    Amazing Wedding Weekend

    Our families had an amazing experience at The Oaks. Start to finish, all aspects of the wedding weekend were excellent. We could not have asked for anything different. The staff was amazing and Tracey made sure every detail was perfection. The Oaks staff allowed us to have the wedding our kids had dreamed of. Can't thank The Oaks enough!

    Dream Wedding Weekend at the Oaks

    There are no words that can adequately capture just how incredible our wedding weekend at the Oaks was. We emphasize weekend because that was one of our favorite features of the Oaks – your wedding party gets the entire property to yourselves for the weekend, which allows your wedding to be so much more than the ceremony and the reception, it makes for a truly relaxing and warm getaway. Everything about the Oaks itself is top notch. The facilities are breathtaking, clean, and accommodating; the food is incredible; and the bar selection plentiful. But above all else, what sets the Oaks apart is the staff. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure that you and your guests feel at home and have an incredible time. We cannot tell you how many of our attendees remarked that what struck them most was the friendly demeanor of the entire staff. Tracey, the on-site wedding coordinator, stands out among this phenomenal group. She made every minute of our experience seamless and easy – all while ensuring that our dream wedding stayed on schedule. We would unreservedly recommend everything about the Oaks!

    Dear Collin and Kelly ~
    You fit so perfectly together! You respect each other, you cheer for each other, you always consider each other and you truly just love each other. All this because you have been surrounded by such an amazing support system of family and friends! They will always have your best interests at heart just like the two of you do for each other! I am so honored and so blessed to have been a part of your special weekend! Many thanks from me and the entire team at The Oaks and we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!
    Cheers ~ Tracey

    It is an absolute delight to work with the staff at the Oaks, your home away from home. Their goal is relaxed perfection in the beautiful, peaceful setting of our beloved Eastern Shore. From calling to check on information to final set up of our brides floral designs the staff is always professional and helpful. Tracey is inspired confidence, we adore her! The food is always amazing. The ballroom space and linen colors give us limitless possibilities. Thanks to all the behind the scenes personnel who support us and help us carry out our delightful task of setting up for our events. Paul and Candy we thank you for the vision of constant improvement. Needless to say we love working with and for the Oaks. Shirley and Roxanne Seasonal Flowers

    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!
