Wonderfully Unique Award Winning Wedding Venue
Wonderfully Unique Award Winning Venue – you exceeded our expectations! From the day that we first visited Bridlewood Ranch we feel in love with EVERYTHING! The owner Elaine is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. She has created the most amazing “stress free” experience for a wedding! From the moment that our contract was signed to the day after the wedding this team makes you feel like family, feel like you are the most important family they’ve ever had and truly make the process extremely easy. They have essentially all-inclusive options or a la carte options to make your dream wedding not only affordable but a one stop shopping experience. Their preferred vendors made this a “Stress FREE” experience from their bartenders, the DJ, the photographer (who was GREAT), the florist (again WONDERFUL) and cake company! Bridlewood Ranch is beautiful… the lakefront ceremony was the perfect backdrop for a laid back style or an elegant ceremony. The “cocktail” area also lakefront is the perfect distraction for your guest while you wait for picture taking. The barn is truly magical for the ceremony or reception of every brides dream. The Bride and Groom Cottages are the perfect place to relax and prepare for all the hard work and planning and Bridlewood puts lots of special touches into those cottages. What also makes this venue so appealing is the option they give to use any of their décor items for your event; this is many times a huge additional cost in your budget and they have things you can use – awesome perk and savings! The day of wedding coordinator Alyssa was such a delight to work with and the work that she and Elaine put into making our day special was so appreciative (not enough thanks could be given). Elaine has surrounded herself with the most amazing “Dream Team” there was not a member of their team that wasn’t an absolute pleasure to work with. By the end of the event it’s kind of sad because they felt like family at that point. There were COUNTLESS ways that they made our beautiful day special, very memorable and the many things that they did for us simply as kind gestures will forever be remembered! I will forever be singing their praises because it is so well deserved just as their many awards! Thank you Elaine and your awesome team, we wish you continued success!Sent on 06/27/2019

Fairy Tale Wedding
Almost every little girls dream growing up is to get married. I can't say I had that fairy tale. I almost believed it would be impossible due to all the bad choices I had made throughout my years growing up.Sent on 06/07/2019
A few years ago I made some big changes with my life, December of 2018 I got engaged to my now wonderful husband. Thoughts of getting married started to become more and more of a reality.
I looked at a bunch of different venues and Bridlewood was the one that stood out the most to me. It was so beautiful. Rustic barn, beautiful lake view, bridal and groom's cabins. The price for everything was very reasonable, and it was so simple because everything was included.
Elaine and Alyssa were complete blessings to me throughout the whole six months of planning. They answered every question I had and made the planning of the wedding super easy and fun.
The day of I will give props to all the staff at Bridlewood, everyone had a part, and every single person that was there made sure that this day would be as perfect as it could be. The Dj was great, the food was to die for, and Elaine and Alyssa were angels. There was one point of the day where Alyssa was texting me, make sure you eat! What a sweetheart.
Bridlewood Ranch is definitely a wonderful place to have a wedding, it was everything that I could have dreamed of I finally got my fairy tale wedding, June 1st, 2019 and we lived happily ever after

Bridlewood ranch is such an enchanted find in the back roads of Clermont. There is an amazing lake front, bridal suite, groom saloon, huge barn, children’s play coral and so much more. This venue is ever growing and is such a sight to see. I absolutely love coordinating weddings out there and working with the staff. They are all professional, easy going and wonderful to work with.
I love photographing weddings at Bridlewood. They have done an amazing job at creating a venue that brings rustic and elegance together. It is a photographer's dream venue with big trees, a gorgeous reception area, and several great portrait locations. The staff is great to work with also! They are laid back but will get things done. I can't say enough great things about this venue. I can't wait to go back!
This place has one of the best "hidden gems" of a ceremony location of any rustic venue. Worth a trip out to see it if you are looking for a ranch type wedding with a little something extra.
