I love working with Southern Oaks Plantation! Bobby, Sue and Stacey are always "hands-on" to ensure the highest quality of personal service! A unique venue with classic southern charm!
Southern Oaks is a spectacular location for weddings & events, with a stellar staff that is second to none in the area. They ensure maximum enjoyment for the bride & groom and their family/friends by attending to everyone's needs in a friendly and efficient manner. The setting is a gorgeous location that is well suited for any style of event, from elegant formal to casual affairs.
I have conducted several weddings at Southern Oaks Plantation, and I'm always impressed with the cleanliness, the property maintenance, the friendly staff, but above all, the attention to detail. No variable is left to chance, and these pros know how to do a wedding! I've never seen better.
