Being wedding photographers for the past 6 years, we have worked at many of the Orlando wedding venues! Today, we are sharing our top 5 favorite venues we’ve photographed and why we think they could be perfect for you!
Tucked away in the small town of St. Cloud, Hastings Ranch is a GORGEOUS barn venue. This venue offers a peaceful environment with open ranch fields and beautiful oak trees. Hastings Ranch can host up to 150 guests in their converted dairy barn (and it’s air-conditioned, a must have for Florida!!!). They have multiple ceremony location options and a covered area area for cocktail hour or dancing. Hastings Ranch caters to all the modern wedding trends while adding that southern charm.
The thing we love most about Hastings Ranch is their amazing staff. Everyone is so friendly, welcoming, and willing to help in any way they can. They treat everyone like family, which is really important for the wedding day! We also love the never ending options for your (and our!) photography dreams.
Ever After Farms is another one of our favorite barn venues. They actually have 4 different venues across the state: The Peach Farm (Mims, FL), The Blueberry Farm (Mims, FL), The Ranch Barn (Indiantown, FL), and the Vineyard Barn (Pomona Park, FL). We’ve had an opportunity to photograph at the Peach Farm, but ALL of them are STUNNING.
The Ever After Peach Farm is perfect for an intimate wedding day. It is off the beaten path near Titusville and surrounded by peach trees. They have a gorgeous ceremony location with a white wooden arch and wishing well. The air-conditioned barn holds up to 100 guests for the reception and has beautiful chandeliers and market lighting. The Ever After Peach Farm is also an all-inclusive venue, providing tables, chairs, decor, and more for your day. One of our favorite parts of this venue was the unique photography locations. The farm has a pond with a white boat that couples can get in! The peach trees and barn itself are also gorgeous backdrops, as well as the 1956 Ford F-250 Truck. The Ever After Peach Farm will give you the rustic feel you are looking for!
The Dr. Phillips House is one of our favorite hidden gems in the heart of Downtown Orlando. This venue is a historic landmark with vintage and boutique homes for your day. The Dr. Phillips House (formerly The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne) gives you a beautiful garden vibe. With brick aisles, a gazebo or porch for your ceremony, and reception areas for up to 250 people, it is the perfect place to create unforgettable memories.
The Dr. Phillips House and the WHOLE courtyard gives an insane amount of options for your wedding day photos. The fountains, flowers, and greenery offer a spark of fairytale to your day. But the added bonus (shown to us by the amazing staff and coordinators there), is right outside their gate. You can gain private access to Lake Lucerne and have the Orlando skyline in your photos! We love the classic vibe of the Dr. Phillips House.
Bridle Oaks Barn QUICKLY became one of our top favorite Orlando wedding venues this past year. We love the rustic barn look here in Florida!! But, Bridle Oaks Barn brought a different element to what we love about the barns. Nestled in DeLand, this venue is five acres of DREAMY. The bridal suite is tucked in a gorgeous garden surrounded by the best animals (dwarf goats are the CUTEST). It gives privacy to the ladies while also providing an amazing first look location. The venue has a beautiful ceremony space with a rustic altar, stone aisle, doors for the couple to walk through, and a chandelier. The reception barn holds up to 150 guests and they include all of the tables and chairs (we love a good bonus!).
We love so many things about Bridle Oaks Barn, but we have to praise the amazing staff here. Everyone was so welcoming and great with communication. The staff is so on top of their game, and the owner is extremely helpful as well. They also provide a rental room with vintage decor and furniture for your day! There are SO many gorgeous photo locations, but my favorite has to be the twinkling light wall (definitely made up that name, but it’s AMAZING). Bridle Oaks Barn knocks it out of the park when it comes to decor and making your day perfect!
The Highland Manor is easily one of our favorite classic style Orlando wedding venues! Nestled on secluded grounds in Apopka, The Highland Manor is surrounded by ancient oak trees. This historic landmark gives off a classic southern wedding vibe and can hold up to 250 guests! With both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, this venue is a perfect fit for everyone. The oaks and the wraparound porch on the venue make for gorgeous photographs.
One of our favorite parts of this venue is the amazing bridal suite available for your wedding day. There are multiple rooms and so much natural light, while accentuating authentic southern charm. The grounds also offer a gorgeous oak tree as a backdrop for your photographs and a beautiful barn for more intimate and traditional ceremonies. We love the never ending options at The Highland Manor!
