Perfect day with a perfect team!
Michelle is AMAZING! She handles everything from start to finish and makes sure your day is perfect. The venue is absolutely beautiful. My husband and I, as well as my parents, had people coming up to us all night complementing the venue and decor. I sent Michelle a few pintrest post and let her do the rest and it was even better then I could imagine. She is very responsive, kind, and makes sure everyone is held accountable for their task to make your day perfect. This includes, guest, wedding party, and vendors. On our wedding day there was a group of family members coming into the bridal cottage to say hello and hang out before the ceremony. I was overwhelmed. She looked at me and knew I needed a moment so she ask if I wanted them to leave. I said yes and within seconds they were gone. She pays attention, she cares, she is supportive, she makes your dream come true. If you have the chance to use this venue I HIGHLY recommend itSent on 09/18/2020

What a unique Barn venue and they have thought of everything to make your day perfect. Michelle is so accommodating and personable. The whole staff have always been a pleasure to work with.
Wishin Well Barn is by far one of our favorite venues of Central Florida. Michelle and her team will make sure you have an extraordinary wedding. They are prepared, organized, and will make sure all vendors are on the same page. With a fully functioning cattle ranch with adjacent blueberry fields and a beautiful rustic old barn, you won't have to look anywhere else.
This is most definitely one of my favorite venues to photograph at. I have been complimented highly on certain photos of mine that were taken there. From the golden blueberry fields to the mirror trees, there are so many scenic spots to take photos. Above that, Michelle is so helpful and kind. They do a great job maintaining the barn and the grounds. Love this venue!
