Wishing Well Barn get a definite YES from us! Michelle and her team are the best at what they do; they made our wedding day absolute perfection. We met a couple of times leading up to the big day, and she was so flexible on her availability and was always so excited for us when we met to plan. Every detail from the moment we got there on the morning of our wedding was thought through and perfect. We so enjoyed the entire wedding day because we knew that we did not have to worry about taking care of anything, Michelle and her team made sure it was done and done right. They worked with our florist to create tables of our dreams, were such gracious hosts to the entire bridal party as we spent all day there getting ready, and were so flexible with every request made along the way. Look no further than here for your wedding venue!

Wishing Well Barn is an incredible venue to have your perfect day. Michelle and her team are incredible, hands down the best! Michelle was made to plan weddings and create incredible memories. When planning my wedding my husband and I did not have to worry about a single thing. Michelle makes planning a wedding easy, fun, and is open to any ideas and suggestions you may have. She wants the day to be your dream day and she will do anything to make sure it is. Even the little details that I wanted, like basil on the napkins wrapped in twine, she took care of. The day of the wedding, couples have separate rooms to get ready in on the property which are so nice and unbelievably convenient. The ceremony was beyond romantic and just gorgeous. The farm/property offers stunning backgrounds for pictures! During the reception her teams works flawlessly and without any missteps. They were all so kind and accommodating to our guest. Some even came out on the dance floor to help guide everyone in a country line dance. One of things that drew us to WWB was it being family owned. We love that we helped support a small family business. If we could give Wishing Well Barn 10 stars, we would have.

Michelle and her team were amazing and made our day super special loved this location !
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!
