The only issue/guest complaint that I received was the bathrooms were dirty. Granted they are outside but my dad had to pick up trash before the wedding guests had even arrived and the didn't keep up with it during the night. But overall great venue, very beautiful at night, strung lights are up everywhere. Got some great pictures!

Where do I begin? As being a wedding planner professional, I can say Paradise Cove is amazing! I had my wedding here last week and from the moment I met Kayli at Paradise Cove, I knew it was going to be the place for our special day! The staff at Paradise Cove was very helpful, always got back to my emails promptly, and very accommodating. The venue is clean, organized, and your typical paradise. If you are looking for a venue like everything I discussed above, Paradise Cove is the right place for you! We couldn't be happier and if we could give it more an a 5.0 we would! Thank you!!

My wife and I got married here at Paradise Cove on August 9th, 2014. Wow. Incredible isn't even a proper adjective. They went above and beyond. Everything was incredible from top to bottom. From meetings, to contacting us about anything, to day-of. The setup was impeccible. The boat entrance, the care and attention to detail, just everything. We DIY'd our entire wedding (almost) and we thought it was great. The way Kayli and the other girls handled it, made it look even better. We did a planet ceremony in lieu of candles or sand. The girls collected rain water for us from the afternoon and we used THAT to water our plant. Just amazing. The thought of that was great. This is basically just a rambling at this point, but I cannot give them high enough praise. I would recommend them to any and everyone considering Paradise Cove for their venue!

If you are looking for your own Paradise on your very special day, then Paradise Cove is the place to be. The lights, the palm trees, and the cool breeze off the lake are only a few reasons why you should get married here. My husband and his groomsmen had a BLAST entering in on the speed boat, and we had a great time exiting on it. It was so GREAT to have our own little Island.

The coordinator was extremely accommodating to us and what we wanted. It ended up raining up until the scheduled ceremony and they had already set up a just in case arbour under the reception area just in case. Beautiful venue, beautiful pictures.

Best Venue EVER. This place is a true slice of paradise. From the moment we saw the venue (even in the rain) it was amazing. Fell head over heels in love with the place. Kayli and April are amazing. The handled ever little question I had and made sure everything was perfect. I have to also compliment the guys who work there. They are top notch. Everything I needed they got it. From a measuring tape when we were scoping the venue out for decoration ideas to helping me unload a 50 pound bag of sand for my centerpieces. They made everything look so good for my day. So happy we chose Paradise cove.

Nothing else like this in all of Central Florida! Kayli is great and is always there to help you plan and solve last minute problems. The venue is so great looking there is barely any need for wedding decorations. We loved the market lights and the cool breeze coming off the lake during our evening wedding! And of you haven't heard the Boat entrance/exit are a must and will set your wedding apart from all the other cookie cutters.

The beauty of this venue really speaks for itself the second you lay eyes on the gorgeous landscape and lakeside view! We were a little bit nervous about having a outdoor wedding in early summer, and low and behold we found ourselves practicing the dreaded "rain plan" in the pouring rain the day before our wedding. The staff did everything they could to make sure we got the wedding of our dreams (the rain did not fully clear until the guests were seated and it was our time to walk), but they somehow pulled it off seamlessly outdoors as planned! The entire evening was absolutely perfect in every way. We had countless compliments on how beautiful our venue was. Kayli was so helpful from the first time we took a tour of the place, through answering any questions I had through email, and even on the day of the event. There is not one single negative thing I could say about this venue!!

We just got married here this past Friday and it was amazing!!! Kayli was so amazing from start to finish. She answered all of my questions quickly and was always upbeat about everything. She helped set up the decorations, and everything looked better than I pictured in my head. She even moved some of the floral decorations from the ceremony archway to our sweetheart table after the ceremony to help spruce things up. She was great. And the venue itself is gorgeous! You really feel like you've been transported to a tropical paradise somewhere. I highly recommend getting ready in the bridal suite and doing the boat entrance. Overall I'd say everything was worth every penny and our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to!

AMAZING!!!! The first moment we walked in, we were hooked. Kayli, April, Timmy and anyone else I spoke with were so friendly and helpful. They treat you very well here. From chic to casual this place is awesome as a venue. The lights they have at night really lights up the place beautifully.

The surroundings really make this place unique in Orlando. The flora, the sand, the lake, the bar, and just everything gives it character. The openness makes it less stuffy than a hall.

The guests were so pleasantly surprised that this place in Orlando existed.

Loved the venue, it's perfect for that beachy destination feel wedding. The price is high, but the venue will not dissapoint! We had gorgeous weather. The set up and communication between myself and my wedding planner, was great! They had lots of options to add to the effect. We loved having the boat entrance and exit. We also used the pontoon boat for transportation to The Grand Beach Hotel across the lake. The guests though that was fun! We had a bonfire and smores! They upkept the firewood and had people handy throughout the day/night if we needed anything. Highly recommend the bridal suite to get ready! It made it so easy to prepare and enjoy the morning! We had someone come and to hair. We all fit nicely and could spend the morning relaxing with mimosas!

Paradise cove is an absolute gem! The perfect setting for our wedding. The staff is very helpful and made sure our day was perfect! This venue is the best kept secret in Orlando. The lighting, the décor, it feels so "Florida" but not the typical "beach wedding" that we all think of. It is perfect in every way.

My husband and I recently got married here and it was absolutely the most wonderful day of our lives! The bridal suite was the perfect place for me and my bridesmaids to get ready for the day. The setting, the landscaping, and the reception area was set up perfectly! They did everything we asked for and exceeded our expectations. The boat entrance and exit was such a highlight of the day. The s'mores on the beach with the fire was perfect and everyone loved it! Our guests are still raving about it! Thank you so much Paradise Cove!!!

Paradise Cove is an amazing team. They helped us in every possible way! They are very flexible with the needs of each couple. Of course there are rules just like any other place, but we know they exist for our own good. We asked them for the chairs to be set up a little earlier for our "first look" and just as promised they were ready on time! The bridal suite was ready a little earlier than usual by our request. Everything was very clean and well prepared for our wedding. Thank you so much Paradise Cove Team. Thank you Kaley for your help and professionalism!

Paradise Cove is a beautiful venue. I highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a tropical feel on their wedding day. Additionally, the ceremony and reception areas are right around the corner from each other so it is perfect for those looking to keep the wedding events in the same location. Paradise Cove is truly a gem, especially at night when you can see the twinkle lights at their brightest. I absolutely love this venue and wouldn't have gone anywhere else. When I first saw the venue (albeit online!), I knew it was the place for us.

I loved this venue! My husband and I only visited 1 venue and we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The cypress trees, lake, and Christmas lights made it feel like Florida and was exactly what we were looking for. I didn't have to buy a lot of decorations because the area is already so picturesque. The entire staff was very easy to work with and responded to panic-bride e-mails within a day. Unless you saw the rentals happening, you never would've known that water-sports are rented during the day because everything was cleaned up and beautiful for the wedding. I got ready in the bridal suit with my bridesmaids and our mothers which was perfect and made for some awesome photos. My husband and I left on a power boat which was a great touch for our friends and a perfect moment that we could share as husband and wife.

Our guests also loved the venue and really enjoyed taking the boat they offered back and forth from our host hotel, Grand Beach. It was a great site for a central Florida lake-side wedding!

Paradise Cove was the perfect outdoor wedding venue! All of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. My initial contact was Shanna (who ended up leaving) and Kayli took it from there. It ended up being a pretty chilly and windy night. If you are a bride who needs every detail perfect and no surprises, then I would NOT suggest an outdoor venue. You have to be able to roll with whatever punches mother nature throws, which I was. Kayli worked with my wedding coordinator to make sure the reception walls were dropped and the heaters in place before the reception even started. They did such a great job I was never stressed

I added quite a few extras like the heaters, the bridal suite, the boat ride, the fire pit and the extra hour and I think it was all worth it. I was able to get into the bridal suite at 12pm, which was great for the hair/make-up team and my bridesmaids. The boat ride is a MUST! I was on the fence about it, but Kayli talked me into it. I'm so glad she did!!! I could hear my guests cheering as my husband pulled up to the ceremony site! It definitely helped calm my nerves. I think the extra hour is well worth the money too....I definitely would have felt the wedding was too short without it. I honestly think Paradise Cove should start with 5 hours and allow you to add the 6th, but 5 hours did work out well for me and my guests. If you're going for a more casual feel, then I think the fire pit is great. We ended up putting some smores out there and they were a hit! It gives the non-dancers something to do.

The heaters were a last minute add-on that was very costly. I had to rent 5 of them from Paradise Cove at $75 each and one from the caterer at $125. My advice would be to leave some wiggle room in the budget if you have the chance for cold weather. You're going to NEED the heaters, and they ended up being a huge last minute expense.

There is not enough space in this review to write how I feel about Paradise Cove in Orlando, FL. They helped us so much with planning our Destination wedding via email. We reviewed their packages and customized one with them just for our day. All of the staff there, especially Kayli our Event Coordinator answered all of my long and crazy emails in record time. We had never seen the place before and when we got there it was beautiful and they welcomed us with open arms. We appreciate the way everyone there took care of us and was amazing to work with. We will be back to Florida and I will find a way to have another event there.

Paradise cove is the most beautiful and perfect place for an outdoor wedding!! My husband and I took one step on the property and knew it is where we were having our wedding before looking anywhere else. The boat entrance for the groomsmen was the coolest thing I had ever seen at a wedding and with my husband being a wake boarder it was nothing less of perfect and was the talk of the wedding!! The bridal suite on the property is so great for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in. Even on an extra cold night the venue was still great they have a bon fire and heaters ready for rental if needed. I had so many people come up to me and ask how I found this place and tell me how beautiful and perfect it was. Kayli is wonderful to work with she was there to help out with planning and any questions I had in a timely manner. If you are having an outdoor wedding I highly recommend paradise cove and make sure you do the boat entrance it is so worth it. Thank you kali and everyone at paradise cove for all your help and providing us with the most perfect place to have our wedding!!

Paradise Cove is a beautiful place to get married! We had our ceremony and reception at Paradise Cove and it was fantastic! The groom and groomsmen made a boat entrance to the ceremony and our guests loved it! We also did the boat exit at the end of the night and it was so much fun! The dance floor size is perfect and the variety of places to stand and mingle is something our guests really enjoyed! The bridal suite was the perfect place to hang out and get ready before the ceremony, there was plenty of room for my bridesmaids! We would recommend getting a day of coordinator to help set up the reception hall and keep things flowing.

For the perfect destination, out of the box wedding, Paradise Cove was a dream! Everyone is still racing about how beautiful the grounds and reception were. Shanna was amazing to work with, planning from Jersey she really helped us out with our questions and concerns. It was so laid back, beautiful and really really was perfect. We had the bridal suite all day, and the boat entrance and farewell. The team we got to work with was amazing. Even though you have to do everything on your own as far as finding vendors they give you a list of vendors to help you with planning. Shanna thank you so much for everything! And helping our day be that much more perfect!

Could not be any happier with our choice to go with Paradise Cove. Everything from the location, setting, affordability, staff, and pretty much everything was great! We had such a great time as well as our guest! I would suggest if you have to do pictures during your cocktail hour to go for the extra hour of time! The time does fly by quickly. The bridal suite is also perfect for getting ready in for the bride and the girls! We also had the best caterer Big City, they were awesome! This was a destination wedding for us and they made everything so easy and perfect. The food was great and they took care of everything. So happy!

Paradise Cove is truly a gem of a venue located in Orlando, FL. Our wedding was in June, when the weather is temperamental in Florida but our wedding day turned out to be absolutely perfect - breezy & sunny. The venue has everything you need to throw a ceremony and reception making it hassle free for the bride & groom as well as your guests. We also used the Bridal Suite to get dressed, which is super cute and very comfortable to have your hair & makeup artists come to you. Thank you Shanna and the Paradise Cove team for helping us throw the most amazing wedding! Emily & Kenny

Anyone who wants to do an outdoor wedding MUST go visit Paradise Cove... it is absolutely breathtaking! I've dreamed of a beach wedding all my life, but this took it to the next level. You still get the beachy feel but the convenience of having required amenities for a wedding. The transition between getting ready in the bridal suite, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception is flawless. All of my guests raved about how beautiful the wedding was and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Not to mention if you are trying to plan your own wedding they offer day of coordination services. I personally worked with Kayli and she was amazing at understanding my vision for our wedding day and making it even better in reality. I can not thank her enough for helping me pull off a flawless and fairy tail wedding! I think Paradise Cove is by far the best wedding venue in Central Florida and affordable!

Paradise Cove was exactly what I was looking for, and more! Everything about this place just takes your breath away - from the ceremony site, to the bridal suite, to the tiki bar!

Shanna was also wonderful - she answered any questions I had, and just made sure everything went off without a hitch. Excellent staff, I can't say enough good things about this venue :)

Beautiful venue with great and friendly staff. They let my bride go into the bridal suite two hours earlier than contractually obligated. The service was fantastic throughout the process of looking for, booking and planning the wedding.

The only negative is that they didn't have a floor plan of the venue available to allow us to easily plan the tables. I actually created one myself though as Kayli sat with me and helped me measure all of the walls to ensure that everything would fit.

All of our guests loved the venue as well!! The best "beach" wedding in Orlando!

The staff is always friendly and helpful, I didn't have to worry about a thing at my wedding! There's a good reason this place is so booked up, because its just that awesome! And make sure to hire Shanna to coordinate, she's the best! I've always been a crafty person, and did the majority of our decor myself, but I needed someone to put it all out for me the day of the wedding. She took my ideas to the next level, I had not a care in the world and no complaints about anything! If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks to the wonderful staff for such an amazing time!

For a low-key beach ceremony and no hassle reception, Paradise Cove was perfect! Kayli was so great in making sure everything was in order, and she was so easy to work with. The space is so open and accessible for our guests and photographer, and the fact that the lake is always in the background with a sense of privacy made it that much more special. Our day turned out perfectly!

Shanna and the rest of the Paradise Cove team really were incredible. The planning process was so easy with a cool and calm coordinator like Shanna at the helm. The venue was gorgeous, even more beautiful at night than I could have imagined. Overall just a beautiful venue, a great team to work with and flexibility for every budget. I loved being able to bring in our own caterer and purchase our own alcohol, we saved lots of money doing that and the food was way better than some nasty hotel chicken dish. We saved on alcohol and were able to rent their boats for guest transportation from the hotel as well as have Justin (my groom) do a special entry on the ski boat with his groomsmen before the ceremony. SO many cool touches you can do there!!

Paradise Cove was everything we needed to make our dream wedding reality. The venue speaks for itself...beach...tranquilty...romantic...We had to provide at least 3 different dates before we could finally book the space. This is a place you definitely need to book ASAP.
There are some areas that need to be cleaned up a bit, but the location and atmosphere was great. Our guests enjoyed their time and felt like they were in the caribbean somewhere and not Orlando, which tells us Mission Accommplished =0) =0)

This venue was GORGEOUS! Talk about beachy, tropical and romantic in the middle of Orlando! The only "problem" we had was that it started to rain about 10 minutes before our ceremony started so we were not able to get married in the beautiful ceremony space :( Nonetheless, we had a rain contingency plan and it was still amazing! Tip: Book early! Consider a Sunday or Friday wedding to save a little cash!

We loved Paradise Cove and had such an amazing wedding there! It was exactly what we wanted and could not have asked for a more beautiful venue. Although we had such a great time, this is a review and so there are a few things that I noticed. The price is pretty good, however, you only get 4 hours for the ceremony and reception which is not a lot of time. You can have a 5th hour but it is quite expensive. They are not as flexible as one would love for them to be (but it is because they are so busy). We had to have our rehearsal at 3pm which was a little earlier then a lot of our bridal party had expected (including us) so everyone had to take off work and make arrangements. Overall, we loved having our wedding there, but knowing some of these things beforehand would have helped me with planning and what not. So hopefully this helps you :)

Everyone that attended our wedding couldn't believe that this piece of land right smack in the middle of tourist country could be so secluded, you literally felt like you were on an island.

Paradise Cove is a perfect place for a outdoor romantic tropical wedding! I love the fact that it was like working with a blank canvas! We could chooses our own vendors and decorate how we wished! We loved the fact that we could have our Cermony and Reception in the same location so it was very convenient for all our out of town guests! There is lots of options for the layout and style of the reception!
I would highly reccmond that all the brides rent the bridal suite! it was completely worth it! My girls and i had a great time getting ready and spending time together!
My only thing i would say i did not like was the chairs they had that are included in the price! they were just the basic plastic patio chairs! If you get covers for them they are fine but they are not pretty! We rented our chairs! But other than that it was a perfect location for our 100 guests!!! I couldnt imagine having my day any where else!!!!!

From the moment my then-fiance and I stepped foot on the property of Paradise Cove we knew we had found THE PLACE to say "I Do!" We had both our wedding and reception here, and utilized the bridal cottage for dressing, and the boat for transportation to and from the Blue Heron resort for us and our guests. Kristin was our tour-guide, and later our chosen Day of Coordinator, and she was truly spectacular. We knew we had made a friend for life! She was so kind and helpful through every single step of the wedding planning. Being a Type A bride, I was especially grateful for her knowledge, experience, and recommendations. The biggest hit with our guests was the Groom and Groomsmen entrance on a speed boat. Brides, this is such an amazing little item to add to your details! We coordinated music with their entrance... three weeks later and our guests are still raving about it! We could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding - Paradise Cove provided our guests with a truly unique Florida experience. From the lake, to the majestic cypress trees, to the palm trees and fauna. What was best about this location is that it really doesn't need a lot of decoration because it's already fabulous and natural. The tiki bar was a great hit with our guests, as was the canoe filled with beer, sodas, and water. Another inspired idea by Kristin. :-) I wish we could do it all over again!

Advice: book early, we had to go with a Sunday in February... it was still perfect weather, and a perfect day!

Paradise Cove is awesome. If you are looking for a beachy wedding, or a destination style wedding without having to leave the country - this is perfect! You can decorate to jazz it up or do nothing and it still looks exceptional. And the people at Paradise Cove, even though they do a ton of weddings, make sure each and every wedding is treated like royalty. Kristin at PC is amazing. She is super responsive and easy going. I loved working with her! Anything you want to know - she can answer for you (including great recommendations of other vendors). If I got married again I woul still do it here. We had such a blast.

Paradise Cove is an absolutely beautiful hidden gem. The fact that they run watersports during the day camouflages how incredible a wedding can be on their private lake venue. Kristen, the manager, is detail-oriented and makes certain that everything that needs to be done for your special day is done. She even serves as a day-of-start-up-the-wedding coordinator, placing programs on chairs if necessary. The grooms entrance on the power ski boat interrupting the silent anticipation of the wedding guests is nothing short of pure awesome. The spacious bridal house is a definite asset to the venue. Getting ready right there without having to think about transportation to the ceremony itself is as good as it gets. The grounds are beautifully kept and the lake is a perfect backdrop for all the photos. We did a first look on their dock. The open bungalow reception area is so beautiful when lit at night and the dance floor holds a party. I wouldn't have had it any other way.

This was an amazing location!! The scenery is out of this world! I truly felt like I was in a movie when walking down the aisle. Its a natural beauty, that doesn't take much decorating which is a huge plus.

My only complaint would be the bugs. Being that my wedding took place during one of the TWO times of the year that "love bugs" are present, they were everywhere. The sun can also be a killer, so refreshments and fans for your guests, are definitely recommended if at all possible.

Overall, we are truly pleased with our selection of Paradise Cove. We would without a doubt, recommended it to others who are seeking a beautiful outdoor location, at a reasonable cost.

My wedding was last month and it was AMAZING. I felt like I was literally in "Paradise," probably why they call the place paradise cove! It blows my mind that people think this place is expensive because a friend of mine got married at a similar venue in South Florida and paid 3x more for a venue that wasn't near as nice. And Kristen was great! Make sure you say you want to work with her! Everything was beautiful and my guests are still raving about it. I'm very lucky we found this place!

The facility is amazing and we were concerned about the heat as we had an outdoor wedding in June in Orlando. It was definitely hot, but we rented fans and the evening was still very enjoyable. Kristin was wonderful to work with. The facility is laid back and pretty much lets you do what you need to (in the allotted time). They allowed us to bring in our own caterer and purchase our alcohol directly so that save quite a bit of money. During the reception the staff onsite was helpful and friendly. It was a destination wedding for our entire family and all of our friends - they wanted Disney - I did not. It was the perfect compromise, I got my tropical "beach" wedding. They got their disney vacation.

The venue was absolutely beautiful! I'm so glad we chose it for our wedding day. The staff was very helpful as well as easy to communicate with. The only drawbacks I could think of were the price (its a bit much, but you don't have to do as much decorating), the short amount of time for the event, and the lack of time before the event to set up. The rental price only includes 2 hours of setup and the whole ceremony and reception had to take place in 4 hours. Though our wedding didn't seem as short as I anticipated it would have been nice to relax and enjoy it a bit longer. There are also many restrictions for your decore (if trying to set it up yourself). Otherwise we loved Paradise Cove and our guests still tell us how beautiful it was!

Gorgeous venue! Everyone loved it and had a fantastic time! Just be sure to bring bug spray if you have a May wedding because there were a lot of mosquitos! It's to be expected, it's Florida and the venue is on a lake. The staff is friendly and easy to work with. They're very laid back which was great for me! The site is also gorgeous and doesn't require much effort to make it look good. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who wants a tropical feel to their wedding!

-an off-beat venue (no walls, no "dance floor" just a "dance deck", tiki bar...can you tell I liked the tiki bar?)
-a destination feel for out-of-towners without leaving the country

Other Perks-

-an awesome lady named Kristen that will help you along the way, always gets back to emails promptly, and is just really sweet overall to work with
-a optional deck boat that can transport guests back and forth across the lake to a really sweet time share hotel (Blue Heron)
-a beach area with fire pit and Adirondack chairs by the lake
-a TIKI BAR!
-a house that's big enough to live in that's used as the bridal suite

I'm a bride coming from NYC (family lives in Orlando) so compared to the cost of having a wedding up here, this was like a total bargain! Book early, they tend to book out up to a year in advance.

Perfect place for a wedding. All our guest had a blast, especially those from up north. This place is so beautiful that it doesn't need much decoration. And the staff is great! Easy to get along with and a big help with planning. Loved it!

2/13/10 wedding.. This place is a great place to get married if youre looking for a beach like cer/recpt. They arent too flexible on the time that youre aloud. They are set in certain blocks of like 4-5 hrs. but if you want a short wedding its perfect. The only problem I had were the HEATERS.. I rented 4. It was really cold that night 40s or so. 3 were malfunctioning all night and one just turned off. If youre having a winter wedding there test out their heaters before hand.. Other than that it was an amazing location to get married. THe staff were very helpful too. The TIKI BAR is a plus to the theme.. :)

I had my wedding here in February 2010. The location is PERFECT for an outdoor wedding! It gives a great beachy vibe in the middle of Orlando. It was one of the only places I found that had both the ceremony and reception outdoors. Plus, with the venue looking so great to begin with, we saved a lot of money on decorations.

Dates fill up quickly here, so if you're looking for a wedding venue I would recommend trying to book at least 6 months prior to the date you want.

Oh my gosh I cannot say enough great things about this place and the people who work there!!! First of all, the place is absolutely gorgeous as an outside venue, with palm trees and cabana style tiki bar and the lake and the brick pavers for the "down the aisle" walks. Even my guests from Orlando were absolutely stunned...they had never noticed this beautiful serene hideaway, hidden back behind all the crazy Disney tourist stuff. (Make sure your directions are VERY clear---guests won't be able to believe this gorgeous place is in the middle of everything---they will drive right past the entrance, I promise). I had a morning wedding at 10:30am and it was soooo pretty with the sun and the palm trees. I have awesome pictures!!! KRISTIN was my coordinator, and she was to die for. Everything was laid out for me, planning-wise. I had never gotten married before, so what do I know? She TOTALLY helped me through the whole process, and when I didn't want to make a decision, she asked me a few questions and made it happen! For example, I liked a certain color as an accent for a bouquet, but I honestly couldn't take the time to sort through a million flower types...I asked her if she could decide for me. No problem! She had another girl (who works there too!) do this INCREDIBLE arrangement that I could have never thought up myself. It was so perfect it was amazing. Seriously, I really could go on and on about this place. If you want more info I will gush more. carter at cartermay dot com is my email address.

This place is a hidden gem. Feels like a beach wedding without having to travel to the beach. It's so close to all the theme parky stuff (great for out of town visitors with families), but feels like you're miles away from everything. Kristin was wonderful to work with leading up to the event, very responsive and accessible. Shanna was great coordinating everything the day of. Guests couldn't stop raving about it - especially those who live in Central Florida and never knew the place existed. As far as overall value, it is pricier than some other venues we looked at, but the ability to purchase our own alcohol probably balanced that out. Plus, I loved being able to choose my own caterer. We did pay extra $$ for the bridal suite, boat shuttle and a fifth hour - it was expensive, but well worth it. Only two complaints: first, the boat shuttle got off to a late start, which is a big deal for a short event. Second, my brand new camera, filled with pics from the rehearsal dinner and pre-parties, disappeared from the bridal suite where I left it during the ceremony. Not pointing any fingers at anyone since plenty of people had access, but just make sure you have someone watching your valuables and make a solid plan about who will pack up what at the end of the night. Other than that, a fabulous choice. Many, many guests told me it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Paradise Cove is a beautiful venue for a laid-back wedding. The scenery and accomodations make you feel like you are vacationing in the Caribbean and it looks great in photos, too. Kristin is amazing to work with...she is very easy to reach by email or phone and offers many helpful suggestions for your "Big Day". Paradise Cove is very expensive and you must book several months in advance, but it is completely worth it if you want the "Island feel" without traveling. My guests gushed about the venue! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone planning a fun, relaxed wedding!

Paradise Cove is an island without going to the Caribbean. Very beautiful location and Kristen is a doll to work with. They are a little pricey for what they offer. My only complaint with them is the night of the wedding, it was chilly so my husband and I paid for 2 heaters. Yes, we found out 2 days before our wedding (from another bride, not Paradise Cove) that we would have to pay for heaters if we needed them. I didn't like that sprung on us last minute. The day after the wedding we found out that the guy who brought the heaters out was telling guests how much they were, when they asked of course, and took money from them to pay for additional heaters! We would've liked to have been told so we could have provided additional heaters and not have him take money from our guests. That was horrible. Other than that, the location is beautiful for ceremony and reception.

Like a beach wedding but half the cost. Guests have told me more than once "best wedding I've ever been too!"

LOVED this venue. I wish I went with their vendor suggestions because I had a few bad eggs but since my venue was amazing thankfully my guests didn't notice the vendor hiccups.

Save your money and pick this venue, book early (dates fill fast), splurge on a coordinator and go with their venue suggestion list.

Get the beer canoe and get the boat entrance, it's worth it :)

Have a solid hair style if doing a sunset wedding because it gets windy at sunset for some reason!

Paradise Cove was a perfect setting for the relaxing, beachy vibe my husband and I wanted. Paradise Cove was beautiful in every way and we got SO many compliments on the area. They had some pretty reasonable packages too to help save money and make things easier. Paradise Cove was also rather accommadating. Other than a few things requirements, like must use their vendors, no fake flowers and no glass beer bottles, they were great on everything else! They said we could bring our doggie, they had room for my out of town family's RV, they worked with us on decorations exc. But we really did loved this place for it's absolute beauty, during the day and night!

With many out of state guests, we wanted a beachy/Florida Keys-themed wedding. Once we saw Paradise Cove, we knew this was our spot. The site is beautiful and open, and requires little to no decoration, which helped our budget. Also, you are allowed to bring in your own alcohol. Shanna was our coordinator, which is the cause for the less-than-perfect score. It was pretty clear that she didn't care and was tired of weddings, and I think she may be leaving soon. Some candles were left unlit (which we specifically mentioned because this happened at another wedding we saw here), and she was in shorts and flip flops the day of. Despite the planner's lacking, we are happy we chose Paradise Cove, as it made for some great photos and a beautiful setting for our wedding day.
