From a fireworks surprise to a ride in the Rolls Royce, Andrew and Josh’s wedding was nothing but excitement. So happy for this wonderful couple and thankful that they chose Southern Oaks for their wedding!
Tell us about your engagement: We went to Rafian Brazilian Steak house for Thanksgiving dinner with Josh’s family. We went around the table and said what we were thankful for and Josh was last and said he was thankful for me and the proposed in the restaurant. People were clapping and Andrew started to cry because he was so overwhelmed with joy!
In your opinion, what is the best characteristic of Southern Oaks Plantation? How organized they were. They are seriously a well-oiled machine and did not have one hiccup the entire time that we noticed.
How did you and your partner meet? Josh and I met on an online date website. I originally met him at Applebee’s for lunch which I was 30 minutes late because of a GPS issue. I finally made it and it was just so easy to talk to him. We ended up going to walk around the park which was nearby for about an hour or so. Later that night we went out to dinner and the Mavericks game. Josh had never been to a professional sporting event so it just made it even sweeter!
What made you select Southern Oaks Plantation as your wedding venue? We had read many reviews online plus when we were talking to the other vendors they raved about Southen Oaks. Once we drove up and walked in we both knew this is the place we wanted to get married!
What was your favorite moment of the night? Our favorite moment was when we were walking back down the aisle after we got married. They told us to stop at the fountain and BOOM goes the fireworks. That was a HUGE surprise. Both Josh and I were in awe how beautiful it was. And it didn’t stop there when Bobby picked us up in the Rolls Royce! Really made a big impact on the evening and it just got better from there!
Overall, they were amazing! I wouldn’t change anything they did.
In regards to other vendors, Andrew and Josh had rave reviews. “Ryan North was amazing! Pictures were on point! Our Cake from the Sweet Life Bakery was sooo good and moist and not dry at all!”
Was there a particular staff member at SOP that really stood out to you? Lauren! She was amazing from the first time we walked into the venue until the sending us on our way after the party! I cant thank her and the staff enough for making the night perfect!
What would you say to other Grooms considering Southern Oaks Plantation as their venue? Just relax and let them do their thing. They know what they are doing and just let the evening go and ENJOY!
