This venue is GORGEOUS!!! I was set on an outdoor ceremony but really wanted a indoor reception, this place was able to give me both all on the same property. The ceremony site under the oak tress is absolutely stunning, and the boat house is rustic and elegant at the same time. You really can be as formal or informal as you like with this venue. If you're thinking about getting the package without the coordinator DONT. Jess was amazing to work with through the beginning planning steps and was always professional and willing to go above and beyond to help and answer any questions. Our coordinator Kristen was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I have no idea how I would have done it without her. She was so organized and had every detail handled down to a printed timeline telling everyone in the bridal party where to be and when to be there. There were some snafus I found out about the next day, but I was blissfully unaware because Kristen handled everything. We have gotten so many compliments on how helpful she was from our guests and our course a ton of compliments on how gorgeous the venue was! I cannot believe this amazing venue is tucked away in Valkaria, so happy we found it because it was perfect for our day. Thank you SO SO much Jess and Kristen!!Sent on 10/16/2016

I cannot speak highly enough of Jess and her team at UTCF. These are people who really really love what they do, and it shows. From the time we booked with UTCF and the little care package they sent up until our wedding day last week, we were so impressed with the attention to detail and how much these gals (and guy!) really care about their couples. They went so above and beyond - I found out the night of our wedding they built a custom donut wall / desert table for us! Also - big ups to Kiera who was our wedding coordinator who totally put us at east the last few weeks prior to the big day and was a total boss the day of. She. Is. Awesome.Sent on 03/04/2019
And as for the venue itself... it's absolutely magical. This was a destination wedding for many of our guests, and we had so many complements on the location and how beautiful the property is. (The Decklan house is totally worth splurging on for pre-wedding hangs btw as it is a gorgeous location for photos, and is really jaw-dropping in the way it's decorated.) Basically, we had the best time ever and will always remember our wedding weekend at UTCF as something real special. WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!
