As a Fort Myers Wedding Photographer who actually lives in the heart of Ft Myers, I love wedding venues like the Burroughs Home and Gardens that provide a glimpse into Fort Myers’ historic past. If you know Scott and I, you know this is not just some fluff for our wedding photography blog. We actually live in an old historic home, not too far from the Burroughs. Old homes like this not only provide beautiful grounds for your wedding ceremony and the photos that follow, but your wedding reception just feels more intimate, more like it’s a gathering of family and friends held at home — with none of the day after clean up.
Janine and Kurt’s wedding ceremony took place under the picturesque live oaks on the waterfront of the Caloosahatchee River. While I’ve photographed many weddings where there was no seating provided, this one was one of a few where the seating wasn’t used at all — they had a standing ovation for the entire ceremony! And why not? Janine and Kurt were a great bride and groom deserving of celebration on their fantastic wedding day.
The wedding reception took place inside the Burroughs home with the wedding dance on the giant outdoor porch. Peacock feathers were the thematic element used in the brides bouquet and hair, centerpieces, and was carried through to their beautiful wedding cake too, as seen below.
The Burroughs Home is located at 2505 1st St, Fort Myers, FL 33901
