Kick it off in Gainesville
Weddings and honeymoons are a special point in life. The setting for the day is almost as important as the ceremony itself. When you reflect back each year it is the where that you remember. Gainesville is ready to be that place.
The natural side of Florida is waiting for you here. Hundred year old live oaks create the perfect backdrop as you begin your lives together. November through April is when the beauty of Gainesville shines brightest.
The Sweetwater Branch Inn, in the historic downtown, provides all you need to make your day the highlight it should be. Wonderful accommodations, a beautiful reception space and a supremely talented catering staff are at your disposal for a magical memory. Leave it to them and they will keep the focus where it belongs, on you.
The crown jewel of the historic district is the Thomas Center. A restored mansion, the Thomas Center offers the grounds for the ceremony along with the two story high Spanish Court for the reception. Natural light from the skylight cascading down over your reception merges the beauty of nature with the historic architecture.
We can’t wait to help you feel special. Let us be the setting on your day. Gainesville, Where Nature and Culture Meet.
