Central Florida Wedding venue - The Wellvue
Unquestionably, working with Weddings by aVenue means we are going to be treated to the ultimate in attention to detail and care. From the soft pink linens and place settings. To the perfectly pink florals and cake accents. The room was awash with a soft color palette that was both welcoming and comfortable.
In February of 2022 we hosted our monthly event at The Wellvue. This Central Florida wedding venue is the private event space at the Center for Health & Wellbeing. Further, it is an elegant and unique venue. Including a magnificent grand lawn and gardens, free onsite parking, and over 25,000 square feet of event space.
However, the heart of The Wellvue is the exquisitely designed Commons with high ceilings banked in windows. As a result this large gathering space is rich with natural light.
