The Best Venue
Our wedding was a dream thanks to Gathered Oaks! We cannot say enough wonderful things about the venue and staff! Tessa and Andrew are amazing to work with!Sent on 07/16/2019
Gathered Oaks is one of the most beautiful venues. They have a gorgeous outdoor ceremony area, a dreamy and spacious barn for the reception and awesome lodging available for convenient stay on site.
Although the venue does not take much decor to look perfect, they have amazing decor rental options to make everything convenient for your day
Tessa was flexible with meeting times, so supportive with our ideas and motivated to make our wedding day perfect!
If you are looking for the perfect place to celebrate your big day, Gathered Oaks is your place!

We did the Thursday-Friday package so we were able to set up and rehearse Thursday from 3-7. And then Friday for ceremony and reception 8am-1am.Sent on 06/20/2019
Tessa and her husband (forgive me I am terrible with names) are wonderful! Their place is amazing! It was truly a dream come true! We had an outside ceremony that was well shaded and had the backdrop of the beautiful lake. They provided us with an arch that we decorated. They also set up all the benches for the ceremony and took them down. They also had a beautiful, cement/stone path down to the ceremony cited, from the barn/reception area. There is also a gorgeous fireplace in the down stairs if the barn you can get married in front of if you want an indoor ceremony. Tessa was always quite fast with responses to my many emails, packed with many questions! When our date was over a year away her responses weren't as fast, which is totally understandable. But the closer the date got, the quicker the responses, even on the same night a week before the wedding! We couldnt find a time to meet for our final consultation (you get two) so she gave me her personal phone number and we chatted over the phone and went over everything.
They have A LOT of a la carte items to choose from! We chose only a few: ivory lanterns to add to our centerpieces, golf cart service for the ceremony to help haul guests, unlimited NA's for all our guests, cafe lighting, a trellis above the head table to decorate, music during our ceremony, and reserved signs.
The reception/barn is totally gorgeous. It's so hard to describe the whole venues its beauty, let alone the barn. There are 3 floors, the main floor where the tables, head table, buffet, and dance floor was for our wedding. The place seats 250+ and we only had 120. Then theres a little left area that can be seating for a large wedding, but for ours we used it for our photo booth. Then downstairs is the bar, two bathrooms, there is one main floor bathroom, a fire place, and cocktail tables. The main floor also has balconies with cocktail style tables and a staircase that leads down to the patio area. There is also a fire fit with complimentary wood and benches to sit on.
To get ready in, there is a bridal suite, which is a cute little barn right next to the main barn. The lighting for the mirrors isnt great, but doable. There is also a bathroom. The boys get ready in a newly built/redone grain bin!
They also converted more grain bins into places for people to stay in. Also you can rent the entire house which has 11 rooms. We didnt rent any of those out because we only lived 30 mins away, and most of my family camped at a nearby campground.
For the barn, we didnt have to do much decorating because it was already gorgeous on it's own! We did centerpieces, signs for gifts and cards, a donut wall, some other cute, wedding signs, and a photo booth.
All in all AMAZING! we got compliments all night! We were asked how we found this place! Everyone couldnt believe how gorgeous and perfect it was! Tessa ans her husband were there the day of too, to make sure everything went smoothly. They even had a hostess, Mary, who was also super amazing, friendly, and kind! I cant say enough about everyone and everything! So magical!

We LOVED our experience with Gathered Oaks! Tessa, Andrew, and Mary were amazing!! From start to finish, they made the entire experience simple and stress free. This venue is naturally beautiful just the way it is, but we opted to rent some extra decorations from Gathered Oaks. They were rustic and elegant and the cost was reasonable. Their a-la-carte menu has a variety of extras to choose from. The ceremony site is beautiful near the lake and we were able to use their golf cart to help some of our older guests get down to the site. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and much of that perfection was due to Gathered Oaks and it’s staff. Thank you again for a special day that we will remember forever!Sent on 06/05/2019
