This Magical Sydonie Mansion Wedding Blends Florida Vibes with Spanish Influences

June 24, 2018 | juliette

Becca and Daniel’s wedding at Sydonie Mansion was the epitome of winter glam with an old-world feel. The Florida venue had a distinctive Spanish style and gorgeous landscaping that set the scene for a romantic day from beginning to end. Although the decor was minimal, the focus on gold accents, bold florals, and rich pops of color created a truly elegant look and feel that was perfect for a winter wedding. We love that Becca channeled a glam bridal style with a BHLDN gown, Kailey Ellyn Bridal Couture lace topper, and edgy makeup and her groom looked sharp in a classic black suit and patterned shirt from H&M. Between the couple’s sweet first look in the courtyard, their emotional ceremony on the mansion’s back porch, and the joyful sparkler reception exit, Howard Photo + Film captured every angle of this unforgettable day on camera and Campfire Films brought it all to life on film.

The Couple:

Becca and Daniel

The Wedding:

Sydonie Mansion, Zellwood, Florida

The most memorable part of the day was our first look. We decided to do a first look because we wanted that moment to be very intimate and special for Daniel and I. We created our first look in the garden/courtyard of our venue. I will never forget Daniel seeing me in my dress for the first time and the look on his face when we locked eyes.

The best wedding planning advice I can share is figuring out the elements that are most important to you and focus your time/ energy on those things. It is so easy to get caught up in every little detail and every decision which can be very overwhelming. For Daniel and I, the venue, photography/videography, flowers, and ceremony were the most important things that we would not budge on.  Also, take a moment to step back and take everything in because the day will fly by. You’ll cherish that memory forever.

We chose our venue because of the breathtaking detail of the mansion and landscape it provided. We wanted a venue that represented our dream of combining a Spanish/Florida/winter look and the Sydonie Mansion did just that. We also loved the fact that both the ceremony and reception could all happen at the same venue.
