The venue is absolutely beautiful. There is multiple ceremony and cocktail hour options to make your event unique. And the reception space is extremely versatile to fit any style. The venue alone is so worth the cost, but I'd like to stress the event team you get when you book with the history center. The staff is so amazing, helpful, experienced, and dedicated... they make the value of booking with this venue priceless!

We held our wedding at the Orange County Regional History Center and were so happy with our site selection. We originally found this venue because we were searching for locations that would allow us to bring our own alcohol. I was so happy we discovered the History Center as an option. I wanted a venue that was unique, that didn’t require a tremendous amount of decoration, and that had a beautiful indoor ceremony space. It was also the perfect location for us because our wedding was multi-phased. We had two opening receptions (hosted separately by bride & groom), followed by the ceremony, followed by private bride & groom time, followed by the reception, and all five “events” were held in five different perfect spaces within the building. We ended up using four different floors, not including the ground floor atrium where guests entered and departed. They really enjoyed going from spot to spot and all the different environments. The 1920s court room was gorgeous for the ceremony, and the next-door Jury Room was the perfect “gentleman’s room” for the groom’s reception. We worked with Taylor all the way through the process, and she was incredibly professional, kind, responsive and knowledgeable. She also had one of her event people, Dawn, who was there for our rehearsal and our entire wedding day, from set-up to clean-up, who was also sharp and friendly. We had 134 guests at our wedding, which I think was just the right size for the space.

Event: Graduation party on 12.12.14

I held my upscale, over the top graduation party at OCRHC. When I met with Taylor to discuss my vision for the night, she immediately understood what it was I was going after. Taylor is sweet, prompt, and very professional. Often times I would be able to get emails responded to within a few hours. The space used was the lobby for cocktail hour and the traveling exhibit room for the party. Ashley H. handled the day of logistics for my event.

I would use OCRHC again for another event in a heartbeat. The staff was so wonderful and they were fully engaged with me regarding making sure the details was just right.

Taylor, Dawn and Nicole at the History Center provided the absolute best experience up-to and including our wedding. They were able to help us make decisions about their venue that not only were wonderful but really enabled us to put our own touch into our event.

They also worked with all of our vendors to ensure they knew when they were supposed to arrive and where to set up. We didn't need to coordinate any of that! (What a relief!!)

Our guests loved the uniqueness the venue provided by having the ceremony in Courtroom B to the cocktail hour in the lobby to the Exhibit hall decorated for our reception. We heard only the best compliments from our guests and were so pleased they enjoyed themselves.

Tiffany and I could not recommend any place better to get married in Orlando, FL!

Words cannot express how grateful Justin and me were for Taylor and Dawn at the OCRHC! Taylor and Dawn were an absolute dream to work with and made my planning process so incredibly easy. From the very beginning, Taylor was so prompt and informative with her replies. It didn't matter how many times I emailed her with my random questions, she was so patient with me. I used the courtroom for my ceremony space and it was absolutely everything I envisioned. The courtroom itself is so beautiful on its own, so it didn't require many decorations. Since the courtroom is preserved and doesn't allow real candles, the venue provided battery operated candles for us! We used the exhibit hall as our reception space. When we brought in all decorations, Taylor was fabulous in setting everything up - it was absolutely perfect for the day of our wedding. And Dawn so wonderful as my coordinator and was with me every step of the way on wedding day. Our guests expressed how unique the venue was and how much fun it was exploring the exhibits was during cocktail hour.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue to anyone who is considering the OCRHC!

It was a pleasure working with Taylor and her staff. Everything ran smoothly and according to plan. Considering how much venues charge in the Orlando area, this venue was very reasonable. The price included special lighting, tables, chairs, and a day of the wedding coordinator. The ceremony was in the courtroom, cocktail was in a newly renovated room, and the reception in the traveling exhibit room. I highly recommend this venue!

The Orange County Regional History Center was the venue for our daughter's ceremony and reception. Taylor Fortney Bianco expertly assisted us through the wedding planning process. She was always very quick to respond to any questions or requests we had. At one point we were concerned that we had not secured a "day-of" coordinator. That proved to be completely unnecessary. Another OCHS employee, Dawn Kelly, expertly filled that role as part of the History Center's service. The only detail that concerned us is that we were under the impression that the wedding gifts would be secured in a locked office during the reception, which did not turn out to be the case. Other than that, everything was wonderful. We highly recommend the Orange County Regional History Center for weddings and receptions!

Taylor was fantastic throughout the planning process. She was very nice, patient and responded very very quickly (within hours) 100% of the time. She was so sweet and very easy to work with. I even lived 2 hours away and planned my entire wedding (even the final walkthrough) away from the site. Taylor also coordinated with the vendors to make sure everyone knew what time and where they needed to be.

My day of planner was Dawn, she was also awesome. She was so friendly and fun. She was great at getting everyone where they needed to be on time.

Everyone was so professional and great throughout the entire process. I highly recommend this venue. Thank you all SO much.

We absolutely loved working with Taylor from beginning to end! She was extremely responsive and always available for the many last minute questions that I had! We knew the History Center was special from our first meeting there. As soon as we left, we had decided this was the place we wanted to get married. We loved that it is located in the heart of downtown Orlando and walk able to our hotel and rehearsal dinner location. The ceremony location in the original Orange County courtroom is special. The warmth and richness of the wood will make for a perfect backdrop for our pictures. We had so many compliments on how unique this venue is and we cannot wait to get our pictures back! The value was incredible as the cost included custom lighting, table rentals, and the ability to customize the floorplan to suit our needs. We loved this location and would highly recommend them!
