    Breathtaking

    Up the Creek Farms is the only venue I visited and yet I knew instantly that Luke and I would be getting married there! Not only is it a gorgeous venue, but the people, Jess and Brianna and the whole staff, were so sweet and welcoming. Throughout the journey of planning, they were very responsive and helpful. They went above and beyond to make our day the best day ever. They also had many amazing recommendations when we were unsure of which DJ or hair stylist to hire! They were flexible and took every curve ball we threw at them with a smile. Brianna, our wedding coordinator through the venue, put my nervous heart at ease. She did an amazing job alongside the rest of the team to make my Pinterest visions come to life! We also used UTCF for our florals, which were stunning! We also got ready in the Decklan house, which I highly recommend. The day flew by in a blur, but it was gorgeous and stress-free thanks to Up the Creek Farms.

    Beautiful venue, amazing experience!

    I had dreamed about Up the Creek Farms long before I was engaged, and when my fiance finally proposed, I was ready to tour right away. We secured the last Saturday date in Spring and the rest was history. UTCF was the perfect venue right from the start. The packages are easy to understand and navigate, and it has something for everyone. We chose the Designer package, as we wanted 4Rivers for our catering, and everything was stunning. The florals by Becky were to die for (I mean, there were TWELVE peonies in my bouquet alone), and our invitations from Julia were beautiful. Everything from start to finish was procured and curated exactly to our taste and vision. Briana and Jess made sure our day was perfect, and I'm so grateful for everything they did for my husband and me. I highly recommend Up the Creek Farms. They are 100000% worth your investment in the best day of your life.

    What a Venue!!!! Style, Beauty, Comfort, Professionalism and Flare, Up the Creek Farms is the quintessential event venue. The charm, grace and respect that Jessica and Tim exudes are above all the rest. From the first visit, with the Bride, until after the reception, I felt as if I had been creating events at Up the Creek Farms forever. I enjoyed the comradery and teamwork that is takes to make a client"s day extraordinary. Whether you are local to the Melbourne/Valkaria area or shopping for a Southern destination wedding/event, you will find it at Up the Creek Farms. I look forward to recommending Up the Creek Farms, Jessica and Tim and the Live Oak Trees dripping in Spanish Moss to many, many clients. Best of wishes to them and their future!! Now, Let's Make more Pretty!
