Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. I only have positive and wonderful things to say about our Casa Lantana experience. Our wedding was truly one-of-a-kind.’
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.
We would recommend Casa Lantana. The wedding turned out beautiful, the service was excellent. We felt we made a life long friend. You will not be disappointed.
‘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.’
I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Giselle at Casa Lantana. Her incredible customer service and committment to each and every detail make working with her an absolute delight! I had the most wonderful experience in dealing with this site and would highly recommend it to anyone hosting an event. Thank you!
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 :)
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.
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 wish you bluebirds in the spring To give your heart a song to sing

We wish you love
And in July a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade
We wish you health
And more than wealth
We wish you love.
