Thank you for your reviews of our wedding venue!

WOW! Where to even start. Mike and Renty are SERIOUSLY some of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. To say they exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. The minute we stepped foot on their property to view their venue and met them we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. The venue is breath taking and was so perfect for our special day. They are good, honest people, not trying to nickel and dime you on everything. They let us come out to the venue ahead of our date to do sound checks and walk through with our caterer which was amazing. They were so accommodating and always were anticipating what we would need next. I seriously can’t sing their praises enough. I can’t imagine a more perfect, beautiful wedding and it’s largely thanks to them.

When we first arrived at Spring Lake events to view the venue for our wedding, we instantly fell in love. From the beautiful backdrop of the rollinghills, the lake, and the magnificent barn we were in awe of everything Spring Lake events had to offer. We soon found out that the owners Mike and Renty were extremely friendly and able to assist us in every single way possible. From helping set up decorations to allowing us to take photos on the lake in the canoe. Our wedding day was beautiful and we could not have asked for more. Every one that works with Spring Lake events from the cater to the DJ are all extremely friendly, responsible, organized, and professional. I would highly highly highly recommend Spring Lake events to any future bride and groom!

From pulling up at the venue the atmosphere sold me! Then with mike & Renty’s help they made my dream wedding come to life! With the cabin full of decorations and being there every step of the way helped reduce the level of stress being a bride. Our wedding day could not have been any better! The gorgeous arch, and getting out in a canoe for sunset pictures topped it off. Would definitely recommend!! You will not regret it!

It is easy to fall in love with the sheer beauty of Spring Lake. From the antique church pews by the water, to the adorable boat house, and beautiful open air barn there is charm written all over it. The grounds are meticulously maintained and landscaped as well. Our photographer was in heaven, and commented that he absolutely wanted to come back because it was a photographer’s dream location. Not only is this a first class, picturesque venue, but Mike and Renty were extremely attentive to every detail to make our daughter’s wedding day a story book event. Truly a fairytale! On a scale of 1-5 Spring Lake Events is a 10!!

From day one the owners at spring lake events were so inviting and friendly. They worked with my budget and timeline. They were willing to help with anything I needed. I loved that it’s an outdoor venue with a backup for rain which is important in the south! I probably visited the venue at least 5 times before getting married and they were always so accommodating. Our pictures turned out picture perfect! Couldn’t have dreamed of a prettier place to get married!

I don’t know where to even being with how wonderful my experience was with having Spring Lake Events as the venue for my Spring Wedding! From the moment I saw how beautiful Spring Lake was, I knew I wanted to have my wedding there! But what made my experience outstanding were the owners Renty and Mike! They instantly became like family and made our wedding day nothing short of amazing! They were even there to answer all my crazy question when they were on vacation! They were there to help with anything we needed. From helping us light over 100 sparklers, to making the day run so smoothly, to absolutely stunning bouquets, and even calming a nervous bride! The day was perfect because of their help! And I didn’t even mention the picture perfect sunset and landscape. Every single guest at the wedding was in awe of the venue. If you are looking for a venue, you will not find anywhere better than Spring Lake Events!

From the moment my fiance and I stepped foot on the grounds of Spring Lake, we new THIS WAS THE PLACE! We knew we wanted an outdoor venue, but couldn’t decide between lakeside, mountainside or a rustic barn. Spring Lake has all three! Just breathtakingly beautiful… The venue is run by Renty and Mike, and, throughout our process, both were unfailingly kind to us and to our families. They offered vendor recommendations, which proved helpful, and just generally were available whenever my now-husband or I had questions. Day of, we arrived to find the venue pre-set and a Spring Lake rep ready to help with anything we or our coordinator might need. From there, everything venue-wise went smoothly and beautifully. A wonderful experience!

Erin Greer

While we plan on writing a glowing review on the various wedding websites, I wanted to reach out a little more personally to thank you for…well…everything. Throughout our wedding planning process, you were always courteous and available, and, when it came time for THE BIG DAY – your service and staff were PERFECT! Sometimes couples suffer from the shoulda, coulda, wouldas, but not us! Perfect venue run by perfectly nice, professional folks! Couldn’t have been happier.

Ever grateful,

Erin & Scott

My wedding was held at Spring Lake Events on April 12,2015. My husband and I loved everything about our special day, and have nothing but wonderful remarks from our guest. Renty and Mike are excellent, and such sweet people. We recommend this venue to everyone. The venue is amazing, and the staff is so accommodating. The lakeside package is wonderful, everyone LOVED the macaroni and cheese! We will never forget our perfect day, and so happy it was at Spring Lake Events!

Kayla and Brandon

Me and my husband got married at Spring Lake this past November. I just wanted to thank you for all of the help you gave us in making our perfect day come to life. The venue was absolutely breathtaking and all of our guests kept telling us how beautiful it was. It would not have been possible without your help and all the tips and special things you let us do to make it unique to us. We had such a wonderful experience at Spring Lake and we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate the start of our new lives together. We will definitely be recommending this venue to anyone and everyone we know!

If you are looking for a traditional wedding venue with typical wedding furniture and décor than Spring Lake Events is NOT for you.

Spring Lake Events is a venue with unique characteristics that only mother nature could provide. From beautiful sunsets, to earthy trees, to acres of manicured grass, to the rippling water of the lake, this venue will set your wedding apart from any other wedding you or your guest will ever attend. All of our guest felt as if they were on a retreat.

At Spring Lake, God has already done most of the decorating, so even if you don’t bring a single candle or vase to the venue, your wedding will still be beautiful. Not to mention, the venue management team works overtime to ensure you have the wedding you’ve dreamed of.

 A huge THANKS to you, Mike, Taylor (I believe that was her name) and everyone one else on your team that assisted Selasi and I last weekend during our wedding!  Everyone kept saying “where did you find this place?! It’s sooo BEAUTIFUL!”  By far, this was probably one of the most beautiful weddings any of my guests have ever had the pleasure of attending.  Your venue is just GORGEOUS!  Thanks for all that you did to make the ceremony and reception a memorable one.

Selasi & Sabrina Bawuah (Personal Letter)

Spring Lake is beautiful!!! My family just loved the place! From the outside ceremony in front of the water to the open barn reception I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place! I loved the antler chandelier’s and the beautiful cake table it really gives it that rustic classy look!!!! I didn’t have a single person in my family who didn’t LOVE Spring Lake! I highly recommend using Spring Lake for your wedding/reception!!


Where do I begin? You have been so wonderful to work with since the day we booked the venue. You truly go above and beyond for your guests! I got so many compliments on the flowers, especially the bouquets! They were stunning! Everyone just loved Spring Lake! We are so blessed to have been able to get married at such a beautiful place but even more blessed to work with you! Our families couldn’t stop talking about all the things you did throughout the wedding day to make everything stress free for all of us! Thank you so much for everything!!!

My daughter was married at Spring Lake in Rockmart,GA on 9-22-13. Not only was it the perfect time of year, but the venue and grounds are so beautiful there! The setting is very unique. I cannot wait to see the pictures! I was very impressed with all the staff. They were so friendly and helpful! Renty Haney, the owner, did an excellent job with the flowers too. Thank you Spring Lake for the memories! It went by too fast!

It was tears of joy and love at first sight for Spring Lake, and that was just from pictures. When I made the appointment and met with Renty at the venue I knew even more it was the place for us. She makes it so easy and helps you to feel at home. The planning is easy when Spring Lake helps with most of it. I could not have asked for prettier flowers and centerpieces. Every detail you can’t think of, Spring Lake will take care if it. Guests raved about how delicious the food was, and how beautiful everything was. The weather held off long enough for us to have pictures and our ceremony, but rain or shine this beautiful venue is the best! Renty and her wonderful staff went above and beyond to help us all in what’s one of the most hectic days of your life. They make it flow so easy, and seem like a breeze. You know you have picked a great venue when they see you on the side of the road late at night and help you put out your road signs. Renty also recommended our photographer, and that was also one of the best decisions aside from choosing Spring Lake. Spring Lake truly made every wish come true, and gave us the most beautiful wedding we could have ever asked for. Thank you Renty, Mike, and the Spring Lake Staff. I know god will continue to bless you and your hard work.

Katie and Kyle Williams-May 11, 2013

Before my fiancé and I were engaged, we knew EXACTLY where our wedding would be just by looking at photographs. After a couple of days of being engaged, we HAD to visit Spring Lake to make sure that we GOT that venue…that’s all I wanted!! Now that our dream is a reality, I could not ask for anything more. The venue is absolutely breathtaking. Renty Haney is ABSOLUTELY the BEST!! Our wedding is not until October 27, 2012, but she is in contact with me asking how things are going with planning, flowers, theme, etc. She has the kindest heart and spirit and SO wonderful to work with! Pictures of Spring Lake do not do justice to the natural beauty of the venue. Everything from the antique church pews, to the weeping willows, to the open air venue is so so so perfect. I love how the venue is centered around the natural beauty of Northwest Georgia. We are so excited to share our BIG day at Spring Lake with our amazing family, friends, and that WONDERFUL Renty Haney!

The day our families met to view the venue it was in the initial building phase, but because of the natural beauty, there was no question of where the wedding would take place. Renty was always available for questions and went above and beyond to make everything perfect for the wedding party. It is no doubt a photographer’s dream. Renty chose the perfect spot for the ceremony, placing a natural wooden arbor at the lake’s edge, underneath beautiful large flowing willow trees, with cat tails emerging from the edge of the lake and behind the arbor. A gorgeous stone fireplace emerges from an embankment and is a perfect place to gather, build a fire, and relax in the Adirondack chairs and the large over-sized swing that overlooks the lake. The natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere is what makes this place so special. I would highly recommend Spring Lake Events for your wedding or family or class reunion.

Renty Haney is one of the owners of this beautiful new venue. They are definitely one of the venues we are considering for my daughter’s wedding. It is a photographer’s dream. Renty is also very easy to reach with any questions during the selection process.

I took a chance booking this venue whenever it was being built and let me just say it was the BEST decision I ever made. The property is beautiful and has so many different places to take pictures. It also has a very romantic vintage feel about it. The owner Renty Haney is beyond helpful. I booked my April 2012 wedding in September 2011 and every single time I call Renty she gives me her full attention and always answers my questions. It is just a very beautiful place out there and Renty is so so easy to work with and so laid back. She actually makes me feel more like a friend than a “customer”. Ihave had not one single problem with this facility and I cannot WAIT to marry my best friend at Spring Lake!!

Thanks Renty Ruiz Haney! Spring Lake is seriously amazing; I keep telling everyone about it! My Maid of Honor, Lindsay Kelly, will be there again in April when her sister-in-law Meaghan Kelly gets married! I can’t wait to see Meaghan and Christopher’s wedding pictures!!!
