Testimonials

“Hurricane Matthew forced us to cancel our wedding at FFGC in October 2016, and Dawn could not have been more kind and accommodating as we dealt with the stress and logistics of planning an on-the-fly wedding ceremony on our honeymoon. Dawn gave us great options for rescheduling our reception, and we had an amazing event early April. The grounds were prettier than I remembered, our photos taken outside turned out beautiful, and the space was exactly what we’d hoped for. The onsite coordinator was friendly and helpful. If you’re considering having your wedding at FFGC, don’t hesitate to book your date! It’s simple yet elegant, and a blank canvas that you can really do anything with. The stage is perfect for your sweetheart table, the outdoor space is open enough to accommodate your ceremony/cocktail reception, but small enough that it creates an intimate garden-like wedding experience. I can’t say enough about Dawn, her team and the wonderful wedding we finally got to have. Thank you!!!!!! —-Donna 4/22/17

“Dawn was always a pleasure to work with. She answered all of our questions quickly and she let us stop by whenever we needed to double check everything. The venue itself is a hidden gem… There was plenty of free parking for our guests. It is located in a residential area but feels super secluded. There are lush trees, including cypress trees with gorgeous Spanish moss, in and around the outdoor area which provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding. All of our guests were raving about the location and how beautiful and perfect everything was… There are two private rooms for changing or storage of your personal items, at least two large bathrooms for your guests. Everything was spotless! There was also a large hall indoors that was very nice with a stage area, but the garden/outdoor area is so beautiful, we just had to take advantage! This venue provides several options for your perfect wedding, and it is so affordable! I can’t say enough about this place! Thank you again, Dawn!”  — Maria 11/05/2016
