    Our wedding was like if it was in Heaven

    The owner and the staff at Southern Oaks rolled out the red carpet for us from the moment we arrive to the moment we left; there was nothing more anyone could do as it was perfect in every way-it was more than a fairy tale wedding if was as if it was in Heaven as it was magical and perfect in every way as the father of the bride it exceeded every expectation and my daughter was the happiest young lady on the planet, and I was the happiest father on the planet. Every guest had an incredible experience and several commented on how excellent the staff was. The setting is like out of Disneyland, but better. The landscaping was unbelievable with perfectly manicured lawns, shrubs, thousands of lights, dozens of places to take breath-taking pictures.If you want to treat your daughter/son-in-law to the most amazing, magical, unforgettable wedding experience you need to have it at Southern Oaks, there's no better place to get married on the planet.

    Wedding 5/20/22 AMAZING

    Southern Oaks made our day absolutely perfect. The first day we got to the venue for our tour before we booked we fell in love with Southern Oaks. Lauren was our wedding coordinator and she was so prompt and helpful with every email and phone call I had throughout the year of planning. All of our guests can not stop talking about how beautiful everything was and they loved the food! Mr. Bobby and the team had some surprises for us after the ceremony that were amazing! I can not thank them enough for making our day the best day ever!!!!!!!!

    Magical Experience!

    Where to begin.... Southern Oaks is by far the best vendor experience I have ever had. They truly aspire to make this experience as easy and magical as possible. I booked Southern Oaks in January 2020. I was pretty nervous throughout the whole year as our wedding date, March 2021, was getting closer and closer due to COVID. Southern Oaks was very prompt to answer my emails and was always on call away for any questions. They did such a fantastic job guiding me through the planning process and helping ease some of my stress.

    Our wedding day was an event out of a fairytale movie! We met Mr. Bobby, the owner, and quickly connected over our Disney obsession. I never knew that most of their visions come from Disney. This is why they strive to have a top notch crew and it was incredible to see how smoothly and stress-free the ceremony and reception was. They were constantly checking in with us along with our parents. I've never seen a service quite like this. I am still blown away!!

    Our guests are still ranting and raving about the whole experience! They loved the second line, fireworks, Mardi Gras parade, and the FOOD! The food was the biggest hit! Every single item was delicious.

    Thank you so so much Mr. Bobby and the Southern Oaks team! You made our day so special and we can't thank you enough

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.
