Uncover the hidden gems to help you create the perfect intimate celebration.

1. Bramble Tree Estate

This is one of my personal favorites (but really, all of these venues are)! I photographed a reality TV wedding for 90 Day Fiancé’s couple, Patrick and Thais — here at Bramble Tree and my goodness, this venue is a stunner. With a beautiful garden and a swing you can sit on under the lush canopy of the tree it’s hung from (bridal portraits anyone?), it’s breathtaking. The outdoor pergola for intimate wedding ceremonies is one of my faves. See another Bramble Tree Estate wedding here! And the best part? The partner with me on a micro wedding Florida package.

For the Disney Lovers

9. Celebration Golf Club

This venue was originally created for Disney (which says a number of things about the charm and detail). I first went there in 1996 when the houses were first being built — and yes, I was quite a bit younger. But all that aside, it’s super close to Disney World and has in-house catering with a full-service bar if you’re of the cocktail-loving crowd like I am!
