Jessica and Alex came down from our old home, Nashville, to get married in Walt Disney World.

This photo of Jessica and her dad getting ready together is my favorite!! :)

Hands down, one of the sweetest, most genuinely joyful weddings we’ve ever been a part of!

First off, Jessie and Mason got ready together which is the sweetest thing ever (though, I am a bit biased.) There’s something so romantic about your husband zipping you in your wedding dress and sharing in the morning excitement together. I realize most of our brides would not be up for it, and I don’t think it’s a good fit for everyone, but if you’re a couple like me and Nate, Lisa and Jeffrey, and these guys, well.. It can be the sweetest part of a wedding day.

Enjoy Jessie and Mason’s story! <3

What better day to post this sneak peek than on Bonnie’s birthday!

Bonnie was a college friend of Nate’s, and she and Alec were married at Casa Feliz. All day was a breeze to photograph, from Bonnie getting ready at the stunning Alfond Inn to their ceremony at Winter Park’s Casa Feliz, a venue we love so much we almost got married there ourselves!

We started the morning with Bonnie and her girls getting ready, my favorite part being when she and Alec exchanged these little journals they filled for each other with reasons they want to marry each other. :)

Bonnie’s whole wedding day was filled with such gorgeous vintage touches, even all the bridesmaids looked as though they’d stepped right out of The Great Gatsby. Her wedding bouquet was a brooch bouquet Bonnie and her mother made, and even their cake was dripping in brooches!

First dance love. Happy birthday, Bonnie! We can’t wait to share the rest in the coming weeks! :)

Just like me, Courtney grew up vacationing to Walt Disney World every year despite not being raised in Florida. It’s only fitting that after a surprise proposal in front of Cinderella Castle, Courtney and Justin tied the knot at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian.

Courtney has the spunk and effervescence of a Disney princess come to life, and we were so honored to document her and Justin’s day! It’s hard to believe it’s nearly been three weeks since these two became Mr. and Mrs., so excuse me for forgoing my traditional sneak peek post and just full-on blogging their fairytale. Enjoy! <3

So. Many. Favorite. Faces. Between Courtney getting in her wedding gown (pictured below), and having her veil put in, my Instagram account has posts for daaaaaays. <3

I finally got around to seeing the new Cinderella, and I can confirm that Courtney was waaaaay more excited for this carriage ride than the princess herself!

Every now and then in our Disney weddings, our brides and grooms will play a little joke on the best man: The officiant asks him for the rings, he realizes he doesn’t have them, and then Major Domo steps in to save the day. :)
