We are on the count down and beyond excited for our first ever Oak Hills Reception and Event Center Open House! And of course, we want you to join us!! If you've ever wanted to check out the venue, ask us questions, meet the people behind the scenes, or are just curious about the new reception center that everyone has been talking about, then now's your chance to come. What's on the agenda you ask?! Here's a list of the things that we have planned so far!
General Q & A's
Each and every wedding venue in the nearby Davis County area has their own individual way of hosting weddings. We want to show you how Oak Hills Reception and Event Center does it! And believe me when I say, some of the things we have to offer you will have to see it to believe it! (Those mountain backdrops are beyond words to describe how beautiful they are!)
The moment you walk in the doors you'll be greeted by Shirelle, the general manager. She'll be able to answer all the questions that you might have concerning pricing, availability, our policies and so on. So come with your questions and let's see if we're a good fit for your wedding day needs!
Yours truly (Aleesha), will also be there to showcase the array of design options and answer any questions that you might have when it comes to decorating and planning your wedding. The sky is the limit when it comes to decor ideas and we want to help you in designing your dream wedding. Our reception center is unique in the fact that we offer a wedding manager to oversee your event to make sure it goes off as near to perfection as possible. So come and meet me! I love my brides and think of them as one of my own!
Soda Bar Services
Are you planning on having an Open Bar or a Soda Bar at your wedding? Then you're going to want to come meet "The Man" of the place, Brock. He will be here showcasing his bar tending skills. For open house purposes, he will be serving some of your favorite mixed soda drinks. So even if you aren't planning on having a bar at your wedding, come grab a drink. It's on us!
You've all seen them on Pinterest, and now's your chance to see one in real life (and sample one!). One of the many services we offer, is a customized candy bar! Are your colors pink & gold? Okie dokie! We'll get candy to match! Come check out how fun and pretty a candy bar can be for your wedding. (However, forewarning, there may or may not be a chance that the candy will be gone by the time you all arrive. I've already bought all the candy and am having a really hard time resisting!!)
Tour the Venue
Come have fun touring our expansive wedding venue. You'll start in our elegant main building which houses a reception and dining area, a large bridal suite, a kid's room, a groom's room (aka, the man cave), a second floor area that can be used as overflow seating or a lounge, and a beautiful outdoor deck area that is fun for dancing. After that you'll walk through our lush evergreen gardens, across the newly constructed bridge, and into our open ceremony site with it's gorgeous mountain view backdrop. Once you've taken in those breathtaking mountains, you'll then head over to our newest addition, The Barn. If you're looking for more of a rustic look for your wedding, then you're going to want to come and check out our barn wedding venue! It's open floor plan and rustic chic feel is sure to please.
All of our preferred vendors will be there showcasing what they have to offer. If you're newly engaged or just thinking about getting engaged, then you're going to want to stop by to check these amazing vendors out!
Catering: Catering can be a stress when it comes to wedding planning. Fortunately for you we've cut a lot of the stress out and have on board with us Sandy's Catering company. They're a reputable catering company that has been around for generations. I can say all day long until I'm blue in the face how yummy their food is, but I want to make a true believer out of you and give you the pleasure of trying them out yourselves. Sandy's will have samples of some of their most popular menu items for you to come and taste, so I advise you to take full advantage of this. Tell them Aleesha sent you ;)
Cake Artist: Sweet Cravings by Marcia, will be there with a display of some of her amazing wedding cake creations. And get this.... not only are her cakes beautiful to look at, but they taste absolutely amazing. As proof, she'll have samples of her cake pops for you to try, which I am confident will make a believer out of you that she's the best around!
Photographers: We're also lucky to have Jessie and Dallin Utah Wedding Photographers at our open house giving you a look at some of their amazing work. This is one couple that it's one thing to see their talented photos, but then it's a whole other to meet them in person. They are fun, happy, energetic and just all around good people! Once you meet them and see their breathtaking photos, you'll know that your photographer search is over.
Rustic Rentals: Another vendor that we're excited to have on board is Home Sweet Home. They have the most beautiful handmade farmhouse tables (and lots of other furniture) that you're going to want to see in person. Their tables go perfectly in our rustic chic barn and we're excited to have them on board with us to give our brides even more options when planning their dream wedding.
Calligrapher: And last, but definitely not least, we will have Melanie from Meligrafi Custom Calligraphy & Watercolour giving us a taste of her artistic calligraphy skills. The love is in the details when it comes to weddings and Melanie will be sure to give you that at yours. She can do anything from wedding invitations to escort cards while giving each of them a customized and unique look. She's absolutely amazing!
Every vendor in attendance will be having their own custom giveaways, but you gotta be in it to win it so make sure to stop by. At the end of the open house, we'll randomly pick the lucky duck winners and notify you by phone or email. Who doesn't love free stuff, am I right?!
Can't Wait to See You!
As you can see, we've got a lot going on and a lot of snacking to be done! So grab your fiancé, your gal pals, or whoever else you think might be interested and come hang out with us on February 9th! We're excited to show you our gorgeous hidden treasure of a wedding venue here in Layton, Utah!
