The Grand Oaks Resort has been my dream location to get married since I was a little girl. My dad brought me there to visit the Carriage Museum many times in the 90's. Making it the easiest part of all the wedding decisions; since I already loved it there!Sent on 09/26/2017
When you arrive on property you feel the tranquility instantly with the beautiful scenery, the love on the staff's faces and the cleanliness throughout the entire property.
Julianne was our point person - our wedding coordinator and much MORE than that. I could not have been more pleased with the urgency behind every question/answer via phone call or email. It's much more than a job for her it's her passion. When I say I couldn't have done it without her I really mean I could not have done it without her. Hurricane Irma was in our path the week of the wedding. If you can imagine how scared I was it'll give you great relief that she did everything in her power to make sure I still had a wedding. I was terrified that I was not going to be able to have my perfect day. She called me two days before and said "I'm going to get some trees cleared, we have power -- let's do it!" The actual day she made sure to contact me the morning of the wedding, throughout the day and checked on me at the cottage on property
(Acorn Cottage was beautiful).
In our package included a horse drawn carriage ride that was absolutely amazing something I've dreamt of since I was a little girl.
The option of getting married at the Pergola was the best option for us- with the rain here in Florida being 50-50 you have the option of getting married in " The Barn" should it rain. We did our engagement pictures inside that and that was a beautiful, too!!
I strongly suggest if you are interested in an outdoor vintage/ rustic wedding to check out the Grand Oaks and ask for Julianne!! Xo

Our wedding was November 4th 2017 and we have the best time. Julianne and her team are amazing to work with and very professional. She took care of all of our needs and kept us on schedule for the day. The grounds are beautiful with plenty of space and places to pick for a ceremony and reception, or they have a beautiful ballroom as well. They have there own bar and catering all you have to bring is your cake. It was a very fun and relaxing Wedding day for us.

We got married at the Grand Oaks in October, and I couldn't imagine having our special day anywhere else. Julianne is the most amazing coordinator - seriously she knows the answer to everything and always has a solution to make your worries disappear. She was there for us throughout the entire planning process and was such a huge blessing to us. The venue itself is breathtaking and maintained very well. Just go give the place a visit, and I swear you'll never want to leave. We also stayed in one of the cottages on property - gorgeous! We love everything about this place and highly recommend it!!Sent on 11/30/2017
