The Story Behind How Ever After Farms Blueberry Farm became Florida’s Perfect Wedding Barn
Although the property had been a very popular U-Pick blueberry farm for many years, here’s how it also became Florida’s perfect rustic barn wedding venue. It all started when the founders saw the popularity of wedding barns sweeping the Sunshine State but were surprised to discover that none of the existing Barns had absolutely everything couples wanted in a country barn venue. So they set out to create it.
The owners started their property search looking for a needle in a haystack. The land had to be absolutely beautiful. It needed to be centrally located but also be completely secluded. It needed to have a pond for pictures and a gigantic live oak tree for couples to give their vows under. And most importantly, it had to be a bona-fide commercial farm.
After a very long quest, they found a private, 17 acre blueberry farm for sale. The acres of blueberries looked like a vineyard, creating a very romantic and beautiful setting. It was located just 50 minutes from Orlando, Daytona and Melbourne and was just a few miles off I-95. Plus, it had an incredible live oak tree and a peaceful pond. It fit their criteria exactly.
Once purchased, they immediately began shaping it into what you see today. First, came remodeling the existing barn. It had to have heat and air conditioning. They couldn’t believe that some couples were having wedding receptions in the Florida heat without AC! It needed a luxury decorated bridal suite and a very cool groom suite. The lighting had to be over the top with chandeliers, white market lights, string lights and more. It needed a full service bar and caterer’s staging area with all the necessary appliances. And what Barn would be complete without a covered patio as a cocktail area between the ceremony area and the Barn? No expense was spared, including installing a WiFi controlled surround sound system, a projector with huge screen and the most in-style decorations a couple could ask for.
Yet remodeling the Barn was just the beginning of their vision. Next came the manicuring of the ceremony area. They added a pergola, big wooden cross, huge entrance doors, communion table, flowering jasmine posts that held up string light, a paver aisle, chairs and decorations in front of the extraordinary oak tree.
Then, came all the little details like a white boat at the pond, a small white horse barn and horse stable at the north end of the property and an authentic Cinderella Carriage.
Lastly, came the very rare, fully restored 1956 Studebaker Truck, capping off what is now the most picture-spot-rich wedding barn venue you’ll find perhaps anywhere in the country.
Unlike most Barns which started off as family owned properties and then were later updated to host weddings. Ever After Farms Blueberry Farm and now Peach Farm were both chosen and then hand crafted into becoming Florida’s perfect wedding barns. While the pictures, videos and 3D virtual tour on this website depict a stunning place, there’s nothing quite like seeing this breathtaking venue in person. Book your tour today!
