I cannot say enough GREAT things The Golden Oaks Farm, it is the BEST farm/barn/vintage/rustic/elegant venue! This was the first and only venue we looked at, We fell in love with the place from the moment we first pulled up!! I really cannot say, “ The thing I love most about this venue is…” simply because I cannot limit it to just one! Our wedding day was a fairytale!Sent on 06/20/2018
My now Husband and I just got married here a couple weeks ago, from the beginning to the end Kelly and Claire were extremely prompt and patient, when answering all of our questions right away and offering advice! Every time we would attend an open house there was also something NEW! It was so fun to see the additions and improvements there were being made! Despite over a year of planning, rain was not in any of our planning, not on any of my Pinterest boards, Guess what? On our wedding day It down POURED! Thankfully, Golden Oaks Farm has plenty of beautiful space to utilize, for any kind of weather mother natures throws! Last minute changes, were completely stress free, and we were still able to enjoy our day! The day of event coordinator’s Marggie and Jenni both went above their job duties, and helped tremendously, to change our ceremony location, from North Woods to the barn, as well as set the barn back up for the dance! We had our dinner in the lean to, despite the heavy rain everything inside was completely dry!! Rain or shine, you will not be disappointed! We have received many compliments from almost all our guests on how beautiful the wedding venue was.
The entire team truly care about their property and their couples' satisfaction, A special shout out to their Llama Wranglers, Max and Patra, who were just phenomenal playing in the rain with us, doing everything they could do to make sure our day was special!
Thank you to the entire Golden Oak Farm team, and making my dream/fairytale wedding come true!

Our wedding was November 4th, 2017. Kelly and her crew welcomed us each time we visited the farm prior to our wedding. We went to the wedding fairs and open houses every first Monday of the month to see what was added/changed. Golden Oak Farm was the definition of my dream wedding!!! I could not have asked for a better place! If we had questions, they answered right away. The workers on our wedding day were unbelievably helpful and ensured the day went smooth. If your wish is to have a barn/outdoors wedding, I would recommend Golden Oak Farm in a heart beat!!!Sent on 12/06/2017

My son got married oct 28/2017, we had the rehersal in the pavilion which was perfect.on Friday, the weather did not cooperate fri & sat, but it still turned out to be beautiful. We had the ceremony, outside which was perfect and provided blankets for the guests.the reception in the lower part of the barn, it was chill. Probably should of had that in the pavilion but the rustic look was amazing what we wanted.Had the dance in the barn, we could of used a few more heaters. But it still turned out fabulous. Kelly was willing to help us with anything & max. The house was amazing, the wedding party stayed the whole weekend weekend. Which was very cozy. I would give the venue a 10.Sent on 11/03/2017

I adore Golden Oak Farm! As a wedding photographer, there is no limit to the wonderful images you can capture at this venue. Their staff is also truly devoted to their clients and are always willing to step up and help in any way they can. I am so happy to be working with them for two more weddings this year!
Golden Oak is a beautiful reception venue! If you are looking for a rustic, romantic wedding venue this is the space. They have the barn with overhead lighting and the house has great rooms for getting ready and relaxing before and after the big day! Lots of places to have pictures, you can even have a photo with a llama! I recommend Golden Oak Farm to my clients who are looking for a beautiful barn space and can't wait to work with them again!
Golden Oak Farm will impress the socks off of you!! How can you pass up this incredible venue... wide open spaces, woods, rolling hills, barns, SPACE for you and your entire family. Love it!
