November Wedding

5/ 5

I recently had my wedding at the History Center in November of this year. The wedding was perfect and more than I could dream of. Georgianna and her staff did a terrific job and I truly got to enjoy my special day. The venue is very unique and all of our guests loved it!

Great Wedding Location!

5/ 5

The History Center is a one stop shop. You can have the wedding ceremony in the courthouse or outside, cocktail hour downstairs, and the reception all in separate areas of the same building. My guest commented that they were glad they did not have to travel to another venue for the reception. I was very happy with the location of downtown. It is so much to do in the day time and plenty of nightlife. We chose to stay at the Embassy Suites hotel, which is in walking distance from the History Center. I love this location and the staff is awesome! I mostly worked with Brittany and she always answered my questions promptly. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I would recommend hosting an event at this establish for any occasion! Great staff and location.

Perfect Venue alongside excellent customer service!

5/ 5

I must say that this venue was perfect for our small, quickly planned wedding. I was in contact with Georgianna from day one and she was absolutly fast at responding to my emails and was such a huge help in getting our special day organized! She was attentive and willing to help in every aspect possible. If you want to be able to get married in a nice location that suits your budget this is it! We used the courtroom as our location for the ceremony which worked out perfectly! We are both happy with our choice of venue and would certainly recommend for using as a wedding and reception location!

This place was AWESOME!!!!!!!

5/ 5

When my wife and I started our hunting we had scheduled our venue at a different place. After finding out the venue that we had scheduled had horrible reviews (and I mean horrible) we scrambled to find a new one. We narrowed it down to The History Center and met with Georgianna Jackson. From that point on it was smooth sailing. Georgianna was one of the best parts of our wedding experience. She took the bull by the reigns and helped us in every way possible! We had to worry about absolutely nothing. She made all the calls to vendors and made sure the reception vendors were on time and prompt. Our reception was one of the best experiences of our lives. This venue also lets you bring your own liquor which made things so much more affordable. Brandy and I would like to thank the History Center and Most of all Georgianna Jackson for making our day, a day that we will remember for the rest of our lives! I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Absolutely AMAZING Wedding Venue!!!

5/ 5

The History Center made our wedding everything we could have dreamed of! The rooms were decorated perfectly, and everything was set up better than we ever could have hoped! Brittany was our coordinator, and Jacob (the intern) assisted Brittany with day-of coordination. When we arrived, they took care of all the decorations (even going beyond what we asked and taking care of details we would have missed). A security officer outside made sure people walking by the site did not linger in any of our outdoor photography shots. Brittany suggested other venders for me, from whom we booked our draping, catering, and cake. She worked directly with my husband and I to choose the colors and styles for decorations that would fit with our theme. The staff was more than willing to help us do anything for our wedding. They even helped us move our wedding schedule along (who to walk when during the ceremony, when the guests should be seated for the reception, etc.) The staff even stayed for the evening to keep the museum exhibits open for our guests during pictures. I would recommend the Orange County Regional History Center to anyone looking for a beautiful, stress-free wedding day!

Reception at the History Center

5/ 5

The staff at the Orange County Regional History Center was amazing! Georgianna Jackson was by our side the entire time making sure everything was perfect! She was always readily available via email or phone for any questions that I had throughout the planning process. The venue looked absolutely stunning and I’m very glad that I had my reception at the History Center!

5/ 5

I would not have looked at any other venue if I knew that we would have such an amazing experience! Georgianna was the best to work with. She made sure that we had everything we needed. She not only set up all our decorations, but she also contacted our vendors and coordinated their set up and tear down. It was so nice that we didn’t have to worry about anything! Our wedding was perfect thanks to Georgianna!

5/ 5

Aside from the uniqueness and beauty of the courtroom, having the wedding at the History Center was idea1 ! Brittany and her assistant, Jacob, were lifesavers. The ceremony and all the activities around it would have not gone well had it not been for them. They literally handled everything that needed to be done, plus a lot of extras that we wouldn’t have thought about but, as it turned out, were necessary to make the wedding a success. I give them 5 stars on everything ! Thanks Brittany and Jacob !! You made the wedding perfect !

Amazing Venue!!!!

5/ 5

My husband and I were looking for a unique downtown Orlando venue. We saw the Orange County Regional History Center and fell in love! I loved the vintage feel and the location was perfect! We had our ceremony in the 1920s Courtroom, and our reception in the Traveling Exhibit hall. The price was very reasonable and included a lot of extras (including uplighting in the reception room). Georgianna Jackson was an absolute dream come true. She is so knowledgeable, patient and helpful during the whole process. We used her has a day of coordinator and her and her team were absolutely amazing. I have NO complaints about our experience with the Orange County Regional History Center. If you’re looking for a fun, unique downtown venue – this is the place!

Elegant and Amazing!

5/ 5

The Courtroom is a very elegant and classy site for a wedding ceremony. The Exhibition Hall is pretty standard, but with the direction of the staff, specifically Brittney, the room was transformed into my dream reception! She was so helpful in the entire process and really made things easy on me and my family during the planning 🙂 The day would not have been the same without her help!

Ceremony in Courtroom B at The History Center

5/ 5

We can see The History Center from our window and knew it was the perfect indoor site for our ceremony for a May wedding. Brittany, the events coordinator, was great to work with — she not only offered assistance with planning our ceremony and rehearsal at The History Center, but she checked in with me throughout the wedding planning process just to say hello. We secured the Courtroom location about six months before our wedding and didn’t have to worry about anything from that time. The History Center has just two simple forms to fill out to plan the timing and seating of the ceremony. The Courtroom is a BEAUTIFUL venue, with dark hard wood and an intimate setting. With just under 100 guests we filled the room without extra chairs and had our family members sit in the Jury Box. Brittany attended our rehearsal and ran it very smoothly; she kept all of our ceremony materials safe overnight and set them up before the ceremony, which was very helpful so we had nothing to worry about. She also met with our florist and musician for setup that day. Although we chose to have our reception at another nearby downtown venue (The Rosalind Club), I would highly recommend The History Center for a great downtown wedding.

Gorgeous Venue!

5/ 5

We decided to change venues and when we found this one, we knew it was the one. It is a gorgeous venue, pictures do not do its justice. If you love history and want a vintage setting, I highly recommend this venue. Also, the coordinator, Brittany was very helpful, knowledgeable, and responded to all my questions quickly. The price you can’t beat as well- very affordable! Highly suggest. I will always remember my wedding day. 🙂

Great Find!

5/ 5

My husband and I loved the Orange County Regional History Center Courthouse. We were not interested in a typical church wedding but we still wanted a traditional feel. The background and lighting makes for amazing pictures. We had up to 120 guests and there was plenty of seating. Our immediate family sat in the jury booth which was neat. And honestly the exhibits outside the courtroom are good conversation starters. And Brittany Andrews at OCRHC was AMAZING! She was extremely helpful even 40 emails in.

Our wedding was more than we could have hoped for. Every last minute detail was taken care of by Georgianna, the wedding coordinator at the History Center. We were left with virtually nothing to do except get married and have a great time.

Orange County Regional History Center Rocks!

5/ 5

Georgianna Jackson and all of the crew at the Orange County Regional History Center were better than great. Our daughter’s wedding had some unusual requests, including the display of her original art created just for her wedding. Georgianna made sure that the art, as well as, everything else was placed perfectly. Just before the wedding there were changes to the seating layout. No problem. Seems one of the slogans they have is “hang in with rigid flexibility”. Thanks, Georgianna and all of the people at the Orange County Regional History Center for making our daughter’s wedding perfect! (I apologize if I forgot some names of other people who also helped – everyone was great!)

Unique and Gorgeous!

5/ 5

I had already made my mind up to have my wedding elsewhere when I attended the Downtown Bridal Crawl. When I saw how gorgeous the exhibition hall was, I changed my mind! Georgianna walked us through every aspect of the decor, rentals, catering, etc. She gave GREAT recommendations for vendors, and shared some totally unique ideas that we couldn’t wait to use. The only stress we had was keeping the guest list down. I read somewhere that the room holds around 200, but kept it just under 150 and I wouldn’t recommend more than that. We were extremely happy with the Orange County Regional History Center and Georgianna, and everyone loved our reception. It was unforgettable! I highly recommend this venue!!

Loved it!

5/ 5

I cannot say enough great things about the history center. I used them for both my ceremony and reception. From the first contact I had with the staff, they were informative, always available to answer questions, flexible and helpful. They kept in contact with my other vendors to ensure a successful wedding day and were there for the rehearsal the day before. They kept me updated throughout the wedding day and asked for any clarification on decoration set up, as needed, as we opted for them to do the day-of coordination. All my guests commented on what a cool place it was to get married and it is perfect for a couple that isn’t super traditional. Love it!
