Tie the knot with a ceremony on the terrace, enjoy cocktail hour as the sun sets in the distance overlooking “The City Beautiful” or dance the night away under a canopy of market lights during a moonlit reception. The terrace invites each couples’ unique style, taste, and personality to take shape in our most customizable space. It also provides plenty of room for dinner, dancing, and all of your wedding celebration!

Looking for some larger-than-life wedding guests? Look no further than DinoDigs! This one-of-a-kind space boasts dramatically high ceilings and epic photo backdrops, ensuring a memorable reception or cocktail hour. Guests are sure to have a pre-historic good time taking a selfie with one of many dinosaurs, digging for fossils, or roaring alongside an animatronic dino. DinoDigs provides a unique, whimsical, and exciting atmosphere unlike anything in Orlando. 

Next, stroll into the Our Planet exhibit for a ceremony space that is out-of-this world, or a fun interactive cocktail hour. Say “I Do” in front of a suspended globe with projected images of Mars, the Moon, or even objects from galaxies far far away. Watch as guests unearth the wonders of Our Planet during cocktail hour with an array of engaging hands-on exhibits and let science set the scene!

Worried about the weather? Don’t be. Orlando Science Center wedding packages include plans for a weather back-up just a couple of feet away inside our facility. If there’s one thing we know about planning a Florida wedding, it’s that weather backups are a must!

Lord of the Rings Wedding ♥ A Fantasy in Central Florida

Fandom Weddings: Lord of the (Wedding) Rings

Grab your favorite hobbit and join the Fellowship! We wanted to cover one of our favorite themes this week. The Lord of the Rings world of JRR Tolkien adds a vast and magical personality to your special day that is incomparable! Couples can become creative whether they are highlighting the Shire or Rivendell, Florida’s easily procurable Spanish moss helps add a folk feel to the centerpieces or even the aisle to transport you and your guests to a fantasy Lord of the Rings wedding.

As many couples check fun hobbit inspired music and table décor off their must-have list, guests feel as if they have been transported to a different world with dragons, dwarves, elves, hobbits, and wizards alike. Couples love to put this dramatic and beautiful Lord of the Rings spin on their wedding day, to bring some of their own personality to it.

We love seeing Lord of the Rings weddings come to life with elements like:

  • Tolkien-inspired rings and detail shots
  • The Evening Star necklace either on the table or around our bride’s neck
  • Tables named after different lands and places across Tolkien’s world
  • Enchanting pictures on our digital screens and music playing while guests arrive
  • Play Shire-inspired music in the background, while your guests find their seats

Whenever we have a chance to see our couple’s personalities creep into their wedding details, we are always eager to help bring it to life. We want to be the Sam to your Frodo, to guide you along the way, and, if necessary, carry you the last bit. We want your day to be as enchanting as these tales are for you and your fiancé.
