Wedding Photographer Nelson and assistant Julissa had a great time capturing the wedding of Alyssa and Shane at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando! Nelson started their wedding day capturing Alyssa’s bridal details, getting her hair done by Anita from iStudioSalons and makeup by Gilded Beauty by Sonia! While she was finishing up, we visited Shane’s groom suite to capture some prep shots and portraits of him and his groomsmen. Before we headed to the ceremony location, we captured Alyssa’s mother helping Alyssa into her gorgeous wedding dress, such a sweet moment! We then headed outside for formal portraits of Alyssa and her bridal party, and then it was time to head over to their outdoor wedding ceremony location!
The ceremony was held at the Cypress Pointe at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. Officiated by Katherine Imundi, Shane waited in anticipation for Alyssa as she walked down the aisle with her father! But before Alyssa’s dad gave her away to Shane, he made sure everyone’s hands were sanitized with some hand sanitizer, and then gave her away, so funny!!! The couple then held a hand-fasting ceremony which was then followed by the rings, a pinky-swear promise, vows, and then, of course, the kiss to end the ceremony! After the wedding ceremony, we captured a few family portraits and finished the session taking Alyssa and Shane throughout the hotel for their portraits, including a picture with Merlot, the infamous Scarlet Macaw that greets guest every day at the hotel! As soon as we were done, it was time for their wedding reception!
The reception was held at La Coquina ballroom, which was beautifully decorated by the team at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress while the table had lovely floral centerpieces by Raining Roses! As the wedding party made their way into the reception, David Paige Music did a great job with introductions, which was then followed by a special choreographed first dance! This was followed by the speeches and the rest of the first dances! Before the guests danced the night away, it was time to enjoy the great tasting food, drinks, and a delicious piece of wedding cake from the catering team at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress! After the cake cutting, we headed outside for a few extra sunset portraits with Hyatt in the background! After some fun dancing time on the dance floor, it was time to say goodbye to Alyssa and Shane! Danielle from Just Marry was such a great help throughout the wedding day, making sure everything ran perfectly smooth, but also helped us coordinate the sparkler sendoff as the couple made their exit! This was such a fun day, and we wish them SO MUCH happiness in their future together! Thank you guys for letting us share it with you!
