The 2019 Villages Polo Club Hot Air Balloon Festival

Hot air balloons have been a long-time obsession of mine and for years I regularly attended a hot air ballon festival when I lived in NJ. So I was super excited when I heard the Villages Polo Club was doing a hot air balloon festival!

Mom and I went opening night and while the wind prevented the balloons from launching for competition, we enjoyed the balloon glow! Here are just a few of the way too many photos I took that night!

Tanea + James | Villages Polo Club Engagement Photos

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!
