Can we just talk about how gorgeous Arundel Estate is? This gorgeous two-story estate house is the epitome of Southern charm and I am here for it! Wedding venues like this make my job So. Much. Fun! And the rustic elegant decor created by planner Cathie of C Squared Events fit the venue perfectly. I mean, just imagine having your cocktail hour on the pool deck and your wedding reception under those gorgeous trees! *swoon*
Tanea and James are recent Florida transplants and they’re full of fun! This vibrant couple recently moved to Orlando after James’ work had him traveling here on a regular basis. They both work in the wrestling industry (so cool, right?) and seem to feed off the others playful energy!
We had a blast shooting their engagement photos at The Villages Polo Club and Katie Belle’s provided the incredible picnic spread to snack on — and shoot! The Villages Polo Club is an incredible wedding venue, with a gorgeous tree serving as the backdrop for their events. It’s truly a hidden gem and Barbara, the events manager, takes excellent care of her couples and all the necessary details! And Katie Belle’s, well, they had my heart with cannoli cream filled strawberries! They handle the catering for the Polo Club and let’s just say you’re going to want to wear stretchy pants!
I absolutely loved photographing this same-sex styled wedding shoot in honor of Pride Month! Our real-life couple, Molly and Skye are super adorable and couldn't be more in love. The vendors that came together to create the shoot wanted to create something different from the current popular wedding trends and the copper accents were the perfect touch!
