Wonderful wedding experience
My wedding came out perfect. Lauren the event coordinator was very helpful throughout the whole process. She responded to her emails quickly. The food was fantastic!! What really impressed me is that Lauren added a few extra touches like tea light candles and glasses filled with champagne at each table, at no extra cost!!! It really made the room feel more romantic.Sent on 06/08/2019

We recently had our wedding at Laurel Oak and it was perfect. The best night we could have imagined. The food was amazing (especially the pasta bar) the bar was great, staff was friendly. Jessica C was pleasent and helpful she took care in the details and always made sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. She made accomodations for all my requests. If I could do it again I would do it all the same. Laurel Oak is the perfect place for a perfect wedding.Sent on 10/02/2015
