Historic Oakland

5430 Vantage Point Rd., Columbia, MD 21044 Oakland is also a historic mansion, but with its white, elegant finishes, it offers a completely different feel. This is a great spot if you want your wedding to be secluded and away from it all, since it’s located in a wooded, forested area of Columbia, Maryland. It can fit up to 180 guests and has plenty of outdoor space to host the ceremony or the reception out in the woods. Get all the details of how a wedding would manifest on the wedding website.
