We had our wedding on September 15th 2017. It was the perfect day. Leading up to the wedding Becky (the owner) was a pleasure to work with. She was very helpful when answering questions and brainstorming ideas with me. She was very accommodating to ideas that were outside the norm. The grounds were well kept and it was wonderful that the staff did the set up and tear down for us. We got so many compliments on our venue. The venue allows you to bring in all your own vendors so that really lets you make your wedding your own. We brought up our caterer from the Rockford area. We brought everything from plates to our center pieces. (They do have a suggested vendor list if you are not a DIY person). Overall we had a perfect day and could have not done it without Oak Hill. Thanks for everything!Sent on 09/30/2017

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!

The Oak Hill Wedding Venue is absolutely amazing. From the initial walk Becky and her staff were so accommodating, informative, organized, and kind. The venue has something for everybody, from antique cars, horses/donkeys, antique store, rustic barn, an old schoolhouse, the chapel, and the beautiful tent! We were told many times throughout the day by guests how much they love this wedding venue. I can’t recommend this venue enough!!Sent on 08/24/2019
Oak Hill Weddings's reply:Thank you, Lexee! Your review means so much to me and our staff at Oak Hill. You had such a beautiful wedding - we will all be talking about it for years to come!
