Celebration gardens

BIG changes came this summer to Celebration Gardens with their expansion renovation. They now GOT YOU COVERED!

orlando wedding venue celebration gardens

Note from Celebration Gardens on their expansion renovation:  Our Celebration Gardens team has been busier than ever this summer, and we are so excited to share some fun and exciting news.

Celebration Gardens has undergone an expansion renovation! Not only has the expansion added to the incredible gardens, but it offers a better flow for weddings, from the ceremony to cocktails and then into the reception. And it will also work fabulously for any other type of event you might be hosting!

Specialty Gardens

One of the additions to our Orlando outdoor event venue is the addition of several specialty gardens. As anyone who has been to Celebration Gardens will tell you, the grounds are amazing and provide beautiful backdrops for your events.

However, we are enhancing the grounds with specialty garden areas, including a Cactus Garden and an Orchid Garden.

It’s All Fun And Games

Another exciting addition to our Central Florida venue is built-in games like corn hole, bocce ball, horseshoes, and a mini putting green.

We’ve Got You Covered

Speaking of cocktail hour, another one of the additions during our summer expansion is a new covered bar area.

The biggest addition is THE NEW COVERED RECEPTION PAVILION. This pavilion will accommodate approximately 120 guests and eliminates the need for tenting for receptions.

New Food Offerings

Also, we have added new food prep equipment. Including a grill, fryer, and flat grill. So we’ll be able to offer fun foods like fresh-cut French Fries, Burgers, Ribs, and Cheesesteaks, all made to order. 

SO, DON’T MISS BEING THE FIRST TO SEE THESE RENOVATIONS.
