Located just outside of Tallahassee in quiet, quaint Havana, Florida, Havana Springs Resort has a rich history coupled with modern elegance and convenience all perfectly pulled together by owners Jose and Merissa. Nate from Amplify actually remembers eating there as a young boy when it was Nicholson Farmhouse years ago. Today, its picturesque 50 acres of old-Florida-bed-and-breakfast vibe welcome guests to an enchanting wedding day.
The primary venue at Havana Springs Resort is the remarkable Shady Rest Event Center, built in 1925, which can host up to 200 guests and includes full-service catering and bar. Ceremonies are typically hosted by the majestic, 200-year-old oak tree. Chairs are set up and included for wedding ceremonies and we will often see a bride riding up in a vintage car just before walking down the aisle.
For overnight stays (highly recommended!), Havana Springs Resort features the 1880 Salem House, the Littman House, the Wildflower Cottage, and 1828 Nicholson House. Guests can also wander around the site to check out the old general store and other vintage buildings that make the resort feel like a small town from the distant past.
A beautiful venue with incredibly kind and accommodating owners, Havana Springs Resort should definitely make your short list of top venue considerations for your wedding!

- In the winter and fall, we love when our clients set up the outside space with a fire pit, cafe lights, and high-top tables for the ultimate hang-out vibe! Oftentimes guests will move inside for dinner and then make their way back outdoors to start the dance party!
- Our Custom Monogram Lighting is often placed just under the gable of the outside of Shady Rest and it looks great throughout the entire reception!
