We loved everything about our wedding day and overall experience at The Saratoga Springs. When looking for a wedding venue, one of our main focal points was capacity, and being able to accommodate 250 guests, The Saratoga Springs fit the bill. I immediately fell in love with the southern-style home and the wrap around porch. The landscaping was nicely done and the home just felt so cozy and inviting. They had great amenities to offer and I loved that we were able to hang out together and get ready at the venue before the ceremony. It was great because the bride and groom have their own part of the house to hang out without running into each other. Another selling point for me was the "cottage" they offer as an additional option for the weekend. My bridesmaids and I were able to spend the night together and have girl time after the rehearsal dinner. It was so special being able to spend that time with them before the wedding. It was also a great place with plenty of light and space to begin the hair and make-up process. The bridal suite at the home was gorgeous and spacious enough to accommodate all of my bridesmaids and both moms (14, plus videographers and photographers) while hanging out before the ceremony. It offered an exit onto the wrap around porch that was the perfect way to enter my "father-daughter first look." I know my husband and his groomsmen loved the groom suite as well. It had a manly feel to it and plenty of space for them to hang out, watch football, snack, etc. The venue had so many great places for photo options and every one of them photographed well. I loved that they had so many options for reception decor. It was so nice that we didn't have to bring every single piece of decor ourselves. They were even willing to work with us when we wanted to incorporate pews into the ceremony seating. Since we weren't getting married in a church, we still wanted to have a piece of the church incorporated. It hadn't been done before but they were open to the idea and allowed us to have them brought in. The horse drawn carriage exit was also a nice touch! It was a great way to spend a few minutes together after the ceremony while guests made their way to the happy hour. Both Tammy and Tammi were wonderful to work with. Leslie was able to help with a lot of things behind the scenes and she was so patient as we gathered all of the details. Having preferred vendors was also helpful. Bistro did a phenomenal job on the food and BK Entertainment was great to work with as well! Elegant & Classy Events hung the tent swag that we decided to add and we were so pleased with the way it turned out. I'm so glad we chose to plan our special day at The Saratoga Springs! It was a wonderful experience.
When I first stumbled upon the website for The Saratoga Springs, I saw the pricing information and thought I couldn't afford this wonderful venue. But then I saw everything that was included in the cost and realized that I was about to get a steal. Not only did they include the decorating, coordinating and a DJ, they were invested in the planning process to make sure I got everything I wanted. Truly, Saratoga was the perfect wedding venue. The grounds are gorgeous with space inside to get ready and a gazebo outside for the ceremony, or under the tented reception area if it rains. Tammi (manager) is so helpful and knowledgable and answers all your questions before you even think of them. Tammy (decorator) has skills and creativity that made my wedding more beautiful than I ever thought it could be. Leslie (ceremony coordinator) made sure everything on the day-of went smoothly and stress-free. If you think that Saratoga isn't worth the price tag, think again. I was on a budget just like any bride, but I know without a doubt that I got a tremendous amount of value here. Don't wait to book!
Let me first start by saying this place is BREATHTAKING! When we went to tour the venue we had NO intentions of booking or anything. When me and my now husband pulled up, we both got chills. And cried during the tour, and wedding video at the meer thought that this was both of our dreams, coming true. This venue is by far the most organized, put together, and caring place we could have chosen and God truly blessed us with them completely handling our special day. It was effortless the day of! Getting to know your bride and groom is extremely important to really know their vision and what they want their day to be and The Saratoga Springs BLEW US AWAY! The personal time Tammi, Tammy, and Leslie took to answer every text and call when my newly brain would forget a detail or ask a simple question really stood out to me. But most importantly they're the nicest, and down to earth family I've ever met and it's safe to say we got to know them on such a personal level that id consider them friends! Not just a wedding venue! I'm so thankful for all the time, and effort they put into our day to really make it everything I've dreamed of, and far beyond any expectation I had! There comes a time when you look back at your wedding day and think of things you wanted to do different or things you completely forgot and I did that for days and could not think of one single thing I would have wanted different or changed on their behalf. I couldn't of asked for more professionalism, and sheer class! It's every girls dream to come into your ceremony to marry the man of your dreams in a HORSE DRAWN CARRIAGE! That put everything over the top! And that option allowed me and my new husband 10-15 minutes to just really spend time with just us, soaking it all in! That meant more to me than anything they did for us. If I could suggest this place to every single Bride to be in the country I would. I discovered long time friends there, and truly have a gratefulness for them. God gave me the man of my dreams. And The Saratoga Springs gave me the wedding of my dreams. I will be eternally grateful for them!
Beautiful venue, professional and friendly staff and excellent choices of decor and use of the entire venue. My wedding day was absolutely perfect!
The Saratoga Springs was the wedding venue of my dreams! The staff, venue and decor were the best I could ask for. If you want a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony and reception this venue is for you! Look no further!!! A+++
The Saratoga Springs is the perfect place for a fairytale wedding!! Tammy and Larry and the entire team are awesome and make every effort to make sure the day is perfect!!
When we first toured Saratoga we immediately fell in love and knew this is where we wanted to have our BIG day! I could never say enough good things about how wonderful everyone is and how perfect our wedding day was. The Saratoga Springs, Larry, Tammy, Tammi and Leslie will forever hold a special place in our hearts!
Saratoga Springs is phenomenal. It is obvious Tammy, Leslie, and the rest of the Saratoga team LOVE what they do; it shows in their compassionate and attentive service. My wedding day was completely stress-free and everything looked beautiful. By the time all our planning was done and The Day had arrived, Tammy and Larry felt like family!
There isn't enough words to express my gratitude for the staff at Saratoga Springs!!! This staff truly cares about every fine detail to make your special day "The" day you always remember!! People told me to prepare myself for something to go wrong bc something always goes wrong at weddings but I can honestly say that was not the case for us and we owe it all to Saratoga Springs!!! They went up and beyond for us to make it the wedding of our dreams!!! My only wish is to go back and do it all over again!!! Thank you Saratoga Springs for all of your hard work and patience!!! Brides, this is the venue you want hands down!!!!
These guys are absolutely amazing! They made my wedding day so easy! From having plenty of room to get ready in, to doing a great job at the decorations they were wonderful all around. Leslie was amazing at assisting me with the issues that happened with my photographer and handled it all for me so that I could not stress on my wedding day. They do a great job at making your wedding dreams come true! Also it was super easy to plan my wedding from Oklahoma and not have to worry about a thing. Plus you get to be brought up in carriage! You really get the perfect wedding with them!
Every outdoor wedding venue I looked into had a minimum guest count for the weekend weddings. We wanted a small and intimate wedding with about 50 guests, on a weekend, with a reception that we could have dinner and dancing. I had almost given up hope of my outdoor southern fairytale wedding when a friend found The Saratoga Springs on the internet! Frank and I were married on July 3rd, 2016, and I couldn't have asked for a better day! From the 1st email to Tammi inquiring about pricing and availability, to the last hug of the night from Larry, it was everything I hoped for and more!! The staff, Tammi, Tammy, Leslie, Donna and Larry were amazing, each of them treated us like family! So much was included in their pricing, that it made our day so much more relaxing and enjoyable! Starting with Tammy and Larry handling all the decorating for the ceremony and reception, to the horse drawn carriage, to the DJ. Our family and friends have had nothing but great things to say about our wedding! I want to thank the entire staff from the bottom of my heart for everything each of you did to make our wedding day so special and beautiful, with an extra special thank you to Tammy and Larry for graciously opening up your gorgeous home to us and our guests. I will absolutely recommend The Saratoga Springs to anyone that is looking for their very own fairytale wedding!!
Saratoga Springs will always be one of my favorite places!! Tammi, Tammy and Leslie and everyone at Saratoga are the absolute best and the sweetest people you'll ever meet!! They will always hold a special place in my heart! I just wanted to say that it was such a pleasure to work with y'all! From the time we toured the venue til the last minutes of our wedding day! I knew the minute that we saw the place that it was gonna be where I wanted to get married! Our day was absolutely perfect! And I couldn't of picked a better venue to get married at. The property is absolutely stunning and all the decor was perfect. Y'all were so easy to work with and so helpful it made me feel less stressed cause y'all had everything under control! I can't say it enough that everything was perfect and I want to thank you so much for everything!!! I would definitely recommend Saratoga for anyone that's looking for a place to get married!
My husband and I got married on June 25th 2016. When my husband proposed I knew exactly where I wanted to get married. We planned a tour and they were set up for a full capacity wedding (250 people) so we got to see how everything would basically look. My husband, our mother's and I fell in love with Saratoga, Tammi, Tammy & Larry! We left that evening and I knew this was it! I emailed Tammi that night and said book us for this date! During the whole year process, every emailed was answered with no hesitation. They honestly care about you and really do make you feel like family. During our planning, we had a new wedding coordinator... Leslie. I will be honest I was a little nervous because Tammi had helped me so much but Leslie was AMAZING!!!! once we arrived to Saratoga for rehearsal and our wedding day it was everything that we could have imagined and more! We truly fell in love with Saratoga. Thank you to Tammi, Larry&Tammy, and Leslie for making it perfect!
My now husband and I found The Saratoga Springs and immediately scheduled a tour. We toured the venue, fell in love with the property, and knew right away that it was where we wanted to get married. I cannot even begin to express how wonderful The Saratoga Springs is. We were very fortunate to work with Mrs. Tammi to plan our ceremony, and Mrs. Tammy to plan the reception. These ladies always made us feel special, and like our wedding was their top priority. Living in SC and getting married in NC came with its challenges, but the ladies at this venue helped us every step of the way. This venue is absolutely gorgeous! Mrs. Tammi set up everything at the ceremony in the most tasteful and beautiful way. I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding other than getting ready, and getting married. I am so grateful to Mrs. Tammi for all her hard work and coordination. Mrs. Tammy brought every single one of my dreams and ideas to life at our reception. I told her what I was imagining at our planning meeting. When I showed up the day of the wedding, I was blown away with how wonderful everything at the reception looked! Mrs. Tammy is so talented and creative. The owners of this venue pitch in in every way that they can. Mr. Larry was very helpful in making sure everything was set-up before hand, and helping my family pack everything in the cars after the wedding. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about The Saratoga Springs! Thank you to the fabulous staff for treating us like family, and for making our wedding day the most perfect day of our lives!
For every bride out there, a stress free wedding = The Saratoga Springs. The location is magnificent. My wedding was romantic, cheerful, and elegant. The staff treats you like family. I get chills just thinking for the way I felt when I first saw the location. Tammi and Ms. Tammy, Leslie, Erica, and Ms. Tammy's sister (little Tammy) cause we could not tell the difference, and Mr. Larry Honeycutt you have made this and experience to remember. Our families had a great time and this was everything we had dreamed off. This venue is absolutely breathtaking. You made my wedding unforgettable.
Absolutely loved everything about this place! The property and the house is beautiful and my family and friends couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful and perfect everything was. My wedding day went very smoothly and everything was so organized! It really was the perfect day thanks to Saratoga Springs and the lovely people who work there. I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else!
The best wedding venue! This beautiful home and property exceeded all expectations of an outdoor wedding. We used this venue for our September wedding and were never once disappointed. Tammi was absolutely amazing and took every ounce of stress out of the big day. Her attention to detail and planning skills were beyond words. We are so appreciative of her and all parties involved in the meticulous planning and delegation from start to finish. I have no complaints just pure gratitude for all they have done, the venue as a whole and the making of our forever! I would recommend this venue to anyone seeking a perfectly planned, detail oriented, outdoor & gorgeous wedding filled with archways and green space. Totally love you all at Saratoga!!!!
If you are looking for a beautiful venue to hold both your wedding and reception, Saratoga Springs would definitely be at the top of my list for recommendations! Saratoga Springs was the perfect venue for our May 2015 Wedding! From our first visit to tour the property to the very end of our reception we felt like family! Larry, Tammi and the staff are amazing at what they do and so great to work with! I was planning our wedding from out of town and Tammi was so great at answering my many questions via email and accommodating her schedule to meet with us when I was in town. The property is beautiful as well! You can tell that the Honeycutt family takes pride in Saratoga Springs and we received many compliments from our guests that this was the most beautiful wedding and venue that had ever seen. Also, the Cottage they provide on-site is a great amenity! My bridal party and I spent the night there and got ready there on the morning of the Wedding. The location to the Main House is so convenient and worth taking advantage of. Choosing Saratoga Springs as a our Wedding Venue was the best decision we made during our planning process. They are so well organized and efficient that your wedding will go off perfectly without you having to worry about anything!

The Saratoga Springs served as the perfect venue for both our ceremony and reception. We are so glad to of had the opportunity to plan a wedding in such a beautiful location!

Words can't begin to express how wonderful of a day it was! I could not have asked for a more perfect day in every aspect. As soon as we arrived, everything was taken care of. All of the detailed planning that goes into your day is done that way for a reason. We had some bad weather come in right as we were about to start seating people and Tammi and her staff made sure everything was well taken care of. I, as the bride, was not worried at all, about anything! It truly made me be able to enjoy my day so much more since I didn't have to worry. Saratoga Springs also worked with me and my wedding planners to make my reception a true fairytale experience! I can't begin to thank the whole staff enough for making it the best day! If you want that southern fairytale wedding, This is the place to do it! I knew for many years that this was the place where I would get married, and I would choose it again every time! -Katie Smith
It has been a little over a year since my husband and I were married at Saratoga Springs and to this day I could not picture a more BEAUTIFUL and STUNNING wedding venue! Our pictures are absolutely perfect and it's mostly because our venue was perfect! Tammi and the entire staff at Saratoga are so wonderful and made all the planning so easy! They organize the entire day to you and your style, down to the minute! They made EVERYTHING run so smoothly! I couldn't imagine our wedding day being any more beautiful and perfect! I have also had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they have always made my husband and I feel welcome and as if we were at home! The venue is just absolutely stunning and so well maintained! I am so blessed to have had the pleasure of being married in such gorgeous venue! You definitely can't go wrong getting married here!!
No complaints!Reviewed on 5/26/2015 Kayla
This venue and the staff were wonderful! I have absolutely no complaint what so ever! If you are looking for a quiet, cozy, fairy tale with a southern charm style wedding... This is your place! Tammi and her staff made it as stress free as possible. Tammi was ALWAYS on top of everything and responded very quickly when I would send her emails. She was always very nice and helpful. She is amazing at what she does. These people know how to do business and definitely have everything together! I recommend staying at the cottage as well. Very clean, tastefully decorated and convenient to the venue. The owners of Saratoga always made me feel very welcome in their home as well. I can't say enough great things about this place! I highly recommend it :)'
THANK YOU!Reviewed on 5/26/2015 Nicole J
Corey and I recently got married at The Saratoga Springs this month and it was by far the best day of our lives. I am so thankful I ran across this venue when I was looking for an outside venue in the Charlotte area. From the first day we signed the contract to the day of our wedding I was completely satisfied. Tammi, the director, is awesome. She knows what she is doing and was always there for me via phone or email if I had any questions throughout my wedding planning. She knows the venue and the process like the back of her hand and with me being the Bride - I felt certain that my wedding day was going to go as planned because of her confidence level. I remember walking in the house a few hours before the ceremony started and I had no stress on my shoulders because Tammi and her wonderful hearted staff were getting it done for me. Once again, with me being the bride I got the enjoy the time to take pictures and spend time with my girls before walking down the aisle. It was our fairytale wedding and I loved every minute of planning and every minute of our wedding day! Tammi and her team, as well as the home owners were all so wonderful to us and our guest - it was a true blessing to have such a beautiful venue to get married at as well as having determined/loving people behind the scene to make our day so special. We are so happy with the decision we made to get married at The Saratoga Springs! - Corey and Nicole Plott
As a wedding planner for the last 15+ years you can imagine how picky I was when it came time for my own son to get married. Luckily he and his fiancé chose The Saratoga Springs! From the first moment we drove up for the initial tour until the moment we left after the wedding was over with, everything was absolute perfection. The grounds, horse drawn carriage, beautiful reception area, and everything in between, was like a fairy tale. One of the best decisions I made was to decide to have the rehearsal dinner at this venue too. It was an absolutely amazing dinner outside on the back patio which gave us even more time to enjoy this spectacular venue. The owners along with Tammi who oversees the wedding planning left me with NOTHING to worry about. Every single detail was thought out and planned ahead of time, leaving us with an absolutely perfect rehearsal dinner and wedding day. I am still getting calls and text messages from the guests to let me know it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. Many thanks to Tammi for a flawless, perfect wedding weekend.
Great venue!Reviewed on 9/02/2014 Candace T
Tammi & Tammy and all the others at Saratoga Springs are amazing. We had the perfect wedding in such a picture perfect setting. Tammi made sure that everything ran smoothly while Tammy decorated the venue to perfection using all the linens, centerpieces, and candles we picked out. Tammi is always available by email or phone to help with any situation. They were a pleasure to work with and I could not have had a more perfect wedding. I am very pleased and all my guests continue to discuss how perfect everything went!!
