We love a good barn wedding and there are so many in Central Florida to choose from! Today we’re talking about 5 of our favorites.
One thing we love about these venues is that they’re all air conditioned and/or heated - which is super essential for that crazy Florida weather we all know and love so much. Here we will break down a few of the essentials to help you choose your favorite wedding spot! Let us know in the comments which one is your favorite!

The Black Barn is Orlando’s newest, gorgeous barn venue. Located in East Orlando (yes, in Orlando proper!), this stunning black barn offers a multitude of already aesthetically pleasing decorated spaces. They have a covered outdoor ceremony location with a double sliding barn door entrance and large fans to keep your guests cool. Your guests will be comfortable in their stunning clear and black metal folding chairs. They are currently working on an almost all glass secondary ceremony space so you’ll have two spaces to choose from for your ceremony needs. There is an outdoor cocktail garden area between the original ceremony space and the barn so guests can easily flow from one space to another. All of these outdoor spaces are gorgeous but the crowning jewel is the indoor, air conditioned barn reception area. The space holds up to 150 people comfortably and comes with farm tables and gorgeous black metal chairs. You can set the space up for family style or individual tables. The DJ booth is conveniently located upstairs overlooking the space, leaving more room for dancing in the middle. With an included surround sound speaker system, your DJ will just have to plug and play. There is a bar already set up and right next to it is a convenient phone charging station - they literally thought of everything. If you visit this amazing venue be sure to check out the bathrooms - they’re gorgeous! This venue also comes with catering packages, bartending packages, and décor options. They’ve got tons of gorgeous décor and faux floral arrangements to choose from. Into yoga and want to host a pre-wedding activity for a bachelorette or welcome party?
