“I wish I could give Oatlands and their staff more than 5 stars because they were simply amazing! Not only is the venue beautiful you will not find a more unique place to get married- my guests loved being able to experience a piece of Virginia's history going into the mansion and having a Historian there to explain the story of the house and venue….” –Kristin K. 10/18/2016
