How It All Began
The Luxmore Grande Estate’s tale starts with Tamuel, the visionary owner, who began her career as an event planner. The journey led her to the management of Cypress Grove State House in Orlando, another beautiful event location in the heart of Orlando. However, the desire for a venue they could truly call their own sparked a search for the right venue, and in 2013 they discovered the beautiful Luxmore Grande Estate. Through meticulous renovation, this once private residence transformed into a hidden wedding and event wonderland. It is tucked away in the beautiful town of Winter Springs, just north of Orlando. This beautiful wedding and event venue is nestled near Lake Jessup offering stunning views and peaceful scenery.
What Sets Luxmore Estate Apart: Versatility and Personalization
The Unique Essence:
Couples have plenty of choices when looking for an event location in the Orlando area. The Luxmore Grande Estate, though, stands out for its exceptional versatility. It exudes Southern charm and sophistication while providing couples with a blank canvas to create their dream wedding – whether it’s a Boho affair, a minimalist celebration, or a maximalist extravaganza a couple can truly create anything their heart desires here. When you are looking for an event venue, it is important to assess how you feel while you taking a tour. The Luxmore Grande Estate has a ton of charm, and it is easy to see the many possibilities you can create in the space. As a musician, I loved the beautiful areas outside that set a stunning stage for entertainment and the wonderful acoustics inside that will resonate my music through the beautiful rooms.

In our chat, we had the pleasure of speaking with an integral part of The Luxmore Grande Estate – the event manager Hollie Borak. Their role involves ensuring that from the moment a couple books their special wedding day, their vision comes to life seamlessly. This includes coordination with catering, fine-tuning layouts, and overseeing the intricate details that make each event unique.
Hollie shared insights into their responsibilities, from managing events at The Luxmore Grande Estate to networking at various locations. The role involves being the point of contact for clients, ensuring a smooth transition from the sales manager to the event manager once the booking process is complete. Hollie will be there to guide you through everything, so no need to stress about your big day. Hollie and their team have experience and passion on their side to be a thoughtful guide to you through the entire process.
Adding the Finishing Touches: Lighting and Catering Options

Just imagine what your evening event would be like on the beautiful grounds overlooking the fountain, this is just stunning!
While Big City catering is a preferred choice, The Luxmore Grande Estate allows couples to bring in specific catering preferences. This flexibility ensures that every aspect, including the menu, aligns with the couple’s tastes and preferences. So if you have another preferred catering choice, the staff will work closely with your vendors to ensure everything turns out perfectly.
Capacity and Memorable Moments: A Glimpse into The Luxmore Grande Estate’s Essence
The Luxmore Grande Estate can host up to 200 guests indoors, with the grand ballroom accommodating 160. The venue’s adaptability ensures a seamless experience for events of various sizes and styles. There are multiple spaces on the grounds to host various party sizes. From indoor to outdoor space or the grand ballroom to intimate rooms, you are sure to find a charming place on the grounds to meet the needs of your event. Both large and intimate events would work well in the event spaces available to clients.
In a heartwarming revelation, the event manager shared their most cherished event – Rochelle and Michael’s wedding. “I got to work alongside Joy to V events, Carlene, she was amazing as well. And honestly just seeing everything come together and I got to see their whole room reveal and they were crying because it was exactly what they wanted. I got to see the family react to everything and say that it was exactly what they envisioned.” Hollie also mentioned how the couple displayed photos of their love story in the beautiful library and how the couple’s meticulous planning, including floral arrangements and personal details, showcased the venue’s ability to bring dreams to life.
The Heart of The Luxmore Grande Estate: A Reflection on Music and Uniqueness
Music in Weddings:
As a musician, I emphasize the power of personalized music choices. The music you choose for your special event not only sets the mood but leaves a lasting memory. I told Hollie the story of my husband’s Star Wars Imperial March for his groom’s entrance. Back then playing this type of music was not common at all at weddings, it really was outside the box! Hollie mentioned a beautiful story about a pianist arranging Mac Miller’s songs on the piano for a couple. Many times in planning for a special event, the music is last on the list, but I encourage you to think about your music sooner than you think.

The event manager highlighted the role of music in uniting families. By incorporating special songs and moments, couples create a medley of memories that resonates with both the couple and their loved ones. When you take the time to think about the music for your event, you can create so many meaningful moments that you and your family will never forget. My husband and I danced to our first song together and during that song, we spun out from each other, he then danced with his mom while I spun out and danced with my father. It was not a traditional mother/son dance or daddy/daughter dance, but it symbolized to us the union of both families. Taking the time to think about how you can make your music choices create special moments makes all the difference.
