Serving couples in the Tampa area, Sackett Ranch is a wedding venue located in Lakeland, Florida. Situated five minutes from Polk Parkway, this 12-acre farm provides a convenient yet private location for all celebrations of love. The working ranch is family owned and operated, who built their farmhouse and moved onto the property in 2011. After their son and daughter-in-law hosted their wedding on the grounds, the family constructed the barn and decided to turn it into an event space. They invite soon-to-be-newlyweds to celebrate their momentous occasion of love in this rustic, rural, and elegant setting.
Facilities and Capacity
The adorable 5,000-square-foot red barn at Sackett Ranch can accommodate up to 200 people for dinner and dancing. This cavernous building features exposed beams, a lofted ceiling, unique lighting fixtures, a built-in bar, and a white hearth. The interior is decorated with retro accents including wooden wheels, oak barrels, settees, cowhide sofa chairs, and vintage white doors. An outdoor ceremony spot is provided underneath the draping Southern trees, which create a romantic and secluded atmosphere. A newly-designed stone pathway and dais make this a picture-perfect location for tying the knot with friends and family gathered around. The grounds offer plenty of room for setting up corn hole and other lawn games, which guests can enjoy together late into the night. A covered buggy is also available, and makes for an excellent and distinctive accompaniment to photographs. Two get-ready suites are also included for preparing for the big day, both of which are equipped with air conditioning. These rooms feature comfortable and antique furniture, large wooden tables, cowhide rugs, and vanities.
Rental of Sackett Ranch comes with use of the facilities and grounds from 8am to 11:30pm on the date of the wedding. Rehearsals can be accommodated between 1pm and 9pm on the day prior to the event. Couples can also use this time to set up and decorate the space, while the venue staff will assist with setup of tables and chairs. A list of partners is provided for everything from DJs and photographers to caterers and bartenders, but couples are also welcome to choose their own. For larger events, the venue includes tents that can be set up on the lawns and protect from any inclement weather.

Sackett Ranch provides that rustic and country feel you want. They were reasonably priced and included round tables, chairs, spindles, high tops and rectangle tables. There is a bride and groom suit and men/women restrooms. Plenty of parking available and can hold as many as 300 guests or less. It was a blank slate type of venue which I liked. I was able to bring my own visions to life. It is air conditioned and has fans/heaters available, fire pit, outdoor wedding arch, ADA bathrooms for men and women, and a nice country setting on 20 acres of land. It was a perfect day!! And the venue experience left us very happy!Sent on 01/26/2016
