Happy Anniversary, Stoners!

We’re often asked if we get bored of shooting so many weddings. I mean aren’t they all, like, the same?

That statement could not be more false. That’s like saying to a parent, “Why have three kids and not just one? Aren’t they all the same?” Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but you know what I mean! We could shoot the same venues back to back and they’ll be completely different. The people, the weather, the decor, the vendors- There are so many ingredients that go into a wedding and thankfully, I’ve never gotten to a place where I feel like they run together.

I love when weddings like Jessy and Bligh’s come around. So completely crazy and wonderful and out of the box that to say we were kept on our toes is an understatement. Hey, let’s go out on the balcony for some bridesmaid robe photos! turned into Hey, let’s do a flashing photo! We didn’t just pose them around a yellow float plane for photos, Bligh (a pilot) made his entrance into the ceremony by flying in that float plane. Wish lanterns being launched by a crowd who truly enjoyed the open bar at the reception turned into OK so do we call 911 now because a wish lantern is stuck in that tree and has been for a good 30 seconds or do we wait for the flames to- Oh, thank God, there it goes!

This wedding was fun, hilarious, and filled with wonderful, wonderful people (I’m a bit biased, but best of were our mutual friends, Jeffrey and Lisa!)

Jessy and Bligh’s wedding day began at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Orlando.

Then it was off to the Winter Park Racquet Club! <3 Bligh proposed to Jessy at Winter Park’s Kraft Azalea Garden, which sits on the same lake as the Winter Park Racquet Club!

For years, Jessy was Lisa’s right hand girl at her wedding planning and coordinating company, E-Events. Jessy is truly like a third daughter to Lisa, and I tear up seeing these photos of her holding back tears at the ceremony!

My favorite part of the ceremony was when Jessy’s brother sang while their parents joined them for prayer.
