Downtown Winter Garden provided the *perfect* backdrop for our Halloween mini sessions. How precious is Miss Harper?! We photographed her Mom and Dad’s wedding years ago- It was so fun to catch up and see their little family in action! :)
You know the story: Boy meets girl, boy wants to talk to girl because she once purchased a tux that used to belong to Orson Welles… <3
Melanie and Brent were hooked from that first conversation. With 10 years of being a Disney Store cast member and over 50 trips to Walt Disney World under her belt, Lake Buena Vista was the only sensible place to have their wedding. We’re so happy to have been brought along for the ride! :)
Starting our wedding day on a weekday before the sun rises? Ohhhhh, those Epcot weddings. <3
Dylan was so proud to give his momma away!
In lieu of a unity candle or sand ceremony, Melanie, Brent, and their bridal party made wishes and tossed coins in the fountain they were married in front of. <3
Still awake on the boat to their reception! ;)
Oh Melanie and Brent, we love y’all and wish you the best!!
Audrey and Joe were married at the Sandia Resort in Albuquerque a few weeks ago. I mean… Look at this view from Audie’s getting ready room!! This wedding was extra special of course, because Joe is my cousin! It was such a perfect family reunion, and any wedding with my dad and sister in attendance is pretty much the best kind of wedding. :)
This was Audrey’s great-great-great grandmother’s button hook… I’m 95% sure I put the correct amount of “great’s” in there. ;)
Our faaaaaaaavorites!!! Y’all are gorgeous.
That. Backdrop. You. Guys. <3
Audie and Joe, thank you for having us and being so incredibly patient with your previews. We can’t wait to share the rest soon!!!
Ohhhhh, this bride. <3
Kristen found us though her co-cast members Nick and Jessie years ago (You know, Hallpants and Henry Bear’s parents), and has been a loyal blog reader since. Kristen had me in tears telling us a story of a visit she took to Clemson with friends- she ran into Jessie’s brother at an off-campus apartment and recognized him from their wedding photos!
My other favorite Root blog/ Kristen story is that when Scott needed help finding Kristen’s engagement ring, Kristen’s best friend sent him Veronica’s gummy bear ring photo from a few years ago for inspiration :
Needless to say, Nate and I were tickled that she brought us up to Pennsylvania to photograph her wedding to Scott. Kristen had dreamed of a barn wedding, but they had too many guests attending for the venues she was finding. Enter Normandy Farm, a location we randomly photographed a wedding at years prior! It’s so weird how often we’ve had repeat weddings at out of state venues, and luckily this one is a favorite PA wedding spot. <3
Kristen got that dress on the right for $1. ONE DOLLAR, Y’ALL.
Pre-ceremony love letters are the beeeeeest!
You can take the bride out of Disney, but you can’t take the Disney out of the bride! Kristen made those shoes herself, I told her she needs to start an Etsy shop!
Love a sweet first look! <3
Kristen’s brother made them this sign!! It greeted the guests as they showed up for the ceremony.
Kristen was one of the “sunniest” brides we’ve ever photographed- I think I smiled the entire time I was editing their photos! Scott is such a sweet guy and soooooooo smitten with his wife, I loved just watching them with each other on their wedding day. Luckily that’s literally my job, so that’s not weird at all… Right? ;)
Ceremony altar handcrafted by Kristen’s dad and brother. How sweet is that?!
Kristen’s best friend’s husband married them, and I love that before he even began the ceremony, he made the guests and bridal party roll their arms to loosen up and get comfy. :)
That cake topper!!!!!
What do you do when taking a table shot of cast members? Make them do mouse ears! <3
Dance floor Scott was my faaaaaaaaavorite!!!
Kristen and Scott, we love y’all too much!!! Let us know when you’re back in town!!! <3
Jessie and Mason joined our small but elite group of couples who got ready together! This was one of my favorite things about my own wedding day, and our pals Lisa and Jeffrey did the same. It’s not always a good fit for a wedding day, but oh how I swoon at these photos of Mason lacing up Jessie’s dress! <3
