Wonderful Experience with Oakland Farm
I love that Oakland's space provides you the opportunity to design the venue to reflect your own personal vision. Think of it as a blank page - in a good way! The venue is stunning ON ITS OWN, but can also be transformed however you want with ease. It was incredible! The venue itself is quiet, peaceful and just enough "out of the way." It is close enough to Sanford to be convenient for out of town guests. There is plenty of parking as well.
The weekend package is the way to go - such a great value and provides so much flexibility. We did not have to rush the entire weekend! The farmhouse was wonderful for getting ready. My bridesmaids and I spent the night before the wedding (after the rehearsal dinner) at the farmhouse as well. It was so much fun and beyond convenient.
Oakland has a great list of preferred vendors, but allows you to use your selected vendors without restriction. This was such a big deal to me!
Again, the team was so easy to work with and made the planning process much easier than I thought it would be. I can't recommend them or Oakland Farm enough.

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!
