How do I schedule a tour of Koury Farms?
We typically have set days each week based on what events are scheduled that week. Just give us a call, and we will get a tour booked.
What plans are in place in case it rains the day of my wedding?
For starters, our outdoor ceremony pavilion has a 200-guest seating capacity and is covered, so most of our weddings are conducted outside, even on rainy days. If the weather were to somehow make an outdoor ceremony too difficult, our main barn venue is large enough to seat 200 guests for your wedding ceremony while simultaneously having space to setup tables for a 200-guest reception.
Does Koury Farms host multiple weddings on the same day?
No! We honor the fact that this is the bride’s special day, and we will only host one bride per day.
Are tables and chairs included in the venue rental price?
Yes! We provide tables and chairs for up to 200 guests. We have both round and rectangular tables, and you can choose to use all round, all rectangular, or use a combination of both. We even have some farmhouse tables for use at no extra cost.
Do I have to setup and teardown tables and chairs?
No! We will meet with you about 30 days before your event to get the general layout for your tables and chairs. We will have them setup for you upon your arrival the morning of your event. We will also be responsible for the teardown that evening.
Does Koury Farms have a preferred vendors list?
Yes! We have numerous preferred vendors that have previously worked at our facility and typically provide discounts to our Koury Farms brides. Except for our bartenders, there is no requirement to use any of these preferred vendors.
Do we have to take out the trash during our event?
No! Your selected caterer and bartender will be responsible for their trash, and we will be responsible for your event trash and cleanup.
Is Koury Farms handicap accessible?
Yes! All of our structures and restrooms are handicap accessible. We also have some designated parking spaces to accommodate those guests.
Does the Koury Farms venue have heat/ air conditioning?
Yes! Our main barn venue which is 4,100 square feet and has a 200-guest capacity has both heat and air conditioning. In fact, this building can be completely climate controlled with only 2 large capacity units, but we have 4 units to ensure your comfort. In addition, we also have a climate-controlled Bridal Villa suite, which is 1,200 square feet in size.
Is your venue an actual farm? Does it have any scenic locations for photographs?
Yes! We have a vineyard that our covered outdoor pavilion overlooks. The view behind the vineyard is all hardwood trees that provide an ideal backdrop to frame our property, no matter what the season. As far as locations for photography, there are numerous locations with varying tree and plant types to choose from for your background. We have 4 whitewashed barn structures that can be used, the vineyard itself, and the wooded part of our property also provides its own unique style. You can take pictures where you would never have known you were anywhere but a vineyard, or a hidden wooded property, or on a farm with those classic wooden barn backdrops, and that is just the outside. Have you seen our Bridal Villa suite with all the high-end mirror and décor? What about our frosted natural light window rooms, or the classic elegance of our main barn structure?
Does Koury Farms have any décor items that can be used? Is there a cost associated with that?
Yes! We have a prop closet that currently contains over 700 items that can be borrowed for your wedding. There is no additional charge for using these items.
Does Koury Farms have any ceremony arbors that we can use? Is there a cost associated with that?
Yes! We have several arbors that can be borrowed for your wedding. There is no additional charge for using these arbors.

Yes! You can use whatever caterer you want to. While we have preferred caterers and vendors, you can use whichever caterer you want to (with no fee to do so) provided they are licensed and insured.
Can we bring our own alcohol?
Yes! Our facility is geared around you providing your own alcohol. We do require you use one of our preferred bartenders to serve all alcohol. No kegs are allowed.
Does Koury Farms have a two-day rental package?

Yes! We have on-site parking for up to 200 guests (100 to 110 parking spots). The parking is complimentary.
Are table linens provided in the venue rental price?
Linens are not included in our venue rental price. We always encourage our clients to first see if their selected caterer (or potentially other selected vendor) has linens already included in their price or could be added to their price for a minimal price. This could potentially result in some savings to you. If you still need help or another linen price to consider, we have teamed with a larger linen company that will provide you with our corporate discount, and will provide you with a quote to consider.
Does Koury Farms have any all-inclusive packages?
While our core business model revolves around providing a venue that gives our clients flexibility in planning their special day, if requested, we do have the ability to develop an all-inclusive price to meet your needs. If you are interested in an all-inclusive package, please email us, or give us a call at (706) 870-3987. There are several details that we will need to discuss in order for us to pull that price together for you.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept cash, check, Zelle, and Venmo.
Does Koury Farms provide a Day-of-Coordinator service? If so, what is the cost for that service?
Yes! While many brides have a wedding planner or a selected wedding party member to help make sure their special day runs smoothly, some brides prefer to have someone else who is familiar with our venue help them to keep the wedding day running on time and per the plan of events identified by the bride. As of July 15, 2022, the price for this additional service is $750.
Are there any hotels nearby?
Yes! There are 5 hotels within 3.5 miles of our venue. There are also several others in an 8-mile radius of our venue.
What hours will we have use of the venue?
Our venue opens up to you at 9:00am. You have use of our main Barn venue until 11:00pm (14 hours) and our Bridal Villa suite until 5:00pm (8 hours).
What kind of restrictions do you have?
We try to be very accommodating to our guests, but we do have a few restrictions that are geared primarily around the safety of our guests, employees and our structures. We do not allow any smoking in or on any of our structures. We do however have ample outside greenspace for smoking. We do not allow any pyrotechnics, fog machines, smoke machines or dry ice in our structures. We do however allow sparklers to be used as long as they are used outside in designated locations. All music must be turned off by 10:00pm, that is a county ordinance requirement. Confetti, rice and fake flower petals are not allowed to be thrown anywhere on the facility. Real flower petals can be thrown, and artificial flowers can be used for decorating. No Kegs are allowed. No open flames are allowed.

Yes! This is your event, and we want you to be happy with how it is setup.
Do rideshares like Uber or Lyft service your venue?
Yes! Those services routinely deliver guests to our facility.
Can your venue accommodate a DJ or live band? What about power and Wi-Fi?
Most of the events we host have all used DJs without issues. We have had numerous live bands, again without issues. We have a power outlet typically every 12 feet or less around the perimeter of our main barn structure, so access to a power outlet is easy. We also have two Wi-Fi channels for our guests and DJs to use.
Is my pet allowed on the premises?
We too are pet owners, so we understand they are part of your family. As long as your pet has an assigned handler, we are ok with them being there for your pictures and the ceremony if you want to incorporate them into that; however, your pet cannot stay for the entire day or beyond what has been described above.
What County are you in? we need to know for our wedding license.
We are located in Auburn, Georgia and our county is Barrow County.
Since we will be serving alcohol, do we need to provide security?
No! Barrow County does not have a requirement to provide security, so we do not require you provide security. If you would like to hire security, the Auburn City Police or Barrow County Sheriff’s Department would be a great place to contact. They both do a fantastic job.
