What a peaceful, beautiful place. It was absolutely perfect place for a reception. Although the wedding was held in a local church, The Retreat at Bradley''s Pond would be a perfect place for a wedding. Thank you for your kindness to my nephew and his new bride.
I truly enjoyed having my wedding at Bradley''s Pond!! Everything went smooth and as planned with no problems, it was just as beautiful as I imagined it!!! Everyone had a fabulous time, thanks again Bradley''s & also thank you Kathy for being patient and easy to work with!!!
I would love to give pictures for your site!!
I would just like to say thank you! We had our wedding at Bradley''s Pond and it was gorgeous!! It really was the perfect location - a great price for the entire day, no required vendors, and a location with indoor and outdoor elements that isn''t a park with random people walking by during your vows. Kathy and Michael were both great to work with. I would recommend it to anyone!
Thank you to everyone at The Retreat at Bradley''s Pond for making our special day PERFECT in every way. Michael and Mr. Page were very accomodating in every sense of the word. They are so kind and down to earth. Every vendor we chose was helpful, on time and did everything they promised and more. A huge thank you to A Touch of Class Florist, Premier Catering, GT Entertainment, Lisa''s Bartending, Svenson Images and of course, Bradley''s Pond! Can''t wait to celebrate there again!!!
I would like to personally thank you and your staff. Our day was amazing. The scene was so pretty and it all turned out to be beautiful. We really enjoyed all the Bradley''s Pond and Retreat had to offer and I am definitely recommending this location to all my friends.
P.S. I would love to send you some pictures to post to the site.
Bradley''s was the absolute perfect place for our daughter''s wedding and here are all the reasons why!
*You let us in to plan and measure and meet with the caterer when the facility was not in use.
It is so convenient to have the tables and chairs there as well as chairs available for rent for the outside.
The rules, regulations and information provided was concise and complete.
We chose our vendors from your beautiful website and the pictures aided us in our decorating plans.
The property and building are beautiful and well maintained.
You graciously answered all our questions Kathy!
Many thanks to you, Mr. Page and Michael for making our day one beautiful event.Hope to send pictures soon.
Best Regards, Judi Sheppard
Thank you to everyone at Bradley's! My husband and I tied the knot on September 28th of this year and we absolutely loved it! The location was beautiful and everything was perfect!! Anyone looking to get married should contact Kathy and reserve your date!
Thanks to Kathy and the Paiges our wedding day was absolutely perfect! They were so helpful and easy to work with. My husband Jason and I could not have asked for a more perfect day! The pond and facility are absolutely gorgeous and photograph really well. If you love the outdoors, a secluded and peaceful atmosphere, and want to make your wedding planning a lot easier you have to book at Bradley''s Pond! Thanks to Kathy and the Paiges for all of your help! You are the best. We will forward some wedding photos soon!

Kathy -- Our Holiday Party was a huge success! A tremendous THANK YOU to Bradley''s Pond Staff for providing such professional, courteous service.

May you all have a happy and prosperous year!
Here''s my test [#4]. I should get an email demanding that I confirm who I am.
Dear Kathy and Mr. Page,
Thank you so much for all the help when we had our wedding at Bradley''s Pond. It is such a beautiful setting and was the perfect choice for us. Everyone had a great time and we got so many compliments on the location. It was very easy working with you and we appreciate everything that went in to making our day special.

I would like to say thank you!! The Retreat at Bradley''s Pond was a beautiful location for our wedding. Everything turned out absolutely FABULOUS. It took us a year to plan our wedding. We looked at many facilities in Tallahassee, but none of them were as breathtaking as this facility. Just the natural beauty alone made the photos magical. We appreciate all of the flexibility and helpfulness that you gave us. Thanks for making our day the best and most memorable moment ever. We would love to share our pictures with you.
I would just like to thank Kathy and the crew at Bradley's Pond, I recently coordinated a wedding on 04/15/2007 and it turned out marvelous, I know the bride and groom were very pleased. I will make sure I suggest your facility if anyone is looking for a very nice place to have ANY event.
I attended a wedding at Bradley's Pond and I was totally impressed with your grounds. I live in Michigan and when my other 3 daughters get married both my husband and I will recommed your facillity. We were impressed with the natural beauty and the service we received as guests. I understand you just recently opened , when word gets out you will become popular.
Kudos to The Retreat at Bradley''s Pond & Kathy Armstrong! I decided to plan my wedding myself (to ensure that I would make every detail of my dream come true & not to become Bridezilla). I searched for months for facilities that would allow you to select your own caterer and that have adequate space. Bradley''s was last on the list for my husband & I to view, but the first facility that we absolutely adored; the location, facility, cleanliness, restroom, room for the bride,the contract, owners & employees, etc. I spoke with Kathy who put me in contact with Michael Paige so I may view the inside of the facility. We visited several times to show the facility to other members of our family. I initially drafted a floor plan for an outside wedding ceremony at dusk near the pond, but revamped my idea for indoors due to the temperature estimated for that date. I''m sure that I made that decision because there was not a breeze in the air until night fell. Bradley''s Pond & Mrs. Kathy exceeded our expectations and helped make our precious moment more than just a dream come true. Thank you Kathy & Michael! I''m planning a family reunion & my 1st wedding anniversary and look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
Kathy Armstrong and the Paiges are the most responsive, helpful, and flexible people you could hope to work with. Every request is responded to promptly and if at all possible, with a "yes" as your answer. They graciously and generously give of their time and always in the most congenial manner. The facility worked out extremely well for our daughter''s wedding. The setting is absolutely beautiful - mother nature has blessed this location. The facility is functional and can be "dressed up" to look any way you want. And all equipment and systems in the reception hall work very well and the acoustics are very good. Our experience was 100% positive and I agree with the person who said as the word gets out, it will get more difficult to book this place.
Personally, I loved it. I can''t think of anything they should change. I have heard nothing but praises on both the location and the actual retreat, even from those that you wouldn''t normally get that from. I think it was a huge success!
Good Afternoon, I thought that it was a wonderful place, from the open space, the AC working appropriately, to the artificial duck in the lake (should add more cause he did look a little lonely). Overall, I believe the entire group was very satisfied with the facility. Once word gets out of it''s existence I think it will be a big success. Thank you, Phyllis I have received the following comments from other committee members: "I was very pleased with the facility. It was worth the drive. They were the most helpful people I''ve ever dealt with on such matters. It was big, beautiful, clean and cool." "I thought the place was great. A lot of room, I would definitely use the place again." "I think everything went great, I don''t think there is anything that we did not have or need. I say lets make it an every Friday affair."
Thank you Kathy! I am sooo thankful that God allowed me to see that hard work and perseverance pays off! It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting & working with you & Michael. After running across the chat room that mentioned Bradley’s Pond, I then saw you at the bridal show in the Tallahassee Mall and thought that the facility would be too small. After finalizing our guest list, my husband & I decided to cut the list down and visit the facilities that I had researched together. Bradley’s Pond was the second to the last one the list. We fell in love with it instantly and searched no further!! One day, I’ll get a chance tell you of the fairy tale engagement that my husband gave to me on August 1, 2005: completely a dream never imagined. Kathy, thank you again for everything (encouragement too) and assisting with part 2 of my never imagined dream!
