Bowing Oaks

Favorite feature of the wedding venue?
My favorite feature of the venue is the overall relaxed vibe. We are centrally located (15 minutes to Town Center, 25 minutes to the beaches, 30 minutes to St Augustine, and under 5 minutes to I-95 and I-295), but once you enter the property you have a sense of peacefulness and tranquility. Bowing Oaks has a Southern rustic elegance that can be casual or formal, boots or black tie. We also keep the property neutral so that any color scheme or theme can be used in your decor.

What are your couples’ favorite features of the venue?
While our couples love the ceremony and reception spaces, the real wow factor comes in the two wedding party dressing suites.

Tell us a little about the wedding venue? Is there a history or a cool story couples love to hear?
Unlike most other traditional venues, ours was designed and built specifically for weddings. We put a lot of thought into not only the guest experience, but also how the site functions for wedding professionals too. We looked at other wedding venues, and determined what was missing or what we would change. All those factors went into designing Bowing Oaks! The benefit of this is that we didn't try to force our vision into an existing structure - we build exactly what was needed.

What are the wedding venue spaces? 
1. "I Do" Oak: Pavered ceremony site surrounded with towering oaks trees
2. Ceremony Pavilion: Covered, open-air ceremony chapel
3. Event Patio: Pavered cocktail hour space adjacent to the ballroom
4. Ballroom: 3200 square foot air conditioned reception space seating up to 200 guests with a dance floor
5. Bride's Suite: Ladies dressing room with 8 bridesmaids hair/makeup stations, bride's hair/makeup station, 3 way mirror, sound system, television, private restroom and wet bar
6. Groom's Suite: Men's dressing room with pool table, 80" television, sound system, private restroom, and bar with refrigerator and sink
7. Paved and lighted parking lot with 100+ parking spaces

What’s included in your wedding packages?
We include the use of the property from 8:00 am until 11:00pm or midnight, depending on the day of the week. We also include tables and chairs for up to 200 guests.
