Enchanted Florida Forrest. Hidden Gem.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Bird Island Lake Ranch and the owner Casie Holloway are incredible. My wedding was held late November 2019 the weather was perfect and I received so many compliments from guests as to how much they loved the venue. The property is absolutely peaceful and all the string lights with the grandfather oaks create such a beautiful ambient that little decor is needed. The property lends to itself. I have so many great things to say about the venue and Casie herself. Casie is non-prestigious, she is a wonderful listener, she goes above and beyond and takes a genuine interest in the brides. She also takes create pride in her family's property and maintains the grounds so that brides in years to come can enjoy the old florida feeling once lost. The venue includes round tables, really nice dark mahogany chairs, string lights, high top cocktail tables, bar, kitchen, white linens, benches for ceremony area, fire tender, and for a little bit extra the venue offers full plate and utensil set with glassware, a bartender --who will take the time to either pick up nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages or tell you how much you'll need based on your guest list. They also offer the use of farm tables (for a reasonable amount). The property is very big we had a 140 guests, 2 food trucks, a VW photo booth. We utilized the fire pit for s'mores, hung a beautiful swing with our own string lights, had a very large set up for our D.J. an acoustic guitarist, a charcuterie table, another table for coffee, a separate area for gifts, cake and desserts and our ceremony was also held on property. Having such a large space to work it gave the guests room to relax and enjoy the evening. I cannot express enough what a wonderful place this is. It is a hidden gem.Sent on 12/06/2019

My husband and I were married at Bird Island a few weeks ago and we cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was! Casie and her team spent months with me planning and ensuring that our day was exactly what we wanted. We fell in love with the venue immediately and it truly was the most perfect place for us to start our marriage!Sent on 04/04/2018
