The venue is absolutely breathtaking! We got married in the courtyard of the house. Nicholle was absolutely fabulous to work with. She responded quickly and went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. She conducted our rehearsal as well and it was quick, and it made the ceremony run smoothly. Highly recommended, wish I could relive that day all over again

We had our wedding at the Bonnet House a couple of weekends ago, and it was ABSOLUTELY amazing. Nicholle was great and easy to work with, and everything went more smoothly than I ever could have imagined. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for an outdoor wedding venue in Ft. Lauderdale, I would highly recommend the Bonnet House.

The minute we visited Bonnet House, we knew this was the venue where we wanted to get married. The location is drop dead beautiful. You have the casual, tropical feel from the giant trees and landscaping (and ocean across the street) yet the history and sophistication that comes with the house and the property. The ceremony site is just magical and the reception overlooking the pond with the swans couldn't be more romantic.
Nicholle is a delight to work with and you'll find you won't need to pay extra for a wedding planner (as long as you find a good caterer). Additionally, you won't be breaking the bank for the venue, unlike what you'll find at some of South Florida's other premiere wedding venues.

First of all, let me just start off by saying that the bonnet house is one of the most beautiful places in Fort Lauderdale. It is steeped in history from the 1920's, it feels very old Florida and it is naturally gorgeous with all of the orchids and lush greenery. I am SO glad I had my ceremony and reception here because everything turned out perfectly. Nicholle, the event coordinator, is an absolute delight to work with and really made sure that my vision and desires were executed before the wedding and the day of. She and her team of volunteers really worked hard to make sure I had a perfect day. She was flexible, professional, easy to work with and totally reliable. I cannot say enough good things about the Bonnet house and can't wait to see how my pictures turned out. Thank you Nicholle & company for a perfect wedding day!!!

First of all, the Bonnet House is a beautiful place. It is an old plantation house in Fort Lauderdale; a bit of history in a very busy city. If you ever come to Fort Lauderdale, you have to take a tour of the property. It's wonderful. As soon as I toured the property, I knew that it was the perfect place to get married!

As far as for a wedding, the Bonnet House is a great location. It has so much natural beauty, that there really isn't much additional decor needed. And the people are so helpful. Nicholle was great, very helpful and accomodating (as much as she could considering its a historical property). Volunteers were also very helpful when we were scoping out the place.

On the wedding day, volunteers were on hand, and drove the guests to the wedding site on golf carts, giving mini-tours along the way. (There are also little monkeys on the property, which the guests loved.) Although the interior areas of the house had to be closed during the event (to protect the spaces), they did have one bridal changing room available with a bathroom. And, the lights were on in the protected rooms, so you could see into them from the courtyard (where the cocktail hour was held). We had dinner on a hillside overlooking the pond... it was beautiful. Also, the swans came over with their ducklings for our photos... very cute!

At the end of the night, volunteers were available with their trusty golf carts to bring the guests back to their cars. All in all, the guests loved the experience (and I must say I did too)! I would definitely recommend the Bonnet House. It is a beautiful location, and the staff makes everything run smoothly and accessible. For me, it was a once-in-a-lifetime unforgettable experience, and I wouldn't have done it anywhere else!

The Bonnet House was an incredible location to have an event. Our wedding was beautiful! The Bonnet House staff, particularly Nicholle Maudlin, was on top of every detail of our event and served as a coordinator for our event. She worked well with all of our vendors and suggested vendors that were excellent.

We had our ceremony at the Bonnet House and it was AMAZING! Nicholle, who is their event planner was wonderful to work with. She is extremely professional and knows exactly how to do her job and how to make the bride feel special. The volunteers of the day of the wedding were extremely nice and the whole experience was great. Highly recommend.

This venue is beautiful, stunning and unique. My groom and I decided from day 1 that we didn't want a hotel wedding venue or something cookie-cutter. We visited multiple historic properties, and Bonnet House was the best by far. There are so many things you can do to make the venue your own, and Nicholle is extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. On the day of our wedding, we had so many compliments about the beauty of the venue and the friendliness of their volunteers. If I could do it again, the venue would have stayed exactly the same.

In a nutshell, my wedding was PERFECT because of the venue! I took 1 point off for flexibility because this venue is only for people who appreciate history, natural beauty and old-school Florida. You need to have a vision, imagination and appreciation of the arts in order to love this place as much as I did. The grounds are stunning and it is a great place for an outdoor wedding and reception.
