“My daughter’s wedding was a dream come true! Cross Creek Ranch is THE place to hold your barn wedding…hands down! The staff is amazing and no details were missed. Everything exceeded our expectations! The grounds are impeccable and the Carriage House Stable was breathtaking all set for the reception. This was a completely stress free experience thanks to the professionalism of the Cross Creek Ranch staff. Everything was absolutely perfect!”

Tampa barn wedding venue

“When the day came when we were finally able to tour the property, it was a done deal after 10 minutes. From then on, Cross Creek was with us every step of the way and made the pre-wedding day plans as simple as can be for mainly my wife but also for me and our family.

The countless team members that took us through the wedding process were knowledgeable and communicated well every step of the way. Come wedding day, we were overcome with the support that each one of us had and for the warm family style feeling they brought to each of our guests. 

We would recommend Cross Creek Ranch over and over again. Thank you all for making us feel at home and for the support and guidance along each milestone.”

Completely Blown Away – Far Exceeded ALL Expectations. Book them, book them, book them! My husband and I are from the Tampa Area, but are currently living in San Antonio, Texas. Not only is planning a wedding stressful, but trying to plan a wedding from a different state can be a daunting task. From the moment we “virtually” toured Cross Creek (we toured over FaceTime) to the moment we walked through our sparkler send off, everything was PERFECT! Cross Creek truly takes care of every aspect of your wedding and made planning from Texas a breeze. Every staff member is so knowledgable, helpful, organized and SO sweet! My husband and I did not have to think about a thing throughout the planning process.”

“If I could relive this day over and over I would! Cross Creek was not only the perfect backdrop for our fairytale wedding but the staff and vendors are what truly made it the best decision ever! I have several jobs and not a ton of time for wedding planning and Cross Creek was by our side from start to finish making everything a breeze. I knew I wanted a rustic feel to my wedding without it being western or country and they delivered. The decor was enchanting! Not to mention all the vendors they partner with are top notch. Cross Creek Ranch made us feel like part of the family and I would recommend them to anyone recently engaged.”

They made my dream day a reality. I just recently had my wedding at the French Country Inn and after 15 months of planning I can honestly say I wouldn’t do anything different. From the beginning Cross Creek Ranch was AWESOME. They literally do everything for you, it made the planning process SO easy. I was stress free the entire process and it was completely due to them. “

 Beyond our wildest dreams. There are not even words to describe how incredible Cross Creek Ranch is. From the very first conversation to the last hug at the end of our wedding, every single person we dealt with was amazing. Everyone was so kind and organized and we honestly didn’t have a single bad experience throughout the whole thing. Even the contracted vendors that CCR offers were all amazing… It was overall an experience we will never forget. The staff at CCR is so kind and overwhelmingly accommodating. It was more than we even could have hoped for and we are SO happy we chose them as our venue. If you are in the market for any kind of venue, Cross Creek is your place! We will be forever grateful to them for making our wedding a dream come true!”

Beautiful, personalized and perfect. Cross Creek Ranch was, hands down, the best decision we made for our wedding. From the first phone call all the way through the wedding day, they showed us nothing but excitement, love, and care, and truly treated my husband and I like family. Not once during the year leading up to our wedding did we ever worry about a single detail. Any questions we had were answered practically instantly, and any scheduling concerns we had (especially since my husband lived in another country), were accommodated with no issues or stress. The whole planning process was fun, easy, and personalized. When considering booking an all-inclusive venue, and before visiting Cross Creek Ranch, our only concern was whether the wedding would still feel “like us”, however, I can assure you, with Cross Creek Ranch, you are NOT getting a “cookie cutter” wedding. The design team at Cross Creek REALLY took the time to listen to us, review our Pinterest board and understand “us” and our style, and went beyond our wildest dreams to deliver the most beautiful, magical wedding. “

An unforgettable experience. We had our wedding at the French Country Inn. All vendors were great quality, from the bakery, florals, caterer, and DJ. We didn’t have to lift a finger on our special day! Great place for an intimate and romantic wedding day!”

If it was not frowned upon, I would married here every weekend! 🙂 CCR has been FLAWLESS in every step of my wedding, from start to finish. The wedding was incredibly magic and beautiful. I speak of high praise of CCR because I don’t regret it one bit. My husband and I already have time-demanding jobs and CCR made it so easy and smooth in the planning process, that it did not feel stressful. The venue is very prepared, organized, and upbeat. If you are looking for a venue that is different from the typical ballroom or beach style wedding, please check this venue out! They are truly amazing!!”

-Morgan, bride

“When we were first planning, we came across Cross Creek because we wanted to have a chapel but not get married in a church. We visited the site and from the first interaction we knew this was the site. We visited one other after them, but nothing compared to them. Don’t get shocked by the price because it includes pretty much everything and those are the things that get you in the end is the decor and table linens!… So, no hunting down deals for flowers or DJs. Everyone works together all the time so it’s a well-oiled machine!”

-Nichole, bride

“We planned our wedding from 2 hours away and each time we came up to have planning meetings they made sure to get as many things done and as many venue representatives present as they could so we didn’t have to keep coming up!”

If you are looking for the PERFECT wedding venue, look no further than Cross Creek Ranch in Dover, FL! The level of professionalism, patience and attention to detail that the entire team takes to create the wedding of your dreams is outstanding! The venue offers different settings for your special day. My daughter and son in law fell in love with Enchanted Forest where they could see their vision of their special day taking place. I truly could go on and on about this venue, from start to finish Cross Creek Ranch was above and beyond any expectation my husband and I could have had. The venue itself is gorgeous, but their ability to place such special people in positions to make our day so, so perfect for our only child was such a blessing. Thank you to everyone at Cross Creek!”

-Tammy, mother of the bride

“If you are as in love with this venue as I was, do not hesitate and go tour it, love it more, and then pick it! This place is all inclusive and from the very first day of my wedding planning, I barely had to lift a finger. We did our rehearsal dinner there, our wedding, and we even utilized the honeymoon suite on site the night of the wedding – so we didn’t have to worry about transportation to a hotel- and they even wrapped up a bunch of food and desserts and had them saved up for us when we arrived to the honeymoon suite. Cross Creek takes care of 90% of the vendors, materials, services, etc. They ensure the highest quality of services rendered from all of their contracted vendors and every single person you work with at Cross Creek gives you 150% of their care and effort into planning your big day. These people have been working together for many years and their communication between each other on the day of the wedding is on point and while they keep to a strict schedule, they make sure that the bride, groom, and wedding party are taken care of every step of the way. They really emphasize the importance of the bride and groom getting what they want and making sure we enjoyed our day.”

-Lauren, bride

“They treated myself and the groom like royalty! The staff was so kind, well-prepared, and on top of all the details.”
