History

In the 1930s, Albert H. Pless bought over 4,000 acres in Plant City, Florida for farming and cattle with his wife, Kathleen. They built their home out of stone, and the wood on the inside was made from the cypress and cedar trees on their properties. Kathleen dedicated herself to planting flower beds all throughout her new yard. In 1970, they had to sell off most of their properties and, when they passed away, the property was left unmaintained. In 2013, their granddaughter, Peggy A. Waller, repurchased her grandparents home and brought beauty back into the yard, then opened up the homestead to the public.

    Everything We Wanted

    A wonderful experience from start to finish! And by "start," I mean the all-important consulting and coordinating of details well in advance by Charolette and Marci. As the bride's mother, working with such professionals is a huge advantage if you've never planned a wedding before. And then they have the creativity and skill to be flexible with some last-minute adjustments! Behind the scenes, their attention to privacy and security are notable, and what fun for bridesmaids and groomsmen to enjoy all-day service in the two well-stocked prep/dressing rooms. My entire family was so relaxed and confident that our 120-person Thanksgiving Weekend event would be the memorable evening it became!

    Couldn't have asked for a better venue!

    Where do I even begin?! Our wedding at Kathleen's Garden was an absolute dream. From the beautiful grounds filled with aging oak trees and lucious gardens to the attentive staff attending to ALL of the details, my husband and I are so, so satisfied.. 110%! Marci was our event and day-of- coordinator, along with Traci as the head decorator, and they both more than exceeded our expectations. We were planning our wedding from Hawaii all the while we were also planning our move back to the East coast (yikes!), but these ladies were both so communicative and allowed family members to visit and make necessary decisions on our behalf. Traci effortlessly brought our vision to life, and then some. I was finally able to visit the venue myself for our final decoration appointment roughly one month before the wedding and I was entirely blown away.. she is surely talented in her craft! & Marci.. I literally did not worry about a single thing on the day of our wedding and it. was. perfect! My girls (& my husband's guys.. can't forget about them) were spoiled with food and drinks the entire morning and afternoon of the wedding while Marci took care of each and every single detail. We were told by several of our guests that our wedding was the most beautiful they had ever attended, and I owe so much of that to Kathleen's Garden. We are forever grateful & will always look back on our wedding day with happy hearts :)

    Oh! You will not find a more beautiful location for photos in this area than at Kathleen's Garden. We have received a few sneaks and ugh, that lighting as it peaks through the tall oaks and those colors?! STUNNING!
