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.Sent on 09/13/2020

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
