Ironoaks Country Clubs
Our wedding at Oakwood was everything we hoped it would be. The facility is beautiful and the ballroom looked very elegant. The staff was professional at all times. Robin Hazeltine is the event planner at Oakwood and was a pleasure to work with. She helped me in many ways to plan my wedding and also recommended several vendors of which I did hire. We both would highly recommend Oakwood and Robin for any event.
My daughter's wedding was held at Iron Oaks several days ago. We could not be more pleased. The facility is beautiful all by itself, but everything looked even more so on wedding day. Robyn was so helpful and kept everything running smoothly. The food and service was fantastic and the prices for everything are very reasonable. This venue is by far the best value in the Valley!
Iron Oaks was by far the most amazing place to have my wedding. When I walked into the country club on my wedding day I was in awe. Everything looked so beautiful. It was everything I could have asked for and everyone kept commenting on how pretty everything looked. The staff did everything. All the stress was taken off of me and I got to enjoy my wedding day. All I had to do was make sure all of my vendors arrived on time and all of my items were delivered the day before. I could not have asked for anything better. The wedding coordinator, Robyn, was the best. She was extremely helpful not only in helping me plan my wedding from across the country but also in making the day run smooth. I highly recommend Iron Oaks to any bride that wants the perfect wedding. Thank You Robyn!
My daughter had the most beautiful and elegant wedding at Ironoaks Country Club. It was a pleasure working with Robyn who was very patient and helped keep us on track with all of the decisions that needed to be made before the wedding. Everything flowed perfectly! With the beautiful surroundings, the very professional wait staff, and the awesome food we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The comments from many of our guests were that this was the best wedding that they had been to with the best food. All the food was cooked to perfection, looked amazing and was served warm. The best part is that the cost was very reasonable for what we received. We are very happy we chose Ironoaks for our daughter's wedding. We will definitely recommend this venue to everyone we know.
My husband and I were married here in April of 2012... Our ceremony was out side by the lake just before sunset, was absolutely breath taking.. There was an hour long cocktail hour with butler passed Hors d'oeuvres: Mini Beef wellington, Imported cheese accompanied by season fruits & crackers and Italian stuffed mushroom caps and a player piano to complete the elegant atmosphere. We then moved into the grand Ballroom where the Buffet dinner was served and enjoyed.. Our full menu included: Asian, Caesar and Tomato and Mozzarella salads, Chicken Marsala, Jumbo prawns stuffed with Crab & labster, and a Prime Rib Carving station, Grilled vegetables as well as vegetable Ratatouille, Wild mushroom rice pilaf and garlic mashed potatoes.... which is still raved about to this day...The staff was so helpful and attentive, checking on the comfort and needs of all that attended.... At the end of the evening the catering staff was very helpful in making sure everything was collected and boxed up for a later pick up so that we could continue our celebration... Robyn Hazeltine was the key to the success of my wedding dreams and made sure that everything was as I wish.... She was phenomenal at decorating the candy table as well as organizing the entire event...
We had our wedding and reception at the Oakwood Country club this past March. It was supposed to be an outdoor ceremony, however it rained so we moved it inside. The crew was extremely nice and flexible; very professional as well. For all of the planning, we worked with Robyn who was great! We had no clue what we were doing but she stayed calm and walked us through each detail. We met numerous times, sometimes for just 5 minutes to calm my nerves! She was great! The only complaint I had over the ENTIRE event is so minor- we had asked for floor length table clothes, but the short ones were on the set tables when we walked into the hall. Other than that MINOR detail, everything went perfectly well. Everyone had the best time and we definitely would recommend this vendor to our family and friends. It was beautiful.
Robyn was flexible and accommodating, she provided all the options to make our wedding day special. We had a blast!!! We utilized various rooms throughout the facility, the library for the Ketubah signing and for the boys to get dressed, the foyer for welcome signage and information, the small party room for the bridal suite, hallway and player piano for cocktail hour, large ballroom for the party and the patio for the ceremony. The boys didn't end up using the billiard room but could have if they were up for it. If you're looking for a venue with lots of space to spread out, you've come to the right place.
Of course as all weddings have a few hiccups, a few things slipped through the cracks. Robyn left the wedding early without notifying the bride and the bride's parents. New person in charge forgot to do the coffee and tea service, bride's father had to go into the kitchen to request the service. The bar tender left his station at some point, leaving the guests to pour their own wine and pump their own beer. Nobody from the staff wad ready to cut the cake at the scheduled time, or even bring us a knife so we could get started cutting the cake.
The venue is beautiful, modern and doesn't require a whole lot of decorations or flowers. The magnificent views from the patio keep your eyes fixed on the breathtaking scenery. There is a mister system which worked great for a May wedding. We turned off the water feature in the lake so as not to prevent anyone with a hearing loss from hearing the ceremony or creating feedback during the taping of the ceremony. It also gets windy on the patio, ensure your canopy, runner, flowers, etc are tied down so they don't go anywhere. The cocktail hour and party room were exquisite! The room sparkled, everything looked lavish and classy. We used the big projector for our wedding video and had more than enough dance floor for 160 people to dance to Hava Negila.
All in all it was an amazing experience!!!!
Vendor response to review
I agree that there was a lack of coffee service and tea being served quickly after dinner and that is not acceptable. The service of coffee and tea should immediately follow dinner service and be conducted multiple times throughout the evening after that point and upon request.
Our bar is only unattended during a time when the bartender has to step away to pickup additional supplies and there is nobody available to pickup what is needed. At no time is it permissible for guests to pour their own beverages and be behind the bar. I cannot speak to why guests would have been behind the bar during that time.
Ironoaks Country Club in Sun Lakes is wonderful facility for all types of social gatherings from private parties to weddings. Robyn and her staff are great to work with, very pleasant and professional. The facility is beautiful with a ceremony set-up next to a small lake (great for pictures) and the banquet room is large enough to accommodate a large group of guests (or can be divided up for a more intimate event.) Ironoaks is an example to other event venues of how things should be done. It is one of our favorite places to perform at. If you are looking for beautiful facility with a great staff to hold your next event, Ironoaks Country Club should be the place that you start.
