We don’t make it out to the Clermont area too terribly often; it’s hard to remember it’s considered part of the Central Florida family. We have a couple of friends who live in Winter Garden so that’s about as close as we usually get. It’s a bit of a trek and there’s not much happening there that directly affects our lives. So we’re always curious about things that are going on there. When we found out a good friend of ours (one of those said friends who resides in WG) was getting married there, at a placed called Bridlewood Ranch, a couple of weeks ago we were most excited.
So on the day of the big event we met up with a friend and fellow wedding guest (another who lives in WG) and we rode out to the venue together. Now let’s just say this place is a little far. So far, in fact, we sorta thought we were lost and heading in the wrong direction. But we were totally digging the journey regardless.
Turning down a dirt road made us very, very skeptical that we were on the right path….
But then we caught site of some other humans and ended up being confronted with this – so we knew we were in the correct place.
Once we arrived at the destination and parked our car we headed down the “nature trail” to the area where the couple would be swapping their vows. The area was gorgeous, hugging a small lake and shaded by large trees.
As with any great wedding we stuck around for a catered dinner and cake, followed by some dancing. All of this took place in a barn, covered with bartenders and bathrooms (hey – you know people expect both!). PRO TIP: Although this area is covered it’s still suceptible to bugs once the sun goes down. Just be aware of this if you’re going to be at an event after dark.
And of course along with the food and drinks there was dancing. And sparklers. Lots and lots of dancing, and lots of sparklers.
All-in-all this ended up being an incredibly festive evening at an incredibly charming, secluded place. We would most definitely enjoy attending another event here and would certainly recommend it as a consideration for anyone looking for a space for an upcoming event. PRO TIP: Stay away if planning an event during any of the hot, hot humid summer months. Candidly, we would hate to attend an event here during any of those months. It just would not be pleasant.
