Herlong Wedding Album * Guest Book * Vendors


The trill of a bird, moss floating from ancient oaks in the breeze and the sound of water falling from the garden fountain lends any affair a quiet elegance that only nature can provide. Our award winning gardens and spacious lawns are perfect for tastefully elegant gatherings and celebrations.


The Herlong specializes in small, intimate weddings and events against the mansion and garden backdrop. We will be happy to discuss and help you with your arrangements. To find out more or or make an appointment, call us at (352) 466-3322. Read further for more information.


Weddings & Garden Weddings

The Herlong Mansion staff is skilled in making dreams come true. You may wish to share a garden service at the gazebo with a few friends and family or you might like to invite guests to a more formal service, followed by a reception under the stars. Whatever your dream, we're available to assist so that your special day is relaxing and enjoyable for everyone, including you!
