Our Favorite Wedding Photography Locations at The Highland Manor

 This powder blue and white historic manor is truly an incredible backdrop all on its own. When it comes to capturing your special moments, the Highland Manor offers an abundance of enchanting portrait locations. However, the oak tree alcove would be one of our favorites. This charming old Florida setting is magical in its own right. The sprawling branches form a natural canopy and the play of light and shadows coming through the leaves, creates a fairy-tale backdrop that is perfect for capturing intimate moments, romantic embraces, and candid smiles. We also love taking portraits in the bridal suite, the event lawn in front of the manor itself, as well as, the glorious mahogany staircase!
