About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Cross Creek Ranch is a barn wedding venue located in the heart of Dover, Florida. What started out as a Sunshine State ranch became a spellbinding location for nuptial events when Bonnie and her husband, Sean, purchased the property in 2000. Nestled amongst acres upon acres of age-old oaks and soaring Birches, this dynamic duo has successfully transformed their property into a spectacular setting for storybook happily ever afters.

For "I dos" under the Southern sky, couples can take to the Enchanted Forest, where a deep wood walkway and benches await the nearlyweds and their loved ones. Cross Creek Ranch also showcases various event spaces for a reception filled with festive frivolity. The White Oak Barn is a spacious, 12-foot-high, air-conditioned outhouse dressed to the nines in luxe and lavish décor. The French Country Inn is another fabulous location for intimate gatherings and features a glorious outdoor patio for dining and dancing beneath the stars.

    Dream Wedding!!

    I am SO happy we went with Cross Creek for our wedding day. Everything was well planned and perfect! The planning leading up to the day was well managed, and the staff were super helpful in giving me an outline on what should be done/decided at what time. There was never a question I couldnt get a quick answer to. The design meetings and detail meetings were well run, and I always felt prepared for what we would be going over. All of the vendors that they recommended were AMAZING as well! The day of, there was always someone with me and my husband to make sure we were on time and tended to anything we needed. Our day of coordinator was Annika, and she was the best. Literally a dream venue, well worth everything!!

    The perfect all-inclusive wedding

    The most beautiful and breathtaking venue! Specifically, we were at the French Country Inn. The price is hard to beat for an all-inclusive wedding venue. The only thing you have to do independently from the venue was to get your own photographer, officiant, hair/makeup artists, and to purchase your own alcohol for the guests. The decorations exceeded all of my expectations and I received numerous compliments about how well decorated the venue was and especially how beautiful the ceremony outdoor portion was. All of the staff made everything run so smoothly and made the day perfect! Lead coordinator Valerie was the absolute best! Her personality is as beautiful as the venue. What an amazing wedding day!

    Cross Creek Ranch's reply:

    Hi Alyssa, our hearts are filled with so much joy after reading your kind words! We love the French Country Inn and are so happy to hear that the staff made everything run so smoothly and made the day perfect. We can't thank you enough for leaving this review of our venue. We wish you and Blake a lifetime of love and happiness.

The team at Cross Creek Ranch is so amazing- every time I book a wedding there I always look forward to working with them! They bend over backwards to make sure the wedding day goes smoothly, and the bridal party is happy. Plus, it's such a gorgeous place! Definitely a photographer's dream to photograph there.

Celebrations of Tampa Bay Celebrations of Tampa Bay Wedding Videographers

Although there are many Farm Venues in Tampa Bay Area, none really match the cleanliness, manicured landscaping, and detail of Cross Creek Ranch. Having shot several wedidngs there, I can tell you it is excellent if you want great wedding photography & video, such a variety of natural backgrounds. The hand-on care they give the brides is 5-star! You will have a excellent Country atmosphere, yet without the dust and dirt of many country/farm wedding venues.
