As a professional wedding photographer, it is my job to help make your decision easier, or at least provide you with a few options in the Central Florida area that are top-quality for any beautiful bride and groom. The following top five wedding venues are listed in no particular order, so be sure to check out each one!
Probably one of the most sought after wedding venues in Orlando is Casa Feliz… a stunning Spanish farmhouse that has been restored and remodeled to accommodate modern living while retaining its classic, historical charm. The architecture of this home truly captures the romance of Spanish design, featuring a front lawn and courtyard that can sit up to 120 wedding guests for a ceremony or reception.
Both a bride and groom’s suite can be found upstairs, fully furnished for relaxation and pre-wedding preparations. Florida weather is often unpredictable, but for outdoor weddings, the courtyard space can be tented to protect against light rain or wind.
For the bride and groom wanting a fully outdoor wedding venue, The Acre Orlando is perfect. This wedding venue sits on one acre of land in Central Orlando’s historic College Park neighborhood. Access to a bridal suite and groom’s lounge is included in 2/3 of their package options, but exclusive access to the whole acre is included in all three packages.
This wedding venue makes the top five list for beautiful, rustic outdoor photography. The gardens are gorgeous, and the overall environment is very romantic for sharing those special words, “I do.”
** Sidenote 🙂 I believe The Acre to be one of the best wedding venues in Orlando for micro weddings and elopements!
As the name suggested, The Balcony Orlando is nested eleven stories high above the streets of Downtown Orlando. If looking out at the night sky surrounded by the city’s glow is more your style, then this wedding venue in downtown Orlando might be the perfect one for you.
Your wedding party can book this space and enjoy over 100,000 square feet of outdoor (balcony) area plus 6,000 square feet of indoor area. Tie the knot overlooking Orlando’s skyline, and you’ll feel on top of the world- literally.
Paradise Cove Orlando is the closest you can get to a gulf beach wedding while remaining in Central Florida. This venue is situated on Lake Bryan, offering a beautiful private beach wedding experience for both ceremonies and receptions.
A tiki bar, tiki torches, palm trees, and other beachy elements create a scenic space for Hawaii-esque photography. Your wedding party will feel like they are in a tropical paradise at this top Central Florida wedding venue.
This top wedding venue brings loads of Old Florida sophistication and charm. The history of this sprawling mansion goes back to 1883, and at one point, it was a 9,000-acre preserve. The home and gardens were created to resemble Mediterranean Revival and Asian architectural style.
With 13 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, there is enough space for the grandest of ceremonies or receptions. Syndonie Mansion won the WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Awards in both 2019 and 2020, so there’s no wonder why this wedding venue made the list for best in Orlando, FL.
And there you have it. My Top 5 Beautiful Wedding Venues in Orlando, FL. There are so many more stunning wedding venues in Florida and my wish is to photograph them ALL!
