One trip to view the property and meet the staff at twin oaks, and you'll immediately see what other reviewers have gushed about. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking (note: every time you go, they get prettier and prettier!) The staff was absolutely top quality. Twin Oaks was our first venue we looked at, and we knew immediately that this was the place for us and these were the people we wanted to work with. They were always 10 steps ahead of any questions or concerns I had, extremely organized, and provided top service every step of the way.

I've been to weddings where the entire wedding party and more are running around the day of the wedding, setting up centerpieces, explaining to vendors how things should look, etc. Never would that happen at Twin Oaks. I did not have a single concern about the wedding day and how they would execute what we had discussed in our planning meetings. They did not disappoint in the slightest.

To our coordinator, Dana, and my lovely "lady in waiting" Erin, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I'm actually tearing up thinking about how amazingly wonderful you were to us on our wedding day. We could not have done this without you, and for that we will always be grateful.

It was a destination wedding for us. Twin Oaks was so flexible and helpful when planning our wedding. They took the time to really listen to what we wanted and made it happen for us. It was a great experience.

Twin Oaks is not only absolutely breathtaking, but the staff and service make it a perfect experience.
I truly felt like a VIP every time I called, went in for a meeting with the included wedding coordinator as well as on the rehearsal and wedding day. They help you with every step of the way and have an amazing staff that sets up everything on the wedding day. I was planning this wedding from Northern California and they made everything easy for me.
A few things I really like about this venue over other venues I looked at are the following:
-Bring your own beer, wine and liquor. This meant we didn't have to overpay for drinks through the venue that weren't consumed. We bargained shopped for the best deals and were able to return leftover unopened product afterwards (an extra $600 we got back)
-included cake with NO cake cutting fee! Through 3 of their trusted vendors, our cake was included in the package
-Day of Coordinator and Bridal Assistant: these two people, Chris and Rebecca, were so charming, helpful and supportive. They went above and beyond to do anything we asked and get anything we needed.
-10 hour venue time. Most venues will give you 6-8 hours for the space. Twin Oaks gives you 10 hours so you can take advantage of the bridal suite and grooms room.
I would highly recommend Twin Oaks!

Our wedding was beautiful! If Twin Oaks is "your style" then go for it. Of course, there were a few tiny snags along the way but 5 months after my wedding I can barely remember them. The overall experience was just what I wanted for my wedding. The food was great, the staff was ALWAYS helpful and polite and I found them fairly easy to communicate with. The grounds are magical, we got so many compliments on our venue choice! I'm not going to drag out my review because no wedding experience is the same so I would just tell you that you probably can't go wrong having your big day here. Expect a few issues, wedding planning always has them (so I hear), but if you choose to enjoy your day and your new spouse then everything will be perfect in your own eyes when all is said and done! Twin Oaks was a great choice for me and my husband.

Beautiful venue tucked away from I-15. I still don't remember what I googled to find this venue, but it was a stroke of luck after looking at other venues and not really getting excited. Walking into Twin Oaks, I was immediately excited. Surrounded by trees, reception and wedding site all in one area, parking lots with lots of space. Twin Oaks is also a package deal, so less stress and I didn't have to find so many vendors. Their food was delicious! Everyone we worked with was so helpful and really made our wedding day fantastic. Highly recommend!

My wedding on June 28th was so perfect & magical largely in part to Twin Oaks Garden Estate. I remember when I first walked into the venue, I knew instantly that I would have my fairytale wedding here. I can honestly say that everything ran smoothly & exactly as I had planned it for our wedding day. The venue itself is so unique & beautiful that all of our guests kept asking "how did you find this place, it's so beautiful!" Given that I had booked Twin Oaks back in April 2012, by the time June 2013 rolled around, they had made so many upgrades & added awesome improvements that it literally took my breath away. Chandeliers galore, fountains, gardens, upgraded bathrooms, seating area for cocktail hour etc, I was very pleased.

The staff are all great, from the very first meeting to the final wedding day, they are very accommodating & informative. Pretty much everything is taken care of for you, the binder they provide brides with gives you all the info you need & a wonderful time-line. Julie & Megan were always favorites of mine but on my wedding day Elise & the rest of the staff def went above & beyond. From the time we arrived at the venue to the end of the night, someone was always there to help me. I cannot say thank you enough to them.

I highly recommend this venue to couples looking for a magical but all inclusive venue. The setting is perfect, the staff takes care of it all for you so you can enjoy your day, my guests all loved the food, and the vendors they recommended to us were also amazing. I was so sad when my wedding was over because all my guests had so much fun including me & my husband, it was such an amazing day that none of us will ever forget.

I had only 6 months to plan my wedding. Everything went very smoothly with Twin Oaks once we decided it was the place. The staff are responsive, got back to my questions timely. They provided a packet of timeline which helped me stay organized and helped me stay on top of my wedding planning. They are very experienced at what they do. Not to mention so pleasant to work with.
Our wedding turned out to be perfect. Our wedding was on the hottest day of the summer but it was still perfect. The event coordinator helped move along the event pleasantly and timely. A job very well done.
