If you want your expectations exceeded, your dreams met and a unique venue then book Oak Lodge! This place is truly amazing! The views are breathtaking, the staff is incredible and the accommodations are top of the line. We cannot say enough about Matt, Robin and the rest of the Oak Lodge staff. They go above and beyond to make sure you get the wedding of your dreams. They pay attention to every detail, do the little things you do not expect. Oak Lodge is more than a wedding venue it is a destination. Where else can you get your own luxury house, a tavern, a chapel and a village to spend your wedding? All for you? If you want a wedding that you and all your guests will remember then book Oak Lodge. They gave us more than we could have ever asked for! Our guests are still saying it's the best wedding they've ever been to! We're a bit biased but we couldn't agree more!

We recently got married at Oak Lodge and on 4/28/12 and booking this as our venue was by far the best decision we made regarding the wedding. The venue is absolutely beautiful and pictures just do not do this place justice. You have to go see it, the moment you set eyes on the place you will fall in love!
This is perfect for a rustic wedding and the beauty of this venue is you do not need decorations, it is stunning by itself. The chapel was a dream to get married in and the set up of Jimberg Village is perfect for the flow of a great party. We had drinks outside the chapel for early arrivals, then the guests move to the next building, the tavern, for cocktail hour and then continue around the pathway to the Merchantile Hall for the reception. Having everything in one location was so great and our guests really loved the set up and we got so many compliments about the venue.
We also used basically all of Oak Lodge's preferred vendors and they were all great to work with and made the wedding preparations so easy. I am from DC so I did all the wedding prep via email and phone and it all worked out perfectly!
Oak Lodge, Matt specifically, was AMAZING to work with, he made the wedding planning and the day of a breeze and I had zero stress (which is what every bride wants!) Once I had booked vendors and made my decisions on the things I wanted, Matt took over and handled everything from when to arrive, set up and break down of everything so I had nothing to worry about. He also was very easy to get a hold of and always responded to emails/phone calls promptly which is also a huge plus for a bride, especially one planning a wedding remotely! He truly wants your day to be amazing and does everything possible to make it perfect.
We even had bad weather (freezing cold and rain in late April) and Oak Lodge was so well prepared, they made all our guests comfortable and warm and no one really noticed the cold and we had food and the bar set up outside. They provided patio warmers and made the entire place cozy and inviting.
I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and I have the Oak Lodge to thank for that, they are by far the most amazing venue and perfect location for a beautiful wedding.
A Very Happy Bride,

Oak Lodge truly made my dream wedding a reality. The elegant rustic feel lends the day to a relaxed yet beautiful atmosphere. Our guests were in awe and couldn't stop raving. We could not have asked for a nicer, more competent venue manager than in Matt. He was there to help every step of the way, allowing us to have a smooth, worry free wedding day as guests moved from the chapel to the tavern to the reception hall, all located at the beautiful Oak Lodge. In addition, many of my family from out of town were able to stay at Oak Lodge for the weekend, which not only gave us more time to visit with them but also gave them their own weekend family reunion. If you are looking for a rustic venue for your wedding and reception, do not hesitate - oak lodge is your perfect venue!
