About the Ceremony
Tavares Pavilion on the Lake offers a simple alternative to courthouse weddings in a beautiful setting located in our Pavilion Gardens. Simple ceremonies are $75 and are available on Wednesday's from the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Advance appointments are required; please call 352-253-4300 to schedule.
A valid marriage license must be obtained in advance, issued by a Florida Clerk of the Circuit Court. All marriages are performed by a Notary Public. You can dress up, or come as you are.
The civil ceremony performed is very simple, dignified and nondenominational. Like a traditional courthouse wedding, the ceremony is only a few minutes long. Couples may write their own vows, within the parameters of the time allotted.
