This Bok Tower Gardens Beauty took place at Bok Tower Gardens. It is a gorgeous 250-acre garden located in Lake Wells, Florida – built upon Iron Mountain, one of the highest points of peninsular Florida (295 feet above sea level). It features vistas of 50 -miles, and beyond. Paramount at the gardens, in addition, to the abundance of elegant florals, is the pink Georgia granite tower. It is a majestic 205-foot structure replete with carillon bells. The bells play concerts periodically throughout the day.
William and Francin chose these magical gardens to hold their Bok Tower Gardens Beauty of a wedding. Just in front of the tower is a wonderful view that is unequaled in Florida. It is just spectacular. It was that view that provided the setting for their ceremony. Lon Tosi from the Orlando, Florida officiant team of Sensational Ceremonies worked with the couple for several months to create a custom ceremony that spoke directly to the heart of their relationship. Their ceremony spoke to the meaning of love. Even the opening statement ended with the following: “And this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all – one known only by those who love. The bride and groom wrote their own special vows – reading them during the ceremony. Very special! There was a spiritual side to the ceremony that included the Irish Wedding Blessing – recognizing William’s Irish background. That reading is deep in beauty! It starts with iconic words of hope: “May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back”. That reading also ends with amazing words of faith and love: “And today, may the Spirit of Love find a dwelling place in your hearts. Amen. Pefrfect! Just perfect! Of course, Tanya at Luxjure Designs made certain that everything went off without a hitch!
