The best wedding venue in the Orlando area!
Omg. Where to begin. So far, Sydonie has been incredible. Our first tour was perfect and after learning the history behind the mansion, we knew this was where we were going to have our wedding. We went to another venue, but it just didn't have the same charm as Sydonie. Jeane, the planner they want you to book, is also AMAZING. Our wedding is in April 2020 and I seriously cannot wait to get married there!Sent on 03/23/2019

A magical place for our wedding!
The first, if not the second most important decision in the wedding planning process is deciding on the venue. Ren and I knew we did not want a beach, church or hotel wedding. That narrowed down our search pretty quickly to estates!Sent on 03/18/2019
I came upon the Sydonie Mansion while researching across the IG and Pinterest worlds. From my initial contact with the homeowner, Amber, I couldn’t shake the feeling that this location held something wonderful for us and we needed to go visit.
After coordinating with the owners, we had arrived at Sydonie on a dreary Sunday in February. The skies were grey with a thunderstorm brewing, the plants had been sparse since a recent hard freeze, but we knew during that tour that this was our wedding location.
I can’t say enough about the magic that Sydonie holds, you’ll just have to visit her yourself to see.
From the elegance and authenticity of the house architecture to the magnificent greenery of the garden, we could not have asked for a more perfect venue for pictures of our ceremony and reception!
To all the staff, owners, and grounds cat, thank you for sharing the magic you hold on our wedding day. This Mansion is truly a special place that any bride and groom would be so lucky to start their next chapter in!

This venue is gorgeous and offers plenty of amenities! The staff is professional and responsive. The venue is huge too! We only had around 80 guests and but it looked like a much smaller wedding as the reception went on because there’s so much space for people to spread out and explore the beautiful venue. You don’t need to go overboard with decor here either because the space is so pretty on its own. They do enough wedding to know what works and what doesn’t, but not so many wedding that your wedding is going to look like everyone else’s in the area. The price is pretty standard. Every venue I looked at was within the same range of pricing. They offer tables and chairs in the price, there’s a bridal suite and grooms room, and you can even get your engagement photos done there too if you wish! I’m so glad we chose Sydonie for our wedding! There’s so much beauty and history there!Sent on 12/10/2018
