Venue Spotlight | Lange Farm | Dade City | Catering
Posted on February 10th, 2016 - Comments Off

The Lange Farm is a venue we’ve worked at since 2008 and is near and dear to us. It is a perfect mixture of both beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. This Dade City venue really takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As soon as you get on the grounds you’re filled with the type of peacefulness and calm that only comes from being outdoors.

Lange Farm boasts two areas to host your reception, the Garden House and the Antique Barn. The Garden House is very open with lots of windows and space including a patio with a built-in bar for cocktail hour as well as a porch perfect for your grand entrance.

The Antique Barn has a more intimate, romantic feel to it and has been recently renovated to provide more space for events. It’s the perfect spot for anything from your ceremony, to your cocktail hour, to the placement of a buffet. The outside area adjacent to the barn is a beautiful space for seating for your guests, especially when all lit up!

Wherever you chose to have your wedding at Lange Farm it is sure to be an enjoyable experience. We love the country- chic style and how the venue can feel either sophisticated or homey depending on how it is decorated, and wow is it gorgeous when all done up!

Venue Spotlight | The Vault | Downtown | Tampa Bay
Posted on January 15th, 2016 - Comments Off

Good Food Catering Company has worked with the Vault since 2010. The venue is ideal for weddings that have a classic feel to them. From the carved ceilings to the gleaming marble floors, this venue is the epitome of historical elegance. The Vault is actually an old bank that was re-purposed as an event space. Although the bank is no more, the vault that used to house money and belongings is still intact and makes this a unique space.

The main room is very open and has large windows and high ceilings that let in generous amounts of light, which make it perfect for both daytime and evening events. The Vault boasts an intimate courtyard area that works well for an indoor/outdoor space for cocktail hour. The venue is extremely versatile and can hold up to 200 guests for seated dinners and 300 for cocktail receptions. Even one of our own, Amy Kensinger chose this venue for her reception. She wanted her wedding to have a vintage feel and the Vault fit flawlessly with her vision. Her favorite things about the venue are its: architecture and the true historic nature of the building, the downtown Tampa location, the 35 ft high ceilings, and the picturesque outdoor courtyard area. Her sweetheart table is shown in the first two photos. The photographers for her wedding were Jake and Katie Ford of Jake & Katie Photography, who supplied the wonderful pictures of the Vault below.
