12 Modern Florida Wedding Venues

Florida has some of the most stunning modern wedding venues! While the state is known for its beaches, we also have modern and upscale wedding venues to choose from here in Florida. From elegant mansions to industrial blank canvases to Italian vineyard style, there is something for everyone!


As a Florida wedding photographer and videographer, we have had the opportunity to work at each of these venues personally, and many on multiple occasions. These are some of our favorite Florida wedding venues to work at! Many of these venues also have indoor options, which is essential for weddings during the rainy season here in Florida.


From Saint Augustine, to Orlando, to the Tampa area – this list is mainly composed of central Florida wedding venues, with a handful in the Southwest Florida area (just a bit south of Tampa).


Here are 12 modern Florida wedding venues for the chic, elegant wedding couple!
