Monticello Opera House is an elegant event venue in Monticello, Florida, that promotes arts and culture. It is a historic space that’s inclusive and part of the community and would be a prime place to tie the knot, given that it’s only 28 miles northeast of Tallahassee and that it’s a Southern mainstay.

The staff at the Monticello Opera House were more than accommodating to our various needs as we ended up using the entire space (theater for ceremony, courtyard for cocktail hour, main banquet room for dinner/reception). Javier was great at helping figure out seating arrangements and overall flow of how everything could be worked in such a space. We met a few days before and he had a lot of help who were putting on chair covers, helping with lighting, sprucing up the courtyard, etc. On the wedding day the entire staff were very helpful in making the overall event fun and smooth in operation.

The Monticello Opera House was a perfect venue for our wedding. In the middle of August in Florida it's tough to find a reasonably priced indoor venue and this was perfect. There was plenty of room and working with the staff was easy. Plus I just love the look of the theater and building. The pictures were fabulous because of the building.

Loved the Opera House! Had just the old time feel I was looking for. The reception area has wood floors and we had our ceremony in the garden. The price was so affordable. Cheapest place in north Florida and beautiful. Loved it.
