About The Retreat at Bradley's Pond

The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond is an event venue in Tallahassee, Florida, that considers itself one of the area’s “best-kept secrets.” Set beneath Spanish moss and oak trees, the rustic venue offers picturesque views of its surroundings, including a private pond, all throughout the year. Couples make use of the manicured grounds for romantic outdoor ceremonies before heading indoors to their spacious pavillion venue for receptions.

Facilities and Capacity

The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond features a climate-controlled (heating and cooling) indoor space that offers 5,000 square feet for you and your guests to utilize; the wrap-around porches add 1,700 square feet of space. Host your engagement party or rehearsal dinner here before the main event, if you’d like. It’s also well-known as a ceremony and reception setting that has a brick pathway leading to the pergola, where ceremonies are traditionally held. The venue may accommodate 170 people with a dance floor and 220 or so without one in the space. The performance cove is a dedicated space for entertainment, whether a DJ or band, and there’s a brick, gas fireplace that could really add to the event, depending on the theme as well as time of year.

Services Offered

The venue welcomes couples to have their pick of planners, florists, bartenders, and licensed caterers, playing up the idea of really customizing the event to their specific preferences. The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond will help with your event layout, and they have an on-site kitchen, which means your caterer will have the necessary equipment. They’ll take care of the tables, chairs, and event setup.

Location

With ample land, couples may walk around the property and work to find optimum photo-op locations. The handicap-accessible facility, located northeast of the heart of Tallahassee, has on-site parking and WiFi.

    Super Helpful

    Both Kathy and Mike have been incredibly helpful as I plan my wedding. Kathy typically emails back within 24 hours and Mike was very informative as he showed me the property!

    The Perfect Venue

    Bradley's Pond was absolutely the perfect venue to get married. There is so much natural beauty from the beautiful giant oak trees, the way the sun sets on the pond, the outdoor balcony, and even inside the venue. The staff are amazing! Kathy was incredibly flexible and so easy to work with! Even after the party Michael took the time to help us clean up, which was a nice surprise! We got so many compliments on our venue, people kept saying we really knocked it out of the park getting married here. We are so thankful to everyone at Bradley's Pond!

    I love photographing weddings at The Retreat at Bradley's Pond! Their staff is friendly and helpful and the space is perfect for outdoor weddings because there is a backup plan for if it rains. The pond is always the focus point for couples when choosing the venue but as a photographer, I'm in the love with the gorgeous trees and colors around the ground that make for perfect wedding pictures. The room indoors is perfect for a simple wedding but is also perfect for elaborate designs. I've photographed both styles and love them equally inside of Bradley's. I always encourage couples to reach out to Amplify Entertainment because they are the best in town but especially in a venue like Bradley's where custom lighting can literally transform the room. I would definitely schedule a tour and consider them for your perfect wedding venue!

    What a serene location to tie the knot! Bradley's has a beautiful outdoor spot for your ceremony, and their huge banquet room is the perfect blank canvas for your reception. It feels like you're a lot further out of town than you really are! Kick back and relax!
