  • We met with Mandy Steen, and she was a very lovely lady. She was understanding of us being about 10 minutes late for our appointment. She was very thorough with how things play out who does what and what they provide. The place is very beautiful. I wanted an outdoor country wedding but after my fiance and I seen this church everything changed. we will be joined in the house of God and We are so excited.

  • This place is definitely worth it! Trust me when I say, there is not a prettier church for MILES. I started looking for a church almost immediately after getting engaged, and it still took me so long to find the right place. I needed a church that was big enough for 300 people, allowed us to bring in our own pastor, did not require us to take a marriage counseling-type class since we were full time students hours away, and did not require us to become members. All these requirements almost had us looking at an outdoor ceremony, because we spent months getting denied and denied at so many other churches. Oak Arbor was like a miracle! I am so happy we found it. It's almost like they were built solely for weddings! And gave me everything I needed. They have an amazing sanctuary, absolutely stunning. And private getting ready rooms for both bride and groom which allowed us to get there early and prepared. I would definitely suggest it to anyone looking. We only used them for our ceremo...

    Leah - thank you for your review. Your event was lovely and your attention to every detail made the day run smoothly. Yes, every venue has its rules and the one hour rehearsal time can seem rushed if some of the group is running behind. All in all, I am glad your had your event at Oak Arbor and I'm sure that the photos will be beautiful! All the best - Mandy

  • We planned our Michigan wedding from California, and were seeking a ceremony location that would allow non-members to use their sanctuary, preferably using our own pastor as well. Oak Arbor Church met those criteria and graciously hosted us for our wedding day. The staff were attentive and kind, giving us time for the rehearsal, pre-wedding photos, and to place simple decorations. Our pastor was comfortable and at-home in the beautiful space, plus our DJ was able to plug into their system to play our ceremony music. We love how the floor-to-ceiling windows, pews, and outside patio look in our wedding photos. But most importantly, we were glad to find a church to host us out-of-towners.

  • Church is breathtaking! The large windows were beautiful with the fall leaves in the background. Reception hall has nice windows as well and has a warm feel to it. Not only was the church and hall wonderful, but so were all the people that organized and helped run our wedding from Oak Arbor! Highly recommend! It was perfect!

  • Quality of Service: Oak Arbor's staff was responsive to my many questions and our caterer, Sean also arranged to meet us on site and have a tasting. Responsiveness: Emails were answered quickly and extra site visits were set up when my parents came to town. Professionalism: The Oak Arbor on site coordinator knew how to make the day go smoothly, from our arrival to clean up. My mom appreciated her support at the end of the night. Value- very good value, a beautiful venue for a reasonable price Flexibililty - they were able to switch my rehearsal time a month before the date for me due to travelling bridesmaids, and Sean allowed us to change our menu and timeline as well. During the evening, we decided to go off site for some photos, and they were able to adjust the meal time.

  • We didn't have to shop around much for a reception hall because as soon as my wife and I came to Oak Arbor, we loved it! The staff was very professional and friendly and the facility is beautiful. We both said that if we hadn't had an outdoor wedding, theOak Arbor sanctuary was our second choice to get married in. And we are so glad we used Oak Arbor for our reception! The hall was plenty of room for our 150-170 guests, plus photographers with a photo booth, the DJ and dance floor, dessert table and of course the gift table. The room was very clean and bright, the windows let a lot of outdoor light inside. The bathrooms were great, and the little lounging room was essential as that's where we signed the marriage license and took care of dress issues or just got a few seconds of quiet time. The rental was affordable and the kitchen was well suited for our caterer's needs, so overall we were absolutely pleased with the experience. Oak Arbor was an amazing place for our wedding re...

  • The venue was gorgeous and it was so great that we didn't have to be members and that we could use our own pastor--very rare for a church wedding these days. Mandy our venue coordinator was very helpful for the most part, especially during the rehearsal and the day of, although we wish she had been more available via phone in the months beforehand. Trying to plan from far away using only email made communication a bit slower than we would have liked, but at least that way it was all written down. Overall, a great experience.

  • This church is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and they provide a day of coordinator which is FABULOUS. However, they were very poor in responding (unless it was regarding collecting a payment) and Mandy was our contact person, she was friendly once we got ahold of her but often was "working from home" and unavailable for days/weeks to respond to emails. It was frustrating for me as I was an out of state bride and couldn't "stop by" to solve problems. That being said, the women I worked with were VERY kind, VERY accomodating the day of and this church is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I LOVED IT! The backdrop, rooms to get ready in, everything--beautiful! They also let us bring in our home church pastor which was so sweet of them! Definitely would recommend just be forewarned about subpar communication!

    Thanks for your review, Sarah! It was a bit of an unusual summer for me working from home, but I'm glad that in the end you felt that your day was special. All the best - Mandy

  • We had our wedding ceremony held at Oak Arbor Church. This church is so beautiful hardly any decorations are needed. All the staff here were great to work with, including the organist, Peggy, they reccomended. The staff was there helping for the rehersal and there coordinating the day of the wedding. Because of them everything went flawless. The price at this church was probably one of the highest of all the places we looked but well worth it. BEAUTIFUL CHURCH!

  • Venue is beautiful!!! Wedding Coordinator Mandy is not the most responsive of all people. Also not the most professional either. She was talking about our pastor in not the best manner and he was standing right there :-/ However the church it self is beautiful!

  • I fell in love with Oak Arbor the moment I walked in.....I KNEW that it was the place we had been looking for for seven months :) Mandy was always very accommodating - we came numerous times to look at the hall and the church. She was very willing to allow us in EVERYTIME! She promptly responded to all my emails and was very thorough with her answers. There was only one incident - a very minor one - that upset me on the day of, but overall, I was very pleased with choosing Oak Arbor. While it was pricier than some other options, we wouldn't have changed it for the world :)
