Beautiful by day,
Enchanting by night.

What people are saying about GiGi's Country Garden.

   ...Their wedding at Gigi’s Country Garden in Plant City, FL did not disappoint! The photos I looked up on Google looked pretty interesting and unique, but did not prepare me for seeing the unique, artistic, and creative space in person. Gigi’s space includes a plethora of all home-made glass, metal, found art, mixed-media sculptures, installations, and of course stunning vibrant plants. There are fountains made out of brass instruments, wine bottles, and classic cars. Intricate wood working including a water wheel, enormous fireplace, ceremony space, and bridge. While all of this looks charming during the day, it all comes to life as the sun sets, and dusk turns into night. The copious amount of carefully placed warm lights makes Gigi’s Country Garden something straight out of a fairytale.
   I’ve included a few more detail shots than I normally do because of just how magical the vibe of this space was. I hope to work there again, and hopefully with another couple who make our jobs easy!

If Gigi's doesn't bring out the little kid in you, nothing will.
   A bit of fantasia in Plant City, Gigi's falls somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Jungle Book. Fanciful signage leads you through a labyrinth of paths and waterways highlighted by whimsical sculptures and improbable waterfalls. Gloria and Frank Howard most certainly had a blast creating this special place.

Hidden Gem in Plant City Florida.
   A good friend of mine attended a wedding over the weekend and told me I have to check the venue out. So I looked it up online at www.gigiscountrygarden.com. It is as cute in person as it is in pictures. It is a little rustic garden. I have not personally attended a wedding at this venue but I trust my friend 100% and she said it was amazing! So if you are looking for a hidden gem of a location for a rustic outdoor wedding I recommend looking into Gigi’s County Garden in Plant City!

   Honestly, this place is a fairy tale. We were looking for something that would give us a fun, young vibe. The moment I walked in the gate, it took my breath away. Frank and Gigi have done a beautiful job with the decorations. It rained on our wedding day, up until about an hour before the ceremony. Frank and Gigi worked tirelessly to drain the extra water and the ceremony went on as planned. I wouldn't have had our wedding any other place. The pictures are beautiful - the venue set the whole atmosphere for the wedding. It was more of a fun, laid back backyard party, which is exactly what we wanted. Bonus: linens, center pieces and decor, it's all there! The owners answer fast via phone, text or email. They were willing to answer my hundreds of questions to make sure we were all at ease the day of.

   I really wanted an outdoor wedding, but we were getting married in Florida and most of the local gardens don't have proper shade/covering or they don't have a place or an outdoor reception. GiGi's is beautiful. We had our ceremony and reception there, a PA system was available, the garden was beautiful with many decorations already present, it was kid friendly (a lot of my guests have small children), and it's a beautiful venue for a night reception (there are lights in the trees and vintage fireplaces). The only down sides to the garden is that it cannot host a large wedding, it only seats 100.
