“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
Southern Oaks began as a dream for the Asaro family. Bobby Asaro knew there was a niche market for elegant, high-end reception venues that needed to be filled, and he had just the plan to fill it. He got his wife, Sue, involved from their first date, drawing his plans out on a napkin and dreaming of Southern Oaks.Southern Oaks began as a dream for the Asaro family. Bobby Asaro knew there was a niche market for elegant, high-end reception venues that needed to be filled, and he had just the plan to fill it. He got his wife, Sue, involved from their first date, drawing his plans out on a napkin and dreaming of Southern Oaks.
Between his strong attention to detail (developed when he was working in radiology) and Sue’s innovative thinking and impeccable taste, Asaro knew that they were on to something big. They’ve spent the last 32 years perfecting the experience of Southern Oaks Plantation to curate a feeling of magic and enchantment. There is a reason why local and couples from all over the world choose to marry at Southern Oaks, because an unmatched level of customer service is presented from the very moment they step foot onto our plantation.

Truly a family affair, you will find Bobby and Sue Asaro take care to ensure that no detail will go unnoticed. Rarely will you find another venue owner present on your wedding day to greet guests, fill up your champagne glass, or surprise you with a fireworks show! Mr. Bobby and his team consistently go above and beyond for their couples, because you will find that this is not a career for the Asaro family, but a passion.
“Of course, I have to mention Mr. Bobby, the heart and soul of Southern Oaks Plantation. The weather went from 0% to 100% chance of rain on our wedding day. I had dreamed of this outdoor wedding under the oaks with the carriage and fireworks for a very long time. As it inched closer and closer to 7 o’clock it was looking like that dream was going to have to be revised. As soon as we arrived at Southern Oaks Plantation, Mr. Bobby came to find me and assured me that he and his team would do everything that they possibly could to make my dream come true. And they delivered. I had the wedding I always dreamed of thanks to him.” – Annie, 2018
“Mr. Bobby made us feel like absolute royalty! We did not lift a finger the entire night!” – Marissa, 2018
