Where To Elope In Florida: Micro Florida Wedding Venues


7 places to compare, to help you figure out where to elope in Florida. These are the best micro wedding venues in Florida!

Need help deciding where to elope in Florida?

Elopements are simple, and yet, there is one question that eats up a lot of couples who are tempted to just head to the courthouse instead of choosing a location. But I can promise you that the research comes with a reward. And the best part is that I’ve done the research so you can have a rewarding elopement, without the research!

P.S. If you realize that you have to make three decisions — where to elope in Florida, who to pick as your elopement photographer and who to invite…well, invite me as your elopement photographer and that’ll leave only one decision left!

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!

  • Room for 200-350 guests
  • Lush 11 acres of property
  • Bridal suite and groom’s den for getting ready
  • Wooden alfresco gazebo with bistro lights
  • Arches and arbors for simple ceremonies
  • On-site venue coordinator
  • Plenty of parking

2. The Garden Villa

In Winter Park, Florida and intended just for ceremonies and elopement-style weddings, this location is led by a catering company. That means you can expect delicious food and a scrumptious setting.

With over 100 reviews and an average of 4.6 stars, you could say this place has been vetted for you by a variety of couples and event hosts. They have room for outdoor and indoor micro weddings. However, the indoor space allows only for the most intimate of celebrations.

Their on-site coordinators won’t let you lose sight of what you’re after, either! Their most intimate package starts at just $995 (last updated Dec. 2022).

  • Up to 125 guests
  • Incredible gardens
  • Gorgeous banquet hall
  • Delicious catering options
  • Professional event coordinators

3. Harry Leu Gardens

A city location coined as a “50-acre botanical oasis,” Leu Garden is a hidden gem with small weddings for up to 25 guests costing a mere $375. (See more rates.) 

  • 50 acres of botanical photo ops and romantic hideaways
  • Multiple ceremony locations like the gazebo
  • Rose room (indoor location) for rainy day ceremonies

4. Kraft Azalea Gardens 

The setting for a few elopements I’ve already photographed, Kraft Azalea Gardens is only 5 acres, but it has the most gorgeous trees all around. There’s also a perfect ceremony setting with a charming exedra. Ideal for short and sweet Florida elopements!

  • Easy, minimal location with 5 acres of beautiful oversized trees
  • Public park (not as private, but easy to reserve for elopements)
  • White column monument for ceremonies

5. The Beach

I think this goes without saying, but at most beaches, you only need a simple permit to show up, say your vows and elope!

  • Simple permit usually required
  • Timeless ocean views
  • Easy access
  • Can add beach-style celebrations

6. 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!

7. Victoria 1883

Here at this riverside Florida wedding venue, you’ll find yourself just about 60 miles from downtown Orlando with an entire garden at your fingertips. They even have a speakeasy and also a dock that is set aside for micro weddings of just 6 people! It doesn’t get much cooler than that!

  • Hosts up to 150 guests
  • Historic and iconic home
  • Bed and breakfast
  • 1.5 acres of gardens and patios
