    Absolutely incredible!

    I cannot say enough great things about The Retreat at Bradley's Pond. After researching wedding venue after wedding venue, we met with Michael for a tour and knew this would be the place we got married. All throughout the planning process Michael had fantastic communication and truly went above and beyond. We got married in March (aka pollen season in Florida) and Michael came back back out to the venue just a couple hours before the ceremony began to blow off the chairs to make sure they were clean. Thank you to The Retreat at Bradley's Pond for being so wonderful!

    The must have venue

    The Retreat was such an incredibly beautiful location. The options of indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception was PERFECT. Mike, the owner/manager went above and beyond to ensure that every question and need is answered. They assisted in any need to accommodate during the pandemic to ensure all were safe. We were given incredible access to the venue anytime, to go out and figure out logistics. Truly a venue that lets you be the crazy bride, or in our case, crazy mother, and never judged me. Lol. I loved this location. This family has taken incredible pride in the venue and it really shows. The photos are fantastic.

    Easy to work with.

    If you want a beautiful venue where you can bring your own caterer, bartender, servers, etc without having to go with a whole package deal like some locations, then you’ll be delighted with Bradley’s. Mike and Kathy are kind, easy to work with and make time to answer questions and show you around. Bradley’s has tables and chairs on site, a gorgeous kitchen, plenty of stalls in the restroom, white chairs you can rent out for the ceremony itself for a very reasonable fee, a room to get ready or stash the bride in while guests arrive and best of all, an absolutely picturesque environment. Outside is a lovely pond, an archway and a beautiful wraparound porch that’s perfect for the cocktail hour or to escape the hustle and bustle for a few minutes. The inside space can fit quite a good number of guests, and the tables and chairs are of nice quality. Our photographs turned out beautifully against the gorgeous, natural landscape.

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!
