Covington Farms: Where Love Blossoms Amidst Ancient Oaks

Florida's Award-Winning Photographer and Cinematographer: Rising Lotus Photography & Films


Nestled on 75 rolling green acres, Covington Farm is more than just a venue—it’s a canvas where love stories come alive. As the sun dances through the moss-hung branches of ancient oaks, Hannah and Gunnar’s wedding unfolded against a backdrop that whispered tales of Old Florida charm.

A Serene Oasis

Covington Farm, situated on the shores of Buddy Lake and Lake Pasadena, exudes tranquility. The pastures stretch out like a lush green carpet, inviting guests to wander and explore. And there, in the heart of Dade City, Florida, this hidden gem awaits, just a short drive from major hotels.

The Ceremony Site: Where Dreams Begin

Under the majestic oaks, the lakeside ceremony site awaits. Antique doors swing open, revealing a paver-lined aisle that leads to a rustic wooden arbor. Wooden padded chairs stand ready, each one a seat for a witness to love’s promise. The air is thick with anticipation as Hannah and Gunnar step into their forever.

Capturing Moments: Lakeside and Golden Field

After the vows are exchanged, the newlyweds venture to the lakeside, where the water mirrors their joy. The oaks, guardians of secrets and stories, frame their first moments as husband and wife. And up on the hill, in the hayfield, they steal kisses against a golden sunset. As a photographer, I chase these fleeting seconds, preserving them in pixels and memories.

Guests’ Delight: Hors d’Oeuvres and Hidden Gems

While Hannah and Gunnar pose for timeless newlywed portraits, their guests gather for cocktail hour. Here, an antique bar beckons, wooden spools transform into cozy seating, and antique church pews hold whispered conversations. The fire pit crackles behind the barn, casting a warm glow. And yes, there’s a discreet, air-conditioned restroom—because comfort matters.

The Grand Reveal: Behind the Modern Barn Doors

As the sun dips low, guests are led to the front of the modern barn. The massive doors swing open, revealing an elegant reception area. Crystal chandeliers hang from the rafters, casting a soft glow on the dance floor. The air hums with laughter and music, and Hannah and Gunnar step into a room transformed—a celebration of love, family, and new beginnings.

Covington Farm—weaving dreams into reality, one love story at a time. Hannah and Gunnar, may your journey be as timeless as the oaks that witnessed your vows.
