  • Without this historical gem our wedding would have never been all it was. The property is absolutely stunning. The fact that there are Airbnb’s on the property make it even more worth it. Thank you!!

  • We ended up at The Veranda after our original venue was condemned. They were offering a special for people affected by the condemnation, which was beyond generous and certainly helped ease the stress of losing our first venue. Gerald, the event coordinator, was so amazing from the beginning. He made the whole process so easy. We had a vision of having a petting zoo, and he totally ran with it and didn’t tell us no. It ended up being a hit! I can’t say enough how amazing Gerald was to work with. I wasn’t worried about anything on my big day because I knew we were in good hands. Gerald was always so responsive and made us feel at ease. It was a bummer losing our first venue, but I believe everything happens for a reason. In hindsight, it was the best thing that could have happened. We found The Veranda and we found Gerald and we had a beyond perfect day.

  • Gerald is an amazing individual and fantastic at what he does. He was available for us whenever needed and went out of his way to ensure things went smoothly. The venue looked even better at night all lit up with the lights and all of our needs were fully met. We would choose The Veranda again in a heart beat.

  • The Veranda at Thorton Park was the PERFECT venue for our wedding. We instantly fell in love when we saw the venue. They have beautiful string lights everywhere. Cyndi was really helpful giving us ideas for vendors, and always available for any questions. They let you plan your wedding however you want to, and work with a large variety of vendors. Gerald Wagner – Young was heaven-sent. He truly made our dream wedding come true. He helped with everything from the floorplans, to the wedding timeline, to the day of coordination. Everything ran so smoothly, we couldn’t of asked for a better venue and better people to work with. They do everything they can to make sure you have the best day of your life. Highly, highly recommend. If I could give more fire more than five stars I would!!!

  • The Veranda at Thornton Park is a wonderful wedding venue in a perfect location. Before we got engaged, we knew about the venue and thought it was a beautiful and unique space. As we started planning our wedding, our first thought was that we wanted to have our wedding at The Veranda. We met with Gerald Wagner-Young and immediately knew it would be the best choice of venue for our wedding. It is always decorated with strings of lights, lots of plants, and cool colors, and the layout is open and versatile for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception however you'd like them to be set up. The Veranda is open to a variety of vendors, too. We are so glad that our wedding was at The Veranda, and we would recommend planning to have your wedding here with Gerald, too!

Gerald was our event planner was the moment I met him, I knew the process will go smoothly & seamlessly. He was responsive, professional, dependable, and flexible. He was there from start to finish on the day of event. Even our guests paid him & the venue loads of compliments. The venue itself was so accommodating and beautiful. We all had FUN and could not have done it without the help of Gerald and his team. I will definitely recommend d Gerald and the Veranda for your next event!

  • The Veranda at Thornton Park is a beautiful, charming and versatile venue for any celebration. We are so happy to have had our wedding ceremony and reception at this incredibly unique and special place in October 2017. From the moment we met the venue's coordinator, Gerald Wagner-Young, we were so impressed by his warmth and professionalism. Gerald is deeply passionate about the excellent work that he does, and he will go to great lengths to ensure that your big day is everything you want it to be. He will make you laugh, feel supported, and help you enjoy every step along the way. He has become a good friend to us. The Veranda is a visual feast of bright, happy colors with wide open cobblestone courtyards that seamlessly flow together. You are surrounded by history of century old homes while being wrapped in a causal charm that is decidedly Key West. Our guests sipped mojitos poolside and salsa danced the night away under a canopy of glowing market lights. Every corner of Th... Read more

  • We could not be happier with the beautiful venue!! The cleanliness, professionalism, quality, location, and most amazing event coordinator Gerald, was second to none!! In the evening when the lights were on in the courtyard, it seemed absolutely magical!! I will definitely only use the veranda for any future events! I highly recommend this venue for any event needs!

  • We recently held the Launch Party for Come Out With PRIDE Orlando at the Veranda. It was a hugely successful event. The Veranda is centrally located in Thornton Park and has a beautiful courtyard. The staff are friendly and helpful and easy to work with. A great venue all around!

  • The Veranda at Thornton Park was my immediate first choice when searching for the perfect wedding venue. Cindy saw my vision, listened, gave amazing advice, and completely blew me away for my spring wedding. It was absolutely above and beyond my expectations and vision. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. I highly reccommend it to anyone looking for the perfect courtyard wedding and THE MARKET LIGHTS are unbeatable.

  • Veranda was the first venue that I visited after we got engaged, and I knew immediately that we needed to have our wedding there. Although we knew the entire ceremony/reception would need to be outside and that is risky in Florida, no where else that we looked felt right to us other than Veranda. Leading up to the wedding, we worked with Cindy to create a flawless day - she was so great and so patient with all of my OCD bridal worries! Right after our dinner started, the rain came down like crazy. (Luckily, we had tented the dinner and reception area!) I hadn't seen a storm like that in a long time, but Cindy and her crew were great at staying calm, keeping me and my family calm, and our guests happy. She worked so smoothly with the caterer, bartenders, and DJ to keep the night going! Finally when the storm let up, all of our vendors were soaked from their hard work to make our wedding as great as possible (including the staff at Veranda!) and it showed their serious commitment to mak...

  • We feel so blessed to have found Cindy and the Veranda. Cindy is an amazing woman, she took much of the wedding plan stress off of us and we knew we could always count on her. The venue was beautiful and we had delicious food catered by the Little Lamb. Thank you so much for making our wedding day special, memorable and fun!!!
