    The McGuire’s a truly a one-of-a-kind find! I am from Blue Ridge, GA (which is only about 40 minutes away from the venue) but I would have driven hours just to have my wedding here. Linda, Natalie, and Tommy worked with me every step of the way–which, as any bride knows, working with a soon-to-be bride is not the easiest task! I am still amazed–as I look back one year after my wedding–at how smooth, stress-free, and beautiful that my wedding was!

    As gorgeous as pictures of this venue are, they do not nearly grasp the beauty that McGuire’s Millrace Farm contains. The food, the location, the employees, and the incredible view are only a few perks McGuire’s Millrace Farm has to offer.

    Not only did the McGuire’s keep in touch just for my wedding, when they heard that my father was in an accident nearly a year after my wedding, they contacted me to check-in and let me know that they were thinking of my family. That, to me, speaks wonders; the McGuire’s are truly an amazing family through and through. I would recommend this venue a thousand times over! (If I could give you more than five stars, I would).
