The Burroughs Home & Gardens is taking reservations and finalizing plans for its inaugural “Brunch on the River: an Inspirational Bridal Exposé” to be held on November 11, 2018 to showcase the venue’s expansive waterfront views, alongside an array of over 45 wedding professionals and services. The strolling tour will introduce engaged couples to the grandeur of this historic, 1920’s Georgian revival style mansion located at 2505 First Street in downtown Fort Myers. Cost of admission is a $5 donation to the Uncommon Friends Foundation that maintains the historic property. Valet parking will be available.
The exciting event is for discerning bridal couples who want their upcoming wedding to be both personal and extraordinary. Guests will stroll through the interactive and inspirational displays throughout the grand old home, manicured grounds beneath the canopied oak trees, and along the river bank for food tastings and stimulating wedding ideas. Attendees will meet standout caterers, officiants, photographers, florists and a variety of the most creative and reliable wedding vendors in Southwest Florida. Cindy Ekonomou, director of special events for the Burroughs Home said, “We are delighted to partner with Jason & Todd’s Diamond District and CocoLuna Events on this unique bridal event.” All brides attending will be entered to win a $2,500 gift certificate from the Diamond District. Pre-registration for this one-of-a-kind showcase is encouraged, and one pre-registrant will win a complimentary tuxedo or suit rental from The Tuxxman.
