Weddings/Events

With over two acres of stately oak trees which shade the lawn on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, the Burroughs Home is the ideal setting for your extraordinary wedding, reception, bridal shower, bridal tea and rehearsal dinner. The lush, hidden gardens are kept green and welcoming year-round. Constant attention is served to encourage gorgeous blooms during appropriate seasons. Historic Grotto, reflecting pool, flower beds, and fountains create a lavish setting that lends to the romantic ambiance. Choose from a large array of beautiful ceremony sites in the gardens and the home. Select between two reception sites, an intimate gathering under mature live oaks or a waterfront event site on the Caloosahatchee River.

Our event staff will make your special day extraordinary with the help of our preferred providers offering the following services: invitations, limo services, wedding cakes, horse and carriages, dance floors, catering packages, tuxedo rentals, DJ’s, live bands, tents, ministers, officiants, florists, photographers, videographers, decorators and equipment rental suppliers.

Even more exciting for 2015, a brand new open air pavilion is set to open on the backside of the property aligning the beautiful Caloosahatchee River.  The pavilion seats up to 300 people and prevents the extra cost of a tent.  There is no other place of its kind in downtown Fort Myers. The pavilion is a perfect setting for business conferences, reunions, socials and other special events.  Please call us for more info.
