We chose this venue for a few reasons: 1- the view, 2- you can bring in your own caterer, 3- you can bring in your own alcohol (their bartender serves it), and 4- our beloved dog could be there all night long!
We dealt mostly with Vicky, we used her as our day of coordinator (HIGHLY recommend!!). We did speak with Judy a few times and she was just as friendly!! Vicky responded to our questions quickly and sent us pictures of possible table settings and centerpieces. She truly has an eye for decorating! Vicky helped ensure everything was stress free and really helped us enjoy the best day of our lives.
The outdoor ceremony space is beautiful! We used their decorations (chose the signs), and had Vicky set everything up. We were beyond satisfied with the ceremony set up, it looked amazing!!
In addition to outdoor ceremony space, they have a fire pit and yard games. It was warmer, so we didn’t use the fire pit and I’m not sure if anyone played games…I was too busy dancing in the A/C🤣.
The inside of the venue is gorgeous! There’s windows galore so you can watch the sunset and boats going by. The restrooms have little items in them in case your guests may need a freshen up or anything like that. There are steps to go outside onto the enclosed deck as well. They placed tall tables out there so people could enjoy the outside without the bugs.
The space was perfect for our wedding of about 100 people. We had plenty of space for dancing, the food, cake, bar, Photo Booth and the DJ!
I cannot thank Vicky enough, she knocked it out of the park! We recommend 520 on the Water to anyone and everyone looking for a venue!

My first real Job was working for a catering company located in Casselberry Florida. I was hooked and best of all, I was able to show my creativity through food displays and setting up the Buffet tables. I was later offered a job at a much larger catering company. My new job as a Wedding and Special Events Coordinator was a great fit. I had the flexibility to accommodate most budgets and offer my expertise in the field. I loved working with clients who were so excited to share their vision and me helping to execute it. After 3 years, an offer was presented to me, and I took it. (With much needed help from my parents) I bought the company.
Many years passed with me always having trouble finding an in-between with Family and work. Realizing something had to give and with the I-4 project in full swing making my commute to Orlando a living nightmare, searching for a closer location became my goal. I live in Sanford so why not start here. Knowing Woolf’s closed the doors this location became a possibility. I never thought that my career would make a dramatic shift and a brand-new project with turning the building into a venue instead of a new catering location.
520 on the Water Is a family owned business. We try hard to accommodate all clients. Due to my experience, my focus is on Weddings. I work with brides, and I am often hired to be their day of coordinator. I go above and beyond with helping in all areas needed from set up, decor, and guiding them the best I can. I love this venue but 520 Is not for everyone. If it’s not your style, if it doesn’t fit into your vision, keep looking. The important thing is you find a location that you love. After all this is your day, not mine. Just know we are here for you if the shoe fits.
