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

Could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding!
From the moment we stepped on the grounds we knew this is where we wanted to have our wedding, so we booked it right away after our tour. The best word to describe this venue is BEAUTIFUL.. We fell in love with the house, the trees, the lake, EVERYTHING! Our guest would not stop talking about how beautiful it was. Stacey was a pleasure to work with and kept us updated on all the new changes made to the venue.Sent on 10/01/2019
Our wedding coordinator Jeane’ was amazing as well. Together with Stacey they made sure our wedding was everything and more!
Thank you for everything!!

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!
