My Guide to Lakeland Wedding Venues

April 29, 2022

Hello Lakeland Bride-to-be!!

I have done two things with this wedding venue guide! The first is a list of MY favorite Lakeland wedding venues that I recommend to all my brides. And the second, is a COMPLETE list of every wedding venue within a half hour from Lakeland. That’s nearly 40 venues in total!

However! For my recommended venues, I have been to each and every one of these wedding venues and seen them for myself. I wanted to make sure that every single mark was hit for my brides including the location, the venue’s style, service and amenities, reviews from past couples, and of course the opportunities for beautiful wedding photography!

As a Lakeland Wedding photographer, I can assure you that all the wedding planning doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you have someone to help you along the way.
