Meet the Sales Manager

Entire life and a Wedding Coordinator on the side for 18 years. Coordinated Weddings at the Don Cesar, The Vinoy, Carrollwood Country Club, Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. Avila Golf and Country Club, and various other smaller Venues. I opened Covington Farm in 2017. I looked at over 35 Venues from Sarasota to Ocala with my nephew and his fiance. He wanted a Church Wedding, she wanted an elegant, chic Barn Venue. We could not find anything elegant, chic, and airconditioned. I was building a horse barn at the time for our Thoroughbred racehorse to birth, and raise her offspring, house them, as well as hay, and host potential buyers. When we were unable to find anything suitable for my nephew and his fiance’, I decided to add on to the Barn and make it over the top amazing. Couples began to book immediately. I am an animal lover, I have a Morkie named Scruffy, so I encourage couples to have their furbabies in their Save the Date photos, and even at the Wedding! I have horses, mini horses, a donkey, and 3 Baby Doll Sheep, all, including Scruffy are rescues. am also a plant, flower, and nature lover. I have certified butterfly gardens where we have host plants for the butterflies to lay their eggs, nectar flowers for them to feed, and sites for them to hatch. I am also an Apiarist, also known as a Beekeeper. I have beehives, we maintain, provide flowers for the colonies, and harvest fresh, non-pasteurized honey.

Elegant Rustic Burgundy Dade City Wedding | Covington Farm

We chose Covington Farm because as soon as we stepped foot onto the property we were blown away! Everything is so beautiful and every little detail you could think of is in the venue! Jacob and I could see us getting married there and didn’t have to think twice about it! The service at the venue was amazing; Barbara and her team made sure everything went smoothly and nothing was forgotten.

Romantic Blush Pink Rustic Wedding | Covington Farm

We looked specifically for a barn wedding venue that felt like you were transported out of Florida! We currently live in Fort Lauderdale, FL but we both have always dreamed about having a dream barn wedding. No matter where we looked in South Florida we never found something we truly fell in love with. We discovered Covington Farms, and it was absolute love at first sight. It truly makes you feel you are not in Florida and have been transported to this beautiful, elegant, breathtaking venue. There was truly nowhere else I would get married. Covington Farm went above and beyond in everything they did with our wedding process; any question we had they were there to help! Barbara, the owner, truly has the kindest heart and just wanted to make sure everything was perfect for us. By the end of our wedding, we were calling them family.
