Where to Get Married in Orlando — A Hipster’s Guide, Part #1

So, you’re gonna tie the knot! ….and Orlando is the chosen location. Where’s a great place to have the wedding and wedding reception?

A Disney wedding is a psychotic expense, with an oh-so-plastic vibe. Here are some other options for where to get married in Orlando:

Pricey:

#1 – Leu Gardens

An expensive & beautiful Southern classic for weddings in Orlando. Sure, it’s pricy, and they’ll make you pay for all catering here. But if you’ve got the money and want a stunning Florida venue, enjoy this place. It’s a huge park, so guests can wander about. The building is lovely and classic, so you’ve got backup space if it rains. It gets blazing hot in summer though, so stick with late Autumn to Spring for a timeframe here.

#2 – Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens

Getting married in a beautiful sculpture garden on a lake is pretty classy. If you’re an art lover who enjoys a garden party, free of any commercialism vibe—this place is a gem.

#3 – Mead Gardens

Just a classic choice. So Florida! Beautiful timeless gardens, white cast iron trellis, beautiful trees—just avoid it May to September, as it’s too stinking hot.

#4 – Casa Feliz

This stunning Spanish farmhouse is totally charming. If you like oak trees, a fountain, and “old world Spain” vibes—this might be for you. Close to Park Avenue in Winter Park, which is nice for additional photo shoots before/after the big event.
