Why We Like This Place

  • Ceremonies are held in the formal garden, where the bride walks down a grassy aisle framed by perfectly manicured miniature boxwood shrubs.
  • After the ceremony, guests can tour the splendor of Oatlands Historic House—or sip cocktails in the garden.
  • The Oatlands Pavilion is custom-made for receptions. Nestled in the trees, this semi-permanent tent features interior draping and sidewalls that allow views of the open fields, historic greenhouse, and mansion. Celebrations can also take place just outside the Mansion’s impressive entryway, which provides a stately backdrop for your festivities.
  • The mansion is a surprising combination of Federalist and Greek Revival style: Because construction spanned about 30 years, both types of architecture are represented.
