White Oak Event Venue and Lodging sits on 70 acres nestled in the gorgeous rolling hills of Ruston, Louisiana. Built in 2018 by previous owners, Dustin and Alli Brister. Once family land, now a space to celebrate big life moments and bring guests together.

The venue’s vaulted ceilings, grand staircases, custom chandeliers, and exposed beams provide the perfect canvas for any event. For weddings, upstairs you will find bride and groom “get ready” suites. Step outside onto the veranda and overlook a beautiful pond and large white oak trees. Tucked to the side of the venue, sits an open air covered chapel. This makes for a charming outdoor backdrop for your ceremony.

If you want to extend your stay, drive around the pond and you will find four guest houses. Grace Place Cottage, The M.H. Cottage, The Belle Cottage, and White Oak Guest House. After attending an event, these on site houses are perfect to come back and relax. White Oak Guest House includes a pool to soak up some sun on a nice summer day.

Schedule a tour with them today! They would love to show you around.

White Oak was the perfect place to have our daughter’s wedding. It was so beautiful for her outdoor wedding, and the transition indoors for the reception was easy. The indoor area was great for dining and dancing. Both the managers and staff members were amazing; They were so helpful with the bridal pictures, the rehearsal, the ceremony, and everything in between. They also work with a lot of great vendors that they recommend to you. I truly hope we are invited to another function here. Every aspect of White Oak is simply beautiful!
Thank you so much, Allie, for all your help

Amazing service and beautiful location

We met the owner on a Thursday night, and she was able to answer every question I had along with walking my family and me around the venue. She was very understanding and reassuring when I brought my concerns to her attention. After that visit, I decided not to tour any other venue and choose to have my wedding at her location. My father, someone who wanted me to have my wedding in our small-town church, ended up changing his mind.
