7 places to compare, to help you figure out where to elope in Florida. These are the best micro wedding venues 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!
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!
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).
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.)
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!
I think this goes without saying, but at most beaches, you only need a simple permit to show up, say your vows and elope!
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!
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!
