    Second to None!!

    First of all the flexibility regarding The Lightsey Family Ranch wedding venue is second to none. We(she) changed our minds quite often and the staff was always wide open to accommodate!!! The wedding party spent 3 days/nights at the beautiful Ranch/Lodge, what an amazing Lodge, 10 bedroom suites, full time chef TOP SHELF(we wanted this), and an amazing main room, pool table, corn hole, fire pit to mention a few things to do. We wanted to participate in a quail hunt, what an experience, its a gentleman hunt as you ride thru 1,500 acres of pristine south Florida woods. I could go on and on regarding this venue, the quality of service, professionalism are second to none!! If you don't consider this venue and take a ride to meet the owners you are cutting your valued decision short!

    Best Regards and Good Luck,
    Mike M.
