About

On WeddingWire since 2008

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.

Facilities and Capacity

Cross Creek Ranch is a grand event venue with a capacity of 150 guests and a host of areas for celebrations of all kinds. Forever can start with a ceremony at The Carriage House, a classic wooden barn with dainty French windows, high ceilings draped in twinkling lights, and plenty of floor space for a large gathering. 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 Oak Hall is a spacious, 12-foot-high, air-conditioned modern barn 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.

Enjoy your day, and let Cross Creek handle the rest

Cross Creek is a literal dream come true. At first we were a little intimidated by the price, but everything included and the exceptional service we received made it absolutely worth every penny. The package included catering as well as floral, and you can feel confident in these as well as their other preferred vendors. This venue is able to transform to match whatever style you can imagine. Traditional or themed, the space is clean and classy and their designers will listen to what YOU want and tailor every detail down to the furniture in order to fully realize your vision. The staff is attentive, friendly, and of course professional. They made us feel special with each interaction. Holly is amazing. There were some staff changes during our planning, but we were so happy to have our event land in her exceptionally capable hands. Her warm enthusiasm matched our excitement and it is clear she is passionate about what she does. Cross Creek set a high standard for quality and made the whole planning process as well as the event itself practically stress-free! Overall we felt truly pampered, and my mother highly recommends them: so you can focus on enjoying your special day, and confidently let Cross Creek handle the rest.

Wedding Review

My son and now daughter-in-law were married at cross creek ranch at the French Country Inn. I can’t say enough about how wonderful
everything and everyone was. The wedding planner was very communicative with the schedule and answered all questions. Some highlights were thinking to have tissue packets in the seats for the two moms and having drinks and cocktail bites down to the wedding party and parents during photos. Also, I had to contact Valerie the next day about a potential misplaced suit jacket and she very responsive and helpful. Again, everyone had a fabulous time and I would highly recommend!

Wonderful experience

My daughter got married at Cross Creek on December 2nd. The day and the months leading up to it went flawlessly. Her coordinator was absolutely God sent. Thank you, Valerie and you entire team. Could not have asked for a better time. My family and friends adore you and hope to remain in touch. Thank y’all so much.

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.

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.
