Your wedding is sure to stand out from the rest when you exchange vows in our charming and historic citrus grove that dates back to 1939. Start your life together in a unique Florida setting where sweet- smelling orange blossoms, trickling fountains, a Koi pond and rock waterfall serve as your backdrop.
This one- of- a- kind "Garden Oasis" includes a Key West style gazebo and pavilion - perfect for ceremonies and receptions of up to 250. With portrait- worthy backgrounds everywhere you look, professional shutterbugs often refer to our location as "a photographer’s dream."
The Garden Oasis also includes an adjacent catering kitchen and a large, stylishly- decorated bridal dressing room where the bride and bridesmaids can relax and get ready before the ceremony. And for a truly original element to add to your ceremony, you can even have our professionally- trained hawk fly in your wedding bands.
Our property also holds a second, magical wedding location - a Butterfly Garden overflowing with colorful flowers and a brand new, indoor reception hall called the "Honeybell Hall." Perfect for weddings under 150, the Honeybell Hall includes a small catering kitchen and an outdoor, wooden deck area.
