We cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding at Penn Oaks! We got married October 2016 and everything was just perfect. Our coordinator was Carina and she made sure everything went off without a hitch. All the decorations and details looked beautiful, the cocktail... Read More hour and food was amazing and the space overall worked so well, even for our large wedding of 220 people. We also had our ceremony on site and the outdoor gazebo space was so nice. Then our guests only had to take a few steps to the patio where we hosted our cocktail hour. It was all so convenient! Knowing that our family and friends love to dance, we opted to have the band and dance floor on the patio so there was more space for dancing. This setup worked perfectly and the dance floor was packed all night! We are still hearing from our guests how much fun they had at our wedding and this is all thanks to the team at Penn Oaks. We would highly recommend Penn Oaks for any formal functions!

Penn Oaks is amazing! My husband and I had our wedding reception there in December and it was absolutely beautiful. The food and desserts were fantastic. Carina and the rest of the staff were wonderful and made sure our day was perfect. We could ant have picked a better venue.

Penn Oaks exceeded every expectation I had for our wedding. From the actual space, to the food, and then to the people/service- everything was, “simply perfect.” On our first visit to Penn Oaks I knew it was the right venue for our wedding and reception. Our coordinator Dawn and... Read More the owner Steve went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. Not every wedding venue made us feel welcomed or relaxed. They treated us like family from the moment we walked in and continued to treat us like family throughout our wedding journey. I knew I wouldn’t get this personal attention and service at any other venue. I have food allergies and my father is handicapped. Penn Oaks worked hard to make both issues a non-issue. The day of our wedding everything went absolutely perfect. I tend to be a perfectionist so it takes a lot for me to say something was perfect. Nothing went wrong thanks to the attention to detail of Dawn and the Penn Oaks staff. The tent sparkled for our nighttime wedding and cocktail hour. Every photo looked amazing with those lights. We had a seamless transition from ceremony to cocktail hour. Cocktail hour was phenomenal due to the food, drinks, and atmosphere. We upgraded to the Freddy’s station which was a huge crowd pleasure. We had the most compliments for that station! We are huge Freddy’s fans so it made our wedding uniquely “us”! After cocktail hour ended, our guests only had to walk into the ball room for dinner and dancing. It was extremely convenient to have everything in one venue. Dinner was delicious and the portions were very generous. Lisa, our banquet manager, made sure everything ran smoothly. We had zero complaints from our guests, only numerous compliments. We had the perfect wedding thanks to the entire staff from Penn Oaks. It was the right choice for us and I know it will be the right choice for you.

This venue was PERFECT for our winter wedding. They have a 20% discount for weddings December-February and it let us be able to upgrade our package on a smaller budget. Carina was our wedding coordinator and she was responsive with the millions of questions I asked her. We... Read More had the ceremony in the heated tent, and we received compliments from everyone about how beautiful the space was. We were able to save food stations until the end of the night too that way guests could have late night munchies. The wedding party and I got ready in the bridal suite, which was huge and comfortably fit all of us and the beauticians. We were checked up on all day to make sure we didn't need anything. They really came through for us at the last minute when we saw the weather was going to be bad, and we were able to get a shuttle arranged the day before the wedding. Also, the day of, they decided to valet park the cars since the road was a little icy and it was cold. Overall, this was the most beautiful wedding I could have ever asked for, and working with Penn Oaks was very stress free. I could not have imagined a more perfect venue for my December wedding!

Picking the perfect wedding venue is very stressful – The moment I stepped into Penn Oaks I feel in love with the place. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to have my Wedding at Penn Oaks. The wedding coordinator (Dawn) and the staff made my day absolutely perfect! Dawn was... Read More amazing to work with she was extremely nice, helpful and well organized.

At first it seemed like a big choice as to where to have my wedding but I couldn't be happier that I picked Penn Oaks! They made my day absolutely perfect! I worked with Carina as my wedding coordinator and she was the best! Carina was extremely nice, organized and did anything... Read More she could to make my day special, I can't say enough nice things about her, she truly made the experience even more wonderful. The venue itself is really beautiful. If you are planning an outdoor ceremony there are great views of the golf club all around. I wanted our ceremony to be outside and unfortunately we had rain all day but the staff was so accommodating in trying to wait until the last minute to set up outside and when they couldn't, they made the covered patio just as beautiful as outside would have been, probably even more so with all of the soft up-lighting they provide, so you will definitely be covered either way! The food there is great, I have had many family and friends tell me how much they enjoyed all of the appetizers, food stations and their dinners and that they just couldn't believe how good everything was! Penn Oaks gives you a ton of food options and there packages include so much it is unbelievable! I would whole-heartedly recommend Penn Oaks to anyone getting married, they are kind, courteous, efficient and they are all genuinely happy that you picked them to share your special day with! I can't say enough good things about them and how happy I am that I picked them and I hope you do too!

My husband and I got married on August 26, 2016 at Penn Oaks where we had both our ceremony and reception and I cannot begin to explain how AMAZING it was. Our wedding coordinator was Carina and she was THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Please ask for her!!! You will not regret it. The amount... Read More of patience she had, in order to deal with me and my family was truly extraordinary. She helped made our day go so perfect. On the day of the wedding Penn Oaks' staff were so nice, welcoming and tended to our every need. No need to worry about the food either. Our guests made sure to express how tasty the food was! Our family is accustomed to Caribbean food and during our food tasting we asked the chef if they could add jerk seasoning to our plates and needless to say it was a hit!!! What I love is that Penn Oaks went out their way to make sure the food was how we wanted it to be! During cocktail hour the food would not stop coming!!! The bartenders were super nice and to top off the amazing night my husband surprised me with fireworks! Our guests kept telling us how and I quote, "It was best wedding they've been to!!!". The stress leading up to it was worth it due to the end result! I'm so happy we picked this venue and honestly wish we could re-live it again <3 Please make an appointment to visit Penn Oaks!!

The night of the wedding Lisa was there to help, and she was also very friendly and helpful. The food at our tasting was so good, it was hard to pick just 2 entrees, but we ended up choosing the Chicken Meditteranean and the Stuffed Flounder, both of which were delicious! Our cocktail hour, though my husband and I only attended for a short time, was great, and everyone raved about all of the food! Thank you Penn Oaks for helping us create the wedding of our dreams!

They even offer fireworks as a part of the package, and my father-in-law decided to splurge on it for us. It was amazing and they did a truly incredible job! Thank you so much to everyone at Penn Oaks who made our wedding day amazing!
