Bear Tree Barn Wedding and Event Center is a farm-style wedding venue located in Bushnell, Florida. The name was bestowed upon the venue due to a family legend that was passed down from generation to generation. The story went that there was a heroic woman who defeated a marauding bear on the property. As bears were not often seen in the local surroundings, the land assumed a new identity as the home of this peculiar occurrence, later being aptly named the Bear Tree Ranch to pay homage to the tale.
