Four Oaks Manor Turns 100!
Built back in 1920, Four Oaks Manor has stood in Buford, GA for 100 years. The house was built on a large farm of over 400 acres. While the surrounding area has developed, Four Oaks holds onto its original charm with its wrap around porch, six fireplaces, and comfortable rooms. Over the years, Four Oaks Manor has hosted hundreds of weddings and events, filling its halls and gardens with countless memories.
In honor of the farmhouse’s 100th birthday, we’ve decided to show you some of our favorite parts of the house and share what makes it so special.
The first charming part of our virtual tour starts nowhere else than the wrap around porch. Not many things add more southern charm to a house than a big porch with rocking chairs, a floor painted classic Charleston’s haint blue, and a red front door. We love how welcoming and cozy our porch makes the house feel.
Next up is one of our coordinators Morgan’s favorite spot: the bridal suite bathroom. With its soft florals and neutral color palette, the bathroom is both elegant and bright and adds a more modern touch to the farmhouse. With a mimosa bar station and a window facing the gardens, the bathroom is the perfect space for a bride to prepare for her special day. She can sip on a mimosa, get her hair and makeup done, and relax (as much as she can on her wedding day).
The upstairs bedroom is Ellen’s favorite part of the house. Dressed in white and blue, this bedroom adds a quaintness to the house with its large window, a quilt on the bed, and a log fireplace. This room helps make brides feel at home. Plus, we love all the fun photos they take in the room on their wedding days - from photos with their maid of honor to their entire bridal party jumping on the bed.
Ellen also loves our Harry Potter-style cupboard under the stairs. Our little closet holds many decor pieces we use for events, including chargers, LED lights and wood slices. And don’t worry - we don’t have an 11-year-old wizard living under the stairs.
McKenzie’s favorite part of the house is the china cabinet. Not only is the cabinet host to hundreds of china plates of all different styles, but it’s also painted a unique shade of green that adds a fun pop of color to the dining room. Its antique gold knobs and hinges add character to the cabinet, giving the house even more personality.
Leaving the dining area, we head out back to one of our owners Jenny’s favorite spot: the gardens. She loves changing out the flowers and watching how they flourish. No matter the season, the gardens are beautiful. It’s where the magic happens. Guests never get enough of the wide-open space and are always curious to see where all our various paths lead them.
Lastly, co-owner Mickey's favorite thing about Four Oaks is watching how the venue changes between seasons. It's amazing how the same place can look so different. Summer and winter look so unalike each other, yet both seasons have their own value and style.
There are so many parts of our farmhouse that we love. We want to hear your favorite parts about Four Oaks’ farmhouse in the comments below!
