The staff at Peachtree is awesome! We picked this venue knowing we wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony with a good plan B option. We worked mostly with Bridget but also with Jon and Lori at different points during the planning process. The group tasting we attended a couple months out was wonderful and gave us lots of great options to choose from! We had a few planning meetings with Bridget and our wedding planner to walk through logistics and pick out any rental items. We also appreciated that Peachtree was open to a floor plan they had never done before, which turned out great! Once our wedding day arrived my husband and I could not have been happier with how things turned out! The grounds looked absolutely beautiful and we were lucky to have great weather so our ceremony was outside in the gardens and cocktail hour on the mansion patio. Our families are big foodies and the food was off the charts!! We received non-stop compliments on the food and service all night. Many people told me that as the bride I would not get a chance to eat at my wedding. Well I can say that thanks to Julie (our attendant), we ate every single thing and always had a drink in hand! Big thanks to the whole Peachtree team for helping to make our day better than we could have imagined

Bridget and her staff were amazing! They were calm, efficient, very detail oriented and did a fantastic job! The food was served on time and was delicious! The grounds were gorgeous and the pictures of the bride and groom were stunning in that environment. Thank you for making our special day filled with many happy memories. All the best, Gail Parke (MOB)

Melinda and her team are truly wonderful! We picked Parque because we wanted a kosher wedding outdoors. It was perfect. We planned our wedding in 3(!) short months at the height of wedding season and could not have done it without this team. The scenery is BEAUTIFUL and the food is AMAZING. So many people could not believe it was all kosher. My friend told me she still dreams about the food 🙂 Leading up the wedding, Melinda was great. I emailed her a million times with a million small questions because that’s what happens when you plan a wedding in 3 months! She was never fazed and always was professional. We were also planning from out of town (DC area)–she went above and beyond, helping us to solidify all of the details. The team was flawless on the day of, we did not have to do anything but enjoy the best day of our lives!

My experience with Parque far beyond exceeded my expectations- from the venue to their professionalism to the quality of the food- there was no detail that wasn’t exquisite. It has been 3 months since our wedding and my guests tell me how beautiful the venue was and that the food was amazing! They even name the particular appetizers that they loved. While the costs are at parity with other Main Line Venues, there were some value adds that I didn’t anticipate. The venue has to work within state park regulations which are annoying (everyone out by 10 pm, no overnight parking, the grounds are public so people can watch, all decorations must leave by 10pm, etc) . Parque does an awesome job to accommodate these requirements and provides exceptional service to off-set these regulations. I would highly recommend Parque!

I stumbled across this gorgeous venue through a photographer blog because I was googling unique/garden wedding venues. When I saw just pictures online, I fell in love – in person this venue is simply breath taking. It is so quiet and serene, and SO much space for photos, guests to explore, and feel like you are in your own pocket of nature. Peachtree Catering company who owns and runs this venue is phenomenal. Between answering my many emails/questions quickly, personalizing meals for my sister who has multiple food allergies, customizing the menu, and service the day of – there is no one better. ALL my guests were RAVING about how they never had food that amazing at a wedding, from the hors d’oeuvres, salad, entree & desserts, everyone was in awe. You get to select a lot of options and we had dinner served family style which our guests loved! The service throughout cocktail hour and dinner was superb. No guest went unnoticed and dinner service was efficient. I even saw the owner walking around during dinner checking on guests to make sure everything was ok. The attendant who was with us (bride & groom) for the day was so perfect and attentive. She was so thoughtful she even brought our drinks outside when she noticed our photographer wanted more photos in the middle of the reception. I can not say enough wonderful things about this venue. My bridesmaids said they have never been part of a wedding where EVERYTHING went smoothly and there was not one single problem throughout the day. Look no further than this venue and this catering company for the most perfect wedding day!

Incredible catering company and venue!! We were married at Parque – the exclusive Peachtree venue at Ridley Creek State Park. I cannot recommend this caterer and venue enough. The food was honestly the best food I have ever had at a wedding and the service was more than I could ever have expected. After the tasting, I knew I was not going to be one of those brides who says she never ate anything at her wedding – and I wasn’t! I ate every single bite of my dinner and it was to die for!

Staff took care of every single detail and the guests are still talking about how impeccable the event was. I had several guests with food allergies or special needs that the serving staff checked in with regularly to make sure that they were enjoying their meal and that their allergies were properly attended to. My husband and I had an attendant who made sure we always had a drink in our hand and one of every dessert!! The entire serving staff was kind and attentive and service felt like we were eating in a fine dining restaurant.

The venue itself is gorgeous. It feels as though you are transported back in time. The ballroom has gorgeous wood paneled walls and floor to ceiling window. The ceiling is decorated with plaster relief. There is a grand staircase with a gorgeous chandelier that makes for gorgeous photos and the gardens outside offer several beautiful ceremony sites. The terrace that wraps around the mansion is a perfect spot for an outdoor cocktail hour. There is also a large bridal suite and a small groom’s room. I had 15 people getting ready with hair and makeup in the suite and we had more than enough room to be comfortable. The bridal suite has amazing windows and light for photos. We had 112 guests (12 table and a sweetheart table) along with a 6-piece band and dance floor. I felt like this was the perfect size wedding for the space.

Lori, Jon, and Bridget,

We are truly at a loss for words.  Last night was magical.  We could not have imagined a better day.  Thank you for your attention to detail, impeccable service, and delicious food.  We were floored and our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.  They went on and on about the food and the serving staff.

Brooke was especially amazing.  I didn’t get to hug her goodbye and tell her how grateful we were for her.  She is like a ray of sunshine – and she anticipated everything we could have needed before we even though of it ourselves.  Please let her know that we think she is wonderful and that she made our night extra special.

I think it was fate that we found the mansion and found you.  You gave us the wedding of our dreams and we don’t have the words to tell us how much that means to us.

Lastly, thank you for the lovely bottle of champagne.  I’m not sure if that is a gift you give all your couples or if you heard me talk about champagne so much that you knew we would enjoy it.  Either way – we loved it.  It was such a special touch!

Juliana sent a few preview photos that I thought you might like to see!  I’ll send through others once I have them.

Best,

Jackie and Justin

Dear Jon and Lori,

Although this is long overdue, we really want to thank you for making sure our wedding day was an amazing one. You, and everyone in your staff worked so hard to make sure everything went smoothly. Everything was amazing, even better than I imagined it would be. Our guests were so impressed with the venue, and even the pickiest eaters commented on how great the food was.

We just got our wedding pictures back, and I still can’t believe that I had this fairytale wedding – I can’t thank you enough for working with us over few months and streamlining every detail. I want to share some pictures with you our photographers Ian and DJ from Viva Love Photography took – it captures Parque in all its glory!

Again, thank you so much…

Sincerely,

Gözde and Christian

Hello to All-

Just a quick note of thanks for all the amazing work you all did to help make Lauren and David Kalos’ wedding such a huge success.  It was my utmost pleasure to work with you all throughout the planning process and on the wedding day.  I appreciated the quick responses, ease of working with me/others to make sure things happened, flexibility and knowledge, and incredible food that you all brought to the table.  Every person that I had the opportunity to work with/talk to on Saturday was beyond helpful and accommodating.  That is pretty unique for a venue!  Especially a venue that has some logistical challenges -the kitchen being so far away and the fast load out time etc… it could spell a lot of unhappy staff members but every one of them was so polite and helpful it was a breath of fresh air.  I hope that Lauren and David and their families were as impressed as I was with their entire experience. I know that their guests were as I had so many come up to me to tell me what a wonderful time they had and how wonderful the entire day had been. I know how much you all went above and beyond with meetings, phone conference calls, separate tastings etc.. to make sure that they were happy. That level of attention to detail and experience is not seen enough within this industry.  It was evident in the care you all took – not only focusing on the success of the event but also making sure your clients were happy.  Parque is a beautiful and unique venue that will certainly be a  wonderful addition to the Peachtree and Ward brand. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you all again in the future and I thank you very much for everything that you did to ensure such a beautiful event.

If I can ever be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again,

Kameron

Bridget, Jon, Lori and Michelle (and Jen!):

We wanted to formally thank you for truly making our Wedding day more than we could have ever dreamed. Wedding planning proved to be A LOT more than I anticipated and you all were so helpful along the way and I know there was a lot of back & forth and coordination but I thank you for your willingness to compromise with me on things. As the details fell into place that day I was so grateful for how helpful and attentive the staff was and I truly felt at ease right away and all the way through the end – no stress at all. We had the BEST day and so did all of our friends and family. I can’t count how many compliments we received on the food, the service, the venue, the grounds, etc. – all of the things that truly make a wedding day special. My mom even said the crabcakes were amazing! 😉 I know we are the ones that selected the venue and its obvious why but as we were in the moment on Saturday I really found myself appreciating how truly beautiful Parque is, the absolute perfect setting for a wedding in our opinion.
Thank you again for everything and for the complimentary champagne – such a sweet gesture! Please let me know where we can leave a formal review that would be most helpful for you and I am more than happy to share our professional photography with you once we receive it for your marketing purposes.
All the best,
The Badolatos

My husband and I got married at Parque at Ridley Creek State Park and Peachtree Catering was a DREAM to work with. First off, Parque is such a unique and gorgeous venue. You will love the big fountain, garden area, bridal suite… the grounds and mansion are beautiful. Peachtree just makes it even better! They were very flexible with the menu and set up options. If you do not know yet, Peachtree is KNOWN for their amazing food! For me, one of the most important aspects of choosing a venue was that our guests would enjoy their meals and Peachtree definitely delivered. Everybody commented on the food quality and how beautiful everything was. I worked very closely with Lori for the floorplan and actually chose the very first one she made for us– we were just that in sync! We worked with Meghan on the day-of and she executed everything flawlessly. Thank you, Peachtree and team, for helping us throw the biggest party of our lives. We love you!
