World Equestrian Center offers endless opportunities for ceremony, cocktail, and reception space. There is a charming formal chapel on site that can hold up to 125 for your ceremony. If you are looking for an outdoor ceremony area, behind the chapel is a gorgeous tree-covered space, or look no further than the Rose Garden which is located directly next to the Equestrian Hotel. Cocktail Hour and Reception space opportunities are endless. The Paris Room is an elegant gold and black room where you can host your cocktail hour that can spill out onto the Paris Terrace, followed by your reception on the Stirrups Terrace that overlooks the grand arena. You also rent one of the mezzanine levels inside each indoor arena, as well as one of the expo centers. With onsite hotel accommodations, restaurants, shops, and close to local attractions you can not go wrong with a World Equestrian Wedding.
