From the very beginning, Nandy and the staff at Town Manor made us feel so special even though we wanted a very small, intimate wedding. It really was such a blessing to find a gorgeous, all-inclusive venue, on a beautiful lake, where we had to do very little work on our own part. Talk about value! What a relief as we were planning our wedding in less than 2 months time! Our guests just raved about the venue and staff, all things went as planned on our wedding day, and we were able to just relax and enjoy the very, very special moments. And talk about details! Everything from the delicious cake, down to the linen on the tables, it was just divine. We cannot thank Town Manor enough for making our romantic dreams come true for our one-in-a-lifetime day! We will most definitely be returning to the venue in the future to stay at the Bed & Breakfast for Anniversaries to come!
My husband and I had our wedding at the Town Manor on 10-21-2016. It was by far the best venue I have ever seen. I knew it was the place for us the minute we pulled up. Nandy had greeted us and I have to say she is just amazing. From the beginning to the end she was always there to answer any questions and to calm the very nervous bride. lol. Our pictures (which was very important me) were perfect. This place is so beautiful. Our wedding was at 4:00. WOW. It could not have been a better day. We got pictures in the sun, sunset and evening pictures all in a 3 1/2 hour window. AMAZING. Our guests complimented so much on the beauty of our venue. Our cake was exactly designed as we requested. The music and DJ (Nandy's Husband) was spot on. We hired a photo booth as well to add to the fun and Nandy was a huge help with that as well. We spoke many times by phone, email, and text. Every time, she answered all my questions or concerns and every time she calmed my nerves. Nandy is exactly where she belongs she was born for this. What an AMAZING woman. It truly is the place where dreams come true.
The minute I drove into the driveway I got chills and I just knew that I wanted to have my wedding my here . Nandy ,Don , Nancy and staff were all attentive and amazing. Nandy took care of everything. Our wedding day was October 22,2016. Our guests said that this was the best wedding venue that they have ever been too. Everything was perfect, my wedding cake was beautiful the food was delicious and the sunset was amazing. It was difinely a magical experience. I would definitely recommend the Town Maor to every bride and groom looking for a venue.
My wife and I cannot say enough how much Nandy and everyone at Town Manor did for us. We were incredibly stressed about planning a wedding to the point we considered just running to Vegas. Reluctantly we made a list of venues and set up appointments. This was our first stop. After meeting Nandy and touring Town Manor we cancelled the rest of the appointments because it was perfect. The team's energy and passion showed throughout the entire experience. They handled everything for us down to giving us templates to fill out. For the items we wanted customized they handled it with ease. The venue is beautiful, the food delicious, and the cake, let's just say I can't wait to eat the rest on our 1-year anniversary. Not only do you not have to track down 10 vendors, but the Manor does every service above and beyond. Our Guests are still commenting on how impressed they were. On the wedding day we didn't have to lift a finger. It ran like clockwork and we had an amazing time with no stress. On top of all that the prices were incredibly reasonable. Highly recommend!!
Nandy and her staff are very helpful and accommodating from start to finish. Our wedding was beautiful and perfect! The atmosphere and ambiance is breathtaking!!! The views from the lake are stunning. We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding. Everyone their said it was the perfect wedding and perfect venue, one guest even said she has been to many weddings and ours was "the most beautiful one she has ever been to!" Thanks for everything Nandy and team. This will be a day I will never forget!!!
Words cannot express how wonderful and beautiful our experience at town Manor was!!! Everything we could ever want or dream came to life in the most beautiful scene we've ever seen! I highly recommend town Manor for any events. You will not be disappointed, the food is amazing in the champagne is to die for!!! We can't wait to set up our next event what town Manor.
Nandy and her team are such amazing people! My wedding day was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing if I could. They kept everything organized and moving along nicely even though my pictures after the ceremony took a little longer than planned. The day before my wedding was also my birthday and right before we cut the cake, they surprised me by bringing out a cupcake and having everyone sing Happy Birthday. The venue is absolutely beautiful, the food exquisite, and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful people I think I have ever met. The prices are very reasonable and affordable and you more than definitely get your money's worth. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to help me plan and be part of one of the most happiest days of my life.
My (now) wife and I were looking for a venue that was beautiful, personable, all-inclusive and had upfront pricing. Town Manor accomplished all of this, but also so much more. Upon our first visit in meeting Nandy (owner/point of contact/orchestrator of all things wedding at Town Manor), we knew this was where we were getting married. Our package included the ceremony, officiant, cake, food, champagne toast, DJ, B&B accommodations after the reception and so much more. Nandy had a timeline for when all items necessary for the wedding needed to be complete. I can't say how much stress it took off of our shoulders to have a simple email with a gentle reminder that another milestone, such as sending invitations, was due. By the day of the wedding, we felt confident that everything was coordinated, taken care of and paid for. Our officiant, Nancy, couldn't have been more perfect and worked so hard to perfect our vows. Our DJ, Don, made sure our guests were dancing and engaged. The food served was hands down the best meal I've ever had at any wedding. Our server, Jessica, was attentive toward our every need. Our cake looked like it could have been on the cover of a upscale wedding magazine and tasted even better. At the end of the night, we retired to our suite and did not have to worry about clean up. We woke up and shared what felt like a 4-star breakfast with my parents (guests at the bed and breakfast on the far end of the house - less awkward than it sounds!). I know a lot of couples walk away from a wedding regretting how much they spent; my wife and I walked away not wishing we had changed a thing. Our day (and next morning) was absolutely perfect. We felt like we were truly part of the Town Manor family and will definitely spend future anniversaries at their B&B. Thank you Nandy, Don, Nancy, and all other staff at Town Manor that made our day possible.
Our wedding at Town Manor was everything we hoped it could be! Nandy, Don and the rest of the Town Manor crew did an excellent job helping ensure our special day turned out perfect. Everything went smoothly and the little details were taken care of for us. The food and cake were absolutely delicious! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue for both the ceremony and reception. The whimsical garden nestled on lake Juliana made the perfect back drop for saying our "I Do's." We even had a special baby squirrel crash our wedding...and pictures! Our guests were dazzled and so were we. Thank you for everything!
We just recently had our wedding over the weekend on September 17th. It was magical and alot more than i could have hoped for too! Nandy is a darling and she really knows how to put together a wedding. Her and the town manor team will spare you most of the stress and headache that comes with throwing a wedding. Nandy was hand and foot with us the entire way from the cake, to the music, and to the food. One of my favorite things from the wedding was the food! The majority of our family is from Jamaica and also the Bahamas so we were most concerned about the cuisine for the night but honestly the food turned out to be one of the biggest hits amongst everyone. I could not recommend this place enough as the perfect wedding venue. It is an all in one wedding package with all the bells and whistles to make you feel like king and queen on your day!
Our wedding at Town Manor was perfect. From the beginning till the end, Nandy made everything easy, and caused us no stress. The staff during the event was great. Our day was truly magical. We were being very selective, but as soon as we saw Town Manor we knew it was the venue we had been looking for! Tom & Kelli Nugent
What a wonderful wedding we had at Town Manor. When we toured the venue we had this feeling we'd be celebrating our big day here. We couldn't have been happier, it was a perfect day and the planning was so easy and stress free! We went with the highest package and added on an extra hour and we are SO glad we did as we needed it!! The food was outstanding (so I was told) and our cake was better than we could have dreamed! The setting for the ceremony is also breathtaking and there is some Magic around because even though it was a warm spring day it didn't feel hot during the ceremony! There were a few minor details that were missed but weren't enough to even consider giving the manor a negative review. We were given a plate of food after pictures and the first dance and I wasn't hungry and asked several times for a to go box of everything from our buffet and was told no problem but never got it at the end of the night. Instead we got a pasta dish (which was delicious) but we had a tapas style reception and some of the food look unreal! Also, the dock makes for BEAUTIFUL pictures but it needs to be maintained a little better. There were cobwebs and bird poop on it. My photographer actually cleared out some cobwebs so we could take some great pictures out there. Overall, it was a fantastic night we'll never forget and Nandy is always quick to respond and help guide you through decisions.
Our beautiful wedding at Town Manor was amazing, it was a dream come true for me and my husband. Everything came together so easily. Nandy was amazing and so helpful, their team at Town Manor was amazing, we could not have asked for more. Our whole family and friends loved everything from the garden wedding to the reception. The music that played as I walked down the aisle was so amazing and perfect. From the time I got there and stepped out of my car it was amazingly perfect. I would not change a thing about my experience at Town Manor and would recommend it to everyone getting married. I'll always remember the day I called and talked to Nandy she described the perfect wedding to me before I even told her what I wanted, it was like she knew just what I wanted before we ever met.
Our Wedding Day was something I will never forget. I am sure everyone thinks that, but we could not have picked a better venue. Town Manor was perfect. The ceremony in the garden was beautiful, the sunset on the lake was breathtaking, the food was delicious and you can't get a better wedding coordinator than Nandy. We fell in love with Town Manor the minute we went for a tour and we both knew it was the perfect place for us to start forever together. The venue is elegant and romantic, but also casual and charming. We had 90 guests at our wedding and every one of them had a great time. Town Manor is also a stress-free venue! Nandy is there every step of the way to take care of all the details. This venue handles the food, the cake, the music, the officiant, the decor, all you have to do is secure a photographer, a florist, get your dress and show up! Thank you Town Manor for making our day unforgettable!
I cannot be more thankful for the wonderful team at Town Manor. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and better than we could have imagined. The moment I arrived, I was greeted with a glass of champagne and a wonderful team. The reception area was beautifully decorated and my vision to Nandy had come true. The ceremony space with the lake in the backdrop is absolutely breathtaking. Nandy and her team did a wonderful job of keeping our stress to a minimum if that on our day! Nandy was a pleasure to work with from day one and would send reminders for important events. The food and cake were delicious and we received many compliments from our guests. Thank you Town Manor for making this day one of our favorite memories!
My husband and I had our wedding at Town Manor January 30, 2016. The Town Manor team was there for us from beginning to end. Nandy was so prompt in getting back with us on details of our wedding. They recently renovated their patio which provided our guests with MUCH more space to entertain. The view was absolutely breathtaking on our wedding day! Everything from the food, location, service, and overall ambiance of Town Manor gave us the best wedding we could ever hope for. If anyone is looking to plan a stress free wedding with all the bells and whistles, we would 100% recommend them to Town Manor!
Having your wedding on Valentine's Day can be very romantic and for the husband, easy to remember the date for future anniversaries. That is why my better half and I choose this date for our wedding. We spent many trips to look at venues in our area and could not find a place that fit our style and most of all were we felt comfortable about having our wedding there. That is until we came across Town Manor in Auburndale, Florida. We arrived to the Manor and was taken by the wrought iron fence and gates which opens to a brick lay pathway. The first thing that catches your eye is the lush landscaping and the old antique car, you just know you want to go for a ride in it. The manor is also a bed & breakfast and the home is set in an Victorian style that my wife and I love. We met with Nandy who gave us a tour and we loved the wedding gazebo with the lake in the background. We knew this was the place we want to have our wedding. Nandy told us she will do everything for our wedding and it would be a perfect day all we needed to do was find the florist and the photographer. I must say, she was true to her words. Our wedding was beautiful, from the brides room for dressing, the lovely decorated gazebo, which included a surprised wedding guest (an osprey) who oversaw the wedding, no problem he came with his own meal, a fish he just caught in the lake. The service was great and handled with care. The reception was classy and grand at the same time. The banquet room was set up with the colors to match my wife dress. I being a comic book geek had to find a way to incorporate my love of this media into our wedding but in a tasteful way. I did this with our wedding cake, it was a special order with half of it being white with rose pedals and the other have being Gotham City design. We gave Nandy a photo of the cake we wanted and again no problem in having it done. Our cake toppers were of Batman & Catwoman. It was so perfect we did not want to eat it, but it was delicious. Speaking of delicious the meal was wonderful and our reception was a hit and our guests had a good time. Our photographer (Peter & Christy Obetz) of Obetz Photography did a wonderful job both with his choices of locations but most of all moments. He has a great touch of captioning those intimated looks and moments. We look at our photos with joy and fond memorizes. I can not express our thanks and appreciation of the job that Nandy and her staff did for our wedding. If you are looking for a place to hold your wedding, there is NONE better then the Town Manor. Look forward to exceeding your expectations. Sincerely, Ruben and Vicky Cancel
My daughter Katie and my now son-in-law Thomas' wedding at Town Manor was absolutely perfect. The setting is beautiful, the food was excellent and the staff took wonderful care of our guests. As Mom and Dad living in Massachusetts and having a wedding in Florida , we were obviously concerned about handling details from so far away. Nandy reassured us that she would be available at any time to answer any questions or concerns. She put together a perfect day for our family and friends and we will always be grateful to her and her staff. Thank you Town Manor!!!
I can't thank Town Manor enough for my dream wedding! My wife and I got married there on February 20, 2016 at sunset and the staff was beyond words spectacular! From the first day, I fell in love with the location. It is right on Lake Juliana in Auburndale. The grounds are very well kept and the location is to die for gorgeous. As a Disney nerd, I was also informed that the grounds have hidden Mickey's all over it! Nandy was amazing through the whole process. She took the time out of her day to talk to me about any of my concerns or questions. She was very patient and understanding with everything. Her and her staff went above and beyond to make our day as special as can be! We even asked for songs that were not on their list they have on the website and Don made sure we could have those played at the wedding. We are a lesbian couple and with Florida just passing the law to allow my wife and me to wed, we were so grateful to find such a perfect location to do it at. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Town Manor over and over! Thank you to everyone there! We love you!
If you are looking for an absolutely charming, upscale venue Town Manor is your location! The Town Manor team exceeded our expectations. This venue is gorgeous, the food is phenomenal, the cake is absolutely delicious, the DJ rocks the house, and Nandy the coordinator will make your wedding dreams come true. Our family and friends are still calling, texting and emailing with compliments about the beauty of the venue, the quality of the food, and the overall elegance of our event. The service provided at this all inclusive venue includes a peace of mind that is priceless to a couple on their wedding day.
What a wonderful venue! We wanted something outside and something that could be a little less formal and more casual. As soon as we saw the patio, lake, and gazebo, we knew we found the place! Unfortunately our wedding day ended up being freezing so the outside patio couldn't be utilized as much as it could have, but Nandy and her staff accommodated everyone and got everyone hot soup when they went inside after the ceremony. And the food? DELICIOUS! The cake? OMG SO GOOD! I keep opening my freezer and seeing the top of the cake saved for our anniversary, and it can't come soon enough! I loved how everything was taken care of- we just had to show up. Nandy and her team coordinated everything beautifully so I didn't have to worry about what was going to happen next. Before the day, Nandy kept in touch over phone and email and I never had to wait long for a response if I messaged her with a question. She's amazing! I honestly don't know how she does it. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a stress-free experience where things are planned out for you. The grounds and manor are gorgeous to ensure a beautiful wedding.
Our wedding on March 6, 2016 was literally fantastic at Town Manor and was a fairytale come true for us at this venue. My husband and I would recommend this venue to anyone as one of the absolute best! From the very first interaction with Nandy the wedding planner I knew that we had picked the perfect spot. She made planning a wedding incredibly easy and never once for a minute did I feel stressed during the entire wedding process even though we were planning a wedding in Florida when we live in Pittsburgh, PA. Nandy offers a list of recommended vendors for flowers, makeup, hair stylists, minsters (Nancy is literally an Angel) photographers (pick Mindy Mier photography she did an AMAZING job!) and this helps tremendously for out of town folks who might need some extra help like my husband and I. Nandy and her staff were beyond helpful, caring, kind, and made my family and friends feel like they were right at home at Town Manor. Words cannot even describe how beautiful this venue is until you see it in person, pictures just don't do it justice. This venue is a perfect combination of an outdoor wedding ceremony with an indoor wedding reception. We had never seen such an amazing garden until we stepped foot at Town Manor. The wedding venue is ideally located on a lake and the sunset is breathtaking. All of our guests raved about how they had never been to such a picturesque wedding where it really seems magical. We felt like a Disney prince and princess getting married. The food is out of this world, absolutely delicious and the cake is also made on site. I sent Nandy a picture of a cake that I found off of Pinterest and her staff matched our cake to that picture 100%, it literally looked like the same exact cake, I was so pleased! Don the DJ (Nandy's husband) allows you to pick all your own songs and he has a great DJ personality, he got everyone on the dance floor with props, a fog machine, light show, and bubbles! Everyone had a spectacular evening dancing. If you really want to end the night on a magical note, they have a 1920s vintage automobile that you can ride away in as you wave your goodbyes as a married couple and I highly recommend it!! My husband and I felt like we were in the Great Gatsby novel as we rode away waving to all our guests and took a chauffeured ride down the street at night....truly fantastic! I couldn't believe that planning a wedding could be this easy, but Nandy and her staff make it possible. My guests are still raving about how this was the best wedding they have ever attended and that truly speaks volumes about the venue and its wonderful staff. If you want to get married in Florida, this is your spot! The memories we made that night at our wedding are truly monumental and it was by far the best night of our lives.
Town Manor provided an absolutely perfect wedding experience. The team at Town Manor made sure every detail was perfect for the special day. My Husband and I both went into the wedding planning process thinking we would never find "the place". Once we met Nandy, took a tour of Town Manor and got to speak with the employees at the location, we felt as if we were welcomed into the family and meant to have our wedding there. Nandy and her team made sure our wedding was high class, elegant, and a true representation of my husband and I. The food was absolutely delicious and not a single person left hungry, the cake and cupcake tower were delicious and looked too good to eat ( almost). The setting provided us with a breath taking backdrop for our military wedding. We are could not picture ourselves getting married at any other place. We hold our key to kingdom close to our hearts. We feel truly blessed to have found Nandy and the entire team at Town Manor. They made our day perfect and went over the top to make sure it was everything we imagined and more.
My husband and I chose Town Manor to get married at because hands down it was the best choice for us. Nandy and Don were so friendly and accommodating, we knew from the moment we visited that we wanted to be married at the Manor, experience the Manor Magic, and to become apart of the Manor Family. We loved the fact that at the Manor most every thing you need to get married is provided for you, and then some! The Manor offers a "one stop shop" wedding experience with the ability to provide services to you that at other venus you would have to seek out, research, and book for yourself. Some of these services include, catering, with both a sous chef and pasty chef on location, DJ services, Bartending services, and on site tables, chairs, and linens so there are no rentals to be done. Also, we liked the idea of the a la carte package options like on site overnight accommodation, driving off as husband and wife in the antique Town Manor car, and the littler things like a chocolate fountain, a champagne toast, and a pre-recption h'or dourves hour. The Manor was also able to provide a local preferred vendor list for the other services needed for a wedding, like photography, an officiant, and floral needs. At the Manor Nandy has her own dream team that she uses to help your day go as smoothly as it possibly can, and thats exactly what they did. Not to mention how responsive Nandy herself was whenever I had a question, always answering an email or the phone right away. Our guests were also so pleased with the experience they had at our wedding, and still let us know all the time. Not only do they talk about how beautiful the Manor is, but we got amazing feed back on the food and our cake. Some of the pickiest eaters in the world (my husband included) filled themselves with Chef's food, and I have heard that the cake was "the best I've ever had" from a particularly food savvy guest. We were very impressed with how the team at Town Manor executed our exact dreams and wishes for our wedding, and we experienced the Manor Magic ourselves when rain was forecasted all day long, but not a single drop fell until we drove off the property. Thank you Nandy and Don, and the rest of the dream team!!
A Dream Wedding Come True! Words can not express what a perfectly wonderful wedding day we had at Town Manor. Nandy and team did an amazing job pulling the day together. From the venue, weather, food, cake, music, dancing, coordinating-everything was more than we could have asked for! The venue is romantic, beautiful and private-the views CAN NOT be beat and the sunsets AMAZING! The reception area was decorated beautifully and I have had several compliments that our wedding was 'the best we've ever attended'. Nandy accommodated our special requests and the 'stress free' day I was hoping for was delivered! I only wish I could rewind and relive the day over and over! Our photographers had never been to the venue and they mentioned several times how great Nandy was to work with as well. Thank you Town Manor for making my wedding dreams come true!
