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!
