Dog of Honor . . .

Our furry friends are there for us on a daily basis so why leave them home on your big day? This bride’s puppy, Stella, did a great job escorting the ringer bearer down the aisle and added character to the day, from start to finish. We understand that your wedding may not be complete without them and so we welcome your well-behaved, canine wedding party members here at The Oaks!

Stephanie and Ted’s elegant fall wedding here at The Oaks was anything but boring…from the apples hanging in the oak tree to the western-themed “Bronco Bar” and personalized corn hole game at the reception, this couple clearly wanted to remember their day as a fun event for all.

So it seems especially flattering that The Oaks was featured as the first such venue in Southern Bride & Groom’s latest article on these amazing homes! Pick up your copy today to check it out!

A Twist on Tradition…

Not all parties have to be huge bashes…check out our latest feature in Cary Magazine, where an intimate holiday table setting at The Oaks was featured in their “DIY Decor” article. The modern-themed clear and white table setting gives the perfect contrast against The Oaks’ traditional details, while pops of bright, deep reds make the scene anything but boring. This unique and surprising theme was the vision of Katie Dunn of La Fête Event Planning. Special thanks to ThemeWorks and CE Rentals for the fabulous pieces featured in the table setting.

A Perfect Day…

With the hot days of summer behind us, we love the crispness of fall. And what better way to celebrate than with the deep, rich hues of red and purple…elegant simplicty, both classic and modern…and glimmering lights twinkling in the clear evening sky? Mary and Jeff’s wedding here at The Oaks brought it all together, with custom touches including a wine cork theme and scroll accents in the bride’s bouquet. Every polished detail punctuated their perfect day…congrats to a fabulous couple! Check out our facebook page for more of the beautiful images from Macon Photography.
