What Everyone Is Saying About Us

I cannot say enough good things about Faranda's. We have hosted many events here as a business, and every single time Shannon and Bill go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect.

Working with Shannon completely takes the stress of planning an event away. Faranda's has proven time and time again that they are the absolute best!

I had my wedding reception here in June. I cannot say enough about how easy they were to work with, how adaptable and accommodating they were throughout the whole process, and how helpful they were during the event to make sure everything went smoothly. All the guests absolutely raved about the food (fajita buffet and pot roast with mashed potatoes)–not your typical boring average wedding food by any means. Bill is an incredible owner and Shannon was an incredible resource and planner to work with. They accommodated our multicultural requests (my husband is Brazilian) regarding food and service, as well as our individual dietary request for children and adults alike (“gluten free, low sodium, etc.). I cannot recommend Farandas enough to anyone planning a wedding (or any event, for that matter) in the DeKalb area.”

“I held an event at Farandas this evening and I can’t say enough great things about this venue. The atmosphere is very warm and although they can accommodate large crowds it still has a pleasant feel, not institutional. The food was great! Amazing pot roast entree. And the cookies are amazing!!!! I worked with Bill and Shannon and they were great. Excellent value, great food, convenient parking, it’s got it all!”

We wanted to share our amazing experience with Farandas! As an event florist, we have the venues we love frequenting! Working with and Faranda's on 6/15/2019 is now on our list! We had an opportunity to visit the venue and meet with Shannon a month before the event. we love to see the space and get an idea how they operate and what was expected of with vendors. Shannon was phenomenal! She was professional, courteous and informative! She knew all the details of the event that we needed to know! Thank you! we look forward to an opportunity to work with you again! Michael & Ryan @MOREventFloral.com
