Ceremony & Reception Locations

Welcome to the Perfect Setting for Your Wedding

We believe in what the Italians call amore. So we offer some of the most romantic wedding locations in all of Orlando. From the sun-soaked Citrus Piazza to the drama of a 27-foot-high ceiling in our Tuscan Ballroom, the choices are remarkable. Go for baroque or be laid-back in linen; this is where your personal style sets the mood.

However you picture your destination wedding in Orlando, we’re happy to design a celebration to make your dream come true. If a wedding under the stars is always how you envisioned your ceremony, our Villa Piazza is exactly what you’re looking for. Our hotel’s Venetian Ballroom with its glittering Venetian glass chandeliers is ideal for hosting an elegant sit-down dinner for 500—and for dancing the night away. Our Wedding Specialists will ensure that every detail of the décor is done exactly to your liking.

Ceremony Locations

Villa Piazza

The lush lawn of the tranquil Villa Piazza is the ideal location for a sun-kissed outdoor ceremony. The rectangular-shaped space is intimate enough for small ceremonies, yet large enough to accommodate virtually any sized function. The beautiful hotel exterior serves as a backdrop for this private area that also features a simply designed gazebo where you can host your wedding altar.

Citrus Piazza

This secluded courtyard is capped with a rustic, intricately designed gazebo and a graceful fountain. Located adjacent to the Venetian Ballroom, this space creates an easy flow from ceremony to cocktails and then to your reception. You may complement the space with additional décor, but no enhancements are necessary to enjoy the beauty of this setting.

Indoor Reception Locations

Venetian Ballroom

Located adjacent to the Citrus Piazza, the Venetian Ballroom is the hotel’s premier wedding and reception space and one of Orlando’s most in-demand venues. Soft hues line the ballroom space, which can be dressed to your preferences. Five bay windows overlook lush green foliage, and add natural light to your event. Other features include elaborate 20-foot tray ceilings with beautiful Venetian glass chandeliers, satin wall coverings and Venetian wall sconces. This exquisite space can accommodate up to 400 but is flexible enough for groups of all sizes.

Ligurian Ballroom

The Ligurian Ballroom is named for the body of water that feeds the Portofino Harbor in Italy. Here in this intimate setting you can host an event for groups of up to 150 in style. The ballroom features a lively natural color palette, and is elegantly appointed with distinct crown molding, chair rails, tray ceilings and private foyer space. The Ligurian Ballroom is conveniently located adjacent to the Citrus Piazza.

Tuscan Ballroom

Our largest ballroom, the grand Tuscan Ballroom, is spacious and sophisticated—an ideal location for hosting large-scale ceremonies and receptions in excess of 1,000 guests. The ballroom can be sectioned off to host smaller affairs from 100 to 250 guests. The décor features beautiful draperies, grapevine-design wall coverings, Tiffany-style chandeliers, and grand windows overlooking a small outdoor patio. The Tuscan Ballroom is conveniently adjacent to the Citrus Piazza.
