Holy smokes! Where do I begin??? This place, the employees, the atmosphere! It is the most perfect place to have your wedding! The first time I walked though that door I was absolutely taken away! I was introduced to an amazing lady named Lauren. She was the sweetest person I had dealt with while going crazy trying to find a place to hold my wedding. She answered any questions I had and was so patient. I was later introduced to Mr. Bobby. Well he has that perfect southern charm and made us feel like he has been knowing us for years. We had our baby and he heard from Lauren that I am a huge Disney fan. Well hello, I use to work at Disney! Lol anyways, he gave our little girl a stuffed Minnie Mouse. It’s the little things that catches people’s attention. She still has it and carries it around all the time. The whole place made you feel like you were home! The absolute best! I will take you to the week of our wedding. I was a stressed bride to say the least. The day we went to drop some stuff off at the plantation, Lauren worked her magic and made everything so calm. I remember her always telling me “let us do the worrying, let us do the work!” And that they did. Now, night of my wedding they met us before the doors of the limo stopped. They are so orchestrated and everything is down to a science you, the bride, don’t have time to worry about this or that, they are already 10 steps ahead. Me. Bobby told my Matron of Honor “I have a little surprise for her!” Well holy smokes let me tell you! This man went above and beyond! Mickey and Minnie showed up at my wedding and to top it off I really got to have FIREWORKS at my wedding!!! The food was amazing! They have so much, so don’t worry about leaving hungry! Everyone that came to our wedding all agreed this was the best wedding they have ever been to. They are all still talking about it wanting to do it over so they can relive it. This is truest a magical place where DREAMS COME TRUE!

Oh my goodness. Where do I begin. I could not thank Southern Oaks Plantation enough for the magical wedding we had this December. Mr. Bobby, you are an amazing human being. He was there himself and talked to me and assured me how great everything was going to be and asked me what exactly I had in mind and his opinions and let me tell you, our minds were blown myself included. When we booked with Southern Oaks Plantation we knew this was a great venue but we had no idea how GREAT it was going to be. I have had multiple people including kids tell me how this was the best wedding they had been to. The staff is AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. I had champagne all night, they made sure we ate, made sure our families were doing okay, I mean you name it, they made sure it happened. now about the food…. THE BEST FOOD I HAVE HAD! wow just wow. the food kept coming from the moment everyone went in and it did not stop. I have had almost every single guest at the wedding comment on how great the food was. It was AMAZING. We took a little bit longer eating our dinner because we wanted more and more.. Honestly, the best decision we made was to book with Southern Oaks Plantation. We live in Houston so this was a destination wedding for us and I was very nervous as I did not get to go to LA and did not feel like I was as prepared as I should be? But oh my oh my, How AMAZING everyone at Southern Oaks Plantation made it to be. It was truly a magical wedding, a wedding to remember. We had guests come in from New Jersey and California many of which had never visited LA before and they were so amazed and loved every single thing about this venue. My husband and I truly recommend this place to anyone who is looking and is not sure. Trust me, you will not regret it. Thank you Mr. Bobby and all the amazing staff for making all our dreams and even more come true! We could not have even imagined how perfect it was going to be, beyond our imagination. Thank you.

Southern Oaks exceeded my greatest expectations. Nowhere I considered matched their charm and hospitality. The day of the wedding I was impressed more than I thought possible. There were attendants by my side the whole night to help when needed, but I wasn’t overcrowded. The highly trained staff eased every uneasy nerve I had. The experience was so spectacular, I wish I could relive it. Southern Oaks was there for me for my whole engagement and constantly made sure I had what I needed. They are the only group of people I would back up 100% without hesitation. My parents and in-laws were equally impressed. My guests raved about the great food at the reception- and still do! Thank you Southern Oaks for the best night of mine and my husband’s lives.
