We get it…

We know the venue you choose is going to be a large part of your wedding budget. Choosing the right venue is important because it sets the tone for your whole wedding. Our all-white modern barn venue rivals spaces seen in larger cities, like Memphis and Nashville. But…without the “big city” price tag. You get that stunning space you’ve been dreaming of without spending your entire wedding budget on a venue. That leaves room for all the wonderful vendors you get to hand select for your BIG DAY. Oh, and don’t think that “small town” means you will have to settle. The vendors in our market are some of the best you’ll find anywhere in the country. Not to mention you get to celebrate with family and friends in an gorgeous, quaint country setting away from the hustle and bustle (yet super convenient to lots of amenities). You and your wedding will be the focus-not what’s happening outside the venue.

What comes with my venue investment?

We think it’s important for you to know what all is included in your venue rental. Because it’s hard to compare venues solely based on price, we’re going to tell you a little more about what you’ll get if you choose to become a White Oak Farms couple:

  • Exclusive use of the venue (we don’t book more than 1 wedding per day)

  • Almost 5,000 square feet of fully climate controlled space (we are fully insulated and have 4 Heat/AC units for the building) We mention this because not all barns are built alike. We are a finished event space that was designed for events year-round. The last thing you’d want is your guests burning up in the summer or freezing in the winter.

  • An 8,000 square foot courtyard

  • Over 20 acres to take stunning photos (water features, wooded tree lines, a dreamy “forest”- all set in a peaceful country setting)

  • An onsite Venue Assistant the entire time-should you need anything with the venue the entire day. Need the lights dimmed because the DJ has started? Need the temperature adjusted in the building? Does your vendor need help with a question? Our team is here to serve you on your big day.

  • Use of any of our furniture, which includes 60” rounds tables, 48” round cake tables, hightops, custom ceremony arbor and benches that match our building design, fruitwood chairs (yep-no white plastic folding chairs here), Custom Kegerator-if serving beer, antique church pew, antique mantle, and any other decor we have in our collection.

  • The Belle Bridal Suite-perfectly appointed suite for you and your girls to spend the day getting ready and making memories. It includes a private restroom, 2 hair and make-up stations, plenty of chargers for all your cellphones, a Wedding Day emergency cabinet, and windows with no screens (we did this so you’ll have great pictures!) It’s located inside the building so you don’t have to trek across a parking lot or drive to the venue once you’re ready. We’d hate for you to get wet after getting your hair and make-up done.

  • The Beaux Groom’s Suite - most guys refer to this as the Man Cave. It features a TV with wifi access-yep you can log in to your account and won’t miss that big game, a huge leather sofa, fridge, and a private restroom. We’ve even had guys bring their Playstations to pass the day away while they were getting ready.

  • A foyer to greet guests, to coat check, to show off your wedding cakes, for a donut wall or memory table or a place for gifts and favors.

  • 3 Ceremony Areas (The Main Hall-seats up to 240 in traditional rows, The Courtyard or The Grove)

  • A “tack room” hidden in the walls of the first floor to serve as a unique bar area, cake serving area, coffee bar, ice cream bar or DJ booth. Yes-we’ve seen all of those happen in it!

  • Full restrooms located on the main level (Handicap Accessible)-we get told all the time they are the most gorgeous bathrooms people have seen in a venue.

  • A coat closet/storage closet off the main entrance-if it’s winter, your guests will have a spot for their coat. Otherwise, it’s the perfect spot for those Grand Exit sparklers or favors you’ll pass out late in the night.

  • A catering kitchen with easy access to the private rear entrance. This is super important so your guests don’t see them loading in and out. They also have a private ramp out back to a private service parking lot for easy load-in.

  • Front parking lot with parking lot lighting and a drop-off parking pad-your guests will easily be able to access the venue with onsite parking. If someone is elderly, handicapped or needs a little extra time, our front entrance is handicap-accessible.

  • All lighting is on dimmers-this is super important for photographers and ambience.

  • A beautiful blank white canvas with high-end finishes and custom touches. Why is that important to know as part of your investment? Well, we’ve never had a single client bring in drapery or lighting to our venue to make it prettier. Those things can cost $$ to the tune of $1000s, and our space is stunning just as it is. So, when you’re comparing venues, it’s important to know if you’re going to have to spend extra to make your venue beautiful.

  • We give every client a PDF drawing of your layout. That way, when you show up on your wedding day, you’ll know exactly what the space will look like. We have it set up prior to your arrival so you and your families don’t have to stress about that detail. This layout is also a great tool to use when selecting the right number of linens and centerpieces so you don’t over-order or under-order.

  • You get to take your engagement session here at no additional charge. In fact, we’re pretty honored you’d choose our property to take those pictures.

  • This list will always be added to…our owners truly believe in making our space one-of-a-kind. Because of that, they are always looking for ways to continue to enhance the White Oak Farms’ experience for our couples and their guests.
