4 Romantic Sites to Say “I Do”

The City Beautiful is home to many romantic wedding venues, making it hard for couples to choose where they will celebrate their love in front of their family and friends. Here, we introduce you to a few and share what makes them so special.

Bok Tower Gardens
A national historic landmark, Bok Tower Gardens has several spaces for your wedding day that cater to anywhere from 50 to 200 guests. At The Tower Lawn, which is the most popular wedding location at this venue, the Great Brass Door is the backdrop of your ceremony. The stunning singing tower features tile mosaics, sculptures and custom ironwork. Following a garden ceremony you can choose the grand lobby of the Visitor Center or the Olmsted House for your ceremony location. The premier wedding package includes an outdoor ceremony in the Grotto of the Pinewood Estate, with oak trees draped above, and an outdoor reception on the lawn.

Discovery Cove
When you plan a wedding at Discovery Cove, you will be saying “I do” in a theme park, but it won’t feel like it. This intimate experience takes place before the park opens for the day. Your guests will take a leisurely walk down a nature trail, experiencing interactions with animals and tropical bird before reaching the ceremony location. After the vows have been exchanged, the bride and groom will be able to enjoy a private cabana and treat themselves and their guests to a reserved 30-minute dolphin swim, complimentary breakfast and lunch, snorkeling with tropical fish, floating on the Wind-Away River and more. This is the perfect romantic wedding for a laidback couple.

Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate
Not only does this resort offer a romantic setting for a fairytale wedding in the heart of Florida’s theme park capital but it is a place where brides can pamper themselves and their best ladies before their walk down the aisle. In the days leading up to the wedding, Mokara Spa is the perfect place to spend an afternoon letting someone else take care of all the little details as you relax and unwind for a facial, a body wrap or one of eight massage varieties. When it’s time to get ready, Mokara Spa’s salon services have you covered, from a mani/pedi with champagne and treats to a blowout and styling from the hair care professionals.

The Alfond Inn
This venue is committed to making your romantic dream Winter Park wedding a reality. Whether you prefer an intimate ceremony or a large occasion, inside or outside festivities, or a uniquely themed event, the professional events team at The Alfond Inn will customize your special day just for you. The hotel’s proximity to Winter Park allows you to quickly get away to favorite city spots to take your photos. The art collection that is integrated into The Alfond Inn’s boutique hotel experience offers a beautiful spot for photography on property, along with the conservatory and pool area.
