Wedding Photographer Steven had a great time capturing the intimate wedding of Stacey and Brad at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando! When Steven arrived, Stacey just finished her bridal hair and makeup at Marilyn Monroe Spas, in the main hotel building. Once she was done, we captured a few photos of her and her girls in their wedding day robes before she got into her gorgeous wedding dress! We then headed over to Brad’s suite for some detail shots of him getting ready and his mother placing his boutonnière on his vest! When everyone was ready, we took them outside separately with their bridal parties for some pre-ceremony portraits! Especially if couples are not doing a first look, we love to capture portraits prior to ceremony, and save some valuable cocktail hour time!
Their outdoor wedding ceremony took place at the Oak Terrace, under a beautiful live-oak tree, holding multiple hanging lanterns! The Joey Calderaio band provided some beautiful background music pre and post-ceremony! Officiated by Loni Tosi from Sensational Ceremonies, the couple read their vows, exchanged their rings then said their I-Do’s before their family and friends! After the ceremony, we captured a few family portraits and finished the session taking Stacey and Brad throughout the property for their bridal portraits, even on the putting range course! Once we were finished, we hopped into a Hyatt shuttle to Lakeside for the reception!
Their wedding reception was held in the Lakeside Casita which overlooked the main property across a beautiful lake! It’s amazing how quiet and tranquil that wedding location is while still being so close to the hotel! The ballroom was beautifully decorated by the team from Grandeos Events! They began with toasts and a delicious dinner from the catering team at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, and check out those mouth-watering pies from catering as well! The couple told us they are more ‘pie people’ rather than cake people, so why not include both?! After dinner, the Joey Calderaio band took over and kept everyone on the dance floor! Before we left, we took Stacey and Brad outside for some light-painting fun with our photographer Eric, with the beautiful hotel in the background! We really appreciate their patience, as these photos do take some time to setup and capture!! This was such a fun day, and we wish them SO MUCH happiness in their future together! Thank you for letting us share it with you and congratulations!!
