An Open House to Remember . . .

We couldn’t have dreamt up a more fabulous North Carolina Spring day for our 2nd Annual Express Wedding & Open House last Sunday, April 2nd! Fifteen incredible vendors partnered with us to create an unforgettable event for over 200 guests. Thanks to all that came out and participated. We were very proud to share our venue again and can’t wait until next time!

A Fresh Start…

It’s said that Spring is a season for new beginnings. Around here we are certainly honoring that expression, breathing new life into our barn by adorning it with a new sliding barn door and freshly installed windows. Talk about a photo op! But this is only a glimpse of what is to come, stay tuned to read more about our barn property and how we plan to also use it as a farm.

The Pathway . . .

Spring has sprung here at The Oaks! Throughout the winter, we have been busy preparing for the upcoming wedding season and are so excited to announce the addition of our new paver pathway! This gorgeous walkway extends from the facility and tent, all the way around the pond, and to the front of the aisle and doors at the courtyard. Among many other benefits, now after rains, we can continue with ceremonies at the courtyard without the worry of wet grounds! Just off the path near the patio terrace, we have also constructed a new, stone firepit complete with Adirondack chairs for guests to relax and enjoy the scenery during events.  Check out the firepit and other new photos by scrolling through our updated Facility & Grounds and Weddings galleries!

Swinging into Fall . . .

The leaves were slow to turn this year in North Carolina but Fall has finally arrived at The Oaks! Our property expansion has created a plethora of fresh photo opportunities, including the barn, new house & sunset views, and the rustic swing hanging from a century-old mulberry tree! Visit our wedding gallery for more images recently captured on the new acreage!

The Oaks is Growing . . .

We are excited to announce that The Oaks has acquired the property adjacent to our courtyard which includes a gorgeous, rustic barn (ideal for photos)!   Other recent additions include a tree-lined, 2-acre, open field on the other side of the venue and a stunning, split-rail fence that adds new dimension to the newly expanded, 11+ acre property. We are already seeing some incredible & unique pictures captured in and around the new spaces – bring on the Fall!

One Hot Express Wedding . . .

This past Sunday, June 12th we hosted our first annual, Express Wedding here at The Oaks! We didn’t let the late Spring heat wave slow things down a bit! Guests attended a fast-paced, mock ceremony at our courtyard followed by a reception in the tent complete with amazing food, drinks and time to mingle with 1 of our 15 fabulous vendors.  A special “Thank You” to all those who came out to participate and support us and our venue. We are so proud of how this beautiful event turned out and we can’t wait to do it again!

Embrace the Rain . . .

. . . because we all know it happens! At The Oaks at Salem, we don’t believe you should have to sacrifice your dream of an outdoor wedding or event because of rain fears. Many clients choose our venue for this very reason – we have a good, solid & yet simple rain plan! If the forecast calls for drops, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered! While ceremonies held in our courtyard are stunning, those in our 3,000 square foot tent are often remembered as show-stoppers. See our wedding gallery for more beautiful rain photos!

Casino Night . . .

A national builder recently hosted their casino-themed holiday party here at The Oaks for the 2nd year! The tent came alive with fun and entertainment including poker, blackjack, craps, roulette, and a magician. Wonderful food and great music elevated this event to “A-Party-to-Remember” status!
