    Make this your wedding venue!

    Make The Oak at Millsite Farm your wedding venue!! We are so thankful the Lord led us to The Oak at Millsite Farm. Our experience with Jewel, Tim, Beth and their team turned our daughter and new son's "special day" into a very special weekend! We had our rehearsal dinner on-site. The wedding party stayed at the guesthouse, which was very convenient! The wedding was outside under the oak tree (which has a branch that forms a lovely natural arch), and the reception was in the barn, with additional tables set up outside the barn. The barn was breathtakingly beautiful. The team transformed it into a charming, elegantly rustic hall. And the upstairs loft (perfect for the groom and groomsmen) was stunning! Jewel and her designer captured our daughter's vision and executed it perfectly. Beth made sure the food was beyond delicious! We heard (and have) high praise for the Pot Roast, Chicken with Red Pepper Sauce, Garlic Cavatappi and Spinach Artichoke Dip!! This is more than a business for this family. They genuinely care about what matters to you, and about YOU! Our guests still remark to me about how perfect everything was - food, decor, atmosphere, everything. Several have told me it was the best wedding they ever attended, for which all glory goes to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, with thanks to Jewel, Tim, Beth and their team. We were blessed to work with them, and you will be, too!!

    Absolutely incredible! Worth every penny.

    Just got married at The Colonnade on 5/22/2021. Seriously the best day of my life! Everything was absolutely perfect!!! Wedding planning is so stressful and just a lot of work so I fell in love with the idea of no set up or clean up! And they make it so beautiful!!! You won’t get the service they provide anywhere else! Beth, Jewel, & Carla were such a pleasure to work with and helped so much!! I wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding!

    Wonderful Venue

    We had our wedding at the Colonnade in April. Beth and Jewel were sooo helpful! I planned my wedding while living in alaska and they were more than accommodating. They took all the stress away of wedding planning and I had nothing to worry about on the day of. Everything was so beautiful and perfect. It was exactly what I imagined !
