  • The Oaks at Salem is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. As a professional violinist, I have been performing at weddings here for over a decade, and I can say that the property is always impeccable, and the staff is top notch. April and her staff are focused on giving their best, and go above and beyond to make their couple’s dreams come true. Having performed at many places world wide it is rare to find a venue like the Oaks at Salem that is both beautiful (oh my gosh, it’s so picturesque!), and provides excellent service. My team and I highly recommend it for any event!

  • I can’t count the amount of compliments I received about how beautiful the venue was and how perfect everything was set up. The grounds are so pretty and well kept, the bridal suite is giant and gives enough room for everyone to get ready. Becky was my coordinator and she was absolutely amazing; I can’t thank her enough for all of the hard work she put into making our day absolutely perfect. Becky and April make the process seamless and I can’t thank them enough!

  • I cannot review The Oaks highly enough!! If your budget can fit The Oaks, get married at The Oaks! They made it so easy leading up to the wedding and the weekend of! I felt so relaxed and happy all day on our wedding day, thank in no small part to their excellent day of coordination! We ended up working with multiple Oaks coordinators throughout the process and everyone was absolutely fantastic (thank you all!!). They helped us implement some nontraditional ideas, in addition to all the normal things - including a t shirt toss on the lawn!! When it rained day of they flipped the tent for the ceremony so it could be inside in such a quick turnaround, we still managed to run ahead of schedule! The Oaks is absolutely beautiful venue, and convenient for any Triangle folks. Their recommended vendors list was also so useful, as was their vendor marketplace and the vendor shows they host! I'll say it again - choose The Oaks!!

  • It was truly a pleasure to work with April, Aubriana and the entire team at the Oaks at Salem. I had many questions, which were always answered promptly. I felt at ease on the day of my wedding because of how organized everything was. Everything ran smoothly and all of my guests commented on how beautiful everything was. It was a perfect day and one that I will never forget. Thank you so much for making it special!

  • We are so glad we found The Oaks at Salem. We worked directly with April (owner) and Aubriana was our wedding coordinator. Both were extremely personable and thorough. Not a single detail was missed, and everything was so organized and ran smoothly. The grounds are breathtaking and close to home! Living in Cary and having the majority of our guests flying in from around the country (as well as outside of the country), it was important to us to secure a location near plenty of things to do but within reasonable driving distance to the airport. The Oaks at Salem has a "vendor marketplace" that was incredibly helpful to us as this was the first wedding we were trying to plan. April was incredibly informative, friendly, and professional. Any questions that we had that popped up, we would email and they would get back to us usually within a few minutes! Aubriana did a phenomenal job doing day-of-coordination for our vendors as well as letting guests know where to go, etc. She an... Read more

  • Everything about The Oaks was wonderful. The site itself was beautiful, even on a hot day. The communication was great, every question answered, every request granted. Our coordinator was Aubrianna, and she made the day run so smoothly and kept everything on a great schedule. She took all the worries away. We couldn't have done this without her. We received so many compliments on The Oaks, not only the beauty of the house and grounds, but the ease and comfort of everything. We will always recommend The Oaks at Salem as a A1 site to hold a wedding. Thank you for everything.

  • As a vendor in the Triangle area, we love working at Oaks at Salem! The venue is GORGEOUS with an incredible bridal suite to get ready and the most picturesque views! April and Aubrianna are a dream to work with. They are both extremely organized, communicative, flexible, and the most gracious hosts. They make the whole process of coordinating a wedding so easy for their clients and for us vendors. We receive everything right on time and could not ask for a better partner for our clients. Choosing Oaks at Salem and their team is a guaranteed home run for any event!

  • Our daughter was to be married on March 21, 2020 at the Oaks of Salem. Unfortunately due to the pandemic it was canceled 6 days before. It was an extremely trying time but I must give credit to April and Aubriana. They were both incredibly helpful, professional, and most importantly supportive. To sum up, we were offered several alternate dates and when all was said and done we worked through 4 dates. Both April and Aubriana contacted every vendor on each occasion and checked availability. We never felt abandoned or neglected. Ultimately my daughter and her husband married on November 13th with approximately 100 people. Although we were limited due to restrictions on dancing, etc. the wedding was beautiful. Thanks to Aubriana, Rocky Top Catering, Elite DJ Solutions, CJ Rentals, Ariel Kaillin Photography, and Mews Designs we were able to host a beautiful wedding. Unfortunately rain covered the area for several days before the 13th. The skies cleared a couple hours before ceremony time a... Read more

  • I do project management for a living, but it was so hard to plan a wedding while working. Veni really knocked my socks off with her attention to detail. She obviously has this down to an art, knowing exactly who needs to be where and when, and what sort of things to look out for. She is even able to be sensitive to certain family dynamics if need be. I had 9 bridesmaids, and she handled our large wedding party with grace and ease. The venue is unbelievably beautiful, and people are still commenting to me about it 7 mos later - even men haha - how beautiful it was. I am so appreciative for Oaks at Salem being the place where we had such a magical moment.

  • The Oaks at Salem was an amazing venue to host our wedding. It is such a beautiful property, we could not have asked for anything better. April and her team were amazing to work with. After we had to postpone our wedding due to a hurricane, April worked closely with us to ensure that our new wedding date was going to be just as amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

  • I was supposed to get married May 18 2020. However then COVID-19 happened and I was forced to cancel and move to a new date they would only offer me some dates and were very rude when I mentioned a refund. The only date I was left with was November, I had planned for a May wedding not November. They would NOT offer me May 2021. I will not being having my wedding in November which I explained to them and I had already paid $4000 dollars they were trying to force me to pay the rest which was $2000 by May even though they made me change my date to November. I was out of work because of the COVID and they were trying to make me pay $2000 still. I will not be having my wedding at this venue as they keep stating there is a non-refundable deposit stated in the contract, however it does not state on account of a pandemic or state of emergency.

  • The Oaks at Salem team was incredible from start to finish, being a LGBT couple, it was important for us to have welcoming vendors and the team at the Oaks was very accepting and we did work with them to update their paperwork to be more inclusive. We loved the ease of working with the Oaks as linen, tables/chairs, and floral/candle glassware was all included, making planning from afar easy. Becky and April were always available to answer any questions and the day of the wedding, we had nothing to worry about and were able to enjoy ourselves as well as our guests! Recommendations for other vendors were top notch and made for a cohesive, stress-free planning.
