The Most Beautiful Wedding Venue in Southwest Wisconsin

On September 6-8, we had the most wonderful weekend at White Oak Savanna celebrating our wedding. We had the best experience working with Paul & Audrey (the owners) and their staff throughout our planning process. The set-up for the weekend was beyond amazing. Honestly, pictures do not do this venue justice! There is beautiful architecture, rolling hills, and plenty of activities to do while at White Oak Savanna. For our wedding weekend, we had our rehearsal/rehearsal dinner on Friday, wedding Saturday and a gift opening brunch on Sunday--all of which were at White Oak Savanna. I never once left, it felt like I was on vacation and I was very relaxed for our big day. We rented both of the houses on their property and we truly felt at home while celebrating with our family and friends. The houses were stocked with any amenity possible and breakfast was also provided. Those who traveled to celebrate with us were able to stay in the local hotels in Dodgeville, which is only a short distance from the venue. White Oak Savanna went above and beyond to meet our needs to make our wedding weekend a memory that will last a lifetime. We were so fortunate to have beautiful weather and we were able to get married outside with cocktail hour to follow and the reception was located in the beautiful barn with a tent for extra seating. We also decorated their corn crib for a beautiful photo op for guests. Guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful the venue was--be sure to check it out! For more photos of the venue and our wedding be sure to check out my amazing photographer, Erika Diaz Photography.

Wedding Ceremony was perfect!

We had only the Wedding Ceremony at White Oak so I can only speak for that. I don't believe they normally allow Ceremony only with no reception, due to demand, but were very accommodating to us. At the last minute we needed to change venues due to the weather. Paul made arrangements for us immediately and set us up with his event coordinator, Jill. Jill was amazing! She helped with everything from start to finish and made sure everything was smooth up to and including walking us to the barn to go down the aisle. The barn is really set up nice. We had approximately 285 guests. It was a bit tight with that many but no complaints. The barn has mood lighting throughout that allows you to choose any color on the entire color spectrum to suit your wedding theme. The chairs are very nice and light blue in color. Parking attendants helped park cars. The outside premises are beautiful. Large oak trees, a West view for sunsets, and a nice rolling valley with a pond. We have no complaints at all! Based on our experience I highly recommend... But again I can only speak for the professionalism and accommodations we received during the ceremony. The kitchen did however appear to be very clean and modern for those weddings looking to have a reception. Thanks so much to Jill and Paul for allowing us to have our special day there!

Best wedding ever

"Best wedding ever" - according to many of our friends and families, and this had so much to do with White Oak Savanna. It is an amazing venue ; beautiful, unique, historic yet modern, ecologically-aware and in touch with nature. We highly recommend White Oak Savanna, after looking at many other outdoor venues in Wisconsin/Illinois. An excellent value for all that is included.

The staff is fabulous and worked so hard to make our weekend special. Many guests commented to us about how lovely the people at WOS were. Lots of games on site for kids and families to play, everyone just had a blast!

The surrounding area and small towns make for a great get away, and there are a variety of things to explore from Governor Dodge State Park, to local artisans and artists, theatre, and good restaurants.
The venue is very well-appointed, with many different options for ceremony sites, dinner/dancing configurations, etc.
We rented the whole venue for the entire weekend, stayed in the cottage, and also had our close friends stay in the farmhouse. All the accommodations there were excellent, and we loved having the little cottage hideaway just a short walk from the barn, where we had our dinner and reception. Lots of personal touches were considered like spare toiletries in the cottage, wine, snacks, etc. We could not have found a more relaxing place to host a very hectic, special weekend. Do not hesitate to book your wedding at White Oak Savanna - you will have the best time!

White Oak Savanna is the most beautiful wedding venue in Wisconsin.

We went and looked at it when it was still under construction, just a barn with a new concrete floor. But we saw the plans for what they wanted to do and took a chance on them. And it couldn’t have turned out better. They were so accommodating with our requests and helped ensure we had a flawless wedding.

We rented the whole venue for the weekend and it was well worth the money. We had the rehearsal dinner there complete with a bonfire after. We had some of our wedding party stay in the farmhouse and used it to get ready the day of. It’s deceivingly spacious and a simple backdrop for getting ready photos. We rented the honeymoon cottage for the wedding night and it was the perfect getaway. We were secluded and the cottage was so beautifully decorated and spacious we could have stayed there longer.

We appreciated every hand-written note we received during our stay with them, the fresh squeezed orange juice, the attention to detail and making sure we didn’t have to worry about minor details. White Oak Savanna is not your typical wedding venue. It’s a destination wedding in Wisconsin where the staff takes on your wedding as if it’s their own.

We don’t have a single regret, or wish that one thing was done differently. We had an amazing wedding that no one can stop talking about and it all started with the venue.
