    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!
    Sincerely,
    Nate & Jillian

    Loved loved loved this venue we chose for our wedding! It is such a beautiful area and had the "Old Florida" look we were going for. We held the ceremony outside on the lawn behind the lodge and had the reception in the terrace and lobby inside the lodge. Jodi did an awesome job as the site event coordinator as well as the chef. She was very responsive to e-mails and texts and she helped me not only with typical venue details, but also helped with suggestions on my day-of timeline and other little things I was unsure of. Her food was absolutely amazing!! We had steak medallions with caramelized onions & au jus, citrus herb chicken, bacon & brussels sprouts, green beans, roasted sweet potatoes, and a salad. It was all really good, but the steak was out of this world. I had people commenting on how amazing it was all that night and for a few days after!! The balsamic dressing was one of the best I've ever had too. The wait-staff and bar staff were all very attentive and so kind and professional.
    We also blocked off the rooms at the lodge for family and friends to reserve. Most of the people staying there were there for both Friday and Saturday nights, which made it a fun getaway weekend for everyone. We moved up to the conference room upstairs off rooms 101 and 102 and got to catch up with everyone on Friday after the rehearsal dinner (which we held off-site) and after the reception. Because we had all the rooms reserved for guests at our party, they were okay with us staying up and hanging out much later than the reception went. The rooms are very nice and I just love the antique feel and there are no TV's, which I love since it encourages everyone to hang out. During the day, a lot of the guests that were staying on-site went on the boat ride or went swimming.
    I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat. We and our guests had an awesome time and it all went just perfectly!
