What happens when a bride plans for a bright and colorful wedding and it rains the entire day? If you are Sarah, your infectious smile and personality overcome it all, and you wind up with a beautiful wedding, exactly as intended!

Sarah and Josh’s wedding ceremony was planned to be outside in the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne with the reception at the I.W. Phillips House. When we realized that the rain wasn’t going to let up, the wedding guests moved in to the reception area, and the ceremony and dancing took place on the porch of the house.

The couple chose to go with vibrant colors for the flowers and bridesmaid dresses that fit their personalities. Guests received colorful sunglasses for the reception, which was fun to see considering the weather outdoors.

I was so glad that they were willing to venture in to the courtyard after the ceremony for some quick photos – I love how the photos under the umbrella came out.

Thank you again Sarah and Josh for including us as part of your wedding. We had a great time!

Please enjoy some of the photos from the day!

Congratulations to Ilgin and Vikash! They were recently married in Istanbul, Turkey, where Ilgin grew up. They had a second wedding reception at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando for all of their friends and family. What a great reason for Ilgin to wear her wedding dress a second time!

Rosen Shingle Creek is a beautiful property with so many wonderful places to take photos. After taking some in the lobby, we headed outdoors for photos along the golf course. As we were out there, a ladybug decided to land on Ilgin’s bouquet and it stayed with us the whole time — how’s that for good luck!

After family photos and cocktail hour, we peeked into the Sand Lake ballroom – The room was exquisite! From the lighting and table settings to the gold chivari chairs and the 3-tiered cake, I knew the guests were about to have a wonderful evening. The staff at Rosen Shingle Creek did a wonderful job at transforming the room into something magical.

Ilgin and Vikash danced their first dance to The Dave Matthews Band. After toasts and dinner, the floor opened up to some of the most energetic dancing we’ve ever seen – guests were having such a great time!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed photographing their day.

Congratulations again to Ilgin and Vikash!

Here are some of my favorite photos from Stacie and Hunter’s engagement session earlier this year. They chose to do their session in a quaint park in downtown Orlando, bringing along their three dogs. The Yorkies were happy to pose for photos, while Sally (a Spaniel mix) was more excited to see the squirrels.

I’m very excited to be a part of their wedding this weekend. Their ceremony will be at the Orange County Regional History Center with a reception at The Rosalind Club. They’ve been a great couple to work with – Stacie has so many great ideas and every detail she’s revealed has made me even more excited about the wedding.

Stay tuned for photos!
