The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm is absolutely the most beautiful and special place in the area, and it's beauty is only enhanced by the staff that works there!! My husband and I were able to achieve the wedding of our wildest dreams with the help of the wonderful staff - the...

DeAnne answered every question (sometimes without being asked) incredibly fast, the caterers went above and beyond, Cynthia makes the tastiest desserts, and Matilda captivated my family/guests and helped the day go by without a single kink!!! They all made us feel so very special and celebrated from the moment we chose the venue until the moment we left as one. I will recommend this place and these people a thousand times with complete confidence!

Kellum Valley was the perfect choice for our wedding! We were looking for beautiful scenery in a somewhat unique setting, and Kellum had just that! We looked at 10-15 venues, and knew immediately when we visited Kellum that it was exactly what we were looking for. The grounds...

They were very laid back and easygoing, but made sure we got everything we needed. It wasn't stressful, and DeAnne answered any and all of our questions in a very timely manner. The day of the wedding we left the guestbook, our favors and a few other various decorations and the team at Kellum set everything up with very little (if any) direction. All in all, it's the perfect venue if you're looking for a gorgeous, peaceful and unique setting in the mountains. We had guests keep telling us after they had never been to such a unique and charming venue.

The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm could not have been any more of a perfect venue. Everyone is so fantastic to work with, especially DeAnne and Joel (the owners). They are the nicest couple and so easy to communicate with, even when I was rapid firing off questions to DeAnne,... Read More which she always answered promptly and in detail. Everyone at the venue is so on top of things and handled everything perfectly and efficiently. The list of vendors they provide was such a huge help and every one of those that we used was great as well.

You will fall in love with the venue and people as soon as you step foot on the property.

My husband and I got married here this October. We would highly recommend DeAnne and The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm. They did such an amazing job - DeAnne was always there to answer my 5o million questions and concerns, and they really helped make the ceremony and reception... Read More special and uniquely ours. The ceremony and reception space are absolutely stunning - if you're looking for a unique wedding this is it! The only downside for us was a cold-front came through on our weekend and it was colder than we were hoping - so it is a gamble being all-outside (they do have a back-up tent and did have two heaters). The person who does the cakes is okay, we ordered extra desserts and they didn't come out that great, but the cake itself turned out beautiful on the outside and just as we asked her to make it! We were so happy with how everything turned out for us, it really is a stunning wedding venue with such wonderful people there to help you all the way through the crazy wedding process! We would definitely recommend!

Where to start! This place is perfect for a wedding. My husband and I live in California, but we were able to arrange the wedding seamlessly with the help of Deanne and her team. I had always dreamed about getting married out in nature, but did not go into planning knowing a... Read More whole lot about wedding venues. Although my husband is from Atlanta, we got engaged up near the North Georgia Mountains, so I was determined to get married there. After taking a trip around the are, we visited numerous venues in the area (with some being too cramped, not properly suited for a wedding, or just too pricey!). As soon as we took a tour, I knew this was "the one"..A word in favor of getting married in North Georgia-- it is not as overdone as having a wedding in Savannah nor is it full of tourists. We had a lot of family from out of town, and we ended up renting a cabin lodge. The beauty of Asheville, only an hour away from Atlanta. By choosing the ruins, I liked that we had essentially 3 or 4 venues in one-- there were the mountains, the field/barn, the house, and the magnificent ruins. This made for great photo opportunities! Deanne and her team were exceptional throughout the whole process. She answered every email, every question, and helpfully shared her 'rolodex' of vendors she has successfully worked with when asked. On the day of the wedding, the wedding coordinator was great and made my job very stress free. The caterer was fabulous-- he is a great chef and uses organic and local ingredients. We had so many compliments afterwards, with many guests saying that it was the best wedding food they had. Most importantly, we heard rave reviews from our guests, who thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the venue and the wedding/ceremony/reception itself (which was in part due to the great organization!). It's just a great place to get married, I could not recommend it more.

My husband and I got married this past October and let me tell you, the Kellum Valley Ruins are breath taking. It is perfect for a fall wedding! The leaf color stands out vibrantly among the mountains. The entire experience with DeAnne and her coordinator was phenomenal. From...

Not only was the cake good but the caterer speaks for himself. Everything we tried at the tasting was on point and so was our food on the wedding day. I couldn't have asked for more. You can't go wrong. Thank you DeAnne!

I couldn't imagine our wedding being anywhere else. The Ruins at KVF is a magical setting. Words cannot describe the fairytale this place becomes once the sun sets. The entire process was pretty easy because of the owner DeAnne. She is incredibly sweet, professional, and... Read More helpful. She was so welcoming at every visit, so thorough in every email reply, and just a great person overall. I wish we could have had a little better guidance & communication from our day of coordinator during the rehearsal and wedding day. Perhaps if we could have been in contact with her a few weeks leading up to the wedding to iron out details. We had some different circumstances - I don't see this being necessary for most families, but we could have used the extra guidance. I also wish there was better phone reception. It was impossible to make or receive calls at the venue - which can be seen as a blessing and a curse. Other than those few minor problems, everything was a dream. I'll never forget our wedding day and the kind people at KVF. I would recommend getting married here to anyone looking for a whimsical outdoor wedding and reception. Thank you for everything!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Kellum Valley Farm on September 5, 2015 and I could not have asked for it to go better! I found this venue on The Knot and planned my wedding there from out-of-state, which can be quite cumbersome, but this burden was significantly... Read More reduced by the responsiveness of the owner of the venue, DeAnne. She was wonderful beyond words, responding to all of my questions and concerns, always treating me and my family members with a warm and welcoming disposition. I shared with her my ideas and she made every one of them happen! Not to mention that when I did happen to be in town for one thing or another, she made herself available to meet with me. The prop room had a variety of beautiful pieces that helped make my wedding appear exactly as I had imagined it would. Set against the incredible backdrop of the farm, which is nestled in picturesque mountains, my pictures turned out beautifully. The day-of, it all went so smoothly, and I had nothing to worry about but getting myself ready and walking down the aisle. Of particular concern to me was finding other vendors in the area, but DeAnne took care of that as well: - The caterer she works, James, with was phenomenal - my guests all raved about the food (which is rare at a wedding), and the caterer even made some dishes not normally on his menu at our request with no additional hassle or charge. - The baker DeAnne works with, Cynthia, was equally amazing. I've never had such moist, delicious cakes and cupcakes, and they looked stunning. Each cupcake flavor had a different color frosting and Cynthia arranged them so beautifully that the dessert table could have been featured in a magazine. - DeAnne also referred me to her usual florists, Flower Buds, who were creative and also produced magazine-quality arrangements on a jaw-dropping flower budget. In the end, all of this was accomplished with my $25K budget for a 100-person wedding, which included all of my travel and accommodations both for the wedding and scouting trips. I cannot thank DeAnne and her staff enough for helping to create my dream wedding. If you are looking to have a vintage-inspired, rustic outdoor wedding like mine in North Georgia, look no further - this is the place!
