Eastern Hillsborough & Polk County have some of the best Country Wedding Venues in the nation. All of our video packages include a Long Version of your wedding video that is usually 9omin-2 hours long. We give you the choice of having your wedding delivered digitally or on Blu Ray or DVD. As the Brandon and Eastern Hillsborough County area continues to grow, brides are having a variety of venues to choose from for their special day. From a ranches in Plant City to a beach resort in Ruskin there is something for every bride just east of Tampa.
The newest wedding venue is the Prairie Glenn Barn, operated by Florida Rustic Barn Weddings. The ceremony area provides spectacular surroundings with a canopy of trees perfectly lined up with the aisle. Cows moo-ing in the distance gives you the feeling you are in a rural atmosphere. The receptions are the Prairie Glenn Barn which was built by hand with reclaimed antique wood giving it the look of real wood unlike many other country wedding venues.
Cross Creek Ranch is one of the most beautiful outdoor country wedding venues in the Tampa Bay Area. It is located between Plant City & Brandon in eastern Hillsborough County. It has to be one of the cleanest outdoor wedding venues with a brick paved walkway, leading to the wooden country bridge over the creek. For larger weddings up to 150 guests, the Carriage House Stables which is now enclosed with air conditioning provides a great rustic atmosphere for the reception. For smaller weddings the French Country Inn provides classic charm. There are a variety of options for the ceremony from the natural setting under a huge Oak Tree or getting married in a quaint open air country chapel. The staff at Cross Creek Ranch is full service, the coordinators take care of everything for the bride, and the food is tremendous. As a photographer we love all the variety of backgrounds, from the lush greenery to the rustic buildings and bridge. They also have an Enchanted Forest Area, where you can get a nice variety of colors from the sun lighting up the foliage in the background like you see in the picture at the top. The Carriage House Stable is lit up with miniature lights and uniquely crafted chandeliers and really provides a soft intimate lighting for wedding video and photos during the reception.
Next on our wedding videographers tour is The Resort at Little Harbor, which has always been on of our favorite beach venues. It is ideal for guests coming in from out of town, because the hotel is right on the property. Unlike the Pinellas County Beaches it is not as crowded and theres plenty of conveniant parking. Our Photographers love Little Harbor, because you have a beach, a pier, rocks, grass, trees, all in one area. The room for the reception has a view to the beach, especially after a boat crashed into it! In February of 2015 a boat did crash into it, but all that is repaired.
Another popular Barn/Country Wedding Venue is the Wishing Well Barn in Plant City. Michelle and her staff at Wishing Well Barn just do an amazing job and so helpful and very obvious they they really care about the bride being happy. They allowed us to use their TVs inside the barn on this wedding below which displayed our video during the reception. The food is great and just first class service all around.
The Regent is located in the Brandon – Riverview area of eastern Hillsborough county, is a elegant venue for weddings. It has the largest dance floor of any wedding venue in the Bay Area. As a photographer we love the earth toned colored building, makes a great background for wedding photography. The grand stair case on the back patio of The Regent is great for group photos as we can stagger the subjects. We also love the area surrounding the regent, which is still being developed. When we shoot outward from the building we get a variety of colors in the background from the rich green grass to the lighter green vegetation, and earth toned color landscaping further in the background, provides for great contrast with pictures.
Within a mile from the Regent is The Barn at Winthrop, conveniently located on Bloomingdale Ave. It has a nice red brick paved outside are on the side of the barn for ceremonies which looks great at night with the mini lights overhead as you can see in the video below.
In Lakeland, Hollis Garden provides an amazingly beautiful, colorful backdrop for a wedding. In this wedding below we flew a drone for the processional, something that we do not normally do because of the noise of the drone. However, in this situation the aisle of the garden is so long that we could fly the drone near the back of the aisle and yet the guests could not hear it, so it provided a great shot for the bride walking down.
The Palmetto Club at Fishhawk Ranch in Lithia has long been one of the most popular venues on our wedding videographers Brandon tour. The Palmetto Club’s is ideal for weddings with a beautiful courtyard with waterfall and the expandable indoor ballroom that can accomodate large weddings. For smaller weddings see the Embassy Suites in Brandon or the Hilton Garden Inn in Riverview.
If you are looking for a church wedding Nativity Catholic Church is great for a creative photographers and videographers with such things as the iron gates in front of the church. We are, also able to get behind the altar, (unlike most churches), because of the little 4 ft wall, which covers us so that we are not distractive, yet allows us to get facial shots of the bride and groom during the ceremony.
This concludes our wedding videographers Brandon Tour. If you have any questions about Brandon Wedding venues or our video services please feel free to contact us.
