So what do you do when the groom is wearing a bow tie, the bride is the only one who has tied his tie in years, nobody else around knows how to tie one, and the groom does not want to “see” the bride before the ceremony? Well you set up an impromptu meet and greet and have the groom swear not to open his eyes, as his soon to be bride ties his bow tie with a huge smile! Meet Carolyn and Dan, two incredibly down to earth people that we were fortunate enough to photograph their intimate wedding affair! You can tell by how these two interact and smile at each other that their love and respect for each other is deep and strong! We were excited to shoot at Henry Chapel at First Baptist Church, Orlando, as we had seen some beautiful images of the chapel and grounds. As we arrived, Carolyn was getting her hair and makeup done by the talented Wendy Wall from Gregory’s, Winter Park. It was cool watching her work and airbrush some of the makeup on. Wedding dress from David’s Bridal and bridesmaids dresses from Bridesmaids Inc., in Birmingham, AL. Striking, yet classy, flowers and decor at all venues throughout the day was provided by Molly McMahon with Velvet & Twine, a new floral company on the scene that produced some gorgeous displays. The tree lined aisle and formal ceremony was reminiscent of the royal wedding, but the southern charm and mood of the families, friends and couple, not to mention Carolyn’s home made sandwiches beforehand, projected a laid back, simplistic and comfortable atmosphere. After the ceremony concluded everybody was invited to The Renaissance at Lake Ivanhoe, Orlando for the reception. This luxury condo building has an elegant white Grand Salon/Lobby that can be used for events such as this. With soft piano music in the background, Carolyn and Dan strolled throughout the room, conversing with guests, then, cut into some delectable wedding cakes, including a super delicious peanut butter and chocolate groom’s cake. Before we knew it, these two were thanking their guests and saying goodbye. Good luck Carolyn & Dan and thank you again for including us on your special day!
