It’s Spotlight Day! Where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding venues and vendors, and the stories behind their companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
When people ask “what do you do”, how do you answer?
We open our home and farm for weddings and events. We love to have you and your friends and family as our guests! We take pride in helping you make your wedding dreams come to life!
What did you do before this?
For the last 15 years, I have been a Catering Director or Sales Manager for properties ranging from 5-star resorts to Country Clubs and Golf Courses. I have planned all types of events including social celebrations, weddings, trade shows, fundraisers, and more.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
With a passion for events since I was young, I pursued a career in Hospitality and Event Planning. My first experience was working at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan, PR, where I had the chance to work with renowned event professionals that made me fall in love with the event world and the rest is history… haven’t stopped since then 🙂
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
Definitely seeing our clients’ vision come to life. When the wedding day is finally here; the gratification you feel when they see everything we’ve planned come together even better than they ever imagined – that’s when we know we did it right! And we do it over and over again because it is truly why we do what we do!
What motivates you to do this every day?
There is a level of thrill that comes with helping our couples plan their wedding and that thrill keeps me going. Also, the diversity of what we do – every couple is unique, every wedding is different and we take time in getting to know our couples so that, when their day is here, it really emphasizes them! It is all about their day and their overall satisfaction.
What is important for clients to know about your company before they book you?
We care about you and your event’s success!
What types of events do you specialize in?
We specialize in weddings, but we host anything from small social events to fundraisers, to high school reunions and more!

Here is what some previous couples had to say…
“Beautiful place for any wedding. Has a lot of great scenery for photos. The owners are still working on the venue with some great things to come.”- Del Marie B.
“Simply enchanting. This new venue in Astatula, Florida (Lake County) will be a truly magical setting for couples looking for a more rustic, country-like feel…yes, it’s possible to get that in Florida! This special venue is comparable to the many popular barn-style wedding and event venues in my home state of Colorado.
Tay and Craig, Owners, are delightful with a sense of true southern hospitality you’d expect from the area. It was such a pleasure to visit and see firsthand how much love, care, and attention to detail is going into their dream and bringing their vision to life! As someone with 15+ years in the wedding and event industry, I know it will be a special venue for weddings and other special celebrations. Your visit will leave you breathless and awed as it did my husband and me today.” – Karen S.
“Cypress Creek Farmhouse is absolutely STUNNING! It is the perfect barn house venue and it is full of charm in every corner. The ballroom is breathtaking with gorgeous crystal chandeliers and the surrounding outdoors is so scenic and peaceful. There is this super fun photo spot with floral paintings too for bridal parties. There’s so much character throughout the whole property. One of the ceremony spots faces a gorgeous tranquil lake that looks like it’s right out of a painting!
The owners are both so kind and hospitable. One of our favorite features is that you can actually spend the night in a beautiful cottage as an add-on. The cottage has an amazing pool and fire pit. It perfect for family time! The bridal suite is also adorable with a full-size mirror ladies… Super chic! Can’t wait to be back to this incredible place!!” – Ocean Hawks Rentals
