A prime location for group photos or intimate shots is our Terrace. The west-facing Terrace provides one of the best wedding portrait backdrops in Orlando, featuring the beautiful Downtown Orlando skyline and stunning sunsets, all tied together with glowing market lights.

One of the most intimate and unique locations at OSC is our Observatory. Located on the sixth floor, the Observatory provides a birds-eye view of Downtown Orlando, ideal for sunset viewing. Inside the Observatory, red lighting provides a fun element to photos taken on the spiral staircase, or head up to our Observatory deck and pose next to Florida’s largest publicly accessible refractor telescope.

If you’re an animal lover, reach out to us about having live animals come mingle for some photos! OSC’s NatureWorks would be more than happy to bring a skunk or a baby gator to meet your guests and pose for some fun photos!

If live animals aren’t your thing, there is always a dino ready for their close-up in DinoDigs, and they are quite photogenic. Our t-rex, Stan, will even hold a custom-made sign in his mouth to commemorate your wedding or event and act as a photo op for you and your guests!

One of our all-time favorite spots to capture photos is the Sky Bridge, a glass enclosed bridge surrounded by greenery. Day or night, the glimmer of the dangling, handmade, rainbow crystal hearts will make for dazzling pictures.

Use the Sky Bridge for some intimate shots of you and your partner, or use it as a send-off location at the end of the evening to capture some fun photos of your guests wishing you well and sending you on your way as newlyweds!
