About

Live Oak Plantation is a wedding venue situated in Pensacola, Florida. The grounds cover 22 acres and contain numerous oak and pecan trees. Scenic views envelop the site, including Lake Blue Heron. It is a working farm and private home for the Meeks family, led by Donna and Joe. Their property welcomes ceremonies and receptions.

Facilities and Capacity

The couple and their wedding party can complete their preparations for the day in a get-ready room. Once they are ready, they can then proceed to the ceremony. Many couples choose to say their vows outside under some of the old trees. They can then retire to the lakeside terrace for the reception. Indoor celebrations can avail of the reception hall in the Cotton House. This 3,800 square foot space can fit a maximum of 180 guests. It features tall ceilings, ensuring a sense of spaciousness no matter the size of the party. Should inclement weather disrupt a planned outdoor ceremony, it can be moved to this hall, alongside cocktail receptions. Ample parking space is an added convenience for guests.

Services Offered

Live Oak can furnish couples with a list of their preferred vendors to work with, but they are just as happy to work with other businesses. Donna and Joe can assist couples in creating a dramatic entrance, whether it’s by private helicopter or a horse-drawn carriage. They can also ensure that a day-of wedding coordinator is on hand for additional support. An on-site event rental company guarantees that a couple can customize the venue to their liking. Decorative options, including lanterns and crystal vases, are available alongside essentials like tables and chairs. Before the day itself, however, this estate welcomes other wedding-related celebrations, including engagement parties, wedding showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Location

From its location in Beulah, this site stays close to urban centers without losing its rural feel. There are various hotels just a few minutes away from the property, perfect for guests visiting from out of town. Downtown Pensacola, and its various amenities, is just 20 minutes away.

Perfect doesn't do it justice!

One of the most important aspects of a wedding is where to have the ceremony. When my wife and I began our search it started and ended pretty quickly. We came across Live Oak and made our appointment to tour the property. As soon as we drove through the front gate we knew we wanted our wedding to be there. Then we met Donna. Donna is what made Live Oak more than a wedding and reception venue. She made the process so much easier with her expertise. From recommended vendors to timelines, she took so much of the guess work out. On the day of the wedding we were blessed with great weather which allowed for an amazing ceremony outside followed by a beautiful reception inside, one of the benefits of having our wedding at Live Oak. Anyone looking for a quality venue ran by great people that will leave you with lasting memories, Live Oak is the place for you.
