Thank you so much for all of your help, but we decided to go in a different direction.

Best,

(Insert compliment about how impressed you were with the appearance, friendliness of the coordinator, etc), however we have decided that another venue works better for us.  Thanks so much for your time, and hope you have a great wedding season.

Cheers!

I think most venues would rather know for a fact that you’ve gone another direction, rather than keep calling/emailing you with no response. I used to do sales for a wedding venue and my job required me to call and follow up weekly. I preferred it when brides would answer the call and tell me they’d already chosen a place, rather than me waste time following up–think of it as you saving them trouble, and also you won’t have to deal with the calls anymore. For emails, I would do the same–let them know you’ve gone another direction–and if they keep sending them and you can’t unsubscribe, just use your spam filters.
