    Absolutely select this venue

    Laurel Oak was amazing - from the venue's appearance and food, to the wonderful assistance the venue offered in the form of staff. Chelsea was outstanding on all aspects leading up to our day. She knew exactly what to ask to get all of our details recorded. She was diligent, organized, and communicated everything to us in a way that limited all stress and was very transparent. Especially having a wedding in the midst of covid, and having to push it, Chelsea could not have been better with the management of it all. On the day of, Priscilla was invaluable. She always seemed to be there to step in the second I needed her. Her eye for decor and little touches really made our wedding as beautiful as it was. Do not have your day without her. Overall, I have no regrets choosing Laurel Oak for our wedding and can think of nothing negative to say about our experience.

    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.

    Laurel Oak Country Club's reply:
