Up The Creek Farms is a breathtaking venue in South Brevard County located on eight picturesque acres filled with huge trees, Spanish moss, and white post fences. This Old Florida wedding venue exudes pure southern charm.
The property at Up the Creek Farms is the original homestead of one of the area’s first pioneers, Ernest Svedelius. Ernest migrated from Stockholm, Sweden to the east coast of Florida and built a two-story frame house in the 1870’s. He began an orange grove and started a wholesale fish camp at the head of the creek that runs the length of the property to the Indian River Lagoon. Svedelius is purported to have named the town of Valkaria after Valkyre, a maiden of Norse mythology.
Up the Creek Farms is owned and operated by Jessica and Tim Watson who live on the property in the 140-year-old Decklan House with their two labs Max and Parker.
Hosting only one event per day, Up The Creek Farms offers couples privacy and full use of the farm. There are several breathtaking locations to host your wedding ceremony and fantastic locations for wedding photos at every turn.
