  • This place is beyond amazing! The atmosphere is astonishing! I can't wait to have our wedding here!

  • Grandsons wedding at Cold Creek Farm. Everything was exceptional, venue, staff, DJ. food was very good. Would highly recommend this venue.

  • 02/02/19 was the best day of my life. It was the day that I married my best friend, Chelsea. Cold Creek Farms was the best venue that we could possibly choose. Jeff, Susan, Carla, and the rest of the Cold Creek Farm Staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make our "special" day even more special. Friends and family have not stop talking about how beautiful our whole wedding experience was. I recommend all upcoming Brides and Grooms to consider Cold Creek Farms for your wedding. I guarantee that you won't be disappointed

  • Gorgeous wedding venue!

  • Came here for a wedding and I have got to say I was highly impressed. Excellent venue, service was top end and it was a great location

  • This place is such a gorgeous place for a wedding! The staff was amazing too. My cousin's wedding was perfect!

  • We attended a wedding at Cold Creek Farm recently and it's a very nice place for a medium to small wedding

  • We were just at a wedding this past weekend. It was perfect. Such a professional job put on by the owners and coordinator. Surprised by the best food I ever had at a wedding.

  • The idea of having a “destination wedding” (we live in New York) was daunting as an idea alone. After hours and hour and HOURS searching for that place that caught our interest (the list was slim) we came across Cold Creek Farm. It looked like the closest thing to our ideal scene so we decided to fly down for a weekend and check it out. Our prayers were answered the moment we met Jeff and Susan and we decided that day to book our date. CCF was actually the first and only tour we did! Jeff and Susan really made you feel like family and we immediately felt that we were in the right hands. They took care of E V E R Y T H I N G which made planning a wedding long distance turn from the nightmare scenario into the dream that it should be. They totally worked with us in every detail and at the vendor’s meeting we had the luxury of making all of final decisions all at once. This is also where we met our photographer, Cait Carr (Bobo), who to this day we still consider one of the most stunning wedding photographers ever. Such a blessing to have these wonderful people with us on our most special day.

  • We actually came across Cold Creek Farm through an AD on facebook. We had a list of venues to tour but Cold Creek was definitely at the top of our list. Other venues we good, but Cold Creek was everything we were looking for in a wedding venue and more. Their all-inclusive packages are truly all-inclusive and at a price we couldn't beat. I'm a true believer in "you get what you pay for" and Cold Creek far exceeded that. Cold Creek made wedding planning so easy and so seamless. Our Coordinator - Lauren - was on top of everything and we couldn't have asked for a better day-of coordinator, she was amazing! Carla was always so quick to answer any questions I had and was always so helpful. Jeff and Susan opened up their home to us (as they do to all their guests) and allowed us to have a perfect fairy tale wedding. Carla was always so quick to answer any questions I had and was always so helpful.

    Thanks for hosting our perfect --FOREVER-- Cold Creek!!!,

    Matthew and Calyn Bell

  • We have worked with this great venue for few years now. Working with these folks is fun and the venue is wonderful in many ways. We love the landscaping and animals around the venue. Its just a great place to have an event! You won't be disappointed!

  • My husband and I got married at Cold Creek Farm on November 5th and it was everything we could have dreamed of!! The decorators were very accommodating and attentive to our request. The food from Big Girl's catering was AMAZING, as was our cake/cupcakes/mini pies from Cake House On Main!! Amber Stewart, our coordinator, is super sweet and was amazing from the moment we booked her! Everyone we worked with at the farm was very helpful through out the entire process! Jeff and Susan, the owners, are such awesome people to work with! If you are looking for an all inclusive Barn wedding venue, then I would HIGHLY recommend Cold Creek Farm!

  • Cold Creek Farm is the perfect venue for a wedding. The farm is stunning and makes a majestic backdrop for photos. We chose to work with Cait Carr Bobo, who is the most talented photographer. She captured the beauty of the day with such ease. [You should check her out now.]

    The groom's cabin, bridal suite, ceremony setting, cocktail patio, and indoor dining/dancing area are incredible. Each are specifically designed to make sure you, your partner, and your guests have the absolute best day. You can bring in your photos, signs, decorations, etc. to personalize the space.

    Jeff, Susan, Cait, and their staff were kinder than I could have ever imagined. At each vendor meeting, they held personable conversations with us, remembered who we were, when our wedding was scheduled, and details about our day. When I saw potential rain in the forecast, I called Jeff immediately and he assured me that our wedding day would be perfect no matter the weather conditions. Looking back, I was admittedly a bit dramatic about the rain, but if you've seen the outdoor ceremony space and brides ascending down the bridal suite staircase, you would understand.

    Everything about the planning process with Cold Creek Farm from the first tour to the end of the wedding was flawless. The vendors that partner with Cold Creek Farm work so well together and truly want you to have the day of your dreams. [Quick shout out to our wedding coordinator, Erin Bruce, who went on a beer run mid-reception.]

    I recommend this venue to everyone. I cannot wait to attend future weddings, book photography sessions, and plan our anniversary parties at Cold Creek Farm. You will not regret your decision.

  • Great place for any event. The staff was super friendly. The views and scennery are incredible. Will definitely think about this place for my next event.

  • My wife and I want to thank Jeff, Carla, Jessica, and all the Cold Creek staff for making our daughter's wedding a truly special event. The Farm is beautiful and the occasion could not have been better. Almost all of our guests were from out of town and could not stop complimenting us on such a beautiful venue, awesome food and drink, and supportive staff. One of our guests even said that she had been to over 30 weddings and had never seen someone who drew caricatures. They loved the artist. Furthermore, the handmade ice cream was a huge hit as was the photo booth. The groom (boy's) cabin was great and the bride's loved the hair and make-up ladies very much. All-in-all, we cannot stop raving about how everything was terrific. Jeff, thank you for checking with me many times throughout the reception to make sure that guests and I were satisfied. Your attentiveness and thoughtfulness were greatly appreciated. Thank you for making Alexis' and Daniel's day a most memorable one.

  • My husband and I chose Cold Creek immediately when we finished our walk through. We fell in love with the simplicity and beauty it has. Jeff and Carla are truly AMAZING! They are by your side every step of the way. The main thing I loved was the vendor meetings. The vendor meetings helped us choose vendors so much easier. It was perfect. Our day was flawless! We couldn’t have chosen a better place and team to help celebrate our day!

  • When my now husband and I visited Cold Creek Farm it was the first and only wedding venue we toured. We knew right then that it would be perfect for our special day! Everyone we encountered was so nice and accommodating. They made sure to listen to our vision for our wedding and then exceed every expectation. We could not have chosen a better place to get married. Their vendor meetings helped the planning process to be stress free. This allowed us to have the most peaceful wedding day because we knew everything was taken care of! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for all that you did to help our dream wedding come to life!

  • Pretty nice venue. Very laid out and thought of when having an event here. If you like a countryside wedding this is a very good suggestion

  • If you want to sit back and really soak in your wedding day, Cold Creek Farm is where to go! The staff is beyond helpful and make sure you’re day flows and you can just enjoy every second. The property is beautiful for photos and plenty of space for any size wedding, Big or Small! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have a magical wedding in Georgia!! ????????

  • We had an absolutely wonderful wedding at Cold Creek Farm!! It was exactly what I had envisioned for our wedding. All the vendors were wonderful that we had chosen through Cold Creek and just the venue itself was amazing and perfect. I could not imagine a better place to have a rustic scenic wedding in North Georgia! Carla was always so willing to help answer all our questions! Thank you so much for letting us celebrate our wedding at your venue Jeff and Susan!! Would recommend to anyone getting married!!

  • My wedding at CCF was absolutely AMAZING!!!! Everything was taken care of and exactly how I imagined it, with NO stress! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! so beautiful, and the staff was so friendly. Jeff was always there to answer anything I needed, always a call or text away. Thank you CCF for making our day PERFECT!!!

  • Beautiful venue and the owners, Susan and Jeff, were great to work with. Highly recommend working with Jules, if possible. She made my day! There were a few issues but the owners were very responsive and understanding in addressing them.

  • We fell in love with Cold Creek the first day we went and saw it! The staff is super friendly and helps execute everything for you. Carla is amazing! She handled everything and was always available to help with anything we might need. They made setup and clean up a breeze for our families and we are so appreciative of that! They also have vendor meetings periodically and this helped us find some incredible people- photographer, caterer, photo booth, florist etc. They were lacking in the DJ and Videographer area- felt like they could've had more/better options for that. They have a great back up plan for rain/cold and can adapt to any weather situation which was a real draw for us! The space is beautiful and they are continuously making upgrades to the property so it will just keep getting better and better! My only complaints were the grooms cabin is not heated- the guys froze on the wedding day. Lastly they have a fair amount of religious symbols around the property which did not really fit our style- when asked if we could cover or take them down for our day we were told no. While I do respect the beliefs of others it does make it difficult for couples to make it fully their day. Overall we loved our wedding at Cold Creek farm and so did all of our guests! I would recommend this venue to anyone. The staff is top notch and the owners are true sweethearts- you won't regret it!

  • We married in September, and we still hear from family and friends how beautiful our wedding was. We had such a great experience working with Jeff, Susan, Carla, and the whole staff involved. Absolutely gorgeous venue, and their packages make it so much easier to select vendors for everything. Highly recommend!

  • Last year, I chose this wedding venue for my upcoming wedding. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the wedding. The terms were once they filled the date, I would receive most of my deposit back. These past 12 months between my father and I, we contacted Jeff multiple times. He finally acknowledged in July 2019 that they had rebooked the date. Jeff stated he would send an excel spreadsheet showing the refund calculation and follow that up with a check. We never received either. We contacted him multiple times to which he has not returned our calls. This venue is beautiful and normally I would recommend it to any future bridal couple but due to the poor service we have received, I have nothing positive to say.

  • I cannot day enough good things about Cold Creek Farm and every person that works there! They truly made our wedding day perfect and beautiful. From the day we booked our wedding date until the actual day itself, they made sure all our needs and wants were met! The entire planning process was made so easy for us. We would recommend Cold Creek Farms to anyone!

  • The wedding this weekend for my niece was like a Disney movie...everything was attended to, details covered, venue was beautiful and food fantastic!!! Couldn't have been any better!!

  • I would love to give Cold Creek Farm a high rating, but because of the problems we encountered with one of the owners, I cannot. The venue is beautiful and our daughter's December, Christmas-themed wedding was gorgeous and magical. Luckily none of our guests were aware of the issues behind the scenes. Communication was definitely lacking. We booked the Farm almost a year in advance and Jeff was very informative and friendly. However, his job is solely to book events and accept money. When I began contacting vendors 5-6 months in advance to discuss wedding plans, I was told "it's too early". Apparently they don't speak with you until a month before the wedding. Having hosted three previous weddings, this was surprising. When my daughter asked (several times) to see the venue again for placement of our decor and accessories, she was told she could only come to the vendor open house. This would be very difficult with hundreds of other guests there at the same time. This was also when we were expected to discuss plans with the vendors! Basically everything is done over the phone. On the day of the wedding there were numerous issues. After the wedding when I raised these issues with Susan, she took no responsibility and offered no apology. She tried to shift the blame to us or her vendors, claiming she had nothing to do with the vendors. These are the vendors who are contracted through Cold Creek. When one is paying tens of thousands of dollars for a wedding, it is expected that things would be done correctly. If things go wrong, the venue should take responsibility. The bouquets were beautiful, but one was missing. The desserts were delicious, but the cake was not as discussed (it had been discussed 3x before the wedding, including pictures). The food was outstanding, but I was approached during the reception and asked if I had brought containers for leftovers (would a mother of the bride be expected to bring containers to the wedding?). The decorations looked great, but the centerpieces were not set up as discussed and were literally thrown into boxes at break-down following the wedding (and one item was broken). I had a detailed, itemized list on every box, which matched the list of the coordinator. It appears our photographer did a great job, as evidenced by the proofs, however 8-12 weeks is an extremely long time to wait for pictures. Our officiant, Terry, was fantastic, as was our DJ. The employees were helpful and friendly (despite the issue with the centerpieces and break-down) and our coordinator, Kaitlin, was the best (she was our second, as the first never showed up for our meeting). Their publicized "all-inclusive" rates need to be clarified. Each of the vendors has different ad-ons, which need to be reviewed prior to booking. During the few discussions we had, Susan was cold, even to the point of being rude. She was even more rude when I brought up the issues we had, rather than take responsibility or apologize. Think twice before booking this venue! You may pay a little more elsewhere, but at least you will know what you're getting!

  • We had our wedding at Cold Creek Farm on May 5th. This venue is rustic and so beautiful! Jeff and his team were wonderful and helpful throughout the entire process. They made the entire process as stressfree as it could be.

    The package we selected included just about everything you would ever need for your wedding, plus more. All of the vendors used at our wedding, we selected through the Cold Creek Farm preferred vendors. We got to meet all of them at the vendor meetings, which were so fun and really made the process a lot easier. All the vendors are the best of the best.

    Everything turned out so perfect, and we can't imagine having our wedding any other way. We would highly recommend Cold Creek Farm for your wedding :)

  • My wedding was beyond amazing!!! This venue does a really great job of making sure your big day is perfect, and they make the planning process incredibly easy! Everyone who works at the farm is so nice and will bend over backwards for you. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was no AC in the barn, and my wedding was in August. I was told that they would have AC units installed by then, but that didn’t happen and it was very toasty all night. Also, when the DJs plugged in one of their speakers, they blew a circuit and all the power went out. But they got it fixed and the staff was very accommodating and added extra time to our reception to make up for this. Overall, great venue with great people working there. Highly recommend!

  • Wow! How could we ever begin to express how blessed we were to have had  the opportunity to work with Susan And Jeff from Cold Creek Farm. From  the minute we walked on the property to meet them, we knew that God had  brought us to the right place. Although we were their first wedding  reception held at the barn, I know that there will be many more events  to come for this perfect location. The setting is absolutely gorgeous,  and Susan, Jeff, and their families went above and beyond the call of  duty. They were such a big help in preparing for our day, and continued  this help throughout and after our wedding to help make sure everything  fell right into place! Everything was PERFECT and we couldn’t be any  happier with our experience there! Susan and Jeff are two of the easiest people to work with, which is so important when planning an event like a wedding reception. We would highly recommend Cold Creek Farm to anyone  looking for the perfect venue for any event, and pray that God would  continue to bless the farm, Susan, Jeff, and anyone involved with Cold  Creek Farm!

  • A huge thank you to Cold Creek Farm for making our daughter and  son-in-laws’ wedding a very blessed event. The owners, Susan and Jeff  are very easy to work with. The evening flowed seamlessly due to the lay out of the venue and their availability throughout the evening to  answer any questions we had. The landscaping is gorgeous and provided  plenty of photo opportunities. We have received so many compliments  regarding what a great place we picked. They are continuously upgrading  the venue to provide and account for any need you may have. Memories we  will cherish forever.

  • Cold Creek Farm is such a beautiful place for any event. We were blessed to have been able to have an amazing wedding reception there on  Saturday night for Kevin and Lauren! The hospitality of the owners Susan and Jeff cannot be explained in words, God puts people in your life as  blessings and he out did himself this time. We were welcomed with open  arms and could not have asked for things to have gone any better. The  barn is so beautiful and the pictures and memories are all wonderful. If anyone is looking for a place to have an event, check out this place  you will not be sorry!! Thank you Susan and Jeff for everything and may  God continue to bless you all.

  • Not only are the owners the most caring people you will meet, their  venue is gorgeous and inviting! It’s refreshing knowing you can use a  venue that has love and care wrapped inside of it. Mr. And Mrs.  Buffington treat each bride and groom as their family!

  • Cold Creek Farm is such a lovely place to have a wedding. I’m so glad  that we were able to have ours there! The owners, Susan and Jeff, are  just the sweetest people! They helped us out so much! From organizing  small details, to even helping us set stuff up for the wedding, they  really helped us out. The venue itself is gorgeous! It’s such a simple,  yet elegant place. I would definitely recommend this venue for weddings  and even other events!

  • Thank you so much for everything you and Jeff helped us with and did for us on the day of our wedding and leading up to it. It was more  beautiful than I could have imagined, even having seen it set up for  someone else’s wedding! I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk to you on the  actual night. Things are a little crazy at a wedding, go figure! lol.  After our first venue fell through, I was heartbroken at having lost  what I had wanted so badly to be the setting of our wedding. But I  realize (actually I realized a long time ago) it was the most fortunate  thing that could have happened. Cold Creek was perfect and was  everything I wanted. You and Jeff were so patient, kind and helpful. I  will never be able to express my gratitude to you. I can’t wait to see  the photos and share them with you! I bet the photographers captured  some amazing photos of the farm. Thank you again!

  • Susan and her staff are detailed, thorough and there for your every  need. Above all, you will not find more gorgeous facility for your  ceremony and reception. You literally will arrive, get ready, get  married, party like a rockstar, and leave. EVERYTHING else is taken care of with the utmost detail and thoughtfulness. Book them now!

  • Still on cloud 9 from the perfect day we had at Cold Creek Farm.  Professional staff, gorgeous venue, and so much love. We will cherish  the memories we made in the barn under the lights on the best day of our lives! Thank you to CCF for giving us our fairytale wedding.

  • LOVE Love love Cold Creek Farm!!!!! We went and viewed CCF in October of 2014 and instantly fell in love with the venue!!! It was beautiful then but is now even more breath taking with all the additions!!! Another  reason we chose CCF is because of the wonderful staff!! Jeff and Susan  are phenomenal!!! For 10 months they answered every phone call and email of questions I had promptly and helpfully! Jeff, Susan, and our  fabulous wedding coordinator Jonathan took away SO MUCH wedding  stress!!! They truly strive to please their clients and want your day to be PERFECT!! We recently just had our wedding on August 22, 2015 and  could not have imagined it going any better!!! The decorations,  coordinating, catering, DJs, just everything was exactly how we wanted  it!!! Thank you everyone at Cold Creek Farm for making our wedding day  dreams come true!!!

  • Amazing Venue! Jeff and Susan helped to make our day special…we went to a few vendor meetings which helped us to choose our vendors but anytime  we had a question through the planning they immediately reached back out and answered our questions. During the day of the wedding, Susan kept  in touch with me to make sure everything was set up the way I wanted so I didn’t have to worry about anything. Everyone that attended our wedding or saw pictures told me how beautiful the venue was and I couldn’t  agree more!

  • We had our wedding at Cold Creek Farm two weeks ago, and it was exactly what a wedding day should be. We chose to go with the all-inclusive package that this venue offers and were not  disappointed. The team that was assembled for our big day was what I  call “the dream team”. Never have I heard so many compliments on every  aspect of a wedding- and lucky me, it was mine! The owners- Susan and  Jeff- are basically the nicest people you will ever meet- besides the  photographer that we chose, Cait Carr Photography.
    I was planning my wedding from afar- living in New York and dreaming of a wedding near my hometown in Georgia. My mother found CCF and sent me a  link right here on Facebook. This was it for me. I had looked for hours  and hours at several different barn venues online and was basically  completely worn out. When I saw the photos of this venue, I instantly  fell in love. In fact, when I came home for a long weekend, Cold Creek  was the only venue I even bothered to see in person. This charming and  operational animal farm (yes- there were horses, donkeys, chickens, dogs and probably other animals I didn’t get to see and no, it doesn’t smell like a working farm) was so stunning there was nothing I had seen that  could compare to it. Surrounded for what seemed like one hundred miles  by forests, rolling hills and grassy plains, this was the venue of my  dreams.
    Susan and Jeff made planning a wedding (you know, the biggest day of your life!!) so easy, and worked so well with me, putting up  with any questions I had at any hour, which was probably the reason why  so many people told me “I was the calmest bride they had ever met”. I  especially loved the flexibility they allowed me, with any suggestion I  came to them with i.e. the flower arrangements- one thing I made clear  was that I HATE baby’s breath. Well they had had loads left over from a  wedding the day before and when I saw it Jeff calmly said, “don’t worry, we know you hate it! It’ll be gone by the ceremony”. This really showed me the care that the team puts into every wedding, remembering small  details of each, not getting caught up in any one of the many weddings  I’m sure they do every week.
    When I arrived to the farm on my wedding day, everything was completely set-up and ready for me, down to the  wedding favors being placed at every guest’s seat, and the toasting  glasses placed where we were seated.
    As far as Cold Creek Farm goes, I agree with my guests wholeheartedly- this really was the BEST wedding ever.
