Having my wedding here was the best experience I could have imagined! Ashley and the whole Southern Oaks Team genuinely cared so much and went above and beyond to make sure every detail was perfect!Sent on 04/17/2017
The brand new bridal suites were all the rave with my bridesmaids/groomsmen and the outside patio was perfect for the ceremony which later turned into our dance floor!
The whole event was beautiful, fun and the southern Oaks venue and food was awesome!
Guests are still contacting me about how beautiful and fun the wedding was. I couldn't be happier with our experience!

Fabulous 40th Birthday Celebration
I was tasked with planning a very short notice 40th Birthday party for a close friend and worked with the new owner, Rebecca Madan to plan the room set up, menu, etc. All of the staff were extremely helpful, the food was delicious, and Rebecca was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this venue and we will definitely be using it again. They even worked closely with our dessert vendors Cake & Co. and Simply Jess Custom Cookies to ensure delivery and set up.Sent on 01/18/2019
