This is an amazing venue for more hands-on couples or those seeking a more down-to-earth feel for their big day. We found Laurel Wood Gardens early on in our search, and though it was a bit of a drive for us (we're in the Orlando area), after one visit we knew we had found our perfect venue! It is breathtakingly beautiful. The new archway for ceremonies (a more modern, clean wooden arch that Cece, the owner, decorates to your specifications) is incredibly romantic and stunning. Cece is one of the best parts about this place. She will do a lot of the decorating for you using silk flowers she already has on site. We had a very eclectic mix of colors so I was a little worried about how her arrangements would turn out, but I was absolutely blown away! She is very hands-on and will help you with set up and arranging everything. For the price, you simply will not find a more beautiful location in Central Florida. My husband and I are so thrilled with this choice, it was one of our larger investments for our wedding, and it was beyond worth it. Do yourself a favor and at least take a visit to see this amazing venue, you will not be disappointed!

Our daughter was married last Sunday at the beautiful Laurel Woods Gardens. We highly recommend them for many reasons. Cecilia, the owner, was very easy to work with and did all that she could do to make the evening amazing and perfect! She is gracious, accommodating, hardworking and has the unique ability of assisting without being pushy or micromanaging. We had close to 150 guests for both the ceremony and reception so we used the tent and upper deck areas for a very reasonable price. The bridal parties were given plenty of privacy to get ready which was nice. The ceremony site is located within the woods and Cecilia coordinated her flowers in our daughter's wedding colors beautifully around the archway. The magnificent grandfather oaks made an incredible backdrop in the photos. The pictures have been amazing and our guests are still raving about how beautiful everything was; especially the upper deck lighting when the sun went down. Thank you Cecilia for making our daughter's dream wedding a reality!

Cecelia offers a scenic venue and a great package deal. She's essentially a venue, wedding planner and decorator all rolled into one. She is very easy to work with and very accommodating. All of the guests loved the venue! A lot of venues we looked into had very particular vendors they would work with, rules, etc. but Laurel Wood Gardens was very open to whatever we wanted. Super happy about this selection.

Laurelwood Gardens made my fairy tale wedding complete. I'm so thankful for Cecila & her awesome husband for allowing me to have my special day captured in their garden. The horse and carriage & amazing scenery a wedding to truly remember.

This place was everything we wanted and more! I was against the typical beach wedding and wanted something garden. We got it at Laurel Wood Gardens. The grounds are beautiful and the guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the oak tree was. Cecelia was wonderful to work with!

I got married 11/17/12 at LWG. Cece, the owner, is amazing. When you rent the venue, you also get her as your Day-of-Coordinator. She did everything! I showed up with a picture frame and ribbon, and she hung it from the tree. I showed up with extra flowers, and she put it in the mason jars lining the aisle. I gave her the stuff for my center pieces and she set them all up for me!

Cece even let me use her contact at a flower wholesaler to buy my flowers for cheap. For a bride on a budget, it meant a lot!

Besides how wonderful Cece is, and the hell of a bargain you get for your buck, the venue is gorgeous! All the guest were amazed with it's beauty and asked how i even found this hidden gem of a venue. At night, there are string lights in the tent and on the porch/dance floor. It's very romantic and beautiful.

I had 93 guest and there was plenty of room for everyone both at the ceremony, tent reception, and on the dance floor.

I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any bride looking for a vintage/rustic/romantic wedding.

Laurel Wood Gardens is an amazing venue to have your wedding. The property is so unique and although it may be a drive from Tampa, all of our guests understood once at LWG why we chose this venue for our wedding and reception. Attendees to our wedding described it as perfect and fairy tale like. Cecilia is great and very accomodating. The value of the venue for what you pay is well worth the services provided. She helped make the day picture perfect. Speaking of picture perfect, the sunset over the rolling hills make for some absolute beautiful pictures. I wouldn't change anything.

Cici is amazing. As soon as you meet her, you will know that you are stepping out of the retail wedding world. Before touring Laurel Wood, I had been to around 10 other reception/ceremony venues in the Tampa Bay area. Not only were most places outrageously priced, most were not willing to deliver half of what Cici was. Every request we made at Laurel Wood happened without hesitation. She will let you use ANY part of her large venue for your entire event.. thats right people, no pricing 'per tree' like some venues. I stopped by multiple times (3-4) in the months leading up to the wedding (to try to remember layout, get a feel of what I wanted) with no problem from Cici... just call and she says come on over. If youre looking for a simple yet elegant wedding feel this is the place to go. If youre looking for a ballroom, look elsewhere. I was a little worried about the size of the deck and tent area but it perfectly accommodated our 65 guests. Take a trip out to see Cici and you will not regret it. As soon as you take the tour, you will know what I am talking about. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking (wait till you see the ceremony tree!)
