I’ve been married for some time now, but I can still distinctly remember the process of planning my wedding. I recall feeling so overwhelmed by all the decisions I had to make: the flowers, cake, music, venue, officiant, seating… the list goes on and on. When you think about it, professional event planners need years of experience to organize something as complex as most traditional weddings, and many brides have very little (or even zero) experience when they sit down to plan their big day.


When Gray and I started to host small events at our North Georgia wedding venue, we knew we wanted to create all-inclusive packages that would provide couples with everything they need to have a beautiful wedding ceremony and small reception. Not only is it easier on couples to have everything available on-site rather than having to bring in outside vendors (and manage them) on the wedding day, we knew we could also save couples money by taking care of everything ourselves.

The Venue

There are so many reasons couples are choosing smaller venues for their big day, but whatever your reason, we don’t think “going small” has to be a sacrifice. Burruss Mill Falls has as much historic charm as any Pinterest-worthy rustic wedding, and it also has an enchanting waterfall and serene wooded area that plateaus into acres of rich, green pastures. It’s a venue straight out of your favorite childhood fairy tale, and when it comes to North Georgia wedding venues, we don’t think you’ll find anything quite like it.

All of our wedding packages include full access to the entire property, which we will set up for your special day with chairs for your guests, tables, flowers, and any other personal touches that will make your dream wedding day a reality. Our packages include private use of the venue for 2, 3, or 4 hours. Whether you’re planning a private elopement wedding or a small garden wedding with up to 20 guests, we can create the perfect setting for your specific needs.


The Ceremony

While it’s nice to have a celebration to mark such a momentous occasion, your wedding day is really about the promise that you’re making to your partner. You deserve a beautiful ceremony that’s centered around what matters most to you. Gray Smith wears many hats at Burruss Mill Falls. He’s owner and operator, he’s our master gardener, and he’s also an ordained minister. He has performed many faith-based and secular ceremonies on site, and he believes in working closely with couples to create a ceremony that truly reflects their unique beliefs and the love they share.


One of our recent brides reached out after her wedding to thank us and let Gray know that he was “the perfect officiant.” She mentioned how sincere he was and said she couldn’t imagine anyone else marrying her and her husband. I know Gray considers it to be an honor to be involved in such a significant part of the wedding day, and he doesn’t take the responsibility lightly. Couples are always welcome to bring in their own officiant if they prefer, but we like to make things easy and having this service available is just one way we’re able to do that.

The Bells and Whistles

Each of our packages is a little different when it comes to the extras that are included, but we make sure that no matter what your budget is, you have everything you need for a truly memorable and special day. All of our packages include professional photography to capture the best moments of your beautiful day. You’ll receive the unedited images, and you can do whatever you want with them. There are no restrictions and you don’t have to pay to download or print them!


All three of our packages also include florals for the wedding couple and celebration music to set the right tone and ambiance for the day. Most of our packages also include an elegant wedding cake and sparkling cider for you and your guests to sip and toast with. If you’re interested in serving hors d’oeuvres, we can also arrange for them to be catered in for an additional fee. Just say the word, and we’ll take care of everything!
