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. :)
One of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. <3
M A R R I E D ! <3
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
Courtney, I love you so hard. <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. :)
The closest I’ll ever get to riding in this thing is Nate sneaking in for a photo! :)
One of my favorites by Nate. :)
THIS. WEDDING. CAKE. YOU. GUYS. Bar set!!!! (That’s their centerpiece on the left!)
Oh, Courtney and Justin, can we do it again, please?! Thank you for letting us be a part of it! <3
It had been a while since we photographed an intimate wedding at Walt Disney World when Lisa and Steve’s day came around. There’s something wonderful about being surrounded by your closest friends and family! Lisa started getting ready at Coronado Springs Resort, another hotel we don’t get the chance to shoot around often.
I *love* the shoe shots Nate got! :)
Just the sweetest first look. :)
After we were done shooting at Coronado, it was off to the Boardwalk Inn for a Sea Breeze Point ceremony! <3
Loooooooooove that liiiiiight! <3
Lisa and Steve, thank you so much for letting us be a part of it all! <3
Keiko, her mom, aunt, and grandma came to Disney for a girls trip, and I’m so glad they asked us to come photograph Miss Keiko! <3
Hands down, the cutest part of the session was Keiko initially freaking out when we put her on the grass. Her grandma said it’s been non-stop snow at home practically since she was born, so the grass was so foreign to her- She might as well be walking on the moon! Lucky for us, Keiko was good standing still on it after a while, and with the right mix of crazy aunt making her giggle and just the right amount of snacks to bribe her with, I think we came away with some downright adorable photos. <3
F A V O R I T E .
Keiko, thank you for being so awesome and we loved meeting you!!! :)
