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 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!
