Wedding Spotlight: Charles + Amanda

Charles and Amanda’s wedding was filled sweet details, and Amanda shares that
her guests and family had a great time, and are still raving about their wedding!
“Thank you again to the Southern Oaks staff for going above and beyond in making this a day to always remember!”
Our engagement was simple an to the point. My husband and I have been knowing each other for 15 years and dated for 2, so neither one of us really cared about the over the top engagement – just give me my much deserved ring!!!
Everything about Southern Oaks is BEAUTIFULL!!!  From the oversized oak tree, to the elegant yet simple decorations, to the amazingly blue pool, and the horses. The entire venue is absolutely breathtaking. Southern Oaks was the first venue my mother, aunt, and daughter saw, but was the last venue we chose to do a walk though with, so glad that we chose them.
My husband and I met through friends when we were about a year out of high school. My husband and I always kept in touch, and over the years developed a close friendship and naturally started dating.
All of the staff at Southern Oaks was amazing, but Lauren was there to go over all the details with my husband and I the day before the wedding, and she took very good care of us, my family and friends at the wedding. She is very professional, and pretty much became a part of the family the whole time – she was AMAZING!!!! Also, Time, he was ON IT!!!!! For some reason we couldn’t find the groom’s ring, but he made very, very sure they would be found quickly and nothing would happen to them and he kept his word as well. I have only great things to say about the staff! They made sure everyone was overstuffed, had a drink in both hands, and kept the party going.
For the couples out there that have visited Southern Oaks and just can’t quite decide, I would tell them CHOOSE SOUTHERN OAKS!!!!!
The food was so sososososososos good and I do mean GOOD. The staff went above and beyond, the decorations were tastefully done, the whole atmosphere was laid back while elegant, and made you feel at ease and fully taken care of. I had no worries at all. Southern Oaks did exactly what they said they would do, and my wedding came out perfectly.
The vendors I used were all local being that I’m from Houston, Tx and had a destination wedding
*Photography: Studio Tran- my photographer was Corrine she knew the venue inside and out every single picture she took was gorgeous.
*Bakery: Royal Cakery New Orleans- I wanted a simple 2 layer white cake with white icing cake and they added some flowers to our cake to make it so much more elegant. The whole 2 layer cake was gone by the end of the night, the cake was unbelievably moist and the icing OMG!!! I ate so much cake its ridiculous!!!
