers and... Read More planners were eager to be of assistance.They thought of every detail.
