I had my wedding at Great Oaks a few weeks ago. The top 5 things (in my opinion) about having your wedding at great oaks are: 1) you have a beautiful setting/background for your event and pictures 2) you have the whole day to yourself 3) you have choices in your vendors (at various price points) 4) you can provide your own alcohol and 5) you have Joi as a resource, who has your best interests at heart and does not want you to go broke!Sent on 07/21/2013
I just got the pictures back and they are better than I could have ever expected!! The gardens, the trees and the estate were the perfect background!
Before the wedding, Joi was an amazing help to me. She recommended great vendors, and suggested some ways to cut costs to make my dream event more affordable. She is your biggest advocate, too. If there is ever an issue with a vendor, she steps in and makes sure everything is made right.
I had my ceremony at Perimeter Church and reception at Great Oaks, but I wanted all of my pictures at Great Oaks before the ceremony. Joi was so accommodating and gave us so much time before the ceremony for pictures! She only does one wedding per day, so you are not rushed in and out the door. I looked at other places, and none of them were as flexible!
At Joi's suggestion, we hired an awesome day-of wedding coordinator. I really don't know how we would have pulled off all of the details without her help! I highly recommend a wedding at Great Oaks!!

Our daughter had both her ceremony and reception at the Gardens. The grounds and reception hall are so beautiful! It was such a lovely wedding. We surely appreciated the support from Joi, Tamzen, and Susan on this special day!Sent on 04/15/2019
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.
