As a wedding photographer, I get to visit many different cities to photograph beautiful couples as they join in love to start a new journey. One day, while photographing a wedding at the beautiful Magnolia Building in downtown Lakeland, it dawned on me...Lakeland is the perfect city for weddings in Florida. My mind was blown when I stepped onto the balcony and admired my surroundings. Three additional weddings were going on: one at Hollis Gardens, the Peggy Brown building, and at the Lake Mirror Promenade Loggia gates, just down the street from The Terrace Hotel. All four weddings were close enough, yet still very separate from each other. Each wedding had their own unique venue for their event. Keep in mind that these are just a few areas in Downtown Lakeland. There are many more gorgeous venues in Lakeland to host the perfect wedding that can fit many themes: rustic barn, industrial, gatsby, vintage, etc.
So...why should you get married in Lakeland? Not only are you sure to find the ideal venue for your dream wedding, it is perfectly located in the middle of Tampa and Orlando, with quick access from I4. The area is rich with history, lakes, and diverse culture. There are tons of venues to choose from for every budget: from urban, industrial settings in downtown, to gardens, historic hotels, beautiful churches, ranches, barns and farms. Lakeland is the perfect city for weddings!
