Orlando Wedding Photography Blog

By Kevin Graham

I first met Maria and Blake in April, when I did an engagement photo session with them at Dr. Phillips Park. Maria was already in wedding preparation mode — even her cell phone ringtone was changed to the bridal march. [Link to engagement photos]

Fast forward six months to a beautiful October day in Orlando. The bride and her attendants spent a relaxed morning getting ready and taking some pre-wedding formal photos at the Orlando Hilton Bonnet Creek resort, while the guys kicked back with some football and dressed for the day.

The ceremony was held at the Marie Williams Chapel at the First Baptist Church of Orlando. As the sun set over Lake Jessamine, an elegant nighttime reception kicked off at Cypress Grove Park, where guests enjoyed fantastic food and music. There was also a sweets table with everything from Skittles to Hershey’s kisses!

Guests blew bubbles at the bride & groom as they exited the 1925 estate house – a perfect end to a perfect day.

Special thank you to Jason and Sara who served as assistants for this wedding.

Congratulations Maria and Blake and thank you for including us in your day! You have our permission to enjoy that ringtone a little longer!
