We just recently had our wedding reception here and stayed over night in the hotel. I cannot rave enough about this place! I had the pleasure of working along side Ayah D. Who helped plan and set up my PERFECT wedding brunch! She went above and beyond for me. I could not have asked for a better coordinator. She was kind, genuine and so flexible! She never made me feel like I was annoying (which we all know brides can be from time to time) every single time I called her she answered the phone full of joy and reassured me through everything. I felt so much confidence working with her and I am already giving recommendations every time I hear the word wedding!
All of my event servers were over the top helpful and filled with joy. They were each wonderful! The event space and overall building was pristine, it was so organized and clean. During our event I rarely even saw a dish on the tables. The outdoor space was gorgeous and full of beautiful flowers and perfectly kept greenery. It was amazing for photos.
Not only were the adults treated like royalty here but every child at our function was treated with upmost respect and kindness.
The hotel staff, the concierge service, restaurant staff (LIV), spa staff and everyone in between were so wonderful. We have already booked our return and plan to celebrate every anniversary at the white oaks.
Many of the guests from our wedding also plan to return for private get aways and future functions.
If you are considering a wedding here, DO IT. You will not be disappointed.
& if you ever come across an issue they will correct it for you in an instant.
Dream wedding at White Oaks!
Once we decided to book our wedding at White Oaks, we were SO impressed with how helpful the coordinators in the Wedding Office are. Jennica was our coordinator leading up to our wedding, and is the kindest, most helpful, and knowledgable resource we could have ever asked for. She made the planning process so fun, easy, and enjoyable. Both Jennica and Ayah supported us on our actual wedding weekend, and made every event flow incredibly smoothly, and were so helpful with anything we needed.
The hotel and staff itself are also absolutely phenomenal -- I had never been to White Oaks before, but it is now my gold standard for a high-end hotel experience. The staff are beyond helpful, and made each of our guests visiting the wedding and staying at the hotel feel like it was their special day, too!
AMAZING experience with an incredible wedding coordinator and venue!
Fantastic Tour of Venue
The outdoor ceremony area is beautiful, and only steps away from the garden room which we've booked for our reception. The property is going to be perfect for so many great wedding photos.
I really believe we chose the perfect venue for our BIG day.

We can't thank White Oaks and their team enough for making our wedding planning process and day of everything we dreamed of and more. Planning a COVID wedding was filled with anxieties and uncertainties, but Jennica and her team were there for us every step of the way. We always felt heard and supported.
We pivoted our wedding from the Grand Event room to the outdoor tent and it was the best decision we could have made to keep everyone safe. Not only was it safe, it was beyond BEAUTIFUL!
In terms of food and drinks, we looked at other venues in the Niagara area (including wineries and other halls) and you can't beat White Oak's quality of food and service for the price. They also allow for customizations that fit every budget and which makes your wedding unique. If something isn't on their list or menu, just ask what can be done! Achilles delivered an amazing tasting experience for us a few months before the wedding and when it came out on the day of it was even better. All of our guests raved about the food and service.
The convenience of having our reception and ceremony all in one place was also a big plus. It ended up raining during our ceremony, but we easily pivoted to their rain room which was just as beautiful as the gardens.
We also loved the fact that all of our family and friends could stay onsite. Everyone who stayed at White Oaks that weekend had nothing but rave reviews. Highly recommend that the Bride and Groom book the Bridal Suite for their entire stay (doesn't hurt that they also comp your wedding night!).
We could go on and on about our experience, but the main thing we want to highlight is how much White Oaks made us feel important and heard for the entire year we were planning, even in the midst of other weddings and COVID. You always got a response to your questions in a timely manner and they really worked with us to customize our day exactly how we wanted it.
Jennica and your team, thank you SO so much for everything you did for us. We can't wait to spend many more celebrations at White Oaks.

Amazing experience planning a COVID wedding
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!
The food was incredible, the servers and bartenders were absolutely amazing, and everything came together in a perfectly executed vision. A million thanks to the White Oaks team for giving us the best wedding we could have possibly asked for!
