Simply delightful

Brides, Grooms鈥ook no further! This DIY venue is beyond stunning!! It sits on the water (Lake Monroe) with stunning sunsets. We were married on a Friday evening in May. Our ceremony was mostly cloudy, so we didn鈥檛 think we were going to get a sunset鈥ut we got one of the best I鈥檝e ever seen!!
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鈥檛 use the fire pit and I鈥檓 not sure if anyone played games鈥 was too busy dancing in the A/C馃ぃ.
The inside of the venue is gorgeous! There鈥檚 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!

Great for Corporate Event

Perfect location for our company holiday party. Judy was fantastic to work with and the venue was beautiful with holiday decorations. We utilized their fire pit to have smore's as part of our desserts and purchased our centerpieces from the venue. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Perfect Venue for a Lakefront Wedding!

520 has to be one of the best venues that I have worked in the central Florida area. They have a beautiful view of the water and an excellent ballroom. Vicky is the event manager there and she is super easy to work with. It is also very convenient that they have an outside area for a ceremony and have power for a speaker system as well. If your looking for an affordable venue in central Florida for your next event, I defiantly recommend 520!!!

Wedding and Special Events Coordinator

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鈥檚 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鈥檚 not your style, if it doesn鈥檛 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.
