Outside the Ballroom: The Beacham & The Social





If you're looking for an original venue to hold your event at, or just a unique atmosphere to do a photoshoot, I encourage you to explore your interests and personality, and find something that caters to that!   For the music lover, a concert venue like The Beacham provides exactly this kind of edge. There are several ways concert venues can express personality; walls covered in posters and concert fliers provide a great background for a couple that either plays or loves music.





The gorgeous building, built in 1922, features brick walls and 40 foot ceilings that contribute to a rustic feel.  The beautiful sun-painted wall chandeliers make for perfect lighting and photo opportunities.










Inside the Beacham is a stairway to another venue, The Social, giving you that "underground music scene" vibe.  The Beacham is multilevel, offering green rooms and breakout areas, making it easy to provide cocktail rooms, or characterize the spacious first level floor your own way.

We've found a slice of Europe here in Paisley, Florida. Wild Acres Villa is a secluded old world villa that frequents outdoor weddings on their private lake or gardens with indoor amenities as well. Nestled on 160 acres of luscious land, this is the perfect spot for couples who want to bring European flair to their wedding, or an event that wants a venue with a historic feel. The stained glass, Tuscan Villa Interior, antiques, and dramatic choices of lighting configurations can set the tone for an eclectic event.

Built on a lake, this Villa is the brainchild of a passionate and hard working man who was inspired by the beauty of Europe and the simplicity of an A-frame shop with eclectic antiques.



At Wild Acres weddings are their specialties. Whether you're looking for an indoor Mediterranean or Medieval vibe or an outdoors secret garden or lakeside ambiance, this venue can make it happen. The venue can hold either a small party of 100 or up to 1000 people at a time.

Outside the Ballroom: Winter Park Farmer's Market



The Winter Park Farmer's Market is truly Winter Parks hidden gem for Wedding venues. Doubling as a farmer's market (most Saturday mornings) to snag exceptional cheese by day and a venue for events by nightfall, it's highly under the radar.

With exposed ceilings, brick walls, and romantic string lighting the venue is enchanting, sultry, and natural. And that's just the inside! Outdoors is rich with greenery, more brick walls, barn doors and beautiful for the ceremony, receptions, or just photographs.

Every review written about the Winter Park Farmer's Market boasts about how friendly the staff was and how they couldn't be happier with their unique choice!





 One of the best features about the Farmer's Market is it's a blank canvas. While it has beautiful architecture and a contemporary feel, it can be transformed to whatever your creative heart desires. Pilster Photography has seen the Market molded into a scene out of an Edgar Allen Poe novel. A complete horror story wedding complimented by the historic design of the venue.






Tents outdoors for the reception or the ceremony on the porch is also an option, with gorgeous forestry, it's the perfect backdrop for a wedding.




The reception hall reminds me of the old warehouse from the end of the classic movie Footloose. The kids from the movie transformed the warehouse and made it their own with just a few simple touches. What made the warehouse perfect as a dance hall was that it was incredibly spacious. The same goes for the reception hall at the Farmer's Market, the bride can have her choice of set up style, and the guests can get down with their bad selves on the roomy dance floor!









The Farmer's Market is a great choice for couples who have a caterer in mind, there are no restrictions on catering! There is a prep kitchen which includes commercial refrigeration and ice machines.


The Farmer's Market was once an old train depot, which makes it an amazing canvas for vintage photographs. It still sits next to active train tracks. You may have to pause during your ceremony as the train goes by or maybe you will time it for the first kiss!

Outside the Ballroom: Harmony Gardens



Harmony Gardens encompasses all the reasons why an outdoor wedding can be the most the elegant, storybook-like event that will be incredibly fun and also remain timeless in your photo album. Imagine your wedding set with a canopy of oak trees surrounded by tropical plants blooming all around you while you walk down the aisle.







The natural shade created by the oak tree canopies will serve as a relief from sunlight for your guests. There are also rose gardens, a pond, and a fountain for memories to be captured. Your guests will want to come back to take their own pictures! Once the sun goes down, the majesty of Harmony Gardens really shines. Trees and pathways are lighted to turn the setting into a beautiful essence of romance. Complete with lighted torches, the fun is sure to never stop as long as the DJ keeps that music coming.





Harmony Gardens is more than prepared to make the process of getting ready as seamless as possible as well. They provide both a bride’s and groom’s room to keep that no-looksie superstition at bay. The venue is equipped for 200 of your closest friends and family for both the ceremony and the reception.





In the event of rain or cold, Harmony Gardens also offers tents and pavilions in the gardens to ward away the raindrops. They also have an event planner on staff to help you make the perfect adjustments. Catering is available through Harmony Gardens itself or you can bring in any catering of your choice.





A wedding at Harmony Gardens will be the natural, picturesque event of your dreams. With pristine canopies and the most beautiful tropical plants Florida has to offer, your wedding will be the talk of friends and family for years to come. You can always come back to visit the gardens and relive the moment any time you’d like!
