    An absolutely perfect day at The Grand Oak Villa

    We’re so thankful we stumbled upon the Grand Oak Villa to help plan and host one of the most important days of our lives! They were absolutely wonderful with everything straight across the board from communication all the way through to personal attendants the night of our wedding that were always near us with whatever we needed. Carol is awesome and very helpful with all of the planning and assistance before and the day of! (Thank you, Carol!) our guests still rave about the food here and the beautiful scenery. It’s truly an amazing place. We had a great experience and we suggest it to anyone looking to celebrate any special day!

    Our perfect wedding venue

    We loved the GOV the second we set foot inside. Carol was the absolute best, making the wedding planning process much less stressful. Our guests raved about all the food. We were able to do all our bridal party pictures in the field up near the outdoor ceremony space, and they came out beautiful. Our family portraits were in the foyer which had perfect lighting. We got a lot of comments about how good the waitstaff was. We would recommend the GOV to anyone!
