Bok Tower Gardens, a contemplative garden consisting of a 250-acre garden, a 205-foot tall Singing Tower with its carillon bells and the Pinewood Estate Historic Mansion made for the perfect mix of nature and architecture for this Citrus Garden Whimsical Wedding Styled Shoot.

 

The color palette for this styled shoot was inspired by the architecture colors of the Pinewood Estate Mansion and the mandarins and orange trees that abound in Bok Tower Gardens. The combination of the bold orange and yellow colors with the blush tones and greenery made for the most gorgeous color palette for Spring and Summer. The floral arrangements included gerber mini carnations, carnations spray rose, rose pin cushion with Israeli ruscus greenery. We featured two different bouquets including a more delicate one with flowers in blush tones and a more bold colorful bouquet with bright oranges and yellows.

The first bridal outfit was an elegant, dramatic black chiffon gown featuring long sleeves embellished with sequin embroidery. The skirt was a flowing A-line of lined chiffon with a side slit. The tall trees, greenery and bell tower at Bok Tower Gardens all added to the elegance of the first part of the styled shoot and our model, Kayla wore the dress with the sophistication worthy of such a stunning dress, just as a princess would roaming around her mansion.

 

The second bridal outfit was an enchanting blush tulle gown with a lightly beaded bodice and airy tulle skirt. This skirt is lined to about mid-thigh and the tulle has a side slit. The back is super low with a center back zip. The Pinewood Estate Mansion with its grotto and mandarin garden made for the perfect backdrop for such a delicate and feminine gown. Our bride wore her hair up in a beautiful style, and make up in rose tones, simple, yet stunning.

 

Our groom wore a navy blue slim fit tuxedo which made contrast with the orange boutonniere and perfectly complemented the bride’s attires. The cake featured real orange slices in a contrasting light blue fondant. We organized put this styled shoot to serve as inspiration for future brides, showcase an elegant & dramatic look and a delicate & feminine one, feature fun Spring and Summer colors and capture the beauty of this hidden gem venue in Florida, Bok Tower Gardens.
