What makes your venue unique?

We are a lakefront, historic venue that offers inside and outdoor options. Nestled in a sculpture garden in charming Winter Park, FL, The Capen House and its patio and lawn overlooking Lake Osceola. Venue rental includes use of two lakefront lawns, boat dock, The Capen House, and it’s attached patio. 

What style of wedding works best for your location?

Couples who are looking for an intimate setting for their special day will love what The Capen House has to offer! Most couples have an outdoor ceremony and then can have either an outdoor reception or transition inside The Capen House for dining and dancing. We are perfect for weddings of all sizes, but we really shine for groups of 50-75. We are LBGTQ-friendly.
