The contract provides for seating for 200 guests. Guest count over 200 requires rental of additional tables and chairs by the lessee. We can seat 350 guests using our covered patio if needed.

Sound System

Oakhurst has a sound system available for your use during the ceremony and reception. You can hire a preferred vendor to provide a DJ, recorded music, or live entertainment with our system.

Decorations / Set-up

Premises are available after 10 a.m. on the day of your event.  Oakhurst takes care of set-up, clean-up and the other items included in your contract, such as round or rectangular tables; table linens in white, black, chocolate, or ivory; china, crystal, chargers, tableware; aisle markers, mirrors, vases, candelabrum, lanterns for the walkway or tables; and non-floral decorations in the event hall or the gardens.


To insure quality, Oakhurst has preferred vendors, which you can see on our “Preferred Vendors” page. These vendors are “tried and true” professionals. We have found them to provide consistent quality service. We suggest that you interview potential vendors and select the ones that seem the best fit for your needs.


All alcoholic beverages served or sold on Oakhurst property must be dispensed by our staff. Oakhurst is licensed to serve and sell wine and beer (cash bar). All Georgia State laws will apply. Bartenders must be at least 21 years of age. Guests under 21 will not be served alcoholic beverages, nor will anyone who appears to have exceeded his or her limit for alcohol consumption. Alcohol service will be discontinued at least 30 minutes prior to the event's conclusion. 

Alcohol service fees are not included in the package pricing; the fee will be determined separately with each client. There is an additional contract for alcohol service.
