The Estate has always been used for entertainment by the former family owners and it's been a 2nd residence for visitation and enjoyment ever since it was estabolished. The peaceful countryside provides a sheild from the turmoil of daily life; a perfect back drop to a celebration desearving the freedom from stress and the comfort in knowing your only care is to have the best time, and enjoy the love from all who have traveled to join this moment, your Wedding Day!
Facilities and Capacity
Our Facilities are unique as they give the feel of stepping back in time to a period when celebrations were taken seriously and treated with great reverence. First on the property is an English Tutor home looming up upon entrance. It is a place to throw down your suitcase and stay. The dwelling is used by the Bride's family to get dressed for the Wedding Day and to spend the weekend if desired as it sleeps up to 12 of your invited guests. Onsite are 2 other distinct residences offering additional housing for your guests. Our cozy brick Bungalow sleeps up to six and our century old log cabin sleeps up to 6 as well. The manor is often used to hold the rehersal dinner if the party number is around 25.
Our Grand Dutch Barn, which opened in March of 2019 is a barn like none other. It was planned to allow all the pleasures of creature comfort: wi-fi, speakers, and heat and air-conditioning, and the barn has an impressive 10 foot fireplace which is the perfect back drop to ceremonies as well as providing a glow at the appropriate seasons. The barn whose interior is rich with wood imported from Montana's corrals holds comfortably a little over 200 guests. The back wall is paneled in glass so you feel as if you are positioned in the pasture on this great farm. Cattle grassing in these pastures exudes peace as they slowly move across the feilds grazing.
Oakhaven offers bides choice of ceremony sites. We have 3 popular venues in which brides like to use, first at the Manor on the green lawn surrounded by fountains, flowering beds, borders and Gazebo. A second site isOakhaven's signature Oak, located in a beautifully manacured pasture. Church pew slopping down to the 100 year old Oak give the feel of being in Nature's reverent sanctuary. All season's make these ceremony sites different from as they change from Spring, Summer and Fall. The new Barn has also been quite a choosen space as well. Who could say no to the comfort of climate and the grandeur of a giant stone fireplace. The ability to let a Bride choose an other spot is also a possiblity. Anything can happen on a farm and in the country!
All packages provide spaces to dress for the wedding, choice of ceremony locations, wedding tables and chairs with linens, setup and cleanup, parking attendants, and day of host. Oakhaven has a professional wedding consultant that works only this location, for you to hire seperately. A signature Frisian drawing our unique Cinderella carriage is a grand touch to add because after all, you are a princess. What about your famliy canine? He/She is also invited as Oakhaven has a climate controlled space for their inclusion as well. The horse and carriage and dog hotel are an add on expense.

Simply put amazing. The pictures online do not do the beauty of this venue justice. Gary is wonderful to work with and especially makes you feel like you are the number one bride of all time. Our wedding is scheduled for November 2020 so excited to see what this venue has in store.Sent on 11/12/2019

Truly Like a Dream
It was more beautiful than I had envisioned in my dreams of the perfect wedding day. The staff was very kind, understanding, flexible, and accommodating. The barn is amazing, and having the manor for the weekend to spend time with my bridesmaids was so exciting, so much fun, the perfect way to spend the day/night before the wedding. I highly recommend it all!Sent on 07/27/2019
