Gorgeous venue with endless options!
I'll start off by stating that I've been in the events industry for over 8 years and have seen dozens of venues. Walton House is the perfect garden/tropic/boho/fairytale outdoor venue in South Florida! This is not just a pretty location - it's an experience for your guests! From the beautiful cottage style bridal suite, to their huge lagoon with swans and the many birds and wildlife (including flamingoes and lemurs). My event was fully outdoor and the intimate reception under their trees was magical with string lights all around (included). They also include a bonfire with seating. Frank was very easy to work with and the venue offers a lot of flexibility in terms of hours and use of the property. Our day was a dream!Sent on 01/11/2021

Breathtaking and Beautiful Venue- one of a kind
The most beautiful romantic breathtaking venue! The Historic Walton House is beyond everything a bride and groom dream of for their wedding day. This venue has beautiful and well-kept greenery around the entire property; it has gorgeous flowers, exotic animals and the perfect landscape to capture the most unique photos. The bridal suite is one of a kind, with its historical and chic decorations- it feels like something out of a movie. Everyone that attended the wedding was in awe and amazed with the entire venue. We kept getting complimented on how beautiful and unique the venue was- definitely a memorable wedding. My husband and I both wanted an outdoor/indoor wedding and The Historic Walton House was everything we dreamed of. We had never seen a venue like this in South Florida.Sent on 11/09/2020
We did our ceremony outdoors under a beautiful crafted arch already installed in the property. The greenery and the flowers around it made it look so magical. Our reception was held half outdoors and the dancing was done indoors in their stunning farmhouse. I loved that the venue has both outdoor and indoor options. There are so many beautiful areas of the venue to choose from and so much for the guests to enjoy! Our guests were entertained the entire time!
My wedding day was a dream come true! My husband and I are so thankful for Frank, the owner of Walton House. He made us feel welcomed and greeted us with so much love. From the moment we met Frank, we were so moved by his story, the history of this venue and we immediately fell in love with the property. He was very attentive and available to answer any questions at all times.
We met Frank through an organization called Wish Upon a Wedding- It grants weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illnesses or life altering health circumstances. I have been battling brain cancer the past 2 years and having a wedding at this venue was a wish come true. It everything I always dreamed of. Frank was contacted by the organization and he immediately jumped on board and allowed us to host our wedding at his gorgeous venue. He has an enormous heart and we are so thankful that he opened up this gem for us to celebrate with family and friends. We are forever grateful!
We love the Walton House! Beautiful spot for your wedding that yours guest are sure to never forget!!
Frank from the Walton house has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is The Walton House one of the most breathtaking enchanting venues that I have seen, but they bend backwards to accommodate any of the requests we had setting up the tables and chairs for the wedding.
