We were recently asked by our friends from Your Wedding TV to photograph a baby shower at Heathrow Country Club. We don’t get the chance to photograph many baby showers, so this was a treat! With many of our fellow creative wedding vendors participating, the room looked absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks again to Karen for inviting us!

Last week was the world premiere of Ideas to I Do, a new show produced by Your Wedding TV. The premiere was held at the Rosen Plaza on International Drive in Orlando and we were asked to photograph the show.

Ideas to I Do is a 30 minute long show full of tips for Florida brides. It features tours of some of Florida’s finest venues as well as some great ideas to help plan your wedding. The show is hosted by Amy Rogers, who we had the pleasure of doing engagement photos for.

After the world premiere screening of Ideas to I Do, guests were invited in to the ballroom at the Rosen Plaza where there was a gorgeous bridal show. The room looked amazing as many vendors collaborated to create some amazing tablescapes many of which were themed. From the chivari chairs to the place-settings and from the table cards to the decor and flowers it was beautiful and inspiring. Every bride clearly left the show with some great ideas.

One of the nicer things for me with this show was that other vendors were welcome to attend the premiere. So, I was able to visit with some of the great wedding vendors that I’ve grown to know over the years.

There was also a DJ on hand that had all of the guests – future brides and grooms and wedding vendors all out on the dance floor dancing the cha-cha slide. It was a great night and everyone had a fantastic time!

Here are some of the photos from the event. More images are available over on our Facebook page.
…..and yes, the food shown did look amazing in person too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Kelly and Mike got married several months ago at Harry P. Leu Gardens near downtown Orlando, Florida. Their wedding was on a warm, yet gorgeous sunny day in late May.

It had been about a year since the couple had asked us to photograph their wedding. Knowing how much fun I had doing their engagement photos in Cocoa Beach, I know this wedding was going to be a great time — and it was!

Leu Gardens


Leu Gardens is one of my favorite places in Orlando to take photographs. I love doing engagement and portrait sessions there. Although, it’s a hard place to plan for, as every time I go there a different area is in full bloom.

Their ceremony was held in the rose garden, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Most of the roses were in full bloom. What a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony, the reception was held in the Camellia room in the Leu House. White Rose Entertainment did a fantastic job, as always keeping the party going.

I did take the bride and groom outside just before sunset for some additional photos as the sun set over Lake Rowena.

Tardis Wedding Cake


Mike and Kelly had surprises for each other all day long. Kelly surprised Mike with a Rolls Royce to whisk them away after the reception. Mike surprised Kelly with plush elephants.

However, the biggest surprise of the day was a Tardis (Dr. Who) groom’s cake. Mike’s jaw dropped to the floor when Kelly took him to see the groom’s cake.

We wish the couple a lifetime of memories together. We hope you enjoy some of the photos from their wedding!
