First Congregational Church was a great location for Kellie and Kevin’s Winter Park wedding. Originally built in 1884 and renovated in 1923, the church has classic architecture on the outside and gorgeous large windows that lit up the inside.

Kellie looked radiant walking down the long red velvet aisle. We loved her choice of colors – the bridesmaids looked beautiful in their long raspberry gowns and the bouquets by Peddles were amazing.

After the exchange of rings, the officiant performed Marry Me on guitar. The bride and groom exited the church through a wave of bubbles, and then all of the guests gathered for a big group photo on the steps.

The reception was held at Timacuan Country Club in Lake Mary. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the terrace, while we took the wedding party to the golf course for photos.

This wedding had a lot of special touches – an instagram hashtag to collect photos from guests, an AMAZING dessert table with all kinds of assorted goodies, and framed photos from their parent’s and grandparents’ weddings.

The DJ played a great mix of music that kept everyone of all ages dancing for hours – including a conga line. After the bouquet toss, Kevin surprised us all by running out in a cape and boxing gloves to Eye of the Tiger. He was ready to get that garter!

At the end of the night, guests gathered with sparklers outside to bid the bride and groom goodbye. It was a wonderful day – thank you for letting us be part of it!

Jessica and Robbie chose to do their engagement photos in beautiful downtown Orlando along Church Street. They chose Church Street with the old buildings and cobblestone streets. It’s a great contrast from the lush greenery of Leu Gardens, where their wedding reception will be next month.

We started on Church Street near the Ballroom and headed down to Orange Avenue where we took photos in front of some of the great Orlando landmarks including the SunTrust Building, the Grand Bohemian Hotel, the brand new Dr. Phillips Center and ended in front of City Hall. There’s so much amazing architecture and landmarks all within one block.

Jessica and Robbie were so comfortable in front of the camera and we had a great time. I’m very excited about their upcoming wedding at Holy Cross Catholic Church and Leu Gardens.

Keep an eye on the blog for photos from their wedding!

Here are some of our favorite photos from Liz and Nick’s engagement session at Lake Eola. We had a great time doing these photos in the heart of downtown Orlando. Lake Eola has a lot of great photo spots if you can convince the giant swans to move out of your way.

Liz and Nick were a lot of fun to work with and very comfortable in front of the camera. I’m honored to photograph their wedding this summer at First Congregational Church of Winter Park and Timacuan Country Club.

Please come back to see photos from their wedding!
