The staff at the museum were so amazing! They were more than willing to answer any questions and help you figure out placement for tables and any other items you need. It was really convenient that we got to use the gardens and the inside of the museum, so there was no need to find a separate venue for a reception. The gardens were absolutely gorgeous and pulled my whole night time wedding together!!

This venue must be the best kept secret of Northeast Oklahoma! The staff at the museum, were extremely helpful. And Jacob at Will Rogers Birthplace was very accommodating and very insightful , from previous weddings to offer our daughter and her fiancée" a perfect sunset wedding. The view of the lake in the background set the tempo for our evening , of a very relaxed happy perfect evening . And a beautiful back drop for her wedding pictures. The privacy of the ranch makes you feel you as if you are at home and the facilities there are very clean and well managed. We had close to a hundred people, sit down dinner with dance, with dance floor, and I am certain you could entertain more guests. I spent 5 months looking , calling different venues for her wedding, THIS IS EXTREMELY REASONABLE!! You may have to put a little work into it ( I did not have a wedding planner) but we are all in agreement we would do it again in a heart beat! Thank You Tad, Jacob , and Will Rogers Staff, we have memories forever, Frieda James

I photographed a small wedding/elopement at Will Rogers. The grounds are beautiful! There are so many locations to photograph whether you are looking for trees, arches, or stone walls. If you want an outdoor wedding, this is one of my favorite locations!
