Our outdoor wedding at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates was just as we wanted it to be. Cori is a delight to work with, and her suggestions made it so easy for us to plan. All the vendors we used were suggested by Cori and it was a flawless event. I could not be happier.

Ceremony & Reception Venue
We had the most amazing destination wedding hosted at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates! The staff did an amazing job with everything: from making sure that every last detail was perfect, to helping us coordinate rehearsals and events when we really had no clue what we were looking for at times! The event coordinators really made us feel like they love their job and thoroughly enjoy being a huge part of the wedding. We were well taken care of and were forgiven on more than one occasion for running slightly behind schedule! The price for the venue was very reasonable for such a gorgeous historic location, we were beyond excited when we chose the Estates for our venue. From the very beginning, the coordinators did a phenomenal job of keeping in contact with us, and supplying us with all of the information we would need to organize our special day, even helping us come up with clever ways to reduce our expenses. All of the vendors we used for our other services were from the Estates' list of approved vendors, (all of whom were also very reasonably priced for the amazing services they provided) which made our lives that much easier because they all knew each other and knew exactly how to work with our venue. Our wedding day here was absolutely perfect, it was everything we had dreamed of and were looking for, and I would highly recommend this gorgeous venue in such a beautiful location to any couple!
We have shot many portrait sessions, weddings and other events at this location. It is always a pleasure to work with the staff at the Edison & Ford Estate. The property is kept beautiful year round, its hard to take a bad photo while at this location.
