To reserve an event after January 1, 2019 there will be an increase. All 2019 Events will reflect an 200.00 dollar increase across the board.
Extra Fees & Costs
1. Over 100 guests an extra fee of 500.00 dollars will be required. Also I’m, since we only have two restrooms on the property you will need to rent two Port-a-Potties to comfortably accommodate your extra guests.

2. All Day Set up Fee- Sometimes our bridal parties do their own decorations and they need the time to go and relax and change before the wedding. To reserve the entire day there is an extra 500.00 fee. This is not extra event hours this is extra set up time.

3. If any liquor is served other than wine or beer a  licensed bartender and event rental insurance will be required. This is needed to protect the Retreat Center and those holding the event from being sued should someone have an accident on their way home.
4. Extra Event  or Rehearsal Hours are at the rate of 250.00 dollars.
5. You may use your own vendors or caterers. We have no restrictions. All vendors will have to clean up and take down anything they set up. Nothing can be left on the property overnight because of other events.

You will receive an Invoice on the first of the month of your event via email.  No refunds of any amounts paid 1 week (7 days) before an event. There will be a 3.5% Square/Register fee for all credit card use.

We want you to have the best time of your life when you choose to use Cedar Bay Retreat. We know you won’t read this on any other venue site. We are reasonable people and we will work with you to make it affordable!  Call us 904-928-9000

  • I would like to see more pictures and interested in possibly setting up an appointment to view the property. I am planning my wedding on April 8, 2017


  • Hi, I was looking at your beautiful venue. I was wondering do you have​ any tours set up for Thursday or Sunday. My fiancee and I are very interested in looking at this venue. Also do y’all do the ceremony as well as the reception.

  • I was looking at your venue and LOVE it. I am only in need of a ceremony venue for about 45 minutes for 75 people. We have already booked another location for our reception. Is the cost still the same for the wedding/reception if I am not wanting a reception?
