To this extent, let’s discuss what this splendid photoshoot entailed…
Mizner Dream Magazine
So, most of you who are familiar with the Boca Resort have probably heard about the Mizner Dream Magazine. However, for those who haven’t, let us tell you a bit about it.

To that end, Diamonds By Raymond Lee always capitalizes on an opportunity to get involved…as we did this past October 30th, 2019.
The Mizner Name
Before we closely examine the photoshoot and everyone involved, let us provide some more insight into the “Mizner” name, as it is spread across Boca Raton in various ways…
For example, you have the Mizner Park and the Mizner Dream Boat…
The founder of Boca Raton was Addison Mizner. He was an architect with a vision was to build a resort city that was the “Venice of the Atlantic”.
Hence, the name Mizner Park and Mizner Dream.
The Mizner Park is a lifestyle center in downtown Boca Raton. At Mizner Park you will find restaurants, entertainment, and various museums and services. Mizner Park has a classical Mediterranean feel because that is where Cooper Carry (a design firm) took inspiration from when designing it. Moreover, that was the original vision of Addison Mizner.
Mizner Dream Boat
As for the Mizner Dream Boat, it is a Private Yacht Charter known as Boca’s “limousine on water”. The Mizner Dream, which has the same name as the magazine, provides numerous delights and sights as guests comfortably cruise South Florida’s famed Intracoastal Waterway…
So, now that you have some context on Boca Resort and Mizner Dream Magazine, let’s dive in to the main event of this post, the photoshoot.
