THE VENUE GUIDE
This beautifully restored farm is filled with a variety of gorgeous settings for your day. The Farmhouse is the perfect place for Brides to enjoy a few mimosa's while getting ready with her closest friends. Meanwhile the guests can enjoy the beautiful country setting that is located in Maine, NY, just under 30 minutes from Binghamton and Vestal NY. It is close to home yet you feel in a different world in this beautiful space!
With several unique ceremony locations, you're sure to find one perfectly tailored for your day. Say I do in the pavilion or in the open field or even in the barn!
As you walk the grounds, you’ll capture photos that will grace your home for decades to come. You’ll dance the night away inside the original barn light with twinkly lights and elegant chandeliers. Your guests will feel right at home in how you so beautifully decorated the inside and thought of every last detail.
As you drive away, leaving the farm as Husband and Wife, you’ll look over at your handsome husband and thank God you’re married to such an amazing man. And you’ll always remember how beautiful your day truly was.

It makes the day so much more relaxed if you get ready on location! You get to enjoy the little slice of heaven even longer! :) There are local airbnb's for the guys to get ready in if the girls are using the farmhouse!
Where do you recommend taking our family portraits?
There's so many beautiful spots for photos at Oak and Lace Wedding venue but some we really love and think would be perfect for family photos are:
- In front of the main barn doors
-In the field
-In front of the corn silos
What time should we schedule our ceremony to begin?
Oak and Lace is wonderful because everything can be in one location! If you are getting married off location, you need to remember to account for travel time to the ceremony & back from the ceremony in your timeline. For an on location wedding, 4pm is a great starting ceremony time, then 4:45pm for family photos, 5pm cocktail hour starts and dinner is around 6:30pm!
What is Plan B if the
weather is bad?
You don't have to worry about rainy days at Oak and Lace Weddings. You can have an outdoor ceremony in the field or in the wooded meadow but there is also a beautiful ceremony pavilion. The main reception barn is completely closed in so you don't have to worry about rain for the reception.
How long should we plan to take bride & groom portraits?
We recommend planning the following for portraits:
Family Photos : 20 minutes
Bridal Party Photos : 20-25 minutes
Couple Photos : 30- 45 minutes
(as long as you'll give us!)
Sunset Photos: 10 minutes at golden hour
What other vendors do you recommend?
