Organized, professional, friendly, knowledgeable and all of the inclusive services you could imagine. Giselle took my vision for our wedding and branched it out. Our wedding day was truly memorable. Giselle and Casa Lantana is certainly one of Tampa Bay’s best kept secret.Sent on 12/28/2012

‘We really enjoyed working with you and felt you had heard Lindsay and Spencer. I thought the flowers were amazing!! They were everything we had hoped for. The venue looked beautiful, was clean and tidy. The vendors seemed to have a full understanding of what to do and where to go. All our guests were amazed by the venue and asked how we found it. They loved it, the atmosphere, the food, music. The photographers have produced some beautiful pictures. Again, and again, we loved you and the work you did for us!! We loved Lois and her flowers!! We were very happy with the outcome. We will recommend Casa Lantana without a doubt!! Many, many thanks for a beautiful memory.’Sent on 12/20/2012

I recently held my daughter’s surprise birthday English Tea at Casa Lantana. Proprietor Giselle goes out of her way to make your event exactly as you want it to be. She is professional, friendly, and warm; but most of all, she is extremely accommodating and gives wonderful advice! The event was a huge success and everything went off spectacularly. I, my daughter, and our guests were very pleased. We felt pampered, yet elegant.Sent on 04/04/2011
Casa Lantana is roomy and large. It has fireplaces, a media room, a game room with bar and pool table, and a screened in lanai with a pool to name just a few of the offerings.
The venue is closed to the public, and located on private property. Giselle works through appointment only and it was reassuring knowing the grounds and Giselle was all ours for the afternoon. There was no worry that people would suddenly appear and interrupt our party.
I first learned of Casa Lantana when I was a guest at a 25 year surprise anniversary celebration held there. I was so impressed with the “feel” of the service and the venue that I immediately spoke with Giselle about having my own event there. I can’t wait to use Giselle and Casa Lantana again. Maybe my daughter will be getting married soon…

We have mixed opinions. Giselle, the venue coordinator, is very flexible on allowing you to bring your own vendors and work around your schedule. She is also responsive and always replies to your e-mails. Overall, she is good at doing what she does. The venue is beautiful and it has a lot to offer, in providing a good inside/outside atmosphere, comfortable bridal and groom suites, and various options for your reception and ceremony.Sent on 01/12/2015
However, she is not flexible at all with duration of your event, which was pretty frustrating for us. The venue, which we felt was already over priced, charges an additional $1,000+ per hour, which does not include any of the services (food, drinks, etc.) Actually, having the bartender stick around would be ¼ of the price of the venue, so you wonder what you’re paying so much for in the venue extension. For someone who wants to have a longer celebration with friends and family on your big day, this venue may not be the best for you, as she is pretty adamant about sticking to your “5 hour” rule.
Though, overall, I would say that we had a beautiful night at a beautiful venue and Giselle goes out of her way to accommodate and assist, aside from being very inflexible with times you can use the venue. We do feel that it is overpriced, as when you break down what you are paying for a lot of it just goes to the venue and you’re not entirely sure what you’re paying for, but it is a good option to have the all inclusive package when you don’t want to sweat about communicating with vendors, etc. The venue was clean, well maintained, and had everything you need for a celebration. At night the venue is truly beautiful, with the lighting and the old oak trees.
That said, we do NOT recommend the DJ that she has in her all inclusive package. Unfortunately, we were less than pleased with the DJ, as we found that he generally didn’t listen to what we asked him to play during throughout the night. While he did play all of the

The overall services provided were amazing! The venue is gorgeous and offered options for guests of all ages. Giselle did everything she could to make sure I was happy and always had comforting advice whenever I felt stressed. Basically I could not have asked for a more perfect venue for my special day :)Sent on 08/03/2010
