I’ve been to most of the wedding venues in Orlando. Some are spectacular the moment you step foot on the property, some need a little (or a lot of love) to make it feel like your special day. The following are my top picks for venues in Orlando that can make your heart flutter:
1. Bella Collina – If you want the sweeping lush feel of a vineyard, a garden party or the rich feel of a castle of stone…this is definitely the place for you. It’s one of the only venues in Central Florida that can offer a breathtaking view of green rolling hills and make you feel like the luckiest bride in the world.
Disclaimer: LARGE budget needed for this venue.
Max guests: ~200
Caterer: In house
2. Casa Feliz – This is another venue with greenery and stone work but within a more reasonable budget and in the heart of Winter Park. Ceremonies at sunset that fall into an outdoor lit reception are fabulous here. Not only that but if you want to take any photos on Park Avenue you’re only but a short walk away.
Max Guests: 125
3. Cypress Grove Estate House – If you’re on a budget and you want a hidden gem that you can make your own, Cypress Grove is a great venue. With 80 acres of cypress trees, the sprawling 1925 historic estate and Lake Jessamine as your backdrop, it’s hard to go wrong.
Max Guests: 300
Caterer: Big City Catering
4. The Abbey & The Mezz – If you’re looking for something a bit more contemporary and modern, this new hot spot aims to please. Located off Lake Eola it boasts tons of windows, fantastic lighting and design, and who can resist the thought that you’re already downtown for when the after party starts?
Max Guests: 250
Cost: New Venue – unknown
Caterer: They allow outside catering
