Wedding Photographer Steven Miller and Nelson traveled to Indian Harbour Beach in Florida for Hannah and Zach’s wedding day! We began the day capturing Hannah’s bridal preparations at the Crowne Plaza Oceanfront in Melbourne, as she was finishing her hair/makeup by M3 Makeup! We arrived just in time to capture Hannah and her girls popping champagne on the balcony, such a funny moment! Once we captured her bridal details, we hopped over to Zach’s room to say hello, then proceeded over to Harbour House Oceanfront Venue to capture her wedding dress from Bridal Gown Studio Orlando, and groom preparations with Zach! We also met up with Corban and Mandy of Love and Lustre, who we were so honored to share the day with! After they were both ready, it was almost ceremony time! First, Hannah shared a first look with her father in her suite, then Nelson took Zach outside for their own first look. However, there was surprise coming for Zach. Instead of turning around to see Hannah, he got a beautiful glimpse of Hannah’s brother in a wedding dress, absolutely hilarious!! Then Hannah came out for the real first look, where they were able to see each other before the ceremony. This also allowed us to capture their bridal party and personal portraits earlier in the day, which is very helpful for a wedding timeline! Check out the creative wooden bouquets and boutonnieres created by Pine and Petal Weddings! These were beautiful, and we didn’t have to worry about damaging them with group hugs!
Their wedding ceremony took place right on the beach, officiated by Neremy Bell! With their toes in the sand, they exchanged their vows, rings, and a sand ceremony before their kiss! We captured their family portraits, and right before guests proceeded to cocktail hour, Hannah and Zach asked all of their guests to head over to the beach for a group photo, and a ceremony throwing a shell into the ocean together! Steven took a chance by standing in the water to capture the moment, thankfully no photographers were injured lol!
Their wedding reception took place back inside the Harbour House, with DJ Shane lighting up the room with his great uplighting! DJ Shane led us through the introductions, dances, and dinner provided by Executive Catering Florida! Their beautiful wedding cake was created by Cakes So Simple! Hannah’s parents had an amazing surprise for our couple during the wedding dinner, they put on a video (with help from Love and Lustre) with family, friends, and even a few celebrities wishing them a beautiful wedding from afar, their reactions were priceless! We loved that Hannah and Zach said goodbye to all of their guests through a sparkler sendoff. This was so sweet, and we thank them both so much for having us capture their wedding day. Congratulations you two!! :)
