The Oaks at Salem | A Mansion with Centuries-old Charm + Rustic Barn with Mature Hardwoods
The Oaks at Salem is a premiere venue, established in 2011, for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events and other functions. The property provides numerous options for outdoor and indoor entertaining. Combining centuries-old charm with the best of modern conveniences, the setting is designed to capitalize on the views from every vantage point. Situated on eleven pastoral acres with mature hardwoods and a rustic barn perfect for photography, the site offers a cozy fireplace and over a thousand square feet of veranda overlooking a one acre serene pond. The Courtyard with its rustic brick and magnificent doors create a lovely backdrop for the ceremonies.

Previous brides have consistently described the venue as stunning and the staff as super accommodating and helpful, resulting in less stress for the bride. “The organization and professionalism of the wedding coordinators can’t be beat,” states one previous bride. So many things are included in their package according to brides that typically would cost extra – such as chairs, tables and lights.
Bride, Adrienne, says "I loved that there was a backup plan in case of rain - that was a huge help!" And indeed, summer thunderstroms struck on her wedding day, and the ceremony was moved to the beautiful covered patio area as shown below (yet another gorgeous spot at this venue).
"The beauty of the venue and organization of the staff," made bride, Adrienne and her groom, Nick, choose it as their wedding venue. There are so many beautiful picturesque spots for wedding day photographs! Just a Dream Photography captured their big day as shown above and below.
This venue is magical. The grounds are exquisite. The decor in the home is classic, and the bridal suite is both beautiful and functional. Photo opportunities are endless. You really cannot go wrong with this gorgeous North Carolina venue!
