Oak Hollow Farm

Reviewed By 626reitam

This past October we held our daughter’s wedding and reception at Oak Hollow Farm, I have to say this was one of the most Beautiful weddings I have seen, many guests commented on how “Magical” or it was a real life Fairytale wedding. I highly recommend Oak Hollow for a wedding or any event. We worked with Marva Dean and she was so accommodating and helpful throughout the process. The parents, bride & groom all live out of state and she made this so easy with her suggestions and quick responses. They were married outside at the tunnel of trees, it was Breathtaking, we used the benches for our guests and three-piece wood door system at the entrance, along with an arbor. The flowers on the Arbor were stunning, thanks to Belle Bouquet Florist. The reception was inside the barn. Our talented friend Marilyn brought in table decorations and C & A Rent put up draping which made the atmosphere perfect. They definitely know what they are doing. Appetizers were served while the Amazing photographer Kayla Steade who had taken beautiful photo’s inside and all over the beautiful grounds throughout the day finished up family shots. The dinner was perfect and delicious, the catfish was outstanding. We received so many comments on how delicious the food was. The dance floor was perfect most all the guests love to dance and with our DJ Tres Wiggins, playing the best music, there was always someone on the dance floor, most of the time it was packed. The cake was exactly what our daughter envisioned and was not only pretty but also delicious, a Big Thank you to Couture Cakes. I have to say when my daughter asked my thoughts on a videographer, I told her most people watch their wedding video a time or two and then again on their anniversary for a few years (mind you videos were not what they are now when I married). I am so Happy she chose Written in Film, Josh and Tori were wonderful and the video they produced is just Spectacular. I could watch it again and again. I was a bit concerned about the “cabins” we rented at Oak Hollow Farm for the bride, bridal party & groomsmen to get ready or just hang out in until the ceremony. I really was only concerned with one of the cabins as I thought it needed to be decorated to look more “bridal” like, I felt it needed more lighting. I had purchased huge make up mirrors, lots of white draping, lights, strands of lights etc., things to make it look a little brighter and festive for a wedding. My husband and I arrived to see if we could get in one of the cabins to decorate and make some changes ourselves before the day of the wedding. Marva Dean basically said come with me, I have something to show you. Much to our surprise they worked tirelessly the week before our daughter’s wedding and transformed one of the cabins into a small Bridal suite. It was beyond what we could have accomplished and perfect. It no longer looked like a cabin at all. There were no beds, it was painted, shiplap was installed, mirrors on the wall, there was a long wooden counter, stools, a full-length mirror, a tin ceiling, wedding decorations, etc. They created a bridal suite. I almost cried I was so grateful. Our daughter was equally surprised and thrilled. Marva Dean helped us to execute the most perfect day for our daughter and son in law. The staff was spectacular with the service they provided. We were able to relax and truly enjoy the wedding and reception. Thank you to Marva Dean and the staff at Oak Hollow Farm for making our daughter’s wedding a success and a day to remember forever.

Rock Creek Golf Club

Reviewed By EllaH827 - Forsyth, United States

This is my first time playing this golf course, and I had a good experienced. There was a bag boy available upon arrival and quickly assisted me on my golf bag. The staff at the pro shop were kind of confused because I just called and booked my tee time 30 minutes prior, but got it figured out. The starter had briefly explained how the golf course was laid out, and let me played single. The golf course were well maintained, pace of play were moving along right on par, and overall I had a good experienced. Highly recommended...
