    Memories to be

    We took a tour of Southern Oaks a few weeks back and we couldn鈥檛 have found a more perfect venue. I have always visioned being wedded under a large oak tree on an open lawn and that鈥檚 exactly what was offered! Our date is set for November 2, 2024 which comes to a surprise for some family and friends since it鈥檚 not exactly right around the corner, but the wait does not matter to us. For I am certain that this is where I want our memories to be made.
