    Glen Oaks was a dream!

    Glen Oaks was a dream wedding venue! We had our ceremony on the croquet lawn, cocktail hour on the beautiful veranda, and the reception inside. Such a unique and gorgeous venue - I loved having different areas and rooms for our guests to go. It truly felt like we had the entire building. The staff is also amazing! Emily - the event coordinator was absolutely fantastic to work with. We emailed back and fourth the entire process and met 3+ times and I have to say she is the most organized/professional human being I鈥檝e ever met. I don鈥檛 know how she does it! She is truly the BEST at what she does and she made our day exactly what we wanted with the perfect timeline. She handled our wedding so well even with the difficulties of Covid - we couldn鈥檛 have done it without her. I can鈥檛 thank her and Glen Oaks enough!

    Perfect venue!

    Glen Oaks worked with us over many, many months to ensure that we had exactly what we needed and wanted on our wedding day. Shannon did a wonderful job taking care of us and we could tell that she genuinely wanted to make sure that we had the most smooth, enjoyable day ever. Our guests were very impressed with everything at Glen Oaks and the food was fabulous. We loved being able to get ready and have both our ceremony and reception all in one place. The whole GO team did a great job ensuring that everything was set up and executed for our perfect day.

    Glen Oaks Country Club's reply:

    Thank you so much Ashely for the kind review! The staff and I loved getting to help you and Logan celebrate your big day, and we're so happy that we could make it so memorable for you both!

I have done makeup for many weddings here. The room for the bridal party to get ready in is great! Plenty of room for everyone. I usually see my brides take advantage of a continental breakfast or lunch that is served there while they are getting ready. Truely a much better option than a hotel suite, with a huge gorgeous window for getting ready photos and bridal portraits. Highly recommended!
