About The Casa Feliz Wedding Venue

656 N Park Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789

Casa Feliz, once known as The Barbour Estate, is a true gem of Winter Park. In 1932, industrialist Robert Bruce Barbour commissioned famous architect James Gamble Rogers to build him a home on the shore of Lake Osceola. He gave Rogers unlimited creative freedom, telling him, “Design it any way you like. If I don’t like it, I’ll sell it.” The estate, a spectacular Spanish-inspired farmhouse, became a signature piece in Rogers’ portfolio. In the year 2000, the home was under threat of demolition. Over $1.2 million in private donations was raised to save the house, moving it to its current location on the Winter Park Golf Course and lovingly restoring it to its former glory. Today, the home boasts authentically restored Spanish roof tiles, whitewashed bricks, a bell tower, and scenic gardens.

Details of the Grounds

Casa Feliz is full of beautiful old-world details that create a stunningly romantic environment for a wedding. Two hospitality suites located on the second floor of the venue are perfect, comfortable spaces for getting ready for your wedding day. 

Your ceremony can be held outdoors in the beautiful brick-laden front lawn of the venue. An arched wooden door serves as your backdrop for your vows, surrounded by whitewashed brick and a second-floor balcony detailed in colors of the Mediterranean. You can also opt for an indoor ceremony surrounded by rich hardwood floors and hand-hewn beams. The indoor space is adorned with heavily carved European antiques and stunning views overlooking the lush courtyard. 

When it’s time to celebrate, you can keep the party lively outdoors in the beautiful brick courtyard. Beautiful brick archways, sea-colored shutters, and strings of market lights add an extra special ambiance. Lush green landscaping keeps everything looking fresh and beautiful. While the outdoor spaces have plenty of room for up to 120 guests, tents are encouraged for parties of more than 70 people. If you choose to celebrate indoors at Casa Feliz, you and your guests will enjoy the original grandeur of the home with seating spread throughout the living room, library, and dining room. Indoor weddings can accommodate up to 80 guests.

Casa Feliz became known for its exceptional events. In part due to their exclusive vendors who have been picked for their reputable services.
