    Mother of bride

    This was my third wedding, as I have three daughters. The people at Up the Creek Farms were the best by far to work with throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding! Their full service is extraordinary. Jess and Brianna are the best people! I can鈥檛 say enough about all they did to make the wedding wonderful. A few details, Jess steamed every dress the morning of the wedding and provided delicious quiche and a gorgeous charcuterie platter for the bride and bridesmaids ! Brianna not only carefully orchestrated every detail, she also packed everything up and put it in our car -so when the wedding was over all we had to do was drive home! At the last minute rain caused some changes in plans and they did so much behind the scenes to make the event spectacular. Food was delicious and flowers were gorgeous. The stay at the Decklan house was the best experience ever for the bride and bridesmaids. Can鈥檛 say enough positive things about our experience!

    Brevard鈥檚 Most Beautiful Venue!

    The team at Up the Creek are absolutely AMAZING! I don鈥檛 even know where to start!

    For years I had told my sister, I鈥檓 going to get married at Up the Creek. The venue is literally out of a wedding magazine and truly highlights Florida鈥檚 natural beauty.

    I was that extremely overwhelmed bride, I second guessed my decisions because I was so worried I had made the wrong one. Jess and Bri were a god send and truly made everything absolutely perfect! I am so grateful for the team at Up the Creek! And cannot thank them enough for making our big day absolutely PERFECT!

    Up the Creek Farms's reply:

    Thank you so much Chrissy!
    You all were so fun and we wish you all many years of love

    The best venue and team for the perfect wedding!

    Wow. This is by far the best venue and team if you want a perfect wedding day. Firstly, they鈥檙e an all inclusive venue which means they are a well oiled machine when it comes to wedding day logistics and managing all the vendors. Not to mention the detailed planning for the months leading up to the big day. I had a few unique asks and they made my dream a reality. (I.e. a first look with our ring bearer: our Australian Shepherd!)
    A big shout out to Briana Hoover for being the day-of maestro! Especially when a typical Florida afternoon thunderstorm threatened our outside ceremony, Briana expertly conducted the pre-ceremony events, rallies the guests and we were able to have our outside ceremony just in time!
    The day was flawless. A big, big thank you to the UTCF team for everything!!!

    Thank you so much Annick! I enjoyed working with you and your family so much

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!
