Well, this wedding may take the cake for the most images I’ve ever blogged. But I truly couldn’t help myself because it was soooo full of pretty details! It was such a beautiful day, Dennise and Brian are probably the most fun, laid back, happy and in-love couple I’ve ever worked with, and their family and friends were seriously just awesome and so fun! They made Jessica and I feel so welcome and the entire day was truly a wonderful experience. Dennise and Brian are the type of couple that are so in love with each other, that they make every else around them fall in love with them too. Handwritten, heartfelt vows melt my photographer-heart every time, and when we see a groom tear up as his beautiful bride walks down the aisle, ahhhh! It’s like wedding magic! Dennise and Brian chose Casa Feliz in Winter Park for their ceremony and reception venue, which was a perfect backdrop for their vibrant Spanish theme. I just cannot get enough of her colorful flowers and those earrings! A few of my favorite things about this wedding – one of my 2011 brides, Sarah, referred me to Dennise and I got to see her and her hubby again; The groomsmen apparently tricked Jessica into thinking that Dennise’s brother, Eddie, was the groom, and I think poor Jess spent about 15 minutes doing portraits of him before they let her in on the joke! Dennise had a man of honor vs. a maid or matron of honor, a new trend that I love; Dennise’s sweet mom made her wedding cake and cupcakes — aren’t they just gorgeous? (They were very tasty too…of course Jess and I had to eat one after she insisted, ha!) But really my favorite thing about the whole day, and probably the reason I just adored this wedding and couple so much, was the overwhelming feeling of seeing two people who are clearly just meant to be together promise to love each other forever. Now, I am admittedly, a hopeless romantic but something tells me that these two have a long, happy, funny, sweet, amazing life together ahead of them. It was such an honor to get to capture their love, here are a few million of my favorite images from their day!
