Features of the Venue


White Oaks Barn is a rustic, timber-frame building designed to seat up to 400 guests.  Inside, we have a caterer’s kitchen, full bar, bride and groom dressing rooms, floor and loft seating and center stage.  There are large men's and women's restrooms to avoid lines, as well as private restrooms in the bridal suite and groom’s room.  The barn's vaulted ceiling and loft areas provide a rustic yet elegant décor. The timber-frame structure creates a unique venue, perfect for making special memories.  The barn’s open floor plan allows for flexible seating arrangements that can accommodate a variety of occasions. Our barn features a sound system with speakers throughout the venue to ensure background music and speeches are heard by all guests.  Zoned heating and cooling allows the venue to be comfortably utilized year round while eliminating hot and cold spots.  

Outside, the venue offers several photo opportunities with country themed props and beautiful scenery. There is a large, open patio area with fire pits and lounge seating. In addition to this, our barn offers a beautiful outdoor amphitheater that overlooks our star lake. The amphitheater provides perfect location for outdoor ceremonies. The main entrance of the barn has a decorative overhang so you and your guests can remain dry during arrival in inclement weather.
