April is generous, bright, and kind. I am proud to be a preferred vendor for the Oaks at Salem.
The Oaks at Salem is a fabulous wedding venue for people looking for that genuine rustic feel without venturing too far from the city. April and her team have put together a really lovely place for couples to get married with a lot of room for getting ready and prep time as well as gorgeous grounds for the ceremony and reception. As a photographer, I am drawn to the gorgeous light this venue has and the artistic possibilities it offers for the bride and groom in search of photography above and beyond the norm.
I've worked with Veni Ridout twice recently and I can honestly say that she is the most organized planner I've worked with. Every detail is worked out and she does this with a smile on her face and a pep in her step! She is talented, efficient, and super easy to work with. I highly recommend Veni and The Oaks at Salem!
