Where can I hold my ceremony?
There are several locations that would be ideal for a ceremony at White Oaks including:
- Behind the Barn: This location for a ceremony takes advantage of the distant tree-line and overlooks acres of farmland. Also, adding to the beauty of this location is the back of the barn which is full of large windows and board & batten architecture
- Inside the Barn: This location is perfect if you prefer an indoor ceremony option, especially during inclement weather. The beautiful indoor details and array of windows, offering amazing views of the countryside and a picturesque combination of architecture and nature.
Can I use my own caterer?
You may use any licensed and insured caterer. We do require that your caterer be in touch with us 30 days prior to the event to make specific arrangements and go over guidelines.
Can we have alcohol at our event?
Yes! We would be glad to discuss options to ensure your beverage needs are met.
Can we decorate any way we prefer?
We ask that all decorations be discussed and pre-approved. We do not allow any nailing or attaching things to the wall or ceiling unless it is specifically pre-approved. We also do not allow open flame candles. You may arrange the tables any way you choose. Please remember that anything you bring in must be removed by the end of your event.
