Situated in a tranquil, mature wooded sanctuary along the shores of the enchanting Twin Lake, Casani Estates emerges as one of Florida’s most captivating and exclusive event venues. This pristine location is enveloped by sprawling nature trails, majestic oak trees, towering pines, and native bald cypress trees, providing an enchanting, rustic garden ambiance for your wedding or special event.
With a forest spanning over 100 acres, Casani Estates weaves a spellbinding tapestry of nature’s wonders with numerous picturesque landscapes. It’s as though couples and their guests are stepping into a whimsical woodland fairytale.
Casani Estates not only offers couples stunning backdrops and breathtaking views, but they also offer exceptional service. Couples have use of the property for 12 hours on the day of their event and rehearsal access on the Thursday before the ceremony. To further enhance your experience, a dedicated on-site attendant is available to support event planners, coordinators, and couples throughout the day.
The venue offers distinct and comfortable getting-ready spaces, including the ‘get ready cabin, and a ‘get ready suite.’ These spaces are equipped with multiple vanity stations, restrooms, a wet bar, and a master room, ensuring you can prepare for your big day in complete privacy.
Lastly, couples seeking a more casual gathering with their guests can enjoy yard games on The Great Lawn, and a cozy fire pit for some post-reception s’mores. For those seeking a true weekend retreat, Casani Estates offers the option of on-site cabin lodging for up to the couple and up to 20 guests.
With a variety of nature-filled sites offering stunning views and beautiful architecture, Casani Estates provides a truly unique setting for weddings of all sizes.
The private event space boasts four distinct lakefront ceremony sites: The Pines, with its abundant shade and outdoor chapel ambiance, offers mesmerizing lake views. The Lake Point presents a tropical, waterfront option with breathtaking water views and immaculately maintained green spaces. The Great Lawn, expansive and accommodating, sets the stage for grand ceremonies, capable of hosting over 300 guests. For couples seeking an immersive woodland experience, The Oak Hammock envelops you in the beauty of Florida’s natural surroundings. Whichever site you choose, Casani Estates grants you and your loved ones easy access to gorgeous lake views, the gentle glow of romantic evening lights, and a breath of fresh Florida air.
The Cocktail Hour:
While couples have the ability to select their favorite spot for their cocktail reception, the two most popular spots are the Micro Pavilion, and The Pavilion Deck. Both of these spaces provide lakefront views with stunning sunsets to your cocktail hour. It is also very common for couples to take advantage of the scenic backdrops and set up photo booths in these spaces for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour.
The Pavilion at Casani Estates stands as a versatile masterpiece, ready to adapt to the unique theme and vibe of your wedding. Recently updated with the addition of patio doors, this space can be seamlessly transformed to your heart’s desire. With these doors, couples have the choice to open the Pavilion fully, creating an enchanting outdoor reception under the starlit sky, or close them to keep the party going indoors, where guests can dance the night away in the cool comfort of air conditioning, all while still savoring the breathtaking views that Casani has to offer. This flexibility ensures that your special day unfolds just as you’ve imagined it.
Offering a generously sized hybrid space with both indoor and outdoor areas, the reception space is versatile in terms of decor. It can easily be transformed from a rustic outdoor space to an elegant garden ballroom by simply adding a few details, such as ceiling drapes and chandeliers. Farm tables are available as an upgrade for couples who desire a more rustic feel and can be used to achieve this look.
