I honestly don't know where to start. Leslie Santiago has put down herself in SO many ways. I am the most indecisive and anxious person ever and I can't count how many times she just told me to breath and enjoy this part of planning. She was always available for me when I had... Read More one of my panic moments. She had everything under control from the very beginning and everything went so smoothly for us. I don't know how many times she said "morgan, I got this-you are the bride don't worry about this" she took so much into her hands and let me be the bride and enjoy my day. She has a job to do and she gets it done with ease. I wish I could relive this night over and over again. I am so sad it's over but I'm glad that we can truly say our night was perfect because of how awesome Leslie is. The food was amazing, the decor that they set up was perfect and just Leslie's presence makes everything better. Thank you to the Oaks for giving me and my HUSBAND the wedding of our dreams! We also had our rehearsal dinner there and I have nothing but good things to say about that as well!

My husband and I could not have had a more perfect day. Leslie is amazing to work with. From the beginning she made it clear that her main goal was to take care of us and she did just that. Kerry, too, was so sweet and easy to work with. One example of how they go above and...

Additionally, I brought in decorations and centerpieces and they set everything up beautifully! Adam and I had ideas that Leslie was able to bring to life and look better than imagined. The rest of the staff was friendly, helpful, and fantastic. The food was superb and Leslie made sure that Adam and I were actually able to sit down and eat (something I have heard is a luxury for most brides and grooms). The picturesque venue is perfect for indoor and outdoor. We chose The Oaks knowing that if it rained we would be happy no matter where the ceremony took place...I cannot tell you how happy I was with that decision. When it started raining a few hours before the ceremony, I did not feel one bit of stress. At The Oaks, they truly are amazing and talented at what they do and I never worried for a minute what it would look like that day or how the day would go. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

After I got engaged it was time to look for a venue. I went on the knot and the first place I wanted to check out with my fiance was The Oaks. We went to our meeting and instantly fell in love with the venue, we did go look at about 15 other places all over Massachusetts & New... Read More Hampshire. But always knew it was going to be at The Oaks, everything was beautiful from the views, the outside seating area, and the inside of the venue. We started our journey almost a year and a half ago with Leslie who answered every email I sent her no matter how silly of a question it was. I loved how we got to have a private taste test for the dinner, we also got to bring our moms along. Some places only did a tasting a few times a year, I liked how they kept everything all about you. Towards the end Leslie went on to another opportunity and we were left in good hands with Lauren. At first I was alittle nervous but she made sure everything was going to be ok. Then the big day came and I could not have asked for a better day. Lauren was wonderful, she made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, even saving me a few times to keep the night on track. Everyone loved the food, said it was the best food at a wedding they ever had! The staff was wonderful if anyone needed something they were right there to help them out. The topper of the night was the fireworks they offer, I think it was better than a fourth of July display. It just added that something special to our wedding. I can not thank the staff at The Oaks enough for such a smooth, stress free day. I would recommend them for any event you have planned you will not be disappointed.

To say our day was perfect is an understatement and we owe every ounce of praise and compliment we received about our wedding to... Read More Leslie. Leslie made sure to dot every "i" and cross every "t" to ensure a smooth ceremony and reception. From our very first meeting with Leslie, we knew we were in good hands- an experienced and knowledgeable coordinator, she was so helpful and willing to answer any and all of our questions leading up to the big day. A lot of our planning was done during the week, so I would send emails off to Leslie and always received a speedy reply back with helpful and honest feedback. Our ceremony was held outdoors at The Oaks overlooking the beautiful, perfectly manicured lawns. We were fortunate enough to have a comfortably sunny and warm September afternoon and the area was perfect for our group of about 115 people. My husband's family has a tradition of building and decorating an arch and Leslie was amazing for letting us bring the arch over prior to the wedding day and even offered to help keep flowers cool. Following our ceremony, cocktail hour was held both indoors and outdoors- the Oaks has beautiful and picturesque property, our wedding photos look like a fake background! It's so stunning and our guests were so pleased with the outdoor bar/patio! The interior of the Grandview Ballroom is everything I could have wanted. It's completely open and perfect for a reception of our size- we had a mixed number of round tables (people were seated very comfortably at up to 12 people per table!) and also has an indoor bar which contained excellent drink variety! The dance floor was also spacious and left plenty of room for our guests to celebrate :) It felt perfectly open and was so wonderful to see everyone in the room from our sweetheart table. Among every detail that makes The Oaks a perfect wedding venue, they offer a package (at a very reasonable price) for a fireworks display to wow your guests at the reception! Leslie helped do all the coordinating and suggested we keep it a secret to guests- which we did and are so thankful for, because everyone was completely blown away! I've never been to a wedding that had a fireworks display and we were so happy to be the first for many of our guests! It was so much fun to secretly hop into a golf cart (Leslie drove us down!) and head down to the green for a front row view- simply stunning, talk about a fairytale wedding!! My fiancé and I did our wedding ourselves and never could have pulled this off without the help and support of Leslie Santiago. Being newly engaged and starting your venue touring can be so overwhelming- we must have looked at 5 or 6 venues in New England, and we just kept coming back to the Oaks- it's beautiful in every season (we saw it for the first time covered in snow and ice and still fell in love) and also for Leslie who we knew would have our backs and take good care of us, which she certainly did. The entire staff for the evening was wonderful and kind to me and my fiancee, along with our families, doing everything they could to make us feel comfortable and ensure we were having the best day ever :) Make sure you take time to check out The Oaks as you begin your quest for the perfect wedding venue! Your mind will be made the second you step into Leslie's office! THANK YOU LESLIE!! :)
