About Estate on the Halifax

Estate on the Halifax is a 10-acre property and wedding venue located in Port Orange, Florida. Its versatile event spaces are set amongst exquisite landscaping that provides an escape from the hurried bustle of everyday life. The tranquil grounds, idyllic water features, and sophisticated spaces create a memorable backdrop well suited to milestone moments.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can begin their marital journey in The Chapel, a historic building constructed in 1897. Originally a church, the team at Estate on the Halifax had it renovated while preserving many of its original details. It features a bell tower with a bell forged in 1893 which rings out after each couple’s ceremony is complete. Vow exchanges can also occur in the Gazebo. This classic structure is nestled by the lake with a fountain bubbling nearby. It can be decorated with flowers and drapery, allowing couples to add their own touch. The old oak trees that surround the area offer shade from the Florida sun. After the couple has expressed their love and commitment, they and their guests can move to Snow White’s Cottage. This charming building was constructed in the 1930s and it is enveloped by whimsical gardens. The koi ponds, water wheel, and stream enhance the storybook vibe that transports guests as they mingle. From here, newlyweds and their loved ones can venture to the Tavern, which was built in the 1920s. The indoor setting can accommodate guest lists of up to 200 people and has a welcoming interior with natural wood tones throughout. After, couples and their guests can retire to Agatha’s Guesthouse or The Estate House. Agatha’s can also be used for dressing rooms and has a full kitchen, indoor pool, and other amenities that make it a relaxing retreat, which sleeps six. The larger Estate House can accommodate up to 12 guests for overnight stays. Its classic architecture provides character to the property.

Services Offered

The team at Estate on the Halifax offers a number of event rentals for your convenience. This includes the option of white resin chairs that are suitable for outside gatherings. The rental of the Tavern also includes tables and chairs. For ceremony music, the Chapel has an instrument that can be played as a piano or an organ, along with a CD player and speakers. The staff also offers setup and cleanup services and welcomes outside vendors.
