    Our dream wedding

    I am thankful my husband stumbled upon Whispering Oaks Terrace. We had looked at so many venues but kept being met with the overwhelming disappointment of being priced out. I knew we wanted a whimsical, romantic, and timeless night under the stars. I was beginning to think I'd have to change my dream wedding.

    When my husband showed me this venue online I found myself holding my breath. It was perfect. Obviously we couldn't afford it... It was everything I'd wanted. After seeing the pricing I collected my jaw off the ground and we ran to see it the next morning. Nathan, the owner gave us a tour and told us the charming story of the venue he hand built. Needless to say this was a easy YES.

    Dawn, the owner, was responsive and kind. She was always patient with my questions and helped us have a successful wedding day. They also require you to hire Melissa Ellis as a day of wedding coordinator. Missy is a beautiful human who is incredibly responsive, direct, and VERY HELPFUL. So helpful we hired her as our wedding planner or the day wouldn't have gone as smoothly without her.

    Whispering Oaks Terrace is a dream, so many hidden gems and places to take pinterest worthy photos. We had a little over 130 guest. Everyone keeps telling us how much fun they had at our wedding.

    Thank you Dawn, Nathan, and Missy for helping facilitate our dream wedding.

    Love,
    The Smiths

    Rustic Wedding

    I fell in love with Whispering Oaks Terrace as soon as I walked on the property. It is so big and beautiful filled with oak trees, succulents, lights, and antiques. It was exactly what I was looking for in a venue. Dawn and Nathan answered any questions I had and were very friendly. They also have a room that you can rent for your rehearsal dinner which was a life saver. I loved my wedding.

    Whispering Oaks Terrace's reply:

    Thank you Juanita! We are so grateful and happy that you chose whispering Oaks Terrace to start your Forever! You and your family and friends were fantastic! It was such a beautiful wedding!
    We wish you both the best!

The moment you approach this amazing venue, you'll know that this is a a perfect place to be. I've been fortunate to have been invited to Whispering Oaks as a wedding guest and as a vendor/ makeup artist for a bride who selected this gorgeous location. I can assure you that it's first-class all the way! The property is amongst a unique, natural setting with spectacular views. The gardens are lush and I've been blessed to the beauty that lights up the property at night. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
