Jeff & Leslie – Casa Feliz Wedding – Winter Park FL

Jeff & Leslie’s story goes all the way back to elementary school photos and childhood friendships. They’d known each other their entire lives and after a decade or two their mother’s combined forces and suggested they hang out. Hanging out turned into dates and soon they were a pair. A pair that they admittedly never imagined happening all those years but when you see them together it’s hard to imagine how it hadn’t earlier! They’re beautiful Casa Feliz wedding was filled with all the friends and family these social butterflies have connected with but also all the decor that detail oriented Leslie put together. The letters, postcard seating and framed signage throughout the venue were stunning and brought the pink and gold color scheme together perfectly.

Congratulations to the Krummicks!

Arda & Ece – Casa Feliz Wedding – Winter Park FL

Arda & Ece are two of the most incredible people I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know. They practically glow when they’re together and if you add in their friends and family the feelings of pure joy and immense love between everyone is truly overwhelming. Let’s be honest, this photographer totally cried during toasts.. you’ll see in the photos that I was not the only one. I am so excited to see the strength and kindness of this family continue for generations to come and to have created a branch on the family tree at their Casa Feliz Wedding!

Aleesa & CJ – Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

I’ve known the Heinz family since my teen years so when the only girl in a family of 4 boys got engaged I was so honored they called me! Little could I have imagined that it would turn out to be one of the most beautiful wedding days I’ve ever seen. From Aleesa’s lace dress to the white mailbox style card box, every detail was stunning and unique. And if the details weren’t enough the amount of emotion in every room was overwhelming. There were tears during the ceremony, there was laughing during the toasts and there was lots of lots of love from start to finish. These two are so blessed to have found each other and I can’t wait to see where life takes them!

Kelly & Jonathan – St Andrews Chapel Wedding

Kelly and Jonathan are one of my favorite couples of all time. They are super fun and I had a feeling based on their beautiful proposal video and our engagement session together that documenting their amazing love story was important to them. So during planning when she said the best and most dangerous phrase ever… “photos are really important to us, how much time do we need?” I did a happy dance. For me, this is essentially letting the genie out of the lamp and it was a blast wandering the grounds of the gorgeous together at their gorgeous St Andrews chapel wedding. Their day had fun and romance and laughter and hugs and I was so so happy that they let me capture all of it!

Nikki and Kyle’s Danville wedding was something out of a story book. Everyone wandering this beautiful vintage designed home bustling with energy and excitement. The ceremony was met with laughter and tear soaked joy. During their vows it began to rain and it was magical watching all the guests and bridal party cuddle together to hear the worlds that would start Nikki & Kyle’s life together. The tears and laughter didn’t stop there. The bride and groom surprised their guests with the entrance which included a secret door raising and showing them off posed in epic style! The reception brought on heart felt speeches and a video for mom that didn’t leave a dry eye in the whole room! Those tears swiftly turned to so much laughter and dancing, not to mention the bridesmaids sing off and groomsmen photo booth prop serenade. Everyone there was overjoyed to have been invited and celebrate what is suer to be decades of love and happiness for the newlyweds.

Katie & Heber – Winter Park Racquet Club Wedding

 Katie & Heber. Good lord what can I say about these two without making this blog post 10 pages long. Katie is so bubbly and I love her facial expressions and enthusiasm. Heber is an absolute sweetheart with a little bit of hidden GQ model. Being at the Winter Park Racquet Club for their big day was such an honor and a truly good time. Bonus points that I got to work with a ton of my favorite vendors, we had a great time gabbing over the kick butt dinner they served us.

Megan + Juan – Bay Hill Wedding Orlando

I have been trying to write Megan & Juan’s blog post for what feels like an eternity and it never feels like the words I put down are quite good enough to describe their Bay Hill wedding. Up until their wedding they were rocking a long distance relationship between Florida and Texas so both times I got to hang out and photograph them together it was like sunshine was practically coming out of their ears! They couldn’t stop smiling, laughing and generally just being optimistic love birds! Kind of awesome!
