    Absolutely Perfect!

    Everything about the venue was absolutely perfect! Our guests were blown away and gave us so many compliments on the venue and the staff. The grounds were immaculate and we got to set up the Reception space early since we were the only event booked for Memorial Day Weekend! Heather, the venue manager is incredible and so easy to work with. Bowing Oaks has everything you need and the Bridal and Groom suites are massive! Pictures and videos of the venue don’t do it justice, it’s truly breathtaking on-site and we couldn’t have been happier on our Wedding Day! Thank you for making our day so special and magical. We highly recommend Bowing Oaks for every occasion!

    Great All-in-One Venue!

    I cannot say enough good things about this venue! Heather, the event manager, was phenomenal to work with...quick to respond to emails and answered all of my millions of questions! I had the opportunity to meet the owner of the property as well and he was a delight to speak with. The bridal suite had great lighting for your makeup and hair stylists, the groom's room has a huge tv and pool table for the boys to kick back and relax while waiting on the ladies :) Definitely a wonderful venue if you are looking to have your ceremony and reception in the same place!

    Even though I may not be getting married here, they are TOP notch

    So my fiancé and I loved the venue from the beginning. Everything about it. We booked it instantly and had no regrets..

    Fast forward a few months, we learn that my fiancé’s deployment is pushed due to covid-19 and he may not make it home in time AND we are to be stationed in a new city within 5 days of our wedding. So much stress.

    Heather has been on top of it with every email I sent them regarding our updates. First with holding a new date for us out of the kindness of their hearts and helping reschedule if needed PLUS more if needed.

    This venue and the people who run it truly care about their people and the owns serving our country. It means so much.

    We want to get married here and are crossing our fingers and saying our prayers that we still can. But from the bottom of our hearts, we thank them and appreciate their flexibility and kindness. Not every venue would bend over backwards for you.

    I’d chose Bowing Oaks over and over.

I have had the opportunity to coordinate one of my weddings at Bowing Oaks Plantation. The staff is great to work with and were very accommodating to all of the guest, bridal party and vendors. Meeting the owners was a great privilege, finding out the back ground of the property and why it is so special. I highly recommend Bowing Oaks Plantation for all of my brides.
