We photographed Lisa and Olivier’s wedding earlier this year at the Historic Dubsdread in downtown Orlando, Florida. You may remember this fun couple from their engagement session at Leu Gardens. (Link to Images)
Both Lisa and Olivier were very involved in the planning of the wedding. Lisa coordinated so many of the special details for this wedding – from the unique centerpieces to the cermony decor to the color coordinated candy table. Everything was perfect for this Spring wedding.
In the months leading up to the wedding, Olivier secretly practiced guitar and surprised Lisa with a performance of Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars. None of the guests at the wedding, including the bride, were aware of his hidden talent.
Lisa and Olivier decided to do a first look – where the couple sees each other dressed up for the first time on the wedding day prior to the ceremony. It’s a more private moment than waiting until the ceremony.
After their time, we took some photos of Lisa and Olivier along the fairway of the golf course. It was very nice to take these photos prior to the ceremony, thus allowing the couple a chance to enjoy cocktail hour.
The bride and groom chose Dubsdread for its’ warm rustic feel. Under the giant oak tree in the courtyard, the couple exchanged vows. Following the ceremony, the guests entered the main ballroom for the reception.
Dubsdread is fantastic in that it can take on different personalities. The courtyard and ballroom have a warm, inviting feel to them. The ballroom has dark wood beams and a large stone fireplace that was perfect for the rustic feel this couple wanted.
The Florida room has more of a modern country club feel with its bright colors and windows overlooking the beautiful Dubsdread golf course.
It was also very convenient for the many out-of-town guests to have the ceremony and reception at the same facility.
At the end of the night, Lisa and Olivier got in to a 1957 Rolls Royce which whisked them off to the Ritz Carlton Orlando.
Congratulations again Lisa and Olivier! We hope everyone enjoys the images from this fantastic wedding.
