Vendor Testimonials

I have had the privilege of photographing weddings at Burge for over 20 years. As a photographer I am always delighted to find the bride has selected Burge as their venue. They have continually updated their facilities and provide many picturesque locations for photography. The accommodating staff is always sensitive to the bride’s needs. The food presentations and flavor are unequaled.

Working with Burge has always been a wonderful experience for us. In just a short drive from Atlanta and you find yourself at the farm in a beautiful country side. The staff is friendly, more than accommodating, and always ready to help. Burge works in collaboration with their vendors to insure the success of every wedding and event. We love working with their team and know that every wedding will be flawlessly executed.

As a vendor/performer, I get to work at a lot of different venues throughout the southeast. They all have their little quirks and obstacles but the folks at Burge have actually given thought to things like, layout, accessibility, and convenience. It is always a pleasure working with them and I really appreciate the fact that they love their clients as much as I do! And the facility – can you say gorgeous! If you are looking for an outdoor venue the main house offers an incredible backdrop for your ceremony with plenty of room for larger celebrations – and just wait ‘til you taste the culinary excellence that chef is preparing (did you know that he has his own herb garden right there on site!) – talk about fresh.

I am proud to be a preferred vendor for the venue, and look forward to providing quality service for a quality destination for years to come!”
