Heartwood Retreat Center Now Offers Wedding Services

May 07, 2014 07:23PM

Heartwood Retreat Center, a division of ReFlex Arts Studio, now provides a venue for weddings and special occasions.

Recommended for up to 100 guests, Heartwood provides ambiance, romance, and uniqueness to your event. This gorgeous venue affordably combines the ceremony and reception in one location. While each bride may choose the entrance that speaks to her, in most cases the wedding party chooses to prepare in spacious rooms of the main house or yoga center, while guests linger in the Chakra Garden or enjoy the grounds. When the ceremony begins, guests watch the bride begin her gorgeous entrance through the garden from beyond the garden wall and then they can move to be seated comfortably along the walkway with chairs lining the gazebo for the finale of the wedding walk to the altar. The bride walks over the bridge, through the garden and over the garden bridge, a striking picture opportunity, to meet the groom at a beautifully decorated wedding pavilion for the ceremony. For dusk ceremonies, the garden is lit with hundreds of romantic lights, creating delightful ambiance, while live music positioned in the garden can add intimacy. After the nuptials, the party can continue with the reception in the spacious wedding tent, near the Chakra garden and wedding gazebo area or the celebration can move to one of the other beautiful areas of Heartwood. All events are private. You may choose to work with a wedding planner for a more extravagant event, or use your own creativity and brainstorm with us to design your perfect wedding at Heartwood.

Location: 17505 Waterline Rd., Bradenton. For more information, phone 941-359-9642.
