Tropical Citrus Wedding Inspiration for Romantic Orlando Brides

When you think of Florida, what comes to mind? Well… citrus is definitely one of the first for me. Not only are sweet, delicious oranges a staple of Florida’s economy but it’s also such a romantic theme to a wedding day. Here you’ll see the gorgeous Leigh Ann (@leighannlights) showing off her gorgeous glow for this wedding day inspiration editorial shoot.

If you don’t already know about Orange Tree Golf Club, it has a freshly renovated clubhouse that is just ready to make your wedding day dreams come true. And as an Orlando wedding photographer, I couldn’t have been more thrilled when Jessica of Faiella Creations asked me to join as one of the photographers to this shoot.

I love this new spin on classic Florida charm. The vibrant colors, the moody bride, it’s all such a welcome change to the dusty blues and rose gold weddings I see on a regular basis. (Which I love… don’t get me wrong!)

Please enjoy this gorgeous tropical wedding inspiration and be sure to check out the list of amazing vendors below!
