Allison and John were married a few months ago at the beautiful Highland Manor in Apopka, Florida. Highland Manor was built more than 110 years ago as a private residence. The manor, now operated by Dubsdread Catering, has transformed into one of the nicest venues in central Florida.

The bridal party had the entire second floor of historic manor house to get ready. With the hardwood floors and high ceilings, it was a beautiful backdrop for wedding preparations and photos.

The ceremony took place on the front lawn under the majestic oak tree. Allison walked down the aisle carrying a bouquet of sunflowers and light blue hydrangeas.

The reception was held in the main ballroom, which was decorated with gold Chivari chairs and gorgeous chandeliers. Allison did an amazing job with all of the personal touches, from the centerpieces to the menu cards drawn to look like chalkboards. Everything continued the sunflower theme, including the cake made by the bride’s mom.

During the welcome, they emphasized the good food, and they were definitely right! We’ve never been to a wedding with such good Southern food. The fried chicken, ribs and barbecue were amazing. After dinner, DJ Bracken took over the party and the guests filled the dance floor.

Congratulations Allison and John – thank you for choosing us to be your wedding photographers!

Last month, I posted photos from Miranda and Jeff’s wonderful wedding at Lakeside Hall in Orlando. Several weeks later we met the couple again in Winter Garden to have a “Rock the Dress” session. To see photos from their Orlando Wedding, please Click Here.

Jeff is a firefighter with the Winter Garden Fire Department. Initially when Miranda said she wanted to do a rock the dress session, my response was, “Can we get the truck?” When I arrived at the fire station, I was excited to use the fire truck as a background for some of the initial photos. Jeff put on his gear for some of the photos as well.

Jeff changed out of his firefighter gear, and we picked up Abby for some more photos. Abby is a black labrador retriever who loves people and will lick you to death if you let her. We headed to Chapin Station in Winter Garden to take a few photos with their lab.

We ended the day with a beautiful sunset over Lake Apopka followed by some delicious pizza at Winter Garden Pizza Company.

We had a great time and it was so much fun doing this rock the dress session with these two.

I hope you enjoy these pictures!
