DO NOT BOOK WITH OAKLAND! So many terrible things, I don't even know where to begin. We booked Oakland in September 2015 for our wedding 8-6-16. Pam was incredible and had worked there for so long, we felt very comfortable working with her. The biggest selling point for us was the adorable chapel. In January, I received a phone call from an unknown number. It was new lady, named Michelle, who informed us that the owner (Vish Baskaran) sold part of the land - which included the chapel. AND THAT THE CHAPEL WAS TORN DOWN. They did offer us a full refund of our money we had already paid; however, we had already purchased our invitations and with being only 7 months out, it was too short of time to rush to find a new venue. We decided to stick it out, but we really wish we didn't. The week before the wedding, we found out Vish Baskaran had rented out the house to a family for the month of August - during our wedding.

SO MANY things were terrible with this whole process. While they were cheap, that was the only good thing about this place. Word to any future bride: DO NOT CHOOSE OAKLAND.

I met with Pam right away knowing that spots fill up quickly. She was very relaxed and answered any questions I had about the venue and what to expect. I love the venue and the old charm is possesses. The trees and land are beautiful and set away from any traffic and businesses. The reception area isn't the most up to date and could use some renovations, but I'm a pretty simple and creative, so I will be sprucing it up. The cost is minimal and she even threw in a moon walk for all the kids. The best part of the ceremony that I'm looking forward to the most is the horse drawn carriage ride around to the beginning of the aisle.

Oakland Farm and Ranch was a great venue for my wedding. It was charming and quaint and was a good value, considering how expensive most venues are in Houston. Pam is great and made sure everything was taken care of before and during the wedding. We reserved the venue a year in advance, but didn't start planning all the details with Pam until about 2 months out. It was a relief to not have to stress over finding vendors, getting decor, etc - Pam takes care of it all. However, there were some issues.

Getting a packaged deal means working with specific vendors. The minister was nice, but spoke so quickly during the ceremony that it only lasted about 10 minutes. It was very noticeable that he was speeding through all the words. He originally said the ceremony would take about 20 minutes. Afterwards, he came to take a photo with my husband and I and said he needed to leave right away for another event - no wonder he went so fast. It may be his daily job, but it's our one special day and we were not happy with his performance.

Also, the DJ was a joke. We filled out all their paperwork and provided our own detailed song list, yet DJ Will wasn't prepared. He had to come up to me several times during the reception to go over the agenda - the last person the DJ should be bothering is the couple on their wedding day. He didn't engage with our group at all. There were times when the music was way too loud and people asked him to turn it down, but he wouldn't. The worst part was that we asked for a few specific songs to be played at certain times. Well, one song he didn't have - again, not prepared. He wasted so much time trying to get the song - a popular oldies song - not some hard to get number. After about 30 minutes of promising he was getting the song ready, he finally said he couldn't do it and we missed out on a big family moment - the song had such special meaning to many of us, yet he totally dropped the ball.

Pam and her staff created an unforgettable experience for us. We couldn't have asked for a better day. They went above and beyond our expectations. They were very organized and kept everything on track. I needed a safety pin for my dress during the reception and she stopped what she was doing to go find one. It was our perfect fairyytale wedding. Everyone loved the wedding and said everything was beautiful. Thanks again Pam, you helped make our day perfect.

You cannot match the value of this place. Pam can be a little overbearing, but she has your best interest at heart. These people know what they are doing. The venue is beautiful. The cakes are amazing. The food is pretty good. The DJ does an admirable job. The coolest thing is the carriage ride. As a groom, most of the wedding stuff was just overrated junk, but this place had everything I wanted. It also made my wife have the fairytale wedding she always wanted.

Pam was a joy to work with, she was very responsive both before and after the wedding. She went above and beyond for our wedding. She was a delight during the rehearsal keeping us all at ease and making us laugh. Reception room was set up early allowing changes to be made if necessary. Food was great! DJ was very good, even if he did not play all our song requests. He got the crowd up and moving all nite long. Chapel was beautiful and I heard the guest gasped when they saw me arriving in the horse drawn carriage. Ms Jimmie's cakes were not only beautiful but tasted great! I never saw a line at the bar and everyone was quickly served. This venue fit us to a tee. I highly recommend as an all inclusive hidden jewel to have your wedding.

We did rent the house as well. It is an old house that is being updated so keep that in mind if renting. It does need to be painted. However, it worked great for our needs.

My daughter's wedding and reception were at Oakland Farm and Ranch on October 10, 2009, Pam and the staff were so wonderful we couldn't have ask for more. The chapel is lovely and the large reception hall easily accomodates around 100 guests. The brides horse drawn carriage entrance was truly magical. The bride's grandfather performed the ceremony and Oakland honored and welcomed our outside clergy. The food and service - spectacular. The bride was a little concerned there was another wedding the same evening in another area of the venue when she booked, however, the evening of the wedding it didn't interfere or detract from her special day in anyway. Pam and the staff made every guest feel like they part of the Oakland family. As mother of the bride, I had no details to worry about the day of the wedding, Pam made sure everything was taken care of. All the gifts and keepsakes were packed up and loaded after the ceremony, including dinner and champagne to go for the bride and groom. There were some items like the cake topper that I was unable to locate when I arrived home and Pam stayed in contact with me until they were located. We had looked at several other venues in the Tomball/Spring area and are so happy we selected Oakland Farm & Ranch. I honestly do not think any other locations we looked at would have made us feel like family or been as magical as Oakland. Couldn't have asked for more!

I was lucky enough to have our wedding at the Oakland Farm and Ranch on July 14, 2012. It was in the middle of a "Rainmaker", but somehow Pam, the amazing wedding coordinator and Glenn the fantastic DJ were right and I got my outdoor wedding. Pam had the chapel decorated in my colors, just in case. The carriage ride brought tears and oohs and ahhs. The ceremony was decorated beautifully and when I decided to save a few$ and not get rose petals for the runner, Pam went and got some for me. Pam is a life saver. She is experienced and knows exactly what to do for any occasion. The minister was well poised and brought tears and laughter to us all. The reception hall is amazing. We chose the smaller one so that the dance floor was in the center. It was exactly what I had envisioned. The cakes were lovely and very tasty. Everything was organized and flowed. My guests have commented on how it was the best wedding they have ever been to and had so much fun. Glen played different types of music at just the right time and everyone got out on the dance floor. We ordered the smooth pork loin meal and it was terrific. We are all so delighted with the wedding ceremony and reception. I only wish I was a better writer so that I could properly express our experience with the Oakland Farm and Ranch.

I read all the other comments and any of the negative ones are probably from over obsessed brides or very picky snobby people because this place was wonderful! They were very helpful with everything and had no problem changing things last minute. My ceremony was outside and it rained so they had the chapel ready to go. They also let us use the house and chapel to get ready which was very nice. Last minute it stopped so they laid extra runner and sand so I could have it outside and it was magical. The horse and carriage is the best part all my guests loved it. The reverend was amazing and funny and so nice. The DJ was awesome and played great music we picked he even let my dad sing some songs that he had written. Pam was so helpful and she even called after to say thank you and ask how the honeymoon went! Overall this was a great experience and I would do it all over again if I could!!
