Saturday was the reception, which was about 6 hours. This time it was at a reception hall in Haines City (the ceremony was at her parents home). This was a gorgeous location, and it was massive! It had to be to accommodate all 350+ guests! The authentic Cambodian band played throughout the entire evening, and it was all just so incredible. Enjoy the sneak peak: it was so difficult choosing which photos to show for this one!
For those of you who don’t remember Jeff & Meredith from before, click on the link to see their engagement session. Their wedding took place in Key Largo this past weekend, and man oh man was it just GORGEOUS! I am guilty of being raised in Florida and having never been to the Keys, so this was very exciting for me. The drive there was absolutely beautiful, and I just couldn’t get over how *perfect* the weather was for an outdoor ceremony in the Keys. I met with Meredith and some of the girls in their hotel room for some getting ready photos, and after a quick bridal portrait session we headed down to the water for the amazing ceremony. It was a quaint wedding with 50 or so guests, and everything was so laid back. The guys wore flip flops and rolled up their pants (so cute!), and many people walked around barefoot for a good portion of it. After the ceremony, we headed to the dock for some sunset photos. Craig and I had a great time with Jeff & Meredith during their portrait session. They are so much in love and just overall happy people. When I looked through the photos for the first time, I smiled almost the entire way through. That’s how you know it was a successful weddingThe reception was equally as amazing as the ceremony. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and we even got to dance with everyone a bit after we finished taking photos. Great wedding!!! Enjoy the sneak peak!
In case you don’t remember (or haven’t seen) Liz and Brian’s engagement session, you can view it by clicking on that link. I met these two love birds at the Your Wedding TV Bridal Show a few months back. There is just something about the two of them that is so amazing, you just can’t help but smile around them. Their love for each other and for life itself shows so much in their personalities, it really is amazing. Craig and I joined them at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Downtown Orlando where they each had separate rooms to get ready in. We then headed toward Rollin’s College to Knowles Chapel for their ceremony (which was GORGEOUS). That was my first time photographing in there and I just loved it so much. The reception took place at Leu Gardens and everything just went *perfectly* for their wedding day. Did I mention that the weather was unbelievably gorgeous? Enjoy their sneak peak! 😉
Okay…this picture right here is the reason I stress having two photographers. Craig caught the perfect moment of Brian’s expression when Liz walked in while I was photographing her entrance. I just LOVE it!
Their aunt (whoops…I don’t think she knew I took her picture!) deserves some credit for making the kids laugh. I’m pretty sure Woody from Toy Story was doing crazy dance moves on my head at one point…but it worked!
