The sun was shining and the weather was absolutely perfect for Sarah and Peter’s wedding in Orlando, Florida. Sarah’s strapless Pronovias gown was a vision of elegance, especially when paired with Peter’s suit from the Black Tux. The bridesmaids wore different dresses with a neutral pallet of grays and nudes accented by pops of colorful florals pulled right from Sarah’s mother’s garden; the groomsmen cleaned up nicely in sharp black suits and nude ties. Sarah, Peter, and the formal party all got ready on Sarah’s family property, which was essentially a real-life secret garden, nestled away in Winter Garden.
Sarah’s family grounds were a gardener’s dream (spoken from the heart of an amateur gardener) and made the PERFECT backdrop for an intimate first look and to knock out all of the formal party group portraits ahead of the ceremony, so that everyone could enjoy cocktail hour at Howey Mansion later on.
A first look meant that we were able to take bride and groom portraits at all THREE locations (family grounds, the church, and the remarkable Howey Mansion), which gives their gallery a completely unique to them look and feel.
They had their ceremony at First United Methodist Church of Winter Garden, where Sarah and her family have been attending services for their entire lives, giving the location a super sentimental feel.
After the ceremony, guests were welcomed for a spectacular reception at the Howey Mansion, where they enjoyed viewing the first dance and speeches under market lights in a cozy open air reception space. After the traditions were complete, the party went on inside (and downstairs at the hidden speakeasy!) until it was time for the sparkler exit!
A huge THANK YOU to all the vendors who helped make this day possible!
