Kim, Denise, and the rest of the Capen House/Polasek Museum crew were the most wonderful people to work with! We had a destination wedding in Florida (we are from TX) and they helped make the planning go as smooth as possible. So quick at responding to emails, providing necessary resources for us to plan our big day, and helping out as much as they could. To anyone even considering this as an option, I recommend it 10/10!

The Capen House is truly a beautiful venue. Kim and Denise have been gems so far and so extremely helpful throughout the touring and booking process answering every single one of our questions and accommodating us as possible!

We worked with Kim on our wedding (roughly 100 guests). Kim and her team were wonderful and allowed us to visit the venue many times leading up to the wedding to make a plan for the day of. The venue was in great shape and we really enjoyed celebrating our wedding there. Kim was flexible and offered help to us with each of our vendors. The only note to be aware of is that you can only use acoustic music (no speakers) outdoors- this worked perfectly for us and wasn’t an issue whatsoever. Thank you to Kim and her team!

A huge thank you to Kim and all of the staff at The Capen House. We held our wedding there and it could not have been a more perfect day. Kim was very communicative throughout the whole process and was so accommodating to help us get everything just right the day of. The venue itself is gorgeous…from the gardens outside with the lake as a backdrop to the interior of the house with its beautiful hardwood floors. My guests are still commenting on how lovely the venue was.

Our wedding day was a dream at the Capen House! We loved the home, gardens, bridal suite, and lake views! Because this is a historic home, there are strict rules that come with this venue, but I will tell you that navigating around these is doable and is SO worth it! Our photographers kept commenting that every inch of this property made for a beautiful shot – it’s gorgeous here! The location also can’t be beat – our guests loved spending the weekend in Winter Park, and we were able to book a trolley for a short ride to our after party on Park Avenue. The required vendors for catering and rentals are lovely options and we had no issues working within the parameters. All in all, would highly recommend this venue!

“We held our annual board dinner at the Capen-Showalter House this year. The event staff was extremely helpful in getting all the details in order to make the evening run smoothly. Since we are a Winter Park based organization, it made the evening even more special to be in a home that holds years of local history. The Albin Polasek Museum and Capen-Showalter House are both local gems that should be enjoyed by all!”

The Capen House is stunning! We loved the variety of areas that gave a lovely flow from ceremony to reception without feeling too expansive for our intimate wedding (under 50 people). A big sell for us (aside from the gorgeous gardens and great indoor and outdoor options) was having the Scenic Boat Tour that could pick guests up from the dock and show off historic Winter Park! The staff was so sweet and helpful and worked with us on everything we needed. We also love that the funds go towards maintaining this beautiful, historic Florida house. Such a unique and fun venue!
