Lakeside Wedding Highlights the Natural Beauty of Central Florida

This lakeside wedding venue was exactly what Martha & TeVaun’s wanted for their outdoor ceremony and reception. Both were held at the Lakeside Enclave in Groveland, Florida. The Lakeside Enclave is a sprawling property that includes a lakefront ceremony area and outdoor covered reception area made of repurposed storage containers. Additionally, there is a quaint and stylish guesthouse on the property. As well as a firepit and lakeside dock area. Without a doubt this property is a nature lover’s dream that celebrates the beauty of Central Florida and its many lakes.

Getting Ready

To get ready on site ,the Bride took advantage of the guest house. Her photographer from M.A.D. Images came early to get photos of her during the hair and makeup process. As a result they were also able to get some beautiful photos of Martha and her Mother putting on her veil. Meanwhile, TeVaun was already dressed and ready. He had photos taken with close family and friends outside while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

Lakeside Wedding Ceremony

The couple had an intimate wedding with 29 guests present. As you can see, the ceremony took place at the lakefront area under the large Oak Tree. Further, the long brick aisleway underneath the trellis made for a gorgeous entrance. One other thing, the couple added a fun triangular arch behind them during the ceremony. The trellis has bougainvillea flowers growing around it and the couple hung beautiful white draping to complete the romantic ceremony look.

cocktail hour

After the ceremony, guests headed over to the cocktail hour area. Allowing the wedding party to take the remainder of their photos. The Lakeside Enclave venue offers ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception spaces all at the same location. Therefore, guests are able to walk to each event space. During this time, Martha & TeVaun’s DJ got the party started while their guests enjoyed some adult beverages and passed appetizers provided by Cocktails Catering.

Dinner & Reception

After Cocktail Hour, guests headed to the covered reception space to get ready for the dinner portion of the evening. The reception space at Lakeside Enclave is like no other. For example, the reception area can seat 150 guests. And has fresh brick paving, as well as, market lights. In fact, the two outsides of the covered area are made up of repurposed storage containers. Admittedly giving a different look than your typical outdoor wedding. Inside the storage containers there are designated spaces for catering staff and buffet, bartender, DJ, and cake. There are cutouts in each storage container so that they operate similar to service windows.

The guests enjoyed the unique setup and the couple had their dance floor in the center of the dinner area. Before dinner, the couple had their first dance as husband and wife. Dinner was served buffet style and provided by Cocktails Catering.
