LaKota Oaks

Weddings. And Beyond.

66 acres of stunning scenery. Spectacular venues. Extraordinary cuisine. Impeccable attention to detail. LaKota Oaks™ is the ideal venue for your most special day – from dream wedding and milestone birthday to golden anniversary.

Tying the Knot,
in Style

When it comes to wedding venues, there’s a reason LaKota Oaks™ was voted “Best of Weddings” in 2018 & 2019 by The Knot, and earned a Couples Choice Award by WeddingWire – several reasons. And they all have to do with an unbeatable combination of tranquil setting, hassle-free planning, and a staff-wide commitment to creating the most perfect, most memorable weddings and events possible.



Weddings are just
the Beginning

We enjoy making all sorts of special occasions more special. Anniversaries are recognized with elegance and flair. Our holiday parties are talked about for years. And bar/bat mitzvahs here become grand affairs. From casual dining to full service, we can customize your event, assist with decorations and entertainment, and help you plan each and every step.

It's All in the Details

Our experienced wedding specialists will work closely with you to plan and orchestrate every detail for an unforgettable celebration. Every flower in place, every dish meticulously prepared, every guest impressed beyond their expectations. Your job is to enjoy the magic of the moment – our job is to provide a wedding venue that’s both seamless and effortless. 

Mother Nature is
Always Invited

LaKota Oaks™ wedding venues offer so many ways to celebrate in picturesque nature – outdoor terraces, wide green lawns, pond-side settings, peaceful walking paths. Exceptional photo ops abound, in every season.

Living Large: Our
Ferndale Ballroom

For brides who want to celebrate in grand style, our 4,200 square-foot Ferndale Ballroom is one wedding hall that will comfortably accommodate elegant dining – and dancing – for up to 200. We give you a choice of smaller ballrooms as well, but for weddings there’s nothing quite like the Ferndale.

A Range of Ballroom Event Space to Choose From



Make it Yours

Intimate gathering or major event, all of our wedding venues can be transformed with custom lighting, linens, and furnishings. Simply tell us what would help make YOUR event more unique – our staff works with wedding planners, photographers, florists and caterers we trust, to help make it all happen. 

Catering to Your
Every Need

We’ve all attended weddings and wedding receptions – the cuisine, of course, plays a key role. It should be every bit as memorable as the occasion itself, so we work hard to customize a delectable menu that will delight your guests with flavorful dishes created with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. See a few sample menus here.



All the Events
Surrounding Your
Big Event

Naturally, we can help you plan and execute the ultimate wedding ceremony – but don’t forget we’re also here to help arrange all the details of your wedding rehearsal, wedding reception, and any other party or gathering connected to your big day.


Inquire About an Event

The best way to find out that LaKota Oaks is right for you is to schedule a site tour of our facility.  I will walk you through our venue, including guest rooms and bridal suite,  inside and outside spaces for your ceremony and cocktail hour, our ballroom for dinner and dancing and your after party in our “1904” bar. Visualize your wedding and share what you’ve got in mind for your Best Day Ever.
