Our team here at Celebration Gardens recently had the pleasure of hosting Daniela and Jordan’s outdoor wedding at our botanical garden wedding venue. Their beautiful day featured a neutral color palette, romantic florals, and dancing beneath the stars. Together with 45 of their closest loved ones, these newlyweds truly maximized the use of every event site that we offer, from their ceremony at our Wedding Gazebo to cocktail hour amongst our gardens to the reception under our Grand Pavilion. Throughout the evening, they celebrated the magic of their love story with good food and good company, all while enjoying the fresh air and golden sunshine.
Daniela and Jordan’s elegant nuptials serve as a gorgeous example of how your own wedding design can be timeless, no matter what season or year you’re getting married in. As we take you through their neutral, outdoor wedding, we invite you to step into their shoes. Imagine you and your soon-to-be spouse exchanging vows on our gazebo lawn and strolling through our botanical gardens, taking newlywed portraits. Picture yourself savoring the refreshing breeze that sweeps through the Grand Pavilion while you enjoy a delicious dinner with all your family and friends. Envision having your first dance underneath the built-in market lighting and soaking up every moment of your dream day.
With Daniela and Jordan’s neutral wedding, you’ll see the best of our outdoor wedding venue and how you can use its natural beauty to inspire your own perfect day. Let’s dive in!
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in Orlando:
Amongst our lovely botanical gardens, our outdoor wedding venue has the ideal wedding ceremony site: the Wedding Gazebo! Featuring a charming white gazebo, open lawn, paved aisle, and surrounding lush gardens, this space is incredibly picturesque for your wedding ceremony. The gazebo allows for design flexibility to fit your specific wedding colors and overall vibe. You can choose to enhance it with fabric draping or floral sprays, or simply leave it as is. There’s also ample room on the gazebo to have a unity ceremony setup, if desired.
Daniela and Jordan chose to decorate the gazebo with ivory fabric draping and corresponding floral sprays at each end. Their floral arrangements had pops of burnt orange to add depth and dimension. They complemented the gazebo design with fluffy pampas grass aisle markers, tied to their white resin ceremony chairs.
When the processional began, Jordan escorted both his parents down the brick aisle and took his place at the altar to await Daniela’s entrance. He and the groomsmen looked sharp in their navy blue suits and coral ties. When Daniela walked down the aisle, everyone marveled at her stunning wedding gown with its floral details on the bodice and the light, flowing train.
There couldn’t have been a more beautiful Orlando day for this outdoor wedding! The sun beamed down on the proceedings and the sky was a perfect blue. The atmosphere was made even better though by the joy that radiated throughout the space, especially when Daniela and Jordan were proclaimed husband and wife!
Outdoor Wedding Portraits:
There are countless picture-perfect spots here at Celebration Gardens for your wedding portraits! Whether you choose the floral trellis at the entrance to the gazebo lawn, the Intimate Pavilion with its canopy of greenery, the butterfly garden, or anywhere in our beautifully maintained botanical gardens, you are bound to get awe-inspiring shots. We take pride in keeping our property pristine with the help of our landscaper, Botanical Harmony, so you can revel in the natural beauty.
After their outdoor wedding ceremony, Daniela and Jordan did just that by capturing newlywed portraits throughout our venue. While their guests sipped on beverages and mixed and mingled by our built-in bar, the new Mr. and Mrs. got to spend some one-on-one time together as they took photos as a married couple for the first time.
Just check out how happy they were!
Wedding Reception at Celebration Gardens:
When the reception started, we invited everyone to take a seat in our Grand Pavilion. This covered pavilion can comfortably seat up to 175, but can also beautifully fit a smaller party. With its open air siding and market lights, it serves as an idyllic reception spot!
For their neutral wedding reception, we set the guest dining tables with white linens and khaki napkins. Daniela and Jordan chose to set bud vases with ivory blooms and pampas grass stems as the table centerpieces. The table décor and view of the gardens created a wonderful ambiance and place for everyone to enjoy a meal together.
Our sister catering company, John Michael Events, served a delightful menu that evening that consisted of:
- Caesar John Michael
- Tuscan Chicken
- White Truffle Bacon Mac and Cheese
- Yellow Rice Pilaf
- Seasonal Vegetable Sauté
- Assorted Rolls with Butter Cups
The John Michael Events team always knocks it out of the park, truly treating guests as if they were their own family members. Just like our Celebration Gardens team, they strive for excellence in every way, from the quality of the food to the top-notch guest service they provide.
After dinner, the newlyweds’ friends and family delivered toasts before the cake cutting. Daniela and Jordan treated everyone to delicious wedding cake flavors of vanilla raspberry and chocolate.
Then, the dance floor opened! The DJ from Power Entertainment kept the party going all night long, even taking the celebration out onto the courtyard by our Intimate Pavilion, where everyone danced until well past the sunset.
Before the festivities drew to a close, Daniela changed into a fabulous second reception dress that had stylish puff sleeves. It was simply iconic! At the end of this outdoor wedding, Daniela and Jordan’s guests lit sparklers for their grand exit. This sweet couple twirled and dipped their way through the sparkler-lit walkway with broad smiles on their faces, having had the wedding day of their dreams.
