Outside the Ballroom: The Ballroom at Church Street

The Ballroom at Church Street is truly a magnificent venue! It’s a beautiful southern mansion style building with tons of character. If you are looking for a ballroom that actually gets away from the modern definition and back to the classical definition, then this is a venue I would definitely recommend. It's the design and architecture of this location that make it so unique. Being in downtown Orlando you wouldn't expect to see a white mansion surrounded by high rise banks, corporate offices and lofts.

The stained glass atrium and windows allow the sunlight to pour in during the day and showcase the twinkling stars at night. How romantic! They have two, yes two, grand staircases, and feature amazing chandeliers throughout the ballroom and grand entrance way.

The Presidential Ballroom accommodates up to 1000 guests and can be sectioned off into 3 “parlours” if you decide to have both your ceremony and reception here. Parlours A, B, and C seat 270, 450, and 360 guests respectively. Overall the feel of this venue is very elegant and classic, from the chandeliers to the ornate ceiling tiles and the stained glass windows. It's fit for a princess who likes things to sparkle and for the modern bride who likes elegance tied in with modern design.

I can tell you from personal experience that the Ballroom at Church Street definitely has an intimate feel given its grandeur. They are actually owned by Puff n’ Stuff, who is a fabulous catering company and is the ballroom's exclusive caterer.
