    Perfection

    I attended the wedding of a friend and this venue and I just HAD to come brag on Valerie and everyone over at Cross Creek Ranch. From start to finish everything was perfect from the guests point of view. Valerie was an absolute gem who constantly made sure everyone had what they needed, but never seemed over bearing. Trying to convince my sister in law to get married here next!!

    Cross Creek Ranch's reply:

    Thank you for leaving us such a nice review! We feel very lucky to have Valerie on our team and we will make sure to pass along the compliments to her. We would love to help your sister in law plan her special day! We hold tours seven days a week.

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    If you are looking for the PERFECT wedding venue, look no further than Cross Creek Ranch in Dover, FL! The level of professionalism, patience and attention to detail that the entire team takes to create the wedding of your dreams is outstanding! The venue offers different settings for your special day. My daughter and son in law fell in love with Enchanted Forest where they could see their vision of their special day taking place. The Designer; Margo took the time to listen, get to know and create my daughters’ vision of her fairy tale wedding. Her attention was not only to the bride to be, but to myself and my husband and what we envisioned for our little girls’ special day! From that point on the team took care of everything guiding our daughter on the decisions to be made. The concierge, Lyndsay coordinated meetings with the florist and baker for my daughter. Valerie, the Lead Coordinator built this friendship with my daughter that turned into the most amazing experience I could ever imagine. Valerie became part of our family! She made sure that everyone in the wedding party was informed, comfortable, aware of their responsibilities and made sure we all had fun at the same time! Valerie made herself available 24-7, no kidding, she was beyond amazing! The bridal party spent the day at the main house where we were well taken care of by our appointed “house mom” Brenda. She made sure all of our needs were met and kept everyone comfortable. Did I mention the owner even stopped by to bring us fresh cut flowers from her garden? A special thank you to Annika that helped myself and the maid of honor search through the 3 layers of bustling my daughters dress  that was quite a job! You can plan on your guests being taken care of at every turn! The staff was so friendly and made sure that everyone stayed well hydrated and fed. I was told on multiple occasions by our guests that they did not want the night to end because it was such an elegant but comfortable event! I would have to agree, it was so much fun! I truly could go on and on about this venue, from start to finish Cross Creek Ranch was above and beyond any expectation my husband and I could have had. The venue itself is gorgeous, but their ability to place such special people in positions to make our day so, so perfect for our only child was such a blessing. Thank you to everyone at Cross Creek!
