For nearly twenty years from approximately 1990 to 2010 the property we lovingly call Celebration Gardens was known as English Gardens. However, this outdoor wedding and event venue looked nothing like it does now.
Unfortunately for the Orlando and Winter Park wedding communities this once quaint wedding venue sat empty for nearly four years and had become overgrown and fallen into disrepair.
From Overgrown to Fabulous
Here are some image of the former English Gardens property as our Celebration Gardens team found it in February of 2014 after four years of neglect.
The renovations to fully renovate the property took our Celebration Gardens team a year and a half.
This included fully gutting the both indoor spaces, a complete landscaping overhaul, new pavers and new garden structures.
Our team dedicated a lot of time, energy and love to modernize the facilities while enhancing the original charm of the garden and cottages.
A New Day!
On April 29, 2015 our Celebration Gardens team did a soft opening event for a hundred or so wedding and events colleagues and local officials.
Our preferred partner John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering created a delicious menu that included Chef Carved Flank Steak and Tortellini Alfredo along with other incredible creations.
The weather broke just in time that evening to give us the perfect evening to showcase our newly renovated gardens.
And the rest, as they say, is history!
The Work Is Never Done
Since that time, over five years ago, we have hosted hundreds of Orlando weddings, not to mention the hundreds of social and corporate events. From baby showers to unicorn birthday parties and costumed character parties Celebration Gardens has hosted it all.
But we know our work is never done – we get spectacular reviews on our breathtaking gardens, the incredible ready rooms for our couples and our indoor spaces.
All of that takes work, but the responses we receive from all of our couples makes it worth it.
We invite you to contact our Celebration Gardens team at 407-960-2853 to discuss you upcoming event and to become part of our incredible history!
