  • I knew from the moment I stepped foot through the door of Golden Ocala that this was my venue. I'd spent a lot of time searching venues and going on tours and nothing was cutting it. I was really beginning to think my dream venue was going to be out of budget and I was going to have to settle. Then, I took a chance on a venue that was out of the way and boy was that the best decision I ever made. This place is seriously a hidden gem. From the grand entrance and beautiful tree-lined road to the club house, it definitely packs a punch. Don't even get me started on the chandeliers in the ballroom and the stunning staircase leading down from the balcony. It's classy, elegant and just jaw-dropping. It screams luxury wedding, but doesn't carry that price tag. My guests could NOT stop talking about how gorgeous this place was and how it was one of the most beautiful venues they'd seen! In addition, to the visuals, the staff at Golden Ocala were amazing and super accommodating. About ... Read more

  • I have nothing bad to say about Golden Ocala. We toured the venue about 1.5 years in advance. We were asked if I wanted to book the date and I couldn't commit yet. When we came back, we found out they reserved the date for us because they knew we would come back. I am so glad we did. When we first started, Julianne was our coordinator. I know there are mixed reviews about her but she was very pleasent with us. A few months before our wedding, Julianne stopped working here. I was very impressed at how everyone came together to answer my questions and take care of me. The new coordinator, Alisa, is amazing. She made sure everything went smoothly and was quick to answer all my questions. My day of coordinator, Nikki, is one of the best people I have ever met. She made sure we were happy and well taken care of from the rehearsal to the day after. She was so attentive and made sure everything was how we wanted it. The rehearsal dinner was at the spa and was perfect. The wedding itself was g... Read more

  • Where do I even begin. From the very first moment my husband and I had walked into Golden Ocala, we knew off the bat this is where we were getting married. Between the several beautiful places to have the ceremony and also the options to have the reception, we were head over heels. The grounds are beautiful and the workers are extremely helpful. The food was so on point that I received many compliments about it. Everything was absolutely perfect. Julianne, who is amazing, seriously helped me since the moment we met her to the very next morning after the wedding. She was so patient and understanding and worked with us the whole time. She made sure my day-of ran as smoothly as possible and it did!! I love Julianne and again want to thank her so much for helping my day come true!!!!! We highly recommend Golden Ocala with Julianne as your wedding planner!

  • I can truthfully say that Julianne and her team made our wedding! I could not have done it without her help. She was there every step of the way and such a pleasure to work with! Her recommendations on vendors gave us the wedding day dream team. Words cannot thank her enough for everything. Golden Ocala is a 5 star venue for a wedding. We first had our hearts set on a wedding in the garden but changed day of to the portico because of weather and I am SO happy we did - it was even more gorgeous than I could have even imagined. If you are even remotely considering Golden Ocala, schedule a meeting with Julianne and I promise you, you will not be disappointed! Chef created the most wonderful cocktail hour and reception food. It truly was a dream!

  • Making the decision of where to declare your never ending love is difficult but it doesn't have to be. If you choose to go with Golden Ocala and Julianne, you are almost done with this aspect of the planning. There is very little else to decide regarding venues. Julianne and her staff were professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly. The grounds are picturesque and the clubhouse is gorgeous from the portico to the ballroom to the veranda. I cannot say enough great things about Julianne and Golden Ocala. Brad and Courtney's special day was everything they wanted and more. Cheers!

  • As a minister for over 30 years, I have conducted and attended numerous weddings. Yet, I can truly say that nothing has come close to the superlative experience we enjoyed at Golden Ocala for the marriage of our son and his bride. We were captivated immediately by the exquisite natural beauty of the grounds and surroundings, matched with grand facilities to create a one-of-a-kind venue. Julianne Cuomo’s grace, warmth and thorough professionalism was a joy. She and her staff handled the myriad details with patience, flexibility, and expertise, and the responsiveness to our needs was so reassuring. We chose the option of selecting Julianne as our personal wedding coordinator. Her creative suggestions and guidance helped us immensely. A wide range of fabulous gourmet food was available for creating our reception menu, which we sampled at our private food-tasting. A delightful pool-side brunch with family preceded our rehearsal, where Julianne’s experienced leadership helped al... Read more

  • I looked for months at different venues and never was satisfied with the options... until I came to Golden Ocala. I fell in love instantly and knew that no matter what, this is where I wanted to get married. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out how reasonably priced they are! I felt like I was given much more than what I paid for throughout the entire wedding planning experience. I had many meetings with the coordinator, Julianne, who was so willing to help us and accommodate to our needs. They provided an entire meal for the food tasting which was some of the best food that I have had. The venue itself is so gorgeous and well-kept that I found that I did not need as many additional decorations as I might need at other places. We had plenty of spaces and rooms available to us so that the bridal party was able to get ready in our own little areas of the building. On my wedding day, I had the coordinator, a personal attendant, and several other people by my side for the entire day... Read more

  • From the moment we stepped on the property to well after our event we experienced an unparalleled level of friendliness and professionalism from all of Golden's staff. This was a time period of about 14 months. There are no words that can do justice to our happiness with my daughters wedding. We were welcomed for our bridal shoot, countless planning visits, the rehearsal dinner, the wedding itself and post wedding pick ups of personal items. They were very flexible and accommodating with every request. Julianne's knowledge and experience brought the peace of mind you need with an event that requires so much detail. As mother of the bride I literally didn't worry about anything on our day. The food was delicious! Many guests commented on the freshness and quality of the food. Thank you Julianne and all of Golden Ocala for everything!

  • I just wanted to take a moment and leave some feedback regarding our wedding that was held at the Golden O'Cala on 4/1/2016, it was simply beautiful. The grounds were gorgeous, the food was cooked to perfection, and Julianne Cuomo was simply amazing to work with. I highly recommend this location for a wedding and I highly recommend Julianne and her 'A' team as she calls it. She has a list of vendors who know the area and have worked there multiple times. Very professional.

  • My husband and I married here on March 4, 2016! After comparing prices, it truly was the best option - minimal decorating needed due to how beautiful it already in , included all food and drink costs, plus cocktail hour, appetizers, linens, silverware/ dining necessities... I can't even count how many times people have stressed that this was the best food they've ever had at any wedding! All the staff went above and beyond for any/everything. The option to have a wedding coordinator, Julianne Cuomo, was absolutely great and she was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this option for a huge amount of stress to be lifted off your shoulders on your day. Not a single guest went without commenting on how beautiful it was there and stressing what a wonderful time they had.

    Thank you Katie! I had the time of my life at your wedding, watching you, Keith and your amazing children unite as a family! It was a sincere pleasure working with you in the creation of your dream wedding day. It is people like you that make me so passionate about what I do... You are so fun and easy-going, making my job so very enjoyable! Have fun settling in for a long and happy life with your new, amazing "family"!!! Love you guys ~ Julianne

  • Dear Julianne Cuomo, Thank you so much for organizing such successful catering and planning arrangements for my daughter's wedding. The day went very smoothly and everything was organized down to the minutest detail. It was done very thoroughly and expertly. Your meticulous planning paid off and ensured the event progressed seamlessly. Thank you for the excellent meal; it was thoroughly enjoyed by our guest. Your staff members were attentive and efficient, the service was discreet and professional and the quality of food excellent. When Duane and Jennibelle left the venues, they were surprised with items from the wedding. What a wonderful gesture from your staff. We cannot thank you enough for all your help and thoughtfulness during this stressful time and the organization on the day was superbly carried out. We have had nothing but compliments on the food, service and arrangements from all our friends. In light of this, please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for such a p... Read more

    Thank you so very much Oscar! You were more than a pleasure to work with… your attention to detail and most sincere concern for the perfect outcome of your daughter’s wedding touched my heart, and honestly pushed me to work harder, striving for absolute perfection! Because people like you, and especially Jennibelle, deserve nothing less! I will remember you and your beautiful family always…and will secretly hope that all of my future brides and their families are as wonderful as you are! Warmest regards, ~ Julianne

  • Julianne Cuomo is one of the single most professional, accommodating, and genuine people I've had the pleasure to work with in my career. Planning a wedding is without question, stressful. Julianne's calm demeanor, coupled with the expertise with which she guided us through the entire planning process and the day of helped make this day so special for my daughter and new son- in-law. She managed to do all of this in the face of our florist and decorator, showing up 2 hours late for setup; thereby, creating a fire drill for everyone. In addition, we planned an outdoor ceremony and the weather was questionable but ultimately came through for a beautiful ceremony. In the meantime, Julianne expertly dealt with reluctant guests and guided everyone to their seats. She calmly directed everything and never lost her cool. I recommend her highly to anyone who is looking for a beautiful venue and the ultimate professional planner for your wedding!
