Bok Tower Wedding | Melisse and Patrick | Orlando Wedding Photographer

Melisse and Patrick’s Bok Tower wedding was so beautiful in every way.  It was a perfect Florida day with blue skies and sunshine.  I admit that I sometimes take for granted the fact that I live and work in such an amazing location.  I also admit that I had no idea about the rich history surrounding Bok Tower Gardens.  It is such a gem and has quickly become one of my favorite local wedding venues! An immigrant from the Netherlands, Edward Bok was “awed by the tranquility of the area, and wanted to create a place that would ‘touch the soul with its beauty and quiet’. He chose it as the perfect setting and purchased land to transform into a sweeping landscape of lush gardens featuring a majestic Singing Tower housing a 60-bell carillon. Originally called Mountain Lake Sanctuary and Singing Tower, he presented this extraordinary gift to the American people Feb. 1, 1929 as an enduring token of his appreciation for the opportunities he had been given.” The gorgeous tower is still there and is now Mr. Bok’s final resting place.  Equally as beautiful, timeless and special was the couple that got married there this day.  There are no sweeter words to a wedding photographer than “we have tons of times for photos after the ceremony and can go wherever we want!” And that, we did! Their Bok Tower wedding had no shortage of jaw-dropping vistas and we took full advantage of as many as we could! The time I spend with my couples after the ceremony and before the reception is my absolute favorite.  It’s not only when I get to capture some pretty images, it’s a chance for the bride and groom to revel in the fact that they’re now *married* and to enjoy some quiet, reflective time before joining their friends and family to party the night away.  I am a lucky photographer indeed to be able to capture such wonderful couples in such amazing locations, on the happiest days of their lives!
