Outdoor Charm, An Eventective User from Orange Park, FL

Our wedding at Club Continental in Orange Park, FL was beautiful. It is an old mansion, now used as a bed and breakfast, located on the St. John's River. There are huge, ancient oak trees all over the property as well as a courtyard garden with a fountain in the middle. This is a perfect place for an outdoor wedding, where there is no need to worry about adding additional decorations. It is perfect for small and large weddings alike. We were given a lot of different food options and they really worked with us to build the menu we wanted. We had a buffet set up and the food could not have been better. The staff were very friendly and helpful every step of the way. One of my favorite parts of the night was the food tray that was waiting for us in our room. My new husband and I got to sit out on our balcony overlooking the river, eat the excellent food that we barely had a chance to enjoy during the reception, and reflect on the night. I really liked the fact that friends and family could stay at Club Continental. We had a great time swimming in the pool and hanging out at the bar. It was a totally relaxing experience. The rooms were very luxurious and comfortable. Ours, for example, had a four poster bed and garden bath tub. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and one I highly recommend to anyone looking to get married in the Jacksonville, FL area!
