Love Notes

So many photo options! posted by Jenny.

This place is a hidden gem! If you are looking for the “old Florida” charm for your wedding, this is the most gorgeous setting I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Gilly Francis was such a delight to work with from day one. She was very helpful with sending vendor lists, gave us tips and ideas and was there on the big day to make sure everything ran smoothly. The weather was perfect that day and we couldn’t ask for more for a wedding ceremony. If we could we would have planned to have both our ceremony and reception there because it was so beautiful! This venue is also perfect for so many photo options. Thank you Gilly!!

This venue is gorgeous. Originally, I thought I had wanted a beach wedding, but being from the South, the plantation home style had a draw. This was the PERFECT combination – a plantation style home on the Bay. It was very unique and was very classy. Gilly, who manages the venue, is great to work with. We almost got rained out and ended up having to get a tent day-of. Gilly was great in figuring out how to get things done last minute. The large trees with Spanish moss also added a great Old World feel. We took quite a few pictures on the pier as well and I can’t wait to see how they turned out. Overall, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!! It was gorgeous and very easy to coordinate with Gilly.

Right on the water! Posted by Shauna.

.You should really check this spot out! Plus when you choose Bay Preserve you are supporting the Conservation Foundation. Not to mention, Gilly (who runs the show there) is on top of her game! She was so easy to communicate with, and helped ease this first time bride’s troubled mind! If I could re-live my wedding day 1,000 times, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Breathtaking! Posted by Renee.

The venue is breathtaking. It captured everything we were looking for, for our wedding; historic elements and a stunning outside setting on the water. Gilly made our ceremony possible in a place that had not yet held a ceremony. She graciously worked with us and vendors to ensure we were able to have everything just the way we envisioned. Our ceremony and reception seemed like they were out of a movie. It was a perfect evening and night, thanks to the beautiful grounds, and team at Historic Spanish Point.

Absolutely perfect! Happy Bride 

We had our wedding ceremony at Mary’s Chapel at Spanish Point. We fell in love with this chapel and it was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Gilly Francis was fantastic to work with and was so accommodating. She had everything in order for our special day and we could not be happier how it all turned out.

Beautiful View! Posted by Katie

We had our wedding ceremony at Spanish point on the white cottage lawn. It was beautiful! Gilly was so great to work with. She was very organized and had a lot of great ideas. All of our guests loved the beautiful view!
