The smile on our daughter's face throughout her wedding reception at the Gardens at Great Oaks said it all. The location, grounds, assistance, and behind-the-scenes care Joi and Tamzen provided us throughout the wedding planning process and day of were exceptional! Their attention to detail allowed us to relax and enjoy our daughter's wedding and our guests.Sent on 10/20/2019

We were provided with a solid budget for our son's rehearsal dinner. Joi did a great job of overseeing the event and Tamzen was great at watching the timing to make sure everything moved forward during the evening. Guests raved about Chef Adam - the chef that Joi recommended - along with the venue and the service that evening. The event came off without a hitch!Sent on 10/29/2019

Beautiful Venue + Wonderful Team = Best Wedding Ever!
We had our wedding at The Gardens at Great Oaks on July 20, 2019. It was amazing! Everything we wanted and more! This was the third venue that we toured and it was on a blustery, cold day in January when we did, but even then, you can still see the magic and charm of the venue. I knew from the second I met Joi and Susan that I wanted to have my wedding here. They are fantastic! Joi truly listens to exactly what her brides want and makes it happen. They truly care about your wedding as much as you do! (I distinctly remember saying this exact sentence to my parents after our tour.) The vendors that Joi recommends give you amazing service! She only recommends the best! It was so helpful to have our monthly planning meetings with Joi and Susan so we could go over everything and ensure a smooth wedding day. I wasn’t nervous at all on our wedding day because I knew that Joi and Susan had everything handled and we had a backup plan for anything imaginable. We had countless guests come up to us during, and after our reception to tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Our wedding was perfect!Sent on 10/19/2019
The Gardens at Great Oaks is a beautiful property with so many photo locations - which you can tell just by looking so we needn't tell you that. What adds to its greatness is that it's managed by a wonderful woman and team who knows the wedding industry better than anyone knows the back of their hand. Your big day can be trusted to go off without a hitch at this venue.
Beautiful venue, great staff. We love playing The Gardens at Great Oaks!
If you have not seen the Gardens at Great Oaks I encourage you to take a look ! They do not take the word garden lightly ! 4 acres of lush gardens with numerous spots for ceremonys let alone great photo opportunities. The ballroom doors open to it all.
