Gorgeous scenery. Worth the drive.

Amazing venue with breaktaking views! Where do I start. Vezalay is an amazing venue with gorgeous views of the north Georgia mountains. The owner is very easy to work with and is all about his clients’ having a wonderful experience. Having seen most venues in the area, I have to say, Vezalay is a gem and my favorite!

As the very first bride of Vezalay, I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience at this venue! Doug, the owner, was so responsive, thoughtful, and gracious in all things. I have lived in this area my entire life, so finding a venue close to home that wasn’t a barn or winery was something that I found incredibly challenging. I wanted something that incorporated the mountains that I love so much, but never expected to find anything like this. The views of Vezalay were breathtaking, even for me. We used the ceremony site, event center, and the cottage for our wedding weekend and did not stop hearing compliments and praise from our guests all night and even since. So many selfies and pictures with that backdrop of the Blue Ridge mountains! The cottage is perfect for brides and bridal party hair and makeup - our stylist actually said it was the best venue for hair/makeup lighting that she had worked before. The ceremony, reception, and all other aspects of the wedding were incredible because of this venue and Doug’s attention to detail. The deck was a popular spot, even on a chilly night, because of the gas fire pit that so many people gravitate toward. The kitchen had everything you could need for a catering company. The sound, the lighting, the layout...all exceptional. The space more than fit our 100 guests with plenty of room left over. Bigger weddings will have no problem with the space. I have no doubt that this will be one of the most popular venues in Northeast Georgia in no time at all, and I’m forever grateful to be the first bride to fall in love with it!

Mann For All Occasions were the 1st DJ's to spread the sound around for their inaugural wedding. The Martin's looked graceful and elegant at the well-manicured ceremony site. Photos ops were abundant, with a mantle of blue ridge mountains nestled in the background.
Doug has done a wonderful job of preparing the Lodge with a spacious deck and polished floors. Even on our chilly evening, guests were able to warm themselves outside by the gas-operated fire pit. The fireplace, inside, was a toasty element for the couple to sit before and smile for pics.
Plenty of electrical outlets inside and out, for extra lighting and vendor plug-ins. Clean kitchen and latrines, well-lit parking area with handicap spaces and Windows throughout.
I would thoroughly recommend this venue for all of its amenities and perks, as well as picturesque positioning in the North Georgia hills...

Amazing experience! Doug was a pleasure to work with! He did such an amazing job creating a beautiful wedding venue! I honestly don't think there are any other venues that offer as much flexibility as Vezalay. I was able to find my own florist, caterer, DJ - that helped me save so much money on my planning costs!

This venue was absolutely amazing. I was a wedding coordinator for a dear friend and by far, this was the most accommodating venue I have ever worked with. Doug, the owner, was kind enough to let us start loading in our decor two days before the wedding. The wedding party stayed in their adorable cottage on site the evening before the wedding and got ready there. The cottage was absolutely adorable, well equipped, beautiful decor and very clean. The wedding venue is HUGE with 360 views of the mountains. Thankfully this venue also thought through having plenty of bathrooms. There was a beautiful balcony as well, perfect for photos. Doug's site manager was also very attentive and super excited to help us when needed. Thanks again for a beautiful weekend. One we will never forget, and always will recommend.

This new wedding venue has an incredible and one-of-a-kind view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia. It is in Dahlonega, on Highway 52, closely and conveniently located to the main hub of the city.I have done weddings and an open house at Vezalay. There is a full bridal suite situated beside a well-manicured ceremony lawn on the property. Handicap parking spots are paved, and the remaining spaces are in an easy-to-navigate large gravel lot. The reception area features a small kitchen area, nice restrooms for men and women, a large seating area (100-125 comfortably), fireplace, front entrance with awning and a large back deck space with a propane-operated firepit. Both ceremony and reception areas have plentiful electrical outlets to accommodate nearly every need you'll encounter. Air conditioning and heat inside the reception area will be a nice amenity for you and your guests. Call Doug and tell him I advised you to setup a tour of the venue.

As soon as my fiancé and I pulled into the parking lot of this beautiful venue, we knew it was the place! Doug was very flexible and provided us with a lot of information to make planning our wedding a success!

I’m telling everyone I know about Vezalay! Hosting my daughter's wedding reception at Vezalay was the best decision! We were elated with our experience. Your facilities are lovely and you have situated them in a way that displays the magnificence of God’s beautiful creation! Everyone raved about how perfect it was! What they didn’t know, however, but I was quick to tell them, is how wonderful you were to work with. Absolutely, you made our experience enjoyable. I so appreciate your willingness to be so helpful! I will send everyone I know your way!
