Our wedding photographer Michael, assisted by John, had such a fun time capturing Hannah and Joe’s wedding day at Highland Manor in Apopka! Along with the couples, we as photographers are so thankful that the Hilton Garden Inn was built right next door to the venue! Having the hotel right off property allows the whole bridal party to be close for minimal travel time and more time for portraits! Beautified by Bailey also did a fantastic job finishing on time, keeping us on track to get everything photographed before the wedding ceremony.
We photographed bridal party portraits, couple portraits, and family portraits before the ceremony by opting in to have a first look! This very emotional moment left both Hannah and Joe in tears as they saw each other for the first time, it even left us in tears! What do you think about Hannah’s bouquet? It is premium rented silk flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms, but what’s really cool is that her mother’s wedding dress was folded in acting as roses adding a nice personal touch!
Their outdoor wedding ceremony took place underneath Highland Manor’s iconic, historic live-oak tree! Their personal friend officiated the ceremony, and they shared, tears, laughs, a ring exchange, and of course the kiss in front of their closest family/friends! After their ceremony, we captured a big group photo on the porch (thank you Bonny for helping position everyone!), and a few more portraits before it was time to go in and party!
They both shared a choreographed first dance together (rehearsed with Arthur Murray Dance Centers) which was incredibly sweet, and they danced with their parents afterward! They then shared a delicious meal by Dubsdread Catering and then celebrated with DJ Live Productions providing all of the music! We also captured a hilarious shoe game, those are always a great time! We cannot forget about our East End Market downstairs neighbor, Gideon’s Bakehouse who provided the Cake and little cookie bites that were given out to all the wedding guests! We also want to give a huge shoutout to SugarPop Productions for being alongside us for the day capturing video of such a great wedding!
At the end of the wedding reception, they said goodbye to their guests with a fun ribbon exit! We can’t thank Hannah and Joe enough for bringing us with them on their wedding day and letting us share their love story! Congratulations you two!
