If I could give The Oakley & the staff 10/5 I would!!! First of all, the venue & the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. One visit to The Oakley and you will fall in love. The groomsmen got ready at the estate on Saturday morning, which worked out so well. The bridesmaids got ready in the bridal suite in the venue, which is so beautiful! Secondly, Alicia, Cathy, & Ken of The Oakley are a dream team. They went above and beyond for us all throughout the planning process and the weekend of our wedding. They were always willing to meet with us and so patient with our endless questions! Our wedding turned out better than we could have ever hoped! I would recommend The Oakley to everyone!!! The Oakley & the staff have a place in our hearts forever!! We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Thank you thank you thank you for making our wedding dreams come true! Alicia was an absolute dream to work with. She was always so kind, fun, and accommodating. Her and Cathy were always willing to help out wherever need be, especially in the prep work and day of troubleshooting last minute things that came up. I cannot say enough how beautiful the venue is. It was rustic and peaceful and romantic and airy and just so wonderful. It was so nice having the wedding and reception at the same location so everyone could truly sit back and relax at the wedding, cocktail hour, and reception. Guests were all over inside and outside, playing games, down by the pond, sitting by the fire, and visiting the horses. People felt like they truly got to relax and enjoy the day rather than running around driving to different locations for different parts of the day. It was so magical and everyone STILL keeps complimenting the wedding and how beautiful the venue was! I also can’t say enough about how convenient it was to get ready in the bridal suite the morning of. All the girls were at the venue and got to hang out and it allowed us more time to get photos rather than scramble to be somewhere else at a certain time. The guys got ready in the lower level of the estate the day of and had a great time playing cards and pool and just being guys. Everything about our wedding flowed so smoothly and was SO beautiful I would choose the Oakley over and over again! Best day ever thanks to the best venue and best staff ever!!!

Our wedding was wonderful! The venue is perfect for an outdoor and indoor experience. Alicia helps with so much and made our wedding day stress-free. We had plenty of time to setup and I loved that we had the option to take-down the next day and not the night of our wedding.

What an amazing venue!! Their 40 acres is the most peaceful, relaxing, and beautiful venue we’ve ever seen. Their “horse barn” transformation is stunning!! Wood beam ceiling, leather chandeliers, a beautiful bar that you can use inside and outside! Driving up through the gates and white picket fencing!!

We had our wedding at The Oakley at the end of September and we could not be happier with our decision. We met Alicia and the McKays when The Oakley was still a functioning barn and immediately knew we needed to book with them. Alicia and the McKay family went above and beyond from the start to make sure our wedding was perfect. Alicia and the entire family made sure our wedding was perfect and made sure everything went smoothly. The venue looked amazing on its own- other than our tables we didn’t have to worry about any additional decorations. The Oakley itself and the surrounding farm made for an amazing setting. Being able to utilize the outdoor space for cocktail hour and throughout the night made it so much more unique for our guests. We received compliments from our guests all night, and continuing today, about how amazing and unique the venue was. We would absolutely recommend The Oakley to anyone- it made our wedding day so perfect!

The Oakley Events hosted my wedding just a few days ago. My husband and I planned our wedding in a short time frame and the McKays were nothing short of amazing. They helped us any and every way they could. The venue and property itself is just beyond gorgeous. Every guest was amazed and shocked to find such a gorgeous venue in Holly. The McKay's made sure every part of our day was perfect. If your wondering if you should book your event here....do it. You will be so glad you did! We even took our sunset pictures with their beautiful horses. I will look back on our wedding day and always be so thankful we got to choose The Oakley Events. Thank you for all you did!

I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue! The outdoor ceremony was beautiful. The indoor reception had everything we wanted and more. The bridal suite was amazing. I had a large group of girls getting ready plus our hair stylists and there was more than enough room. The co-owner and venue coordinator, Alicia, was very quick to respond to any questions I had and also had a lot of helpful recommendations. I was hoping to get some sunset pictures on their land and she even went as far as taking us out there on their golf cart so we didn’t have to walk and showed us the perfect spot. They’re super friendly and very organized! The entire day went by so smoothly.

I would like to thank the Oakley and the McKay family for making our day so special! We were so extremely lucky to be the first wedding to take place at the Oakley and I am so glad that we were! The venue is absolutely stunning!!! My husband and I live in England so we had to do most of our planning from overseas. Alicia did an amazing job coordinating with us and even attending some of our potential vendor meetings. I was quite nervous planning a wedding from so far away, but Alicia made it easy and answered all my questions and concerns at the drop of a hat. The actual wedding day went above and beyond my expectations! The bridal suite is so elegant and perfect for the pre-wedding photos of the bridal party! The ceremony space was also breathtaking with a view of their pond and the endless woods in the background. The photos of the ceremony came out beautifully and just as I wanted them! The venue itself, my guests would not stop talking about!! The chandeliers and the other lighting features were definitely a big hit with our guests! It was definitely one of our favourites too! Not only that, but the indoor/outdoor bar was perfect for our cocktail hour and reception! The venue is elegant and modern and beyond breathtaking. I could go on for days talking about the venue! But honestly, the Oakley is a beautiful venue that I recommend you take a look at! However, for me, the amazing venue wasn’t the only reason why I chose this location. In addition to this gorgeous venue, I got a loving and caring family that was willing to do anything to make sure our wedding day was everything we dreamed of. That is what made me choose this venue! I am so lucky and blessed to have been able to get married at the Oakley. Thank you so much to the McKay family for making our day so special! I can’t wait to see all the lovely weddings that take place here!
