    Fantastic Tour of Venue

    The people that work here are amazingly kind. I was so impressed with how considerate they were, as I have a bit of a disability and walk with a cane.
    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.

    Thank you for your kind words. We truly look forward to hosting your wedding at White Oaks next summer!

    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!!

    15/10 would recommend

    We looked at almost all of the Niagara wedding venues and are SO HAPPY we chose White Oaks. From the location, food, drinks, quality of service, attention to detail and everything in between, we truly felt that White Oaks was a perfect fit 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.

    Valerie and Brandon

    White Oaks Resort & Spa's reply:

    Thank you for sharing your experience, and for your kind words! It was truly a pleasure working with you, and Brandon!

    From those photos, I can't agree enough that the tent was a great decision. I am happy everything came together SO beautifully!

    We look forward to welcoming you, and Brandon back in the future! We wish you all the best of health and happiness!

    All the best,
    Jennica Hofman

    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!

    White Oaks Resort has something unique and special to offer brides and grooms: a forum to host a spectacular and flawless multi-cultural wedding. Our May 2017 wedding included 200+ guests for a Hindu ceremony in the morning, lunch, Christian ceremony in the evening followed by a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. Ambitious to say the least! The facilities and staff at White Oaks Resort came together to embrace this challenge which allowed our guests to fully experience both of our cultures.
    The venue has so many banquet rooms and options for ceremony space. We were able to use the gardens, upstairs banquet room, downstairs grand event space and foyer to meet all of our needs. White Oaks acted as a “one-stop-shop” for our whole day which significantly reduced our stress and allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding. We had a lot of out of town guests so having the hotel available was great for them and also allowed guests to change easily between ceremonies (including the bride and groom!). White Oaks also permits outside catering of Indian food (for a service fee) and we were able to use Moksha in Niagara Falls to make a delicious lunch buffet enjoyed by all.
    HUGE thank you to the staff at White Oaks for not only what they did to make our wedding flawless but how they did it. All weddings require diligent coordination of décor, flowers, catering etc. but this is doubled for a multi-cultural wedding where we had two florists, two decorators etc. Special shout-out to Jennica for staying 100% on top of all these little details to make sure everything went according to plan. Thank you to Jennica, Claire and Tina for being responsive, attentive and compassionate while managing such a complex and constantly changing event. If you are looking for a site to host a large, multi-cultural wedding, you have the “A” team at White Oaks Resort!

    Incredible

    We had our wedding at White Oaks on August 6, 2021. We went through planning 3 different weddings on 3 different dates thanks to COVID, and Jennica and the White Oaks team were flexible and helpful throughout the entire process. We had the most beautiful reception under their tent outside on the patio and they created a dance floor for us, just inside the doors to really create a space that flowed and made everything feel connected.

    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!

    White Oaks Resort & Spa's reply:

    Thank you for the great review and for sharing your special day with us. Three time's the charm, right? I am happy everything came together beautifully! We wish you all the best of health and happiness!

    Wedding during a pandemic and keeping everyone safe

    My husband and I have nothing but amazing things to say about White Oaks. It has always been one of my favourite places, and after having my bridal shower and our wedding reception here during the pandemic... they still don't disappoint. With the constant changes of rules during the pandemic, and our goal to keep everyone safe, we changed our wedding venue to White Oaks 3 days before the reception. They pulled everything together seamlessly and so many guest said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. With their covid rules in place, our guests were kept happily and safely outside. We can't thank White Oaks enough!
