My husband and I had our reception at the Defoor Centre April 18, 2015. We were beyond thrilled with the experience of planning and the results. Davina Law was my contact and she was professional and accommodating and helped to relax me when it got stressful. She and her team executed all our plans flawlessly for the installation. The food and the service was also impeccable. The cake was fantastic. It was truly more than I even expected. We can't thank the Defoor team enough.

I would like to highly recommend the Defoor Center as a venue for a wedding. From the beginning to end the coordinator Michelle was so accommodating. I didn't really have a vision but Michelle made my wedding day stress free and beautiful beyond what I could have ever imagined. The staff was pleasant and overly accommodating. There were things that I should have done and was supposed to do that Michelle did for me. If I had to choose a venue all over again I wouldn't change a thing. My family and I were treated like royalty by the staff. My family and friends are still talking about our wedding to this day and I continue to get inquiries and about this venue and again I definitely recommend to all brides and grooms or anyone that would like to have an event.

I recently had my wedding at the Defoor Centre, and it was an awesome experience. Michelle is an excellent coordinator who bends over backwards to make your wedding exactly what you want it to be. We had the ceremony in the Forum room, then moved to the bar area for cocktail hour, then moved to the Encore room for the reception. The Forum is very classy with huge artwork on the walls and a giant chandelier in the center of the room. The Encore is a loft-type space with paper lanterns hanging from the rafters. It was so gorgeous. They also take care of the food and the cake, which were all excellent. The cake looked exactly like the photo I gave Michelle to model it from. When you consider everything that is included in the price - venue, food, cake (even centerpieces if you want to use the black candelabras they have) it is a very reasonable price for Atlanta. My guests were talking about the food and the awesome staff for days.

Choosing the Defoor Centre as the location for my wedding and reception was the single best decision I made in the entire wedding planning process.

Not only did they do an exceptional job providing catering, bar tending and an AMAZING cake, but they also provided an on-site coordinator who helped up through every step and was there to provide much needed help on the day of the actual wedding. She even sat with me and helped get a few sudden stains out of the train of my dress!

The food was delicious, the drinks were kept filled and the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I HIGHLY recommend the Defoor Centre to anyone looking for a unique and classy place to hold an event.

I highly recommend the Defoor Centre to all brides! This staff will go above and beyond to make your day special. You,your family,& bridal party will be well taken care of from the time you arrive to the time you depart. I had planner Michelle Davidson and she truly made me feel like a princess!She was so accommodating to what I wanted & worked hard to get me everything I wanted within our budget. I got the wedding reception of my dreams & the Defoor Centre and Michelle Davidson made it all possible. If you're looking for something different & unique, this is the place to go. The forum is beautifully furnished with amazing artwork. The food is scrumptious as well as the wedding cake of your choice. There is not one negative thing I have to say about this place or the staff. They will give you exactly what you desire from casual to formal depending on your taste. You can feel good about leaving your big day in the hands of this staff & you won't be sorry!
