We can't wait to celebrate with you.

We want you to be able to fully relax and enjoy your wedding day. That's why our team of day-of coordinators spends more time face-to-face listening to the vision for your wedding than we do sitting behind a desk.

We can't say 'thank you' enough to the friends, families, and supporters that helped make Silver Oaks Chateau a reality. Without you, our crazy dream of building a French chateau from the ground up never would have come to life. Since breaking ground in 2014, we have been continually amazed to see one idea grow from a blueprint to a reality - a place of so much joy and significance for hundreds of families.

Silver Oaks Chateau has become our second home and we are so glad to share it with you. 

-Ron and Sandi Tate
