    Absolutely PERFECT!

    We had our wedding venue this past weekend at Oak Hill and it was absolutely AMAZING! Becky and her team did a fantastic job making sure everything was exactly what we envisioned and more! The venue itself it stunning and left our guests talking about how it was the most beautiful venue they have ever been too. I cant say enough good things about this venue, we wanted something country and outdoor and it checked every box. If I could get married there every year, I would! :) Thank you again to Becky and her team for making our day special and a day we will forever remember. We will forever cherish our memories at Oak Hill and Can't wait to come back for our anniversary to take some pictures!

    The Best Day Ever

    We recently had our wedding at Oak Hill, and they were able to make sure that we had the best day ever. The venue is BEAUTIFUL, Becky and the staff and super easy to communicate with, and they helped the day go perfectly! After a year of changes due to the pandemic, I couldn't imagine working with a kinder and more accommodating group. I very highly recommend Oak Hill!

    Oak Hill Weddings's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Rachel! You and Mike were so much fun and so easy to work with! Best wishes to you and please come back for anniversary photos!

    Amazing and flawless

    Working with the owner has been the best experience. We are going to meet with her in two weeks.

    Oak Hill Weddings's reply:

    Carissa! You just made my day! I always, always appreciate a kind review but I haven't even met you yet and to hear that you've enjoyed working with me before even meeting me means a lot. Looking forward to our tour in a couple weeks!
