Wild Acres Villa is one of the most unique, special places to get married in Central Florida. My now-husband and I searched for weeks trying to find a place that would work within our budget and still deliver the magical feel that we were looking for. We stumbled upon it on accident and I instantly fell in love. It was quite a drive for our guests but when they arrived, they knew why we'd picked it! Lad, Andrea, and the rest of the staff were godsends and worked with all of the requests I had. They were very helpful and responsive to all of my communication too. The venue itself is beautiful during the daytime but at nighttime it comes alive. The outdoor lighting is simply beautiful and creates an ambience that feels dream-like. The house itself is a feast for the eyes - it's incredibly interesting to look at and full of antiques and beautiful stained glass, all curated by the owners. It's also provides a respite for people to enjoy the air conditioning if it's a hot day. If you're looking for a venue that's off the beaten path, private, personal, and beautiful, this is your place!Sent on 10/14/2016

Wild Acres Villa is a beautiful venue. As soon as I visited, I fell in love with the small house on the property - with exposed wood beams, stain glass windows, and design elements that blend periods of history from medieval to victorian, each room in the house is a treat to explore. We took a majority of our wedding pictures at various locations around the house, using everything from the beautiful stairs with lots of natural light to the stained glass windows as a background for our pictures. The grounds also offer amazing picture opportunities, from palm trees, to a small lake, to a bamboo tunnel that our photographer loved.Sent on 04/27/2015
The staff was amazing. They were willing to accommodate just about any request! The tents they use for the reception are good quality and the lighting they set up adds great ambiance. Despite the fact that the sky exploded in a downpour halfway through our reception (unfortunately ruining our plans for a bonfire - which the owner, Lad, took pride in his ability to create), the guests were still able enjoy the reception between space in the tents and space in the small house. Two of the young men who work for the venue even ran guests back and forth between the tent and the house with umbrellas!
This is an exceptional venue well worth the cost for a beautiful and unique outdoor wedding. I highly recommend anyone who longs for an outdoor ceremony and reception, or anyone with a more offbeat or unique style, to look into Wild Acres!

Beautiful!!!! That was my wedding day, lad and team were amazing and down to earth! I had visited so many venues looking for the perfect outdoor venue! And when I say many I mean drove all over the state of central and south Florida, nothing compared to this hidden gem. Imagine middle of nowhere and pull up to this dirt road, you have no idea what you are getting to? What's at the end of this dirt path? You then come to this gate and after that green fields, tour path turns into a tunnel formed my trees and at the end you pull into vegetation. That's not the end, you walk out and soon you come across this woodsy European villa that came out of a fairy tail. Behind just green fields and a lake. It was magical and at once I knew this was my place !! My search was over. Lad was so understanding and patient with me, my budget was very big but his prices are reasonable! I have already recommended this venue to a stranger I met at a shop and would recommend this place to everyone that is getting married!! It is such a beautiful place and on the day of the wedding, words could not explain how magical it looked and how my vision came into play!!! Thanks lad!!!Sent on 07/01/2015
