Introducing our newest rental item - The Elegant Bar! We love this addition to our inventory so much. It was lovingly built in-house at Bowing Oaks and was designed for our couples with a modern or formal esthetic. The Elegant Bar is available now to rent for your wedding!

The Elegant Bar is all white with a stunning white quartz top, and it is approximately 9 feet in length so it is a great size for two bartenders to share. The Elegant Bar is on wheels, so it can be used both inside and outside.

Even if you are having a buffet-style dinner, ask your caterer about serving a plated salad. Not only does it add a pretty finishing touch to your table design, but it also gives your guests a little something to nibble on while they wait to be invited to the buffet.

Our antique wagon is one of the first things your guests will see when they arrive at Bowing Oaks - why not make it a stunning focal point? Alecia and Andrew chose this location for the gifts and cards, family photos and their guest sign in area. What a beautiful way to welcome guests to your wedding!

We feature a lot of photos of wedding ceremonies at our I Do Oak, but our ceremony pavilion is just as stunning! If you are looking for a more formal option for your ceremony, the pavilion is a great choice. It's also a fabulous option that takes the guesswork out of making a weather call on your wedding day, and our ceiling fans can keep your guests cooler on warmer days. Contact us to schedule a tour and see all the great options our property offers!

We may be partial, but our I Do Oak is simply stunning year-round! And we love seeing the different decor styles that our couples choose. Our whiskey barrels provide the perfect perch for floral arrangements to frame the entrance into the ceremony space, and often these arrangements can be re-purposed for your reception.

Such a lovely blend of rustic elegance! We love the beautiful tall centerpieces lining our wooden farm tables paired with the gold chargers on the wedding party's table. Add in our crystal chandeliers, white fabric draping, and our couple's names projected on the wall and it's a recipe for the most beautiful wedding!

Bowing Oaks has the best lighting in all of Jax venues 😍🙌🏻 I said what I said! 😂 1 week ago was the big day for Shannon + Andrew - the sweetest and most laid back couple, loved getting to hang with these two! The Eventful Gals Bowing Oaks Studio Bride
This wedding day was a blur in the most beautiful way. The day dawned with the kind of weather every couple dreams of having for their wedding. Sweet letters were exchanged, family and friends packed in to honor and celebrate this union, amazing vendor team, a full dance floor party, and a bride and groom who had waited years to begin their forever As each moment of the wedding unfolded, it was the kind of experience that makes you wish time would slow down time a bit so you could savor it for a few moments longer. So thrilled to share this teaser film as we relive these moments taking us right back to Amanda & Steven's amazing wedding. Congrats to you both! Venue: Bowing Oaks Photography: Stephanie W.
