    Best day ever

    We just got married on Thurs, 11/3/22 (have a Thursday wedding, seriously!) and oh my gosh, I don’t even know where to start… Okay, I do, and it’s with Jenna. Jenna is absolutely wonderful and is the best wedding coordinator EVER. She made everything so exciting and fun and was such a joy to plan with. Day of, she checked in on us just enough and had everything arranged exactly as we discussed, and it was just so absolutely beautiful. She made our vision come to life and it was pure magic.

    Speaking of day of, Katie is a total delight. She always made sure we had water and champagne and anything else we needed. The girls are the perfect amount of professional and fun, where it was so comforting to know you are in the best hands and everything is handled, but it also felt like family was with us the whole time. I had a beautiful conversation with Katie before I walked down the aisle, and I will always treasure that moment with her.

    A fairytale venue!

    We got married at twin oaks house and garden 9/24/22! The venue is absolutely gorgeous- and was perfect for our Disneyland fairytale theme! We received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the venue was. You truly feel like you were transported into your own oasis! I will admit the beginning planning process was a bit of a bumpy ride with our planners getting switched around- but we ended up with Jenna who I can’t recommend enough! If your booking twin oaks as your venue- you NEED to request her. She was an absolute dream and we are gonna miss working with her! She’s absolutely the sweetest person ever, and will go above and beyond to make your day run smoothly. Her communication is amazing and we felt so at easy knowing she was going to be with us on our special day. Again, Jenna is the best!!!! Also Katie was our bridal assistant the day of- and wow she killed it as well! Both the bridal and groom party loved her to bits! She always made sure we were taken cared of and got us food and water if we needed anything. If you truly want an unique and magical wedding venue- twin oaks is the perfect venue for you!

    Beautiful venue!

    When I told a friend I was engaged, she threw out Twin Oaks as a possible venue. I looked at pictures online and immediately made an appointment to see it in person. It's the first and only venue we looked at but we knew it was perfect for us. Michelle is the first person we worked with in terms of selecting a date and other logistics, and she was so personable and friendly.

    When we had to postpone our wedding due to Covid, everyone at Trademark Venues was so accommodating and helpful, and they were able to help us transition to our new date seamlessly. We had several different coordinators during our two-year-long planning-during-a-global-pandemic process, but they were all friendly and easy to work with. We eventually ended up with Mirae, who was kind, responsive, and extremely helpful.

    One of the main reasons we selected Trademark Venues is because I wanted to do a lot of DIY for the wedding, but I didn't want my bridal party to be stuck setting everything up. Mirae and the Trademark team completely handled it - we dropped everything off at the beginning of our dress rehearsal, discussed with Mirae what should go where, and the morning of the wedding, everything was set up exactly to our specifications.

    The day of the wedding, I didn't see much of Mirae, but I am certain she was behind the scenes working her magic because everything went off without a hitch. If anything did go wrong, I didn't hear about it, which, as the bride, I greatly appreciated!! I would also like to give a shout-out to Katie, a member of the Trademark team. She was AMAZING. After our ceremony, I mentioned to my new husband that I was going to kill someone if I didn't get one of the delicious grilled cheese/tomato soup shooters we had chosen as an appetizer. And bam - Katie was there with shooter in hand! She also followed me around carrying my train, made sure my champagne was always full, and reminded me to drink water. Thank you, Katie!!!

    We had a build-your-own taco bar for our meal, and while Mirae brought us food, I was too busy talking to guests to eat! I heard it was delicious, though.

    Several of our guests commented that ours was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended, and this was largely due to the gorgeous Twin Oaks. Highly recommend this venue and the Trademark team!
