Finding the perfect place to do something as important as unifying your family can definitely feel daunting (no pressure, right?) But it doesn’t have to be! You already have a pretty good idea of what kind of venue you need for your dream wedding without realizing it. And, since you’re interested in Plantation Oaks Farms, I have a pretty good idea of what your vision is (hint: it’s amazing!)
Weddings held outside of the hustle and bustle of the city tend to be more relaxed, which allows my couples to reeeally enjoy their day and soak up every moment. That’s exactly the environment that Plantation Oaks Farms creates. I always prefer the weddings outside of the downtown areas because, well, the couples have more fun! Let’s dig a bit more into this amazing venue!
A working horse farm tucked in the quiet town of Callahan, Plantation Oaks Farms has a rich history with many generations pouring their hearts into this farm.
The venue is only a short 30 minutes from downtown Jacksonville, which is such a score for your friends and family! Plantation Oaks can accommodate up to 300 loved ones.
Another amazing feature is that they only allow one wedding per day. So the entire venue is private to you and your loved ones. Many weddings have multiple events per day and I just feel this is such a bonus. You don’t have to share the space, woohoo!
Both you and your fiance will have private getting ready quarters that are comfortable and (big bonus for me!) super pretty! I love going into a bridal suite that’s beautiful to photograph! Don’t you? No, just me? Okay moving on…
Another nice bonus is that couples who book their wedding here are allowed complimentary access to the property for engagement photos! If that’s something you’d like, we will make it happen! Not wanting your engagement session there (or not wanting one at all?) no worries! We will plan out your perfect spot!
“This venue was everything I wanted & more. This was the first & only venue I looked at. Amy was amazing & very helpful with anything I needed. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I knew nothing would compare to Plantation Oaks Farms.” – Elayna
“My husband always wanted a barn type wedding. I went on a search for barns. I love how beautiful the idea sounded but was worried about the actual reception being in a barn with no AC. This venue was more than we could’ve asked for. We got married outside which was beautiful and had the reception inside a building shaped barn with AC and still had a rustic feel. It was perfect. Amy (owner) was a pleasure to work with and very thorough.’ – Ashley
Hiring a professional wedding photographer you absolutely love and click with is such an important step to make sure that you can capture all the amazing moments you will have at your wedding. These photographs will act as a ticket for traveling back in time and having a look at all the beautiful memories you created with your loved ones.
I have been working as a professional photographer for over 8 years. Throughout that time I realized that the intimate moments in between the poses were the ones most cherished. My wedding work has been seen in places like The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Carolinas Magazine, Embrace Beauty Magazine, and many other leading industry publications. I’m sincerely grateful for every single one of them, and for the others yet to come. But none of that matters without the experience, the fun, and the results that everyone feels when they look back through their photographs. If you think we’d make an amazing fit contact me today and let’s chat about your wedding!
