Our wedding was absolutely stunning at the Cypress Grove Estate House! Cara and the Big City team were so wonderful to work with. Throughout the planning process, they were flexible with working with us being that we live in Jacksonville and were getting married in Orlando. Being able to have all aspects of our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception) in one venue spot was a huge bonus for us. Our guests have not stopped raving about how beautiful the setting was and how helpful the staff was the evening of our wedding. Everything ran so smoothly, my husband and I as well as, our families (mainly the mommies) were able to enjnoy the festivities and not worry about a thing.

Cypress Grove is truly a picture perfect location for your wedding with a wonderful staff as well!!! Thank you thank you for everything!!!

We could not have been happier with our wedding experience at Cypress Grove. The venue itself is stunning, immaculately kept, and a beautiful gem in the heart of Central Florida. We were well-taken care of the entire time by Cara Irvin and the Big City Catering staff. Everyone kept what we as a couple wanted in mind and worked diligently to execute our vision. I would recommend them (& have!) to any bride and their family. Thank you again to Cypress Grove!

We booked this venue for our ceremony through Carrie from Destination Occasion. The estate house and grounds are amazing. Our photo's look fantastic and there were plenty of opportunities for some great photo's. The house is lovely and provided a lovely break from the Florida sunshine. There was plenty of room for our guests and the refreshments were provided on time and as planned. We would recommend this venue which has many options depending on the weather. Luckily we had sunshine on our day so was lucky enough to use the lakeside gazebo and grounds.

Cypress Grove is a wonderful wedding venue! It is breathtaking. There are a ton of options of where you can have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The staff is flexible and will work with you to ensure that it is a wonderful day. It rained unexpectedly on my wedding day and we had to move everything inside. While not ideal, Cypress Grove made it work and it was still a great location for a wedding. Big City Catering is fantastic and I had many guest tell me how they were surprised that wedding food could taste so good. You will not be disappointed with Cypress Grove for your wedding venue.

As soon we toured the grounds at the estate house, we knew this was the perfect place for our wedding. Its beautiful setting made for an amazing backdrop for the ceremony. The amphitheater was perfect for the reception too. Our pictures will be great!! The layout was able to accommodate everyone comfortably (approx 100 people), and had great energy.
Cara was my contact there, and she was absolutely wonderful. Really, I could not have done this without her! She was there every step of the way, answering all of my many questions in a timely manner. She made my planning process easy!
Every one of our guests commented on how absolutely gorgeous the setting was. This is definitely a hidden gem in the middle of Orlando.

I couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding! The Estate House was absolutely gorgeous, and not a thing went wrong. Even though the venue is in a park, the staff made sure to keep onlookers away from the house during the ceremony and reception. Everyone was on their toes and made sure that our day was the best we'd ever had!

I wanted a Southern wedding and this venue provided a stunning location for just that! The entrance roadway is so elegant, the mossy trees guiding your way through the park to the old Florida house. The natural setting on quiet Lake Jessamine provides a perfect back drop for the ceremony. The elevated stage surrounding the dinner table and dance floor were perfect for my band and head table! Kimberly was my event coordinator and she was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive whenever I had a question or request and was a huge help with getting exactly the food I wanted. So many of my guests complimented me on the venue, it was absolutely perfect in every way!

The estate house was the perfect location for a wedding! It is beautiful inside and out! The park grounds are well kept and a lakefront ceremony and reception provide a beautiful setting. The team was very professional and attentive. It rained on my wedding day and stopped about 30 minutes prior to the ceremony. The team really pulled it together to dry everything and make the necessary last minute changes. The estate house uses Big City Catering so the food was also delicious. I recommend this venue!!

I feel in love with this location immediately. I met with my planner and told her I was looking for a true southern venue and she referred me there. Gorgeous!! The staff especially Kim Boyd was such a pleasure. Great place to take the best pictures also. Only downside is that you have to end by 10pm.

I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with everyone at Cypress Grove! Cara, our sales manager, was there throughout the entire day (getting ready, ceremony, pictures, etc) and got us hooked up with Tori, our event planner, frorm RW Events. It goes without saying this venue is gorgeous, but the staff is truly what makes it special.

It rained on out wedding day... not just sprinkles - full on downpour - in the middle of the ceremony! Tori and Cara were running out with umbrellas, covering up our friends and family and really making the best of the situation. The days leading up to it, they calmed down my freakout about the weather and made sure there was a tent on the grounds.

The set up and incorporating all of the "DIY" self I did was beautiful. Again, the venue is great, but the staff makes it truly exceptional!

Cypress Grove Estate House is picturesque in every way. The house and the grounds are beautiful. It was a pleasure to work with the team at Cypress Grove. They were helpful throughout the entire planning process, from helping me with possible reception layouts, to table set up. I am from the Tampa area, and when I would have to come to Orlando for meetings with vendors they were extremely flexible and accommodating with time. My husband and I also very much enjoyed the tastings that were hosted at Cypress Grove. They really helped to bring everything together for us. Thanks for helping us to create our dream!

My husband and I were looking for an intimate location and certainly found it with the Cypress Grove Cottage House. We found it to be quite affordable and with a beautiful setting. I have already told one of my friends about this location for a nice spring or summer event.

The moment we set foot on the grounds at Cypress Grove, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. We had been to almost 10 other venues and this one trumped them all. We had some small issues at first with miscommunication and the staff, but we gave them the benefit of the doubt because when we first signed the venue was undergoing some ownership changes. After that, however, everything went off without a hitch. The staff was friendly and on the day of our wedding, they went out of their way to make sure everything went perfectly--even with some unforeseen glitches like rain. They busted their butts to keep everything dry and looking good and moved it all back as soon as the rain stopped. They did it all without us or our guests even noticing anything had interrupted the timeline! Before the wedding, they also were pretty flexible with letting us add little personal extras like bringing our own signature drink, putting up custom-made decor, etc...

The grounds at Cypress Grove speak for themselves--everything is well manicured and beautiful. You barely need any extra floral because the scenery is so pretty to begin with. The venue is also great because tables, chairs, linens, etc... are all already included in the price, which takes a lot of your plate when planning.
The food prices are pretty standard and can get expensive if you want upgrades, but the bar package was surprisingly affordable compared to other venues. The bar itself is also really cute, and the bartenders were all super friendly and would even come up to us during the wedding to ask if we needed drinks, water, etc... Finally, the food was great and they have a lot of options! The catering staff was also very considerate and made a plate for my husband and I since they know many couples get so busy they don't get to eat! Our guests commented that everything was well presented and delicious! So many of our guests have told us how beautiful and unique they thought Cypress was! We agree!

Tracy and the staff at big city catering were all fantastic. Cara was very pleasant and helpful. Everything went according to plan. The venue, food, bar, staff and decorations were all spot on. Amazing place to have a wedding and reception. I love this place.

My only low point was having to deal with Tori a "coordinator". We chose a different coordinator for the day of for budget and personal reasons, this apparently made tori angry. Tori was rude. She was forceful. She pissed off parents and members of the bridal party as well as the bride and groom. She paid no attention to what the bride wanted and continued to try and force "traditional" ceremony protocol on us. We wanted simple and asked that our wishes be respected. Tori had her own agenda.

What really sells this venue is its location!!! :) It is an absolutely GORGEOUS venue, and while I wasn't completely sold by its tastings, the food turned out to be absolutely AMAZING!! :) If you want a Southern feel for your wedding, this is the place. Just be sure to have a Plan B in mind if it rains!

I must commend Big City Catering and their staff. People went on and on about how amazing the food was, as well as how impressed they were by watching this staff flip the ceremony seating under the tent to an elegant dining setting (Yes, it rained on my wedding day...so we had to turn to plan B, the tent).

A few downfalls to this place...and just to be aware... are the staff you deal with directly. I dealt with 3 different people from start to finish due to a high turnover rate of staff. While most of them were really nice and accommodating, communication was lost along the way and what one person said was fine the other questioned it. I would suggest documenting every question and answer you receive.

Also, be prepared for it to rain on your wedding day. Be sure you have an extra $2500 set aside in your budget just in case it rains because if you have more than 75 guests at your wedding, you will be told that the remaining guests will have to sit outside... The venue will push this tent on you...just be prepared.

Another downside to this venue is the 10:00 pm sound ordinance, and that the estate house/bridal suite is not user friendly for getting ready in. The earliest you can get into the house for an afternoon wedding is 3 pm. If you want to get in any earlier to get ready and use the house, you have to pay an additional chunk of money.

The venue is comparable to any scene from "The Notebook." It is picture perfect, and if you are looking for that unique, southern style, classic venue then this is it. Though your event is locked into one of two time slots: 9am-2pm or 4pm-9pm. So if you are looking for an all day event (unless you're willing to pay oh so much money), then this is not the place. It can be difficult sometimes to reach staff...

The park itself is absolutly beautiful!

My review is on a wedding at the cottage. We did a garden wedding near the cottage house... the location and view was beautiful. The office personel that help me plan things out was helpful, however, I didnt see her but more than 1 sec the day of the wedding. The gazebo itself has water puddles all in the center (where we were supposed to be standing)... the groom had to find a way to soak up the water so that my dress woudnt get wet. During the wedding since it was in a public park... everyone was walking around/thru the sidewalk that we were using the isle. I believe someone from the park could have been there and held them off or not let anyone thru for at least during the 10 min entrance of the bridal party. Other than that... things went great... but if you plan on using this venue then I suggest just going ahead and using the big house. If you on a budget like we were.... then the cottage is still nice... just make sure to address the issues that I discribed below...
