    We had the pleasure of hosting our wedding at White Oaks this past September. Although we knew from the start that this was our venue choice, the staff and customer service excellence reinforced our decision. Jennica is amazing at what she does, and made the entire planning process stress free and enjoyable. We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for 3 night during our wedding weekend, and were spoiled the whole time. Every single staff member made us feel so special. From the ladies at the spa who made the night-before so relaxing, to the concierge who helped with any questions, to the staff at the front desk who were friendly and courteous. No details were overlooked. The day-of staff made our day run without a hitch, and Carlos in particular made our reception so stress free and seemed to be everywhere at once. All of our guests cannot say enough for the delicious meal, the beautiful ballroom and the amazing wait & bar staff! Thank you for giving us the most magical day of our lives!!

    Amazing experience planning a COVID wedding

    My husband and I got married at White Oaks June 26, 2021 - so we had a COVID wedding. Jennica and the staff were amazing beyond belief! They were flexible and accommodating to the insane, always changing rules and regulations - and they were always up to date with what was allowed and if they were unsure, they would find out. On the wedding day, Jennica helped make sure everyone was in place, all the vendors knew where to go, that my small DIY decor was set, and provided us with lots of heads up with different elements so we knew what to expect. They made planning easy by providing a list of local vendors, who are all lovely people and it was great they already knew the space. They helped with sending us resources and other vendors suggestions when we wanted to explore different options too! It always felt like they were working just as hard (if not more) as us to try to bring the day together.

    We originally planned to have our wedding indoors in Studio 10/11, but because of restrictions, we chose to move it outdoors into the garden circle to allow for more guests and avoid wedding pictures with masks. We made that decision less than a month before our wedding date! And Jennica helped with finding as many options and was flexible with using the available spaces so I could still have the day I wanted.

    We rented a hexagon tent (45ft) to protect us against the rain that was predicted. It fit perfectly in the gardens. The ceremony was held there, and then Jennica and the team flipped it to become our reception space. Because of the restrictions, we had a hybrid wedding - where we had a small number of guests in person and others joining us online. Encore, who is White Oak’s internal AV/Event team set us up with our own personal live stream link, handled all the music and provided us with proper mics/equipment so that those joining us on the stream could hear everything perfectly.

    The food was fantastic (the butternut squash soup is AMAZING) and there’s a lot of great indoor and outdoor spaces to take pictures. I was so impressed with how kind the staff were all around the hotel and we only heard praises from our guests.

    The Luxury White Oaks Suite is a MUST for the bride - make sure you book that! There is only one room of its kind. The room is a beautiful grey and white room with lots of space for getting ready. Super cute for photos as well and double bathrooms which is also helpful for a bridal party.

    White Oaks was amazing and I would recommend the venue to anyone!

    October Wedding 2020

    We had our wedding and stayed overnight at the hotel and had an amazing experience. White Oaks was professional, respectful, organized and put guests first. We felt valued and had an amazing wedding and hotel experience. Our expectations were met (during covid too) over and beyond what we expected. We had the most beautiful and prefect day. Jennica was great to work with and everything went so smoothly! Thank you!!!

    Couldn't have chosen a better venue!

    I am Chinese-Canadian and my husband is Tanzanian-Gujarati-Canadian. Needless to say, there was a diverse set of needs for our wedding! We met with Alicia, our venue coordinator, over a year ago and settled on White Oaks purely because of her sincerity, meticulousness and overall awesome personality; she was the #1 selling point. She was very helpful and accommodating throughout our planning process despite our varied needs. I actually cannot express in this post how amazing Alicia is - she really made my dream wedding come true!!! We hosted four events at White Oaks over the weekend: our rehearsal dinner, an Indian sangeet, a secular wedding ceremony and a wedding reception (with a Chinese tea ceremony!) Alicia guided us throughout every event, making sure everything was done just right and we stayed on time. I do also have to point out another spectacular human who also added an extra +++ to every party: Achille. Achille is honestly the best wait staff / bar tender I have ever met. He began his time with us right from the start at the rehearsal dinner all the way through to the wedding reception. His drinks are delicious but above all he just has the most amazing energy. By the end of the night everyone was on a first name basis with Achille. We stayed over at White Oaks for four nights and the overall customer service is unparalleled - every single person working in this facility is extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, with all the wedding festivities I did not have a chance to really enjoy the amenities! I guess I'll just have to come back :) Thank you so much to the White Oaks team especially Alicia, Jennica and Achille for making our wedding the best wedding I've ever been to!
