Wedding Photographer Steven Miller and assistant Megan had a blast capturing the wedding of Jenna and Jason at Sun Dream Yacht Charter in Ft. Lauderdale, FL! We began their big day at the GalleryOne Doubletree Suites by Hilton Hotel where both Jenna and Jason were preparing for their wedding in their respective suites! Steven began the day in Jenna’s suite capturing her bridal preparations and then final touches on her hair by Jennifer from Southern Roots Hair Salon! Steven then hopped over to capture some portraits of Jason before we setup downstairs for the first look! We then headed back to Jenna to catch her getting into her Morilee wedding dress from The Bridal Gallery of Orlando, what a stunning dress; she was gorgeous! Once Jenna was ready, we escorted her outside (while keeping her hidden from her guests in the lobby!) for her first look with Jason! After the first look, we jumped into portraits and bridal party portraits, but of course Mother Nature was playing games with us that day, but Jenna and Jason were up for the challenging dance! Eventually, we were able to capture some great photos before it was time to board the Yacht for the wedding day celebration!
The ceremony was actually held on the Caprice Yacht for Sun Dream Yacht Charter! This is such a unique and special way of celebrating a wedding, on a boat! As the guests arrived, they were given custom Yeti cups to keep full with their favorite drinks throughout the night! As soon as the guests made their way up to the top deck, Jenna arrived, escorted by her father, onto the Yacht, for a pretty awesome processional! Before we knew it, the yacht was departing into the inter-coastal waters, which began the wedding ceremony! The ceremony was officiated by the yacht’s captain on the top deck where the couple read their vows, exchanged their wedding bands and sealed the ceremony with the much-awaited kiss! After the ceremony, we took some family portraits and squeezed in a few amazing sunset bridal portraits before the wedding reception began!
The reception was held on the second floor of the Caprice Yacht which offers a beautiful view through its bay windows of South Florida’s coastal shores! The Sun Dream Yacht Charters is such a perfect venue because it provides a full wedding experience that takes care of all the details, especially bar and catering! The great wedding coordinators Cheryl and Sheri made sure the catering, beverages, flowers, decoration, DJ/Entertainment, and videography were all perfect and incredible! As the evening went on, Jenna’s father gave the toast and we snuck the entire wedding guest list outside for an awesome group photo with the inter-coastal as their backdrop! This entire day was such an unforgettable wedding experience, and we cannot thank Jenna and Jason enough for letting us share this special day with them both! We hope you two enjoy your sneak peek, and thanks for welcoming us into the family again!!
