Recently, WeddingsIllustrated.net published on their blog a list of 10 Rustic Florida Wedding Venues and they named Saxon Manor and the Shabby Chic Barn as one of their favorite venues on the list. I’ll quote their thoughts that Saxon Manor ” combines Victorian era elegance with Southern charm”. We couldn’t agree more! Saxon Manor and the Shabby Chic Barn, just 45 minutes north of Tampa and 90 minutes west of Orlando in Brooksville, Florida, offers two venues on one gorgeous property. Both venues are elegant with draping, lighting and chandeliers. The glass Garden Room has a view of the Manor house and it’s landscaped lawn. You can have your outdoor ceremony anywhere on the lawn with the beautiful Victorian house in the background. Cocktail hour takes place on the patio and dinner follows inside the glass Garden Room. Custom linens and crystal Chiavari chairs are our standard. End your evening with S’mores by the lighted fire pit. The Shabby Chic Barn is nestled in the woods. Ceremony takes place at the arch under a majestic oak. Move to the patio strung with lights for cocktail hour, then dinner inside the very elegant barn set with a mix of vintage and farm tables. White tables and white Chiavari chairs go with every theme and color scheme. Dancing takes place either on the patio or inside the barn. The Shabby Chic Barn also has a lighted fire pit for late night S’mores. Our commercial zoning means you don’t have to end your event at 10pm but can party as late as you like. No wonder WeddingsIllustrated loves Saxon Manor and the Shabby Chic Barn.
