Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate - ChampionsGate (Orlando), FL
From the moment we met with Savannah, one of the catering coordinators at the Omni ChampionsGate Golf Club, we knew that we found our reception space. When we walked into the Golf Clubhouse, to our surprise, Savannah had set up a mini tasting with one of the executive chefs. Amanda our Catering Coordinator was excellent. She provided us with menus from both the Golf Club House and from the Omni. We were able to mix and match as we pleased between the 2 menus so that we could truly customize our day. Working with Amanda and her staff was a pleasure. The day of the wedding was AMAZING. The Staff at the Golf Club House truly saw my vision. Our guests arrived and it was awesome to have the whole parking lot to ourselves. My guests absolutely loved this as the view was stunning overlooking the golf course and lake. As we walked around and spoke to our guests everyone kept saying how delicious the food was and how gorgeous the room was. My family from NYC kept saying how they thought we spent a fortune because of the exclusivity of the location and how we had the whole place to ourselves. The floor to ceiling windows provided a great backdrop that is absolutely stunning at sunset. The way that the sun glitters off of the water and casts dancing shadows on the walls of the room is perfect. It works as an additional lighting feature. From the setup staff to the wait staff and bartenders everyone was very professional and they treated our guest very well. Amanda was also there the day of our wedding she oversaw everything and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. There is a saying Location Location, Location, Location and this rings true to the Omni ChampionsGate Golf Club House. If you are looking for an amazing view, excellent food, superb service, and to leave your guests in awe you have found the wedding venue of your dreams.

This place is phenomenal and offers a beautiful ceremony on the golf course as well as a gorgeous reception in their ballroom. We got married at the ChampionsGate Ballroom, which included an outdoor terrace and elegant wall decor; this made it easy to decorate, all we added were table centerpieces and drapery behind the sweetheart table. We loved the attentiveness of the staff, the convenience of having our guest stay on premises, and everybody bragged about our food- it was all delicious! From the very beginning, my husband and I were wowed by the professionalism and responsiveness of Lindsey (Director of Catering Sales), to the accommodations provided by Amanda (Catering Service Manager). We were welcomed with a detailed presentation on what is offered by Omni, including everything from available ballrooms to display of menu options. Omni truly has an incredible team that works well together to make your big day flawless!

The Omni Resort at ChampionsGate was the perfect venue to have our wedding. Details is what the team prides themselves for and boy do they deliver! The best value for your money hands down in Central Florida. My husband and I visited many venues and none of them treated us and spoiled us the way the Omni did. Will be recommending to everyone I know!

Amanda Demore and my day of wedding planner provided by Blush by Brandee Gar made the already convenient venue absolutely perfect! The staff at the Omni were always professional and ready to lend a helping hand whenever they could. The Omni has everything you could want at one site. It was a beautiful venue for both my ceremony and reception. We are still receiving compliments on the food, service, location and elegant ballrooms!

After long and frustrating months of searching and researching possible wedding venues my then fiancée and I were convinced that Omni ChampionsGate was our venue. Well, they did not disappoint!!! It was an absolute joy to work with the wonderful staff at the Omni ChampionsGate Orlando. Amanda Demore, the Catering Services Manager tag teamed with our brilliant wedding planner Brandee Gaar, to make our dream wedding come true magically!! From start to finish, with friendly and efficient service and sound advice, they made it all effortlessly seamless. They, along with the entire Omni team were very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. It was extremely easy to communicate our ideas to them and they took the time to help us work out every detail. This includes but not limited to selecting the perfect meal for our guests, finding the perfect spot for us to exchange our nuptials to recommending the best vendors. We could not have asked for more. The food was delicious and was exquisitely presented. Our guests were totally wowed by our wedding. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and luxurious; beautiful hotel with world class facilities; great spa setting and services. We would certainly recommend The Omni ChampionsGate as your wedding venue. Stop searching and just book!!!

I cannot say enough about the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate and the team that we worked with planning our wedding! From the start of planning Lindsey Kurtz and Amanda Demore did a fabulous job, communication lines were open and feelings of being VIP were felt. As busy as this team can probably get, we never felt left hanging or in the dark. Our wedding was not just a day it was a fun filled week for family and friends. The Omni has all you want for ceremony location, reception ballrooms and a place for guests to lay their heads. We fell in love with the Omni property our first visit with Lindsey and Amanda. My husband and I enjoyed a complimentary round of golf, then were welcomed with champagne and delicious appetizer as we embarked deeper into wedding planning with Lindsey and Amanda. I explored several other Orlando venues but never got the prompt response or good feels that this dynamic duo gives off! We quickly were able to decide on an outdoor ceremony location and the beautiful ChampionsGate ballroom for our approximately 120 wedding guests. We were set up with Cullen, whom did a great job coordinating our room block and tackling our guest reservations. Omni offers a complimentary stay in a suite for the Bride and Groom on your wedding night, we loved the room and decided to stay in it the entire week of or wedding. Plus the bridal parties are provided with a special get ready room the big day. The night before our wedding we welcomed guests with a fun filled Tex-Mex party near the fire pit area. Amanda and Lindsey helped me created a big Texas style menu for my guests, this was a custom menu and everyone loved everything, especially my Texas raised groom. Attention to every detail down to particular food requests were honored. Our rehearsal went off without a hitch and we easily made our way to the fire pit to enjoy our guests. The morning of our wedding day, I was so excited to host a private yoga class for my lady family and friends. The Omni grounds were the perfect setting to watch the sun rise and feel the Namaste vibes with my lady tribe before all the craziness of the big day! My vendors were all lined and a timeline was set by the awesome Busy Bee team, this was a perk included in our wedding package, and much appreciated. Busy helped my mother decorate our ceremony site outdoors, which was conveniently located near the cocktail hour directly after the ceremony. One of the best things about this venue is the fact we eliminated travel for our all out of town guests for the entire wedding weekend. Our reception ballroom could not have been more beautiful , I must credit my mother and family for setting up the ballroom the evening before. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more! We loved everyone we met from the David's Grill bartenders or the poolside cabana employees. We did not celebrate just one day, we enjoyed ourselves and our family and friends for nearly a week. We especially loved our final day with our friends and family at the cabana that was compliments of Amanda the day after our wedding. We ended our stay with a private small family style dinner at the sushi restaurant called Zen. Everywhere we went we felt VIP, as did our guests. The groomsmen enjoyed the golf course, the ladies enjoyed the pool and spa! The children enjoyed the pool, kids camp and the Easter weekend festivities. We cannot wait to go back to visit our team and the Omni!

I fell in love with the Omni the moment we walked in. I initially set up a contract with Lindsey Kurtz who was extremely professional, phenomenal and very well knowledgeable! She was there with any question or concerns we may have had and she was prompt to answer. I felt no worries on my wedding day because of Lindsey Kurtz and her team. I can’t say enough about my experience. They ensured my wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish! I also worked with several of the suggested outside vendors who were just as great and were very easy going to any changes and/or concerns I had. I truly hands down felt like royalty on my big day! I felt sad that my experience of planning my wedding and working with Lindsey Kurtz and her team was over because I wouldn’t be working with the best of the best anymore. I would highly recommend planning your wedding at the Omni ChampionsGate Orlando. It’s absolutely PERFECT and magical!

It’s hard to adequately put into words how much the Omni’s team exceeded our expectations!! 100/10 hands down the best weekend of our lives. The day we toured it, we were presented plenty of options that fit right into our budget. They listened to our vision and took it to another level. The booking process was simple- the team ironed out every detail for us so we felt comfortable with our decision. We had dedicated contacts for room reservations, rehearsal dinner, catering, you name it. Although I’m organized, they were even more on top of it with friendly reminders for upcoming deadlines; I received frequent “just checking in on you” emails and calls. We had a world-class tasting with the catering staff, our fantastic planner from Blush by Brandee Gaar, and 4 guests. I felt like royalty- they pulled out the red carpet and the food that day & wedding day was out of this world. Take it from me - my mom is an Executive Chef and she was beyond impressed. The month leading up to the wedding was made easy because of them. The wedding week was amazing surprise after surprise - we had so many treats delivered to our rooms, we had check-ins from everyone to let me know everything was going smoothly, and the staff pulled it all off with no issues. Look no where else if you want a 5-star experience on your big day, with the best staff around. I would book them again in a heartbeat no questions asked. We are forever grateful for the perfect wedding day because of you all! Thank you!!

The Omni was the first venue we looked at and knew right away it would be perfect for our wedding. The property is beautiful and the staff is incredible! Amanda and Lindsay were there every step of the way to help me with making decisions, and very accommodating when I changed my mind! We were treated like royalty on our wedding weekend and everything was perfect. My guests had an absolute blast and had nothing but great things to say. We truly had a magical wedding. Anyone that chooses the Omni for their wedding is making an amazing choice!

I can not say enough wonderful things about the Omni for our wedding. We visited them first and had a feeling this was where we wanted to get married but after visiting other venues we knew 100%. The customer service at the Omni BEFORE we even signed a contract was absolutely amazing. We worked with Amanda during the planning process and Taylor took over about two months before our wedding because Amanda got promoted. Both were fabulous and both were 100% accessible the whole time we were planning up until the day of our wedding. I honestly couldn't imagine a better team than the team at the Omni. If you want an absolutely wonderful experience when it comes to planning your wedding with a team that makes it incredibly easy for you, the Omni is the way to go. Not to mention the grounds are beautiful and there is a ton of stuff for people who are staying at the hotel to do during the weekend! Honestly it is now two months after our wedding and I miss the planning process. If we were doing it over again, we wouldn't change one thing about our wedding weekend at the Omni.

Words cannot even begin to describe the experience my husband and I had with the Omni. We recently got married on January 6th, 2018 and our day was truly a dream come true. From the time we walked in and met with Lindsey for our tour we knew right then that we had found our home! Lindsey, Amanda and their team were absolutely amazing from start to finish and we could not be any more grateful. They were excellent with communication (which is hard to find nowadays) went over and beyond to work with our budget, accommodated us like VIP’s on our big day and took care of everything, man the list can go on and on – I could be here for hours.

I cannot say enough about The Omni Resort at Championsgate! Our wedding was perfect from start to finish! The staff at both the convention center and hotel were perfect and fixed any problems right away. Pricing was definitely more then worth it and they were able to work with us to make everything just the way we wanted and needed it. I would consider having another event here in a heartbeat! I would truthfully tell anyone to go and look at the venue and if you do not fall in love with your vision instantly I would be shocked. My husband and I cannot thank The Omni enough for making our special day so unbelievably amazing!
Stefanie, January 2018, The Knot
Omni at ChampionsGate is an amazing venue for weddings. Amanda and Lindsey are a great team to work with in planning your big day! They pay close attention to the details and go above and beyond for their couples. I highly recommend Omni at ChampionsGate for your special day!
