Based in Orange County, Winter Park is one of Florida’s best kept secrets (despite its ever-growing popularity). Winter Park, as the name suggests, was once considered a winter resort for its abundance of parks and winter activities.
Nowadays, Winter Park is to be enjoyed by everyone all year round as it is known for a variety of arts and cultural events.
With over 70 parks, Winter Park offers some of Florida’s most beautiful inner city sights for nature lovers. Winter Park has it all – from summer and winter outdoor venues to unique and hidden indoor venues – making it one of the best places for virtually every wedding to be held.
If you’re looking for the perfect place to get married and you don’t know where to start, here are the 15 best winter park wedding venues!
Not all outdoor weddings have to cater for hundreds of people. Celebration Gardens is the ideal intimate outdoor venue for couples who want to celebrate their love amongst lush gardens filled with picturesque flowers, pure white gazebos for the reception, and stellar waiting staff.
Even if you want to invite more than 50-100 guests, this venue can comfortably cater up to 200 guests for a less intimate wedding!
Winter Park Wedding Chapel is the ideal venue for those who want the backgrounds of their wedding pictures to show off the beauty of Winter Park.
This chapel is steeped in history and is run by a couple who have been in the wedding venue business for almost 20 years, making them the experts when it comes to making your big day perfect.
The chapel itself is like a blank canvas that can be decorated to your heart’s content, so you don’t have to worry about sticking to a particular theme alongside the venue.
Chapel and Hudson’s Cellar is the ideal venue for couples who want a historical and intimate wedding ceremony. The chapel interior has been recently renovated with white paint amongst the traditional wooden pews, which can be easily decorated to suit your theme, and can accommodate up to 48 guests.
The outside courtyard is ideal for the reception, which can cater between 80-125 people. Great for those who want a simple yet elegant wedding!
The historic Capen House isn’t a venue to be forgotten about. Everything screams perfection with this venue – from the lakefront lawn to over 3 acres of gardens and land.
Couples can opt for an intimate indoor wedding or a larger outdoor wedding (with the reception also inside or outside the house), but nothing quite matches reading your vows in front of the breathtaking Lake Osceola.
Not everyone can afford a wedding in Italy, so why not bring Italy straight to Florida and get married at Winter Club Venue’s Villa Tuscany?
Villa Tuscany offers a stunning Tuscan-style courtyard, featuring a rustic color scheme and gorgeous furniture. Complete with gelato bars, espresso bars, and an array of customizable rooms, you can teleport yourself and your guests right into the heart of Italy.
Rollins College is primarily an educational campus, but its stunning architecture and surrounding gardens makes it a gorgeous place to get married.
If you’re into traditional chapels, this venue is ideal for your wedding, as it features tall and detailed ceilings, a grand stained glass window, pillars, a wooden altar, and a traditional organ.
While this is synonymous with religious ceremonies, the newly renovated chapel is versatile and can be decorated to suit your chosen theme.
Casa Feliz is a stunning authentic Spanish farmhouse that teleports you out of Florida right into the heart of Spain. You’ve got the traditional exposed bricks, the Spanish tiled roof, a classic bell tower, and stunning window shutters that are worthy of getting excited about.
The interiors have been refurbished to mimic 19th-century Spanish architecture, making it one of the most aesthetically pleasing and unique wedding spots in Winter Park.

It might seem odd to have a wedding at a racquet club, but this place is so huge that it won’t feel like you’re amidst sports.
