    Dream venue

    This was the first and only venue we toured, because it's perfect. The team has thought of everything you could imagine as far as wedding details and accommodations. Cara is wonderful to work with and super responsive and helpful. We reserved the whole property and had plenty of space and time to get ready and celebrate! (one tip- ask where the breaker box is in Agatha's guesthouse. It's an old building and our hairdryers flipped the breaker but we couldn't find it to fix, so were left without AC and power in the main bedroom for some time!) All our guests raved about how beautiful the location was, it hardly needs any additional decor! It's like it's own secluded world inside Port Orange. The staff during the wedding was great too. Very organized and professional. Highly recommend!

    The Estate on the Halifax is a place like no other!! As soon as we toured the venue we knew this is where we wanted our wedding to be. Cara was extremely helpful and always very quick to respond to our many questions. She even responded while she was away on maternity leave, which was highly unexpected. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous!!!! There are so many unique and beautiful places throughout the property for amazing pictures. We have guests still commenting on how beautiful our wedding was there. Not only is the Estate a beautiful place to get married, but they also go above and beyond what I thought a venue would be. Our day was amazing and that was mainly due to the staff. We also used a lot of their preferred vendors and they were all fantastic to work with!!! The Estate has everything you could ever dream of in a wedding venue.
