Azalea Lodge

The Azalea Lodge at Mead Botanical Garden (previously known as The Clubhouse) is the perfect indoor place for any type of special event — wedding receptions, business meetings, dances, workshops, family reunions, school functions and more! This beautiful 2,400 square foot reception hall has a capacity of 175. It includes a foyer, main hall, meeting space and kitchen. An outdoor a terrace overlooks  Alice’s Pond. Tables and chairs are included in rental fee. The Azalea Lodge is located next to the Little Amphitheater, a popular location for outdoor weddings. 

Historic Little Amphitheater

The Little Amphitheater is one of Winter Park’s premier locations for outdoor ceremonies. With its white wrought iron trellis, azaleas and soaring oaks, this venue is rich with Southern charm. The raised stage and tiered bench seating is perfect for an intimate wedding party and also comfortably seats up to 225 guests.  Two hour rental, just $300.

The Grove

The Grove area features a raised pavilion with soaring overhead sails, gently sloping lawn, upper terrace and rustic Pole Barn. At 50’x60′, The Grove pavilion is ideal for both wedding ceremonies and seated receptions. Whether you host an elegant garden party, rustic chic affair, or casual picnic, The Grove is the perfect locale for your themed reception. The Grove is located just steps away from the Butterfly Garden, historic Little Amphitheater and boardwalk, making it convenient for your guests to have a true back to nature experience. Rental fees vary based on set-up requirements and size of party.
