Truly Like a Dream
It was more beautiful than I had envisioned in my dreams of the perfect wedding day. The staff was very kind, understanding, flexible, and accommodating. The barn is amazing, and having the manor for the weekend to spend time with my bridesmaids was so exciting, so much fun, the perfect way to spend the day/night before the wedding. I highly recommend it all!Sent on 07/27/2019

Beautiful venue with the BEST staff
Oakhaven is truly the BEST! They recently rebuilt the entire barn and it is breathtaking. The staff is what makes the difference between Oakhaven and other wedding venues. They are the most genuine, sweet people and they will go out of their way to make your day perfect. 30 minutes before my outdoor ceremony was supposed to start, it started pouring. Thankfully, 30 minutes later it stopped, but everything was soaked. The Oakhaven staff hurried to wipe off all of the seats, fix all the decorations, and literally dry the grass (with leaf blowers) to make the ceremony look like everything I had pictured. Jeanette, their recommended wedding planner, was life saver throughout the whole planning process and I would absolutely recommend booking her along with the venue!Sent on 07/27/2019

Would give them 10 stars if I could!
My daughter got married at Oakhaven in late June 2019. Everyone who attended raved about how beautiful and relaxed the wedding was! If we needed anything, we only had to ask once and it was taken care of. The vendors they suggested were awesome! We had 175 people in the barn in the heat of June and never once did we feel uncomfortable! If you are looking for a wedding venue Oakhaven should be on your list to visit!Sent on 07/29/2019

A beautiful wedding venue!
Oakhaven was the perfect venue! From the beginning of the visit, I felt so comfortable and welcome. They were always available whenever I needed something, and even after the tornado that knocked down the original barn, they reassured us that everything would be perfect for our wedding and it was! I would highly suggest Oakhaven for your wedding if you're looking for a rustic, charming venue!Sent on 08/07/2019

Beautiful Place for Beautiful Day
We originally chose Oakhaven before it was first destroyed and my heart broke when I found out what happened. However, I knew it would be even more beautiful. In the meantime, the staff was very helpful in answering questions and allowed us to visit several times during the building process. The staff made sure my day was beautiful and I will never forget what a treat this whole place was. Amazing!Sent on 07/26/2019

Couldn't ask for a more beautiful and personal wedding venue!
When my fiance and I first visited Oakhaven, we fell in love with the natural beauty of the property. As we sat down with the property manager Gary, it quickly became clear that he wasn't just trying to book a wedding date, but that he wanted us to feel as in love with Oakhaven as he was (and we were). We were one of the "tornado couples" whose wedding date fell after the tornado destroyed the original barn. We felt so strongly about the people and the property that we elected to push our wedding date by six months so that we could still get married at Oakhaven.Sent on 08/18/2019
We didn't expect the staff and management to be as passionate about perfecting our wedding day as we were, but they blew us away with their willingness to go above and beyond to make sure everything was as we'd hoped. Our weather forecast didn't look great for the wedding day, but the staff at Oakhaven was willing to wait until the morning of the wedding to execute "Plan B." They worked tirelessly the day of the wedding to transition an outdoor ceremony inside the new barn, without taking away from our experience leading up to the wedding.
In addition to the staff being absolutely outstanding, its difficult to do the property justice with words. The backdrop of our wedding pictures is absolutely stunning with the rolling hills, beautiful lake, and phenomenal sunsets. While the natural beauty is certainly one of the highlights of the property, Oakhaven has spared no expense on the reconstruction of the barn. Many of our guests commented on how nice the barn was and couldn't believe how affordable it was for our entire wedding weekend on the property.
Oakhaven provided us with the opportunity to not only have a wedding day, but a weekend of celebration. The accommodations on site made the rehearsal and day-of logistics a breeze and allowed us to be surrounded by family for the entire weekend.
We fell in love with this venue on our first visit and are so grateful that it became part of our wedding story. The cost, staff, and experience at Oakhaven is one that we feel can't be beat, and I think all of our wedding guests would agree.

Beautiful venue! Gary and Jeanette are so easy to work with. I really felt like they wanted our wedding day to be our dream come true. I loved having the house for my family and bridal party to stay in! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.Sent on 10/04/2018

My husband and I couldn't have picked a more perfect venue or more hospitable professionals to work with for our special day. Jeanette and Gary went above and beyond to ensure our wedding weekend went off without a hitch. We feel fortunate to have exchanged our vows under the breathtaking oak tree and danced the night away in the beautifully restored barn. From the first day we visited Oakhaven to the night we drove off as husband and wife, we feel truly blessed to have found this breathtaking place with equally lovely staff. I'd highly recommend any bride and groom to choose Oakhaven. You won't regret it.Sent on 10/09/2018

We absolutely loved having our wedding at Oakhaven! They were so willing to work with us. The grounds are breathetaking! We also rented the manor where my bridesmaids, both parents, and I stayed the night before and my in laws and family stayed the night of the wedding. The manor is so beautiful and spacious. We also hired Jeanette Wagoner to be our wedding director the day of, which was the best decision because she was VERY well organized and made our day go so smoothly. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Oakhaven each time.Sent on 10/09/2018

When we were planning our wedding, we looked at nearly 30 venues and chose Oak Haven because it was beautiful and by far the best value. We chose the whole weekend package for the convenience and it was a wonderful experience. We had our whole wedding party stay overnight at the venue and made the best memories. We were not rushed through preparing or cleaning afterwards. Both Gary Barrett and Jeanette Wagoner were extremely helpful and made even the most stressful things seem easy. They allowed us to personalize everything just how we had always dreamed without strict stipulations. They were so flexible and easy to get along with. Gary Barrett catered out rehearsal and everyone raved about the food. We fell in love with Oak Haven and by wedding day their staff felt like family.Sent on 10/09/2018

We had our wedding and rehearsal dinner at Oakhaven earlier this month, and we could not be more happy with the experience that we had. The staff was helpful, flexible, and a joy to work with throughout the whole process. Gary cut sunflowers for us from the gardens at the venue to use in the mason jars with the shepherd hooks for the ceremony and around our cupcake display. He really went above and beyond for us all weekend and during the planning. The venue is also stunning. We had our ceremony under the trees by the gazebo, and the shade was wonderful on the hot summer day. They've made so many beautiful improvements to the venue in the last year, making the barn and even the bathrooms even more beautiful. We loved having the manor house to get ready and for grandparents to sit before the ceremony. Everyone raved about the beautiful buildings and scenery. Our guests were truly amazed by this wonderful venue. It was a beautiful weekend, and we are so happy that we chose Oakhaven for our wedding!Sent on 07/19/2016

We loved working with Oakhaven! They were so flexible and truly made our weekend as special as possible. We opted to rent the property out for the whole weekend (Friday, Saturday, and even Sunday). We were able to arrive Friday morning to begin decorating. We held our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner at the venue, and we stayed there in the house along with our entire bridal party (11 of us total, plus a few ushers/attendants). The next morning we were able to wake up knowing everything for the reception was already set up and start our day preparing for the actual wedding. Our hair/make up vendors were able to come to the venue to do everything, so we never had to leave the house. The staff were there to fulfill any needs we had or to cart us from the house to the reception area on their golf cart. The staff used the golf cart to aid any guests who had difficulty with walking. While it may sound like there was a distance between reception and ceremony, it was really just a short gravel drive and the golf cart was just available in case someone needed it. The venue has bathrooms near the ceremony space we used, as well as at the barn we held our reception in. We found that this was not a common thing for most barn venues (many required you to rent port-a-potties, which also required generators in some cases). They supplied the chairs (and pews!) we needed for our ceremony, as well as the tables, chairs, and linens for our reception. They had tables for everything form our food, drinks, cake, gifts, and DJ, to a special sweet heart table just for us. The barn includes fans for when it is warm and heat for when it is cold. They were able to easily accommodate our 150+ guest list and then some. Just off the barn was a beautiful deck, which many of our guest took advantage of for sunset photoshoots. The venue has ample ceremony space opportunities, but we opted for the space between the house and the gazebo. It is a wonderful place, ran by wonderful people!Sent on 05/06/2016

Greatest Day of my life!
Oakhaven properties is one of the most beautiful, scenic and inclusive wedding venues you could could hope to find. My wife and I booked Oakhaven after her sister's wedding at the property and witnessed the magical transformation that occurred due to the storm. Oakhaven is an absolute gem, a diamond in the rough venue that is only beginning to blossom. There is no doubt that within the next few years Oakhaven will be considered one of the premier venues in the NC/VA area.Sent on 05/23/2019
