Penny November 21, 2014

I just snail mailed you a thank you. Everything was delightful, nothing but compliments! When you said you would have everything under control, you certainly delivered. We are all most appreciative for your expertise in making this a fantastic, memorable event for our family & friends.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Bob Cooper was amazing! I held a 160 person wedding reception here, and it was gorgeous. Bob was extremely helpful from start to finish. I am the first one in my family to have a large wedding, so I needed quite a bit of hand holding. Bob has 20+ years of experience, and it shows. He knows what works, and what doesn’t, so if you listen to him, your wedding will be beautiful. The food was really good, and they even made a special plate for me (I have celiac) so I wouldn’t get sick. I STRONGLY recommend this to any couple that is looking for a beautiful place to hold their reception.

Dear Bob,

I simply cannot believe that almost two weeks have passed since you hosted Greg and Maggie’s wedding reception,m and I am just now thanking you. From my vantage point as mother-of-the-groom everything was beautiful and just as you promised. Thank you!

The room itself was elegant yet inviting. The lighting, the candles, the table decor, everything looked beautiful. The only think more lovely was the bride. The buffet was a feast for the eyes and the food was delicious. There was certainly something for everyone. My new daughter-in-law, Maggie, made many excellent choices in planning her wedding and reception. Choosing you and The Olde Towne Athletic Club to host her reception was certainly one of the most important decisions she made, and I have to say, it was an A+ decision. My son is one very lucky young man!

On several occasions, I watched you and Maggie work through the details of the reception,k and I was very pleased with the way you helped and advised her. Your attention to detail and your cooperative spirit were so reassuring to us. I truly appreciated your time, your knowledge, and professional experience. If anyone should ask me for a recommendation for an event planner and venue, you and the Olde Towne Athletic Club will be first on my list. I appreciated having the opportunity to have met you and to have thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful evening you provided for our family.

Maggie October 21, 2014

Dear Bob,

I honestly don’t know how to thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding perfect! The smallest details were attended to, and the grand vision was spectacular. Every decision you steered me toward ended up being right down to ditching my veil at the end of the night. All my friends and family had a wonderful time. The food was great (thanks again for the gluten-free plate!) and the evening flowed beautifully.

Thanks again from the bottom of my heart!

Loved this venue! The food and the facility were absolutely amazing. Everything exceeded our expectations and we could not have been happier. I will be recommending Olde Towne to all of my friends. Thank you for a lifetime of memories.!

Bob was WONDERFUL! My husband and I were on a tight budget and we were looking for smaller venues that included a lot. We found that at Olde Towne! Bob, the wedding coordinator was wonderful, calm, cool and collected. He made sure everything was perfect, and the staff was so sweet and personable. The cake, food, tables, linens and drinks were all included on site, making everything very easy for a busy bride in a doctorate program to plan. I highly recommend this venue to everyone! Thanks for everything Bob!!

Thank you Bob! Everything went well, and everyone had an awesome time. The staff was very friendly and great at what they did. We really enjoyed working with you, and have already highly recommended you and OTAC to others!

This venue was a wonderful place for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Bob Cooper was a delight to work with, and very accommodating. The ballroom is absolutely gorgeous and the Pub area is a great place for the before dinner cocktail hour. The food was outstanding and our friends couldn’t say enough about how much they enjoyed everything. A big plus is the fact that Chef Scott also provides the wedding cake which was a highlight of the evening. The in-house florist, Chris Papadapolous did an amazing job with all the flowers for both the ceremony and reception. Olde Towne is a definite asset to our community! You can get luxury hotel service in a suburban setting (and no parking fees)!

Thank you for making our 60th wedding anniversary perfect in every way. All your help was so appreciated. The nice touches you added to our party were awesome. We all enjoyed the Olde Towne Club.

Olde Towne was an absolutely amazing venue for our wedding! The entire team was extremely helpful and willing to do everything we asked to make sure the day was perfect. All of our guests gave numerous compliments on the food, cake, service, and general beauty of the venue. I would strongly recommend Olde Towne for any event.

Sherri June 10, 2014

Thank you for putting on a wonderful wedding reception for Jessica and Brian. Everything was perfect. All of the guests were very impressed with the food, service, music, and decor. Jess and Brian enjoyed every minute. You were a pleasure to work with.

Nicole May 28, 2014

Thank you Bob! Everything was PERFECT! I honestly could not have asked for anything better. The food was awesome, the cake was exactly what I wanted, the bridal suite downstairs was perfect. I honestly can’t say enough great things about it. You were awesome. Really, note doesn’t do my experience justice! Thank you again, Nicole.

Samantha May 12, 2014

I just wanted to thank you for everything on Friday. The party was a hit and everything was great. I got lost of compliments on your venue as well as the food. Thanks again for everything, it was a perfect night.

Karla May 1, 2014

I wanted to write and let you know that I had such a wonderful experience at Olde Towne for my daughter’s wedding last weekend. From the moment we set up the meeting with Jenni she was so very professional and her attention to detail was the reason we picked the venue. It was such a fantastic weekend and Jenni was so much apart of what made it so special. She kept up with what we needed to do and when. She ran the event the day of and took care of everyone down to aspirin for a nervous bride! The food was fabulous and the cake exceptional. The service provided was so professional and made all the guests feel so special. I cannot say I could have had a better experience. I am recommending this place and Jenni to everyone I know. If and when I have a chance for another event I will be calling Jenni. I just wanted you to know what an outstanding employee she is and how much we leaned on her for all that we needed throughout the planning and the day of the wedding. So glad to know about your establishment. Sincerely, Karla.

We were so pleased that we chose this venue for my daughter’s wedding. We were both (all) very happy with how everything turned out – the food, service, staff, etc. were great. What was so important to me was that Bob Cooper took care of everything and I didn’t have to worry at all. We really enjoyed working with Bob, from beginning to end. (Wedding: 03/22/14)

Phil April 1, 2014

OTAC and its staff led by Bob Cooper were spectacular. There is no question we would hold our wedding and reception there again. The rating system is NOT sufficient to accurately describe the value of our wedding and reception at OTAC. Bob was flexible and superb to work with. Professionalism is a hallmark for this venue.

The venue showed well and all of our guests remarked how impressed they were with the venue; even vendors that see a lot of weddings commented positively on working with Bob and the venue. We constantly heard “best wedding”, “best wedding food”, “really a nice place that decorates well”, etc. All of those comments are accurate.

The food and service are second to none. We were overwhelmed at the tasting for food selection choices and taste. The passed hors d’oeuvres and reception buffet food was tremendous with quantities to our guests more than sufficient. The bar and bar service was all that we could have hoped for – we had some robust drinkers in our crowd and the bar stayed stocked, yet the staff managed the drinking professionally. Details such as the wedding and grooms cake were exceptional. One of the nicest touches is that the Chef will provide a replica, top cake layer for the bride and groom 51 weeks after the wedding date so the couple does not have to eat stale, frozen wedding cake on their first anniversary.

The ancillary facilities such as the large area for our daughter and her bridesmaids to get dressed in were nice. A very nice suite is adjacent to the ballroom for the Bride and daddy to spend a last moment before the event and for the new couple to have a moment to gather themselves between the wedding and reception. All of the nice touches are there to make a successful wedding.

We thought the cost was reasonable going into the wedding, but after the event we believe the value of what was delivered far exceeded our expectations. We have no reservations recommending OTAC to others.

Leah March 2, 2014

Thank you for a great evening. Your staff was amazing and everyone had a great time. We had lost of comments on how great the food was. Chef Scott and his staff did an amazing job! Bob, thank you so much for making our big day memorable. Everything was even better than we expected! Thank you again.

Craig & Carol Hollenbeck February 18, 2014

The Hollenbecks just wanted you to know that as Caitlin and Aaron have almost made it to their first anniversary we have been looking back at the wedding day and you are one of the top highlights! You were a dream to work with and we felt like you honestly cared. We have actually missed our interaction with you!

We hope this email finds you doing well! Thanks again for being such a blessing to us!

P.S. Pam Short’s daughter is getting married and having her reception there on June 7th. She took our advice and used you and DJ Tod!

Natalie & Zduy Chu December 12, 2013

We were more than pleased with everything Olde Towne has to offer. Many of our guests commented to us on how delicious the food was and how kind your staff was throughout the night of our wedding. It means a lot to us that your staff treated our guests with kindness and respect. Everything was better than we imagined it could be the day we got married. We barely had to think about a thing!

Each aspect of the club and the process of preparing for our reception there was excellent. Chef Scott and his staff did an amazing job with the food and the presentation of it. The “icing on the cake” (pun intended) was the work Chef Scott did on both of our cakes. He is a gem! Both cakes looked and tasted utterly delicious. I cannot thank him enough for making the groom’s cake perfect.

We really felt and continue to feel that we got a lot for our money. Your prices are more than reasonable and the day was completely tailored to us.

Our interaction with you, Bob, was always so great. It was because of you that we decided on the club. Other places that we checked out seemed to only want our money, but you seemed to want to share in our celebration. We felt that you really cared about how our day went and that we were happy with the final result (and we were!). You always seemed so happy and excited for us and when we would stress over little details, your expertise helped us figure it out. You are a very kind and pleasant man.

Thank you for making our big day memorable, relaxed, everything we wanted!

Sheri November 20, 2013

Thank you. Everything went perfectly. We were extremely happy with every aspect of Olde Towne…including the perfect weather which I’m not really sure how you pulled off but greatly appreciated! We have had several people rave about the food and I have since recommended Olde Towne to several people at Kennestone.

We also really appreciate how quickly the table issue (6/9) was taken care of. That will forever be a joke in our household.

Thanks for helping make our day!

We cannot say enough about Bob and his staff for our daughter’s wedding. Everything from the beginning to end went off like clockwork. The food was fantastic, the wedding cake was fabulous and made just as they wanted. The vendor list Bob gave us turned out to be the best…photographer, florist, and DJ…fantastic! This is our third daughter, all now married, and this was the easiest and smoothest wedding of all.

Olde Towne did an amazing job on my wedding day! Bob was so responsive all through the process, and I was very impressed with his patience, especially considering our head count changed almost up to the minute. The room is very spacious and the dance floor is huge. You don’t realize how important that is until you go to a wedding with a small dance floor and can’t even dance because it’s so crowded.

The food was fabulous! Everything was delicious and fresh, and we got so many compliments on it. The cake was unbelievable (Canoli Cream is the best!). I normally don’t like wedding cake, but ours was amazing. We had guests who have experienced the best of the best when it comes to food, and many said it was the best cake they had ever had. We ordered 2 small cakes as a thank you for some folks in our family who helped with the wedding, and I am ordering a bunch of cupcakes (same flavor) for my sister’s baby shower this weekend! This cake will be a regular addition to our special events menu.

One thing we didn’t want to do, and are so glad that Bob encouraged, was the whole alone time in the room before we were introduced as husband and wife. We were both pretty overwhelmed and ready to have a moment alone before we had to face everyone. DO NOT PASS THIS UP!

Bob worked really well with my DJ and florists to set up and make sure everything ran smoothly. He is incredible! Olde Towne was everything we wanted and more in a wedding venue. Thank you for your hard work!

Diana Coogan October 31, 2013
Dave and I want to thank you for all that you did for our daughter’s wedding this past Saturday. Everything was even better than we had hoped for! Olde Towne looked fantastic. Starting with the Pub hour with the food and drinks, the atmosphere was fun. The front room with the place cards and flowers was beautiful! Chris did an absolute amazing job with the flowers! They were gorgeous! And the ballroom…it was absolutely perfect!!

The buffet table’s presentation of the food was beautiful. The food was outstanding. Many guests commented on both the presentation and the taste! Scott did a fantastic job with the cake! It was just perfect!

The guests felt very cared for. The children’s meals were delivered promptly and appreciated. Your staff was very gracious and polite.

Bob, your help with the planning and the actual night was most beneficial of all. From the minute we walked in, it was apparent that you were in charge, but that it was really the bride’s night and she was your number one concern. Knowing that you were in control of the evening allowed Dave and I and Cori and Scotty to relax from the first minute and truly ENJOY the entire night. Not once did I feel like I had any responsibility. And I have to admit, I loved that! I really had a blast! As did Cori and Scotty and all of our guests! You do your job so well. I will recommend this hall to everyone who asks. It was outstanding.

Thank you very much.

Olde Towne provided me with the perfect wedding. EVERYONE continues to let me know how amazing the food was and how professional the service was. Bob was better than any wedding planner I could have hired. I would definitely recommend Olde Towne if you want a beautiful, fun, organized, and delicious wedding that gives you more than what you expect to pay for a wedding like this.

Ilene Levin October 15, 2013
Thank you for a great evening. Your staff was amazing and everyone had a great time. We had several comments on how great the food was, how the layout of the space was great and that your staff was very accommodating. Some of our friends tipped the bartenders directly, I hope this was appropriate. And the security officer did a great job with traffic flow. Thank you for making this easy for me to get through. And most importantly, Aaron had the best time of his life!
Jonathan & Amy Warner June 25, 2013
We wanted to take an opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to you for the outstanding way you and y our staff performed during the time leading up to and during Max and Alex’s B’Nai Mitzvah celebration. From our initial meetings, to the tasting, to the final week when we were finalizing the details, and on event day, you and your staff demonstrated both professionalism and a commitment to quality, which was noticed and communicated back to us by many of our guests.

Scott Murtha delivered in a big way by carefully explaining to us during the tasting what he planned to do with each dish, made us feel comfortable by wanting to please, and doing it in a very unassuming way; and everything served on event night was exactly what we expected and was just as delicious as it was during the tasting. It was nice to see Scott in the ballroom on event night ensuring everything was going well, which also gave Jonathan a chance to express his appreciation in real time. Our guests could not stop talking about the quality of their meal – and some of those positive comments came from some very persnickety folks we know.

Patricia Peters was always monitoring everything, and she did a great job ensuring our needs were met after you left for the night. Even though we stayed a bit later to pack up our things, along with visiting with some of our guests who also stayed later to visit, we never felt rushed, and Patricia gave us assistance with whatever we needed. Plus, we saw a bit of her fun personality come through as well.

We also need to express our appreciation to your supporting cast – those folks whose names we don’t know, but were always there to serve our food, clear our tables, scoop our ice cream, slice our pie, and serve our drinks – they all did it with a smile and what appeared to be a genuine desire to provide service. What really made the event fun for the kids was opening up the pool for the last hour – that was a big hit! Bob, we also appreciated your being receptive to a few special requests we made during the evening, which you handled quickly and with precision. We had a couple of friends in attendance who asked us for the contact info for our vendors, thus we anticipate we may be seeing you again in the future :-)

Thank you again for making the process easy, straightforward, and hassle-free, which allowed Amy and I to relax and really enjoy the experience of watching our son have a wonderful time with his friends, and allowing us the chance to enjoy the night with our family and friends without having to worry about event details – you, Patricia, and Scott had it all covered.

    • Olde Towne Athletic Club made my daughter’s wedding reception a truly memorable event. From our first meeting with Mr. Bob Cooper to the clean-up post reception every aspect of the event was handled with exceptional professionalism. Their quote for our 200+ guests was competitive while offering value for the menu created for the sit-down buffet. Our guests raved about the food and its presentation. All of our requests for the bride’s cake which was exquisite to the groom’s “cat” cake were beautifully presented. All of this would not have been possible without the planning and timing of the event provided by Mr. Bob Cooper. All parts of the reception were carried out on a timely basis and ran smoothly with no “rough spots” at any point during the reception. He is the consummate perfectionist and will make your event very special from beginning to end.

Lindsay & Jim March 2, 2013
We cannot express how happy we are that we chose Olde Towne Athletic Club as the venue for our wedding (ceremony and reception). It was actually the last venue we visited, but we knew immediately that it was the one for us (so much so that we actually moved our original date by a week due to the venue’s availability). It is a warm and inviting space, with lots of character and plenty of areas for guests to move around and mingle without feeling confined to one area.

From the very beginning of the planning process, Bob Cooper was a fantastic resource. He was always very accommodating, responsive, patient in answering all of our questions/concerns, and he provided great suggestions for various elements and vendors we had to consider along the way. On the day of the wedding, he and his staff continued to reassure us of something that we had been told along the way…that every detail would be put in place as we had planned, and that we didn’t need to worry about anything other than enjoying our special day with friends and family.

The food was EXCELLENT (we had many guests telling us how wonderful it was), and the cake was delicious! Cocktail hour in the Pub with a photo slideshow was also very cool, and the guests loved it!

All in all, we know we made the best decision in having our wedding at Olde Towne, and we wouldn’t change a thing about it. We wholeheartedly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a wedding or event venue…you will be taken care of with great service from beginning to end, and you will not be disappointed!!

Thank you again, Bob, Patty, Chef Scott, and the whole OTAC crew for an amazing wedding!

Ann Marie January 9, 2013
Our daughter’s wedding reception was held at Olde Towne and from our first meeting with Bob, I knew he had our event under control and was very confident in helping make this special occasion in our lives a night to remember. From start to finish, he was very professional, helpful, flexible, and always available and responsive. Patty, his assistant, is also top notch! The food was absolutely amazing! Everyone I’ve talked to about the wedding mentions how good the food was. As the MOB, I felt like they had it all under control and I could just enjoy the night. That was important to us from the beginning…to be able to enjoy this night and not worry about logistics and timing of the night. They worked out a schedule for the evening with us ahead of time and Patty made sure it all happened!! Thanks Bob and Patty!!! Ya’ll are fabulous!
Crystal December 12, 2012
PERFECTION! My husband and I visited MANY venues prior to discovering Olde Towne and I am so thankful we kept looking until we found it! The location is stunning. The value is the best out there. And the staff took the stress out of the planning process. So many venues that we visited had a young (VERY YOUNG) wedding planner who was enthusiastic but…well…clueless. Bob, our wedding planner from Olde Towne, has the heart of a father and the expertise of a veteran! He gave us such genius suggestions, helped us fit our budget, and was just as invested in the success of our event as we were! The flowers were perfect. The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD (go for the Tiramisu wedding cake!). The staff was so kind and so helpful. You may not believe it…but our wedding went off with ZERO mishaps. We were multicultural, budget conscious, and sometimes complicated, but every single detail went perfectly. How many people can say that? We owe the memory of a perfect day to Bob Cooper (and his precious assistant Patty) at Olde Towne.
Donna October 27th, 2012
Bob was amazing from start to finish. It was great not having to worry about even one detail. He took care of everything so that we could enjoy our special day. The entire staff was professional in every sense.
Connie October 10th, 2012
Every aspect of the wedding at Olde Towne was exceptional from services to food. My compliments to the chef and catering staff, everything was delicious and presented beautifully. As an added touch, the bride’s dressing area was provided with an early morning snack, which was much appreciated. I can’t say enough about Bob Cooper and everything he did to help make the wedding a truly wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this venue for any type of special occasion. It was so perfect I didn’t want it to end!
Violeta August 13th, 2012
Bob, thank you so much for all your efforts to make this day so special for us! We appreciate everything you did! We had wonderful time! Everything was great! All the guests kept talking about was the lovely ceremony and reception. We have friends that are getting married next year that were our guests and they might be interested to have it at your place. Thanks again for putting this all together! Your staff was very professional, the food was great, the party lasted all night long, and nothing could have made it more special…Warmest Regards!
Courtney June 2nd, 2012
Olde Towne Club was absolutely amazing! Bob had me hooked from the moment we walked in the door! He was extremely professional throughout the planning process and was always quick to respond with any questions or concerns I had. The venue was flexible with my other vendors (florist, photographer, and DJ) and the day of the wedding Bob communicated effectively with them in order to make the night run smoothly. We were complimented repeatedly about how amazing everything was, from the food, to the bar service to the ballroom decorations. They went above and beyond my expectations! Everything was perfect! I would recommend the Olde Towne Club to anyone looking for a wedding venue!
Ena May 27th, 2012
It was a pleasure working with you and coordinating Krista’s reception.  We felt reassured by your expertise & calm demeanor that it would be a success, and it was.  Olde Towne met all our expectations!  I thank you, Chef Scott, Patti and the Olde Towne Staff for executing a seamlessly beautiful and memorable event.  We share the sentiments of our guests who complimented the elegant Ballroom, scrumptious meal and courteous staff.
Elizabeth May 15th, 2012
My husband and I were married at Olde Towne in the beginning of May. We had an outdoor reception with 165 people and reception inside. It was an absolutely beautiful venue and we are 100 % happy with everything we experienced at Olde Towne… wouldn’t change a thing! Bob Cooper is a true professional and responded to e-mails immediately. The food was wonderful and we received great feedback from our guests. The pub room is a great place to have cocktail hour..and we really enjoyed the beautiful bar area, french doors, and windows the ballroom had to feature. This place is elegant without being stuffy. It was also great for our guests to not have to travel in between the ceremony and the reception. The beautiful outside gazebo was perfect for our wedding. I highly recommend Old Towne Club to any couple who is looking to enjoy their wedding in a beautiful atmosphere. Pricing was clearly explained, no surprises. Bob was very nice to work with and our event was flawless. The chef was spot on and we loved the variety of food choices to choose from. I loved that we did not have to go through a separate catering company, and all the tables, linens, chairs, silverware were all provided. Can’t say enough about my experience with Olde Towne… still getting rave reviews from our guests! Thanks to Bob, Patti, & the Olde Towne team!
Nikki January 10th, 2012
This place is perfect if you want something simple but still looks like a country club. The staff was super friendly and Bob was great to work with. Took all the stress away :) I couldn’t have asked for a better place for my day! Thanks for everything Olde Towne Club!
Teri October 13th, 2011
We immediately fell in love with Olde Towne Club when searching for venues for our reception. Bob and his team were wonderful to work with. They were about mid-range in price. We did our wedding on a Sunday to save some money and glad we did.
