Once again we found ourselves at one of our favorite places to photograph, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for Patty and Cleveland’s wedding! We began in Patty’s bridal suite where we captured her hair and makeup preparations done by her friend Sydney! Kissimmee Florist then arrived with beautiful bouquets, floral arrangements and boutineers! We loved the matching bridesmaids shirts and thought it would be a great opportunity to use the Grand Cypress balcony for a quick photo shoot with the girls! While Patty and the girls were getting ready we headed over to Cleveland’s room to grab a few snapshots of him getting in his snazzy tuxedo from Uptown Tux! We headed back to capture the final touches of Patty getting into her dress and still had some time for some beautiful portraits in the hotel room before the first look!
For their intimate outdoor first look, we set up Cleveland behind the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress and let his bride-to-be walk up behind and tap him on his shoulder. Patty was so much fun and really played up this moment for Cleveland and us! We love when brides get into it and we think the photos show the emotion perfectly! The great thing about the first look is that we can capture most, if not all of the bride and groom’s portraits before the ceremony and we did just that! We took Patty and Cleveland all around the Hyatt property to get the prefect photos!
Before we knew it, the ceremony was starting and with the help of Rev. Glynn Ferguson of Sensational Ceremonies the two exchanged rings, vows and had a kiss to seal the deal! We loved their selfie while walking up the isle!
After the ceremony, the reception started with the help of Sacha and RaShall of Madd Vybz Entertainment and some great uplighting from PSAV! The music played all night, only slowing down to allow for the cake cutting and bouquet toss! Once the party was over, Patty and Cleveland shared one more dance and then exited through a line of all their guests! Special thanks for Briana of Grand EOS Events for helping put this whole day together with her wedding planning!
We want to wish many more years of happiness to Patty and Cleveland and send a big thank you for making our day so much fun!
