White House Mansion .... one terrific venue!Reviewed on 10/31/2014
PARTY HOST....I had the pleasure of utilizingThe White House Mansion as a venue for hosting a PhD graduation party. HOSTING required that I have food, spirits, music, flowers, and guests! I arranged to meet Julia in order to have numerous questions answered and direction for managing the party. She was so fun to work with as she had several ideas to bring my vision to fruition! The house was clean, neat and ready for our decorations when we arrived for set up. Julia attended the evening, assisting with plate retrieval, directions, and questions; she was a delight! Food and visiting occurred in the east room with the west location saved for music and dancing. Fun, family, and friends...one terrific evening! Thank you, White House Mansion, for beautiful memories!
Great venueReviewed on 5/03/2014 Charles S
White House Mansion- First, let me start with saying the location is nice and remote, tucked away in a secluded area in Jenks, Oklahoma. The property itself is very elegant and classic. When having our wedding there we most enjoyed the timelessness of the venue and how it could be dressed up or dressed down and still be classy. We had other venues in mind however after meeting the property’s owner Julia we could no longer look anywhere else. Julia went out of her way to make this one of the happiest days of our lives. During the ceremony Julia worked tirelessly to make sure things were working correctly and done in an orderly manner. Before the ceremony she kept in touch to let us know how things for our special night were progressing. The location is great, the staff is helpful, Julia is wonderful and the cost is flexible. I highly recommend having your event with White House Mansion.
GreatReviewed on 7/14/2013 Melanie B
Loved that the venue was perfect for the ceremony and reception. They allowed open catering and were so helpful. The venue is beautiful.
Karen and Julia are the bests hosts anyone could ask for. Their hospitality is first rate & they repeatedly went out of their way to make our event a success. This was our second year hosting a masquerade ball for 200 people at the White House Mansion, and the venue is quickly becoming a crowd favorite. We will certainly be back next year..
We had our New Year's Eve wedding at the White House Mansion. The location is perfect since it is in the city limits with nearby highway access and is close to hotels, restaurants, and nearby shopping. The prices for the venue are very reasonable and they are willing to help make sure that you get everything that you want and need. The owners are extremely helpful with answering questions and even stuck around on the actual wedding day to help then too. Overall, the venue is beautiful and the owner helped make sure that things ran very smoothly for us and that guests, family, and wedding party were all happy.
White House Mansion was everything we were searching for. From the picture perfect grounds, to the perfectly decorated rooms. Julia was a delight to work with, and incredibly helpful. She worked tirelessly to make sure we had the perfect night. I cannot recommend the White House Mansion enough!
My daughter was married at the White House Mansion on 10-26-2016. The cost of the venue was affordable. The Mansion provides a very charming and romantic atmosphere. Everything ran smoothly. The staff was very helpful from the beginning to the end. We are very pleased with our experience and highly recommend the White House Mansion.
My granddaughter was married at the White House Mansion last weekend. I was very impressed with the Mansion and the grounds. It was a wonderful place to have a wedding. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Mansion is beautiful. The outside lighting helps provide a very romantic setting. The entire experience was perfect.
My cousin got married & had her reception and dance at the white house. What an incredible venue & incredible staff! I highly recommend!
White House mansion was the perfect venue for my daughters reception! Definately happy with our choice! Guest count was around 225 and the flow is great for a large crowd. Julia and her staff were very helpful from the beginning of the process to the very end of the reception!
My niece was married here last weekend. She has been dreaming of being married here since she was a little girl. I am proud to say that all of her dreams came true. Julia and the staff were so helpful. The mansion was perfect and all our needs were met. We had a wonderful experience
The White House Mansion is a beautiful venue. It was perfect for our outdoor, evening wedding. Julia and Karen were very helpful in making the event run smoothly including extra touches on the decorations like pearls and vases to match the classic vibe of the event. The White House Mansion provides suggestions for vendors that know the location well , but they are flexible enough to let you choose your own that are not on the list (I included a vocalist for the ceremony). I used some of their suggestions and I was overwhelmed with the result. I didn't have to worry because Julia and Karen took care of coordinating, and scheduling with the various vendors. I had a plenty of room and privacy to get ready at the mansion, and the hair and makeup pics turned out flawless. Everywhere you look inside or outside are perfect settings for pictures. I am very grateful that I happened upon the White House Mansion; it was picturesque and stress free!
Julia was very thorough and helpful with suggestions on how to make things run smoothly! Beautiful venue!
The White House Mansion's owner Julia and Karen, day of planner, helped make my daughter and new son-in-law's wedding day absolutely perfect. The White House mansion setting is just lovely, and on May 21 we were able to have a comfortable evening ceremony outdoors, though if the weather had turned iffy, it would have been a quick transition to a beautiful indoor space. We used nearly all vendors recommended by White House Mansion, and they didn't disappoint. Our bride and groom wanted a small wedding of mainly family members, keeping the total number just under 50. The White House was a cozy, comfortable venue for our casual group including several babies and toddlers. Once we arrived with the bride and some of the reception decorations, Julia, Karen, and staff took over and--having listened carefully to the bride & groom's design ideas--set everything up perfectly. It was like magical elves took over! As mother of the bride, I thought I'd be stressed over the details, but that was not the case. Even I was able to relax and truly enjoy the celebration, and I'm personally so very thankful for that. All spaces inside and outside were aesthetically pleasing and also quite practical. We could have had 5-6 times as many guests, and the venue would have accommodated that size group well, too. The flowers were by Flowergirls of Tulsa, photography by Epic, music and sound system by DJ Connections. Bartender and servers were provided as part of the White House staff. Andolini's on Cherry Street catered pizza, pasta, and salad, while Merritt's delivered the cakes. Equipment rentals (china, crystal, flatware, linens) were mainly from ABCO Rentals, though Flowergirls provided table runners and reception chair decorative ties. The wedding colors were pink and peach with navy accents, all of which worked well for the setting and the month of May. Because we had some grandparents and others with mobility issues, we were happy to find a venue with parking close at hand that would accommodate both the wedding ceremony and the reception. Several guests mentioned appreciating the accessibility afforded by a ramp entrance. Our photographs remind us again and again how happy the wedding day was and how glad we are to have booked at the White House mansion. It gave us everything we wanted and more, including an outdoor ceremony, an indoor reception with dancing and an open bar, a lovely and comfortable dressing suite, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The house itself photographs very well, and the way it is lighted at night makes it even more stunning. We considered several Tulsa area venues, but we know the White House Mansion was just right for our family. The bride and groom thanked us (bride's parents) for making their wedding day perfect. It doesn't get better than that!
What a beautiful venue. Would definitely recommend!
Julia helped make the night. Everything went so smoothly! I couldn't have asked for a better night!
Everything was awesome! It's a beautiful venue, and reasonably priced compared to others in the area. Julia and Karen made sure everything went super smoothly. I definitely recommend!
Very nice old house, had a great experience. Chairs need to be updated though had a guest set down and the chair broke.
Absolutely amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better day!
Julia and her staff go above and beyond to make sure the day is perfect! The house is charming and is filled with pieces of Tulsa': history. If I was getting married again, I would get married here.
My daughter was married here on May 13th of this year. Julia and Karen were so sweet and helpful in every way. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant, hassle free experience! Every thing went so smooth and the venue is beautiful inside and out! I highly recommend the White House Mansion!
Julia and staff are so helpful. They run a super tight ship so that your day runs flawlessly. She kept in touch with me all year and our day turned out wonderfully. We didn't even need many decorations because the venue is so naturally beautiful.
I had my daughter's wedding at there. It was wonderful, Julia was so helpful. I found out later that that another wedding had been booked for the following day. I never would have know by the way we where treated. The whole facility was devoted to making my daughters wedding the best wedding ever.
We had our wedding at White House Mansion in September this year and I couldn't have imagined it being any more perfect. Julia is so sweet, and also so knowledgeable when it comes to wedding planning. Our big day ran so smoothly thanks to Julia and the staff at White House Mansion. The venue is so beautiful. Our guests all had a great time and many complimented on what a great venue we picked. I am so happy with our choice to use White House Mansion and I would recommend this venue to everyone else planning their wedding too!
A charming facility with so much character. The staff was do helpful and made my daughters wedding stress free and perfect! Julia takes care if the little detsils that make everything run smoothly! We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate the happiest day of our lives!
