Beautiful venue!

This venue is a hidden gem in the middle of the downtown Orlando area. It’s pretty much already decorated, so minimal decor was needed. It’s a beautiful indoor/outdoor space, and provides a room upstairs for the bride and groom as well as the option to book additional rooms. (I recommend getting one the night before, it was so nice to wake up and be able to get ready at my own pace!)

The package we selected included tables and chairs, catering, a beer and wine bar, as well as the venue. It made it SO EASY to only have one contact for everything. But here’s the best part-

THE FOOD. IS. AMAZING. I’ve worked in catering for a very long time and never expect much from
Wedding food. I had so many people tell me that this was the best meal they had at a wedding pretty much ever. Seriously better than weddings I’ve attended at big name hotels and Disney.

They made it so easy and provided me a great backdrop for my wedding, as well as wonderful service!

Best venue there is!!

The Dr. Phillips House is such a gorgeous and unique venue! We loved that there are 6 bedrooms within the house that you can reserve for the night of your wedding and the day before if needed. We booked 1 room for the night before and then used it as the girls getting ready room for the morning. For the night of our wedding we reserved all 6 rooms and were able to have most of our wedding party stay on sight which was great!

The staff here is also amazing and really made our wedding perfect! I was nervous about it raining and we talked through multiple different rain backup plans (which thankfully we didn’t have to use). They went above and beyond and made us feel so special and took care of us the whole night. We wanted to step away for a moment during cocktail hour and they brought us a whole plate of the cocktail appetizers we had chosen along with a drink for each of us. For dinner, we chose the buffet option but they brought us each a prepared plate to our table. By the end of the night they even had two leftover boxes of food waiting in our hotel room fridge in case we got hungry later. The food was amazing and so is this venue! I cannot imagine having chosen a different option for our wedding as everything was perfect with the Dr. Phillips House!

Amazing staff and amazing venue!

Not only did our wedding go so smoothly! The venue coordinator Angie was a gem and works with you and your needs! The price is perfect, they have millenia catering who has amazing food, great taste! Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for intimate but needs to invite up to 100 guests. I wouldn’t have more than 100 only because the reception area inside is not the biggest, unless your entire reception is outside. I had the ceremony outside by the gazebo, the reception (dinner inside with 90 guests) and dance floor outside which was magical with the lighting they have set up and the atmosphere! 10/10 recommend! The staff as well on the wedding day are very attentive and very caring! Thank you so much for letting us be there on our special day to celebrate our marriage!
