I knew from the moment I stepped foot through the door of Golden Ocala that this was my venue.Sent on 04/27/2017
I'd spent a lot of time searching venues and going on tours and nothing was cutting it. I was really beginning to think my dream venue was going to be out of budget and I was going to have to settle. Then, I took a chance on a venue that was out of the way and boy was that the best decision I ever made. This place is seriously a hidden gem. From the grand entrance and beautiful tree-lined road to the club house, it definitely packs a punch. Don't even get me started on the chandeliers in the ballroom and the stunning staircase leading down from the balcony. It's classy, elegant and just jaw-dropping. It screams luxury wedding, but doesn't carry that price tag. My guests could NOT stop talking about how gorgeous this place was and how it was one of the most beautiful venues they'd seen!
In addition, to the visuals, the staff at Golden Ocala were amazing and super accommodating. About 6 months out, our point of contact there left and Robert stepped in to take over the arrangements. He helped us navigate planning a destination wedding and was very helpful with timing, addressing concerns etc. Our day-of coordinator Nikki was also incredible. She was so funny and exactly what I needed to keep calm and keep the day moving. She fixed my hair when my comb fell out and messed up my updo. She made sure I had drinks on hand throughout the day and took no sass from my mother and now mother in law when they were getting in the way. The food was delicious. They even made separate dishes for guests with dietary requirements and different dishes for my husband and I without any hesitation.
If I had to do my wedding all over again, I would choose Golden Ocala every time.
LOVE working at this location. Not only is it a beautiful location in NCFL to get married but the staff is AMAZING to work with. Absolutely adore when I get to do a wedding at Golden Ocala!!!
Golden Ocala is one of FAVORITE places to shoot in Central Florida. The venue is breathtaking and very well maintained. The staff and personnel are very professional and polite and the food look fantastic!
