Wakulla Springs Lodge is a beautiful, well maintained Spanish style lodge built in the 1930s. They have gorgeous areas indoors and out for a ceremony, and are very flexible about setting up last minute if there are weather concerns. There is room for about 100 guests in the reception area. It was really nice to have the ceremony, reception, lodging, and weekend activities all in one place. The staff is amazing, and their prices can't be beat. There is a curfew for the end of the party(so the dj had to stop), but the staff let us sit around the tables, talking and drinking wine, until the wee hours off the morning. I could not say better things about Wakulla; they made our wedding day so enjoyable!Sent on 07/07/2009

Wakulla Springs is a GREAT place for a unique wedding. We had a very small ceremony and dinner. Everyone I spoke to to coordinate the event was helpful and responsive. This venue is very easy to work with. Our ceremony ended up being very cheap, but that's mostly because of how small our wedding was (less than 20 people total). A larger wedding was happening the same weekend and I could tell it was really nice, too. You have a lot of flexibility I think. Anyway, the people here are great, and any time of year it's just beautiful. I recommend 100%!Sent on 05/01/2016

We got ready for our wedding as well as hosted our reception at the Wakulla Springs Lodge. It is a wonderful place to celebrate at! The venue is very charming and romantic, and is a great place for a vintage feel to your wedding. They were extremely accommodating with every part of the process. It also made the planning simpler on our end because linens, tables, place settings, silverware, and chairs are all things that Lodge provides when you have your event there. The food was delicious and it received many compliments. The event coordinator Sarah, is terrific at her job and went above and beyond to make our day exceed our expectations. We are forever grateful for her and the team at Wakulla for the excellent service and for helping make our most special day possible. Thank you!Sent on 03/18/2016
