When we went to tour it was immediately love at first site. We will admit that from the photos online it didn’t seem that great, but as soon as we walked through the front doors we knew that was our venue. It’s an antique “Savannah-style” estate complete with antique furniture and an old-time feel. It is very affordable, including the catering and bar services. It’s also a bed and breakfast, so you have the option of renting out all 6 rooms in the house for the night with FREE breakfast for those staying the night! They have a large, newly finished courtyard in the back that is perfect for cocktail hour. They are very accommodating with special requests and Angie is a fantastic person to work with. We are very excited to host our special day here!! The price we listed includes buffet dinner and premium open bar, tables, ceremony chairs, linens, 5 vendor meals, 1 overnight stay for bride and groom, venue, cake cutting, etc.Sent on 09/01/2018

The Dr. Phillips House is magical!
We worked with Angie in hosting our wedding for circa 90 people at the wonderful Dr. Phillips House and the whole process was completely seamless.
We first visited the house as one of four potential destination venues we were taking a look at in the Orlando area and it was truly love at first sight. This venue has everything and we fell in love with the home's classic architecture paired with its dreamy, romantic outdoor spaces - it's beautiful and truly comes alive at night with with twinkle lights.
The service throughout the evening of our wedding was impeccable and the free-flowing layout of the home is so perfect for mingling no matter how your guests choose to spend their time at your wedding.
Our one reservation about this venue was its proximity to the highway but we didn't notice the noise at all once the ceremony had begun and the music played. Thank you to Angie and the team for providing us the wedding venue of our dreams. We cannot imagine a more perfect spot to have had our wedding.Sent on 01/02/2020
