I want to say lovely things about Foxhall, I really do, but there were just a lot of issues I can't ignore. The good stuff: Legacy Lookout was beautiful and picture perfect. All of our guests loved it, and I am still receiving compliments on its beauty! Our 200 guests + vendors all fit comfortably inside and outside the venue. We were allowed to incorporate our dogs in the ceremony, which was a big deal for us. My family and bridesmaids stayed in one of the lodges while the groom's family & groomsmen stayed in the other. The amenities were good and the beds slept incredibly well. The bad stuff: Although we paid thousands of dollars up front for the lodges, we were unable to see inside them until the day we checked in. We asked several dozen times if we could go inside, and although we were told it would be okay, we were never actually let in. In fact, my mom drove over an hour after making an appointment to see the lodges, only to be told when she arrived that she couldn't. It was VERY frustrating and caused a lot of problems when we arrived and discovered we did not have enough room for everyone. It could have been avoided if they had let us inside at least once over the course of the YEAR before the wedding. I was also very annoyed to receive an email from the wedding coordinator, Deniese, the day after the wedding accusing us of leaving the altar at the venue, and letting us know that it would be promptly removed. When I emailed her back to tell her our altar was in our possession and she was mistaken, she did not even respond. I did not like working with Deniese from the beginning. I immediately got the feeling she disliked me, but since she never even tried to be friendly with me I can only imagine that she just thinks everyone sucks. Basically, I feel like we paid waaaay too much money for the kind of service we received (or didn't receive).
I got married at the Stables in November and I couldn't of asked for a better venue! It is so so so beautiful and everything I could have ever imagined. We worked with the amazing Brooke and she totally sold us on foxhall! We also rented out both lodges for our wedding party and family which is a must! They are pricey but totally worth it. It made our wedding into a whole weekend instead of just one day. I can't say enough good things about foxhall! PERFECT wedding venue if you are looking for rustic elegance with the glam!
We loved this venue so much! They were very receptive and responsive to all our questions and requests. You do have to choose and bring in all the vendors for the event but they give you a list of those they have recently used that couples have liked. Our family stayed at the villas which, are beautiful, and gave the feel of a destination wedding. The whole night of the wedding my family and I felt so attended to and taken care of. We cannot say enough great things about this venue!
We held my daughter's wedding at Legacy Lookout on December the 10th of this year. The venue itself is just beautiful. It has been recently remodeled in the bridal suite and we had 10 lovely bridemaids all getting ready at the same time and managed to have plenty of room. The various recommended vendors were out of this world wonderful!! We loved the ease with which the entire event was managed and would like to recommend that anyone looking for an awesome experience give this location a visit. It was the first and last place we looked at. We never went anywhere else and we never regretted that decision!! Wish we could do it all over again. :-)
The staff at Fox Hall from beginning to end went overboard to make sure that our daughter had the fairy tale wedding that she dreamed of...from their staff, their vendor recommendations to helping us find missing items afterwards, they went out of their way. I can't say enough wonderful things about them!!!
Foxhall was such a pleasure to work with and our wedding was so beautiful. They offer a lot with their wedding packages and we are so happy that we chose Foxhall
Foxhall is a great venue! Our was held at Legacy Lookout and it is so beautiful! The staff was easy to work with and very willing to work with you.
My wife and I booked Foxhall for our only daughter's wedding and we were impressed and very satisfied with the experience from start to finish. The Foxhall team is extremely experienced in their approach and one of their team is a former wedding planner. They provided good ideas, timely response and helpful recommendations. The facility itself is beautiful with rolling hills, lakes and forest. Our venue, The Stables, really impressed our guests and created the perfect environment for both a beautiful ceremony and fabulous reception. The Foxhall team provided support throughout and we are happy to recommend them to anyone who is planning an upcoming wedding.
Foxhall left quite the impression on my groom and I from the moment we stepped onto the property. We got married over Labor Day Weekend and wanted a place outside of the hustle and bustle of Atlanta during the holiday. Initially, my groom was a little put out by the distance but this was instantly forgotten once we stepped onto their lush acreage. We chose the Stables--it was truly a no-brainer. The venue was so clean and so simply but tastefully decorated. There was so much light and had an open-air feeling that we had not experienced at other wedding site visits. The bridal suite was gorgeous--so much room for my bridal party, make-up artist and hair dressers. You could not help but to feel like a princess while getting ready! The ceremony site was outside of the stables within the paddocks. The walkway to the arbor is perfectly paved and provides a magnificent entrance in as a bride. During the summer months, the trees were so lush and green and provided some shade as well. The arbor is big...and I did have to grow into liking it's appearance! But if you have a good design team, it will look exactly how you need it to look! The staff for Foxhall were very easy to work with and everything was executed as discussed!
I recently had my wedding at the stables, and it was absolutely beautiful. The lighting in the whole venue is so bright and pure with the multitude of windows and glass doors. Outside is filled with greenery and acres of land. The whole resort is absolutely wonderful, and we had so many comments on how beautiful it is. The bridal room is also filled with that wonderful natural light to make getting ready and bridal portraits to die for. One of the perks of this property is the amenities. We were able to stay on property with our whole wedding party Friday-Sunday! We play yard games, went swimming, and the guys got to do skeet shooting the morning of the wedding as well. There are so many other options as well that we didn't have the time to experience. The staff is accommodating at this venue, and even with hiccups along the way, they made sure to smooth everything out, and to make everything perfect. There wasn't a bump in the road on the day of and we could not have been happier.
Stunning property and venues!Reviewed on 11/02/2015 Lindsay M
We are getting married next September at Legacy Lookout at Foxhall Resort & Sporting Club! We originally looked at the beach as a wedding venue, but fell in love with Foxhall and decided to get married there instead. The property and venues are absolutely stunning and the staff could not have been more helpful. We live in NYC so we only had one day to visit the property. We already booked the resort for the full weekend for all our wedding events and the Foxhall staff even helped us find our vendors! We are having a Thursday night welcome party at Grand Pavillion, Friday night rehearsal dinner at the stables, and Saturday ceremony and reception at Legacy Lookout. We would HIGHLY recommend this venue!!
The Grand Pavilion was the perfect venue for our modern geometric meets picnic style wedding. We had our ceremony on the lawn overlooking the gorgeous paddocks that stretch out over the flowing landscape that Foxhall has created. After the ceremony, guest enjoyed picnic blankets and lawn games under the arms of the trees that line the upper lawn and mingled on the back patio that we lined with cafe lights and added a second bar to. The A-framesque Pavilion itself was the perfect tie in to the moss covered geometric shapes and floral arrangements and bright colors we used for our reception. We decided to use the front room and patio for our dinner area. We used the inside bar for our Bloody Mary set up, making use of the awesomely long bar! And we used the back room for our cake table and inside dance floor and had several high boys set up for guest to gather around. It was everything I could have wanted in a venue for our styling ideas. As for the staff, I could not imagine a better team to work with and enjoyed every minute of it! Brooke helped me with each and every one of my 1027 questions and was always kind, knowledgeable and encouraging. We booked both the Cypress Lodge and the Oriole House and couldn't have been happier that we made that decision. The homes were perfectly maintained, clean and welcoming! And Brent was a joy to work with as well. I really enjoyed getting to see the playful banter that all of the staff have with one another, it made me feel among friends and allowed me to comfortable ask any question I had about any idea I could dream up. I cannot imagine having any other experience and believe it was well worth every penny we spent. Start to finish, working with Foxhall was a totally amazing experience! The best!
Foxhall is the most amazing venue we could have ever chosen for our special day! From the gorgeous setting and location to Brooke and her amazing team, everything about our day turned out perfectly. Foxhall even introduced us to a lot of the other vendors we ended up using (florist, decor, caterer, etc). They were so accommodating and made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. We had the best day of our lives and can't possibly thank Foxhall enough!
Great venues and great serviceReviewed on 10/27/2015 Kristen H
We had our wedding at Foxhall, and they made our wedding day amazing! The service was outstanding--I felt like they were constantly accommodating our requests. Also, the venues speak for themselves--beautiful! I owe a lot to Foxhall for making our day unbelievable and for a wedding that our family & friends are still talking about!
Absolutely Amazing!!!Reviewed on 9/15/2015 Jesi G
Foxhall Resort is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. We used the Grand Pavilion for our rehearsal dinner, rented both homes for the bridal parties to stay in, and were married at Legacy Lookout! It was like having a destination wedding without leaving Georgia. There were so many fun activities to do to keep everyone occupied during the weekend. They have a pool that we were able to take my sisters children to during the day, and golf cart rentals to ride them around in. The groomsmen went on a clay shoot the day of the wedding and absolutely loved it! We didn't get to do the kayaking and fishing, but everyone talks constantly about renting the homes for a weekend in order to be able to enjoy a relaxing and fun weekend close to home, but with the feel of a far away vacation destination. One of the things we liked about Foxhall was that we had the option to use outside vendors instead of having to purchase a pricey food and alcohol package through the vendor like most other places we looked at. The venue rate is more expensive than some places, but it evens out with how much money you can save by using outside vendors. Their preferred vendor list is amazing! The staff at Foxhall is extremely helpful and cooperative. Brooke will be your initial contact. She does the tours and booking. I am a person with a million questions at all times, and Brooke was extremely patient and happily answered all of my questions! Deniese was my event coordinator. She handled my walkthrough of the venue the month before, and helped me make the decisions of how to arrange tables, buffet lines, etc. Everything at Foxhall was very well organized. The entire weekend there ran so smoothly. We had roughly 200 guests. Even with a 6 piece band, 2 bars, and 2 buffet lines the building didn't feel crowded. Everyone that attended the wedding has raved about how amazing and gorgeous this one of a kind venue was. Even our photographers, who shoot 25+ weddings per year all over the south, told our families it was the prettiest venue they'd ever seen and were excited they had a chance to shoot a wedding there. I would highly recommend booking your wedding with Foxhall. When you decide to have a wedding you are actively signing up for a ton of stress and a million decisions to make. I can say with confidence that choosing Foxhall for our venue was by far the easiest and best decision we made. They have different locations all over the property that can fit with any size wedding making it a great choice for most everyone. If you choose Foxhall, I can promise you that you will not regret it. Good luck to all the future Foxhall brides!
Where to begin? The beautiful trees in bloom and luscious grass early April. The kind, generous, one of a kind staff. The venue selection with views you can't beat. A wedding coordinator there for you whenever you have you "bridal 50 questions" that respond to every single one. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. They made us feel as if we were the only wedding going on and we were definitely top priority all day. From rehearsal to the big day, we couldn't have asked for a better staff. Thank you Foxhall for making all of our dreams come true. Love, the Nasworthys
My wedding @ The Stables of Foxhall-5/22/15Reviewed on 6/08/2015
I don't know where to begin to describe how wonderful this venue was for our special day!!! From my first visit to tour with Brooke, I was so impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. Upon touring, I absolutely fell in love with the grounds and knew this was the place I had dreamed of since I was a little girl. Brent and all of the staff were so wonderful to work with and the executed everything perfectly the day of ceremony and for rehearsal!! I HIGHLY recommend Foxhall to anyone for the most beautiful venue possible with the most amazing people to work with!!! A Thousand Thumbs UP!!:-)
Beautiful!Reviewed on 4/07/2015 Kali J
I recently had my wedding here and they place was perfect! We worked with Brooke and she took care of our every need if she didn't know the answer she would copy me in an email with someone who did know the answer. On the day of the wedding there were so many people there making sure everything was exactly as I had planned in a meeting with Foxhall a month prior! I cannot say enough great things about Foxhall. People and venue were incredible!
Highly Recommend!Reviewed on 1/16/2015 Taylor H
My husband and I got married at Fox Hall on November 1, 2014 at The Stables. Our experience was phenomenal from our first visit to the departure at our wedding! I highly recommend Fox Hall! Their facilities are breathtaking and their staff is very friendly. Everyone went above and beyond for us to make our day perfect!
My perfect dayReviewed on 11/04/2014 Jenny P
My husband and I spent a couple of months looking at various locations that offered outdoor venues, but none of them offered the privacy and view that Foxhall did. Our wedding was on Friday, October 10th and everything was beautiful. It was still pretty warm, so if you are hoping for chilly fall weather with leaves changing you may want to choose a date a little later. We chose the Legacy Lookout. We had approximately 90 guests including the wedding party. There was more than enough room for our guests, the full buffet, and a band and dance floor. The site manager was wonderful and I loved working with Brooke. Brooke made sure we got exactly what we wanted for our bar service. The day of the wedding we had trouble getting some shepherd hooks in the ground and the site manager was able to get tools right out there. All of my guests were awed by the site during the ceremony and reception and many of them said they hadn't been to a more beautiful wedding.
Beautiful Venue for Wedding Weekend/Excellent StaffReviewed on 11/03/2014
We held the rehearsal dinner, the wedding and reception at Foxhall, and included lodgings for close friends and family as well as a wedding day sporting clay shoot. The staff was terrific - friendly and on time, as well as attentive to our needs - and the lodging, dinner and ceremony venues were beautiful and comfortable for our guests. We could not have asked for more. We wanted a high end luxurious but restful and nature-filled weekend and we got exactly what we paid for. We highly recommend Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club for any special occasion.
Appalling serviceReviewed on 10/24/2014 Stephanie W
I recently had my wedding at foxhall resort. All experiences leading up to my wedding day were great until the day of my wedding. Their employees were rude and less than helpful, one sat in seats meant for guests all night on his phone. When asked what he was doing he got an attitude and argued with me right before I walked down the aisle. The next day my husband and I contacted Brooke Tolleson to inform her of what had happened with this young gentleman. At first she was very polite but by monday her tone changed, she was rude and condescending. She even went as far as stating that I had slapped a groomsmen and our wedding (which was 25 guests) was wildly out of control. None of which are true. We called the wedding quits at 945 because both my husband and I were exhausted. On Tuesday it changed to that i slapped my Husband, also not true. Even if I had slapped someone it had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that her employee sat around all night on his cell phone. The "facility coordinators" also took it upon themselves to take and eat the wedding favors that were meant for guests. Not a single one of my guests got any of the wedding favors. When all was said and done Brooke told my husband she couldnt take him seriously, that the conversation was over and hung up on him. Many of my friends and family left reviews of what they experienced that day on the foxhall facebook page and foxhall deleted all of the negative reviews. Instead of apologizing and rectifying the situation, Brooke did everything in her power to make it out as if i was the bad person. They are far from professional and I would suggest everyone stay away!
Unmatched beautyReviewed on 6/18/2014 Brittany K
A little pricey, but so worth it for us! Our pictures and our ceremony were perfect thanks to the beautiful setting of Legacy Lookout at Foxhall!
