Amazing venue and wonderful owners/ worker
We got married at Oakland farm this past weekend. It was the beautiful place to get married at. We had to cancel our last venue due to broken promises and Oakland farm had a last minute cancellation, it was meant to be! Adam and Michael were amazing at helping us along the way and setting things up! I couldn’t imagine having my wedding anywhere else. I can’t say enough how beautiful this venue is!
Oakland Farm is a gorgeous, HUGE space, complete with a barn for receptions that holds up to 500 people and an equally huge outdoor pavilion, perfect for outdoor ceremonies! The landscape is delightful and the views at sunset are just breathtaking! The farm also has super cute horses, cows, and chickens on site (free eggs)! <3 The farmhouse is perfect for the bridal party to get ready in and spend the night if they want! I seriously love everything this venue has to offer. Adam, the manager, is an amazing dude who really goes all out for his clients! I highly recommend Oakland Farm if you are looking for a rustic venue, that also provides unmatched comforts and amenities!
