Orlando Wedding Venues
In and near the Orlando area, there is a wedding venue for everyone. From Ballrooms to Barns, Central Florida has it all. Just as there is a perfect wedding venue for every newly engaged couple, there is also a perfect wedding venue (or venues) for every wedding photographer. Today, I’m going to share with you my favorite Orlando Wedding Venues.
My husband and I had the most amazingly beautiful Mansion Wedding almost 6 years ago. If a mansion was my own wedding venue, it of course makes sense that any Mansion/Estate venue (as you will see by this list) is near and dear to my heart. This Historic Mansion had been abandoned, and was put on the market just a few short years ago. After its purchase, the new owners wasted no time restoring the home and decided that it made sense to offer it as a wedding venue. It’s truly one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever been to. For me, it has everything I love in a venue. It has indoor and outdoor space, which I think is so important for a Florida Wedding Venue. The mansion itself gives you the most incredible backdrop. The architecture is phenomenal and it is full of ornate windows and picturesque archways. The exterior walls have this amazing fine art feel to them-they may be my favorite part of the venue. Inside the mansion, everything is just incredible. The foyer has this incredible spiral staircase and beautifully textured walls. The rooms are decorated in such a way that picture taking is a breeze. The bridal suite has amazing light and both the bridal and the groom suite has outside balconies. I can’t leave out the staff-the ladies at Howey Mansion are just incredible. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
The icing on the cake is that you can stay on property overnight. The gated guesthouse is available for rent. We were able to rent our venue for the weekend, and I really think that it made for an incredibly relaxing wedding day (and night). I am completely honored to have been able to shoot two events there-a Victorian Inspired Styled Shoot, and an Intimate Wedding. Be sure to check them both out to learn more about this beautiful wedding venue!
Florida may be a popular place to come for a Destination Wedding, but I bet this isn’t what everyone has in mind. Even though there are plenty of Country Club Wedding Venues in Florida, none are quite as exquisite as this beautiful venue. When you pull through the gates, you are immediately transported to the Italian Countryside. This Tuscan Inspired venue greets you with rolling hills-something you don’t see often in Florida! Every inch of this venue is picturesque-it is just about impossible to take a bad picture here. I could go on forever about this venue. In fact-I already have! I’ve already wrote an entire blog post about this venue-so be sure to check it out by clicking the link to learn more about this luxury wedding venue!
Isleworth Country Club has the 3 ingredients necessary to make it a true “Jamie Reinahrt” venue. 1) It’s gorgeous 2) It’s close to home 3) Celebrities (mainly athletes) can be found there. That’s pretty much all that is necessary to make it a favorite venue of mine. Isleworth is a Luxury Golf & Country Club, so it is no surprise that the grounds are beautiful. For me, what sets this venue apart from others is the ballroom. It is the most incredible space-the lighting fixtures are insane. It looks absolutely stunning when it is decorated for a wedding. You can see more from our latest Isleworth Country Club Wedding HERE. Before I start on my next venue, there is one more thing that I gives this venue an extra bonus point in my book….the ice cream station. Man is it good! You need to get the raspberry with dark chocolate combo. You won’t regret it!
You already know I love a good Estate Wedding, so it should come as no surprise that the Historic Casa Feliz is on my Favorite Orlando Wedding Venues list. With it’s brick exterior and it’s robin egg shutters-it’s just dreamy. Each wedding I have done here has been beautifully unique and so special. Every Casa Feliz couple has a special place in my heart, so maybe that’s why I’m head over heels in love with his venue. I’m not going to get into too much detail here because just like Bella Collina, I’ve already done it. You can check out my full Casa Feliz Blog HERE.
While it’s not a mansion, it IS Four Seasons, and I’m all for a good Luxury Wedding Venue. While there are tons of beautiful hotels in the Orlando area, none of them quite match up to Four Seasons Orlando. For starters-this staircase. I could spend an entire day taking pictures on this staircase. This venue is pure elegance to me. From the reflection pond to the tree lined walkway, this venue is pure beauty. Our latest Four Seasons Wedding was featured on Every Last Detail-be sure to go check it out!
Last on the Orlando Wedding Venues list- but nowhere near least in my book is The Ritz. As I mention in my 10 Central Florida Wedding Venues blog post….It’s The Ritz. I really don’t need to say more. I will though. This venue is just beautiful. I know-I’ve said that a lot these last few paragraphs. It’s pretty large, so there is definitely no shortage of photo locations available. I do recommend that if you are going to photograph a wedding at this venue that you go check it out ahead of time so you have a game plan for your portraits on the wedding day. As I said above when talking about Four Seasons-there are not shortages of hotel venues in the area, but the one thing that stands out at this venue to me is the staff. I honestly can’t say enough about how amazing and accommodating the event staff is. To see more from this venue, click HERE.
