We’ve been anxiously waiting for Julie and Jon’s wedding day for a while now, especially after their fun engagement session in Mount Dora! For their wedding day, wedding photographer Michael spent the day at Highland Manor, honestly one of our favorite wedding venues in the Orlando area! Michael arrived to the venue to capture pre-wedding preparations, with Julie’s hair and makeup services by Kristy Alonzo of Kristy’s Artistry Design Team prior to our arrival! The beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets/boutonnieres were created by Atmosphere’s Floral! Once Michael captured some prep photos, it was time for their outdoor wedding ceremony, underneath Highland Manor’s iconic, historic oak tree! Their wedding ceremony was officiated by Pastor Hector V, and included a sweet knot-tying ceremony, and of course the kiss! After ceremony, we spent cocktail hour capturing their family, bridal party, and personal portraits around the venue, making sure to include a few images with the turtle (for Jon :) ).
Their wedding reception took place inside Highland’s ballroom, with beautiful uplighting provided by Soundwave Entertainment! After their first dances and introductions, we enjoyed the delicious dinner from Dubsdread Catering, then it was time to party! DJ Les of Soundwave kept the dance floor packed with all of their guests, and check out that beautiful cake from The Naked Cupcake, which of course we captured them cutting! Although it rained through most of their wedding reception, we were still able to capture their fun bubble and glow wand send off at the end of the wedding night. Julie and Jon had a smile on their face since the day we met them, to say we enjoyed photographing them is a huge understatement. Thank you guys so much for inviting us into your love story, and we cannot wait to see you again someday. Congratulations!!
