An absolute dream!
First, the venue is beautiful. The pavilion, where I had my ceremony, has lovely views and can be set up anyway you may envision. We held our reception inside the barn and loved how much space we had for both seating and a dance floor. Additionally, the farmhouse is included the day of, and it was so much fun to use it as a space to get ready.Sent on 11/11/2020
Another perk of the venue is they do not have a required vendor list. For us, this was a big deal because it allowed us to more completely customize our wedding day. That being said, the venue does have a preferred list and has great working relationships with nearby vendors and can always make a recommendation if needed.
And while all this is great, the best part about Oakland is Kaitlyn, the venue manager. She was absolutely incredible to work with!! She is friendly and helpful and great at her job. She always went above and beyond when we needed anything or had any questions. She jumped to help when our photographer cancelled on us last minute and she helped with so much the day of.
In sum, I can NOT recommend Oakland enough and I'm confident your wedding day will be wonderful here!

Absolutely the best!
Oakland farm is hands down the best venue for a country/rustic wedding. They were so helpful in allowing us to reschedule after covid hit. We were originally suppose to get married April 4, 2020. But they graciously allowed us to reschedule not once, but twice to allow us to have the wedding we wanted! They also allowed us to use the venue June 13, 2020 for an intimate family ceremony and then August 29,2020 to have the wedding we originally planned. Kaitlyn, the coordinator at Oakland Farm, was prompt with responses and if she didn't know the answer, she found it.Sent on 09/24/2020
I would without a doubt recommend Oakland Farm to any couple getting married!

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!
