    A Godsend!!!

    Angela is an angel on earth! Thank god for GOV’s gorgeous ceremony and reception space outdoors. It allowed this COVID bride to have the full reception of her dreams after our original venue cancelled on us.

    The food was delicious, including the Spumante toast! Guests actually finished their glass instead of just using it for an obligatory sip.

    Wonderful venue

    My husband and I had our reception here at the end of April. We cannot have been happier with the service we received. The ladies were such a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end! I just want to thank you for making our wedding day better than I could have ever imagined! We had such a wonderful time and a beautiful day and the staff is just absolutely outstanding. You all went out of your way to accommodate us and we felt loved and cared by you all. I cannot thank you enough! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    The Grand Oak Villa's reply:

    Thank you so much, Christine, for taking the time to right us such a lovely review! We truly loved helping you organize your special day!
