    We can't begin to thank The Oaks enough for all the amazing work they did to help make our day beyond perfect. We truly appreciate all the work Tracey and her team did for us in making our wedding weekend exceed all our expectations. From the planning leading up to the wedding to the breakdown afterwards, The Oaks made sure our weekend went flawlessly.
    The Oaks was the perfect venue for us, Tracey is the perfect wedding coordinator, and we had the best day ever!

    What an amazing wedding! Emily and Rob are such an amazing couple and we had so much fun planning this wedding with and for them! Everyone had one goal in mind that day and that was to ensure that Emily and Rob had the wedding they were dreaming of and it definitely happened! Seeing the joy and excitement on their faces that day, I just know they are in store for a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness and we were honored to be a part of their celebration!

    How much can I say about such a perfect wedding/event venue? I honestly have to see how much space I have since I will have to cut short my accolades! The Oaks is all one could want in a venue- lovely setting, personal, caring and professional staff, great food, self-contained so it really is yours for your wedding. I know that the folks there take great pride in all these things and truly want your wedding to be perfect. As a photographer, I have worked there often and yet never feel I've used all the lovely backgrounds that the setting offers. I truly love working there!
