“From the first phone call up to the last dance, Mr. Bobby and his gracious staff handled my guests and the entire wedding party like royalty.”

– Shelita, Southern Oaks Plantation Bride

When we asked Shelita what she would say to other couples considering us as their venue, here is what she had to say:

If you are looking for the perfect venue that provides exceptional service, great food and a magical evening, Southern Oaks is the place.  From the first phone call up to the last dance, Mr. Bobby and his gracious staff handled my guests and the entire wedding party like royalty.   Every question I had regarding my wedding was answered, this venue provides everything and they do not try to upsell you on items…If you are a destination bride, no worries, they even have items in house for you to use, that way you are not shipping a lot of what nots or just in case you forget something they already have it in their inventory at no charge to use.  There are no hidden fees, upcharges or surprises.  Well, the surprises are what your guests will experience.  My wedding was Magical, Grand and Royal.  Everything was smooth and effortless, the staff operates this place like a well-oiled machine.  There is no running around, no one is confused and you, the wedding party and family members are assigned a concierge that ensures your culinary/drink needs are met.  The Food:  It is not your typical wedding plate of chicken, fish or buffet.  This place provides a Taste of New Orleans, I mean your guest will not stop talking about what they ate, how good the food was and how much food was being passed.  Amazing flavors and a huge variety.  There is no waiting, once the reception starts the food is being passed, this style was great because it also eliminated the hassle of seating charts, open seating was also another reason I loved this place.  Enhancements:  I chose to have a New Orleans Style Brass Band, Horse and Carriage, Carving Station and Fireworks, which made it a very grand time, my guest were over-stimulated with surprises.

In your opinion, what is the best characteristic of Southern Oaks Plantation?

I don’t know if I could pick just one best characteristic but for me it was the ambiance. It is so romantic and beautiful. For my guests, it was the food – they still can’t stop talking about how much they loved the food at our wedding.

– This destination bride knew exactly how to wow her guests!

This Disney loving bride knew she would wed at Southern Oaks Plantation since she was just a child!

What made you select Southern Oaks Plantation as your wedding venue?
Selecting Southern Oaks Plantation as my wedding venue was something I always wanted. When I got engaged, I knew from the start that this was the place I wanted to get married. My parents & my Aunt and Uncle got married at SOP, and I was lucky enough to be a part of both celebrations! I was around 6 & 7 when these weddings took place and Southern Oaks has been my dream wedding venue ever since! I also went to elementary school down the street from Southern Oaks and I can remember as a child always taking a peek when we passed. I was and am in love with this venue!
