Wedding Style Inspiration: Outdoor Elegance at Bok Tower Gardens

on by in Weddings & Such

Photographer Stephanie A. Smith envisioned an elegant, classic outdoor affair that was every bit as sophisticated as a black tie ballroom wedding. This nature-filled gold, green and yellow inspiration shoot, brought to life by a team of talented Central Florida area pros, was the gorgeous result.

When choosing a location for the shoot, Stephanie avoided the typical Florida palm trees and beach scenes: "I wanted to show that there are many options in this beautiful state such as Bok Tower Gardens. It's rich with mature trees, buildings, and flowers. I often find myself lost in its beauty when I tour the property."

Stephanie chose gold, for a sense of timelessness, as the focal color choice; the rest of the palette of earthy greens and browns complemented the gardens. High back chairs, long tables and vintage tableware added to the natural, elegant feel.

The "bride and groom" were outfitted in timeless, elegant style, as well - he in classic black, and she in a gown with a sheer overlay at the neckline for a little more coverage. The big Audrey Hepburn-esque bun was the perfect icing on the top.

    Thank you so much for the feature! I absolutely loved this shoot & team! If I had a second wedding (to the same boy, of course) I think it would look a lot like this.. But then I say that a lot! :)
