About Bok Tower Gardens

Imagine a secluded garden where beauty and serenity combine to provide the perfect setting for your wedding day. The sun streams through a canopy of trees to illuminate lush plants and delicate blooms. The gentle sound of the wind carries the songs of many birds as the enchanting sounds of 60 carillon bells resonate throughout the gardens.

Bok Tower Gardens invites you to celebrate your wedding day and reception in a truly natural setting. The splendor of nature provides an exquisite backdrop for your wedding, making memories that last forever.

The 205-foot marble and coquina Singing Tower is the focal point of the National Historic Landmark dedicated by President Calvin Coolidge in 1929. The architectural treasure has tile mosaics, sculptures, carvings and custom iron-work. Acres of ferns, palms, oaks and pines fashion a lush backdrop of flowering foliage and the spectacular seasonal color of azaleas, camellias and magnolias showcase an ever-changing work of art.

    Love, love, LOVE

    Rita, Danny and the team at Bok Tower were so great to work with. It rained on my wedding day; not so good when you planned for an outdoor garden wedding, right? However, the team at Bok went above and beyond to make it work and ensured my husband and I had the garden wedding we wanted with the most of the gardens' beauty we could have while still staying dry. I would highly recommend checking them out.

    Not only is Bok Tower Gardens one of the most beautiful venues in this part of the state, the onsite coordinator and staff there are wonderful. Rita, the onsite coordinator, was my point person throughout the wedding planning process, and she was fabulous. She communicated with me via email and patiently answered all of my (millions of) questions. Rita and the staff at Bok Tower Gardens did everything they could to accommodate my rather non-traditional wedding reception, and everything turned out perfectly! Because Bok Tower Gardens holds so many weddings throughout the year, they pretty much have it down to a science. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they're always ready to lend a hand wherever necessary. And the gardens are amazing, so all of your wedding pictures will look like something out of a magazine. If you're looking into Bok Tower Gardens as your wedding venue, go ahead and do it. You won't regret it!! :-)

    My husband and I could not have imagined getting married anywhere else besides Bok Tower Gardens! It is also where he proposed :) From the moment that we went to check out the various gardens and met Rita, the event coordinator, we knew that we were in good hands. She answered all of our questions and maintained excellent communication via phone and email as I randomly came up with additional questions during the months before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the volunteers and Rita were so helpful to my family and I, assisting with rides on the golf carts for transportation and pointing people in the right direction. One female volunteer even adjusted my wedding dress train for me as we drove around for photos after the ceremony. Everyone was so kind and patient and we are just so glad that we got married there. Yes, it was an expensive venue; however, the gardens were worth it (along with the idea of knowing that our money is going to a non-profit agency, and not just some hotel, etc.). We love Bok Tower and look forward to using our gift membership :)
