Oh, what a delightful and lively engagement session it was at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales! Despite the rain that showered us for most of the session, this fun-loving couple brought an energy that could brighten even the gloomiest of skies. Their willingness to embrace the unexpected weather with laughter and spontaneity truly made this session one for the books. As a photographer, I couldn’t have asked for a more spirited duo who trusted my style guide and donned two distinct outfits, each reflecting their personalities in the most enchanting way.
The session started with elegance as the bride stepped out in a stunning white evening gown that exuded timeless beauty against the lush backdrop of Bok Tower Gardens. The soft drizzle only added a touch of romance to the atmosphere, making it feel like we were in our own little fairytale. They danced and twirled despite the raindrops, their laughter filling the air with joy as if nature itself was celebrating their love.
As the rain subsided, we seized the opportunity to transition to a second outfit that perfectly captured the couple’s vibrant spirits. The bride’s fun and flirty white cocktail dress, adorned with peacock feather sleeves, was an absolute showstopper. The playfulness of the outfit mirrored their infectious personalities, and together, they brought an undeniable spark to every frame. It was as if the sun peeked through the clouds to join in on the fun, creating a radiant glow that made their love shine even brighter.
In the end, this session spoke to the power of love and laughter – how they can turn the most unexpected circumstances into cherished memories. As I look back at the photos, I’m reminded of the pure joy that emanated from this couple, and I’m grateful to have been a part of their beautiful love story at Bok Tower Gardens. Can’t wait for their Bella Cosa Wedding in just a few more months!
I book a limited number of weddings each year. It's not uncommon for spring and fall weekends to book up early.
