Am I able to use vendors of my choice for this venue?

Yes! We want you to have the freedom to design the wedding of your dreams. Choosing your own vendors is a huge part of that. We require each vendor to be licensed and to provide liability insurance listing Ocala Estate as an additional insured. We also offer you a preferred vendor list if you need some assistance with finding options for your big day.

Will someone be available to guide us on the details of the property once we arrive?

Absolutely! You will be greeted by an onsite concierge and will have access to the property manager during your entire visit on Ocala Estate. They can show you around and offer insight on the details such as Wi-Fi connection, etc. Unfortunately, the property manager is unable to assist with wedding details. We ask that these tasks remain with the wedding coordinator you hire.

Is guest parking available onsite? 

Yes! We have dedicated space for parking in the rear of the property, out of site of the beautiful grounds. We offer valet service as an add on as well.

What is required to reserve my wedding date on your calendar?

A non-refundable deposit and a signed contract are required to hold your date. This deposit is counted towards your outstanding balance. We have designed a payment plan for anyone who prefers to break up their payments. This includes a fully refundable security deposit.

What is the security deposit used for?

The security deposit serves to protect our estate from damages that may occur during the use of the property. Once the property is inspected after your event is held the deposit will be returned to you if the property is returned back to its original state.

What is the cut off for my event at night?

Your wedding can go until midnight and then we charge an additional fee for every hour after. It's a celebration, have fun!

Will I be able to visit the venue for design ideas during the planning stages?

Of course! A one-hour design meeting is included in your rental price. At that time our property manager will review the property layout and walk your vendors through the space to help plan the details of your event. If you require additional design meetings we will happily accommodate you for a small fee that can be added to your remaining balance.

Are candles allowed?

We do allow the use of candles on the property as long as you adhere to the fire department regulations outlined in your contract.

Can we serve alcohol at the event?

You are allowed to serve alcohol as long as it is compliant with state and local alcohol laws. Serving alcohol to minors is always prohibited.

Can I rearrange existing furniture and décor?

Permission can be granted upon your design meeting for the rearranging of any existing décor and/ or furniture. This must be specified at that time so arrangements can be made to safely move/ store any valuable pieces.

Is there enough space for me to get ready on site? What about the groomsmen and groom?

We are proud to showcase our beautiful Bridal Suite in the main house for the Bride and her Bridesmaids. It includes a full bathroom and powder room with makeup lights. The guest house, playfully called the Men’s Den, is a separate building in the back of the main house. It is the perfect spot for the men to hang out and get ready. It features a kitchenette, bar & a bathroom.

How many days are included in the rental for my wedding?

You are allotted more than 2 days for the rental. Check in starts as early as 9am on Friday and check out is at noon on Sunday. You can easily extend your time with prior approval for a fee.

Are children allowed on the property?

Of course! We ask that all children under the age of 13 are supervised by an adult or designated babysitter at all times.

How many people can this location accommodate?

Our maximum capacity at the moment is 350 guests.

How much time is allocated for my rehearsal?

We ask that events are brought to a close each night no later than 11:30. If you are not contracted for overnight accommodations, we kindly as that everyone exits the property shortly after this time each night.

Are pets allowed in my ceremony?

We are big animal lovers here at Ocala, and we would love to accomodate your pets to be apart of your ceremony. Please inform one of the property managers of your request to have your pet on site for the celebration during your ceremony. 

Is this site wheelchair accessible?

Yes! All indoor, lower level accommodations are wheelchair accessable. Since this is an outdoor venue, the majority of the grounds are grass.

What is the cancellation policy?

We require a non-refundable deposit before we officially book your dates on our calendar. Any payments after this are also non-refundable except for the damage deposit. We will do our best to work with you to switch your dates around but a new deposit must be paid for the new booking.

Are heaters and umbrellas provided for the outdoor space?

Of course! We have a number of outdoor patio heaters available for your cooler weather events. Should it rain on your special day we offer umbrellas for the wedding party as well as guests.  Be sure to mention this to our staff if you are interested.
