Plantation Oaks Farms is located north of downtown Jacksonville in Callahan, Florida. If you’re looking for a rustic wedding venue that has gorgeous trees filled with Spanish Moss, this is your place. Plantation Oaks Farms has everything you could want in an indoor and outdoor rustic wedding venue. The outdoor ceremony location has a pavered walkway so guests, family, bridal party, and couple have easy access to the seating. The giant oak trees provide a gorgeous, southern style backdrop for the ceremony and for picture opportunities.
Inside the reception space, the windows allow a view of the property and natural light. Additionally, the entire barn is air conditioned. AC is always a concern in Florida and Plantation Oaks Farms has relieved that worry for every event. Additionally inside the barn, the permanent bar provides an anchor point, but the remaining square footage is flexible. With your planner and the venue owner, you can create exactly what you want your floor plan to be.
For getting ready, the groom and groomsmen have a room filled with all the things men usually like – tv for catching the games, a pool table, and a fridge. In the new bridal suite, every detail is beautiful. The chandeliers, mirrors and lighting for makeup artists, wall color, and space are perfect for a bride and bridesmaids getting ready. The space allows the women to get comfortable for the day, eat, hang their dresses, and never have to worry about running into one of the men.
Plantation Oaks Farms Wedding Pictures
For this bride and groom’s wedding, they did take advantage of the getting ready rooms. That makes it very easy for spend time with both sides of the bridal party. Before I started with their pictures of the couple, I became with the details pieces. Carla Freeman Urff, owner of Event Decor and More by Carla did an amazing job pulling all of the details together. Staci Reid, owner of SPR Events, did all the beautiful florals for the day. Nic Studios did an amazing job making an already beautiful group of women even more gorgeous.
The vision for this wedding was a fairytale. They certainly achieved that with the gorgeous reception setup, their center pieces, and the giant book made by the groom’s sister. You’ll have to see the picture below to appreciate all of her hard work. However, the thing that stands out to me the most about this wedding is the couple. They have been so kind and gracious. They’re the couple that the rain could have poured down on their ceremony and they would have taken it in stride. It seems like they handle life as it comes with grace and kindness. It was such a privilege to join them!
