Orlando Wedding Photographers Steven Miller and Michael had such a great time capturing the wedding day of Jonell and Brendan!! They picked quite a perfect venue as well, Paradise Cove, in the heart of Orlando!! This venue is nestled right in the middle of the tourist district of Orlando, but you’d never know it upon setting foot on the sandy beach of Paradise Cove, it offers such a peaceful, private atmosphere! We began the day capturing Jonell’s bridal preparations within her private cottage on-property! Her hair and makeup services were provided by Before the Aisle, and they were helpful in getting us some great prep photos! All the while, Jonell and her ladies were playing a riveting round of Monopoly Deal, and it was hilarious when she jokingly added a particular piece on the table! Once Jonell was ready and in her stunning wedding dress, we took Brendan outside and set him up for their intimate first look right on the water! Grabbing the flowers from Weddings by Carly Ane’s, we captured their bridal party portraits then took them around Paradise Cove for some personal portraits of just the two of them! It was quite a hot day, so we let them head back in and relax before their outdoor ceremony!
Their Uncle Daryn officiated their beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony, after Brendan made his dramatic approach via boat!! They exchanged their own hilarious and sweet vows before saying I-Do and sealing the wedding ceremony with the kiss!! We then captured their family portraits and just a few more personal portraits before moving over to the pavilion for their outdoor wedding reception! Their details were so awesome, with linens and the delicious dinner provided by Cocktails Catering, the beautiful wedding cake by Magnolia Cakes & Confections, and of course DJ Les and Danny of Soundwave Entertainment providing the fun photobooth, wedding uplighting, and of course rocking the dance floor all night! Soundwave truly does a great job at mixing music that the couple and their guests want to hear, while providing gorgeous uplighting and pinspotting, which work so well for our photos! We snuck Jonell and Brendan out to the beach for a few night portraits (though Orlando doesn’t offer very dark skies), and their grand exit took place on a boat of all things! They actually let Steven onto the boat for their sendoff, and Steven captured a few extra portraits on the boat before saying goodbye! Special thanks to Daniel and his wedding team at Paradise Cove for their help and planning! These two are SUCH a great couple, we can tell they are going to make an amazing team in their life, and we cannot wait to see them again someday!
