Evoking images of Gone with the wind, Eden Gardens State Park, is another one of Emerald Coast's hidden jewels. Eden State Gardens offer over 10 acres of manicured lawns, moss draped gardens and trails overlooking Choctawhatchee Bay and is an enchanting place to say "I Do".
As you arrive, you are welcomed by immense Spanish moss-draped oak trees, fragrant Camellias and hundreds of colorful butterflies!! In our opinion, it is every photographers dream to shoot a wedding at Eden Gardens. There is no shortage of inspiration: take a stroll by tranquil reflection pool, step into fun butterfly garden, sneak a kiss under the wedding tree and finally watch the sun set over the bayou from the rustic fishing dock.
Of course you can't forget about the turn of the century Wesley mansion! Lovingly restored and furnished with period antiques, this magnificent manor still houses second largest Louis XVI collection of priceless furnishings!
So, as time stands still behind the gates of Eden Gardens, its classic charm makes it an ultimate wedding destination for our Southern Brides.
