Reviews From Previous Marry Me Tampa Bay Brides:
“We wanted something with room to breathe in nature. Sal stumbled upon the Barn at Crescent Lake and immediately emailed me with the idea to check it out. Sal pushed for the wedding to happen quickly (he is a hopeless romantic) and we only had three months to plan it. The staff at the Barn at Crescent Lake was helpful, the vendors rapidly responsive and our families really came together for our wedding, which made the event run smoothly. We were so happy to have everything set up on time with no interruption. The staff allowed us to visit as needed and prepare the ceremony.” – Previous Bride Sonia | Peach, Navy Blue and Ivory Rustic Barn at Crescent Lake Wedding
“We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding with a barn to have our reception in. We absolutely fell in love with the Barn at Crescent Lake at Old McMicky’s Farm because it had everything we wanted in a venue – a barn to have our reception in, a beautiful property and a gorgeous lake for the backdrop of our ceremony. Old McMicky’s Farm had everything we were looking for in our wedding venue. The barn itself is a mixture of rustic/chic/elegance, which was the theme of our wedding. We absolutely loved the lake, the grounds are gorgeous and the property is very well maintained. The staff did an amazing job setting up for our wedding and making sure everything was in its place and exactly where we wanted it to be. We were very impressed by how well organized they were on our wedding day.” – Previous Bride Valerie | Rustic, Blush, Ivory and Coral The Barn at Crescent Lake Wedding
