Historic Florida Wedding Venue

Celebrate love and history with a wedding at a historic Florida wedding venue. For example, one of Florida’s first “attractions” was The Citrus Tower. Built in 1956 on one of the highest hills in Florida. This observation tower rises 226 feet into the sky. Offering stunning views, rich history and classic Florida charm. Therefore it is the perfect backdrop for your wedding.

Charm and Nostalgia

This styled shoot was created and designed by Seas Your Day Events. The inspiration came from the theme – Citrus Luxe. To sum it up, they married the Old Florida charm with a modern elegant flair. In addition, they partnered with some local Clermont wedding professionals to further celebrate the connection to the community. For instance, the photographers of PB&J Studios. Who beautifully captured the charm and nostalgia of this venue.

SKy High Reception

Take your wedding reception to new heights. That is to say, welcome your guests to the Citrus Tower Observation deck. Soaring 22 stories above the ground, your guests will have a panoramic view of Lake County, FL. First the rolling hills of Florida’s ridge section. And then the hundreds of spring-fed lakes.

Celebrate love and history by throwing back to the days of orange groves. For example, serve citrus themed food and dessert. Similarly, decorate this charming historic venue with citrus hues and green foliage. To sum it up you will feast your eyes on the views and the food.

Be unique and have fun

This styled shoot highlighted the versatility and nostalgia only a true Florida landmark could achieve. Most importantly, the shoot embodied the unique elegance of a historical Florida wedding venue. But also the fun that comes with bringing individual couples’ dreams to life.

For instance, you can end your day with some video game fun and friendly competition in the arcade located on the first floor. And don’t forget your sparkler exit.

Models, Gowns, Décor and More

We are so excited to share with you this behind the scenes look at our recent I Said Yes! FL Wedding Magazine cover shoot. A group of really talented Central Florida wedding experts came together and made some beautiful art to grace our cover.

The location: The Maitland Art Center, Maitland’s own National Historic Landmark. The Art Center is one of the few surviving examples of “Mayan Revival” or fantasy architecture in the Southeast. In turn it is one of the main reasons it was named the first National Historic Landmark in the four-county area of Central Florida.

Amanda with For The Love of Events partnered with the photo and video team PB & J Studios. They worked closely to come up with the theme for this Summer/Fall wedding magazine cover shoot.

“The team was looking for an edgy boho concept, which is how the Art & History Museum came into the mix as our venue of choice.” said Amanda

An Edgy Vibe + Some Fun

To portray an edgier vibe the talented vendors involved incorporated specific elements that fit the look.

The colored floral from In Bloom Florist brought depth and beauty to the design. Additionally, the darker tablescape pieces from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals added the perfect touches.

Morgan Hunter Desserts was able to match the design of the cake to the floral with ease. Cake designers are true artists!

The stationary and signage from Tortoise Designs provided a fun balance. The adorable earrings provided from Honeymoon Clay Co are perfect for any edgy bride on her wedding day.
