Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens {Williston, Florida}

 Looking for a beautiful Florida Wedding Venue?  Or maybe an escape with some natural beauty for a day of relaxation?   Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens is a beautiful botanical garden in Williston, Florida.  You will discover numerous water falls, KOI ponds and gorgeous gardens in a 100 year old retired lime rock quarry.  It really is a super cool place to visit. I think I could spend all day sitting and reading by one of the water falls. So peaceful and beautiful.

The quarry walls are lined with concrete planters and benches.  You will find plenty of places to stop and enjoy the scenery, catch a breath and if you choose enjoy a beautiful picnic .  Definitely a breath of fresh air from every day life when you escape to this setting.

Future brides have their choice of where they would like the ceremony held at Cedar Lakes.  They can set up in front of the water fall, or on Palm Tree Island, a small chapel , there are so many different locations one might choose.   I think this would be a beautiful choice for a Florida wedding venue. Complete with swans  Lancelot and Guinevere.

Cedar Lakes is also ideal for company retreats , reunions or special events.  Call Lori for pricing and a tour.  352-812-2279
