Wedding Photographers Steven and Michael had a wonderful time capturing the wedding of Cheri and Keith at Paradise Cove in Orlando, Florida! It’s hard to believe that such a gorgeous and private wedding venue can be nestled right around all of the Disney properties and International Drive, in the heart of the tourist district! Along with videographer Jason Densberger from Bright Brands Media, we began our day with Michael heading out to the Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista to capture Keith and the groomsmen as they got ready! Steven began the day with Cheri, who was already at Paradise Cove’s bridal cottage, where she was getting her bridal hair and makeup done by Hair on the Run! Once Cheri was ready, she requested to have a first look with her parents before she had one with Keith!. It was such a heartwarming feeling to see Cheri parents look at their daughter in her beautiful wedding gown by Maggie Sottero Designs from The Dressing Room bridal boutique in Celebration, Florida, it just brought happy tears to us all at that moment! This is what makes first looks so worth it for us!!
Once Keith arrived we set up his first look with Cheri, which was super sweet and emotional! Cheri definitely wiped away a few tears from Keith! :) Afterwards, we had time to capture some of the bridal party portraits and squeezed in some personal portraits before the ceremony began! As the guest began to settle into their seats overlooking the lake they were surprised to see Keith’s grand entrance to the ceremony in a speedboat! Shortly after with the officiant Valerie Trucker, Keith and Cheri read their vows and performed a cord ceremony! After the ceremony and their important kiss, we captured the family portraits followed by more personal portraits of the bride and groom before heading over to the reception area, which was also held at the Paradise Cove in their covered pavilion.
DJ Les of Soundwave DJ Entertainmnt did a fantastic job playing tunes that kept the dance floor full before and after the delicious wedding dinner from Cocktails Catering. The cake was made by Delia’s Carrlop Cakes which looked beautiful and sweet among all the decoration and flowers which were provided and designed by the Bride and the Mother of the Bride. We got a chance to sneak Cheri and Keith out during the party for some fun night shots over the water which showed off Soundwave’s awesome uplighting. Soundwave is VERY known for their uplighting of both the trees and the pavilion of Paradise Cove, which adds so much color to our images!! The whole wedding day ran smoothly thanks to the wedding planners from Runway Events!!! At the end of the night, the couple executed a perfect glow stick exit, running to their getaway Ford Mustang car!! It was such a fun day and we wish the couple SO MUCH happiness in their future together! Thank you for letting us share it with you!
