Orlando Wedding Photographer Michael and Nelson had a great time capturing the wedding of Colleen and Doug at the St. James Cathedral Catholic Church and Ceviche Tapas Bar in Orlando, Florida! Colleen had her hair and makeup done by Stacey from Kristy’s Artistry & Design and the rest of her bridal preparations at the Grand Bohemian Hotel Downtown! Meanwhile Doug got ready at his private home! Once everyone was ready, we headed over to St. James Cathedral Catholic Church for their indoor church wedding ceremony! Father William Sweeny, who has officiated many of Colleen’s family weddings and even baptized her when she was young, had the honor of officiating Colleen and Doug’s I do’s and have them seal with a kiss!!
After their ceremony, we made a portrait pit-stop at The Lodge in Downtown Orlando to have some drinks and recreate the day when (and where) Doug met Colleen for the first time! It was so sweet to recreate her sitting on a barrel when he came over and gave her some cheesy pick up line while they were both dressed formally! We then walked over to the bridge over Church S. for great bridal portraits before the sunset!
We then proceeded to their indoor wedding reception at Ceviche Tapas & Bar! DJ Michael Hill from Weddings Only DJ Entertainment was doing a fantastic job keeping the guests moving all night long! The floral arrangements were created by Lee Forrest Design and gave the room such a great look! Right when the guests were getting ready for dinner, the Central Florida Irish Dancers came out and performed an awesome Irish jig for Colleen and Doug! Colleen and her Mom were having so much fun with it that they joined in! After the dance, Colleen and Doug cut their beautiful cake created by Nothing Bundt Cakes, which certainly made everyone’s mouth water! At the end of the night, Colleen and Doug said their goodbyes through an epic sparkler sendoff exit into their limo (provided by VIP Transportation Group!) This was such a beautiful wedding and we would like to thank Colleen and Doug for letting us be a part of their special day!! Congrats to these two and best wishes!!!
Officiant: Father William Sweeny
