From our Parque clients



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.

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…


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,

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!
