Jennifer + Raphael : December Disney Wedding
For the first time in years, Nate and I will be taking the last two weeks of December off. We’re moving into our forever home days before Christmas!!
SO with that being said, I’m trying to get some preview photos for everyone since we won’t have the rest of their photos done for another 4-6 weeks when we’re back in an office again! <3
First up? Jennifer and Raphael. <3
I don’t know where to start with these two except to say I think if I could clone a Root couple, this may just be the one I’d choose!
Our closest friends and family have heard about Raphael for the past 18 months from Oliver. Raph was so kind to give our fire truck-loving four year old a tour of Reedy Creek’s Fire Station and he has been in our daily conversations ever since. (Not a single ounce of exaggeration there!)
Jennifer is a true picture of beauty and patience- graciously rolling with every punch Covid took to her wedding plans. I think this was the third(?) date she booked with us and I was overjoyed for them that this one stuck. Between the perfect weather and Voices of Liberty singing holiday songs during their wedding reception, it’s hard to imagine this wedding *not* taking place in December!
Because they’ve waited faaaaar too long for some wedding photos, I’m not gonna make them wait anymore. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If Ollie had a cell phone, this would 10000% be his lock screen photo! <3
THIS. FIRST. LOOK.
They had the sweetest private vow exchange during their first look!
Top ten favorite wedding moment everrrrr right here! Voices of Liberty. <3
Jennifer and Raphael, you’re gonna be stuck with us forever! We love y’all to pieces. <3
Alex + Aaron : Disney’s Wedding Pavilion Ceremony and Epcot Reception
I. Loved. This. Day. <3
Alex and Aaron met on a beach during a Tim McGraw concert at the Tortuga Music Festival. Alex is one of three sisters, Aaron is one of three brothers! But the greatest thing about them is their pup, Hercules! You may have seen the post about their engagement session last week, and wedding day Herc did. not. disappoint. They live in Orlando for once (most of our Disney couples live out of state!), so this means we get to make them our local friends now. <3
One of my favorite details from their wedding morning were these cufflinks Alex had made for Aaron- So so sweet!
Guess who dropped by for a quick hello – Hercules and his cousin, Prince! <3 We’ve seen a lot of embroidered parent handkerchiefs over the years, but these had little Mickey embroidered details at the bottom! :) Also, random fact : Alex’s mom is the gorgeous woman kissing her cheek in this photo, and I genuinely thought she was one of her sisters when I first walked in the room!! Alex’s wedding gift from Aaron was this beautiful “A” charm from Tiffany’s. <3 I loved all of our portraits of Alex, but I think this one with Hercules is my faaaaavorite! (Sorry, Aaron!) Bridesmaids seeing her for the first time!! Only Alex’s sisters knew what her dress looked like! :) Loooooove this one from her father/daughter first look with her bridesmaids looking on. <3 We took them to “my” fountain at the Grand where they stood back to back reading letters to each other before turning around… … And they had quite the audience! Thanks, Spring Break! ;) Tooooo many favorites, but this one’s way up there! If it *had* to rain on a wedding day, at least it was this one, which followed my 2 wishes : Not during portrait time, and with a bride who smiled through it!! :) Off to Epcot for fireworks tiiiiiiime! I love this one of Alex and Aaron just before being announced into their reception. Sneaky Nate! :) Another favorite!!! Alex’s father daughter dance. <3 And the award for best bride faces ever… <3 Alex and Aaron, we love y’all!!!! Happy Honeymooooooon!! <3
