definition of orange blossom

Orange blossoms have been incorporated in wedding attire for their symbolism of purity, innocence, and chastity since ancient China. However, it was Queen Victoria in 1840 that set the trend when she wore a large head wreath full of orange blossoms. Ok enough history….

Orange Blossom Bride was created with the Central Florida bride in mind. Yes, there are many wedding websites with beautiful ideas and locations for your big day. The only problem: where are you going to find a breathtaking mountainous backdrop or a gorgeous wheat field that stretches for miles?

That’s not to say that Central Florida doesn’t have its own charms and uniqueness! In fact, many couples from around the world choose to come to Central Florida to exchange their vows. This website is dedicated to all the beauty that you can find in the gorgeous Sunshine State. Orange Blossom Bride is where you will find local venues, vendors, inspiration, and real weddings, along with great ideas and tips.

If you are planning a wedding in Central Florida, you are in the right place!

Meet the Editor

Amanda Schmidt,

Hello!! I’m Amanda, the co-owner and editor of Orange Blossom Bride. I’m so happy that you’ve stopped by!

While working in the industry with a vintage rental company for a short time, I realized that there weren’t any wedding blogs just for the Central Florida area. And so Orange Blossom Bride was born! Since our launch in January 2016, the blog has grown and we now publish a magazine two times a year.

As a former bride myself, I understand the stress wedding planning can bring. My goal with Orange Blossom Bride is to provide engaged couples with a local wedding resource and the area’s best wedding venues and pros that will lessen this stress and help them to enjoy the wedding planning process.

A Little Bit About Me:

  • Born in New Orleans but moved to Orlando when I was 5, so I’m pretty much a Central Florida native 😉
  • Love any reason to celebrate, hence why I love weddings!!
  • Disney and the beach are my happy places
  • Proud University of Central Florida Alumni
