Alfond Inn Wedding - Winter Park, Florida - Ala & Tareq

Surrounded by family, Ala and Tareq had the perfect intimate wedding at Alfond Inn. Miguel and I did not get as much lead time before this wedding as we usually do with our couples. We didn’t have time for an engagement session or any of the usual pre-wedding things because Ala and Tareq found us TWO DAYS before their romantic Alfond Inn celebration! But none of that mattered, because they were naturals in front of the camera. Of course, it would be hard for them not to be. I mean look at them, they’re stunning!

Few venues do luxury weddings in Orlando as well as the Alfond Inn in Winter Park. Even on a smaller scale, like this gorgeous intimate wedding, Alfond Inn is unparalleled. The scenery, service, and atmosphere were all the perfect setting for this sweet and romantic wedding party.

Luxmore Grande Estate Wedding Inspiration

Ahhhhh! I have been DYING to share this shoot with you all for SO SO LONG! And today I finally can because we have been featured on Every Last Detail!

Seriously, you have to check out the gorgeousness that is this wedding inspiration shoot. Luxmore Grande Estate was the perfect backdrop to my vision. Classic, elegant, timeless, and just plain pretty!

And don’t even get me started on those florals from Flowers By Lesley! She did a stunning job. Really, everyone involved did. The invitation suite, the hair and makeup, and the cake were all just what I had imagined. I couldn’t have asked for more.

So, without further ado, here are the images I’ve been dying to share.

Howey Mansion - Venue Spotlight - Howey In The Hills, Florida

Howey Mansion Wedding-1.jpg

Miguel and I had the pleasure of walking through the stunning Howey Mansion today. This mansion just opened for weddings earlier this year, and it's not hard to see why. I mean, look at how beautiful this place is!

This grand staircase greets you as you walk through the door, and what a lovely greeting it is.

 The Library

The Library

The library has a pretty cool secret: a hidden lock to open a prohibition era cellar. How cool is that!? Couples can choose to rent out the hidden cellar as a speakeasy for their wedding. That's pretty much the most awesome thing I've ever heard.

Bok Tower Gardens Wedding - Katie & Cory

Bok Tower Gardens Wedding.jpg

His voice wavered slightly. Tears started to form in his eyes. Everyone in the church was silent as they listened to him speak. His little girl was getting married, and the time had come to give her away. As he spoke about the traditional pinning of the tartan and what that meant to their family, no one made a sound. A single tear fell. The emotion in the room was palpable. Katie and Cory were surrounded by those they love most, and everything was perfect. 

When Katie first reached out to us to photograph her wedding, we were beyond thrilled! Katie is a dear friend of ours from college, and we were so happy to hear she had found the man of her dreams. There are so many things we adored about this wedding day. It was laced with tradition and sentimentality. Katie wore her mother's wedding gown and her grandmother's ring. Cory was gifted a traditional Celtic tartan. The bride and groom cut the cake with a sword! If every wedding we get to photograph is as full of love as this one was, we will be very happy indeed.

Katie and Cory, thank you so very much for trusting us to photograph your wedding day. From the moment I met Cory, I knew Katie had found her perfect match. The joy emanating from you two, first at your engagement session, and then on your wedding day, was infectious. We wish you many years of continued joy and happiness, and we hope our pictures can serve as a testament to your love.
