Perfect Day

We are so happy and pleased with our daughter and her fiance chosing Seven Oaks for their wedding and reception. The different package prices and options are extremely reasonable. Emma and Larissa were wonderful to work with. Every detail that needed taken care of from the very beginning of the planning stage right up to the big day was taken care of. Emma was always a phone call or email away with any questions that needed answered. The wedding day was beautiful and perfect. There was a glitch that occurred and we are so thankful for Larissa to be able to step up and help the ceremony to continue on. A big thank you Emma and Larissa and the rest of the staff at Seven Oaks...you are all awesome!

Ah-Mazing Experience!!!!

I just had my wedding less than two weeks ago and it was amazing! The two ladies there went above and beyond anything that I needed or wanted them to do. The venue itself is beautiful and will fit any style of wedding and not to mention affordable. I cannot thank these two ladies enough for making my dream wedding come true. They are willing to work with you and your budget and make sure that you have the most beautiful wedding you can imagine. My big day went smoothly and it is all thanks to them. I could not ask for a better team on the most important day of my life, I will be forever grateful.

The ski lodge was a beautiful venue especially for photos. It can fit up to 400 people now. We had the ceremony in the new addition and the fireplace was a beautiful backdrop for pictures. They let you bring in your own non-alcoholic drinks and caterer. They have a fire pit, horshoes, volleyball, paintball and you can set up your own lawn games outside. The event planner was great and easy to work with.
