In your opinion, what is the best characteristic of Southern Oaks Plantation?
The beautiful grounds and the amazing staff. We are from New York City and planning a destination wedding with Southern Oaks was a piece of cake! They were so incredibly helpful and the day couldn’t have gone more perfect which is pretty amazing since we never even had to visit NOLA in between the time it took to find the venue and over a year later on our wedding day!
I could go on and on about Southern Oaks Plantation and how awesome everything about this place is. There are some things that really stuck with me through this experience though. The Thursday prior to mine and Cody’s wedding we went to the plantation for our rehearsal. I told Taylor to decorate the venue how they thought it should look for a wedding. They’re the professionals right? Boy, was I blown away on how everything looked! It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! During my reception, Cody and I were treated like royalty. I’m a very “ Do It yourself” kind of person, and the staff at Southern Oaks made sure I didn’t have to do ANYTHING myself. I didn’t have to worry about ONE single thing. EVERYTHING was taken care of. My mother is also very controlling, which is also why I chose this venue. My mom was able to wake up and relax on the day of the wedding. The mother of the bride,I feel always has a little added stress, and she didn’t have to worry about one single thing because Southern Oaks Plantation took care of every single small and large detail. During the whole reception Cody and I always had a full drink. I also loved the private dinner we got right after the ceremony. We were able to soak everything in, and enjoy one another as husband and wife. Another thing that also stood out to me was how well my grandparents were taken care of. My grandparents are 85 and 89 and one of my request was that they get taken care of before anyone else. Southern Oaks treated them so well. They were the first to try anything and everything on the menu, which I loved. The food was also AMAZING!!!! Southern Oaks sent Cody and I a to-go box home of our favorite items on the menu. When we got to our hotel room that night, before we went to bed we were both so pumped about digging into that to-go box!! haha!! Cody could NOT stop talking about SOP’s praline chicken…. it is TO DIE FOR!!
Is there any other feedback you’d like to include?
Southern Oaks is by far the BEST venue and has the BEST staff!! Everyone in the bridal party kept saying “We had our own attendants and it was awesome! We never went without a drink!” Also, since we live in Shreveport, most of our family and friends didn’t understand why we were getting married in NOLA…. They FINALLY understood when they saw the venue. They said it was a magical night!!!
