July’s issue of Palm Beach Illustrated and Naples Illustrated Magazine used Edison Ford for their photography for a Fall clothing feature.  Edison Ford was sought out by the magazines’ editors because of all the unique locations for stunning photography.  No place else offers historical homes, gardens and beautiful trees to serve as a gorgeous backdrop for many of life’s important events. Business groups can also schedule retreats at Edison Ford to conduct meetings and learn some local history.  Most buildings have Wi-Fi and internet. The Museum’s new West Porch is also a great spot for after-hours refreshments and tours of the museum.

Cori recently received her Certified Wedding Planner credentials and is ready to schedule your event at Edison Ford.
