CYPRESS GROVE ORLANDO FLORIDA WEDDING

It feels like the kind of love that will last a few lifetimes.

Cassie and Chase’s wedding day started at The Grand Bohemian in Downtown Orlando with the bride and her bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done. The excitement was obvious as everyone was eager to help and make sure that everything went well for the bride. They were lots of laughing, nervous butterflies, drinking mimosas, Instagraming and the final touch... ironing Cassie’s veil.  

After that I was supposed to met up with the groom, Chase, at his home. But as a last minute change he wanted to have a beer with his groomsmen at a local dive bar. It was a great and personal touch. Chase said it best when he asked me if it was okay to meet at a bar instead of the getting ready at home. He said to me, "We all know what putting on a jacket looks like." He rocks!

I left the boys at the bar and headed to Cypress Grove Estate House in Orlando to capture Cassie getting dressed. Cassie’s wedding gown was a gorgeous Bliss by Monique Lhuillier that she wore with some blue platform wedge shoes. She looked and all her bridesmaids looked stunning. Her sister and both her mother and Chase’s mother assisted her while getting ready.

Cypress Grove is truly a unique location. The vintage feel is both stylish and timeless, perfect for a modern bride.

Cassie and Chase had a first look and it was perfect. Chase was nervous and excited to see his bride. They had an intimate and quiet moment together. They exchange letters they had wrote for each other. It’s always wonderful to see a couple take this time to themselves plus it really opens the opportunity to enjoy the rest of the day in a much more relaxed way.  It is perfect for the nervous groom who might hold his emotions during the ceremony. It allows him to feel and express his emotions  in private with his bride to be.

After a short family portrait session, I decided to send the bride and groom to enjoy their cocktail hour so I could capture the amazing wedding decor that the RW Events had designed for them, along with Cheryl Special Event Floral and Sweets by The Yum Yum Truck.

I really wanted to do their portraits during the twilight hour. I love the light once the sun hits the horizon. The light is warm and cool at the same time and it adds a powerful and romantic feel to the portraits.

Their reception was just an incredibly fun party. Cassie and Chase are loved my many. They have tons of close friends and there family adore them.

It truly is easy to love them.  I am glad I got to witness their beautiful day in the sun and I am honored to have been the one to capture their story. I hope you enjoy these frames from their wedding day.
