Gorgeous setting for an intimate wedding!

My wedding at the Oatlands was absolutely beautiful! I received so many sincere compliments all night long. For a guest count of 40, the setting was absolutely perfect. I had my ceremony in the gardens, cocktail hour on the lawn next to the estate house, and my reception in the greenhouse. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for an intimate space that has character, beauty, and that escape like feeling. You really don't have to do much at all in terms of decor because that's all inherent in the property. The gardens are magical and the greenhouse has this cool, rustic, romantic, old world feeling. There's twinkle lights and windows everywhere, brick exterior, stone floor... So gorgeous. And if you have your wedding at the Oatlands, you'll be working with Pure Perfection Catering, which was delicious, and OpenBlooms for floral (you have a choice for floral, but I'd recommend this company; they partner with Oatlands and know the venue really well). Finally, this is a great value. I researched soooooo many properties and it was really difficult to find a venue that offered everything I wanted in a wedding, but wouldn't price me out with their ridiculous minimums and/or catering toward a larger crowd. Oatlands fit the bill. I would highly recommend!!

Romantic setting for our wedding

Oatlands Historic house and garden is absolutely beautiful, the garden is perfect for romantic wedding pictures. Our wedding was at the barn, we loved the setting, there are so many possibilities to decorate. The staff was very helpful and professional. It was absolutely our dream wedding. Thank you.

Moriah was amazing and the venue was beautiful

The venue absolutely beautiful and there were so many potential sites we could have used for our ceremony spot, first look location, wedding portraits and cocktail hour. We chose the boxwood terrace for the ceremony and the tiered gardens for cocktail hour and it made for amazing pictures. Our guests continue to tell us how beautiful the venue was. On top of that, the venue coordinator, Moriah Lemming, was so insanely organized, flexible and had great attention to detail. I was hesitant about not using an outside coordinator but she completely manned our wedding all on her own. She herded guests from spot to spot, lined up and helped time our wedding party walks, fluffed my dress before I walked down the aisle, was always on top of my slew of emailed questions and requests, and at several times during the night, I caught her holding hands with and walking around with our flower girl. She is truly amazing at her job and having her help with our wedding made our experience at Oatlands so memorable. I would recommend this venue and her 1000 over.
