Our wedding was April 17, 2016. We had a LOVELY Sunday brunch noon wedding. The staff was amazing, the grounds we absolutely perfect and I could not have had a better wedding day.

Matt and I got married at Vecoma At the Yellow River last month and LOVED it! I continue to have people tell me how beautiful it was! Vecoma was definitely the way to go. It is exclusively a wedding venue and they do almost everything for you. Caroline, the owner, and her... Read More husband were our photographers and WOW! They took 670 outstanding pictures and we got them all at no additional cost. Vecoma also provides the food and beverages. We went with the Cajun menu and it was DELICIOUS! We also used their DJ, Kirk, and thought he really kept the reception on schedule and the party dancing! The décor both inside and outside is absolutely stunning. I definitely recommend checking this venue out. Their FB page has tons of pictures you can see before you go. Three words to describe Vecoma - Beautiful, affordable, easy (I cannot stress this enough - Caroline and her team have this down pat, I didn't have to worry about anything!)

I am excited to have my wedding at Vecoma in September! My fiancé and I heard about the venue from a family member and immediately jumped on it. The first time we visited the venue in the early part of the year the grass was so incredibly green, that staff was accommodating to... Read More our tight schedule, because both of my parents live out of state, we were able to get the ball rolling pretty quickly and easily. I'm am still amazed that it has been so easy for us to be taken care of with the help of the flexible staff, answering questions via email and the phone in the same day. We love that fact that Vecoma has been so understanding with my fiancé's changing schedule with Dekalb Couny Fire Recruit School. Due to the fact that I sprung a wedding on my parents so quickly, less than a year, the value for a wedding here is unbelievable! It has been extremely stress free with affordable in house catering with vegetarian options and even the option of an in house DJ. An affordable one stop shop!

I could not have picked a better venue for my wedding at Vecoma. The venue is very affordable, beautiful and the staff goes above and beyond to make your day worry-free and perfect. Caroline Tucker is the best photographer, her work is stunning, our pictures came out beautiful... Read More and beyond my expectations. During the wedding planning process, Vecoma was very helpful with anything I had questions about, and they were very responsive to my emails. Vecoma is almost all inclusive which I really like. They have a fabulous in house DJ, wedding coordinator for the wedding day, 2 meetings before the wedding, ceremony rehearsal on site (which I will add was very quick and went smoothly because Vecoma is very organzied), great photography pricing, and the alcohol/food comes from Vecoma. Their open bar is the best choice (it saved us the most money with the amount of guests that attended the wedding). The alcohol selection is great, they have basically anything you want. The food is delicious, we had the Italian feast with a roast beef carving station. I also really liked that Vecoma has 3 options for your ceremony. You can have it outdoors alongside the river, on the covered deck, or inside by the fireplace. I was really bummed because it rained on my wedding day, so the ceremony had to be moved inside by the fireplace instead of by the river; however, looking back, I don't regret having the ceremony indoors. The lighting and decorations inside are so nice, and looked wonderful in person and in pictures. After the ceremony, it stopped raining so we were able to take some pictures outside as well. Overall, I am so impressed with Vecoma.

My wedding will be held at Vecoma early fall of 2017. I just had to let all brides who are in the process of looking for a venue know how amazing Vecoma and its staff has been through out my journey. I'm a bride on a tight budget who doesn't handle stress well. As I searched for... Read More venues I found nothing that was in my budget and fit our personalities. I came across Vecoma and fell in love! I did all of my research (stalking) on the venue read all of the amazing reviews and decided to take a tour. During my tour I was pretty much sold. The staff was super sweet, all prices were already broken down for me so I didn't have to guess and do math on if it fit my budget or not. There were so many options to make it work for us. Being that Vecoma is pretty much a one stop shop for 90% of the vendors you need for a wedding, it's been a super easy no stress journey. Even after I set my date they wer sooooo flexible with me! Vecoma reminds me of a family home. It feels like home, family, and love. They operate in excellence and are so professional. I'm so excited to have them in my corner for my big day!!!

Vecoma was absolutely perfect. We didn't want an overly formal wedding and we wanted something more affordable. Vecoma was everything we were looking for. It was gorgeous, it wasn't extremely formal, it was great for indoor and outdoor celebrations, and so much more. The staff... Read More was amazing. Caroline made sure everything ran smoothly. Catering was included, which was great, and the staff set up plates for my husband and I so we could sit down and eat, which was fantastic.

It looks and feels as if the venue is in the countryside rather than in the midst of a busy suburb east of Atlanta. Our daughter's outdoor wedding ceremony on the...

I can honestly say I don’t even know where to begin. I am a bride on a serious budget. I’m the type of person you would say has a “champagne taste with a beer budget.” I wanted a venue that I could realistically afford but it still had to be beautiful, romantic as well as... Read More stunning. After almost 7 months of searching and visiting venues I found the Vecoma at the Yellow River. It was everything I was looking for. Literally, from the drapery on the ceilings to the river behind the georgeous ceremony area. You can have your wedding inside or out. I love options. The décor, food, set up and breakdown is included in the price. The food is delicious! We tried the food during the food tasting we were invited to. There are plenty of options for every taste. The décor is to die for. Beautiful wall décor, and greenery. They include centerpieces if you choose or use your own. The Vecoma is just georgous all around. The outside (front and back) to the deck and the inside will take your breath away. But the absolute best part about the Vecoma is the wonderful people. I felt like I was the only bride in the world. They are so personable and answered all of my 2,365,158,265 questions with a smile and without making me feel like a bother. From the staff to the actual owners I always felt like a princess. They 100% saved our day and we forever grateful for it. If you are still searching, do yourself one of the greatest favors ever and visit The Vecoma at the Yellow River. You will not be disappointed! -Sherita
